11:03 pm
an inch. san jose got more than a tenth of an inch of rainfall today. and today was round two. there's a round number three and it is also headed right toward the bay area. we will detail that and a new outlook that says we may be wet for a very long time. >> sounds great. thanks paul. a man arrested for drunk driving and then this happens. >> take him taze him. >> tonight, jailhouse video shows sonoma county deputies going at a suspect. they beat him so seriously that he had to be taken to the er. the man hadn't seen the video until juliette showed it to him. juliette? >> reporter: ken, it is a 29 minute video. it is pretty tough to watch. even esa wroth could only watch a few minutes of it. it happened in the jail and the sheriff's department says that use of force was justified. >> i couldn't breathe.
11:04 pm
i was like dying literally. >> reporter: the video is difficult to watch. especially for esa wroth who was tazed more than 20 times for reportedly resisting arrest. >> face down, handcuffed, being tazed with two guys on hi head and two guys on my legs. >> reporter: the video was taken by jail staff and it goes on for 29 minutes. what started as a dui escalated into charges of assault on a correctional deputy and resisting a peace office. >> it is torture. it is absolutely torture. >> reporter: the case goes to trial in a few weeks. esa wroth's attorney says the deputies in the video should be prosecuted, not his client. >> he was shocked with real electrical wires. over 20 times. and beaten savagely. both of his arm wrenched out of his sockets. bruised and bloody. >> that was after they threw me down. >> reporter: photos show the tazer marks and a black eye
11:05 pm
that deputies say esa wroth had before he was arrested. >> it is not a pretty video as force typically is not. >> reporter: but the sheriff's department says the level of force was appropriate. but 29 minutes of it? >> that's a long time. >> it is a long time. the force lasted as long as the resistance lasted. >> but he was in handcuffs. >> the handcuffs didn't prevent him from biting or grabbing someone's tazer. >> reporter: esa wroth say it is video is hard for him to watch. even two years after it happened. >> they are hired to protect people. so how is this right? >> reporter: esa wroth's trial begins december 11. jury selection begins in the next few weeks. juliette goodrich, kpix5. another security scare outside the white house
11:06 pm
tonight. this time a woman with a handgun. plain closed secret service agents spotted her with a nine millimeter near the white house fence. she is 23 years old from michigan. and now, under arrest. all that was happening while the president was inside the white house. he was giving a televised address to the nation. detailing his plan to help 5 million illegal immigrants stay in the country. he also had this message for republicans who promised tonight they will make him pay. >> to those members of congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better or question the wisdom of me acting where congress has failed, i have one answer. pass a bill. >> walk us through how we got here. >> reporter: well liz, the president used his executive power. he sidestepped congress, or more accurately, the republicans. the democrat controlled senate passed an immigration reform bill, but john boehner refused to bring the bill to a vote in
11:07 pm
the house. that is why the president is going it alone. >> we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. >> reporter: and tonight, the president's plan will shield 5 million more immigrants, all currently here illegally, from deportation. so who is eligible? parents of children born here. and people who can prove they have been in the u.s. for more than five years. >> in you register, pass a criminal background check, and you are willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you will be able to apply to stay in the country temporarily without fear of deportation. >> reporter: the executive action grants work permits and expands the dream program for immigrants brought to the u.s. illegally as children. >> these people, our neighbors, our classmates, our friends. they did not come here in search of a free ride or an easy life. they came to work and study and serve in our military.
11:08 pm
and above all, contribute to america's success. >> reporter: the president's plan will now provide a path to citizenship or offer healthcare tax credits but the president is still in for a long battle with republicans. >> the only way you can do this properly is have congress enact the laws, the immigration law in which congress is in the process of doing, and then have the president enforce those laws. >> reporter: so, what can the republicans do? we are hearing anything from shutting the government down to withholding funding for immigration services. liz, the president heads to las vegas tomorrow. he plans to officially sign that executive order. >> that's right. he will be with harry reed to is the senate majority leader. but mitch mcconnell says swift action in january. >> we will be watching. >> thanks betty. immigrants will be able to start applying for deportation deferrals in the spring. meanwhile, in california, one- and-a-half million immigrants will be eligible for this.
11:09 pm
the most of any state. texas is second. 743,000 people there. there are still about a million illegal immigrants in california who won't be eligible, but? january, joe vasquez shows us a lot of them will be able to do something legally and that is drive. >> reporter: look closely. the new category of california drivers license will have this notation. federal limits apply. in january, it will be available for the first time ever for undocumented immigrants. that is who crowded into a standing room only commute meeting in redwood city just moments after the president's speech on immigration. >> we can't get certain government services. you cannot get on an airplane. >> reporter: they are just completing an 11-week drivers ed course. they will be some of the first in line for licenses. carla figuroa is undocumented from mexico. her children were born here. >> i'm happy. [ laughter ] yeah.
11:10 pm
>> you can get a drivers license. >> reporter: and now the president says you can stay without deportation. >> no deforration. thank you so much. >> reporter: many of the folks in this room will not qualify directly from president obama's immigration plan. still, they will be able to emerge from the shadows simply by getting their drivers license. >> now, they can be driving without fear. if they see a police officer, they can show the drivers license. >> reporter: they drive to work everyday all over california, but because they are afraid of being deported, most have no insurance and never learned the rules of the road. after a car accident, it is off the case they abandon their cars. >> it is very important the people drivers are very well documented. that they know the rules of the law. that is a way to protect not only themselves but everyone else. >> joe vasquez, kpix5. and the dmv will open a thousand more new employees in
11:11 pm
january. they will open pop up offices. a bay area girl missing more than a week. tonight, her family tells us why they are afraid you are looking at the latest victim of sex trafficking though she is only 12 years old. >> and these books are showing up in thousands of mailboxes all across the bay area. what are they and who is sending them? we find out tonight. >> it is one of the most dangerous jobs in the bay area and these guys do it for free. we dive in for a rare look at this elite team helping police solve some of the toughest cases out there.

11:14 pm
bible. >> reporter: it says the mass mailing costed $250,000. the church is asking for donations. as for why we were targeted? many of the people of san francisco may not know it, but they desperately need the eternal hope that jesus offers. >> it is not a bad idea. they can recruit. being gay doesn't mean you can't believe in christ. >> i think it is ridiculous. can't blame them for trying i guess? [ laughter ] >> reporter: but for some, the environment tally conscious bay area, the controversy is not in the pages of the end time book, but where the books will end their time. >> mine will be in the trash. >> reporter: andria borba, kpix5. tonight, in what sounds like something out of a movie, two sisters notice people trapped in the second floor of a burning san jose apartment complex. they took dramatic action. they dragged a mattress below the window. three people were holding out a railing barely app inch thick. at first, no one wanted to jump, but then they did.
11:15 pm
all three survived. now when it comes to rescuing people underwater, that is a different story. we are getting a rare look at a team of volunteer divers. juliette goodrich suited up with them to see what it takes to find people or evidence in the dark murky waters of the bay. >> reporter: they are alameda county's dive team. they aren't diving to rescue. they are diving to recover. recover bodies or evidence from crimes. two years ago, a man fell to his death in a water filled rock quarry in oakland while looking for his pet cat. diver mike whitehurst will never forget finding his body. >> you find another human being, it is, i held him very tightly. i wasn't going to let go of him and bring him home. >> reporter: other high profile operations, the recovery of

lacy peterson's body and unborn baby. the search for the semiautomatic handgun used to shoot ten people. i got to experience firsthand what it is like to dive and search for something in waters you can't see in. >> down you go. >> reporter: before making that nighttime dive, i underwent training in a pool at coast guard island. divers wear harness and are tethered to a rope guided by a tinder on dry land. first, i had to locate a dummy and put it into a body bag with another diver. then ... >> i'm a little nervous. >> reporter: then they blacked out my mask as i searched blindly to recover a fake gun. then, the real test. >> juliette, tell us you are okay. >> i'm okay. >> reporter: a nighttime dive in the san leandro estuary. it is pitch black. all i can do is rely from the
11:17 pm
cues from the tinder tracking my every move. i have a safety diver nearby. >> you can see her rope, but not her hand on it. it is completely 0 visibility. >> reporter: four pulls on the rope signal go left. three pulls go right. >> you have the object juliette? >> yes i do. >> you have to stay with it while you wait for the other diver to arrive. it is a little difficult. you are with a cadaver in a complete blackout situation. and you know, sometimes, a lot of things run through your head. >> reporter: while this was a recovery drill, it still felt very real. you can't see, and you are holding onto what feels like a real body. and this type of recovery can bring the necessary closure to families. >> we do it because we lover diving and we do it because we want to give something back to the community. it is important. >> reporter: in alameda county,
