it's a dangerous love affair. i don't know if that was part of the song they were going to use, but still, it is just completely the wrong tone for this. >> reporter: rihanna's performance and a planned comedy sketch were gotten rid of in favor of nora o' donnel interviewing roger goodell. 16 female senators sent a letter to commissioner goodell today demanding a zero tolerance poll say for players accused of domestic violence. >> our society has too much of it and we just can't allow it. so we will see what the nfl does. >> reporter: democrats from the house judicial committee demanded harsher punishment from the nfl. >> i wish women everywhere would boycott the games. i think if women quit going to

police tell us the family member was pushing the little boy in his stroller when he reached into his pocket and his gun fell out and it went off and hit the one-year-old. we could know as soon as tomorrow whether a mountain lion killed by wildlife officials is is the same one that attacked a small boy in the south bay. they shot the mountain lion miles from where the attack happened on a cupertino trail. dna testing will tell for sure. meanwhile, the boy is getting rabies treatments as a precaution. president obama has declared a major disaster in the wake of the napa earthquake. the formal declaration covers napa and solano counties. it could mean as much as an $87 million in help. here in the bay area, the nation tonight marking the 13th anniversary of the 9/11
attacks. twin beams of light shining into the sky above new york's ground zero. they are symbols of what was lost. here in the bay area. pleasanton and livermore held a joint ceremony at the flag pole outside of fire station number 1 in pleasanton. the service included the ceremonial ringing of the bell in honor of those who died in the line of duty. also tonight, david martin shows us the u.s. military was not wasting any time carrying out the president's strategy for defeating islamic terrorists. >> they flew only two air strikes tonight knocking out isis machine guns as gearing up for more aggressive attacks. until now, the strikes have been confined to five locations in iraq. all isis forces across northern and western iraq including the leaders will become potential targets. the mission is to degrade isis and help iraqi ground forces take back lost territory.
u.s. army will set up expanded headquarters in baghdad and irbil. 475 more american troops will arrive in iraq in the coming days bringing the total to 1600. armed reconnaissance planes will be in urbil. in recent weeks, isis fighters have taken over entire bases compliant with ammunition dumps that once belonged to the syrian air force and could become targets for american air strikes. to destroy isis will require putting troops in syria which the pentagon has ruled out. the pentagon is asking congress for legal authority and $500 million to begin training a syrian opposition force to do battle against isis. saudi arabia has agreed to let
the training take place on its territory. pentagon officials say the new air campaign inside iraq could begin within days. air strikes in syria are more likely weeks away. david martin, cbs news, the pentagon. a central valley school is having to explain why they banned a girl from wearing a 9/11 shirt. the girl wanted to pay tribute to those who died in the world trade center but she was told to change into her uniform. a district spokesperson says the school understands the significance of the date, but it cannot make exceptions for free dress. >> it is very much an important part of the academic process, but we need to enforce the dress code policy. once you make exceptions, it is hard to draw the line. >> the school says students are allowed to wear clothes outside of the uniform on free dress days. 9/11 is not one of them. this caught our attention tonight. why does castro valley high
school need a $14,000 espresso machine? christin ayers did a little digging. >> reporter: tonight, the castro valley school board said this is an investment. it is made by sharer usa which makes machines like these. on facebook, people lashed out calling the purchase wasteful. one commenter said there is no good explanation for a $14,000 machine bought with district money, period. but after tonight's meeting, the administrators explained the machine will allow the district to start catering us own events to bring in more revenue. one board member staid not only will this save money, it will save an important job at the school. >> we we have a 4.5 hour position in the child nutrition department we are working hard to keep that position. and in order to do that, this is an opportunity to keep that position. otherwise, we would be looking at eliminating that position in the budget. >> reporter: the board approved
the purchase of the espresso machine unanimously tonight. the money comes out of a separate fund. in castro valley, christin ayers, kpix5. mystery men repelling out of the sky over big pot grows in northern california. only on 5, we find out who are they? >> and what was the nsa so desperate to get from yahoo that it threatened to fine it more than a million dollars a week? completeness of any transcription, or for any errors in transcription. closed captioning provided by cbs sports division
iceberg. in mendocino county, there have been dozens of raids and strange men coming down from the sky. >> reporter: a chopper in, they are heavily armed, they chop down the pot plants. some of them are cops and others are from a private security company. they dress in combat camouflage. some of them hide their faces. this summer a group in mendocino county flew in missions to eradicate marijuana. they are not cops. they work for a security company. >> last year, we arrested two individuals in mendocino county for trespass, identified ourself and they had weapons. >> reporter: according to their promotional poster, they work with law enforcement. that is why susan schindler suspected the posse when her garden was hit last month. >> they took a hacksaw and sliced right through the stem. >> reporter: susan says the armed men in camouflage who
dropped into her garden refused to identify themselves. >> there was no paper work, no warrants, no inventories left of what they took. it's all gone. it's all gone. >> reporter: she says she is following tall county regulations. 25 plants per parcel. the legal limit in mendocino county and the strain of cannabis she grows has no street value. it is medicinal. >> the irony is this whole garden that was destroyed was not a garden that would get you high. >> reporter: the president paul trueet turned down an interview. >> we don't hire private security guard to do our job. >> reporter: tom almond says his deputies have conducted recent raids including several in susan's area on the day she was hit. but he says his guys wear badges and clearly identify
themselves. >> are people seeing things or is it the fact you guy haves been doing raids and people have been mistaken? you tell me. >> i think there are some people becoming paranoid this time of year. >> reporter: susan has another theory. whoever is behind it, she thinks she is an easy target. >> they try to find places where they saw nobody or they thought they wouldn't be confronted with guns. >> reporter: so it is still unclear who exactly is raiding the pot farms. that security company say they are staying on the private property of the people who hire them and that is perfectly legal. >> it is really amazing. i understand a lot of the pot growers are worried naturally. there might be criminals behind some of this. and how do you control that? >> yeah, they don't know. so there's a lot of unknown and they actually had a meeting with the sheriff recently. they said what is going on here? who are these people?
they are not leaving paper work. in one case, he pointed his badge and it just said police on it shy don't know. could it be drug cartels? could it be the feds? the feds say they are in the area but always clearly identify themselves. >> and this is the harvest season so it is critical. >> exactly. >> thanks. >> thanks joe. well tonight, yahoo has released more than 1,000 pages of secret documents about the government surveillance program. now we know the nsa threatened to fine yahoo $250,000 a day if it didn't turn over data. this was in 2008. now yahoo refused and fought the request. eventually, a judge ordered yahoo to turn over the information. but a company did not have to pay the fine. well tonight, facebook is apologizing for blocking a photo of a baby who needed a heart transplant. this photo got flagged for
