your realtime captioner is linda marie macdonald. mayor quan, can we speak with you before you leave? >> oakland's mayor races from our cameras. why her plan to meet with "occupy" protestors never happened. a woman choked unconscious a santa clara campus on high alert this morning what police want to know about this man. good morning, what day is it, folks? >> friday!! >> that was pretty good. [ laughter ] >> around 6:58 we'll get right. >> around. it's october 28. just so you know, i'm frank mallicoat. >> and i'm grace lee. it is 4:30 in the morning on -- >> friday. >> yeah. >> yes! and i'm very excited.
looks like a fantastic day. i mean, the weather yesterday was perfect. today probably a little better as we are going to see more sunshine. starting out chilly in spots again. 37 in the napa valley, 41 santa rosa, clear skies just about everywhere you go. we'll have a complete look at your weekend forecast in a moment. right now let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. everything looks quiet heading into san francisco on the bay bridge. critical mass tonight. more coming up. >> happy friday. the weekend is here. 4:31. shifting in a damage control that's what the mayor of oakland attempts but fails. the tents are back. she is waiting for the occupiers to call her. kristy seifkin in oakland with what protestors are planning next. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, mayor jean quan still has
not spoken face to face to protestors. she had planned to come to the general assembly meeting that was going to be held inside the "occupy" camp. but she was told that she would have to come as a community member so she decided not to attend and instead held a press conference on her own. it was at that press conference that she was joined by the new chief of police. at that press conference, both turned down the opportunity earlier to attend the meeting. jordan said he thought he wouldn't be welcomed there. during the conference she apologized for tuesday night's events and that was of course when police raided the plaza and used tear gas multiple times in addition to using rubber bullets. she also laid down the law for what she expects from protestors who stay in the plaza. quan made a statement, a written statement, that included these four points. these requests. the first is she said, we need to have direct communication between city staff and "occupy oakland" representatives. second, we need to maintain health and safety conditions wherever you gather. third, we need to you allow our safety employees to have access
when there is an emergency. and then fourth, we are asking that you not camp overnight. >> oakland is known for being a progressive city. uhm....... i'm really saddened by, uhm, what people think we are. we are clearly a city that has a lot of homeless and unemployed people, one of the highest rates of foreclosure in california. >> obviously, at this point her fourth request isn't being met. we do see campers out here back in the plaza this morning. it remains to be seen if they will comply with the other three requests. quan didn't want to say much beyond what she listed in the four bullet points. or reporter robert lyles attempted to speak with her and ask her questions after the press conference. he asked to speak with her at the car. she kept her car windows rolled up and just drove away. still fingers being pointed at mayor quan. a lot of questions about how she will continue to collaborate with the protestors and also how she will continue
to work with police. chief jordan was given mixed messages in the week, first told to raid the plaza, then told to allow the protesters to return. it's been all of the drama that's happened in the past week that's garnered a lot of national attention and in fact, the "occupy" protestors expect to have a very special visitor later this afternoon, documentary filmmaker michael moore tweeting earlier yesterday that he understands the frustration of the protestors and expects to join them later on today. back to you. >> hey, kristy, you have been covering this for a few days now. what is the sense do you get from protestors with the mayor kind of going back and forth and now kind of being in the middle of what they can do, how long they can stay at frank ogawa plaza? >> reporter: it seemed they are open to the communication yesterday. earlier they wanted quan and jordan to come just as members of the community not as city officials. there is still that desire to have a dialogue. the focus right now though
really seems to be pretty peaceful. it's quiet this morning. just over my shoulder there is a vigil that's been set up for the iraqi war veteran hit in the head with what supposedly something that the police fired during that raid or when they fired the tear gas so i think the desire is still there for the communication but certainly questioning the mayor's decisions since she hasn't spoken to them face to face yet. >> thank you, kristy. speaking of that iraq war veteran, mayor quan visited him after he was critically injured at the protest. she shook his hand and told 24- year-old scott olsen about what happened to him. a vigil was held from him at "occupy oakland" last night. he suffered a skull fracture when hilt by a tear gas canister or some projectile. he is now listed in fair condition. >> he actually can communicate, make signs, write. he clearly understands what we're saying but is still having trouble articulating
words. i anticipate that that will improve. >> it's not just in oakland there. were vigils for olsen last night at other occupy catches across the cubry. and "anonymous" has posted a get well video for olsen. it is 4:36. right now, the "occupy" camp here in san francisco is still crowded with concerns about a possible police raid now on hold. officers were standing by on wednesday night but by early yesterday morning, it was clear a raid would not happen. san francisco authorities said a raid was not planned but officers were on standby in case there was trouble from a rumored merge with the oakland group. >> again, i think that it's not a monolith we're dealing with. i think people did have the experience of what happened in oakland. >> san francisco mayor ed lee would not rule out a future police raid if the continued camping presents a danger to public health and safety. a majority of people in san francisco think police have maintained control of the
protest. that's according to a cbs 5 poll. less than a quarter believe police have lost control. when asked about the police department's use of force, nearly half told surveyusa it has been at an appropriate level. the rest were divided evenly between not forceful enough and too forceful. 4:37 now. this morning, the search is on for the person who attacked a female student at de anza college. sheriff's deputies in santa clara county just released this sketch of the suspect. he is about 5'4" tall with light brown hair. the victim says he asked her for assistance as she was walking on campus yesterday morning. and then he grabbed and choked her until she passed out. we'll have live report on this in just about 30 minutes. a state report finds a disturbing number of sex offenders living or working at homes with foster children. the california state auditor found that the addresses of more than 1,000 registered sex offenders matched the locations
of licensed foster care facilities. even more surprising, the department says it told social services to cross-check the database three years ago but that never happened. >> something that's easy enough and just adds to ensuring that the kids are going to be placed in safe environments. >> social services says it does not believe cross-checking the database reliable. eight foster care facilities are now under investigation including two in vallejo. the l.a. dodgers say bryan stow may be partially responsible for the attack that almost killed him. the dodgers' lawyers telling espn a jury will probably put some of the blame on the injured giants fan himself. the lawyers depending the team against a lawsuit by stow's family. the family accuses the dodgers of not doing enough to prevent violence at games. the lawyer said, "i have been doing these cases for 23 years and i have never seen one yet in which it didn't take at least two people to tango." a suit is filed to try to stop the federal government's
crackdown on medical marijuana producers here in california. the oakland-based americans for safe access claim the justice department is violating the tenth amendment by going after medical marijuana and not all marijuana. this month federal official stepped up efforts to shut down large-scale pot providers. 4739 now. this morning there will be milestone for the bay bridge construction project. >> the self-anchored suspension span is set to be completed. crews will be putting that 28th and final piece in place. it is the largest structure of its kind in the world. in the world! [ laughter ] >> a ceremony is planned for 10 a.m. at the site of the final piece on yerba buena island. >> they have been quiet will go getting it done. >> you see a little more as you go across. >> it's beautiful. well, you know, there's nothing quiet about lawrence karnow because estefantastic today. >> i am feeling good today, guys! [ laughter ] >> i bet you are. it's friday.
>> it is friday! it's looking good around the bay area today. we're planning on lots of sunshine again today and i'll tell you what... i think the weekend looks fantastic, too. outside right now, you can see the clouds staying off the coastline keeping you clear even at the beaches. so so the temperatures are dropping off. again, it's a chilly start to some spots especially in the north bay. 37 degrees right now in napa, 41 in santa rosa, 46 degrees in livermore, and 52 in san jose. i think by the afternoon, we're enjoying some sunshine and the temperatures warming up maybe even a couple degrees warmer than yesterday, about 7 degrees in santa rosa, 77 in san jose, 78 in santa rosa, 67 sunshine in pacifica and 71 in san francisco. the weekend looking good. high pressure in control, lots of sunshine through saturday. maybe slight cooling on sunday. on monday, on halloween, couple clouds move through and yes, elizabeth, there is a little rain in the forecast just like you wanted. >> on halloween? >> not on halloween. >> on saturday? which day? i wasn't paying attention. >> thursday. next thursday. >> who cares about thursday.
[ laughter ] >> thank you, lawrence. let's go outside. most it's overnight roadwork going on right now including in san jose. northbound and southbound 880 between 280 and old bayshore highway still out there blocking some lanes. but coming out of downtown san jose, things look great on 280. guadalupe parkway is nice and quiet. you will find roadwork still on the dumbarton bridge. that question mark means they have picked it up a little ahead of schedule. no roadwork in either direction of the san mateo bridge 92 crewing along. full ramp closure in vallejo eastbound 80 to columbus parkway, highway 37. that ramp is going to be shut down until about 8:00 this morning so use another detour. in the meantime, one more live look outside. here's life look at the golden gate bridge. free-flowing, no issues, no problems. nada. pretty quiet cross the golden gate bridge. that is traffic. back to you. >> i bet next wednesday you're going to care about thursday. >> that's true. if it is in the morning commute, it's usually a little bit of an issue. >> all right. thanks. 4:41 now. some new warnings about popular
birth control brands. >> and the world's biggest pc maker has a change of heart. also ahead... >> agents that have specialized training and years and years of training to get to the level where they're at. >> a secret agent steps out of the shadows. why he is blowing his own cover in order to warn californians. need a little help with an errand? there's an app for that. the tool that lets you name your price for just about anything. that and much more when grace and i come back. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
