it is very hard to have your life being debated somewhat extrapolated or theoretically with judges. >> right nouw at 11:00, the stage is set for the final answer on gay marriage as the supreme court steps up and takes on a history-making case. good evening, everybody, i'm jessica aguirre. >> and i'm raj mathai.
jeannele elliot is going to join us from san francisco where the debate started nearly 11 years ago, and this is a pivotal night. >> yes, the debate started in 2004 right here in city hall when san francisco started to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples, and now that the u.s. supreme court has decided to weigh in, an end to the debate may weigh in. >> a day that we have been dreaming about for over a decade. >> reporter: the supreme court must decide if same-sex marriages are to be recognized. they were among the first couples in the nation to be married at san francisco city hall in 2004. they say it is a magical feeling that every couple deserves.
>> and to have that basic human freedom to marry the person that you love and experience your government treating you equally. >> reporter: 36 states recognize same-sex marriage and louis and gaffney traveled to a state that does not recognize their union, then a hospital visit could be complicated. >> we are legally married in california, but if we go the mount rushmore and one of us is injured, we don't have the security that in south dakota we are not married and we could be denied basic rights that everyone else takes for granted. >> reporter: district attorney dennis herrera says that his office is going to file a brief. >> i am very proud that san francisco was there in the beginning ashs and that we played a small part in spurring a political debate and legal decisions to bring equality to people across the kuncountry.
>> reporter: the national organization for equality is going to weigh in as well. we call on the supreme court the stand for the proposition that men and women of goodwill across this can landland have the right to participate in marriage. nobody can predict how the supreme court will rule but some justices such as ruth bader ginsberg have presided over same sex weddings. the arguments are expected in april and a decision is expected in june. a lot of things have changed since 2012 the last time the supreme court took on the issue. in that time it has led to now
where only 14 states ban same-sex marriages. and now we have more on an investigation, peggy, with the area around harvey park? >> this area is described as a nice neighborhood and certainly not where you would see a man at 2:00 in the afternoon clutching a knife. witnesses reported the man approaching two young kids with the knife, but the freemont police are not confirming that. what they will say is that three veteran officers rushed to the scene, and quickly encountered the suspect at the outskirts of the park and then one officer fired a taserr and another fired the gun. within ten minutes of the police arriving at the park, the man was dead with the knife in his hand, and now the police are questioning if if any quid kids were involved. >> our investigation is saying that there may not have been
kids or young adults or someone who looked young. >> i didn't know anything was going on. i came around the corner, but it is shocking because it is not normal here in this area. >> as you heard from that man, the neighbors say that this thing does not happen around harvey park and they only had one homicide last year and no officer-involved shootings if two years. the investigation continues tonight, and we will continue to follow the story on the website nbc bay area.com. oakland police are gearing up for 96 hours of action. protesters took over b.a.r.t. stations in downtown san francisco this morning and lasted for about two hours. some demonstrators stopped bart trains by blocking the doors from closing. several protests for blacks' rights are planned through the martin luther holiday. kimberly terry is in oakland

trials for police violence against black individuals. >> this is only going to grow. >> reporter: and the fact that it coincides with the martin luther king holiday is no coincidence. >> we believe that this violence against the police or the political establishment must be taken on directly and headon. >> reporter: is so-called 96 hours of action start ded this morning interrupting b.a.r.t. service at the embarcadero and several other areas. b.a.r.t. says they support the cause, but they don't like the way they are going about giving their message. >> i have to commute during the week and work on the weekend. >> all lives matter, but at the same time we should get together and collectively as a unit figure out something that is more productive than sitting

rainfall. you can see the general storm track that we have been watching over to the last couple of days is just off to the north. a few hundred miles separating us from the heavy rainfall and really next to nothing. you can see from the doppler not a lot of returns here from the south bay to the northern bay. but you can see that it does not look like we will have any drizzle here to the overnight hours and possible in the the north pay and east bay and peninsula. looking outside now, you will see the temperatures in the 50s, and varying clouds with mist and some drizzle in the east bay, san francisco and north bay. and now as we head out tomorrow morning, we won't see the fluctuations, but the cloud cover in play and that is go ging to keep the temperatures to the current levels and the upper 40s and low 50s and keep the chance of drizzle in the east bay and san francisco and north bay. the reason why we are not getting any rainfall is that some of you may be asking that the storm track is so close, and why not any of the rainfall
coming our way? it is because of the pressure off to the south. it is buffering a track to the south, and it is sitting there, and every single type it is trying the to move to the south, high pressure is bouncing it back another direction, and so with that staying in the place this weekend, we will have the clouds and the possibility of a few raindrops, but mot the chance of any heavy rainfall. so the climate forecast as we head to saturday is going to illustrate what we are going to be seeing here. in sbz, dry condition, and partly sunny to partly cloudy skies. some sun breaks across morgan hill and some of the warmer temperatures from 68 to 72 and los gatos to the 68 and now, the peninsula is closest to the storm system off of the coastline will continue to see some clouds moving in for palo alto to 76 ash and the possibility of a few drops if pacifica. we will also see the chances of isolated drizzle from san francisco to the marina to
downtown and from the north bay and the east bay, we will see the spotty drizzle from napa to santa rosa to mill valley, and trivalley dry and temperatures in the upper 60s. if you are doing anything this weekend, know that the weather is to the tri valley where we will have a chance of the drizzle, and nothing big in terms of the rainfall. you may get a few drops from time to time. if you are doing anything monday, and heading out to the martin luther king jr. pa real raid, expect clouds and sun and temperatures in the 50s. >> thank you jeff. dress up time for adult and it is a furry story here. the unique convention taking over in san jose. >> yes, they are back. and also jimmy. >> hey guys brian williams is my guest. and also we will have the thank you notes. you have to watch.
