sound interested, and somehow coax them into moving around so they could be videotaped? >> right. >> the d.a.'s office released these videos a little more than a year after the two were arrested. this comes on the heels of a 160-page report that details how phillip garrido outsmarted a broken system. >> reporter: the man responsible for phillip garrido's 431-year prison sentence didn't mince words. >> we should all be angry about it. >> reporter: the district attorney says the failure of the parole system was so bad in handling phillip garrido. >> we need to release enough information so that the public is able to grasp and understand the magnitude of it. >> reporter: pearson released 162 pages of blistering documents, many of them once confidential that paint both the state and federal parole
and criminal justice system as such a failure hollywood couldn't script words like this. the 1998 psychiatrist that described phillip garrido like a pot boiling with no outlet valve. still he was released from lifetime parole and almost immediately went on a mass bender say the reports. not only testing positive twice but submitted two diluted specimens in august 2009. a nervous staffer even commented she believed the parolee is close to going off but reports show no probation officers took steps to reoffend phillip garrido not even after he admitted to using marijuana to flush out his system. phillip garrido was even aloud to accept a job at a nursing home. his supervisor reported to state probation offices the parolee had been contacting nursing home employees looking for drugs. still the report finds no action was taken by his
probation officer. yet the most outrageous finding is that phillip garrido filled a fake penis with warm mountain dew soda to fool one mandatory drug test. so an agent was sent to his walnut avenue home near antioch where his backyard encampment was in full view but the agent found nothing out of the ordinary. state senator ted gaines is now backing legislation that will -- >> look at that authority that the parole board has. >> reporter: what authority? right now inmates are not released on the crimes that sent them to prison but how successful they are completing therapy behind bars. >> now, those documents go on to show that when phillip garrido was released to california in 1999 the state failed even the minimum level of probation supervision. in fact, in the first year of
probation no agent visited his antioch home for a full year. six agents were assigned but none performed the visits. >> the d.a. has to be making a point that phillip garrido is not the only one. >> absolutely not the only one. and i think that's why it was so imperative to release these documents to show what gaping inaccuracies exist in the current system. >> yes. all right, robert, thank you. >> absolutely. the debt deal is a done deal just a day before the deadline but despite the agreement stocks plummeted again. the dow had its worst day in two months tumbling 266 points. closing below 12,000 as investors reacted to more weaknesses in the economy. still, president obama calls the debt deal an important first step in the debate of
washington's wallet. more now on the road ahead. >> reporter: he put the ink on the paper but president obama didn't thank or congratulate congress as he typically does after major bills are passed. >> it was long and contentious debate. >> reporter: instead he looked forward. >> we have got to do everything in our power to grow this economy and put america back to work. >> the yays 74 and nays 46. >> reporter: the emergency bill increases the government's borrowing limit and makes 1 trillion-dollars$1 trillion in cuts. the battle lines for the task are already being drawn. at issue whether tax revenue is in the mix. >> well, there won't be tax increases. that's one thing this committee won't even consider and i don't think they should. >> we have had too much talk the last few days of republicans as early as this
morning, republican leaders in the senate saying there will be no revenue. that's not going to happen. >> reporter: the president didn't let the points slide either. >> everyone will have to chip in. that's only fair. >> reporter: there's also some question whether the committee could be effective at all. >> i wouldn't focus on what would happen if they didn't function because i think they are. >> reporter: if the committee fails massive across the board cuts would be imposed automatically. but for now after a long bitter fight congress is on recess until next month. cbs news, washington. >> the debt deal may be sealed but there is another senate stale mate. the partial f.a.a. shutdown. the new state-of-the-art air traffic control room at oak land international airport is on hold because of the impasse and 60 workers have been laid off. the mayor wants funding restored to construction can resume. >> it hurts immediate jobs, it
hurts long-term jobs and it is not necessary. there is no reason why congress can't move this forward. >> congress also paused funding on 100 other airport projects nationwide, leaving thousands of employees out of work. the government is likely to lose more than $1 billion in revenue since lawmakers left town for a month without resolving the standoff much the f.a. a. insists safety is not affected. firefighters say a home in santa clara is a hotel loss following a two-alarm fire earlier tonight. the fire broke out shortly after 6:00 p.m. firefighters say the house was fully engulfed when they got there. this video shot by a neighbor shows the fire coming through the roof of the home. now the family of that living there wasn't home but that car was destroyed. >> the fire did go to a second alarm and we were fortunate that the house appears to be a
total loss. >> neighbors say the family had only been in that home for about a month. the cause of the fire hasn't been determined yet. police have canceled an amber alert for a 16-year-old boy in antioch but there are still plenty of questions about what happened. hasan ford turned up safe about midnight last night nearly eight hours after it appeared that he was kidnapped during an armed robbery of the barber shop where he works. but a neighbor says she saw him shortly after he was allegedly abducted. ford has still not talked to police. the robbery suspect is still missing. the man who started a fire last october in a sacramento mall will spend 15 years in federal prison. a judge sentenced alexander pijay today. in court the judge said the fire may have been a cry for help but it was a wrong cry for help. caused more than $55 million in damage. the woman suspected of

his cell phone so she can call police and he began to follow the suspect. >> made us very proud. made us very proud of our driver. he went above and bond. >> reporter: president of luxor cab where the driver works. he says the new cameras in the cab are the latest technology taking streaming images not only inside the cab but also a 180-degree view out the front window. but they were not expected to help nab street robbers. >> it is for accident liability. if an accident takes place we can review the accident to see who is really at fault. >> reporter: they arrested an 18-year-old and charged him with second-degree robbery. we showed the video to someone that walks here every day. >> right here. it is horrible. you don't think that this is a high crime area. but it is great that he was a good samaritan and rescued her.
