3:15 am
investigators believe he acted out in violence after being served with a protective order taken out by an ex-girlfriend. across hesston today, it was a time to come together at sunday services to honor the victims, and at a town hall meeting where sergeant chris carter, one of the first on the scene was embraced by the community. >> the people that worked at that place were phenomenal. their actions were heroic that day. >> reporter: hesston strong has become a motto here. >> they're all going through a really tough time. the least i could do is come out and help. >> reporter: for many, healing also means forgiveness and compassion, even for the killer. >> i don't know what he was going through, but obviously, he felt this was the way out, and so my heart just aches for him. >> reporter: there will be a memorial service tonight at hesston high school. next week, his ex-girlfriend is

knowingly giving him weapons knowing he was a convicted felon. syria remains relatively calm tonight, two days into a partial cease-fire, but as elizabeth palmer reports from homs, the quiet has brought little comfort. >> reporter: three years a the old city of homs was the fiercest line in the war in syria. but then it fell to the government and the war moved on, leaving a wasteland and hundreds of thousands of homeless people. in some parts, residents are trickling back, reestablishing the essentials of life, commerce, even school. this is day two of the partial cease-fire, and people are holding their breath, hoping it will hold. right on the edge of town, we can hear the sounds of fighting, though. but with no monitors anywhere, it's impossible to say who is
3:17 am

thousands of e-mails released this weekend show how the michigan governor's office struggled to handle a water crisis in flint.
3:21 am
for months and has this update. >> reporter: just weeks before goifrn snyder declared the river water unsafe to drink, a deputy tried to discourage a switch back to the old water-source. treasury deputy told the governor's aide, gentlemen, in the attached is a description of what it would cost to reconnect to detroit-provided water, i assume/hope no one is seriously considering that option. the estimated cost was $12 million a year. the city eventually did reconnect to detroit water in october of 2015. days after the governor declared flint's river water unsafe. the announcement was triggered by an independent study that linked lead poisoning in children to the water. one thing we keep hearing is that the governor is not involved or is detached. this would be good to show that he's there and cares.
3:22 am
there, we can avoid the protests and still get the optics. had but protests have continued. the fallout was eerily predicted in an e-mail sent more than a year ago when the governor's special pro jebs manager wrote, this is a public relations crisis waiting to explode nationally. friday, the governor admitted that he should have been more directly involved back when his aides first e-mailed about the problem. >> that's where i'm kicking myself every day. i wish i would have asked more questions. i wish i wouldn't have accepted answers. i'm not going to have that happen again. >> reporter: snyder says he's working to expand health care coverage for flint residents and subsidize their water bills. adrianna diaz, cbs news, chicago. um next, an elephant's

this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. i'm jeff glor. the biggest day in the presidential primary season comes tomorrow. super tuesday. 12 states involved. democrat bernie sanders is promising a come back after his big loss to hillary clinton in
3:31 am
clinton came away with 73% of the vote and 26% for sanders. super tuesday could bring donald trump closer to the nomination. in virginia, our battleground tracker shows trump with 40% of the support of voters, compared with 27% for marco rubio. in georgia, trum is at 40%. but in his home state of texas, cruz is out front with 422% %. cruz discussed the race with john deck ickerson on "face the nation". >> i think tuesday is the most important day of this primary election. the most delegates will be awarded in wum one night on super tuesday. 65% of republicans believe donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton, and we are
3:32 am
beaten donald trump, and we're the only candidate that can beat donald trump. if you look at the super tuesday states, we are running neck in neck with donald across sum per tuesday. if we come together, if conservatives stand together, we're going to have a grate night -- great night on tuesday. >> if they don't, is he unstoppable? >> there in s no doubt that if donald trump steams through super tuesday, it may happen. but if you are at home and you don't want donald trump to be the republican nominee, then the only candidate who can beat donald is our campaign. so even if you like another candidate, stand with us, if you don't want donald to be the nominee. because if and when we stop helm on super tuesday, that's how we
3:33 am
nominating a proven conservative, which is what it's going to take to beat hillary. >> what did you make of chris christie endorsing donald trump? >> i don't think that was a big surprise. i think it was a blow to the rubio campaign, but at the end of the day, the washington establishment is going to go where they're going to go. this really on super tuesday is a battle to determine where conservatives go. and i think the debate this week was some powerful moments of clarity. donald trump substantively has the same issues as hillary clinton. he agreed had clinton on toppling the government in libya it led to handing that government over to radical islamism. he agreed with hillary clinton hon being quote neutral between israel and the palestinians. as president, i won't be neutral. america will stand unapologetically with israel. and on domestic policy, donald
3:34 am
and hillary clinton on the wall street bailout, the tarp bailout of big banks. i think the government ought to be standing with main street, working men and women. and then you put on top of that the ethical issues, whether it is refusing to release his taxes. >> why is that a problem if he doesn't release his taxes? >> he said in the debate, gosh, i'm being audited for two years, then he said three years, then he said maybe five years. if there's a problem in his taxes, the voters have a right to know. folks in the media are going to naek a heyday about any problems in his taxes, and primary voters have a right to know. and hess excuse that he's audited makes it more important. mitt romney suggested there could be a bomb slel there shell there. i don't know if there is or not,
3:35 am
>> speaking of candor, he said some pretty bracing things about you. and you said you still like him. >> donald is a charming person. >> he didn't say charming things about you. >> he can turn on you and get nasty and personal and vicious. but listen, i treat him as an entertainer. i laugh it off. it's like going to the circus and seeing the acrobats and dancing bears. he's willing to say things that are patently false. so, for example, at the debate this week, he backed off of his health care position for 20 years. for 20 years, he has agreed with hillary clinton and bernie sanders on socialized medicine saying obamacare doesn't go far enough. he wants the government to pay for everyone's health care and control it. and he and i had a back and forth where i asked, is it true or false that he said the government should pay for everyone's health care. he said it's false. listen, within minutes, we put out a video contrasting what he
3:36 am
earlier saying exactly the opposite, and what i think the debate this week did is gave real clarity to the voters, that to beat hillary we need a consistent conservative, someone who has stood for free market principles, who has stood for the constitution, and critically, who stood for the working men and women of this country, you know, you look at, we talked a lot about done ald donald's record on immigration. given that he faced a $1 million court judgment for being part of a conspiracy to hire illegal aliens, given that just this week news broke that he is hiring foreign workers at his fancy hotel in florida. and he claims, you know, he did an interview after the debate where he said, well, gosh, you can't find americans to do these jobs, to be weighters or waitresses or bellhops. what ridiculous nonsense of the "new york times" reported roughly 300 americans applied
3:37 am
he only hired 17. instead, he brought in foreign workers, because they're captive workers because you can pay them less because they can't leave. and i think the american men and women are getting hammered right now. they want someone to stand with them, and partly the reason so many conservatives are organizing behind our campaign is i am the one who has led the battle against amnesty, to secure the border and for the working men and women.o'reilly presented you with a hypothetical. in an interview, give and similar scenario, you said we don't have a system that knocks on doors of every person in america. seems like in one case you were not knocking on the doors and getting them and on the other you are. >> we don't have storm troopers
3:38 am
single american person. but when we have evidence that a particular person has committed a crime, we send law enforcement to apprehend them. and the specific question was visa overstays. right now, current law requires a biometric exit entry system when you come in on a visa. and the obama administration is ignoring federal law. 40% of illegal immigration is not people who cross the borders illegally.
3:39 am
3:40 am
as we head into super tuesday, marco rubio's looking to win his first primary state and ripping into donald trump, calling him a con man. john dickerson spoke with both rubio and trump for face the nation. >> i'd like to ask you about a washington post headline that says, quote, rubio's strategy
3:41 am
do you agree with that characterization? >> no. we're not the frontrunner, we're an underdog, and that's a role i relish. i've been an underdog both in life and in politics. we're going to pick up a lot of delegates on tuesday. they're awarded proportionally. here's what never going to happen in this race. there's never going to be a time where the republican party rallies around and says you have to get out or any one has to get out for purposes of rallying around donald trump. he is not a conservative. he's trying to pull off the biggest scam in american political history, basically a con job where he's trying to take over the republican party telling people he's someone he's not. we're going to be as long as it takes, as many states as it takes to make sure i'm the nominee and that donald trump never gets the 1,236 delegates. >> your campaign has got and lot
3:42 am
the question from some, though, is it too little, too late? >> i don't think so. i neff wanted it to get to this point. i hoped by its own course, by the way the media covers politics people would open their eyes and see who he really is. but he's been able to fool a significant number of people into believing that he is something that he is not. donald trump is a world class con artist. he kond all these people that signed up for trump university. now he's trying to do the same thing for republican votes. he's trying to convince them that he'll stand up to illegal immigration, but he hires illegal immigrants, he hires foreign workers for his hotels. that he's going to bring back jobs from china and mexico, but in fact he creates jobs in mexico and china because that's where all the suits and ties that he sells are made. we're going to unveil it. and the more people learn about
3:43 am
>> you said he's running a big scam, it's a con job. how can you possibly still retain the position that if he's the nominee you'll support him? >> because he's never going to be the nominee, so i'm not worried about a hypothetical that's never going to happen. >> well, i think you understand exactly what's going on. you pick up any paper and it's always talking about how are we going to overthrow donald trump. i'm representing a tremendous, i'm representing millions of people that really feel angry and disenfranchised. and these are great people, and i love them. and i tell you what, we're not being treated right. the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> let me ask you a question about this question of taxes. you're being audited. you said you won't release your returns. what about releasing a summary? that's what candidates will do, it will show your deductions, your tax rate, will you do that?
3:44 am
and by the way, we've shown a tremendous company. it's over 10 billion in net worth that i've built with a small starter loan years ago. that's down and filed in the federal elections office. and if they want to see it they can see it, and obviously, all of your cohorts have gone through it in great detail. you don't learn very much from tax, hey, john, you don't learn very much from tax returns, let me tell you right now. but when you're under audit, you don't give your papers. i've been under audit for so many years. every year i get audited for i think ten years, 12 years. i've been audited. and i think i'm being singled out, and it's not a fair situation. i have friends that are very wealthy, and i say, you get audited? they don't know what i'm talking about. it's very unfair. >> let me ask you, it's also been raised about foreign workers in florida.
3:45 am
were people who wanted the job. you said basically you could only find foreign workers because there weren't americans who wanted the jobs. but the "new york times" said there were beam people who did want the jobs. >> d's very hard to hire qualified people. and a lot of people didn't want the job because it's a three or four month job, it's just during the season. we call it the hot season, the high season. it's hard to get people. everybody is working. and then during the offseason, it's easy, but we don't have the people during the offseason, because the club closes during the offseason. so a rot of people don't lot of people don't want a part-time job. >> are' saying companies should come babb here, build their products here, have american workers. why wouldn't they say a version of what you're saying? they can't find workers. >> they're full-time jobs. when you're talking about that kind of thing you're talking
3:46 am
a lot of the people we've made offers to, when they hear it's part-time job or a four month or five-month job, i understand this, they're not interested. they're american people, they're not interested. what you don't hear about is the thousands of people that i do hire. i have thousands and thousands of people on my payroll. over the years, i have had tens of thousands of people who work for me. are' picking out one club that has a high season, and it's very, very hard to get people in palm beach during the season, the social season. >> michael hayden said that if you ordered u.s. forces to kill the families of terrorists, which you've suggested and also to use water boarding as you've also suggested, that they would refuse you. what's your response to that? >> i don't know what he means by refuse. i can only tell you there's a lot of bad things going on. they're chopping off heads in syria and all over the middle east. isis is doing a number and
3:47 am
doing it now. and all i know is that when they start chopping off heads, we have to be very firm. we have to be very strong. we have to be very vigilant. i heard his statement and we have to be very strong. can you imagine these people that chop off heads of christians and plenty of other people and they do did routinely and drown people in big steel metal cages. they drown them. they leave it in for a half hour and pull it up and everybody's dead. when they talk about us with water boarding, they have to give me a break. if we're not going to be tougher, we're never going to win this war. the cbs "cbs overnight news" will be right back. say, have you seen all the amazing technology in geico's mobile app? mobile app? look. electronic id cards, emergency roadside service, i can even submit a claim. wow... yep, geico's mobile app works like a charm.
3:48 am

people throughout this country are resonating to our message, and the message is that super pacs and a corrupt campaign finance system are destroying american democracy. we're proud that we have received 4 million individual contributions, more than any candidate in american history at this point, and i think, john, people understand that the economy is rigged. they're working longer hours for low wages, all the income and wealth, almost all, is going to the people on top. even in south carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of people 29 years of age or younger. the future of the democratic party, the future of this country is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights, dealing with student debt, which i got to tell you is just crushing people all over this country. making public colleges and universities tuition free, those
