able to take four people into custody. in many cases it is difficult to make arrests because those that open fire can make a speedy give away. >> there is no cameras to catch them and they know it is a quick get away. >> the city council in pittsburg has earmarked one hundred thousand dollars to install the new cameras and once they are operating, officers will be able to access the footage from their phones while they are out in the field. >> again that was alex savage reporting. the police department points out that these cameras are not going to be used to try to catch moving violators. moving violations by drivers as one captain put it, they are not speed cameras. but the cameras could be used as evidence. a state law to get kids into better schools. new at 530. the challenges the bay area father faced to get his kids to
transferred. >> two more states holding democratic primaries. two more results coming in. sharks swarm a popular northern california beach. the reason scientists say we are seeing them so close to shore. tracking the warmth. we are working in low 90s in the inland valleys. how long will they get back after the break.
latest numbers. bernie sanders has a thin lead over hillary clinton. look at that..7% right now. but keep in mind that largest city in kentucky is louisville and the metro area and the votes are not counted and that specific county. jefferson hillary clinton is ahead. so she holds that lead and she could take out and win in kentucky. and that's what the polls say. it has kept her consistently about two percentage points ahead. >> a razor in this thin margin. >> people say he has the momentum so why is he not winning? all of the races are proportional. if he wins by 10 or 15% when it
comes down to the delegates, only gets one or two, he has 300 delegates to catch up to hillary clinton. he would need more than 90% of the remaining delegates to break even and that's highly unlikely. >> according to the real clear politics poll. if you put sanders against trump. sanders is up by 13% and if you put clinton against trump only up five percent. that said sanders is way behind in the delegate count. do you see there being increase the calls for sanders to either drop out now or drop out after the california primary on june 7th or do you see this becoming a fight perhaps at the actual convention? >> this is his argument that he does better head-to-head with donald trump. and keep in mind donald trump has never attacked bernie sanders and has not attacked the same opposition that hillary clinton has and that's why the clinton campaign says that sanders does better head
to hasn't been put to the test. the democrat parties. like feinstein has said he has to think about what he is doing to the party and many are calling to step down the day of the california primary. if he doesn't win in polling hillary clinton is ahead. >> if she is elected president she would tap her husband, bill clinton to be in charge of the economy, something that is the most important thing to voters. she is a female and could be the first female president but i would say i would tap my husby to take over the economy. >> and the language is everything. she said she would tap her husband and she means in an advisory roll. she is not saying she wants him in a cabinet level position. she -- people from the campaign had clarified that. that caught a lot of republicans. most people have fond memories of the clinton administration. the republicans say the economy
is now far different now than the 90s. >> sanders does live in kentucky and he does live in oregon. what does that mean? >> that means that he probably would get an eight delegate lead with hillary clinton. it is all proportionate. if he barely squeaks out a victory and wins in oregon by 15%, that is the projections, he will get within 8 more delegates and she is 300 ahead. back in 2008, hillary clinton was in the exact same position. she won the last ten states and was closer to barack obama. at the convention, who got the nomination? >> right. ross, thank you. fox news anchor megan kelly primetime interview with the likely republican donald trump airs tonight. the first interview with donald trump since they faced off in august. she asked him about his treatment of women.
he was asked if he was trying to be more presidential? >> my impression was donald trump wanted to be liked in this exchange. that he was -- i don't know, just more gentle. and yet there are some very surprising moments in it where the audience will say i feel uncomfortable and what will happen next. trump says he thought kelly was unfair and you can watch the interview right here on ktvu tonight at 8:00. kelley also interviews actors michael douglas and la vern cox and o.j. simpson defense attorney robert shapiro. >> tracking the weather and in monterey bay. we have been down here and just

>> i am amazed at the kelp field. >> monterey is known for its kelp and in the last five years, we have had more wildlife visible in this area. monterey and now off of our coast between the bay that i can remember and look at the clarity of the water. >> it is so pretty. >> isn't that stunning? we could see dolphins and seals and you can see them diving down. see to the bottom right, that shadowy looking thing. that's sardines right there. they are sardine pods and they are moving like birds and something feeds on them that you will see, like i bet there is something feeding on them and they will break apart and they will move and feeding on them right there. and watch -- see it moves like a hive. >> like a beehive. >> this is the monterey aquarium. bill, can i ask you a question?

pressed to find an otter. there are otters all over the kellp field. >> are they normal to be that big? >> that is a really kelp bed. people in santa barbara are trying to get it back. it is a healthy sign and good for the eco system and santa barbara is known for that. >> what does that tell you to lead to that? >> i don't know. it is a shift in something. the base of those sardines, those hundreds of thousands of millions of sardine, that is what draws everything in. the beginning and the bottom of the food chain. there is just a lot of feeding up here now. you see the birds flying. i will get to the five-day forecast. i got excited and i bet you did too. it is stunning. the five-day forecast today was warm and we got up in the low 90s. tomorrow it cools down.

typically not here but maybe because of the warmer water they are mere. >> because of the el niños the white shark has expanded their ways. >> last year people canceled canceling boat tours. >> at love the tour operators suffered economically. >> for those studying the sharks it is just the beginning. >> experts say they would like to tag the sharks and tracking their movements. >> so far they say there have been no problems and no threats to human life. experts say the young ones eat mostly fish. >> the smaller ones are probably okay. but as i say if they are as big as me or bigger i won't hang around too much. >> i won't go out there for a while. >> last year experts say that the sharks were spotted in the area until about december. frank and julie. >> all right.

and that's when they said the law was repealed. >> so we asked the state what is being done. >> there is some question about how old the data is and it establishes the list but it is the list and something that the school district should follow. >> stateside of public instruction tom turlickson says there is confusion. >> there is a bill to change the law because the old testing system that the list was based on is gone. we are moving into a new assessment and new way of defining accountability. >> for now, the law is the law. >> the district and the schools on the list are obligated to inform the parents of the right to transfer. >> he will keep his daughters in private schools but want parents to know that this is an option. >> i hope that the district will follow the law ultimately. the families should be informed
