them killing people and i'm tired of jumping out of my car in front of them because i'mause tired of what they're doing todn the kids on the street.reet > we don't need no more police. it's ludicrous to me you understand because if somebodyif break into my house, somebody breaking into my car, someone hit my child, someone even attempts to do some harm to me, who is the first person you trained all my life. > and the vice chair for d.c. police union spoke before the committee and cone tends that in order to curb crime the newhe chief will have to address the severe manpower crisis within the police department. the union contradicting testimonien term chief new sham gave just daysing a saying theng number of officers on the streer
before several counsel membersee was, quote, convoluted and that union rep saying these numbersee are not what they seem.hey take a listen. in his october 17 testimony thei chief stated that mpd currentlye has a sworn strength of 3,729. however, in the story to be byth fox5 theye stated that a simply inquiry request shows that 4,359 personnel are assigned firems this number doesn't like a drastic change to someone unfamiliar. once you are getting a break the numbers become more worrisome. > now, today fox5 has learnedae that more than 100 people applied for the chief of police position, including severalludi people already within the department.de we've also learned property mayor's office that right now there is absolutely no span too begin the interview process.
building, marina maracco, fox5o, local news.news > can i just ask a quick question? this is a major metropolitan city t, has the mayor's office said why they can't do both searches for a school chancellor and a police chief at the same time? >>reporter: that is a greatgr question, tony. there's a lot of questions behind the mayor's vettingttin process because we've seen inin recent months, now rememberembe she's only been in office aboutc a year and a half and threes a been and lot of questions abouti how the inside the wilson building to people that belong to her department because in these nearly two years we've seen so am of her cabinet and so am people in the important department like the department of general services leave the department and leave with a lot of open-ended questions. no closure in this city. so again a big question as to how she's going to fulfill major positions, chancellor as well as the chief of police.

halfway through a normal pregnancy defied all odds and survived, but now nine months after he was born he is facing another unimaginable obstacle. he has a very rare childhood liver cancer that has a highhigh survival rate, but there is a catch. fox5's alexandra limon explains. >>reporter: this was his blood pressure cuff.pr it's the smallest they make.ke. it was still kind of loose onon him. when it's weighing # ounces. wayne thomas was born early and too small. 23 weeks into the pregnancy andd just before valentine's the happy parents welcomed the most wonderful gift possible, but they got the worst possible prognosis. they say parents who have their children at this gestation, some parents decide to turn off life
we're going to continue. if he hasn't given up on us i'm not going to do that. there's no way.way. > so they fought and so did their fragile, tiny newborn against all odds he made it,it, even though he couldn't breathe on his own and suffered fromfere brain hemorrhages. he has brain bleeds, stage 3 onn one side and stage 4 on the other, which are the worst. blake was so sick his parents couldn't even weeks after he was born. but while his body was weak, his spirit was not. he survived against all odds and obstacles, even when he needed heart surgery.hear a valve in the heart that'sthat open, so what was happening iss blood was pouring into his lungh because the valve of never closed. once again blake not only made it through, he that riffed and
longs in the nicu, blake would soon go home. then came the devastating news. blake has a malignant tumor ofof his liver will involves multiple areas within the liver. the bad news is this type of childhood liver cancer is soso rare only one in every million kids gets it. the good news is it's treatable. but after five rounds of chemohe the only realistic option forpto blake is finding a living donor. and we've been searching for the ability to give him a liver transplant. > we're hopeful that someone will come through and safe our baby's life.ba blake's family is running out of options. they've had several non living possible dough t nations fall through. so now their only option is to find a living donor, perhaps a kind stranger who is willing tol be tested and is a match. now i do want to point out thath
to donate a small portion of their liver which by the wayway does regenerate so the donor would be fine and most likely blake would be, too. his dr. tells me he has a 98 percent chance of surviving if they can find a donor. in the studio, alexandra limon, fox5 local news. > i have had people ask howow they can go about do thatting that. i believe we have information oi our website, fox5 d.c..com and also on our facebook page thatat would give you information about to be a donor. >> it is all there and already a number of you have said you will beaid tested, which is absolutey fantastic. it's on a bunch much ourh facebook pages, so do check that out. > coming up on the other sider of the break, raccoons on the attack. a pennsylvania park policepark officer got hurt fighting off a crazy raccoon.racc it's the latest in a string ever run ins with the animals. they are heating things upup tomorrow morning on fox5.x5.
