4:54 am
was convicted, of three felony counts of an intoxicated and unconscious woman, the current law allowed the judge to offer probation. this bill would prevent that. it would mandate a prison term whether a victim was conscious or unconscious. >> convicted rapists whether they committed their crimes on campus or off, whatever racial or ethnic background, rich or poor must be sentenced to prison. >> i don't think we should go there. i think it is reactionary legislation and that is never a good thing. >> reporter: the public defender says this legislation is the wrong approach. he defends the judge and believes that turner having to register as a sex offender for life is a harsher penalty than

any sentence. >> that means you cannot get jobs, you can't live where you want to you can go to parks.>> reporter: he says he is working with two legislatures to get this past. he also says that he has been in contact with the victim in this case and that she completely supports the change in law. here is a live look outside as we check the bay bridge. looks pretty nice here. as for the weather and traffic flow we will get an update in just a bit.

station. kron 4 news at 5:00 starts now. okay. so we have a little on the way of some fog going on to start things off. that will just be temporary. here is a look for you. you can see is bubbling upcoming from the coast. a little bit of climate control kind of indicates what we have right now. 50s on the boards. chilly 48 to santa rosa. you can see over to fairfield. it's 54. so it's a 54 to get things started. for san francisco, the breakdown. 64 by 11:00. 3:00, 65. but there will be a cool breeze throughout the day today. and your break down for the day, about 80 or so about 1:00. racing to near 90 in some spots. and by the bay, look for numbers already in the lower 70s by the early afternoon. we'll have your extended forecast in a bit. right now robin with a look at traffic. >> all right. just some minor crowding at the bay bridge plaza. if you're about to head in, avoid the cash lanes on the
5:02 am
right. if you're driving on the right. looking at the live shot. the lanes keep backing up. it's not major. stay over to the opposite side. or if you have fast track, you're definitely going to save time. overall, it's a pretty good ride into san francisco. it will be 10 minutes. a closer look at traffic coming out of the maze or oakland. 24 looking good. no problem for the east shore. the freeway at the limit and no problems so far. we're hot spot free. the chair wishes to make an announcement regarding the forum in the house chamber. the chair appreciates that members will differ on matters of policy and will seek to express those differences. >> our top story this morning, chaos in congress as democrats stage a sit in and barely allow house speaker paul ryan to get a word in. and now we have a live look
5:03 am
where democrats are entering the 24th hour of the sit in. >> the house was adjourning until after the holiday. democrats trying to force a vote on three gun control measures in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history. as we take a look at the pictures, let's go there live. >> let's go to the house floor with dozens of democrats for the sit in demanding a vote on legislation to address gun violence. good morning. >> good morning, mark. good morning, james. >> how are you holding up? >> i'm good. i'm good. i spent the evening with my colleagues on the floor and started yesterday morning. and it was actually quite spontaneous. but led by a sitting figure john lewis, the civil rights leader. he's one of our colleagues. he encouraged us all to seat until the republicans vote on gun violence.
5:04 am
that's what we've been doing. >> so going forward then, house republicans have left. they've turned off the lights. they've turned off the cameras. what's the game plan here? how long can you guys keep this up? >> well, we are just about day break here in washington. we're approaching 24 hours. we'll be going back to the district over the next few days. what we've heard from our constituents, republicans, democrats, independence, finally congress is doing something about gun violence. so while the republicans have chosen to take a break, we know that gun violence victims and their families get no break in their grieving. those that ravage our streets with guns don't take a break. so the house should not be taking a break until it passes. the no fly, no buy legislation. >> there was a vote on monday on four bills, and they all failed. so how do you propose going forward that congress can pass
5:05 am
some sort of legislation? >> sure. actually the senate voted. the house has not. a majority of the members of the senate actually supported that legislation but their rules require 60 or more members to do so. we believe we have a majority of the members in the house who would supporupñ?ñ?t the idea thf you're too dangerous to get on a plane, then you're do dangerous to buy a firearm. >> now, going forward is the hope you'll be able to get a vote before july 4th? >> well, i know our house members are invigorated now and we're going to continue to keep this issue live and the american people expect us to do that. so we want to vote as soon as possible and we don't believe we should be taking a break. >> it's kind of interesting. we've been looking at the live facebook stream here from congressman's phone that you have set up. >> and i have a parascope feed going. . >> it's been a lot of interesting to see a lot of people turning on facebook and taking a look at the live feed
5:06 am
with a lot of curiosity. we're seeing representatives literally sitting on the floor in some of these shots as they're camping out quite literally. talk to us about what is going on in there and kind of bring us in. paint us the picture. >> sure. since it began, the republican leaders have turned off the cameras. the c-span cameras. so i and others turned on our parascope, facebook and snapchat accounts so they have a voice in the house. that has continued all along. i think by going rogue in the way that we did, we actually probably brought more attention than if this was only brought to them on c-span. and so that has been quite exciting as well. >> technology certainly changing things. 24 hours now. are you getting food and water? >> we're getting food and water. and went outside there and heard the protestors outside who are also saying no break until there's a bill. and they waited in the rain all
5:07 am
evening. and they slept outside in the rain. if they can do that, we can certainly stand on this house floor and demand action. >> all right. well, we appreciate your time with us this morning. and hopefully maybe we can chat with you again later in the morning and get things up to speed again. thank you. we appreciate your time. we'll try to come back in the morning as the standoff in congress continues. new this morning, the city of oakland has hired a private investigator in the wake of the scandal. >> who is leaking information on the scandal, including the sex scandal involving a then under age call girl and officers. >> we're outside oakland city hall this morning with more. will. >> reporter: they're using taxpayer dollars to hire this private investigator to look at city official, city employees, but more specifically what's going on at the oakland police department. these leaks involve oakland police officers. now, let me show you exactly

5:09 am
she held a news conference. i want to talk about the alleged racist text back and forth between many police officers. she identify edied them as african-american. standard wise, you never tell anything about any officer or their age, their race, their rank. in this case she identified the ethnicity. she came out yesterday saying she apologizes for that. however, many council members are criticizing her saying if they were white police officers, she would not have done that. back to you. >> all right. thanks, will. well, continued coverage kron4 first to break the news. an officer let his girlfriend write reports. you can find all of the coverage with the oakland police scandals on our website at kron 4.com if you'd like to investigate for more sure self.

5:17 am

5:21 am
radicalized several people, including the portland shooter. and mentioned that he had also seen videos and my reaction to him was what he thought about the videos. and he told me they were powerful. both of those raised a red flag for me and prompted me to speak with the fbi. >> meantime investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what he was doing between the first visit at the pulse nightclub and then his second visit two hours later when he opened fire. it was during that second visit that he killed 49 club goers. mateen's wife said he left their home angry and carrying a bag full of guns, but she didn't think he was going to do anything. prosecutors haven't decided whether to file charges against her. and the three people accused of murdering an milbury father are due in court this afternoon. they are charged with the murder
