Transcript by (www.newsy****) BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource US news analysis from Newsy. The jury didn’t buy Brian David Mitchell’s insanity defense. After just five hours of deliberation, a federal jury found Mitchell guilty of kidnapping then 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart and taking her across state lines to engage in sexual activity. Most in the media agree- justice was served. JANE VALEZ-MITCHELL: “I thought ‘Eureka!’ Finally! After eight years somebody is standing up and saying we do not buy this ridiculous act…No, we’re not going to buy this insanity defense because obviously he knew right from wrong because he hid her. He threatened to kill her.” (HLN) Smart, now 23, took the stand as the prosecution’s star witness. MSNBC’s legal analyst Paul Callan says- after that- Mitchell didn’t stand a chance. PAUL CALLAN (Former prosecutor): “When you have a horrific crime like this one…I don’t think there’s sympathy that gets raised with any jury. So the chance of this insanity defense succeeding on this fact pattern I think was just never there.” A Fox News legal analyst adds, Mitchell’s “insane act” was convincing inside the courtroom- but his performance was inconsistent. MERCEDES COLWIN (Legal analyst): “It’s interesting because during testimony over the course of the trial, the marshals took the stand and said ‘He was lucid at various points in time.’ When he was coming into the courtroom he was whistling and singing but as soon as he was in the backroom outside the presence of the jury he sits down, takes a nap, puts earplugs in his ears. He was acting very sane outside of the courtroom. Fox’s Megyn Kelly wanted to know- was it necessary to force Smart to relive her nightmare in front of the jury? Legal analyst Arthur Aidala (I-dolla) says yes- because even though it doesn’t technically undermine Mitchell’s insanity defense- it tugged at the jurors’ hearts. ARTHUR AIDALA (Legal analyst): “When you have human beings who have hearts and souls and they want to do what they think is right. When you have such a sympathetic person like Elizabeth and such heinous crimes that were committee upon her, a lot of times one way or the other, jurors take the law into their own hands. They do what they think justice dictates and here obviously that’s what they did.” So what now? MSNBC talked to one defense attorney who says – appeal is possible, but at the end of the day, this case is closed. JOE TACOPINA (Defense attorney): “They will appeal because they have to. But from what I know about this trial, I don’t think there are any viable appellate issues. The jury recommended the maximum sentence for Mitchell- life in prison. His sentencing is set for May 25th, 2011. As for Smart, she’ll return to Paris, where she’s busy with mission work for the Mormon Church. JANE VALEZ- MITCHELL: “She is the ultimate example that it really doesn’t matter what cards you’re dealt, it’s how you play them….really what an inspiration to the entire world. Put your own problems in perspective and look how she has emerged triumphant from all of this.” Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy.

BY: MIRANDA WHEATLEY You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. America is overweight and a new study says our pets are too. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention released the new numbers saying our furry friends aren’t just overweight - they’re obese. The Wall Street Journal reports... “So shocking that more than 50 percent of cats and dogs are obese. New data out this week, I mean, again, showing that more than half of our pets the cats and dogs we have in our homes are either overweight or obese. People just don’t realize what this does to the pet’s body.” Or your pocketbook … According to The Wall Street Journal pet owners with policies from Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. spent $25 million on vet bills in 2010 for obesity related problems alone. A veterinarian tells Good Morning America treats are to blame... “Flabby felines and pudgy pooches, their huge size a funny phenomenon … Is this the worst it’s ever been for pets? Right now the pets are eating more treats than ever. So the treats are like the fast food for pets? Treats are the fast food, they’re high in calories.” So how can you tell if Fido is fat? - The Daily Mail says a study from Pfizer claims pet owner's perception is often skewed. 47 percent of veterinarians surveyed said their clientele was obese and only 17 percent of owners believed their pets were packing extra pounds. Director of clinical research at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, Steven Budsberg says pets have their owners to blame... "Obesity in pets is almost the equivalent of smoking in human medicine,’ … 'There's the high cost to people, and it's self-induced. I never met a German shepherd who could open the refrigerator or food bag and pour himself another bowl.’” But the Huffington Post offers up another solution: maybe owners wouldn’t over stuff their pets if the kibble came with clearer labels. “ food manufacturers, ... aren't required to list calories on their food labels unless the product advertises a low calorie content -- there is now a proposal to change this. Also, feeding directions are listed for the pet's ‘most demanding’ life stage, meaning the directions may lead to overfeeding by 25%.” But a blogger for The Pitch takes an optimistic outlook... “...maybe in our desire to get our dogs off the couch, we might just find ourselves finally addressing a more pressing obesity issue: the chubby hands on the other side of the leash. “ So will you be putting your pet on a diet?

BY JESSICA HORD ANCHOR JIM FLINK You're watching multisource US news analysis from Newsy “Can we all get along?” (KTTV) Rodney King made news with that famous line. Twenty years later this video captured in 1991 and its aftermath - is re-igniting police brutality debates. (Daily Mail) Now the conversation is a little different – it’s all about change. What’s changed, who’s changed, or has it changed? A San Francisco Chronicle blogger says ... not really. “The overall message that police send in this day and age of new media is that they are white men who hate black people ... Oscar Grant was killed by a BART police officer two years ago ... police departments need to change.” But a reporter for KTLA tows the official line -- and says the situation in L.A. HAS changed. “Outside is now a much different world compared to 1991 when L.A.P.D. officers were caught on tape beating King after he led them on a high speed chase.” “Current police chief Charlie Beck says his position now answers to the mayor along with civilian oversight in how the department now handles complaints. He believes an incident like this would not happen today.” “L.A.P.D. training director Luann Pannell says every officer at the academy learns someone is watching their every move.” So who’s watching? KTLA says anyone with a camera. The Los Angles Times agrees -- saying the ability to capture video is easier than ever. “Several recent cases show the power of questionable officer behavior going viral on the Web.” What about King? Has he changed? Many -- like TMZ -- point out King received a citation from police for driving with an expired license the day before the anniversary. CNN says King’s had several run-ins with the law since the incident but also says he’s a grandfather now, who recently appeared on “Celebrity Rehab.” The article quotes him as saying... “The trouble that they see me in is a part of my life that I'm working on.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY LIZ REED You're watching multisource US news analysis from Newsy A federal judge just gave kids the OK to “heart” boobies loud and proud -- The popular “I heart boobies” breast cancer awareness bracelets are banned in middle schools nationwide, but the ruling, which follows a freedom of speech lawsuit, may change everything. Reporter: “The girls had to sue under the First Amendment to wear these bracelets with that phrase at school.” Girl: “I’ve never encountered any disruptions at school.” Reporter: “So you think the school exaggerated a little?” Girl “I think so.” (Video: KYW) The judge supported the Pennsylvania middle schoolers, saying the phrase is not “lewd” or “obscene” and that the school never proved the bracelets were disruptive. But ABC-affiliate KNXV thinks the breast cancer cause is being overlooked in this case. Reporter 1: “A lot of people are concerned that this is trivializing the whole issue of breast cancer because you have young boys wearing these things, and they’re not wearing them because they are concerned about the cause, they’re wearing them because they think it’s funny.” Reporter 2: ”Right and some people think it’s not right to put “boobies,” or sexualize it, I think that’s the word that’s been used.” WNAC in Providence also wonders -- if kids can tote the word boobies, what other shenanigans will they try next? “I think it’s a bad idea, I really do. Because it opens up a can of worms. If you let them do that, then they’ll say they want to support, you know, causes to raise awareness for cancer of the testicles. You know what I mean? Then they start wearing, “I heart Cajones.” It’s silly!” But Care2 civil rights blog maintains the ruling will set a precedent for similar students’ rights cases and say school officials aren’t getting the big picture. “The ruling is a clear victory for free speech advocates and for those seeking a lighthearted way to raise awareness of breast health... while the administration may have a legitimate interest in creating and enforcing a dress code, this seems like a pretty clear case of administration over-reaction.” The judge’s ruling allows Easton Middle School students to bypass the ban for now, but the school board has said they want to appeal the case. Could boobies make it all the way to the Supreme Court? Weigh in on our comments section. Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for US video news in your stream.

BY ZHENG HWUANG CHIA ANCHOR JIM FLINK You're watching multisource US news analysis from Newsy Not too sure which is more embarrassing: Pooping on someone’s lawn or getting caught in the act of pooping on someone’s lawn? Atlanta Fox-affiliate WAGA has the classy story. “An Oregon Postal Worker apparently left much more than just the mail behind at one home along this route. A neighbor says he saw the mailman pull down his pants squat and then defecate right on the lawn across the street. He even snapped a picture of the crude act and took it to the mailman’s superiors.” Not to worry. CBS reports -- government inspectors are on it. “Postal Service is investigating. It sent a clean-up crew to sanitize the area. The mail carrier has been suspended without pay - pending an investigation.” But FOX News is asking viewers on Facebook - Did the mailman get what he deserved? Or should he had been punished more? Opinion 1: “I don’t think he should be punished, If you gotta go, you gotta go.” Opinion 2: “I would be more worried about the nosy neighbor. It is gross, but hey, he could have done it in the front yard.” Opinion 3: “I think taking pictures of the mailman in the act is even more disgusting then what the mailman did.” Oh yeah, the guy with the gotcha moment. To that, an anchor from ABC says - Really? Man: “This is how they respect our property? That's not right. And it's also a bio hazard.” Anchor: “That's your opinion. Where's he supposed to go? In his pith helmet? That's for pith, not for anything else. Now going postal means a whole new thing I guess.” Glitarazzi chimes in... “As American citizens ... we shouldn't have to take that crap!” While Gawker raises the question... “But are we overreacting to the tale of Portland's pooping mailman? If (the man) had waited a little longer, maybe FedEx would have come by. They're always cleaning up the postal service's messes. Zing!” Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for updates in your stream. Get more US video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy.

BY ALISON SCHUTZ AND TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR AUSTIN KIM You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. TSA’s patdowns and bag scans certainly didn’t detect a drug ring out of airports in Detroit, Houston, and Jamaica. That’s because the smugglers were on the inside. Detroit’s WDIV has details. “Investigators say the scheme was relatively simple. They say these baggage handlers would fill luggage with drugs and then put tags on them, tags like any other type you might see on a flight, with the name of a passenger on a flight from Jamaica to here to Detroit. When that plane landed here at Metro Detroit, baggage handlers like the people you see working down here, well they’d take the bag and get it by security and then sell the drugs out on the black market.” Federal agents arrested 12 people - including 10 current or former airport employees. And as Detroit’s WXYZ says--they could be looking at some major punishments. “Now depending on the actual charge, the penalties range from 5 years to life. The fines 250 thousand dollars to 10 million dollars. Agents say it’s a privilege to work here at the airport and be allowed in the most secure areas and if you break the law they will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.” A follow up report from the Detroit Free Press quotes two of the arrested men’s wives. They defend their husbands because despite being arrested in connection with $4 million dollars in drugs, they didn’t have a lot of luxuries. One woman says: "He drives a piece of crap car that I have to push in the street. ... He doesn't even have cable, for crying out loud." And the other argues: "This is not the man I've known for 10 years … There have been no red flags, no extra money for God's sake. We have used cars. He works mega overtime." Finally, a writer for Gather hopes this case -- dubbed “Operation Excess Baggage” will force regulators to reexamine their security policies. “Fortunately, the airline employees were part of a drug smuggling conspiracy, and they were not smuggling explosive devices on-board passenger flights -- at least, as far as we know. ... Federal officials should consider imposing mandatory pre-and post-flight inspections of baggage on all flights or at least, international flights.” Get more multisource US video news analysis from Newsy.
