7:34 am
dispensable in american society. >> regardless of if you saw what happened or not, it was the blatant disrespect that people feel because they left his body here for four and a half hours, that is really what charges people up. >> reporter: film maker and ferguson resident chris phillips lives in the apartment complex where brown was killed, so moved by the raw emotions, he began recording it, culminating it in a documentary. >> has anything changed between the relationship of people and police here, especially in this particular area? >> i don't think that anything has changed with the relationship because they are still not engaging their citizens. >> reporter: they found ferguson was disproportionately excessively ticketing the black citizens. the white police chief and city manager and police judge have been replaced. the new interim police chief is black, so is the new city manager. and the new municipal judge. as are two new city council

7:36 am
reminder of what happens here, trying to make a point that it wasn't about brown's death, but the rebirth of a civil rights movement. >> with this legacy, it is affecting the world in a distance because of the fact that they did make people motivated to speak up to march and rally and to fight the change. >> reporter: cnn ferguson, missouri. coming up in about 10 minutes, you'll hear from the former officer darren wilson about what he has been doing since the shooting one year ago today. bay area news now this morning a police chase on the peninsula will lead to five arrests that happened at about 9:00 on friday night and the officer on highway one, trying to stop the vehicle near the avenue. the officer suspected drunk driving, but the driver kept on going and then crashed in to a hillside near the tunnel, rolled over, the car landed on its roof. police arresting five male suspects. three of them juveniles. the vehicle was later found to be stolen.

9:36 am
efforts of those who don't do things the way they do. if we are not out shouting at the cops threatening to rape their families, we are not committed to the cause of social justice. >> reporter: the plaque serves as a reminder of what happened here. this was not just about brown's death, but the rebite of a civil rights movement. >> i think it has affected the world in a good sense. it did make people motivated to speak up, to march, to rally, to fight for change. we will be right back.

9:46 am
week from now, we will be up into the mid 90s in some parts around the bay area. plenty of sunshine as well. over the last couple of mons we told you about several whales that have been washing ashore to bay area beaches. the most recent one was a week ago in pacifica. it has a lot of us wondering why this is happening. here to talk about it is dr. shawn johnson. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you marty. >> we wanted to ask you why is this happening? i know there are several reasons. >> we had a hump back whale stranded in pacifica this week. we tried to determine why without doing a full necropsy. we try to fig your out this whale looked like it had been struck by something really big. most likely a ship that caused a fracture of its vertebrae and killed it. >> i than happened earlier in the year as well. >> yes, a juvenile female hump back in may that washed up with
9:47 am
the same problem. it is not common, but we do see gray whales in are struck by ships. >> and, there are other reasons that this is happens as well. you were telling me part of it has to do with the food source moving. >> yeah, off the coast here, there are a large number of whales right now the. gray whales are migrating to alaska. there are large numbers of autodifferent types of whales which is unusual. because the warm water temperatures right now, all the food is migrated further north bringing all the whales with them. >> so can we expect to see more whales beaching themselves over the next several months? >> yeah, i would think it wouldn't be unusual to see some more whales washing up on our beaches because they are such high concentrations of them along the farallon islands and there's a lot of shipping traffic. there are other reasons they could die. >> you mentioned one of the
9:48 am
other reasons could be this toxic algae bloom. >> yes, this summer there has been a high level of demulic acid, a neurotoxin produced by a marine algae. and that affect it is sea lions, all the marine animals. it can be a horrible disease if they get it. >> seems like we have a lot of issues going on with the fact we are seeing more beached whales. one of them has to do with the food sources moving and one the algae bloom. and also because there are more whales, a lot of them are hit by shipping. >> that would be all the causes so far. >> so let's turn our attention to this fun run that you have going on. it is to help the sea lion population. >> this year has been one of the busiest years we have had with a huge number of fee loon
9:49 am
strandings. to pay for all the animals, we have a fund raising event called fun run. this is a 5k certified run where runners can get certified for future races. you can bring your dog, enjoy the scenery. we encourage people to dress up. it is a great event we have every single year to help pay for the current patients that we have on site. but also, we are getting really worried about next year with this looming el niño. >> what concern is that causing? >> when there is a large el niño, water temperatures increase. >> it so it warms up more. >> yes causing the food to leave the area. all the animals that rely on the food in the channel islands don't have enough food and they wash up starving. >> so this is yet another issue that you and the other members of the marine mammal center may
