"today in the bay" starts now. and it is tuesday. good morning to you. thank you for joining us. i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's get straight to that forecast with rob this morning. another cool start. >> it is.

this morning. the european commission is ruling ireland gave illegal tax breaks to cupertino based apple. apple is now facing fines of more than $14 billion. eu ruled apple paid substantially lower taxes than other business necessary ireland must now recover losses. the most valuable company in the world apple was paying an effective corporate tax rate around 1%. ireland promises to appeal that ruling. business and tech reporter scott mcgrew is looking into this ruling. he'll have much more on it. the people of hayward have a new leader running their police department. the city's police chief diane stewart is on paid leaf as hayward pd conducts a personnel investigation. as for what prompted it, the police department says that is a confidential matter. but we do hope to hear from the city manager later today. as for stewart, she began officer for san jose police department in 1986 taking the top job in hayward in 2011.
in so doing, stewart became the first woman to serve in that role. captain mark coaler has been appointed acting police chief. former stanford swimmer brock turner is expected to be released from jail today. friday, i should say. comes after only serving half his six-month sentence. we're also getting new information about his trial approximately britain's guardian newspaper obtained transcripts reveal that turner laughed at the good samaritans who stopped the sexual assault. it happened on stanford's campus last year. turner faced up to ten years in prison but his sentence was reduced to six months. happening today. san jose leaders consider giving the police chief the powers to bypass state laws and put more officers on the streets for patrol. kris sanchez is live in san jose this morning. city leaders calling this a state of emergency. >> reporter: right. it's 234not exactly the kind of state of emergency we would see during a natural disaster or if the city was under siege, for example, the with protests but
what this does is releases police chief eddie garcia from some of the terms of the contract between the city and his police officers. this means that chief eddie garcia will be able to put more patrol officers on the streets. now, even then the chief has officers working mandatory overtime and there still are not enough officers for patrol. some officers have taken to sleeping in rvs on city property because the turn around time they say is just not enough time to get home. some of them live in the outlying areas in the bay area. this state of emergency means that the chief would be able to shift 47 officers into patrol. this affects the bidding that is allowed under the contract. that means officers can choose either to go to patrol or other assignments and often they choose other assignments. even with this the department is still understaffed for a city of a million people. >> we're going to do everything we can to move regulatory
obstacles or any other obstacle to enable him to do what he needs to do to keep the community safe. we all know this is just a band-aid. unless we get it approved in november by the voters all we'll have is band-aid solutions. >> reporter: the mayor mentioned measure d. that is a ballot measure that would undo all of the pension reform that voters approved just a few years ago and also puts into place protections for officers who are injured on the job. insiders say this has been a huge deterrent for attracting quality candidates to the department and, thus, dealing with the long-term understaffing solution. this is a vote that could happen as early as today. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. after is a months' long investigation a peninsula couple is facing felony charges accused of putting their dog in scolding liquid and not seeking treatment for the animal for weeks. that dog suffered third degree burns to 40% of his body.
investigators say that paul solder and shelby lugin of san bruno waited 12 days to take 2-year-old sprocket to a vet. the dog died ultimately from injuries. the couple says they accidentally spilled hot water into the dog's crate. it's a brazen attack in one of san francisco's most mop particular parks. eight to ten men chased a victim through delor rest park and beat and staped the man. this happened just after 6:00 p.m. on sunday night. that victim is still in critical condition. there have been no arrests for this attack. call sfpd. a lot of people taking their on stand on colin kaepernick's protests during the national anthem. it's sparking a dialogue. some niners fans wonder if he fits into the team's long term plans. as for bay area law enforcement they're disappointed with kaepernick's approach. >> are you going to be a person that actually goes out and does something about it or are you
going to be the proverbial monday morning quarterback and criticize and do nothing about it. >> j.d. nelson suggesting in may be a great opportunity for kaepernick to see what law enforcement really do. kaepernick's act of protests during the niners last preseason game is making national headlines. he insists he has no plans to alter his actions and will continue to sit until he says america makes some real change. >> certainly robbing a lot of people the wrong way. a big sporting event that's coming to the shark tank. we'll tell you about the celebrity athletes in attendance. and partly cloudy skies right now around san jose as we watch a chance of isolated thunder for parts of the north bay this morning. the latest in your forecast coming up. plus, you take a look over here. this a live look at the treasure island tunnel on the left. there was a crash there earlier this morning but all lanes are cleared and traffic is easy toward san francisco. we'll look at the rest of your commute coming up. new developers are moving
