9:01 am
the marin head lands. welcome to the 9. gasia mikaelian and mike mibach here. a busy newscast. a lot of talk about colin capper day. the question of the day, if you were president of an nfl team, would you cut him after the upcoming charger game? >> and why? >> strictly for his play? >> the sitting down for the national anthem? the second part of the question is very important. >> we are getting a lot of opinions on that. we begin in the east bay, there are a lot of questions about diane stewart who is on administrative leave. the city says she has been placed on leave pending the complying of a personnel investigation. the specific details are being kept confidential. she is 52 years old. she began her law enforcement career with the san jose police department in 1986. >> captain mark kohler has

9:03 am
invitations were sent out and tickets were $25,000. people are used to candidates comeing to town looking for money. >> honestly, i'm not a trump supporter, but you know, i think that's great. if he can do fund raising here, it's here for him, good for him. >> some hillary clinton signs had been placed along the roadway the day before, but we did not see protesters outside the trump fundraiser. donald trump is expected to lay out his new plans on immigration. in recent weeks, he has repeated his promise to build the wall between the u.s. and mexico, but he has appeared to back off the use of deportation of force to remove all undocumented immigrant ifs the country. today, the ceo of hewlett
9:04 am
packard will be campaigning for hillary clinton. they appeared together at private fundraisers. you will remember she endorsed clinton over fellow republican donald trump. while colin kaepernick continues to deal with the controversy of his decision, there is more controversy about how he will make the team. >> this complicates the team's decision on what to do with colin kaepernick. >> brian flores joins us with more. >> reporter: this is a big talker amongs mike mibach and sal castaneda, the biggest niner fans out there. people want to know whether or not colin kaepernick is going to stay with the team or be cut. the 9ers have to make the decision by saturday. really, cap could be cut by the end of the week. we'll have to wait and see. that is because blaine has had a pretty good training camp so far. it appears he might be the
9:05 am
starting quarterback. but by the end of this week, the niners have to make that decision. is the distraction of the national anthem issue too much for the team to handle? the team also faces a major pr problem with either decision they make. do they keep him or risk upsetting fans who are against his protest? chronicle reporter chuck told us many season ticketholders told the team they are not happy with this especially after all the money they spent on seats. then there is kaepernick's contract. he is guaranteed close to 12 million this year. if he gets injured the niners remain on the hook. some think this may be a ploy for him to stay on the team. we did speak with chad dewey. talking about cap's future for the team. >> now, you could or they could also look at it from this standpoint, we should have gotten rid of him when he had a chance. when he went to denver, almost had a trade with the broncos. so they may say we are going to cut our ties now.
9:06 am
if you have a guy on the roster who is not producing and not going to play, he is creating some form of distraction, do you want that with a football team? chip kelly is trying to get off to a good start in san francisco. >> reporter: there earlier reports, one being from fox sport's jay glazer who says cap may be released before the start of the season, chip kelly disputes that. the team could keep him but deactivate him each week. meaning he would be on the team but never play. all of this is speculation, guys. a lot of possibilities. we just have to wait and see what the niners do by the end of the week. >> thank you brian flores. our question of the day deals on this very issue. the decision facing the 49ers at the end of the week. we asked you if you could make the decision, would you keep colin kaepernick on the 49ers? why or why not? patrick mckenny tweeted us get rid of number 7. he has
9:07 am
repeatedly done nothing on the field. it is too bad his release will look tied to his refusal to stand. >> there one tweeted i would keep cap. it is not mandatory to stand so why let him go. >> and he should stay or go based only on his performance. >> keep checking your responses throughout the newscast. more responses coming up at 9:30. we appreciate you using tvuthe9 on twitter. more on this controversy over colin kaepernick and his refusal to stand with the national anthem caused waves. >> kaepernick called into question the amount of training the police officers have. >> you have lures going to school for six years, lawyers. but you don't have to have the same amount of training as a
9:08 am
cosmotologist if you are a cop. >> so they invited kaepernick to come and see for himself what they go through. here is pokes person jd nelson. so what sparked this off? >> well, the act of the anthem is its own separate issue. he certainly has his right to not stand if that is what he chooses to do. we were more concerned with the fact of what he said about training police officers so we thought to get a dialogue going, we would invite him out. after we put this on facebook, it clearly took off. a lot of people have paid attention to it. >> any response from kaepernick himself? >> it has not even been a day yet. >> how long does it take a person to become a police officer from where they are just a civilian. how many months or how much time before they are riding around in a control cart? >> each agency is different.
9:09 am
for our agency because we are a sheriff's office, you have to go through an extensive background check which takes a long time. and we have a 28 week academy. one of them just started yesterday. and then you have going to have to go for us to our jail. you will spend two years there, have a jail training officer and then you will get assigned perhaps to the courts or perhaps to the control of what you are going to do. another 14 weeks of training. so, to say somebody just has six months and then they are out running around ... >> at least for your department that is not true. >> so law enforceability agencies have been in the spotlight over the last year. when an athlete or a high profile individual comes out and brings this up, you just shake your head? do you feel like it hurts what you guys are doing day in and day out when somebody of his stature does that? >> i think for us, we just want
9:10 am
to clear the air on these things. if you are going to make statements. and a lot of people make statements. are you going to be a person who makes a statement and does nothing about it or ... are you going to accept our offer? we have a lot of people that levy criticisms. they monday morning quarterback us for everything. so, are you going to expand the dialogue? >> i got this letter they wrote to the nfl commissioner basically asking for an apology. do you want an apology for kaepernick? >> we have a thing about people demanding things. parents and judges can demand things. everybody else, it is is a request. he doesn't have to apologize. i think, we could learn from his experiences and he could learn from ours. >> what about the issue of
9:11 am
police mistreating citizens? obviously, not all police do, but there have been well documented cases of some police officers not treating people well. i think that is what he was speaking to. do you think his point on that is something that wouldn't have been heard if he didn't stand up? in other words, his protest brought this out even more? >> well, that is certainly a good argument. you could go all the way back to the fist raising in 1968. did that expand the dialogue of people? here we are today. had he not done that, i'm sure i wouldn't be here getting the attention that we are getting. we are not pointing the fingers at him. we are talking about this getting the discussion going. >> in a broad sense, every time you say to a professional i could do your job, everybody's job is to make it look easy. you don't know. it is like the duck on the water, right? cool and confident. i don't need your paddling. so in that sense, is that what you are trying to get across?
9:12 am
>> exactly. and that's not just true with our profession. everybody thinks they can teach better than everybody else. or, if i was a quarterback, if i was a quarterback, why did you make that pass? but you are not the person on the field seeing what you see at that particular moment. so yes. that is a true statement. >> okay, jd nelson. thank you for joining us. coming up next, a major ruling that could mean trouble for apple. why the company could be on the hook for billions of dollars. >> also, more information about that chaos at lax we reported from sunday night. up next, the sights and sounds that led to a panicked crowd running for safety. ty. how can this have been washed 12 weeks ago andme

9:16 am
tax rate substantially less than other businesses. while it is 12.5% in ireland, investigators revealed in ireland apple paid 1% tax on european profits and less other years. it appears the european union is using apple as a test case. >> they could do the same thing to google or a variety of large tech firms that have shifted their tax base to ireland to get favorable treatment. >> reporter: last year, fiat and starbucks has to pay millions in taxes as well. both apple and the irish government are saying they will appeal the decision by the commission. apple is concerned though that the union's ruling would hurt jobs and investments in europe. reporting from cupertino, janine de la vega, ktvu fox 2 news. now for more of the
