Was Missing Girl Hiding a Secret?; Student Beating Caught on Tape

Aired April 23, 2014 - 19:00:00   ET


JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL, HOST: Tonight stunning new developments in the mysterious disappearance of this beautiful, smart high school honor student. Sixteen-year-old Anne Josette Hill was last seen 13 long days ago after telling her mom she was going to watch a movie at a friend`s house. Tonight, brand-new video surfaces of Anne from before she went missing.

Was this straight-A popular teen keeping some kind of secret? And is it the key to finding out what has happened to her?

Tonight, Anne`s distraught mom joins us live. She`s desperate to find her missing daughter and is now working with a private investigator who joins me exclusively in a minute to discuss her theories of the case. Let`s do what we can together to find this beautiful missing teen.

Good evening. I`m Jane Velez-Mitchell, coming to you live.


LORI HILL, ANNE JOSETTE HILL`S MOTHER: That`s not a kid that`s planning on running away.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Anne had just gotten the keys to her first car. That car was found abandoned.

HILL: We know she`s out there somewhere, and she wants to come home. We know she`s out there somewhere, and she wants to come home. Driving streets, walking parks, knocking on doors.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Lori Hill`s daughter Anne went to a friend`s house to watch a movie.

HILL: Never met a stranger. That`s my Annie Jo.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: And who goes by the name Annie Jo vanished two weeks ago tomorrow. Her mom last saw her on Thursday, April 10. On Friday, April 11, Anne supposedly texted her mom, saying she was going to see a movie with friends. Her mom says she seemed upset about an early curfew and mysteriously stopped answering her phone around 11 p.m. that night and she never came home.

Then, a week ago, Anne`s car was found abandoned 20 miles away from her home near the University of Central Oklahoma.

Anne`s family says she`s a good, studious young lady who`s never gotten into trouble. Now, watch this video Anne posted on Instagram a few weeks ago with the caption, quote, "We so good at B.S.`ing" as she is pulled over by a police officer. We are showing you this because we want to solve this case and leave no sturn untoned [SIC] -- no stone unturned.

All right, we`re going to analyze that. Cops initially assumed Anne was simply a run-away. But now cops admit they may have been wrong, and they`re worried. Did police wait too long to start treating this as foul play?

Anne`s mother insists her little girl would never, ever leave. She was about to get her braces out; she has a dog that she dearly loves. Where is Anne Josette Hill? Did she get caught one the wrong crowd? Call me: 1-877-JVM-SAYS, 1-877-586-7297.

We have a fantastic Lion`s Den debate panel tonight, including the private investigator working on Anne`s mysterious disappearance. But first, straight out to our special guest, the missing girl`s mother, Lori Hill.

Lori, first of all I want to say that my heart goes out to you, I know this is hellish. It`s surreal. It`s a nightmare that you`re living. We want to help. So will you tell us where you are right now and why that is significant to this case?

HILL (via phone): Right now I`m sitting in a park. It`s a beautiful day here in Oklahoma. And I`m not far from where her car was found, and the last ping from her cell phone. I`m sitting here with her dog, waiting for family. We`re going to post up more posters, looking around the park. I can see three flyers that we hung up, hoping that someone who saw her will see the poster and call in with information.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: You say that you`re in this particular area, so let me go through this area, because cops have uncovered some clues since she went missing.

Anne`s beloved car, which she apparently called her baby and had gotten very recently, was found five days after she vanished abandoned 20 miles away from her home, near the University of Central Oklahoma. Cops say her cell phone was pinged near where her car was found, again, close to that same university. We`re showing you some Google map imagery here.

We also know a male source told investigators he last saw Anne on Friday night. They supposedly watched a movie at his brother`s house, near that university.

So I want to go back out to Lori Hill, missing girl`s mom. Oh -- all those clues have one thing in common. It`s near the university. Did she have any friends at the university? Did she have any connections with that university? And I hate to say this, but we know that predators have been known to cruise universities, because they`re filled with female students, looking for coeds.

HILL: This is not somewhere I knew she had any friends or acquaintances. I don`t know why she would be in this area. It`s -- that is a mystery to me. I just -- if she was here, this is where I`m going to look. I need to find my daughter.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Now, you say that -- well, her car was found abandoned. Have you seen the vehicle? You say you`re near that area, and it is apparently also near where her cell phone last pinged. Did this car look like it was parked -- in other words, did it look like maybe it was just abandoned in a way where it wasn`t parked? Or did it look like she may have parked it, gone somewhere, and something untoward happened before she could get back to the car?

HILL: The word "abandoned" came from a police informational report. We haven`t -- none of the family was able to see the car before or after it was impounded by the police. We signed a permit so that the CSI unit could look at it. But they haven`t given us any information as to what kind of shape the car was in, where it was parked, what was found inside, what was not found inside.

So we don`t know if her purse was there, if her phone was there. Her credit card, driver`s license, anything like that. We don`t know if it was found with the car or -- or what. We don`t have that information. The police know and they`re not telling us, I guess because it`s part of an ongoing investigation. We`d like to know, but more than the information, we want to know where Anne is.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, I think you should know.

There`s two key witnesses who reportedly interacted with Anne around the time she vanished. One male told cops he saw Anne at a McDonald`s with bad people. Another male said later that night at 10 p.m., Anne watched a movie with him and his brother at his brother`s house near the same University of Central Oklahoma campus. He said that Anne left alone that night.

Now I want to bring in Darcie Parton Scoon, the private investigator that`s working on this case, apparently when authorities questioned this unnamed source, he said yes, they all watched a movie together but he couldn`t remember where his brother`s house was located. I find that highly suspicious, should we even believe this guy?

DARCIE PARTON SCOON, PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR (via phone): I feel like I feel like there`s a lot of stonewalling between a large circle of kids. So there is definitely question as to what he`s saying.

And we have actually heard a rumor in the last day that someone, somehow got a hold of her through a method other than her phone or Facebook and had a conversation with her at midnight. So I don`t know what`s going on with these kids.

We only got the case five days ago, because that`s when the family contacted us. So we are catching up.

But there are two incidents right before she gets to the movie in northwest Oklahoma City, that we have no idea who was there. We know her vehicle -- or not her vehicle, but we know she was there for about 45 minutes, in an area that we don`t know any reason for her to have been there.

And then we`ve heard a rumor about her speaking to somebody at midnight that same night. So I don`t think that anyone is being completely honest at this point.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And do you have any idea who these so-called bad people are? I mean, it`s not the biggest city in the world, to put it mildly. How hard could it be if these two people had talked to find out who these guys are, the brothers who supposedly saw the movie with her and claim that she walked off into the night, and this other guy who says he saw her at a McDonald`s with bad people?

And another male said later that night at 10 p.m., Anne watched a movie with him and his brother at his brother`s house near the same University of Central Oklahoma campus. He said that Anne left alone that night.

I mean, how hard is it to find those people, Darcie?

SCOON: No, I know exactly where they`re at. We do know who they are. Some of them are minors. So, yes, I mean, I`m aware of who they are.

I`m also aware that her last known contact is not either one of them. So -- and we are aware who that is, as well, and we are in the process of setting up an interview with that person. So it`s definitely a situation that`s very complex.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Know, I want to bring in, we have an incredible panel tonight, Sheryl Lee Ralph, actress, Nickelodeon`s "Instant Mom." And I have a question about how the police handled this. This is a beautiful young woman, an honor student, who`s not been in trouble. We`ve got a little bit of defiant behavior that we`re going to talk about in a second.

But they immediately assumed that she was a run-away, and now the crucial first 24 hours and the first days, we`re now 13 days in, and now whatever happened, I hate to say this, but may have already happened.

SHERYL LEE RALPH, ACTRESS: What`s so very sad about this is exactly what you`re saying, that little microinequity, where somebody looked at this young woman and in their mind, they decided who she is. And that one -- that one decision may have cost this young woman her life.

At some point we`ve got to be able to look at all of our young people at this stage of development in their life, knowing that they will all make mistakes. But all of them when we think they are in trouble, need us to react and act immediately. Because I certainly feel for this mother and God knows, we don`t even know how she feels, missing her child like this.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: There`s no words. There are no words to describe what this mother is going through right now. It`s beyond hellish. It`s like living a bad dream that you can`t wake up from. We want to help her.

On the other side, we`re going to have to talk about, leaving no stone unturned, some of the things that she was posting on social media, that involved marijuana, like you know, the amount of kids who are 16 who have tried marijuana, a lot of them. So that`s no reflection on her, but could it be a clue that might lead to who -- who has taken her? I hate to say that, because I don`t want to assume -- I want her to pop up and be fine.

But it`s been 13 days now, and she`s a beautiful young woman. And when you`re 16, you think you know everything. You don`t know that you`re mortal and that there`s very bad people out there.

Stay right there, more on the other side.


HILL: Vivacious, outgoing, never met a stranger. That`s not a kid that`s planning on running away. That`s not a kid that doesn`t want to be with her family. That`s -- that`s my Annie Jo.




UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I feel like Anne didn`t choose to take off.

HILL: We know she`s out there somewhere and she wants to come home. We just miss her so much.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Where is Anne Josette Hill, the 16-year-old beauty, vanished two weeks ago tomorrow. We have her mother on the line tonight, as well as the private investigator who`s trying to solve the puzzle.

Let`s go out to the phone lines. Rosie, Georgia, what do you have to say, Georgia?

CALLER (via phone): Well, Jane, as I said to the young lady who answered the phone, I am a mother, I am a grandmother, I am a health care worker. We are not paying attention. This is a 16-year-old young lady, puberty, we are dealing with the same issues.

We just had something like this to happen here, a young lady walked off in the morning taking out the garbage and you know, everybody was out looking for her. I mean, and eventually, yes, she was picked up on a highway and taken back home to her mother.

We are not paying attention. I mean, you know, if she`s 16, she`s in puberty. We need to start evaluating her...

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Rosie, Rosie, I don`t want to cut you off, but you`re making an excellent point. She`s in the throes of puberty, we all know what happens when you`re in puberty; you become defiant.

Oklahoma City cops initially treated Anne`s mysterious disappearance as a run-away case, now cops are saying, yes, it`s possibly an abduction because she`s been gone for so long.

Now I want you to look at Anne`s Facebook page. Now, she`s a fan of some questionable topics, such as Facebook pages supporting smoking marijuana. Also she is an honor student and she had an Instagram account under the name Rebel Forever.

I don`t want to make too much of it, Dr. Gabe Crenshaw, because 16- year-olds are rebels and they like to break the rules. Otherwise they wouldn`t be teenagers. But could that also have influenced cops, they look at her Facebook page, and they go, well, she`s making references to smoking pot. Therefore we`re not going to get involved in this.

DR. GABE CRENSHAW: Yes, I mean, there`s always that possibility. But what you`ve got, the young lady who`s on the phone, she`s saying the truth, we`re not paying attention to our teens. We forget what`s going on with them psychologically and biologically. They`re still growing.

There`s something here, the prefrontal cortex. And it`s not developed fully yet. So their decisions that they`re making, that they really have no idea of the ramifications and consequences of their actions. So they`ve got this whole fable thing going on, that, you know, what? I`m invincible. We have all been there. But if unchecked, it can create havoc and what we see is happening right now. And the unfortunate horror that my child is missing.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, Sean Blitzer, social commentator, listening to the mother and a private investigator, I`m getting a sense that this is, let`s hope, not a stranger abduction, which is the hardest to solve, where somebody just takes off in a van and they could be three states away. That this is some kind of thing going on with some kids in the neighborhood, and somebody knows more than they`re saying. The cops need to start putting the pressure on these kids.

SEAN BLITZER, SOCIAL COMMENTATOR: Absolutely. You know, I agree with Crenshaw over here. You know, the girl, she could be -- she could -- in one instance, yes, she could be at the rebel stage and what not. But shouldn`t we, like, take this super seriously? Like to the point where, you know, yes, let`s assume the worst and just get right on it, and if the best happens, then perfect. At least we -- at least we took all precautions here.

So, yes I mean, there`s a lot of signs that say yes, the police could have looked at her Facebook and said, oh, yes, she`s has -- she`s a fan of marijuana and this and that. But that could also mean she`s a fan of, you know, getting involved with the wrong people and with the wrong crowd. And that might not be a kind of acting out. It could be a now, well, now I`m with the wrong people and taken away.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Right. Elizabeth Espinosa, so what do you think copes should do now? The private investigator seems to be doing a lot of work, but they`re not sharing information with her. What do cops need to do to bust this wide open?

ELIZABETH ESPINSA, CNN ESPANOL: And you`re absolutely right about why didn`t they ask more questions? You guess she had some questionable things that she liked, if you find that to be questionable.

But the bottom line is she`s a minor. A minor goes missing. Mom says she`s an honor student. This is not typical behavior. Don`t just quickly: "OK, you know what? She probably ran away from home. Next."

No, it doesn`t work that way, because guess what? That could be your daughter. That could be your son.

So the onus really is on that investigator with the police department, say you know what? We have to take this serious. We don`t know if somebody abducted this kid after going to watch a movie with a friend. They say that she went -- went home by herself. Well, maybe somebody grabbed her, she ran out of gas? Who knows? And why aren`t they telling mom and dad a little bit more?

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Exactly. Adam Swickle, why aren`t they saying, you know, "Here`s where we found a cell phone"? I mean, if you communicate this information, the mother can keep it, obviously, confidential. But there a lot here that we don`t have the answers to and it`s hard for us to make a determination, except that I`m actually convinced that some of the kids in that area may be hanging out at the McDonald`s. They know what happened, and they need to put the squeeze on these kids. Arrest them for whatever they can arrest them for, to find out what the heck are they hiding -- Adam.

ADAM SWICKLE, CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Let`s first just hope that she is a run-away.

The problem that we have here, and I think it`s been mentioned, is that the initial presumption by the police is always that they`re a run- away, rather than being cautious and saying that we have a teenager that`s missing, presumption in the first 24 to 48 hours, which are the critical hours, is that they`re a run-away and we lose information.

As far as the law enforcement officers, we all know they have to protect information, but they need to share this information. They need to get out there and use everybody who knows this girl, everybody who has any information about this girl, in order to assist in getting this situation resolved.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: We`re almost out of time. Private investigator, I do not believe this is a stranger abduction. But that is just my personal take on it. I don`t know if I`m right. Do you feel that the kids in the neighborhood, if they put the squeeze on them would reveal what really happened? Just a short answer.

SCOON: Well, they`re -- they probably will lawyer up, the kids in the neighborhood. And because they`re minors, police are restrained by a lot of laws that they can`t just go put pressure on them.

You`re talking about high-income kids from an elite high school that`s private and costs thousands of dollars a year. My guess is, at some point, law enforcement has run into barricades. Fortunately as a private investigator, I don`t have to have parental permission.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, you`ve just dropped a bombshell. You`re saying some rich kids from a private school are the ones who she was hanging out with? And are there drugs involved? Let me guess.

SCOON: I am not sure, you know, as far as drugs involved. You know, I`m not sure. I`ve heard rumor. We`ve seen the social media. It doesn`t really concern me at this point. I mean, pot is all over the place. I talk to kids all the time.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Would you say these rich kids from a private school, are these the ones who supposedly watched a movie with her?

SCOON: I can`t necessarily say that. I`m just saying that in this particular stonewalling, we do have several kids that -- with the Casady High School, which Anne had worked really hard to get a scholarship for, you know. And so she`s got a mom that`s a teacher. So she worked her tail off to get into this school. It`s an elite school. And, you know, there`s a lot of pressure on her.

And so right now, I`m not real concerned with a little bit of pot smoking. It`s not the worst thing we`ve ever seen.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Who cares? We just want to find her. We just want to find her.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: I just want to know if that`s a fact or a clue to finding her. Wow.

Well, I certainly hope the police department isn`t going easy on this case because there`s influential members of the community whose kids may be caught up in this.

All right, we`re going to stay on top of this. We`re going to do more digging and keep you posted.

Next, two teacher`s aides, caught on tape, appear to beat kids with special needs. At least one of these kids can`t even speak. Did officials ignore a desperate warning from another teacher, who then resorted to videotaping because nobody would listen to her?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I was heartbroken. I was very heartbroken.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This mother says the video shows her 11-year-old autistic son being mistreated, hit and tossed around by another teacher`s aid.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I really just kind of believed the school (UNINTELLIGIBLE).



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I was heartbroken. I was very heartbroken.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The video shows her 11-year-old autistic son being mistreated, hit and tossed around by another teacher`s aide.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight, public outrage. A hidden camera captures unbelievable abuse inside an Atlanta middle school.

Two teachers aides are seen on camera abusing at least two special needs students. Even worse, the teacher behind the camera says she recorded the video out of desperation, because school officials refused to believe her when she first reported the abuse.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: They don`t believe me verbally, maybe I should set up a video.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That school, that principal has failed these children.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: The anonymous hero who secretly recorded this tape says she first told administrators that teachers would slap, choke and body slam students. That was a chokehold right there. Look at this. Let`s watch this for a second.

Yes, pushing the child down. And this includes students whose mental disabilities actually prevent them from speaking, these poor little kids.

Now cops have charged with one of the aides, Alger Coleman, with child cruelty and simple battery. But the other so-called para-professional is still not arrested. Why the heck not?

Atlanta public schools said, "The safety and security of our students remain a top priority" and they, quote, "take all complaints seriously. Reporting behavior that is harmful to our students is everyone`s responsibility."

Nice words. Elizabeth Espinosa, CNN Espanol anchor, nice platitudes. But why were the allegations of this teacher not taken seriously on day one?

ESPINOSA: This is disgusting. And you know something, Jane? This story hits close to home.

I have a brother, Christian, who is now 30 years old. He can`t speak. He suffered lack of oxygen at birth. He`s like a child, you know. He`s about, you know, the mental age of a toddler.

And my brother one day came from a day program, so it`s like the school aides, through the public school system. He came home with a cigarette burn all the way around the top of his hand, and I could not prove it, but I knew that he had been in the school all day long, and that`s where it happened.

And here we have this video. There is no question in my mind that you should fire everybody at that school. And definitely, that teacher is a hero. Because like my brother Christian, these kids aren`t alone. It`s terrible, but there`s so many children right now, and adults, as well, who cannot speak that are victims of this type of abuse. Because these people who think that just because they`re disabled and they can`t talk, maybe it`s behavioral. You know, my brother, he doesn`t always go along with relatives (ph) because he understands. At school?

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you`ve got voiceless children who have no power and you do not supervise the adults in charge of them, ultimately something like this is going to happen.

This woman recorded this, OK, over the course of four days. And now parents are furious that the other aid is not facing criminal charges.

These are middle-school kids with disabilities. One`s an 11-year-old autistic boy. What cowardice to attack these children?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I really did kind of believe the school wouldn`t let it go on. I want her charged, yes today. You know, like seriously, today.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Sheryl Lee Ralph, actress, Nickelodeon`s "Instant Mom," the woman, who apparently, allegedly goaded the man on, and you see her right there, she hasn`t been charged. She`s been reassigned. What the hell?

RALPH: Let me tell you, that`s exactly what I say because, you know - - it just makes me so angry. If it had been a pack of dogs that had been treated like this, they would have come to their aid.

But these young people -- these children who cannot speak for themselves, who cannot help themselves and this is the way we treat them and we think it is ok. And it didn`t just start yesterday. It has probably been going on for a very long time and they don`t deserve it.

And the fact that the school was warned about it and chose not to do anything about it, what does it say about what we really care about all of our children, no matter what state they are in life and who they are? This is wrong and we need to wake up and pay attention.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: My message to the parents who were abused -- of the kids who were abused, sue. Sue the school, sue the city, sue everyone you can so that this never happens again to another disabled child.

So much more on this story at the top of the hour -- Nancy Grace will talk to the woman who shot that video. She will talk to the hero who risked her own life, frankly, to get that video on tape. That`s 8:00 p.m., in just a little while, less than a half an hour from now.

The NYPD was hoping to get a whole bunch of warm and fuzzies when they asked people to tweet their favorite pictures with cops. Well, you will not believe what they got instead. It has become an epic, epic disaster for the NYPD.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No doubt the NYPD`s Twitter account shows plenty of pictures with people and police smiling and happy, but as the deputy chief acknowledged in her e-mail, the uncensored exchange leaves social media users plenty of opportunities to post photos that are less than flattering.





UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When they asked people to tweet a photo with a member of the NYPD.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But it sort of backfired on them.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The hashtag thing kind of backfired.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I`m pretty sure they got some that they liked, and some that they didn`t. Probably more that they didn`t.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Plenty of opportunities to post photos that are less than flattering.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It was very easy to hijack this kind of campaign.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They`re calling it really a bash tag.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If you have haters, this is the kind of thing that is made for them.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight a public relations disaster for the New York City Police Department. Call it #epicfail. The department wanted Twitter users to post photos with officers of the law under the #myNYPD. They were apparently expecting fun light-hearted snapshots like this one, and they got some of those.

But mostly what they got was a rude awakening -- gritty, violent images like this one showing apparent police brutality. Most of the photos had snarky tag lines. This one reads "The NYPD will also help detangle your hair."

Another image of the young man cuffed on the back of a squad car reads, "Free massages from the NYPD, what does your police department offer?" And there is this one, "Changing hearts and minds one baton at a time."

So whose NYPD is this? Is this the view of minorities and lower income New Yorkers?

Not all the photos posted show apparent police brutality. Check out this one of an NYPD officer grinding -- coming up in a second, worth waiting for -- grinding on a woman wearing a little more than a thong. Don`t worry, we`ll show it to you in a second.

The department seems to have been taken completely, completely off- guard with the response to this campaign which was intended as a feel-good pro-community outreach kind of thing. They have been flooded with tens of thousands of mostly ugly responses. I`d like to know whether the NYPD is completely tone-deaf about how they`re perceived or whether they`re simply ignorant of how social media works.

Here`s the takeaway. You give the public an anonymous open forum, you better be ready for the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Straight out the "Lion`s Den" -- Dr. Gabe, psychologist, wow --


VELEZ-MITCHELL: -- this is the -- this is the shot, look at him. He`s doing the -- it looks like he`s doing the nasty.

CRENSHAW: He`s twerking.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Bump and grind with some woman that`s bent over.

CRENSHAW: We have a Miley Cyrus going on.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Exactly, exactly.

CRENSHAW: And no better form -- no better form. Jane, you know what? I`m really glad that this has actually happened because let me tell you something, they`re not paying attention. Get this, in November of 2013, according to the Civilian Complaint Review Board, more than 28 percent of cases were brought against them and the NYPD about their misconduct and the NYPD refused to investigate it. It was already up more than 13 percent from last year.

You know what? You don`t want to listen to the complaint review board, we`ll hit you up on Twitter, I bet we`ll get your attention now. Psychologically, you can`t do this to people.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: That`s like opening up a can of worms.

ADAM SWICKLE, CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY: I`d like to know -- Jane, if I can, I would like to know who made the decision to try to do this, Twitter, Facebook --


SWICKLE: -- the purpose of this is to try to expose people.

CRENSHAW: The arrogance -- it`s the arrogance.

SWICKLE: It`s ignorant. It makes absolutely no sense why they would do this.

ESPINOSA: But you know what Jane, this goes to show -- it goes to show how disconnected they are. It just goes to show how disconnected they are from the community truthfully. Because LAPD knows with the rampart scandal back in the day, they would never do this.


ESPINOSA: They get it. They get that there are people out there that would find this as the opportunity to throw everything at them.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Let me say this. It`s also New York`s stop-and- frisk policy. Ok.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: New York`s stop-and-frisk, that`s a policy that New York has had. It`s been one of the most controversial policing techniques in recent memory and it certainly doesn`t endear officers to the public, the majority of people being stopped and frisked are minority males. That`s shown clearly in the study. Critics say it wrongfully promotes racial profiling of people who aren`t doing anything wrong.

And, you know, there`ve been stories written about middle aged white men who walk around practically with like coming out of their backpack and aren`t stopped, but yet they`ll stop a minority male, look in their pockets, find a joint and the next thing you know, Sheryl Lee Ralph, that young man then has a criminal record which then prevents him from becoming a contributing member to the society.

RALPH: Yes. You know, it`s interesting. You know, marijuana is becoming legal across the country, but it seems as though one of the number one ways that a young man of color whose life can be ruined is by marijuana.

And, you know, when you talk about these micro-aggressions, micro- inequities, you`re right, somebody looks at a young person and decides who they are and then those little things that they think they are become real for that person. We have got to stop this and change what it is we think we think about people.

But let`s get back to Twitter. It is obvious now that Twitter can make or break your brand. And on Twitter, there are millions of silent voices and they are very loud.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Let me bring in Marc Harrold, a former police officer. Mark, does this surprise you, this overwhelmingly negative response to this, well, it was supposed to be this PR move by the NYPD and it`s called #blowback.

MARC HARROLD, A FORMER POLICE OFFICER: No, it doesn`t really surprise me. Look, if this really was an open forum as they said later to try to cover it. That would be great, an open forum, the community and law enforcement -- that could be helpful in social media to be a positive.

Bottom line though it`s -- most people who take pictures of the police, who take the time to do it -- it`s usually pictures that put the police in a negative light. So as a PR, this is an absolute disaster. But I think what they said later, this could be an open forum. That would be very valuable. I hope they do use social media for transparency.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, what should they do Marc? Should they do training? Should they do -- I mean look at this guy, he`s got a baton, he`s got one leg in the air, he`s going after some Occupy Wall Street person. The demonstrators in Occupy Wall Street are also citizens, just because they don`t have banking jobs, doesn`t mean they don`t have the right to protest.

HARROLD: Well training is always key. One of the reasons that snapshot pictures in a law enforcement setting can be so damaging or look so damaging is there`s really no context. You don`t know what happened before. You don`t know what happened after.

I looked at a lot of these photos -- they look very problematic. But generally speaking a snapshot of any kind -- you don`t know what had happened before or after. And a lot of times these show or these appear negative lights for law enforcement.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Look at this -- ok. Look at the cover of the Daily News, "Bash Tag" with some of the photos that we showed you. Basically NYPD`s tweet outreach turns into brutal fiasco.

I think, don`t blame the messenger. Take the message, NYPD, and do something with it. You`ve been basically given a very important piece of evidence that you`re doing something wrong and you need to change your attitude. And you got to train those cops to treat everybody the same way. I don`t care if they`re walking out of the world`s -- the banking center of the world, or they`re protesting outside.

They`re all Americans, we`re all Americans, we all deserve to be treated with equal respect.

Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott, not holding anything back, and I mean, they`re not holding anything back. Dean not only admits to cheating, but you will not believe what he says about his wife`s sexual abilities or lack thereof. It`s humiliating.


TORI SPELLING, REALITY STAR: I know taking (inaudible) everything I have, I`ve been blessed. And me I have the perfect family. I have an amazing family. And I think we`re complete.




SPELLING: Every tabloid, they always got it wrong except one week they got it right.

DEAN MCDERMOTT, REALITY STAR: We would have sex once every two weeks. It wasn`t fantastic.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He was out of control. It was about the alcohol. It was about the drugs. It was about the sex.

SPELLING: I can never give him enough sex. Like he`s never going to be happy with just me.

MCDERMOTT: I`m insatiable. My worst nightmare is what I did. Absolutely, I cheated on my wife. That`s my worst nightmare.

SPELLING: Or was it that you got caught?


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Is this Hollywood heart break turning into a Hollywood hot mess? Actress Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott put all the nitty-gritty scandalous details of they love life on display. I mean it is a display of dirty laundry and it`s scandalous.


MCDERMOTT: We have four kids, so in the sex department, there were ebbs and flows, is that safe to say?

SPELLING: We had a great relationship, and we had a great sex life.

MCDERMOTT: We would have sex once every two weeks, it wasn`t fantastic.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: A whopping 1.2 million viewers tuned in to watch "True Tori" last night where new details about Dean`s cheating ways came to light. Tori even revealed the moment she found out about her husband`s affair with a much younger woman.


SPELLILNG: He told me, I don`t know -- there`s nothing, nothing happened. He was looking at me and I noticed that his right eyebrow was shaking. I said, what would you say if I said I knew her name? He was like -- what`s her name? I said her name is Emily. He said, yes.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Dean finally admitted to his extramarital affair and that was only the beginning. The day after Tori confronted him, Dean checked into a rehab for a slew of personal and health issues including addiction, depression and fallout from the affair even saying sex is his escape just like alcohol or drugs.


SPELLING: It`s like I can never give him enough sex, like he`s never going to be happy with just me.

MCDERMOTT: I`m insatiable. And sex was an escape, just like drugs and alcohol.

SPELLING: I don`t understand, like why her?

MCDERMOTT: I wasn`t attracted to her. It was -- it was like -- it was just like a warm body.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Whoa, RadarOnline Alexis Tereszcuk, you have new bombshell information about how Tori is allegedly coping with the stress of this affair.

ALEXIS TERESZCUK, RADARONLINE: This is absolutely killing her. Not only is it the affair, but she`s been actually through a lot of health issues in the last years. She had a really difficult birth. She was in the hospital for months and she is devastated by this. And she`s turning to everything that`s she probably shouldn`t turn to for help.

Look at her -- she has fallen apart on this show. Her marriage has fallen apart. The thing that really upsets me though was she`s saying that she can never give her husband enough sex. I think it`s really sad that Tori doesn`t feel like they share stuff, they don`t make love. She`s having to give him something important to keep him.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Alexis, let me ask you. Do you buy that she`s really crying here, or is this fake?

TERESZCUK: Why do you say that? She`s an actress. She`s an actress. I was thinking that as she was saying it. She`s also an actress. And a good one, I loved her on "90210".


VELEZ-MITCHELL: I don`t know that I`m necessarily crying. I don`t buy any of these things on any of these reality shows. No offense to Dean and Tori. It`s nothing personal. And by the way, we reached out to them and didn`t hear back. They`re invited on our show anytime.

Now, let me say this. Dean and Tori have been married seven years. They have four kids together. Lifetime`s docuseries, "True Tori" takes a look at their life post-affair to see if the Hollywood couple can rebuild what they once had. And it`s not pretty.


MCDERMOTT: What are your thoughts about me coming home?

SPELLING: When? Coming home when?

MCDERMOTT: Soon. Quite frankly, I`m really ready to come home.

SPELLING: I don`t think I`m comfortable with that yet.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Dr. Gabe, what I find fascinating is she thinks that their sex life was great and he thought it was horrible and so they only had sex once every two weeks. Is that a common disconnect, where the wife thinks it`s fantastic or one member thinks it`s fantastic and the other says it`s awful?

CRENSHAW: Sure. Sure. Because once kids are involved, you know, a woman is busy raising the kids. She`s got a 15, 18-month-old baby. She had a difficult pregnancy, et cetera. And so she`s doing everything she can because it`s about loving her and the family. Women are interested in you loving me and the family. It`s a package deal.

But men still have that physical need happening, and they`re going like, I love my kids but I can`t sleep with them. I need you. It`s a disconnect. And they don`t talk about it.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: It`s important.

CRENSHAW: And it`s about appreciation.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: If there`s one thing that this show accomplishes, it opens up the conversation of how marriages can stay hot after you have several kids.

More on the other side.


VELEZ-MITCHELL: Alexis, Tori`s dad was an entertainment mogul, a very rich man. Why does she even need to do all this?

TERESZCUK: She was absolutely cut out of the will. Aaron Spelling lived in a $100 million house that they built and didn`t leave Tori a penny. Her mother, Candy Spelling, is still alive. She controls all of the money. She has been incredibly stingy with it. And she doesn`t share it with Tori. Her brother Randy gets some money but he`s certainly not giving any to Tori.

So she basically is Hollywood`s newest version of poor little rich girl. She needs the money. She has four kids to support. She has to -- she`s been selling things. She`s selling her store clothes, she`s selling her furniture -- everything. It`s because she`s broke.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Unbelievable. Thank you, Alexis. That`s sad. I now feel sorry for Tori and Dean.

Nancy is up next.
