of an unarmed black teenager. the shooting sparked protests all over the country and today officers are bracing for the worst. good afternoon. >> an announcement is expected any moment on whether to charge officer darren wilson for shooting michael brown. barricades are in place outside the courthouse preparing for any protests that may arise. >> i have expectations that things will go well. that things will be peaceful. that they will be orderly. >> dozens of protesters held peaceful demonstrations near st. louis last night. missouri's governor declared a state of emergency last week, a move that has been criticized for adding to the tension. here's a live look over uc berkeley where students are beginning a walkout to protest the proposed tuition hikes. they've already occupied wheeler hall on campus for several days now. the march that is just starting today will move through downtown, with stops at berkeley high and city college.
the students say they will keep protesting until the uc tuition increases are scrapped. the hikes go into effect and takes pairs end up paying part of the bill. taxpayers. as tuition goes up so does taxpayer-funded finance aid. the number for cal grants rose even as the university budget was cut during the recession. governor brown who opposes the new hikes reminded the minded regents about that last week. the panda boston bound? or is he? >> dennis o'donnell joins us with more on pablo sandoval's new deal. your sources were telling you last week this deal was close? >> i thought it was close and it seems to be headed in that direction. i don't know if it's going to change. certainly could. there's no john hancock on the dotted line but pablo's camp said last week there was a 90% chance of him going to boston. that appears to be the case though the red sox haven't officially announced the deal.
according to john haman, sports insider, a credible baseball reporter. the red sox and sandoval agreed to a $100 million deal. that us more than the giants original offer though i was told the giants would counter. larry er says he hasn't heard that a deal was done. >> no response from the agent in terms of a decision. we've made multiple offers and we're hopeful to bring him back. >> pablo will reportedly join another big name free agent, ramirez in a blockbuster deal from austin. pablo sandoval is the most popular giants third baseman in san francisco history. if he gets a fourth ring it appears he will have to come in another city. >> how about pablo's relationship with the giants? is it good? in i think he felt slighted because of the weight issues and during the contract negotiations last spring.
to me the giants had after exclusive window following the world series to negotiate only with pablo sandoval. if the giants really wanted a deal and pablo really wanted to stay in san francisco it seems to me they would have got that deal done. they didn't. >> the fans are going to be disappointed. ryan talked to fans at the ballpark. for many he's already a former giant. the sox signing apparently has polarized panda fans. ryan? >> reporter: that's right. a lot of mixed feelings. some upset, frustrated, some understanding, they get it. they say that, well, pablo deserves a lot of money and this is a competitive process and he deserves to try and get that money. but a lot of folks, they don't want to believe that the deal is done. you heard dennis there talking about how it is not completely signed or a done deal. what i found interesting in the team store -- there's only one rack of pablo sandoval number 48 jerseys inside.
no panda hats inside. that may not mean anything but looks like the team is waiting to see how this free agency period plays out. pablo has been a vital part of the giants' three rings in a five-year run. reactions vary from understanding to concerned about who will man that hot corner next year. >> just devastated. devastated. like no! not pablo! >> money still prevails. he has to do what is best for himself. this may be his one chance for a big payout. >> he hit three home runs in the world series. i don't know what it's going to be like without him. >> reporter: that 10-year-old brian from antioch, he says pablo is his 5-day forecast player. was his favorite player. now he's crushed. poor kid. he says his next favorite player? next in line? joe panuc. >> he will be around for a

entered the house, one brandished a gun. they stole money and slipped out a back door. sheriffs' deputies arrived. so far no arrests. for the second time a barely 3 months, san francisco police are investigating the murder in the boze triangle area. just after 12:30 this morning a group of five men approached three men. the victim was robbed of a cell phone, wallet, backpack, shot in the torso. and died on the way to the hospital. police have not provided the identity of the victim yet. the death follows the murder of another man just two blocks away back in august. developing news -- the chp says driver fatigue may have played a role in a deadly tour us about crash in shasta county. one passenger killed, dozens injured when the bus ran off i- 5 and overturned north of reading yesterday. five people remain hospitalized. this passenger is one of the fortunate ones. >> he may have fallen asleep a little bit.
i'm not sure. i don't know. a man lost his life. >> a little earlier in the day on the same trip the bus hit a denny's restaurant. that mishap took a chunk off the side of the roof. gearing up for the holidays can be tough for some families. how the 49ers are helping one food bank make sure everyone gets a little holiday cheer. >> you're looking at one of the most vulgar phrases in the vietnamese language and it's on a california license plate. how did that happen? >> the very busy holiday week ahead. a lot of folks doing traveling. we got sun, a little rain in the forecast, that's coming up.
a driver we spotted in east san jose is going to have to get a new license plate. >> only on 5 this afternoon, kit explains why. >> one of the foulest and most vulgar phrases in the vietnam languages -- it means blank your mother. if you have trouble visualizing that here's help from the dmv. we spotted this license plate san jose. the i should be a y but you get the idea. the driver claimed it was an innocent phrase and we played along. >> what does your license plate mean? >> it's a -- means i love your mom. >> really? >> reporter: we showed it around san jose. >> my gosh. >> reporter: home to more than 130,000 vietnamese people. more than any other city in the country. >> terrible. very terrible. >> reporter: reaction ran the gamut from disgust to high
fives. >> mamai? >> i said to myself wow, how could anybody miss this? >> you speak vietnamese? >> yes. >> so therefore if you have someone that doesn't speak that language and they are trying to figure it out you can see the difficulty there is, in understanding some of those words. >> reporter: a representative from dmv joined us via skype from the sacramento headquarters. when it comes to personalized license plates the department gets 500 application as day. drivers must explain and justify the meaning of the phrase and researchers check it across 150 languages. using special dictionaries, on- line translators, even the white house's drug lingo database to weed out hidden references. when they slip through the department relies on public complaints. >> you saw one in fact in the san jose area and you notified the dmv. it's people like you that help us make sure that the license plates that are out there are
acceptable. to society as a whole. >> reporter: the dmv errs on the side of caution. for example a firefighter who uses the jaws of life to cut victims from wrecks was denied "account you out" because it's a gang term for murder. and the infamous "i love tofu," denied because it can be read as "i love to f-u." some are recalled every year. this one included. back in san jose the dmv has begun the process to recall that offensive plate. >> you know what is amazing about that story? they were coming home from a san jose football game with a couple of people from channel 5, whoa! and pulled out their video camera. >> i see license plates and try to figure them out but i wouldn't know that. >> good eye. >> neat story.
