CVS new policy requires employees to get health screenings or pay fine

CVS is drawing a lot of criticism over its new policy requiring its employees to report their weight, and body fat and glucose levels - or pay $600 dollars a year.

The national drugstore calls it motivation, while critics call it an invasion of privacy.

"I've seen way too many employers that use employee health information to discriminate against them, so even if it's couched as "we're not gonna look at your health information now, there's really no way to be sure of that," Dr. Deoborah Peel of the Patient Privacy Rights said.

OutFront tonight: Dr. Deborah Peel, Founder and Chair of Patient Privacy Rights and CNN Contributor Reihan Salam.

Massacre averted on UCF campus: Gunnman had a checklist for shooting

Chilling new video tonight inside the dorm room of the former University of Central Florida student who committed suicide yesterday and left behind a bag full of explosives and weapons. 

UCF police chief, Richard Beary, who was on the show Monday says the evidence at the crime scene shows that 30 year-old James Oliver Seevakumaran had enough ammunition for a massacre. 

"I don't think that you acquire two 110-round magazines and numerous 22-capacity magazines and that you purchase 1000 rounds of ammunition and that you purchase the 45 ammunition, I don't think you just do that as a joke," Beary said.

Fortunately, Seevakumaran's roommate called 9-11, and may have prevented mass casualties on the Florida campus.

Ed Lavandera has the latest.
