inside until they got the ropes tethered down to make sure the car was secure and wouldn't fall in the hole. >> what was the family's reaction when they said you have to stay in the car? >> they were shocked that they would be told to stay inside a dangerous situation. >> reporter: rescuers wrapped ropes around the meters and to a tow truck and pulled the car to safety. >> wow. >> whoo! >> reporter: what caused the sinkhole? officials say there's a broken sewer line underground. that's one possibility. also, look closely and you can see that some roadwork was recently done on the same patch of street. >> that is something they look at. when was the road last worked on, was there any contractor work in the area? the age of the system. they look at all those factors when they begin to make their repairs. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> the sewer line under the street doesn't even stem from the 20th century. it was built in 1875. the district attorney of san francisco is now pressing criminal charges against two alameda county sheriff's deputies accused of beating a
suspect. one of the deputies is luis santamaria shown here with oakland mayor libby schaaf at a k-9 contest last year. he is a 14-year veteran of the sheriff's department. video from november shows him and deputy paul weiber hitting a suspect with a baton. stanislas petrov had a broken hand and other injuries. >> there are several charges. the alleged offenses happened in a san francisco alley following a high-speed chase. >> there's never a justification for working -- enforcing the law and going outside of the confines of the constitution. >> george gascon stays took six months to file charged because they had to get medical record and surveillance video. san francisco mayor ed lee is proposing 17.5 million dollars of new funding for a
police department reform program in response to recent incidents that called for the firing of chief suhr. it included text messages sent between some members of the police department. one of the san francisco protests may have led to injuries for four journalists. the injuries reportedly happened on friday during protests in support of the "frisco five" hunger strikers. hundreds of proceeds swarmed san francisco city hall and some damaged the building. the sheriff's department is looking into the report of those injuries. a bay area-based social network is described as a platform for racial profiling. when pushed for change the company responded. kpix 5's cate caugiran shows us how. >> folks were writing posts like black man driving by slowing making a u-turn, watch out. >> reporter: the ceo of nextdoor.com told me no more. >> we have designed a set of
features that will help our members understand the dangers of racial profiling and prevent them from making posts that can be seen as discriminatory. >> reporter: after complaints that next door was fostering racial profiling, the website said, it will change the way people post on it. so now if you want to report a crime or suspicious activity on next door.com, you will be required to fill out extra forms and questions in order to give a fair description. if you can't fill out the entire form, you will not be able to file a report. >> but what this form is now doing is forcing them into no longer being able to show their attitudes, they will have to do something different. >> reporter: they will spend more time on who they are reporting and why instead of making assumptions based on race. >> maybe this man was looking for his friend's house and now he is blasted his information and connecting him to a possible crime. >> reporter: next door serves nearly 100,000 communities.
but it took one east bay city, oakland, to change an entire website. >> it is unheard of i think for a technology company to change their platform in a way that actually in some ways makes it harder to report activities. but to do it for a reason that may be educating people. >> reporter: so far the site is testing out new requirements in all bay area counties and some east coast cities. next door plans to expand the changes to the full site this summer. cate caugiran, kpix 5. oakland is making sure its weeds and brush don't serve as a tinderbox should a fire spark. inspections start next week to prevent fires. officials say that the winter rain spurred the growth of plants that could spell disaster if a fire hit the oakland hills. firefighters say that inspections happen once a year but homeowners need to be in compliance every day. >> we still need to remember that, right? >> mm-hm. >> i still like the whole idea

tuesday. hena daniels, cbs news. >> before his big rally last night, bernie sanders was in california making stops in sacramento, stockton and the bay area. yesterday afternoon he popped into his campaign office in oakland even though it was an unannounced visit. volunteers had an inkling he might be stopping by. >> between the bay area and sacramento we knew that he is heading off on a plane to go to another big rally today. so we thought that at some point he was probably going to drop by. we didn't know that we were going to get what we got today so that was very exciting. >> his tour of the bay area continued with the senator catching coffee at sight glass in soma before heading to the "san francisco chronicle" to sit down with the paper's editorial board and lay out his policy proposals. it will be a big night for the warriors in oakland. a win over portland would advance them to the next round of the nba play-offs and there will be a ceremony honoring

people. an 80-year-old woman was killed. then arthur darosa allegedly crashed a stolen honda into a macy's and stabbed at least two people at the store before killing a 56-year-old at a mall restaurant. that's where on off duty deputy shot and killed him. >> there was a pregnant lady who came out and she was holding her stomach. right after her there was a guy who came out who was stabbed in the chest. >> it appears that but for the actions of the deputy sheriff, there may very well have been other victims. >> police are trying to find a motive for the attack. a proposal to legalize recreational marijuana could be on the california ballot in november. a new study finds that the number of deadly accidents blamed on driving while stoned is on the rise. betty yu reports. >> it was not on my radar. >> reporter: mary gaston's son was hit and killed at a bellevue, washington intersection by a stoned driver. >> he was laying in the middle of the intersection on the
ground. >> reporter: washington became one of the first states to legalize marijuana back in 2012. now a new study by aaa has found that the number of deadly accidents involving high drivers more than doubled between 2013 and 2014 from 8 to 17%. nationally there are more drivers using marijuana at night and on weekends. >> why do you drive around smoking? it's not a good idea. >> reporter: there is no test that can accurately determine the amount of marijuana in the bloodstream that leads to dangerous driving. >> biologically, cannabis and alcohol are very different. i think policymakers trying to do the right thing are trying to establish something like a .08 for cannabis. and there's just not science to support it. >> reporter: researchers instead encourage officers to detect drug impairment. the dashcam video shows a speeding driver cutting through traffic. another challenge to creating
drugged driving laws is that thc requires a blood test which can take two hours to be administered, longer than a roadside breathalyzer test. so results can be unreliable. in san jose, betty yu, kpix 5. east bay m.u.d. feels confident about the state of our drought. they have essentially decided it's over. this vantage point from chopper 5 shows why the agency feels certain. east bay m.u.d. says the san pablo reservoir and several others are 93% full and that's why the agency is calling off its water shortage emergency. it voted yesterday to declare water supply is at stage 0. east bay m.u.d. was at stage 4 critical back in april of last year. but with the positive change it's scene, they have us is pend expended the 25 first surcharge from customers and ending mandatory restrictions on water use. it starts july 1. 4:41. these new changes don't matter because roberta will still take

court saying visa's method isn't secure. walmart says visa lets customers use just a signature to verify transactions with chip debit cards. payments using p.i.n. numbers are more secure according to walmart and less expensive for the retailer to conduct. foster city-based visa hasn't commented on the matter. investigators are looking into those popular light-up kids shoes after one family's scary experience. the back seat of their car caught fire. they think the son's shoes and the lithium battery that powers them are to blame. >> i'm just glad that my son wasn't wearing it at the time. >> the smaller the wire, the more likelihood that you're going to have problems with the wire and fire. >> safety experts say that you should never leave the lightup shoes in the car and parents should check them often. the retailer payless who sold them says it's working with authorities. amazon is launching a new platform featuring user- generated videos. amazon direct video will
