6:05 pm
>> reporter: that's right. but it's also interesting. when we drilled down a bit and went to the neighborhood to find out that he might have even more problems that have been the subject of the media lately. here's the story. >> he needs to go. >> reporter: why? >> um, too much bull going on. >> most of the problems are created by other individuals. i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. >> reporter: those sentiments reflect the split that the a new kpix/surveyusa poll found among residents when it comes to the future of police chief greg suhr. >> we don't governor by the polls but at the same time i'm sense -- we don't govern by the polls but at the same time i'm sensitive to what people think. >> reporter: 42% approve of the chief's performance in the wake of the mario woods shooting and the racial text scandals but 36% disapprove. >> i only hear the outrage in the streets. >> reporter: his biggest support comes from whites and asians. but that support drops among

6:07 pm
he doesn't think anybody else is ready to take over for him. it's interesting to note that while 50% might not sound that impressive, compared to some polls i have seen on politicians in san francisco, actually, he is doing better than most. at the hall of justice in san francisco, phil matier, kpix 5. oakland police are addressing the sexual misconduct investigation rocking their department. two of four officers allegedly involved resigned. they had been on administrative leave. >> this department has taken a quick and aggressive action, whether an officer resigns or not the investigation is going to continue. and we're going to see where that investigation leads. >> by resigning they avoid participating in the investigation. it's unclear whether they will face criminal charges. a shooting in the east bay. pittsburg police officers opened fire and shot three people instead of one.

neighborhood... suffering fa subtle form of discriminati. kpix 5 reporter joe vazquezs new at 6:00 we found out students in one bay area neighborhood suffering from a subtle form of discrimination. kpix 5's reporter joe vazquez says it happens when their teachers call out sick. [ sirens ] >> they are getting more and less. >> reporter: many of the children in the historically black bayview section of san francisco are already dealing with poverty and violence in their neighborhoods. now san francisco unified school district officials say the schools here are also struggling with finding enough substitute teachers. >> i don't feel that it's right. if you want to teach the kids education, it shouldn't matter where you teach 'em at. >> reporter: in the last two years, substitute teachers only have been accepting daily job offers at public schools in the bayview 81% of the time. that's compared to 91% in the rest of the district. >> these kids, they sense
6:13 pm
things. they sense when they're being neglected. when their school is not like the other schools. you know, they see -- they see the disparity. >> reporter: i talked to one substitute teacher who didn't want to go on camera. she says when she gets the call to sub out in the bayview, she turns it down. in her case, she says, she doesn't have a car so it's a transportation issue. but she says she is also heard other subs talking about concerns that this is a high crime neighborhood and also rumors about how there might be behavioral problems since the schools in the bayview have a higher teacher turnover. >> the reality is that we have a perception that is unfair and in a lot of ways in my opinion untrue that those schools are more challenging to teach in. our substitutes get to choose the jobs that they accept and so there are other schools that we see subs more willing to go to than -- than some schools. >> reporter: the district says part of the solution could be incentive pay which of course could help the larger problem of retaining even full-time teachers in all the schools in an economy that continues to push them out of the city.

sweep the rangers... bottomf the 1st... danny welcome, everybody, to the oakland coliseum on one hand i have the warriors and okc in game 2. warriors trail one game to none. earlier today the a's, billy beane has taken a lot of heat for the deals that haven't panned out. let me tell you about two players that have. slugger chris davis and starter rich hill. they played against the rangers looking for the sweep. bob melvin and company the bottom of the first. danny valencia doing something other than hitting home runs for a change. two-run single. he has driven in 11 runs in the last six games with the average
6:53 pm
up to .357. the early lead was plenty for that man! rich hill struck out six gave up one run in six innings looking like an all-star six wins for him. last night, chris davis hit not one, not two, but three home runs including a walkoff grand slam! he said he still smelled like whipped cream and gatorade on the drive home. david strikes again solo to dead center field fourth homer in two games, davis with the most in the american league. a's win 8-1. that's their fourth straight win. >> just rats, really. i like, um, the more comfortable [ indiscernible ] than this. just a comfortable feeling. >> i don't like to talk about these things. it seems like every time he puts the barrel on it leaves

the ballpark. you wouldn't think that the sharks' brent burns has much in common with warriors all star steph curry but it turns out they have quite a bit of similarities in their game. >> i don't know if you noticed he was 0 for 10 from the three- point line last night. he made his 11th and he shimmied down the sideline. [ laughter ] >> i turned to luke, i said, luke, is he shimmying? he's one for 11 from three. [ laughter ] >> yeah. turns out burns also has the green light to keep shooting. he scored two goals last night as the sharks beat the blues to even up the series at one game apiece. unlike curry burns' green light isn't due to consistent accuracy. >> when you have confidence in it, you're more eager to go to it. does it go hot and cold? >> do i shoot more if i feel good. no. shoot, can't pass though. brent doesn't lack confidence. >> there's no place like home. there's no place like home. ♪[ music ]
