6:00 pm
victims who happen to be black. i talked to two men today here in the neighborhood one white one black who called this very insensitive. >> reporter: the flyer reads, four dead criminals honored by the aa community. are you kidding me? >> four dead criminals all about african-americans is what it says. somebody is either awful racist or their opinion of blacks is really low because everybody gets shot is not a criminal. >> from what i heard from the parents and relatives of the ones that was killed they was pretty good kids i don't know but got mixed up in a stolen car and guns in the car and aulde that, i don't know nothing about that. >> reporter: nobody claimed responsibility for the message. most people saw it on the their windshield wadded it up and threw it away but here in hayes valley where gentrification brought multimillion home renovations but also has marginalized the historic black community, some see the flyer as an example of the new tensions.
6:01 pm
>> that's absolutely awful. that's one of the major problems is we are looking at victims at being at fault at looking for some way to justify the killings and i think a lot of people do that because if you look around the house, they are expensive and very, you know, pricy community there's a lot of folks around here that take their security seriously and pay a lot of money to try to secure themselves. so i think if they can give themselves some sort of backdrop or some story to finds these kids at fault it makes it easier for you to sleep at night. but when you wake up and you think about what happened and you think about the lives that were lost and the familiar there's were touched it doesn't last that false sense of security. the issue that we're all affected. we all have to be part of the solution. >> reporter: so you have gentrification. you have black and white tensions nationwide. ken, you can see why these messages were not helpful here. >> no. and hurtful in many cases for sure. joe vazquez in san francisco tonight, thank you, joe.

6:03 pm
"the interview." the bad guys do seem to be winning. >> the fbi has a difficult time recruiting people with those skills, different lifestyle for the most part. >> no kidding [ laughing and screaming ] >> reporter: spontaneous nerf gun wars? not in the fbi office. they use real ones which really hurt. dogs at work? only the bomb-sniffing ones. how many people want to work for the fbi? show of hands. [ laughter ] >> reporter: okay. tough sell. at the offices of if-we a successful startup building social media apps, workers would have to give up all the perks associated with high- tech, a big full kitchen, free snacks, free meals. >> it keeps everybody happy. keeps them productive and working and it's easy. we like to make everyone's life easy so they can grab a snack and keep at it. >> reporter: you think the fbi has that kind of attitude? >> if they want to hire in tech they need to have that type of attitude. >> reporter: there might be some takers. >> it would be interesting about the knowledge and the information that you have that you would know the other people
6:04 pm
wouldn't and you're protecting your country, there's something exciting and thrilling about that. >> reporter: that's the attitude the fbi is counting on. and there's another thing, and this is serious. it's a federal agency, you can't smoke pot because marijuana is illegal federally and the fbi knows that that might hold back some high-tech workers. in san francisco, mike sugerman, kpix 5. >> there you go. in san francisco, starting salary is around $70,000 annually and no stock options. the trial of a san francisco man charged with running an online black market began today in new york. ross albrecht is accused of running the site of silk road. it was used to buy drugs and other illegal goods. the prosecutor told the jurors ulbricht enabled more than 1 million drug deals earning about $18 million for himself but his lawyer says that he is not a drug dealer and was fooled into taking the fall.

6:06 pm
the booby-trapped was designed to send spikes through a foot. a firefighter responding to a fire on communications hill stepped into the camouflaged trap. he wasn't hurt. >> we see ourselves trying to provide care for these people whether it's putting out campfires out of control or providing medical care. to have to fear for our safety even beyond an individual attack but these passive attacks it's a whole different mindset. >> they scattered the problem didn't solve it. >> reporter: this is a homeless man who spent 10 months living at "the jungle." he said it was probably meant to safeguard someone's belongings from being stolen and since it happened at a camp where the homeless never used to live, it may be a direct result of the closing of the jungle. >> when we had the jungle people had walls and roofs and doors and they could lock 'em and they could keep their stuff safe. but now that that's been shut down, people are out in the middle of nowhere with no real hard walls that they can use to
6:07 pm
protect themselves. >> reporter: since the jungle was shut down last month, numerous new homeless camps have sprung up and neighbors on communications hill now have two things to worry about: the homeless moving into the area and booby traps near the trails where they hike. >> my concern is [ indiscernible ] now they are in my neighborhood. >> reporter: the homeless situation seems to be spreading into other parts of san jose that didn't used to see a big homeless population. firefighters say after they put out the fire up here on the hill, they quickly destroyed that booby-trap. live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. san jose police are looking for the public's help as they search for a bank robber. they have released photos of this man brandishing a gun as he robbed a u.s. bank branch. the bank is inside a safeway on hamilton avenue. it happened about 11:30 last friday. the man police are looking for

6:15 pm
things are safe when indeed they really aren't. >> middle school is where a lot of things start where they start to experiment. >> reporter: parents are not surprised to hear of the overdose even in a monitored area but it was a reminder to talk to children about not taking drugs even those that may seem safe. the school did notify parents yesterday and right now they are making a video presentation. they hope to show it to the students next week. in morgan hill, ann notarangelo, kpix 5. >> county health officials say this kind of abuse isn't new. it's just the latest drug that teens can easily get. more light railcars will be on the streets of san francisco by the end of next year. mayor lee and supervisors got a look at the new vehicles this morning. 40 in lrvs are in the latest order. supervisor weiner says they are desperately needed because san francisco grows more and more, people crowd on public transportation. >> if we don't provide the

required. >> the recession had a large impact on the training available within organizations. it's often times one of the first things to be cut in the operational budgets is training. and it's also one of the lowest things to come back. >> reporter: so more employers are now requiring more years of education and experience. now, researchers point out this may adjust along with the economy, but until then, it's more important than ever to get the most out of internships and education and gain experience before beginning a new job. >> you definitely needed to come in and be ready to work and ready to learn at a fast pace to keep up. that was julie watts reporting there. another reason for the decline in training, employees now move around between cities and jobs more than in the past so companies have less of an incentive to do the training u front. >> we could use more rain. >> that's not the biggest concern for some northern california farmers. why they say the freeze is what

6:46 pm
>> reporter: joe says it's too early to worry yet. there is still another month of cold temperatures before these sleepy trees wake up and bloom. >> well, we can, you know, all we can do is sit back and hope that, you know, we catch up on our hours. that's one thing about farming is we're strictly relying on mother nature and have no control over it. >> almonds rank third in california's top 10 cash crops. time to check in with paul deanno get a check of the weather. paul? >> sunshine. >> are the all almonds going to be smiling? >> it's sunny and mild during the day but at night especially up north we have freezeish yours and it has been chillier over the past couple nights because of the freeze issues. i love this picture this time of night. it's from the oakland airport looking over oakland and alameda then we see the bay bridge in the foreground. and the background we have the
