(pam) tonight .. the berkeley city council .... overturned a 20 -year ban to allow police officers to use pepper spray in violent crowds. kron
4's ella sogomonian has been tracking this all day.. she is live at the berkeley police department. ella what did the police chief tell you after the approval? well he explained that his force needed this extra tool to keep free speech safe by having an alternative to batons and tear gas when confronted with violent extremists. 6 out of 9 berkeley city council members agreed tuesday to allow officers to use pepper spray in a crowd after a recent series of rallies turned riots.but many in the chamber disagreed with the vote to eliminate the 20 year ban saying the harsh chemical also known as o-c can hurt peaceful protestors in the same vicinity.sot: andrea prichett, berkeley cop watch// "twenty years ago berkeley cop watch stopped the police from even using pepper spray because we were concerned by the rising number of oc related deaths. studies showed
the repellents in pepper spray are often very toxic."the berkeley police chief laid shields he said were used by extremists in previous protests and showed images of the violence they've encountered to prove they need a better tool to combat the growing problem.sot: chief andrew greenwood, berkeley police department// "allow officers to have choices when faced with this difficult situation and use this force that is as direct able as possible which causes the least amount of harm to others in order to make the community safer."he went on to say pepper spray is a better alternative to tear gas or blunt force they were already allowed to use. sot: joshua buswell-charkow, berkeley resident//"and so it seem the police have explored just every possible option that is out there and this is the simplest one that will cause the least amount of chaos and disturbance to chaos that may be out there and so it just seemed like the most reasonable solution." those who disagree say this was a rushed decision at a meeting held at an inconvenient time 3pm when most are at work or school in an effort to pass the motion

(steve) 49ers fans are sitting in the hot seat - literally.many of them are complaining about how hot levi's stadium was at sunday's game... and how the stadium itself doesn't provide much relief for the faithful. as proof fans might not be happy - there seemed to be a lot of empty seats.kron four's
spencer blake is live in santa clara.spencer is the team aware of these complaints? not only aware of them, but already implemented some things to help in the short runand are looking into feasbile ideas for the long term.but as of now, fans may just have to take the heat. during sunday's 49er loss to the panthers, there were plenty of empty seats.like, álotsá of empty seats.of course, that ácould be because niners are coming off a record-low two-and-14 season. but a lot of people say the heat played the biggest role. season ticket holder wilson
trujillo often gives his seats away to family and friends. "they actually don't even sit in the seats. they walk around. they do what i do. they wanna stay cool; they wanna stay in the shade."shade - it's hard to find at the four-year-old stadium.not just in the seats, but in other areas, too.trujillo doesn't like the open concourses on the south end of the stadium. "in order for you to get some shade, you would have to close something off in that area just so people could actually get some shade, but i don't think that's ever gonna happen."he held season tickets at candlestick and says things were much better there when it came to protection from the sun.he says he felt misled by the salesperson who sold him his new seats at levi's about when and where the sun would hit."they even did recommendations at the end of the season. i even said there's these cooly towels that actually keep you cool. hand those out."to be fair, stadium staff ádid hand those very towels out on sunday, along with water, sunscreen, and misters.maybe those are enough to keep some people in their seats for longer than the trujillos stay seated. "fifteen minutes, not continually, but sporadically because we're always walking around looking for shade."the 49ers are working with a stadium architecture firm to see what, if anything, can be done to the stadium itself to help with the hot-weather issues. the 49ers also point out they reminded ticket holders about the unseasonably warm temperatures forecasted on sunday, and told them to

(steve).. and if it is outlawed here in california... it looks like our very own stanley roberts will get the credit... or the blame - depending on how you look at it. you know what will happen right after you hear enough complaints about people testing and walking someone will introduce a law making it illegal well now we are now
one step closer to my 2008 prediction i'll make a motion to adopt a resolution urging state legislators to take action to promote traffic safety by prohibiting the use of cell phones while crossing streets. with a unanimous vote of 5 to 0 the san mateo county board of supervisors adopted a resolution asking sacramento to create and pass a law banning distracted walking in a crosswalk but what do people think about the resolution i think it's, they should have something like that yes i think they need it (but why) because you see a lot of kids they be walking across in the sidewalk not paying attention and they don't realize there are in a crosswalk and they don't have the right away sometimes they just walk right into traffic.
i think that's a good law, i think that's good, (but isn't it just one more law to add to the books) well it is, but it's very dangerous for people walking you know and texting and either driving and texting i think that were always on our phones and (put em down) yea we can all walk across the street safely (so you need a law) we don't need a law can't we all just be good (apparently we can't a lot are behaving badly) so yea then i guess we need a law (what do you think?) i think we need a law, that's why a lot of accidents and things happen is because people are behaving badly so yea there would be a law in effect (what do you think?) i think that people are on their phones way to much, i think a lot of accidents can happen people can run into each other cars can hit people i think it's probably a good idea. so now that it's a resolution what's the next step san mateo county supervisor david canepa hopefully, the assembly will take this on which i'm confident they will, the senate and then the governor will sign it by this time in june it will be a state law so san mateo county is in the history books for introducing
a possible new law . we at least time you can't blame me so let it be known that it was stanley roberts and if i had the ability to call it the stanley roberts resolution which it should be we and stanley again you've come through you actually created a law why do i have a sneaky feeling this is going to come back and haunt mecity stanley roberts kron 4 news the oakland a's have a preferred site for their proposed ballparkthey have settled on land near laney college for a 35,000-seat privately financed ballpark to replace the oakland coliseum.
