the track can make money is if slot machine gaming is permitted on the premises. neither rose croft or any other location in prince georges county was among the five sites for slots approved by maryland voters in 2008. and legalized slots remain a issue. they show up to address on the bill that would flatly prohibit slot machines here. the bowie state professor talked about the economic benefits of gaming. >> and that would create 3,436 jobs. jobs would increase by 220 new employees to the county. >> reporter: some urge the council to keep the door open for slots. >> the state discussed the possibility of offloading the retirement of school teachers to the county and slots could bring revenue to buffer some of the financial impact if this occurs. >> reporter: others adamantly
oppose the spread of legalized gambling. >> and i am concerned about the man who does and loses his rent. loses his utility mean, loses his house. stand in front and vote jeans in prince georges county. >> the bill was killed for now. the vote, 5-4. the couple passed a resolution counting on the state legislature to require a local referendum. if a slot's proposal for pg comes back in the future. but it was 5-4. the county is deeply divided. bottom line today, the county council refused to put a permanent thumbs down on slots in the future and, brian, can you expect the owners of this raceway to try again in the future and supporters, many taxpayers, want slots to try again and probably next year to somehow bring slots here to
rose croft and pg county. >> what about the resolution asking the state legislature to require the local referendum. do i have have any legs in annapolis? >> i don't think so. none of the -- when the past did the statewide referendum, they were asking statewide voters as a whole, and they did not, the state enabling legislation did not give local options to say no. i don't see them in annapolis allowing pg to be treated differently. >> police are looking for the man you see here who terrified a woman in a fairfax county parking lot. the same spot where another fairfax woman was last seen alive. look at the left side of the surveillance picture. the victim is seen walking toward the car. the fairfax plaza shopping center last night. look at the man in the top left. he claims he climbed into her passenger side as he unlocked the car. another car drove off as she started screaming and behind
the pillar before running off. and this is the same shopping center and the police are not holding this suspect to the death. >> and it might be illegal for kids to be out past ref p.m. in montgomery county. county council is considering a curfew. and they're discussing that bill tonight. wisdom. tonight is a private hearing on that particular matter. we have some information that may come out of the hearing tonight and councilman, you are talks about the legislation tonight that will kind of go look for the curfew and instead. explain that? >> the curfew is unidentified. the youth crime is down in montgomery county and that is a blunt way to get the misbehavior by a few people. what we really need is some
targeted tool to use. and that is what the loitering prowling bill would do and that is to get piece say chance, the commune that is -- when they see a threat to intervine. before the actual damage happens. >> and this is. >> the problem, is it targets a age group and is lemed to certain hours of the day. that is a tool that is limited to only people under 18 and five hours a day and effects a lot of innocent people. they're law abiding and what we need is a tool that targets something that is a threat to other people. >> and one thing that spurred all of this, starting about the talk on the curfews, an incident on july 4th and you were saying that the curfew if it was in place would not have worked. >> right. >> and that was a gang fight in
silver spring and turned out to be an isolateed event and the gang members gathered at 10:30 in the evening and that is before the curfew would have kicked in. that would have allowed the police to address that suspicious and behavior that was occurring before getting out of hand. >> what is going to happen tonight? >> we had a work seg on december 1st, the public safety committee is going to vote on the curfew and on the loitering prowling bill. >> and that has more support than loitering and prowling, more than the curfew? >> there is less opposition. the pta oppose the curfew, the fraternal order of police opposes the curfew and i think people concluded that the curfew is not the way to go and we need a different approach. >> thank you very much, councilman andrews, brian, back to you. >> thank you, wisdom. eight d.c. activists arrested with mayor gray are on trial. and hit with misdemeanor
charges. and they can go to court instead. 92. and a trial in the maryland robo call scandal has been delayed and-by-accused of encouraging black voters to staying home while working for the former governor robert ehrlich. another aid charged with election conspiracy and that trial will start later this month. after eight months of uprising, the regime gunned down civilians. an amateur photographer caught the video of showing in the city. the morgue has received 19 bodies, all shot and they say between 70 and 90 people were killed yesterday. cereal -- syria will not allow media into the country so nothing is confirmed. the last six weeks, the last u.s. troops in iraq are scheduled to come home. there is still questions about the president's decision and members of the senate armed
services committee are seeking answers. defense secretary leon pennate testified saying a rock -- iraq is ready to take back the security reins. some remain divide. >> sends a clear message to the iraqi people in the arab world and that the u.s. keeps the commitments. >> i continue to believe the decision represents a failure of leadership, iraq spree american and that it was a sad case. >> with america gone, iraq's neighbor iran will gain more power. things got heated between opinionetta and senator mccain today. they disagree over why president obama announced a troop withdrawal. the truth is that this administration was committed to the complete withdrawal of u.s. troops in iraq and made it
happen. >> senator mccain, that is not true. >> well -- . >> can you can believe that and i respect your believes. >> and i respect your opinion. >> and that is not -- . >> and the outcome is not exactly as predicted. >> that is not how it happened. >> it is how it happened. >> this is about -- a lap an. >> we're not -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> this is about negotiating with a sovereign country, an independent country. this was about their needs. >> occupy wall street campers may have to go home. police are flushing them out of parks in new york. again, they win the right to stay. a live report coming up. >> and what would a major toll hike do to your budget? hear how much you may have to pay to use the dullet toll road. and another warm day today. a couple of showers are lurking south of d.c. make sure you pack your rain gear tomorrow. we have rain in the forecast. feldy, what do you have in sports tonight? >> everyone's blaming the quarterbacks for the redskins woes, whether that is not the only problem.
