adjust this way down. >> you did. thanks for watching. remember, don't forg and broncos sunday at 1:00. good morning to our viewers in the west. it's friday august 15th 2014. welcome to "cbs this morning." minutes ago we learned which police officer is at the center of the storm in missouri. we are in ferguson. new revelations about robin williams' health struggles during his final days. plus the little league girl with the big league arm shaking up the world series. >> but we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> no justice, no peace. >> protesters turning out in dozens of cities. >> missouri's outrage ripples across the country. >> the scene in ferguson is much more peaceful now that major policing changes have taken effect. >> i think it's going good. >> the officer that was involved

7:02 am
>> the tourist is lucky to be alive. scrambling back to shore, stopped by a crocodile in mexico. >> -- and all that matters -- >> olympic swimmer, amy van dyken is out of the hospital after two months of physical therapy. >> we've got another chance, let's do it right. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> the oxford dictionary has added yolo and amazeballs. it will no longer include the word "standards." this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." we're going to start with breaking news because as you wake up in the west ferguson missouri, police just revealed the name of the officer who shot and killed an 18-year-old man.
7:03 am
police chief thomas jackson spoke to reporters a short time ago. >> the officer that was involved in the shooting of michael brown was darren wilson. he's been a police officer for six years, has had no disciplinary action taken against him. he was treated for injuries which occurred on saturday. >> the release of the name happened eded nearly a week after the shooting that sparked four days of rioting in that st. louis suburb. >> this case has also sparked a series of organized protests around the country on thursday. hundreds of demonstrators gathered in new york's times square. others held a vigil and a moment of silence outside chicago city hall, and protesters in houston remembered their own run-ins with police. now, by contrast the demonstration in ferguson last night almost looked like a street party. vladimir duthiers is in ferguson where people say a change in police command is soothing the tension there. >> reporter: police chief tom jackson just released the name of the police officer who
7:04 am
fatally shot teenaged michael brown. he is darren wilson a six-year veteran of the force. you can see behind me the reaction here is still -- people are very very angry. there's a woman screaming saying that the police are killing their black sons and daughters in america. people here not happy. they want more information. the chief was supposed to take some questions. he said there will be a press conference later on. now, the mood last night was very different here in ferguson. you can see behind me people are starting to chanting no peace, no justice. this is a very different reaction from what we saw in ferguson yesterday. the mood was almost joyful as the new police captain that's been put in charge of ferguson took to the streets shaking hands with people. hundreds of protesters took to the streets of ferguson last night, but now accompanied by law enforcement, including missouri highway patrol captain ron johnson. >> people have a chance to say what they want to say and it's
7:05 am
peaceful so i think it's been going good. >> why spend that time shooting each other tear gassing each other, going to war with each other, for what? what does that solve? what does that prove? >> it's beautiful tonight, it's great. it's very peaceful. i love it. >> reporter: throughout the week protests at night and during the day in ferguson had been confronted by formidable police presence criticized for its aggressive level of force and use of military equipment. yesterday missouri governor jay nixon put the state highway patrol in command of ferguson. >> i grew up here and this is currently my community and my home. therefore, it means a lot to me personally that we break this cycle of violence diffuse the tension and build trust. >> reporter: johnson immediately instilled a less combative approach to police tactics. >> we're a community. we're all part of that community and in it together. >> reporter: the week's events culminated from saturday's shooting of 18-year-old michael brown. witnesses say the unarmed teen had his hands up when he was
7:06 am
shot multiple times by a police officer. an investigation into his death could take two more weeks. police chief tom jackson says he'll be back later this afternoon for an update for those that are still waiting for more information. >> thank you. now, president obama spoke on thursday about the ferguson - shooting and the ongoing protests. he called for police and citizens there to respect each other. >> we lost a young man, michael brown, in heart-breaking and tragic circumstances. he was 18 years old. there is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. there's also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests. >> the president asked everyone to remember, quote, we're all part of one american family. earlier this morning we asked missouri governor jay nixon why he decided to send the state highway patrol to ferguson.
7:07 am
>> a couple of things. first of all, we needed to make an operational shift so we could change both the tone the attitude and the activities in that area which we did last night with bringing the highway patrol in, shifting that organization. had zero arrests last night. i thought our folks did a really good job of reaching out. but our focus last night was to -- all week focused yesterday was to make sure that we allowed people to speak but we kept safety. >> i know you've made a change in putting captain ronald johnson in charge and that seems to have helped things last night. but for nearly a week it's looked like a war zone armored vehicles, tear gas. how is that defensible? >> as we saw that acceleration both of the confrontations as well as the amplitude of the force, it became obvious that we needed a force change that's why i plotbrought in the highway patrol, put captain johnson in
7:08 am
front and also why folks backed up last night, got into the community as opposed to mraps and i think that's one reason we had zero arrests. >> you've been criticized by some for a slow response. do you think that criticism is fair? >> we're focused on how we move forward here. as we saw that acceleration, the dramatic action of changing the command structure was important. having the state highway patrol take the lead was important. i made that decision yesterday and we're beginning to see the benefits of it already. >> there is some criticism that police departments in the united states have become excessively militaryized. what are your thoughts on that? >> i think it's a really legitimate discussion. i was attorney general back in the '90s when we talked about community policing to get officers in schools and relationship policing. when you distance that with massive amounts of armor and whatnot, it makes it difficult for people to connect and i think it intimidates them. and at this time with this horrible death and the need for people to speak out and to have
7:09 am
their emotions heard in a public fashion, it restricted that and this is a good example of what can happen if there's too much armor and not enough working together. >> governor, with the state patrol now in charge in ferguson, how do you eventually reintroduce the local police force there? >> that's -- as we work through today and moving forward, our goal is to get this area secure and make sure folks can get safely around and they can speak out. if folks want to come and visit, they're going to be safe. as we move forward, obviously investigations need to accelerate so we can get answers and justice at the end of it. i think it's going to be a complicated time. as i said before this has raised deeper questions than just the operational pieces here or just this particular case. this scratched a wound in our communities across the state and across this country that's much deeper and we all need to recognize that. >> governor, the city of ferguson is nearly two-thirds black and yet the police force is almost entirely white. does that need to change? >> i've always believed we try
7:10 am
to do the best we can to make sure that the government agencies we're involved with reflect the people. they're changing demographics there. the bottom line is i think all of that sort of stuff is on the table to look at. how do you do a better job as you move forward. most importantly we need to keep people safe and get justice while allowing people to speak out at the same time. >> governor nixon, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >> and in our next half hour we're going to take a closer look at the rising use of military equipment and tactics by police. critics say it's turning officers into soldiers and occupiers. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." fans of robin williams are reacting to a stunning new revelation this morning. his widow says the oscar-winning actor and comedian had parkinson's disease when he took his own life. susan schneider revealed her husband's health issues saying robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of parkinson's disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.
7:11 am
our dr. david agus is in los angeles this morning. dr. agus good morning. i'm wondering what would robin williams have been experiencing with the early stages of parkinson's? >> good morning. you know there's a direct link between depression and parkinson's. people with parkinson's disease have a significant increase in depression. you know parkinson's is a loss of cells in the brain that make dopamine, which is involved in depression. but there's also data from several years ago showing that people with depression have a higher rate of parkinson's disease so it's kinds of a chicken in the egg argument. maybe that depression was an early sign of parkinson in those patients or maybe one led to the other. >> you know, we've obviously seen high profile actor michael j. fox struggle with parkinson's and he's gone on to have a very fruitful career. that's obviously maybe not the normal course of events. is it possible that this really added to robin williams' depression? >> no question. i mean clearly parkinson's has depression associated with it. a half a million people in the
7:12 am
united states right now have parkinson's disease. and the disease course is varied. in many people it's a very slow progression. we have drugs that can take away many of the symptoms. they can't yet either cure the disease or reverse it but they can slow its progression symptomatically. >> dr. agus, i'm sure you saw michael j. fox tweeted out he said he was stunned to learn that his friend robin williams had parkinson's disease, even though robin williams had supported the michael j. fox foundation for a long time. is it possible that robin williams could have hid these early tremors that sometimes are associated with parkinson's? he was so prolific he was working nonstop. >> yeah early on the disease has minimal symptoms. even though you may be diagnosed, michael j. fox was diagnosed at age 30 and he didn't announce it publicly until six or seven years later so there is a lag time whether it be your family your friends or the public are aware of the symptoms you're experiencing. >> now, i'm wondering, dr. agus is there any link between
7:13 am
parkinson's and substance abuse? because robin williams has been very forthcoming about his own issues with substance abuse. >> there is not a known link between parkinson's and things like alcohol and cocaine. and so whether they were connected or not, we honestly won't know and can't know but there's no known direct link between them. >> all right, dr. david agus good to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you. and this morning iraq's government is preparing for a change at the top. prime minister nouri al maliki says he will resign after eight years in power. that move is expected to break a long-standing deadlock that allowed the terror group known as isis to control much of northern iraq. charlie d'agata is in iraq where refugees say the crisis is not over. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. nouri al maliki's decision to step aside comes after pressure from the united states and others who have pledged more military support provided he gives up power. and u.s. air strikes and air drops have already been credited with saving countless lives.
7:14 am
many of the 15,000 refugees at this camp escaped starvation on mt. sinjar. that's three times the number the u.n. camp was designed to hold, but already down from a peak of 22,000 during the worst of the isis onslaught. >> the mountain is not good. >> reporter: we met ali who managed to escape with his young family. they risked being discovered by isis militants as they made their way down the mountain and into this refugee camp. he said kurdish peshmerga militias aren't capable of taking on isis alone. >> do you think america can help? >> yes. we want everybody, they can help this people we want to get out. >> reporter: the fact so many were able to get off the mountain led to the u.s.' decision to suspend air drops, but the areas now under the grip of isis stretch far beyond. the u.n. says 95,000 refugees
7:15 am
have passed through these areas since august 6th seeking food water, shelter and, most importantly, safety. for now, there's enough food and water to go around but it can't last forever. aid workers say this part of iraq is still facing a humanitarian crisis as isis expands its rapid offensive and pushes people to seek refuge in kurdish-controlled areas. the hope now is that the new leadership can help unite the country, so that kurdish fighters join forces with the iraqi military to defeat isis most likely with the support of u.s. air power. for "cbs this morning," i'm charlie d'agata in dohuk, northern iraq. and an emotional reunion for two amish sisters and their family after an apparent kidnapping. the pair was missing about 24 hours in northern new york state. they turned up after a prayer service for their safe return. the search for 7-year-old delie la and 12-year-old fanny miller
7:16 am
began wednesday night. police think they were taken from the family's roadside vegetable stand. two men dropped the girls off cold and wet last night at a house just 13 miles from their own. >> we prayed for the family. shortly after we came up here and got good news so i mean it really is wonderful night for the miller family and the community. >> police aren't saying what happened to the girls or if they're looking for anyone in the apparent abduction. we have new developments this morning in the killing of an illinois woman in bali. the body of sheila van we say macwas found stuffed in luggage. the couple is not cooperating with investigators and they are being tested for drugs. take a look at this an enthusiastic crowd welcomed pope francis when he celebrated mass this morning in south korea. he's reaching out to the country's young people. seth doane is in seoul where
7:17 am
francis is also afflicting the comfortable, as he says. >> reporter: good morning here in one of asia's largest economies, the pope has been speaking out against consumerism and really leading by example. we saw him picked up at the airport in a very simple boxy kia soul. and today there were weather problems when he was flying -- he was supposed to fly to mass in a helicopter. instead he got on the train, much to the surprise of other passengers on board. when pope francis arrived, the 50,000-seat stadium was packed with the crowd chanting "long live the pope." during mass he told the faithful that outwardly affluent societies are full of inner emptiness. in his closing prayer he acknowledged a still raw wound for koreans, the ferry disaster which killed nearly 300 people most of them high school students on a field trip. >> may this tragic event which
7:18 am
has brought all koreans together confirm their commitment to work together in solidarity for the common good. >> reporter: pope francis met privately with about a dozen survivors and relatives of those who died onboard. other families of the dead are staging a hunger strike to push the korean government to pass a special law that would authorize an independent investigation into the sinking of the ferry. some have been on strike for a day or two. but kim yaungong oh has been here more than a month now. he showed me how thin he had become subsisting on water and salt. his 16-year-old daughter was one of those killed. he's reading a book of the pope's quotes and says he likes the concept of embracing those who have the least power.
7:19 am
so he said i'm asking the pope to embrace the bereaved families and not forget about us until the fight ends. the pope has been speaking a lot about peace and reconciliation with north korea and really targeting his message to young people. part of the church here ben, that is really growing. >> a smart move by a very smart pope. seth, thanks so much. >> as much as the pope says it's the images that come out of these meetings and of course him riding in a kia soul -- >> we've been looking at this. >> the popemobile costs like half a million dollars. this is a $16,000 car and they were -- it's advertised in korea with the artist psi. >> people find this funny that he's doing this but he's a jesuit. so to him this is all very normal and we think it's extraordinary. >> we may see him in philadelphia next year. it's 7:19. ahead on "cbs this morning" the

to candlestick park in san francisco. there was a lot good morning, everyone. it's 7:26. i'm michelle griego. it was not a very smooth farewell to candlestick park in san francisco. there was a lot of praise for the paul mccartney concert but unfortunately, a lot of people with tickets to the event never made it in. the parking situation was such a mess, many people were stuck in the parking lot for hours. just a short time ago the police chief in ferguson, missouri announced the name of the officer who fatally shot a young unarmed man last weekend. this is video from the news conference. the officer, darren wilson, is on administrative leave. his name was not revealed until this morning because of death threats. stay with us. traffic and weather in just a moment.

good morning, at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's been
7:28 am
the best commute of the week so far. it's definitely "friday light." metering lights are on but the backup is to the middle of the parking lot and the fastrak lanes are the best. here's a live look at the san mateo bridge. westbound 92 a little sluggish approaching the toll plaza past industrial. once you hop on to the span, though, trying to get to the peninsula, things look okay. and your westbound 580 drive time through the livermore valley much improved from a while ago after that earlier crash at isabel. down to about 24 minutes now between the altamont pass and 680. that is "kcbs traffic." here's lawrence. >> starting out with lots of low clouds and fog around a good part of the bay area. just some patchy stuff into the valleys. in dublin you see some of that patchy fog and mixture of sunshine. more sun on the way. some warmer temperatures today as high pressure going to strengthen especially into the valleys maybe 80s and low 90s there. 81 san jose. 74 oakland. about 69 in san francisco. the weekend looking good maybe slightly warmer on saturday. hey pal? you ready?

a black person. this week's unrest in ferguson missouri, is putting a spotlight on police in military gear. attorney general eric holder says, quote, i am deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles sends a conflicting message. jan crawford is in washington where congress may change the pentagon's war surplus program. jan, this is a big story. good morning. >> reporter: well, yeah it is. good morning. i mean a georgia congressman has just introduced federal legislation that would limit the military equipment that goes to local police saying tanks and m-16s just don't belong on the streets of america. but law enforcement officials tell us that that surplus equipment also can help them especially as criminals are using deadlier weapons. for several nights this week this was ferguson missouri. tanks, combat gear, assault rifles. it looked like a military operation. >> you must disperse immediately. >> reporter: and that's because
7:34 am
police departments in the st. louis area like those across the country, are arming their officers with equipment once on the battlefields of iraq and afghanistan. much of it is free of charge or bought with federal grant money authorized by congress. in the past year the department of defense has given local law enforcement over 600 mraps, the armored vehicles designed to withstand roadside bombs. texas alone received 68. florida, 45. the worn county sheriff's department in upstate new york also got one. bud york is sheriff. >> i'm hoping i never have to use this vehicle, but if i do have to use it i'm not going to have to worry about my people or possibl the public being injured because it certainly can save them. >> reporter: the pentagon program has given departments over $5 billion of surplus equipment since the program launched in 1991. helicopters, firearms protective gear night vision even computers and camouflage
7:35 am
clothing. the local police also get federal grant money to buy the military-style equipment. one recent study found the federal government has doled out more than $34 billion to local police departments since the september 11th terrorist attacks. but critics say local police aren't the military that some of the equipment and tactics should not be routinely used against american citizens. >> there's a feeling that you have to justify having it so you have to find reasons to use it even if those reasons, you know aren't really commiserate with the threat. >> reporter: bo dietl says -- >> you've got to buy it use it and no one to use it. >> reporter: law enforcement in st. louis county have gotten more than half a million dollars of military equipment from the pentagon, including seven humvees and a dozen m-16s. critics are saying their tactics
7:36 am
were heavy-handed and yesterday we saw the governor put the state highway patrol in charge and last night those protests were peaceful. jane. >> thanks, jan. there are a lot of ways to look at this but i'm thinking when you train a police officer to use military-style weapons from the battlefield, how are you changing that officer's psychological sense of what his duty is. it's sort of soldierizing if i may coin a phrase. maybe that's not such a good idea. >> do they see the people they're interacting with as an enemy. >> and very different when the new captain who took over in ferguson walked to the streets without a gas mask on how that immediately calmed tensions there without all of the combat gear on. the ohio state university's former band leader is making some noise. jon waters tells "cbs this morning" he wants his job back. as we reported he was fired last month. a university investigation revealed an alleged sexualized
7:37 am
culture within the band but vinita nair shows us where the school isn't showing any sign of changing its tune. good morning. >> good morning to you guys. johnathan waters says he deserves to get his job back. he maintains while certain inappropriate behavior existed in the band's history, he was working to end it. jon waters insists the 23-page report that led ohio state to fire him as director of the osu marching band is deeply flawed. >> the things that were written about in the report seemed incomplete to me. they seemed in fact to be things that were vestiges of the past and they seemed to me to be really inaccurate. >> that report outlines accusations of a sexualized culture within the band including sexually explicit nicknames and rituals. the report claims waters knew of the behavior and failed to stop it. but waters argues that's just not the case. >> we are given this culture and
7:38 am
we feel a need to reform it and we take the steps to reform it and yet, unfortunately, this report doesn't talk about any of the reformation that we did on the culture. >> reporter: in the weeks since his removal, current and former band members have stepped forward disputing the allegations, and more than 12,000 people have signed a petition for his reinstatement. but earlier this week president michael drake stood by his decision. >> i was personally profoundly disappointed to see that there were, the report found, cultural problems in the band that needed to be addressed, needed to be addressed in a forthright fashion because we needed to move forward. >> reporter: this as waters' lawyer released a formal request for his reinstatement, writing his firing was a rush to judgment based on a report that is now obvious was replete with error. waters hopes president drake and the board of trustees will at least consider his return to the band. >> they owe it to the community to not let some report that came
7:39 am
