"by the way, if anyone feels they can't breathe or their lives matters, i will be at the movies offduty carrying my gun." he said those tweets were not aimed at black live matter supporters but specific people who targeted him, threatened him
and his family. an investigation confirmed those were threats that were legitimate, but officer white still wishes he could take it all back. >> i never wanted to make excuses for my actions. they were inappropriate. no doubt about that. if i could take it back, i would. the only thing i can do is apologize for them. >> again, officer white says he wants his apology to set a precedent that it's okay for people to own up when they make mistakes. we'll find out how this apology is resonating with the community and city official whose will decide today whether to appeal officer white's rehiring. he was fired in october, rehired in february. officer white had more to say. you can see the full interview on nbcbayarea.com. san francisco leaders said to consider a plan that would

considered to be the safest investment, not just on planet earth but perhaps since the invention of money itself. trump now says he realizes those bonds are sacred. last night mr. trump did suggest the u.s. could buy back bonds if interest rates went up, like paying off a credit card early, but in order to do that, americans would need to borrow the money, presumably at the same interest rates it was going to try to avoid in the first place. silicon valley billionaire is going to support trump as the republican convention. keel made his billions creating paypal. he has not commented. good morning, landon. >> good morning. markets could be trending higher today. stocks ending mixed on monday as a drop in oil prices weighed on

in some kind of stage of drought. >> i still think if we have our conservative habits, it's always a good thing. >> some of these practices, let's keep them in place anyway. el nino is kind of hit or miss in terms of how much water we see. >> and whe we consider we had an average amount of rain and may be heading into la nina in the fall which could have the opposite effect with the lack of rain. they should keep conserving. >> good game plan. we are not going to have rain in this forecast. temperatures are going to be warming up over the next few days. looking at highs in the 80s inland. as we start out this morning looking live at oracle arena, we will have clouds overhead starting out the day. we will see clouds widespread across the bay area. temperatures that are about average. 53 in the east bay and san francisco. peninsula is at 7:00. as we drop in on the south bay,
