YOU, FOLKS, I DO NOT HAVE TOTELL YOU THAT THE WORLD OUT

THERE IS SPINNING OUT OFCONTROL.

THE MIDDLE EAST IS IN FLAMES.

RUSSIAN TROOPS HAVE CROSSED INTOUKRAINE, BUT THE BIGGEST NEWS

THIS WEEKEND WAS THE SHOCKINGINVASION OF BOOB-ISTAN.

JIM.

>> A HACKING SCANDAL IS ROCKINGHOLLYWOOD THIS MORNING.

>> A USER ON THE POPULARPHOTO-SHARING SITE 4CHAN POSTED

PERSONAL RISQUE PHOTOGRAPHSSUNDAY OF NUMEROUS A-LIST

CELEBRITIES IN VARIOUS STATES OFUNDRESS.

>> A-LIST STARS LIKE JENNIFERLAWRENCE, KATE UPTON.

>> SINGERS RIHANNA AND ARIANAGRANDE AND MORE THAN 100 OTHER

FAMOUS WOMEN IN WHAT MANY CALLTHE BIGGEST CELEBRITY HACKING

EVER.

>> Stephen: THE STORY, IBELIEVE, WAS BROKEN-- STORY, I

BELIEVE, WAS BROKEN BY14-YEAR-OLD BENJAMIN PEARLMAN OF

AKRON, OHIO WHO HAS DILIGENTLYSPENT THE LAST YEAR GOOGLING

THE PHRASE "KATE UPTON NAKED."

GREAT INVESTIGATIVE WORK,BENJAMIN.

I'D LIKE TO SHAKE YOUR HAND.

ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW WHAT?

ON SECOND THOUGHT, THUMBS UP.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

APPARENTLY, UNNAMED 4CHANERSWERE ABLE TO ACQUIRE THE PHOTOS

FROM APPLE'S ICLOUD.

ACCORDING TO SECURITY EXPERTSIT'S POSSIBLE THE HACKED

CELEBRITIES HAD EASY TO GUESSPASSWORDS RATHER THAN STRONGER

PASS PHRASES THAT ARE LONG ANDHARD TO GUESS SUCH AS

1 DAY I ATE 364 BANANAS & 13CHERRY PIES.

ALTHOUGH, I THINK IT'S PRETTYOBVIOUS WHICH CELEBRITY HAS THAT

PASSWORD.

HE IS NO STRANGER--( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

HE IS NO STRANGER--( APPLAUSE )

NO STRANGER TO NUDE SCANDAL,BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE

PICTURE OF HIM WEARING CLOTHES.

( LAUGHTER )FOLKS, I CONDEMN THIS GROSS

VIOLATION OF PRIVACY BECAUSEEVERYONE TAKES NUDE SELFIES

NOWADAYS.

KEEP YOUR PHONE IN YOUR POCKETRIGHT NEXT TO YOUR GENITALS.

IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIMEBEFORE THEY GET TOGETHER AFTER A

COUPLE OF DRINKS.

I STAND WITH THE HUFFINGTON POSTWHICH PUBLISHED A SEARING OP-ED

SHAMING ANYONE WHO LOOKED AT ORSHARED THESE PHOTOS.

SO DO NOT-- I MEAN THIS-- DO NOTLOOK AT THESE PHOTOS.

YOU DON'T NEED TO.

INSTEAD, CHECK OUT ALL THESIDEBOOB AND NIP SLIP ON

HUFFPO'S ACTUAL SIDEBOOB PAGE.

THERE'S JENNIFER LAWRENCEFLASHING SIDEBOOB AT THE ROME

FILM FESTIVAL.

THAT'S WHY I CALL THE -THE MORALFULCRUM OF THE INTERNET.

OF COURSE, THE INTERNET ISN'TTHE ONLY PLACE PEOPLE DON'T FEEL

SECURE.

THERE'S ALSO EVERYWHERE ELSE.

TAKE LAST MONTH'S UNREST INFERGUSON, MISSOURI.

IT RAISED A LOT OF TROUBLINGQUESTIONS.

FOREMOST AMONG THEM-- IS JAKETAPPER GOING TO BE OKAY?

>> THESE ARE ARMED POLICE WITHSEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLES WITH

BATONS, WITH SHIELDS, MANY OFTHEM DRESSED FOR COMBAT.

NOW, WHY THEY'RE DOING THIS, IDON'T KNOW, BECAUSE THERE IS NO

THREAT GOING ON HERE, NONE, THATMERITS THIS.

THERE IS NOTHING GOING ON, ONTHIS STREET RIGHT NOW, THAT

MERITS THIS SCENE OUT OF BAGRAM,NOTHING.

WHAT IS THIS?

THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

>> Stephen: NOW, JAKE IS AFRIEND SO IT IS WITH THE

GREATEST RESPECT I SAY YOU'RE ANIDIOT.

( LAUGHTER )THE COPS DON'T NEED ARMORED

PERSONNEL CARRIERS BECAUSETHERE'S NO VIOLENCE.

THERE WAS NO VIOLENCE BECAUSETHE COPS HAVE ARMORED PERSONNEL

CARRIERS.

SAME REASON I DON'T NEED TO HAVESEX BECAUSE I'M CARRYING A

CONDOM.

( LAUGHTER )9/11 SHOWED US JUST HOW

VULNERABLE WE ARE TO VIOLENTATTACK.

THAT'S WHY TODAY I LIVE IN THEGATED COMMUNITY WITH A FENCE NO

TERRORIST COULD POSSIBLY BREACH,UNLESS THEY SOMEHOW ACQUIRE

STOOL TECHNOLOGY.

( LAUGHTER )SO IT'S NO SURPRISE THE SAME

STATE-OF-THE-ART SECURITYCAMERAS THAT PROTECT TIMES

SQUARE ALSO PROTECTS SCOTSBLUFF,NEBRASKA, POPULATION 15,039.

SORRY, AL QAEDA, BUT THEHISTORIC LAKE MINA-TARE

LIGHTHOUSE WILL NEVER STOPSHINING.

WHAT'S THAT?

IT'S NOT A FUNCTIONALLIGHTHOUSE?

YOU WIN THIS ROUND, BIN LADEN!

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ), OF COURSE, CAMERAS ALONE WON'T

SECURE OUR SHORES, SO CONGRESSPASSED THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

EXCESS PROPERTY PROGRAM WHICHDISTRIBUTES SURPLUS MILITARY

EQUIPMENT TO STATE AND LOCAL LAWENFORCEMENT.

IT'S ALL PART OF THE PENTAGON'SONGOING "TAKE A TANK, LEAVE A

TANK" PROGRAM.

AND IT HAS DONE WONDERS FORLITTLE TOWNS LIKE KEENE, NEW

HAMPSHIRE, WHICH OBTAINED ASURPLUS $286,000 BEARCAT ARMORED

VEHICLE, WHICH THEY SAID THEYNEEDED BECAUSE THE THREAT IS

FAR-REACHING AND OFTENUNFORESEEN.

KEENE CURRENTLY HOSTS SEVERALLARGE PUBLIC FUNCTIONS TO

INCLUDE AN ANNUAL PUMPKINFESTIVAL.

( LAUGHTER )DEFINITELY A TARGET.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AMERICA'SPREMIERE PUMPKIN FESTIVAL.

NEED PROOF?

( LAUGHTER )AND IT'S NOT JUST SPREADING TO

LOCAL AUTHORITIES, FOLKS.FEDERAL AGENCIES

ARE ALSO FORMING SWAT TEAMS,INCLUDING THE RAILROAD

RETIREMENT BOARD, THE CONSUMERPRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION, AND

THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A

GENETICALLY MODIFIED EAR OF CORNMIGHT COME AROUND LOOKING FOR A

LITTLE PAYBACK.

FOLKS, AS A GREAT JOURNALISTONCE SAID--

>> WHAT IS THIS?

THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

>> Stephen: HERE TO MAKESENSE OF WHATEVER IT IS IS

FORMER SEATTLE POLICE CHIEF NORMSTAMPER.

NORM, THANK YOU SO MUCH FORJOINING ME.

NORM, YOU'RE THE AUTHOR OFRANKING RANK, A TOP COP EXPOSE

OF THE DARK SIDE OF AMERICANPOLICING.

OKAY, YOU WERE THE POLICE CHIEFOF SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.

YOU DID SOME GOOD WORK THERE.

FOR INSTANCE, IN 1999, THE WTO,WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION,

MEETING WAS GOING ON IN SEATTLE.

THINGS WENT CRAZY.

WHAT DID YOU DO?

>> WELL, WE GASSED NONVIOLENT,NONTHREATENING PROTESTERS.

>> Stephen: GOOD FOR YOU.

GOOD FOR YOU.

OKAY.

YOU HAVE CALLED THAT THEWORST MISTAKE OF YOUR CAREER.

WHY?

IS IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW TODAYTHERE ARE SO MANY OTHER WEAPONS

YOU COULD USE AGAINST NONVIOLENTPROTESTERS.

YOU COULD USE A SOUND CANNONNOW.

>> LOOK, WE HAD ALL OF OURPOLICE OFFICERS OUT THERE, THOSE

ON THE FRONT LINE, IN MILITARYGARB, CARRYING MILITARY WEAPONS

AND ENGAGING IN AGGRESSIVEMILITARY ACTIONS AGAINST

NONVIOLENT PROTESTERS.

WE THOUGHT WE HAD TO DO THAT.

WE BELIEVED WE NEEDED, FOREXAMPLE, TO CLEAR A PARTICULAR

INTERSECTION.

WELL, DID WE REALLY?

DID WE HAVE TO CLEAR THATINTERSECTION?

>> Stephen: THEY SMASHED THEWINDOWS OF A STARBUCK.

DON'T YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TOSHOOT RUBBER BULLETS.

>> THEY WENT BEYOND SMASHING THEWINDOWS.

THEY ACTUALLY TOOK COFFEE FROMTHAT STORE AS WELL, IN SEATTLE.

>> Stephen: I BELIEVE AVENTIIS GRAND THEFT.

>> I BELIEVE IT IS.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> Stephen: BUT POLICE ARETHERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT,

RIGHT?

>> THEY ARE.

>> Stephen: ISN'T A BIGGERGUN OR MORE WEAPONRY JUST MORE

SERVING AND BIGGER PROTECTION?

( LAUGHTER ).

>> STEPHEN, THIS MILITARIZATIONMOVEMENT IS

EXACERBATING A REALLY STRAINEDRELATIONSHIP BETWEEN POLICE AND

COMMUNITY ACROSS THIS COUNTRY.

NO MORE THAN IN COMMUNITIES OFCOLOR WITH POOR PEOPLE AND YOUNG

PEOPLE, AND WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BEABOUT DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIPS,

BEING PART OF, NOT APART FROMOUR COMMUNITY.

>> Stephen: WHY WOULD THEPOLICE WANT TO BE PART OF THE

COMMUNITY?

BECAUSE THE COMMUNITY ISWHERE THE CRIMINALS LIVE?

>> WELL, BECAUSE, THIS ISAMERICA.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

>> AND THE IDEA BEHIND THAT--( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: YOU JUST PLAYEDTHE "THIS IS AMERICA" CARD.

>> I CERTAINLY DID.

>> Stephen: IT'S TECHNICALLYMY CARD.

BUT GO AHEAD.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> WELL, I STAND CORRECTED.

>> Stephen: ALL RIGHT, GOAHEAD.

IT'S AMERICA.

>> I THINK IT'S VITAL THATPOLICE OFFICERS ESTABLISH

GENUINE PARTNERSHIPS THROUGH THECOMMUNITIES THEY SERVE.

>> Stephen: SO THE POLICEMENGET THE EQUIPMENT.

HERE'S ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKEABOUT THE PENTAGON PROGRAM IS

YOU REQUEST THE EQUIPMENT.

YOU HAVE TO DECLARE THE NEED.

BUT IF YOU DON'T USE IT WITHINONE YEAR, YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE

EQUIPMENT BACK.

AND SO, THE POLICE SAY THEY NEEDIT FOR SOMETHING, AND THEN THEY

USE IT TO PROVE THAT THEY NEEDEDIT, PROVING THAT THEY DID.

DOESN'T THAT MEAN THE SYSTEM ISWORKING?

( LAUGHTER )>> WHAT THAT DOES IS CREATE AN

INCENTIVE FOR POLICE OFFICERS TOGET INTO ONE OF THOSE ARMORED

VEHICLES ARMED TO THE TEETH, ANDIN A PREDAWN DRUG RAID OF A

FAMILY HOME, HIT A SUSPECTEDLOW-LEVEL, NONVIOLENT DRUG

OFFENDER WHO WAS SEEN TO BE INPOSSESSION OF HALF A BAG OF

MARIJUANA.

THAT'S HAPPENING ACROSS THISCOUNTRY.

>> Stephen: ARE YOU SAYINGTHIS STUFF CAME ORIGINALLY--

IT'S NOT TERRORISM?

IT CAME FROM THE DRUG WAR?

>> IT BEGAN WITH THE DRUG WAR.

>> Stephen: OKAY, SO HOW DOWE FIX THAT, THEN?

>> WE END THE DRUG WAR.

WE END IT YESTERDAY.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

UM--( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

HOLD ON.

MR. STAMPER, ARE YOU HIGH?

>> NO.

( LAUGHTER )>> Stephen: YOU'RE NOT HIGH?

>> I'M NOT.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE NOT HIGH.

>> NO.

>> Stephen: I'M NOT WEARING AWIRE.

YOU CAN TELL ME.

>> WE HAVE WITNESSES.

>> Stephen: ON AVERAGE, THEREWERE ABOUT 3,000 SWAT TEAMS

RAIDS EVERY YEAR.

THERE ARE 50,000 SWAT TEAM RAIDSEVERY YEAR NOW.

WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE SURE THATNEVER HAPPENS TO ME?

( LAUGHTER )>> WELL, BEHAVE YOURSELF.

( LAUGHTER )( APPLAUSE ).

>> Stephen: ALL RIGHT, I AM.

>> AND SECONDLY, WORK WITH YOURNEIGHBORS.

WORK WITH YOUR COMMUNITY.

ORGANIZE, MOBILIZE, TELL YOURPOLICE DEPARTMENT THAT WE DO NOT

WANT TO SEE THIS MILITARYEQUIPMENT AND THESE MILITARY

TACTICS EMPLOYED IN EVERYDAY,ROUTINE, SOMETIMES

NOT-SO-ROUTINE CIRCUMSTANCES.

>> Stephen: UM, WELL, UM,I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I HOPE

THERE'S NEVER A REASON TO HAVEYOU BACK.

( LAUGHTER )BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING ME.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

NORM STAMPER, THE AUTHOR OF"BREAKING RANK."

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS-- ( CHEERS )

FOLKS, IF YOU CHECK YOURCALENDARS, THEN YOU'LL KNOW THAT

YESTERDAY WAS LABOR DAY MEANINGIT'S BACK-TO-SCHOOL TIME.

THE DAYS ARE GETTING SHORTER.

THE AIR IS GETTING CRISPER, ANDPARENTS ARE SHELLING OUT GOOD

MONEY ON A NEW 5 SECONDS OFSUMMER BACKPACK, EVEN THOUGH THE

ONE DIRECTION BACKPACK FROM LASTYEAR IS PERFECTLY GOOD,

GODDAMN IT. I CANNOT TELL THEMAPART.

WHEN I WAS A KID, SCHOOL WASHARD, STARTED AT THE CRACK OF

DAWN AND HAD TO WALK UPHILL BOTHWAYS.

BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY EXPECTED OFUS IN M.C. ESCHER HIGH.

GO, FIGHTIN' FISH WITH BIRDSBETWEEN THEM!

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )BIG FANS OF M.C. ESCHER HIGH.

TODAY, WE'VE GONE SOFT ON OURKIDS.

LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THEPROFESSIONAL BOO-BOO KISSERS AT

THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OFPEDIATRICS.

>> ONLY 13% OF HIGH SCHOOLSTUDENTS GET THE OPTIMAL AMOUNT

OF SLEEP.

THAT'S EIGHT AND A HALF TO NINEAND A HALF HOURS.

THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OFPEDIATRICS BELIEVES THIS

CONTRIBUTES TO OBESITY, HIGHBLOOD PRESSURE AND DEPRESSION.

>> THE NATION'S LARGESTPEDIATRICIAN GROUP SAYS DELAYING

THE START OF MIDDLE AND HIGHSCHOOL CLASSES TO 8:30 A.M.

WOULD HELP TEENAGERS WITH THEIRHEALTH.

>> Stephen: HOW WILL STARTINGSCHOOL LATER BE GOOD FOR KIDS'

HEALTH?

THEY'LL MISS THE CAFETERIABREAKFAST PIZZA.

IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT PIZZA OFTHE DAY.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

ACCORDING TO THIS NEW POLICY,DELAYING START TIMES CAN IMPROVE

STUDENTS' MOTIVATION IN CLASSAND MOOD.

WELL, WHEN AMERICA'S LARGESTGROUP OF RESPECTED DOCTORS TELLS

ME ALLOWING TEENS TO SLEEP INCAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

TO THEIR SCHOOL PERFORMANCE, IGOTTA SAY--

NICE TRY, KIDS. YOU ALMOST HADME.

( LAUGHTER )( APPLAUSE )

USUALLY -- VERY CLOSE.

USUALLY, YOUR FAKE NOTES HAVE ADOCTOR'S SIGNATURE.

FOR THIS ONE, YOU MADE UP AWHOLE ACADEMY.

NICELY DONE.

WHAT'S NEXT, THE NATIONALORGANIZATION FOR THIGH BURN

AWARENESS RECOMMENDS NO MOREROPE CLIMBING IN GYM CLASS?

YOU GET UP THAT ROPE, MISTER.

IT BUILDS REAL-LIFE ROPE SKILLS.

SO YOU HIGH SCHOOL KIDS--( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

SO YOU HIGH SCHOOL KIDS DO NOTNEED TO GO TO SCHOOL LATER.

YOU NEED TO GO TO BED EARLIER,BY WHICH I MEAN AFTER MIDNIGHT.

STAY AWAKE.

I'M STILL TALKING.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

I HAVE A SOLUTION THAT I'VE COMEUP WITH THAT I THINK WILL

BALANCE MY PARTICIPATION IN THISWORLD FOR HOWEVER LONG I MIGHT

WORLD?

>> IT MIGHT BE-- IT MIGHT BE ONEOF THE GREATEST COUNTRIES IN THE

WORLD, BUT RIGHT NOW WE ARESHOOTING SEASON FOUR OF

"HOMELAND" IN CAPE TOWN, SOUTHAFRICA, AND I CAN'T GET OVER

THAT I'M PRIVILEGED TO BE INTHAT PLACE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF

THE WORLD'S STATE OF BEING,BEING SO HORRIFYING, I'M LIVING

IN A PLACE WHERE ASELF-CONFESSED TERRORIST, NAMED

NELSON MANDELA, WAS IMPRISONEDFOR MANY, MANY YEARS, AND CAME

OUT OF THAT PRISONER SITUATIONWITHOUT VENGEANCE.

AND WITH -->> Stephen: WHY SHOULD HE

COME OUT WITHOUT VENGEANCE.

HE WAS A SELF-PROFESSEDTERRORIST.

WE WENT TO JAIL.

HE PAID HIS DEBT TO SOCIETY.

HE SHOULD COME OUT ANDAPOLOGIZE.

>> WELL -->> Stephen: NO, NO, NO, DON'T

YOU AH ME IF I ATTACK NELSONMANDELA.
