7:32 am
social media. mostly twit they are morning, we love it. bus stop buddly get rid of the umbrella soon, or the umbrella if you prefer, because the sun is emerging from behind the clouds. temperatures in the 40's, 50's, seeing just few raindrops, left over, the warmfront that came through is going to allow really warm temperatures to move in. so you see, pretty sunrise we're getting. 56 degrees. with southwesterlies at 18 miles per hour, winds gust to go 25 miles per hour. winds are so high, that's probably why we haven't seen any fog. so the showers are exiting. and we will get to close to 60 degrees by lunchtime, topping off at at least 63, maybe even more, depending on how much sun we get. days are still kind of short. not as long as they are in the spring. sunset is at 4:58. but, that should gave you give a chance to get well into the 60s. >> days are getting shorter. should i wear my shorts for this event? >> yes. >> today? >> yes. >> okay. >> we want to see those legs.

7:34 am
transgender women. three victims held up at gunpoint sunday night. and on monday, man was shot to death coming to the rescue after trans jenner person who was being robbed. police say both incident occurred after dates were arranged on an on line site called black page. >> or back page. >> back page. meanwhile, city officials are working to fight discrimination against the lgbt community. they held a meeting last night to show residents how to file discrimination claims. the direct or of the office of lgbt affairs is here, one of our good friends, hi, nelly. >> how are you guys? >> before we get to this, give me some statistics that you brought to light. what's the life expect expectanf transgender woman in this country? >> right now 35 years old. >> stunning. >> it is stunning. you know, we see the transgender people are facing not only social, marginal is agents, but astounding rates of discrimination,
7:35 am
harrassment, victimization. as a result, we see things like the unbelievable rates of homicide over the past couple of years, 2016, 24 murders. 2015, 22 murders. both those years, three of the murders happened here in philadelphia. overwhelmingly transgender women of color, overwhelmingly folks who are under 30 years old. young people who need to be protected, need to be empowered, need to be given opportunity. >> and they're killed why? because they're trans jenner women? >> i would say yes. because we see that these crimes happen in two different ways. one way is that somebody's targeted because they're perceived as transgender. the violence is perpetuated against them directly because they are transgender. the other way is that people are in places where they are likely to be victimized. they're vulnerable. because society has pushed them away, they're turning to survivor crimes like sex work, they are walking the streets late at night. they are trying to survive. and therefore, they are ultra vulnerable to victimization,
7:36 am
to being robbed, to being raped, to being beaten, to being murdered. >> you were mentioning the numbers, the rate of people being killed, more than 20 for the past two years. and here we are, 12 days into 2017, and we're already starting to see some of this happening. >> we r there have been two murders so far this year. one in south dakota, jamie lee wounded arrow and another one in mississippi, meisha kad well, jamie lee was only 29. meisha made it to 41. jamie lee was found dead in her apartment. meisha was found just outside of canton mississippi nay parking lot. >> so they're not making as much money as everybody else in society. >> no. >> that's why they are turning to sex work, some of them? >> they don't have these opportunities, absolutely. so we see that 54% of trans identified people have an annual house hole income of under $10,000 a year. annual house hole income of under $10,000 a year. so, the real problem happens when we see that we don't have anti-discrimination protection
7:37 am
don't have the protection, don't have it explicitly federally for any lgbt people. >> this means there is no protection in your housing, in your places of employment, or in public accommodation. any business that is are open to the public. people can openly discriminate. when the government doesn't protect you from discrimination, that basically sanctions the average citizen to discriminate, harrass. >> so this would be something the attorney general of the united state would have to address? >> it is something, yes, that absolutely, the attorney general of the united states would have to address, and i believe that attorney generals throughout our nation are equipped to address. i think that they are perfectly poised to step up and protect people's civil rights. but, obviously, there is great concern. right now in this transition. >> very conservative man to be the attorney general of the united states. >> one way every putting. >> yes. >> i can think of a few other things, yes. his track record certainly
7:38 am
doesn't address a lot of people's fears at this time. >> and also touching on one the other, real quickly, we mention here about the philadelphia commission on human relations. dealing with the reports of racial discrimination, the gabe or hood, other areas of philly. what is the update? there was meet that was held to help people know how they can file complaints? >> so that people know. the philadelphia fair practice ordinance is philadelphia's anti-discrimination law. it is the law that locally says you cannot discriminate against somebody in housing employment and public accommodations, based on mere add of factors including race. racial discrimination in the city of philadelphia sill legal period, it is not tolerated. it doesn't matter if it is lgbt bar. doesn't matter if it is here in this studio. it is illegal. so what we need to do is have the sole agency, the government local agency, that's in charge, with enforcing this law, is getting to work. and one of the things that they're doing, aside from having local hearings and reports, is they had a training last night to help teach people how do you file a
7:39 am
complaint. and really quickly, we look at the video, i mean, there are a lot of chairs in there? >> a lot of empty chairs. >> why big movement, and people very vocal about the fact of discrimination and what's happening, why now having meetings to figure out how to stop this that there are empty chairs? was it not very publicize in the. >> i think the human relations committee from what i've been told will do better job at pun sizing their event. and they're going to be holding more events. i look forward to holding them to that. hoping to get more community in there. i think that, you know, when it comes down to sitting and learning about how tonight err act with government, not everybody wants to do. that will they want to see immediate action. they opportunity see these bars change now. it is authorities wait. but this is a part of it. and we will be there all along. >> let us help spread the words too. >> thanks, i would appreciate that. >> common the show. >> thank you, nelly. we have to get to this. skyfox is over some breaking news out of overbrook. this is a fire on the 6100

8:17 am
sergeant. were you able to make that decision on your own? this is east call co, typically three officers on patrol at a time. were you ready to go 60 miles in a snowstorm? >> i wasn't thinking it was going to happen but i kind of texted the chief and said, hey, this is kind of what's going on here. i'm on my way. so he called me, and so i beg for forgiveness. and didn't get permission right away. >> now have you been in touch with the surgeon since? what i was readings that that surgery went very well. these were life saving efforts on your part. >> yes. through news reports, the surgeon, doctor mali, said that surgery went well. everything went fine. >> man, how does that make you feel? i mean, do you this every single day, day in, day out, here to protect the community. that was taking your job to the next level, thinking on the spot like, that doing you what thought you needed to do? >> absolutely. you know, i thought about the family, the donor, what they went through, what the family was going through. and then i was thinking about the recipient, who is going to
8:18 am
get another shot, another chance at life. so i figure it was time to go. we, again, doctor mali was great. the resident was great. and it was a little bit hair-raising going down to philly in the snow. but traffic was normal, i mean, the schuylkill was pretty full, but we got down there all right. >> how long did it take? >> took little less than an hour. >> that's pretty good time given a snowstorm. so the one thing that the sergeant did not get to do, he was hoping for a lunch break, were you hoping for geno's, can we bring out the geno's. >> we brought you the geno's, i hope this is okay, and i think good enough present. is this your wife? >> it is. >> good. this is the whole family. come here. yes, we just wanted to real roo really absolute you for job well done. and there are couple of t-shirts in there. >> that's great. >> could i ask awe little bit about your husband's efforts? >> how does that make you feel when you heard what he did? >> very proud. that he was able to help someone out, get the liver to
8:19 am
philadelphia, and the recipient to have a successful surgery. >> and chief of police. you didn't think twice about saying it is okay for him to drive 60 miles? >> it was an interesting story. because he sent me a text message, than was 15 minute laps between the time i saw it and he sent it. so i called him immediately when i saw it of course. and he said i'm already on my way. i said well i'm not telling you to turn around. so it all worked out. obviously made the perfect decision. >> it all worked out. i hope you know while we were inside were you getting calls, more cheese steaks on the way. be weight let you go, we want to see you take a bite of this. we have to see these efforts here, ya. you get your geno's cheese steaks, maybe the boys can have a bite too. >> i hope this is worth it. i hope it is not cold after our drive from philadelphia. >> can't beat geno's cheese steak! >> oh, there we go. >> thank you! >> worth it? >> absolutely. >> thank you, mike and alex, back to you guys. >> great story.
