4:03 pm
staying in the race. remember, he has that deal that he struck with ted cruz, that he wouldn't compete here in indiana and in exchange cruz would not compete in oregon and new mexico. but some are saying it a bit unusual that kasich is home in ohio today instead of on the campaign trail looking ahead to the next primary. reporting live in indianapolis, marci gonzalez, abc 7 news. >> abc sech7 news was at pier 4 the voting machines were tested that will be used on june 7th. machines are being checked to make sure they are programmed and calibrated correctly. testing will continue until may 24th. the san francisco board of supervisors is considering exploring the issue of lowering the voting age. this comes following a series of low turnout elections. no decision is expected during tonight's hearing. on the move today, a group of hunger strikers and hundreds of supporters have hit the streets to protest police shootings. >> it's the 13th day the frisco
4:04 pm
five have been on the hunger strike. they're the ones in the wheelchairs in this video from sky7 hd. >> they marched from the mission station to city hall where abc 7 news reporter melanie woodrow is live tonight. >> reporter: still very much an active scene here. i want to step out of the way so you can see the steps of city hall. a lot of these folks who had marched from the mission police station are gathered outside, many chanting things like "fire chief suhr" and "where is ed lee"? this is really a fraction of the people that we saw earlier, maybe about a third of the people we saw make the march. they have signs with pictures of people who were shot and killed by police. we've seen some people actually wearing masks with those same images. we have video to show you from sky7 hd from earlier this afternoon. they gathered around 12:00, 1:00 p.m. outside the mission police station. they were surrounding the five individuals that have now become known as the frisco five.
4:05 pm
these are the hunger strikers said to be on their 13th day of not eating. they gathered around these individuals who were in wheelchairs and surrounded by medical professionals. and they began this approximately 1.3-mile journey here in the steps of city hall. there's some ground video to show you of what happened when they eventually got to city hall. the individuals that were in the wheelchairs were helped up the steps, helped up a ramp a eventually into an elevator and finally made their way to the place they had spent the entire day planning on going, which was outside of mayor lee's office. they gathered there. and when they did, they found out from a staffer that the mayor who was expected to meet with them today was in the bay view and here is how one of the members of the frisco five reacted. >> this mayor is a complete disgrace. if anybody doesn't see that, then they don't see what's going on. this guy comes and tries to do a back door meeting with us yesterday, doesn't even ask us how we're doing, then he tries
4:06 pm
to con us so we don't have the community pressure to come. ed lee is the biggest coward that i've ever seen in my life, and i think everybody in this room can attest to that. >> reporter: and the members of the frisco five have said that they will stay inside city hall until they have that meeting that they were promised to have today. we believe they're still inside right now. later on this evening, chief suhr is expected to be at a synagogue in -- asking the frisco five whether or not they were planning on potentially getting there to speak to him. the answer i got was possibly. >> melanie, thanks very much. a former san francisco police officer pleaded not guilty today to charges that he illegally accessed confidential dmv and criminal offender information. prosecutors charged jason lai with two misdemeanors. it surfaced during a rape investigation into lai.
4:07 pm
prosecutors say there was insufficient evidence to charge him with rape. lai's former superior, curtis lue, today also pleaded not guilty to felony charges that he obstructed the rape investigation and filed a false police report. the warriors are back in action tonight, game two versus the blazers. once again, they're going to be without steph curry. >> yes. larry biel is live in oracle arena. hi, larry. >> reporter: hi, dan, hi ama. no steph curry again today. steph started 79 of 82 games in the regular season but since the playoffs began 2 1/2 weeks ago, all we've really talked about are the ankle injury and the knee injury. and it's been all injury report updates as far as the steph curry situation is concerned. again, steph not going to play tonight. he really, really wants to play in game three on saturday. now, today the warriors put up a big blue curtain for privacy so
4:08 pm
steph could test the knee without the prying eyes and lenses of the media watching his every move. tonight at 5:45, coach steve kerr will address the media. we'll ask about steph's status and the workout today. later in the week, curry is expected to participate in five on five drills to see if he can play saturday. there's a great debate as to whether they should really bring curry back the hall of famer reggie miller said today he would not play steph curry until the warriors lose a game to portland and just keep resting him. but steph wants to get out there. it was the same story in the series with the rockets. the question for kerr and the warriors management is, how many times do you keep telling your star player and the guy who will be the two-time mvp of the league, ah, sorry, we're not going to play you again, but it's for your own good? this is diend of the ongoing dilemma. very fine line to walk if you're steve kerr. but if the warriors beat the blazers again tonight, there's even less urgency up 2-0 to even test him out on saturday, maybe
4:09 pm
give him another 48 hours and see if he comes back for game four at 100%. lots more coming up from oracle, including the other side of the story, which is the star guard for the blazers and some oakland fans who will be here at the arena rooting for him. that's ahead. for now, back to you. >> great stuff, larry. it could be a traffic mess tonight, a's and warriors are bothplaying. >> should be fun. let's turn to the weather. getter for some more rain. >> you see the clouds out there. spencer christian is here with our accuweather update. >> ama and dan, it's moving in our direction slowly as you can see. the clouds are thickening. here is a look at live doppler 7 hd. the skies are bright in some places but clouds building up. here is the view from sutro tower, currently 61 in the bay area, 68 in oakland. san jose 72, only 55 at half
