10:05 am
>> based on past circumstances, i could not take the chance as it relates to one student or our staff that serve our students. it is important that in the last four hours, this city, this community, has come together on behalf of our students, our students that are in the regular schools, our students that are in the charter schools, that are authorized by this school board, we are taking all sorts of precaution. our plant managers are walking the campus with law enforcement people. our plant managers and principals, with law enforcement, are looking at all of our schools, small, large schools, et cetera.
10:06 am
we have made sure that our parents are notified through connect ed messages and we have repeated that time and time again. those students that walked to school, especially young children, neighborhood children, we have had the principals meet and administrators meet them at the gate of the school and they were not dismissed until parents came to pick them up, a guardian, et cetera. we are doing everything possible to make sure that children are safe, but that also students and parents understand that the precautions we are taking are done in a calming way, are done in a way that is in the best interest of everybody in this
10:07 am
particular city. not only is it the city of l.a., as you know, the school district represents many independent cities, and we have reached out to them also. there are unincorporated areas in this school district that we have reached out to. i have reached out to the board of supervisors, i've reached out to the city council, i've notified the state superintendent of schools, i've notified the secretary of education. mainly because there are no secrets. somebody has sent information that leads us to pause and make sure that we are safe, that our children and our staff are safe. nobody could be more interested in this city than our mayor.
10:08 am
our mayor and his staff, his staff has joined us early this morning, and our mayor is here now. i would like to turn it over to him. >> thank you very much, mr. superintendent. good morning, everybody. the decision to close the schools is not mine to make, but it is mine to support, as mayor of the city of los angeles. since san bernardino, we have seen whether it was our colleagues there who asked for the help of the los angeles police department as that shooting unfolded, or this morning when l.a. usd reached out to the los angeles police department and the city of l.a. for assistance, we are here because our first job is to ensure the people are safe in this city. it is very easy for people to jump to conclusions and i've been around long enough to know that usually what people think in the first few hours is not necessarily how it plays out in later hours. we see investigations un fold sometimes for a series of days, but decisions need to be made in a matter of minutes. i have been immediately on the
10:09 am
phone when we learned of this with phil washington, the ceo of mta, to ensure that students could travel free on our busses and our rail lines today, to ensure they can get home safely, to make sure that they are able to get through this city without having to worry, because we know at love parents still have to continue -- a lot of parents still have to get to work and cannot even afford to miss one day. we are here, chief beck and i, with lapd's extensive leadership and training that connected some of the dots nationally on this. it was -- we, of course, reached out and the school district reached out immediately to our federal law enforcement officials who have been extra taxed in recent weeks since san bernardino, but to bring them into this investigation, but also it was in talking to our counterparts in new york and learning of other places, where now we realize this was not the only city to face that threat. we will continue to hope that this is nothing and that our children can be back at school tomorrow. but as a parent, and as a
10:10 am
playeplayemayor, i'm here to support this school district as it seeks our help so we can look at each one of these campuses and make sure they are safe for all of our children. in an abundance of caution, it's something all of us who have children appreciate. we will be here, it continue to be here, we have also activated the city's emergency level at level one, lowest level but constant staffing, to make sure we can follow this, continue to share in the intelligence, work with our federal law enforcement officials and do whatever the school district asks of us. my number one priority is keeping this city safe and i will continue to do that no matter who reaches out to us, we have incredibly well-trained police force and one last thing i would say to the people of l.a., whether this pans out as something that could have happened or not and we might not ever be able to conclude that definitively, i do not want people to say because sometimes things don't result in a shooting or don't result in a foiled plot, to not speak up and to not speak out.
10:11 am
we need to continue to have people, if you see something, say something. visit and learn how you can be more vigilant as we continue to live our lives here in the city of los angeles and the values we hold of freedom of our liberty, we want to make sure also that we are safe. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> to our viewers who have just joined us on the nbc television networks, to our viewers who have been following our live coverage on msnbc, on cable, and sirius xm radio. here is the situation we just watched up fold. the police chief is speaking
10:12 am
now. the first man to speak in the yellow hat with the logo of cape cod, is the man right now at the center of this story this morning in los angeles. he is the superintendent of l.a. unified school district ramon cortines and it appears on early information, it was his call to shut down the schools in the l.a. unified district. let's listen to the police chief in los angeles, charlie beck. >> our best advice on moving forward. we were able to do that. the sprpuperintendent made a decision and we support his decision, as does the mayor. i would say this to people that are critical. it is very easy in hindsight to criticize the decision based on results that the decider could never have known. its is also very easy to criticize a decision when you no responsibility for the outcome
10:13 am
of that decision. the school district safeguards three quarters of a million lives every day. when they make a decision, they have to take into account the safety of the children of los angeles. i think it's irresponsible to, based on facts that have yet to be determined, to criticize that decision at this point. all of us make tough choices. all of us have the same goal in mind. we want to keep our kids safe. these are tough times. these communities, our communities, southern california, has been through a lot in the recent weeks. should we risk putting our children through the same? i'm also joined by my partner in law enforcement here, the other half of what keeps the region safe, sheriff jim mcdonald, if
10:14 am
it's okay i would like him to say a few words. >> speak. welcome, sir. >> thank you very much. just here to be able to, i guess, add a note of reassurance that we are working very closely together, once we became aware of this issue, we immediately became in contact. we have co-located our representatives in the emergency operations center and we then strategically from there started vetting the information that's available to us working with all of our partners at the federal, state and local level. we are blessed that in this region we have great relationships and when we have the need we come together in a way that i think you would all be very proud of, although we don't and can't really talk about it. a lot of work is being done to be able to run this to ground and we're working together to ensure that the 700,000 young people who go to l.a. unified are safe and that we continue to move forward with that common goal in mind. so i thank you for your understanding and for working with us as we deal with this very difficult issue.
10:15 am
thank you. >> thank you. i want you to meet the chief of school police, mr. zipperman, and then i will turn it over to the board president to introduce the board. >> good afternoon. i just want to say, again, to all of my law enforcement colleagues, sheriff mcdonald, chief beck, honorable mayor, as indicated before, sometimes we have to make tough decisions as has already been stated. i assure you that our number one priority is the safety and security of not only our students, but our staff as well. we go based on the information we have. >> if you hear in any of the words of these officials a hint of anger or a flash of defensiveness, here's why. as we said, 900 schools shut this morning in los angeles. that affects close to three
10:16 am
quarters of a million students, a number far greater than that when you add in all the employees, the bus drivers, the members of the community affected by this. in the hours after the superintendent there made the decision to shut down l.a. unified, second largest school district in the country, the top two officials here in the city of new york, the mayor and the police commissioner, bill bratton, former l.a. commissioner by the way, bill bratton, came out and said they suggested that l.a. overreacted. they said, in effect, they believe they saw the same threat and dismissed the threat as not credible. so we're going to hear phrases all day as we have been, phrases like an abundance of caution, phrases like "the cost of good intention." the fact is, this decision was made in the backyard of and in light of san bernardino, california, from the area they call the southland in through
10:17 am
the area they call the inland empire of southern california. they, of course, have been in shock after that horrible terrorist attack and the loss of life there. let's bring in our justice correspondent, pete williams in washington, and pete, what we look is hard proof that these officials in both cities, this transcontinental threat, was broadcast via e-mail to both cities and they were looking at the same thing. >> well, we're told now, brian, is that the messages came from the same internet address, so they believe they were the same source, and that the messages were substantially similar, similar words in both cases, the same kind of generalized threats, then custom made for each school district at which they're sent. whether they were sent to other school districts, other than new york and los angeles, that we don't know, but we know at least that those two officials received them with very different results. it's also not entirely clear at
10:18 am
this point how much of that was known to the l.a. officials when they had to make this decision in the early hours of the morning about whether there had been a similar message elsewhere and one of the things they may have had to consider is whether that was part of the effort to disguise the true source here, brian. >> pete williams in our washington bureau, our long-time justice correspondent. to those joining us on the nbc television network, there will be much more on this story, of course, news as it happens, we'll come on the air. on your early local news and, of course, tonight a complete wrap-up on "nbc nightly news." our coverage continues live on msnbc for now, i'm brian williams nny, and she would sit at the director's m monitor and then write new joke, and so then the jason moore the director would give us new joke s. because you have maya rudolphf there who knows what she is doing. >> yes. >> and so would you like to play
10:19 am
a game? >> yes. >> it is how well you know your comedy movies. okay. ready. kath, you do the first one. >> okay. name the movie, this very famous line is from. put the candle back. >> from young frankenstein. >> okay. put the candle back! and from what movie is this quote, a relationship is like a shark, it has to constantly move forward or it dice and i think that we have our hands on a dead shark. >> "annie hall." >> you were going along with the exact words. >> how many times have you seen the movies? >> h a lot. >> in what infliction did the cowboy at the camp site suffer from, headaches, psoriasis or gas? >> it has to be gas. >> in what movie did he edadmit that na na takes the wig off when she has had too much to drink. >> "mean girls." i wrote that movie. >> that is something that i won't ever say.
10:20 am
and what can is used for off label purposes. >> a can of cooking spray. >> bridesmaids, baby mountain or blazing trails -- >> "baby mama." >> yes. >> a clean sweep for tina fey. >> and we wish you a big opening even though you are opposite of "star wars." >> a lay-up. >> and so people will find you. >> and hopefully the "star wars" is sold out and you can come see "sisters" with your popcorn and ticket. >> and now, coming up, we wil i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me. with once-weekly trulicity.
10:21 am
trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise. trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes and should not be used by people with severe stomach or intestinal problems, or people with type i diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe stomach pain that will not go away

10:27 am
about a couple involved in a violent fight. when officers arrived, they found the man and woman in the parking lot. investigators so far only say one officer felt his life or maybe the woman's life was in danger and that that officer fired. researchers say sea lions are now being affected by the same toxin that's delaying crab season. crews have rescued hundreds of sea lions along the california coast who have possibly suffered brain damage. this naturally occurring toxin is found in algae and eaten by shell physical fish and small fish and makes the sea lions disoriented. we'll look at traffic and weather after the break.
