months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. but the push to recall the judge -- who handed down turner's sentence -- is still in the works. judge aaron persky is being reassigned to civil cases -- at his own request. that means he will no longer this morning brock turner is back at home after serving three months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman but the push to recall the judge who handed down his sentence is still in the works. judge aaron persky is being reassigned to civil cases at his own request meaning he will no longer handle criminal cases but critics say that isn't enough. after turner walked out on friday they are calling for persky to be recalled. >> are you ready to give judge
7:43 am
persky the early release that he deserves? >> yes! >> is it time to release judge persky? >> i hope he knows he's as much part of the problem as brock turner is. >> the das office issued this statement on turner's release: >> if we had our way brock turner would be in state prison serving a six-year sentence, not going home. the comment is a stark contrast from the one they sent to the va who prosecuted the case. kpix five maclaird weeks ago the prosecutor sent an email of -- has learned weeks ago the prosecutor sent an email saying i disagree with the sentence but i have the utmost respect for you as a judge. i'm really sorry for any negativity or personal attacks you are enduring. welcome michelle. talk to me a little bit here. we have seen that judge aaron persky is no longer hearing
7:44 am
criminal cases. is that not enough in this case? >> no. we will be continuing with the recall until he is no longer a judge. first of all, that is a temporary voluntary reassignment . in santa clara county reassign our judges annually. he can transfer back to criminal court whenever he wants. second law, -- of all, one of the most egregious instances of bias included a civil case in which he presided over a civil case about a -- and a legend gang rape of a 17-year-old girl by members of a baseball team. he is biased and we don't need a biased judge in civil court either. >> so your contention is this is part of a pattern of bias in this case. talk to me a bit about -- we just heard from the assistant da in the case there who is actually defensive of the judge saying the judge has been there. does that -- has been fair. does that impact your feeling? >> no. what she's really referring to if you read the letter carefully are some personal
7:45 am
attacks on the judge. in the form of potential threats of violence against the judge which we do not support or endorse either. she was not saying that she has an opinion on the recall one way or the other. >> okay. and your view is it's time at this point this is a judge that has been in the spotlight with a very harsh glare. where does this have to go -- your view is this has to go before the field -- the voters. >> yes in case after front -- case involving violence and domestic salt -- assault, he does not understand the crimes are properly way the harm. -- weigh the harm. a football player severely beat, choked and assaulted his ex-girlfriend and then threw her out of a car headfirst and was allowed by the judge to go to hawaii, to leave the state with no probation, no reporting
7:46 am
and no supervision. we don't think that decision was legal. we are very concerned about his lack of empathy for victims of assault and domestic violence and his lack of willingness to punish them appropriately. >> what message do you hope to send and what impact you think this will have on other judges? >> we think this will have basically no impact on other judges because we have shown through our research into this judge's record that he is really an outlier. his sentencing patterns in these cases are very very different from those of other judges. for example we did a study of child pornography is -- felony sentencing and showed every other judge gives a sentence of six months for that very serious felony sex offense and judge persky sentenced to one offender to -- one night in jail. he sentences very differently and we think he is very biased compared with other judges.
7:47 am
>> sounds like this is specifically about him. michelle daughter, thank you so much for joining us. -- michele dauber, thanks so much for joining us . we are going to check in with your weekend forecast. your holiday weekend forecast and we are starting to see blue skies over golden gate. this dog is the dividing line here. we are seeing some of those coastal clouds and morning lows but morning -- everyone will see later sunshine today with temps starting in the 50s pretty much in the out -- much areawide. we have fought really from the san francisco peninsula south this morning and low clouds inland for some portion of the east bay but as we make our way throughout the day, plenty of us will see sunshine as that fog pulls back . we are a little breezy in some locations right now but those winds have been dying down as we move out over the last couple of hours.
7:48 am
we have pretty calm winds right now it north. from a satellite perspective we are going to continue to see mild temperatures as this area of low pressure moves inland but we have high pressure building in behind it and as it does temperatures are warming as we move into our work weeks the temperatures are looking like they could be in the upper 90s maybe some of the hottest spots england reporting triple digits by midweek but most of us will stay relatively mild today very mild. 60s along the coast and 70s around the bay today. 76 in san jose, 79 in santa rosa . if you are traveling around northern california you want the 90s, go ahead and heading to the valley. 60s along the coast from monterrey. and then 70 up in the high country for lake tahoe today. 88 in fresno. labor day, temperatures ranging from the 60s on the coast to the 80s -- upper 80s for the
7:49 am
warmest spots so the warming trend begins tomorrow and then really kicks up especially for inland folks by midweek so we are talking mid to upper 90s for many inland locations by wednesday. although by the bay we stay in the 70s, not a lot of change but inland temperatures really ramping up wednesday into thursday and then cooling heading into next weekend. coming up next, hated or a hero? political insiders weigh in on colin kaepernick's scandal. plus, who else is weighing in this morning. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

7:54 am
all of us would love to be able to say hey, we are just as tough as he is but we have to know and everything he says as to why he's doing it is consistent with what we ought to be saying and thinking about . although we come right up to the line and say we wouldn't do it. >> i think a lot of people say this are -- these are good issues but this isn't the exact appropriate way to do it and to say i am not going to stand until there's equality in america, you're just basically saying you're never going to stand for the pledge -- for the national anthem because that's sort of this very ambiguous goal and not one he might see in his lifetime. >> keep in mind, if you don't focus on it with the television camera or on this show or any other place -- it becomes a nothing in the eyesight of people. people were not screaming at him get up get up as the anthem was being played. >> what's the difference between sitting down and taking in the? >> taking in the is almost --
7:55 am
taking a knee is almost paying homage . if you go to the catholic church you are on your knees. if they say it's time to do that. >> taking a seat, what message does that send? >> that sends the message your feet are hurting. [laughter] >> i think you must be thrilled we are at least talking about this and not his arm. based on how he's been playing. a good headline is a good headline. >> but you have to remember in his performance a few nights ago, he was fabulous. he went 85 yards took them to a score, ran like he was doing some two years ago when he was playing for harbaugh. i think this guy kelly has finally found a quarterback that he can coach. >> you've taken it from being a national conscience issue to getting a -- being a good old get the ball across the line and that's what matters. >> it's good old football.
7:56 am
i am from mineola. >> now let's turn to sunday sports. hey good morning, everybody. nfl news for you of the raiders and 49ers. all the teams had to cut their rosters from 75 to a final of 53 yesterday so blaine gabbert will tell you his story. he's the story -- he's the starter. so says chip kelly. he will be starting a week from monday night against the rams. colin kaepernick is officially the backup. christian ponder third on the depth chart. gabbard has better command of kelly's offense at this point. it's as simple as that. about raiders, running batch -- back -- scored four touchdowns this preseason. probably will land on the practice squad. what a matchup yesterday. madison baumgartner cut jake arrieta -- cubs' jake arrieta went six innings but a well

,,,, i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function.
7:59 am
for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

a dozen san jose police to -- police officers traveled to hawaii in search of recruits and the search didn't net much more than a big bill for taxpayers. it cost about $43,000. they doesn't -- interviewed dozens of candidates but only picked up one possible candidate. to up -- >> it was a poor public relations choice because even as they may have had good intentions, it looks like a boondoggle, a trip for fun. >> we tried to reach the recruiting officer but so far we have not heard back. the san francisco budget is an all-time record totaling $9.6 billion but the big question is where is all that money going? as the chronicle reports there were two explanations, the first that many are moving into the city and the second that it's a city and county so it's
8:07 am
responsible for paying for just about everything. one other thing to note, the high cost of living means higher costs for city workers and leaders. who makes the most, now taking the number one spot is mayor ed lee making over $280,000 a year. in the second top spot is fire battalion chief kirk richardson making over $190,000 a year. b.a.r.t. is estimating it needs $9.6 billion just to keep trains running. in november it's asking voters for $3.5 million for improvements . bay area residents rely on the system to get to and from work but after 44 years not much has changed and now officials want to bring it back up to what they feel it should be. bay area members are taking on big soda. still to come we are talking to scott wiener a member of the san francisco board of supervisors on a new push to get attacks on sugary drinks -- to get a tax on the ballot on
8:08 am
sugary drinks. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
8:09 am
forces... in suppo,,,,,,,,
8:10 am
8:11 am
would tax sugary beverages. the measure would charge two bay area cities are joining forces to support a november ballot measure to tax sugary beverages. it would charge one penny per ounce of soda they sell for a bottle the size, $.20. they say charging the distributors is basically attacks on their businesses. >> it would be ideal to raise one thing. i would prefer to spread it out a little bit so it won't seem as much affecting them. we have produce and groceries, tortillas, flour, all of that is pretty much the necessities we need at home. it could pretty much expand through all of that just to cover the cost of that sugar tax. >> it's on the ballot in oakland, albany and san francisco. >> joining us now to talks -- to talk about this tax is scott wiener a member of the san
8:12 am
francisco board of supervisors and candidate for state senate. i get the feeling you have a pretty strong reaction. he said listen if i have to pay more for soda i am not going to just charge more for soda, i'm going to spread it out across all the items in my store, thus the reason some are calling this a grocery tax not a soda tax. is it a grocery tax or soda tax and what do you have to say to that? >> this is a soda tax. it is ace -- it is a tax on the type of beverage exploding -- making diabetes explode in our -- one can of soda has 10 teaspoons of sugar. these drinks are making our kids sick. >> i think most people agree that soda is not healthy and that certainly there are some negative side effects but i think the concern for many folks specifically in san francisco is is this tax going to cost me more when i go to buy my produce or anything else at the grocery store? but the
8:13 am
answer is no it won't. this whole idea of a quote grocery tax is a talking point by the american beverage association, coca-cola, pepsi etc. because they know the soda tax is popular. that people understand it. so they are trying to trick people into thinking it's going to make all groceries more expensive. it's not. grocers don't spread cigarette taxes to milk and produce. it makes cigarettes more expensive than that will be the case here . >> is there anything written into the law that would preclude a grocery from doing that? let's say they have to charge $.20 more or whatever it is to edge -- a can of soda as opposed to anything else. let me give you a quick example. when berkeley past their soda tax last year, in 2015 i did a story there where we went into a burger joint and they were charging a $.22 tax for every beverage including water, tea, you name it. i started investigating and we found that was illegal. first of all they were calling it attacks but they were keeping
8:14 am
the money so you can't do that but -- and they quickly changed it after we pointed it out but what is to preclude a grocery from doing that to raising the price on everything? >>the government doesn't micromanage how grocers set their prices but in terms of how business is actually act when there is a tax on the distribution of soda and sugary drink because they are causing type ii diabetes, we know from experience with cigarette taxes that that will lead to soda and sugary drinks being more expensive. >> so you are saying listen grocers don't take the cigarette tax and spread it out among all there other products -- their other products so they shouldn't be doing this with soda as well. >> correct. that's not how retail pricing works and we in 2014 when we went to the ballot, we talked to a lot of grocers and small business owners and it was very clear that this will not get spread out. this will make soda and sugary treats more expensive just like
8:15 am
cigarette taxes make cigarettes more expensive and people are healthier as a result. >> i wish we had one -- more time to talk because we had a similar proposal in 2014. it didn't get the votes necessary. what was the percentage? >> 56%. the soda industry spent $10 million against us. 56% said yes but we needed a two thirds majority. >> you still need that? >> no, now we need a majority. >> so if you get the same number of votes this year, it will pass. >> yes. >> thanks so much for being here. christin, back over to you . clinton and trump taking the day off from the campaign trail -- trail. last week trump claimed the
8:16 am
issue of building a border wall never came up but his host emphasized on twitter what he said he told the candidate to his face, quote mexico would never pay for wall. several members of his hispanic advisory council took his rhetoric as an excuse to quit and that comes as a new reuters pro -- poll shows 36% of likely voters back trump and 39% back clinton. we will meet this week's jefferson award winner. ,, ororor asasnarrator: it wasn't that long ago. ,, years of devastating cutbacks to our schools. 30,000 teachers laid off. class sizes increased. art and music programs cut. we can't ever go back. ryan ruelas: so vote yes on proposition 55. reagan duncan: prop 55 prevents 4 billion

8:18 am
you. the one issue that has sparked the most controversy in the u.s. has been that of immigration/illegal immigration. trump is basically banking his campaign on america backing his choice. debt, does he win or lose? >>at this stage of the game he has an equal shot of being the president of these united states and i frankly hate to say that. >> he's so close in the polls. you'd think there's a bigger difference but he's staying right with her. he's certainly in striking range. >> delivering that speech in
8:19 am
phoenix after going to mexico, where does that put him? >> back in the spotlight. as a matter of fact, the various newspapers giving an account of it, started out where i don't want them to start if i am a hillary person and that's with trump. hillary has gone back to being second billing. you don't want that. >> there's been a lot of political chatter but i think the truth is a lot of people really like that speech and they liked seeing him act presidential. i think it helped him. i think the post these polls will show a jump for him. >> i have been talking with pollsters and they are amazed. they say other -- unlike others where you start seeing tracks about how things are going, this is a roller coaster. it goes up and down. >> remember for almost a year now are more donald trump has literally restructured how we do things politically.

he's restructured how we do things reporting wise. he slayed -- restructured how you measure with polls. this guys doing what you're not supposed to do. >> he's driving people crazy at least on the chatter -- it's not just his message but his tone. is his message on immigration that much different than obama, or is it about his tone and bombastic take statements. i'm going to build a wall when in fact, we have parts of the wall going up. >> i think a lot of it has to do with the tone. he started a speech by saying this isn't a rally, this is a policy speech but it sounded like a rally and there was a lot of enthusiasm in there. the truth is if you look at the clinton campaign for example, president obama, they are not necessarily opposed to deporting people who commit violent felonies either. so the idea of deporting people were detaining people arrested for violent crimes is not unique to trump.

>> but is he betting too much on that one issue and could it caused him latino votes? >> he literally doesn't care about latino votes. he knows he has 45% of the population. he's got to keep them entertained. he's got to keep giving them red meat and then he's got to rely upon -- the press with clinton, the turnout with all her problems associated and what have you and then he's got to say about the johnson guy in a couple of others in the race, please, if you want, don't vote for me. don't -- vote for them. he's doing it the way he has to to get to the numbers. >> it's an interesting equation and one we will keep an eye on. for now we are out of time so back to you guys. we will take a look at the weekend forecast now heading outside. we're starting to see blue skies especially for the northern portions of the area
