6:32 pm
workers and migrants' rights. this is one of several may day protests throughout the bay. criminal charges have been dropped against the hunter accused of starting a massive yosemite fire. the reason: two key witnesses died unexpectedly. prosecutors say without them, they can't make their case that 33-year-old matthew emerald started the fire. he was indicted last year for the "rim" fire that burned for two months in 2013 causing $125 million in damage. some new safety rules approved today for trains that carry potentially explosive bakken crude. the train cars will need to have a thermal shell with thicker steel walls. this would help prevent them from rupturing in an accident. the train also also need to have electronically controlled brakes. as we have been reporting several bay area cities have been fighting to keep crude by rail out of their communities because of safety concerns. so we're on the eve of one of the biggest sporting events in years. manny pacquiao and floyd
