their own path. the controversial end-of-life law... takes ef june ninth. it was y brittany maynard, in less than three weeks, terminally ill patients will be of the choose their own path is the right to die law takes effect on june 9. it was inspired by brittany maynard who diagnosed with brain cancer, moved to california -- from california to oregon where it is legal to take their own life.>> and we have a doctor here to join us and tell us who is eligible. it starts on june 9, and is there still questions?>> the law is in place, and there are
still questions to be answered because it is a brand-new law. were waiting to find out what the medication will be and what pharmacies will dispense it, but it will go ahead on tonight. >> is anybody saying they will not do this, or are there any roadblock?>> so far looks like it will start right on june 9. >> and we are pattern -- patterning this after oregon. >> in order to a bill yourself under the act, you have to meet the criteria, less than six months prognosis, and the second is that you have the decision-making capacity around the law so that you can decide in understand the law, and the third is that you can self administer so that you can take the medication yourself. >> that will leave a lot of people out, those with dementia or those physically incapable of doing that. and why was that put in?>> you can understand that there are
risks when you take someone unable to make the decision themselves or not able to take the medication themselves, they could be taken advantage of. these are safeguards the california put in place and other states as well to ensure that it is the individuals conscious decision to take the medication. >> in oregon, many people request it, but they don't take it but they want it there is an option and can you explain that. can you walk us through what goes on?>> we don't know what california will be like, but if it is like oregon, most people do not choose to participate in the act. those that do may request the medication and not take it. who knows why, but a lot of it is feeling like you have some sort of control. just knowing that you have the option, that may be enough
sometimes. i think there is a lot of fear about what death will be like, and if you have good management and hospice involved, a lot of times you don't need to interject.>> what is the talk of those on the front line about this? this is such a departure from the history of medicine and even in our society.>> hospice has the philosophy not to hasten the death or prolong it, but to help people with managing the symptoms and psychological, spiritual and medical component of the dying process. but we don't want this law to get in the way of things that we do, only .3% of the people in oregon took advantage of the law, and the majority of the people are ineligible because they either do not have the decision-making capacity, or the fiscal ability to self
administer the medication.>> you see the next couple of years expanding this to include people that are ineligible now, or what would be the next step? >> there are many people that say that i would like to decide now in case i get alzheimer's disease. i will be surprised if that changes, and oregon has had this law for over 20 years. they have not chosen to go there because of the risk of taking someone that is no longer able to decide to take the medication, and who will have to have someone do that for them. >> thank you for joining us, in june 9 will be a landmark day and we will see how this happens, and it will be interesting. thank you for joining us. let's take a look outside and see how the rest of the day is going. >> not too bad if you have outdoor plans, most of us will not see rain outside today, cloudy and cool with current

>> did mayor ed lee or greg suhr even have a choice in this?>> the minute that the news hit that there was another shooting of a black person in the bayview neighborhood, greg suhr should have left town and so should have and lee. -- and lee -- ed lee.>> it is says that 60% of the san franciscans will have trust in the police department, but i'm not sure that if this were put to a vote weather greg suhr would have had to resign .'s back most san franciscans trust the san francisco police department, and their experience with the san francisco police department has been a positive one under the leadership of greg suhr and before him . there is not a rejection by the general population of san francisco, this was a specialty, and the specialty is reflected in
almost american -- in almost every american city between law enforcement and the communities of color. san francisco is clearly no different.>> if we cannot come to a consensus in the great liberal progressive san francisco, where can we do this?>> i agree, things like tasers are caught up in the police commission, and trying to make progress, and it is a slow going.>> many of these reforms are rejected to buy the civil liberties types that believed that that kind of thing -- >> and also the police officers union. >> that is correct, a weird combination of people creating problems for someone that wishes to be the chief. i have often said and i repeat that once you make police chief, what you should do is cut your appointed authority loose and become the people she.
-- chief. almost to the point where you respond more to the need to the people they you are to either the police officers or to your appointed authorities, and if you are trying to do the job. if you build the relationship with the people, as the people did in new york, you will be better off.>> hearing from the interim teeth, tony chaplin talking about doing a lot of the things that -- the interim chief, tony chaplin talking about doing a lot of things that the former police chief wanted to do, and will he be anymore successful? >> that remains to be seen because the gridlock remains the same. we will sit down with the police chief union president and talk to him about it, and talk about the shakeup and changes going on from the rank- and-file perspective.>> okay,
this morning. the san francisco acting police chief is bowing to take charge and to make changes. this after the former police chief, greg suhr steps down, and still ahead, the president of the police union will talk about the challenges that lie ahead of the department. this is a matter making elected officials do their job to keep our children safe.>> very different visions of gun control policies in the race for the white house, the new gun control laws in california could be on the governor's desk this week. trying to stop the new push on pulling the plug on the land lines, and the phone company behind it is rallying against it. and not a bad day for the outdoor plans, my daughter will go to her friends birthday party today, and if given outdoor birthday party, don't

the laws.>> we already had the popular support, and this is a matter of making the elected officials do their job to keep our children safe. >> new gun reform laws could be on the governor's desk this week.'s back assault rifles with detachable magazines, and the so-called bullet buttons, a no -- supposed to law on the way to the assembly that would require background checks when you acquire him edition as well -- when you acquire ammunition as well.>> i would feel safer knowing that the safeguards are in place. >> they would also require registration of homemade guns, and tube reported when they are laws, and restrict guns from being landed to friends. all of a sudden there is these dumping of these gun control measures that they were talking about, and the lieutenant governor is putting a measure on the november ballot that
will do the same things, so explain to us, why not let the voters decide?>> under the changes in the initiative process, we did this legislature the chance to see if they can do what the voters want them to do it. >> why can we not just decide it? >> the idea is that it costs millions of dollars to put it on the ballot, and if you give the legislator time to do it, you can take it off. if they do what they are asked. >> i think there is fear that maybe a lot of the people that are pro-gun would turn out for the election specifically, maybe they thought it would not turn out the way they wanted to, and decided to push it to the legislature. >> i would have to agree with you, but i'm not sure that gavin newsom is happy that the state is preempting his ballot since he wanted to make some political leeway with this.

whether the technology will hold up in case of an emergency. >> what makes the difference between a cell phone and landline in an earthquake situation?>> look at katrina or any natural disaster, cell phones do not work because the systems get overloaded and crash. the bigger question is do you need the old copper wire, stain powered for up to two weeks by virtue that the copper, the new technology may not perform as well. coming up next, the president of the san francisco police union talk about the shake off, and rank-and-file, and basics in we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,
two things toney chaplin sae wants to focus on: the orce a developing story, the acting police chief of san francisco promising major changes, and tony chaplin was to focus on the department use of force policy and body cameras. mayor ed lee has appointed him as acting chief after former chief greg suhr resigned last week. and joining us is martin, the president of the police
officer association, and out of the gate, should greg suhr have gone ?>> eventually would have to of left the department, 35 years for a job and the most innovative cheap. i don't think -- innovative chief. i don't think he should've gone under this, and he had already had policies in force about body cameras and looking into the excessive force. we were taking this to the mayor incompletes -- and become taking that to the mayor that day before the shooting. >> everything is been before the city hall and commission for years, and we can treat you -- we continue to hit the gridlock and what is changing?>> we can move quickly if the police commission will follow the policies we have put forth, and that would help.
>> he faced as much trouble with you guys as well. >> i disagree. we have shown the police commission and the chief that we have policies in place, draft policy on cameras, excessive force, and the police commission change this at the last minute in february, and we were almost signed off, and they changed it and did not send it to the working group, and now this is happening. >> all of this is going around and around in circles while people are getting broke into, cars are getting broken into, and people are getting shot, and now the police chief is out the door, and something has to change in san francisco, otherwise you are throwing them in the deep into the pool.>> i agree. the government officials in the city need to support the interim chief, tony chaplin. he is in the deep into the pool, and are the city officials going to throw him a
lifeline or the bag of rocks. i called him on wednesday night and toting that he has our full support and that we want to work with him and get these things done now. >> in the final months of the resignation and in his changing too fast and bending to the will of city hall as well.>> there were rumblings of the rank-and-file, and i quelled those rumblings and i spoke with our members reminding them that we worked very well with greg suhr over the past five years. the mood now is that the members out on the field out there day in and day out what true leadership. they were caught off guard and i was caught off guard and the mayor dismissed the chief greg suhr. and now we have tony chaplin we want strong policy we want these body cameras now. >> tell us what they are feeling. >> we do not feel like certain
members of the board of supervisors have our back, and four of them came out against greg suhr the way they came out against the day of remembrance for mario woods. in the next six months, real quick, will we see body cameras?>> i say yes if in fact tony chaplin follows what greg suhr did . on a limited basis. more training for crisis training? >> that is taking place now.'s track a reduction in crime? >> that is being worked on now with a task force. thank you for joining us, and now we will take a look at the weather. we are beginning to see some breaks in the clouds, and outside right now partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid- 50s for the most part, a few spots warming up into the mid-
50s. the future cast showing clearing by midday, chances of scattered showers mainly to the north and south, but a sprinkle or two possible in the bay area. clearing throughout the day today, and this evening more clearing as we head through the evening hours. monday we have cloud cover in a chance of showers, but overall just unsettled with the possibility of scattered showers continuing through tuesday with a 10% of showers in the bay area. running below average on temperatures, topping out in the upper 60s near 70 in the warm spots, a similar temperature range in the east bay. around the bay today, topping out in the mid to low 60s along the coast. mainly upper 60s for those up north with the best chance of showers. the extended forecast on a possible chance of showers with most of us staying dry, the same over the next couple of days, and a warming trend heading into next weekend. bernie sanders falling behind hillary clinton when it
comes to the fundraising and delegates, and has been saying for some time, but he is showing urgency in california with two weeks before the primary, 425 pledged delegates added by the congressional districts, and sanders rallying in southern california. former president bill clinton is making another stop in southern california to support his wife. later this week he heads to san francisco while hillary clinton travels to riverside, orange county in san jose. a race not only for the candidacy, but for the democratic party, and we ask our political analyst melissa caen and the san francisco mayor willie brown about the game plan, and is it about the winning of the nomination or changing the entire party structure to stop hillary? >> it is far more focused on the nomination, but now about changing the system, the way
that the democrats nominate people and the way that the primary works. it is interesting that we thought the republican convention will be the exciting one with the millions of dollars and the right gear being purchased, and in cleveland. but it may end up philadelphia is the more interesting convention.>> is it policy between these two or getting personal? >> clearly there is a disk like apparently between sanders and the clintons, and it is showing itself repeatedly, and it has escalated. i remind you that the democratic convention is always the more interesting national convention. remember chicago, 1972 in miami. remember all of those and new york. but the confrontation, and believe me, the democrats always have an active body.>>
how important is california to this convention?>> california is just another breeding ground for the expression of views and ideas, and we don't really count.>> does how they score here count?>> it does not matter. by the time you get to california, the deal is usually already done for the democrats. >> but it seems like bernie sanders is counting on california to give him that stamp of approval.>> i think you guys are way off, and the california is more important from the nancy below shut standpoint -- and were looking at people running for the job of going back to congress, off of the job of trying to gain a seat in certain areas of california that the democrats do not now have. were looking at harris and sanchez in that crowd, and were not looking at the national
picture in the global sense of the word.>> but everybody else is. >> i am not willing to give up the california is important, and we are going to say it until it is true. >> we are a blue state, and the dress you are wearing is symbolic of where we will be.>> thank you for joining us this morning. it is interesting because in california we have eight semi open primary, and most people call this independent, you can vote in the democratic election. >> the deadline to change that is tomorrow, and they are filing suit to change that saying that it is disenfranchising, and there is a big fight about bringing in the independent for the democratic primary which could change the outcome. whether counts as far as delegates remains to be seen, and a big showing in california with this much interest, believe me it is telling.
and a kpix invstigation uncovered concerning chemcis in a majority of the car ses tested. car seats are the only product that the parents are required by law to purchase, and we have the kpix investigation covering the chemicals in the majority of the car seats that are being tested.>> we took a closer look at the 44-year-old standard, and basically a requires what manufacturers say required, that they used the flame retardant in the car seats, but the federal standard has never been tested, and regulators admit there is no evidence that it provides any safety, and some say it simply does not. >> instead of protecting the kids, they are introducing poison into their environment. >> the health concerns about
the flyer -- fire retardants date back to the 70s. but the recent investigation repeatedly found that the same flame retardant is inside the allegedly green car seat. it is also inside the child that uses it. >> it suggest that the car she was the primary source of the exposure. back the car seat is the only consumer product required by law in all 50 states. with the help of the national laboratory, we have put the standard to the informal test. >> tonight at 6 clock we will do with the regulators have not, and like the car seats on fire to test the standards, and the results have surprised even our combustion scientists, and the full story is here just before 60 minutes, and you can join me live on facebook live for a q&a on the six-month
