a virginia police officer. the officer was on her very first patrol. woodbridge officer ashley guindon was killed when she responded to a domestic violence call at the home of ronald hamilton. he's also accused killing his wife before police arrived. hamilton is a sergeant assigned to the pentagon. guindon will be remembered today at her hometown in new hampshire. the parents of a critically injured teen in salt lake city are looking for answers this morning. the 17-year-old had a stick in his hand friday night when he was shot by police. investigators initially said that police fired when the teen tried to attack them. now they say they're trying to figure out exactly what happened. the two officers involved in the shooting were wearing body cameras. some new details in the fatal shooting of an ohio pastor in his office. police plan to charge his brother with murder. services were ending when shots were fired. parishioners ran in terror. the suspect had a history of mental illness as well as violence. the reverend william schooler was a former school teacher and

why? because we had real things to protest at the time like too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer. jada's going to boycott the oscars. jada boycotting the oscars is like me boycotting rihanna's panties. i wasn't invited. if you want black people every year at the oscars, just have black categories like best black friend. hollywood is sorority racist. it's like, we like you, rhonda. but you're not a kappa. because "rocky" takes place in a world where white athletes are as good as black athletes. movie. >> he did get a lot of laughs. i mean, de get the tone right, do you think? >> there was a lynching joke and joke.
>> that was quite a tone. "the new york daily news," as we were mentioning, said that he went way too far. they put him on the front page. but needed to tackle it, in typical chris rock style. >> he did it his way, didn't he? >> he did. he probably won't be back next year. he did a great job. bravo. >> next to one of the most awkward moments of the evening. > when chris rock introduced stacy dash. remember her? the actress turned fox news pundit who has mocked the necessity of b.e.t., and even black history month as the academy's new director of minority outreach. >> i cannot wait to help my people out. happy black history month. thank you. >> thank you. >> oh, boy. yeah, you could tell there was a bit of awkward silence and then a bit of polite applause. but really the best reaction may really, really didn't want to laugh.
so he did laugh. >> he didn't know what to do. neither did any of us at home. afterwards dash did take to her blog responding to her critics who charge that she's not black enough saying, i'd rather be a free-thinking black than a cookie-cutter black who thinks and votes just like all of my friends. who knew there was such a thing as cookie cutter blacks. now earlier, an even more awkward moment played out on the red carpet and the internet. a beauty company tweeted they had no idea oprah was tattooed. they couldn't believe, it was kind of awkward. as you can see, that's not really oprah. the woman with the tattoos is whoopi goldberg. >> it's different? and considering there weren't a lot of people of color there total beauty knows they screwed up. they tweeted an apology to oprah, whoopi and everyone else. >> gayle king weighed in with this image of a confused oprah.
reacting to the mix-up. king saying, we all love whoopi, but we all don't look alike. that was great. i loved it. >> love the reaction. coverage of the oscars wouldn't be complete without discussing fashion. >> yes. we're going to get to the women later but first the guys starting with the jared leto. crimson piped tuxedo with a red flower in place of a bow tie. a carnation, to be exact. tremblay who looked amazing. strutting his stuff. > such a cutie. >> he absolutely is, in a classic tux. but what you don't see are his darth vader socks. >> oh. smart kid. wanted the force to be with him. is that the right force? no? sorry. finally our own red carpet host michael strahan in an eye-catching two-tone blue tux but apparently "gq" magazine wasn't impressed. how can you criticize his necktie? they did. and they said when it comes to black tie events, there were only two options, a bow tie or no tie at all. if you can pull it off, hey, michael, you can pull it off.
amazing. now that the guys are out of the way, it is time for the real fashion to begin. >> jack's red carpet round coming up next. he's got his take on fashion. >> yeah. up for it. and it's really impressive. i might be wearing that for my halloween party. >> will you? >> yeah. een party. >> yeah. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. these are multi-symptom. well so are these. this one is max strength and fights mucus. that one doesn't. uh...think fast! you dropped something. oh...i'll put it back on the shelf... new from mucinex fast max. the only branded cold and flu liquid gel that is max-strength and fights mucus. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. how can this have been washed 12 weeks ago and still smell like springtime? unstopables in-wash scent boosters the more you pour, the more scent you'll savor. toss it in before your clothes for luxurious scent up to 12 weeks unstopables by downy.
sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker. and when i know she's into it, i get into it and... feel the difference with k-y ultragel. your heart loves omega-3s. but there's a difference between the omega-3s in fish oil and those in megared krill oil. unlike fish oil, megared is easily absorbed by your body... ...which makes your heart, well, mega-happy. happier still, megared is proven to increase omega-3 levels in 30 days. megared. the difference is easy to absorb. i did everything i could to make her party perfect. almost everything. you know, 1 i n 10 houses could get hit by an expensive septic disaster. but for only $7 a month, rid-x helps break down waste. avoid a septic disaster with
