>> one story among so many lawsuits continue to pile up against astroworld organizers and travis scott, who was performing as the disaster unfolded at least 18 civil suits now filed. nbc's jay gray is live in houston on our top story tonight. jay? >> reporter: the investigation here houston police continuing to interview witnesses and go through what are hours of videotape. they haven't given any update about the investigation. the last time they answered questions was saturday the chief posted a statement they said any information will come through their twitter account. firefighters here in houston they are talking the chief of police talking today on the "today" show and then later in the day, during an interview with cnn, he acknowledged that his firefighters that were staged outside of the venue had no radio contact with emergency medical teams hired by the venue
that were inside those seconds, those minutes do matter, according to emts we've talked with and they didn't have any communication. the firefighters ultimately rushing in and doing what they can there. we also know today that the security plan mapped out before the festival began, 56 pages in all had not one single page dealing with crowd surge, even though that has been an issue at travis scott concerts for years. you talked about the lawyers going inside the venue today, getting their first look on the way out, they did again say that scott does bear some blame in this, because he didn't stop the show. again, they're suing mostly for negligence, and again for inciting violence inside the concert venue. shep, a lot to work through. >> jay gray live on scene, thank you. the man who chaised down ahmaud arbery said he would have shot at arbery himself, that's
what he told an officer who responded to that scene according to a transcript of body cam video read in court today. february last year, greg mcmichael and his son, travis, chased arbery in their pickup truck while he was out jogging near his home because they say they suspected him of burglary it was travis who killed arbery with a shotgun but his father said in the moments right after, he would have done it himself. listen >> to be perfectly honest with you, if i could have got a shot at the guy, i'd have shot him himself because he was that violent a, and then we were interrupted again. >> the officer testified their interview kept getting interrupted by people approaching the crime scene. nbc news ron allen covering the trial in brunswick, georgia, tonight. ron? >> reporter: good evening, shep. yes, the prosecutors are trying to convince the jury that arbery was an innocent man gunned down intentionally and deliberately while the defense is saying he
was a suspicious character in a neighborhood on edge because of a spike in crime and today there was a lot of questioning of police officers who interviewed the defendants at the scene. the defendants maintain they were even trying to make a citizens arest and detain arbery here's how a prosecutor questioned one of the police officers who interviewed the defendant, william bryant. listen >> did greg mcmichael ever use the word burglary? >> no ma'am. >> did he use trespass >> no ma'am. >> did he ever say he was attempting to make a citizens arrest >> no ma'am. >> did he ever use the word arrest >> no ma'am. >> reporter: it was a contentious and emotional reprimanded saying be professional in the courtroom. arbery's at one point the judge reprimanded saying be professional in the courtroom. arbery's family is there every day watching and listening, hoping for justice here's a reflection that arbery's mother had after court. take a listen. >> it was very saddening, knowing that my son had just entered that same property
minutes before and then another guy came by this georgia power utility truck and went into that same property and that gentleman is still now alive today and my son is deceased. >> reporter: it's an open property under construction and the bottom line is for the arberys, arbery's family it's very difficult every day to be in court we expect more of a pitch battle again tomorrow between prosecutors and the defense as they try to paint this conflicting picture of why ahmaud arbery was shot and killed on the streets. >> ron allen at the courthouse, thanks legal analysis in a momenten ofe rittenhouse murder trial, the day seven of kyle rittenhouse murder trial, the 18-year-old charged with killing two people and wounding another last year in a demonstration in kenosha, wisconsin its prosecution's last witness a forensic pathologist, supported the argument that rittenhouse did not feel threatened when he
killed two people that night the doctor told jurors joseph rosenbaum, the first victim was falling or horizontal to the ground when the last two of four shots were fired, suggesting he wasn't a threat. >> the only way that the trajectories of the gunshot wounds to the right side of the head and the back make sense is if he's more horizontal to the ground and that is occurring at the time that the last two gunshot wounds are heard on the video. >> but some of the prosecution's other witnesses have seen to bolster the defense's argument that rittenhouse was acting in self-defense one testifying he saw rosenbaum lunge and another say rosenbaum was acting erratically nbc's gabe gutierrez, what can we expect? >> reporter: we're expecting to hear from an expert breaking ery nbc's gabe
down the time line of events here in this case as well as from an ex-police officer who might testify about the chaotic situation that night we heard today in court that she actually has covid and will likely testify virtually, but today the defense called its first witness, a man who says he went to the location of the demonstrations that night to help the owners of a car dealership protect that building and he says that he saw rittenhouse shortly after the gunfire. >> he repeats "i just shot someone" over and over and i believe at some point he did say we to shoot someone. >> now we expect the defense to keep making the argument that rittenhouse only fired on people who either confronted him or attacked him or lunged at him in some way but shep, another point today, the judge actually dismissed one of the seven charges against rittenhouse, a curfew violation because he said that the defense didn't --ainsta
curfew violation because he excuse me, the prosecution didn't adequately address it yo during its presentation. again, testimony resumes for the defense tomorrow, shep >> gabe gutierrez at the courthouse, thanks for legal analysis on both cases, david henderson's here, civil rights attorney, cnbc contributor. david, to the defense, working ri to establish a narrative about rittenhouse's actions, how are they doing so far? >> shep, they're being surprisingly effective develop a trial strategy this was an issue from the beginning of the case because you virtually have to put the police on trial because they knew rittenhouse was there and didn't say anything. they make it seem like there was a chaotic scene, a lot of confusion going on and rittenhouse got caught up with it i think they're doing an effective job. >> would you advise rittenhouse to take the stand?
>> normally that's what i say. if you're going into court and say you shot someone, you didn't want to or mean to, you have to explain that to the jury but if you look, in order to develop the argument for self-defense, you have to acknowledge rittenhouse did the shooting and the defense has developed that so well thus far i think it's a gamble whether or not they're going to put him on the stand. the only thing he can do to add to that, come across child-like on the stand as he does in the courtroom, that helps the defense more at this point they don't have to put him on the stand >> on the ahmaud arbery murder trial, we heard the georgia police officer's testimony that the defendant, mcmichael, never used the words "arrest, detain trying to make he was making a citizens arrest. does the lack of the statements, what doe or stresspass. remember the case they were trying to make he was making a citizens arrest. does the lack of the statements, what does that do? >> it puts in context, shep, that's not what was on their mind
you got to remember, trial work is storytelling and they have to develop this the reason police officers first wanted to carry body cameras was to collect evidence at the scene, when emotions are still high and people aren't thinking about what they were saying. when the mcmichaels weren't think being what they were saying they never mentioned anything about a citizen's arrest that's the point to be made. >> david henderson, thank you, sir. another big batch of subpoenas issued the investigation into the january 6th insurrection is intensifying tonight the new demand for testimony and what it reveals about the probe's focus. vaccination boosters for all adults pfizer officially asks for the green light from the fda, the impact on millions and millions, if the move is approved. and the race for governor in new jersey was much closer than the polls predicted. meet the pollster apologizing to both candidates for getting it so wrong

the final monmouth university poll margin did not provide an accurate picture of the state of the governor's race. so if you are a republican who believes the so if you are a republican who believes the polls cost ciattarelli an upset victory, feel free to vent. patrick murray is director of the polling institute. thank you. when you saw the results coming in on election night, so much closer than the polls, what was going through your mind? >> i was somewhat shocked because we have a pretty strong track record in going through your mind? >> i was somewhat shocked because we have a pretty strong track record in our polling. we had to look at what was going on i looked at it in 2016, we had some fixes, 2017, 2018, the polls were fine and we had that
miss in 2020 again and thels bee question is not whether polls quarterback right all the time they never can, particularly qu i'm taking a look at what have we contributed to the dialogue election polls because election polls are kind of guesses of an event that hasn't happened but that yesterday. >> i could do my own guessing. why do i need you at all >> right, so the question is, i'm taking a look at what have we contributed to the dialogue murphy was above 50% in job we ask a lot of questions in our polls about opinion of the candidates, about what issues are important to people, aboutug the mood of the electorate but
that gets swamped out by the horse race, who is ahead and behind by how many points. we feed to the media if we didn't use that question, if we didn't report that question at all and just reported all the other stuff that we had, indicated that phil murphy was above 50% in job approval rating but not by much the issue situation was shifting as it had in virginia that that could be an indicator. that probably wouldn't give people a better picture of what was going on and maybe that's what we should focus on. those are the areas polling works well >> after the 2016 thing and especially 2020 but after the 2016 thing, in my previous job on my previous program i stopped reporting on the horse race numbers. we didn't do them for years because we didn't know whether to trust them. the issues matters what is your job approval? those things seemed worthwhile but this horse race thing, should we all get together as the chattering class and say we're just not going to do this anymore because clearly it's not working? monmouth is very good and monmouth was terrible in new jersey >> right i agree with you i think we need to take responsibility of what we e hore contributes something that i'm really looking at seriously
going forward. >> what do you say, you're nots approv going to report the horse race numbers anymore? >> whether i ask them or report them >> whether you report them >> i think that's something that i'm really looking at seriously going forward. basically you throw down a challenge to the media saying here we have the candidates and approval ratings and top issues the voters tell us they're concerned about, what their mood is, what they think of the candidates when you report the numbers in the same way you report the horse race margin that seems to galvanize people around the sensational part of the election >> okay, how about this. as the one who does the i don't avery their reporting to the people, i'll report those issues if you'll say all right, we're not giving out the horse race anymore and convince the rest to do the sameample. >> one thing all of us can >> i'm on board. you'll have to call the rest i don't avery their numbers. that's the problem trying to get everybody else on board but i can only do what i'm responsible for and i think try to set an example.
>> one thing all of us can do is when we fail, admit it and try to figure out why and you did that and i loved it and that's why we had you on. thank you for coming appreciate your time and all the great work that your folks at monmouth do. >> i appreciate it, thanks a lot. >> all right here's a political question. does matthew mcconaughey want to be the next governor of texas? maybe he does. the actor and author told our andrew ross sorkin today he still is measuring whether he wants to venture into what he calls the great art of american politics venture into what he calls the great art of america >> america needs a new narrative. i think we can all agree on that we need to write the new lyrics we write and agree on those going forward so we need the storyteller. we're not much for legislation as i am for choice does that transfer to politics where you've got to administer, you're the ceo >> does it he admits he has a lot of questions about politics in general but he also says he's not just being a tease here when he refuses to comment either way. >> i'm studying trying to study what politics is, democracy is and can be, where we got off track, where are there ways to get back on track and asking ong
myself how myself how can i be most useful to the most amount of people but also to my family and to myself. >> sorkin also asked mcconaughey about vaccine mandates and vaccinating his own kids here's what he said. >> right now i'm not vaccinating mines. i'll tell you that >> you're not? >> i'm not vaccinating mine. i've been vaccinated my wife's been vaccinated. i couldn't mandate having to vaccinate younger kids i still want to find out more information. >> there's more to that, though, because he later clarified those comments by saying he was talking about only kids under the age of 12. remember, u.s. regulators just authorized covid vaccines for 5 to 11-year-olds just last week remember, in a not so scientific poll he's got some good numbersy concerni in texas
