7:04 am
bill which bill clinton signed into law as president. they argue the bill sent a disproportionate amount of african-americans to prison. >> i don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out onto the street to murder other african-american children. maybe you thought they were good citizens. she didn't. she didn't. [ cheers and applause ] you are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter. >> reporter: and in new york, the race for president turning into a subway series. >> oh, yes. >> reporter: hillary clinton opting for the 4 train where she struggled with her metro card swiping it five times before it worked. while senator bernie sanders strolled to a local diner. both questioning one another about who is more qualified to hold office. >> you know, if you want to question my qualifications, let
7:05 am
american people might wonder about your qualifications, madam secretary, when you voted for the war in iraq the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in the modern history of america. >> well, it's kind of a silly thing to say but i'm going to trust the voters of new york who know me and have voted for me three time, twice for senate, once in the presidential primary. >> reporter: another new york native also firing back at clinton. >> she hasn't been in the subway for 20 years if she was ever in the subway and it's so bad. the picture of her riding around for -- it's called pandering. it's so bad. >> reporter: and across town near coney island senator ted cruz getting a warm reception after a rocky start in the big apple. >> would you like to make -- >> i would love to. >> reporter: touring a brooklyn m matzo factory. not ready to break bread with cruz new york's

9/11. ru rudy jgiuliani saying he's votig for trump and telling cruz, quote, it's new york city. we're family. i can make fun of new york. but you can't." but cruz undeterred and not running away from the new york values label he put on trump. >> because everyone in new york and outside of new york knows exactly what i meant by that and it is the liberal values of democratic politicians who have been hammering the people of new york for decades. >> reporter: now, we should note rudy giuliani is voting for trump but technically not endorsing him trump doing things rudy didn't like including his tweeting and telling melania and trump to lay off twitter a little bit. >> matt dowd in austin and jon karl and let me begin with you. new york city so famous for these unpredictable campaigns and a lot of signs of it yesterday. >> oh, absolutely. this is the point in the campaign, george, where patience
7:07 am
are frayed. we've seen that on the clinton side and on the bernie sanders side. today being international buddhist day maybe everybody ought to just take a moment, do a little meditation, maybe take a nap and get back to what the campaign is supposed to be about. >> usually give good advice. i'm not sure anyone will take that advice. to jon karl, the republican speaker of the house paul ryan raising eyebrows some drafting him at a contested convention. he routed it out but raising eyebrows with this tweet and video. >> what really bothers me the most of politics these days is this notion of identity politics. that we're going to win an election by dividing people. rather than inspiring people on our common humanity and our common ideals and culture on the things that should unify us. >> you hear those piano chords. shower looks and sounds like a campaign ad. >> different from what we've
7:08 am
trump but they put out an extraordinary statement about the speculation he would be running for president at the convention saying the speaker is grateful for the support but he is not interested. he will not accept a nomination and believes the nominee should be someone who ran this year. so now he's not only saying he's not interested but wouldn't accept a nomination if offered. that said, george, this is a national campaign for speaker ryan. he does believe that the rhetoric that you see at the presidential level could hurt republicans running for congress and let me tell you, i spoke just yesterday to one of the most influential voices in the congress who told me he still holds out hope that a deadlock convention will turn to paul ryan as the presidential nominee >> that's a pretty shermanesque statement. either donald trump or ted cruz -- >> absolutely. i think right now it's one of the two of them unless we get to something like an eighth or ninth or tenth ballot then i think, george, everything is o
7:09 am
off and get that far down the thing anybody could get the gop nomination. >> okay, matt dowd, jon karl, thanks very much. all right, george, now to the manhunt under way for one of the men that broke free from a mental hospital. his accomplice in custody but he is still at large and jim avila has the latest from lakewood, washington. good morning, jim. >> reporter: a couple of fresh, strong leads overnight but police have so far come up empty in their intense search for what they say is a dangerous criminal on the loose from this mental hospital. >> reporter: this morning, the manhunt intensifying for anthony garver, one of two violent patients who escaped from a washington state mental hospital wednesday night thought to be moving east these are pictures of garver buying a bus ticket to spokane two hours after the escape. >> encouraging the public 0 pay attention if they can i meanwhile you're driving around, if someone is out of place, we'll chase down every
7:10 am
be dangerous seen here in this 2013 surveillance video at a mcdonald's with a woman he's accused of brutally murdering. he was arrested and sent to western state hospital after being found incompetent to stand trial. >> that's what's making us really nervous is that it's a pretty serious crime, the worst you can imagine and he's got mental illness so we don't know what he's thinking. we have no idea -- he could be just trying to escape and go someplace but the opportunity to commit a crime is there if he's out and that's what we want to prevent. >> reporter: police say the 28-year-old garver escaped from the hospital through a loose window sometime after 6:00 p.m. on wednesday. he escaped with 59-year-old mark alexander adams. adams taken into custody thursday in de mind, washington, this just hours after he was spotted boarding a local bus. police say he took several modes of transportation throughout the night. now authorities are pleading for the public's help in capturing his partner garver. >> i think we can all, you
7:11 am
make that guess if they don't get their medication their condition will deteriorate and will create a different person. >> reporter: police across the state in spokane say he actually showed up at his parents' house yesterday afternoon but when they called police, he ran. george. >> okay, jim, thanks very much. new video now of that mystery man from last month's attack in brussels that shows the route the man in white took as he fled the scene of the airport bombing and authorities hope will track him down. abc's alex marquardt has the latest. >> reporter: this morning belgian police are hoping this new video of the prime suspect, the so-called man in the hat, will offer them a new lead. he had been seen just before 8:00 a.m. with the two airport suicide bombers. wheeling their explosives on carts, that ripped through the departures hall. carnage and chaos as the third attacker wearing his tan coat fled, even breaking into a jog like those around him. for almost an
7:12 am
cameras that picked him up. the authorities say the man was walking through this town which is right next to the airport during that time, they say, as he walked towards brussels he got rid of his famoustan jacket. when he's seen next at 8:50 a.m. he's in a light blue shirt, the sleeves rolled up appearing to be talking on the phone. police believe he walked into brussels six miles from the airport. there seen again among the masses, 40 minutes after the second attack at the metro. elbow patches visible on his shirt, still wearing the hat. with no trace and no name, authorities now hoping the public will remember seeing him. there is more information about one of the other attackers, though, one of the suicide bombers here at the airport. the alleged bombmaker, he had worked for two months as a cleaner at the european parliament in 2009 and 2010. at the time he had no criminal record. amy. >> all right, alex marquardt, thank you for the latest. now to the in
7:13 am
three women suing spirit airlines saying the airline overserved rowdy passengers which then led to that dispute. abc's david kerley has all the details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. if an airline is serving alcohol to passengers, is that airline responsible for those passengers' behavior? the lawsuit this morning coming out of that jet brawl says yes. a half dozen women in a jetliner brawl gone viral. the fight as the spirit jet arrived in los angeles but this had been brewing for hours in the air. a lawsuit this morning says three intoxicated women blasted music from a bluetooth speaker and refused to turn it down despite the pleas of fellow passengers. three of the passengers who complained and got into that fight are now suing spirit airlines for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. attorney gloria allred is representing the three women. >> spirit airlines failed to take meaningful action to
7:14 am
monitor and/or to control these passengers. >> reporter: according to court documents obtained by abc news the women were seated behind three female passengers who, quote, thanks to spirit airli s airlines' decision to allow them to consume excessive amounts of alcohol became highly intoxicated and emboldened to behave in a rowdy and rambunctious manner". >> an airline has a duty to train its personnel to monitor and control passengers who do become intoxicated. >> reporter: overnight spirit airlines telling abc news "until we see the actual lawsuit and specific allegations, it would be inappropriate to comment at this time." all those women were escorted off the plane but the fbi says, george, nobody was arrested, nobody was charged in this case. now the lawsuit. >> that's a little strange. okay, david, thanks very much. plow to a wild car chase that played out on live tv in los angeles where two burglars tore through the streets and did some doughnuts on hollywood
7:15 am
even took some selfies before they stopped and let the police catch up. abc's matt gutman has the story. >> reporter: for nearly two hours, this duo dominated tinseltown screens. the pair in the blue convertible mustang top down despite the rain suspected burglars on what seemed an epic tour past los angeles icons. turning doughnuts on hollywood boulevard. fire of them. the passenger casually standing up in the car, even gesturing towards the news and police choppers. from doughnuts to a near t-bone almost colliding with that tmz bus as it moves into its lane. suddenly they've got company but it's not police, it's instant fans following them waving at choppers. it's tires shredded it stops in south l.a. even pulling over to let other motorists pass. the two suspects shake bystanders' hands, on the phone. >> hey, bro, that's what's up,
7:16 am
still no officers. so bystanders begin snapping -- >> it was a terrible, horrible, no good -- >> reporter: the l.a. sheriff's officer saying they face many charges for endangering the public during that. >> makes you think that maybe something else was going on. >> a slow cloud version of a high-speed chase. very weird. >> very strange. we had a preview of the next piece coming up. >> yeah, we did. a little sneak peek. now here it is historymaking moment at the masters. not the good one. anyone who has picked up a golf club knows, you would agree, george, not easy for some of the best players in the world including this pro who had a less than perfect putt. jesse palmer is with us with the story. >> you're right. we've all had bad days at the office but unfortunately for ernie els, once the number one
7:17 am
being broadcast on television. it was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad play. ernie els breaking an unwanted record six putting for a score of 9 the worst ever recorded at the first hole in masters history. >> i had three goes then it just went all over the place and, you know, the whole day. >> reporter: els just initially 24 inches from a par messing up putt after putt after putt. not once, not twice, but six times. blaming his case of the yips on nerves. >> that's what happens when you have the heebie-jeebies. i can't explain it. i've played a lot of these things and i couldn't pull the putter back on the 1st. >> reporter: some say it might be the worst exhibition of putting since "happy gilmore." he is remaining positive. >> very difficult. we'll see where we take it
7:18 am
here. >> reporter: els' 9 not the highest score ever on a single hole. that's a 13 which surprisingly has been done twice and, guys, obviously not surprising. things not looking good for the hall of famer. after day one he sits near the bottom of the leaderboard. >> i guess they couldn't just give him the putt. >> i six-putt twice every round i play so i feel ernie els' play. just go in your hole. what, are you too good for your hole? >> i love that. jess, thanks. >> good impression. >> more to come. >> it's friday. >> more to come. all right, let's head over now to ginger with the storm hitting the southwest. >> yeah, that's what people are probably saying in the southwest and l.a. go to your home, low pressure, system. phoenix, arizona, yours was really good, jess, phoenix, arizona had rain for the first time since january 31st. you'll get rain in places that need it. your weather 30 seconds away.
