6:00 pm
manageable problem, not an epidemic. >> reporter: at a press conference today gascon announced his office needs some help. he's asking for $1 million from the city to build a task force. simultaneously he launched a hotline and a self-reporting car break-in section of the d.a.'s website. >> we want to encourage the community, if you see something, say something. >> reporter: gas cone said this should not be seen as a replacement for a police report. it's more for third-party witnesses. let's say you live nearby and your security camera caught something. we want you to send those pictures in. >> if we were able to prosecute more often, maybe people would think twice before doing it. >> reporter: jennifer wong and her husband own city rent a car. break-ins often leads to them paying more money. >> we pay $500 to fix the windows. it's pretty tough on us. >> reporter: gascon believes most of the break-ins are
6:01 pm
coming from an organized crime group and said if he can figure out who is doing the break-ins, they can solve the problem. >> we know if we can deal with those organizations, we will be able to have a very impactful result in dealing with this crime. >> reporter: in san francisco, susie steimle, kpix5. >> the d.a. has asked the board of supervises for $1 million in funding for the crackdown. late this afternoon b.a.r.t. police telling their side of the story of a deadly police shooting, they released body camera video that captured the incident outside the west oakland station last month. kpix5's joe vazquez has this video, but first a warning because these images are disturbing. joe? >> reporter: pretty graphic, veronica, and we'll show what we can of the footage. they just released this full body camera video here at b.a.r.t. headquarters this afternoon. so it's the camera worn by the police officer, shows his perspective. it begins with a police officer hearing gunshots and running toward them and it ends with the police officer firing
6:02 pm
shots. >> code 33, shots fired west oakland, shots fired. [ running ] [ car honk ] [ shouting ] >> let me see your hands! let me see your hands now! both of you, both of you! let me see your hands, both of you! let me see your hands. [ gunfire ] let me see your hands! let me see your hands now! >> reporter: this was january 3rd, 4 p.m. and the officer runs across the street, approaches two men who are entangled in a fistfight. the b.a.r.t. officer, you can hear him yelling for the men to put their hands in the air and then he quickly opens fire. salene tindall was shot to death. the other man was wounded. >> so he runs and in less than a minute he's confronted with a situation that he did not
6:03 pm
create, a situation that he did not ask to get involved in, but a situation where he felt it was his duty to respond and so he finds himself at seventh and chester with two individuals in front of him struggling for what i believe to be a handgun. here's a picture of it. two individuals struggling for a handgun. it's encircled there in yellow and it looks like one individual is trying to pin that gun to the ground and i believe that the individual that's trying to fight for his life has already been shot by mr. tindall. the individual that's being shot doesn't have his hands up. the individual that's being shot it appears to me has his hands that are concealed. >> reporter: i spoke to mr. tindall's brother yesterday. he says family members were shown this longer clip of video last month. they were over at oakland
6:04 pm
police headquarters, the investigating police division. in fact, it was then that a family member held up a cell phone and shot video off the screen at oakland police headquarters, so police here had to release this today. tindall's brother believes police did not give his brother time to react. >> the officer, he did say it, but he gave them no time to even comply to what he was saying. >> raise your hands! >> reporter: you feel like the officer shot very quickly? >> he certainly shot quickly. he certainly didn't give them any time. >> reporter: clearly a dangerous situation, a police officer running towards gunshots, sees two men fighting. you heard the chief say that he believes there was a gun involved. it is still not clear, though, what precipitated the shots from the police officer. did that gun get pointed at the officer or did he perceive that? we are not directly hearing that from police. they say oakland police may
6:05 pm
eventually release that to the public. joe vazquez, kpix5. for years there has been talk about building a second transbay tube for b.a.r.t. it's been mostly talk until now. b.a.r.t. is seriously studying a new tunnel that would run from alameda to san francisco south of the market area. kpix5's phil matier now on what it will take to make it happen. for a lot of commuters the tube couldn't come fast enough. >> reporter: that's right. right out here in the bay behind us is the tube that now goes from oakland to about a block away at the embarcadero, but now we're talking about adding a secondone somewhere down there on the horizon. the question is why now and at what cost? let's take a look. as anyone on a rush hour train to or from san francisco knows, the b.a.r.t. system is maxing out. >> we're at crush loads today. >> b.a.r.t. carries twice as many people in the peak during the app and-- a.m. and p.m. than the whole bay bridge does. the capacity of b.a.r.t. is what drives the bay area
6:06 pm
economy. >> reporter: and the fear of the economy grinding to a halt because people can't get in and out of the city is a key reason why that after 20 years of talk b.a.r.t. is stepping up spending a whopping $200 million for a second look at a second bay crossing. >> so that we will have some solid proposals versus just lines on the back of a cocktail napkin. >> reporter: but getting serious about a mega dig like a new transbay tunnel means answering tough questions like the route. which side on the east bay? where would it start? where would it land in san francisco? >> south of market in the mission bay area where we see all this growth. is it going to be in the traditional downtown area of san francisco? that's one of the most important questions. >> the downside is cost. >> reporter: early estimates put the price of the project anywhere from 10 to $15 billion, but as house minority leader nancy pelosi warned today, don't look to washington for help. >> the money is just not there. >> reporter: another issue is digging a transbay tube will
6:07 pm
likely mean either digging up or digging under alameda island and what do the folks on that city think about such a big dig at their doorstep? >> it's a balance. you weigh the benefit versus the burden and the long term good for the community i think is just huge. >> you have to think big. you have to plan grandly. you have to think about the future. >> we need to get busy on this now. >> reporter: and one of the reasons is, as i said, hundreds of thousands of people are passing under this tube, the bay, every day. if that tube went down for any reason, we'd be stuck. now it's interesting to note this is going to cost a lot of money and initial estimates are probably low, but b.a.r.t. is making the commitment. they are going to look at it and they promised to have something on the table by the end of the year. so we are definitely entering a new chapter as far as the bay area goes. in san francisco, phil matier, kpix5. back to you guys. >> thank you.
6:08 pm
in a tentative settlement san francisco voters will get to keep control over tall developments along the water front. the state lands commission sued the city last month over proposition b which promises local control of the water front, but in settlement today the commission is dropping the lawsuit on the commission that san francisco agrees to recognize state laws regarding public trust. >> this sort of resolve is one of the clouds hanging over our water front which was the question of whether the voters of this city have a voice on water front development. >> the settlement means that future projects proposed beyond height limits on the waterfront will have to seek approval at the ballot box which can be costly and challenging to developers, but the settlement will insure the state lands commission does not sue again over proposition b. a dispute over big cuts to the school district in east palo alto is getting nasty with a letter from the mayor chastising the school district.
6:09 pm
kpix5's devin fehely joins us now with how the fight affects the students. >> reporter: the school system is expected to approve a budgets with deep cuts and the community -- budget with deep cuts and the community is concerned about what those cuts may mean for students and the quality of their education and very frustrating to parents in what they say should be a time of leadership and unity has become one of feuds and in fighting. the letter by east palo alto mayor accuses the school system of a sneak ambush, an attempt to deflect blame for its budget crisis, but now is not the time for in fighting or finger pointing. >> pointing fingers at each other is not good because they should be focused on the children and not each other and who is to blame. it's more on what to fix. >> reporter: the ravenswood school district faces a $3.3 million shortfall. they sent a letter to the mayor and city council seeking a long
6:10 pm
term financial investment in its struggling child development center. it was not long before the mayor fired off an angry letter in response writing, "your self- inflicted financial crisis and failed leadership does not justify storming and ambushing the city council." the mayor did not return repeated phone calls, text messages and e-mails requesting comment on the war of words, but a district spokesperson says he was disappointed by the letter. >> to the parents and families out there watching this tonight, we completely understand your frustration. we better than anyone understand the value of communities coming together to work together. >> reporter: it's not clear if the city council will invest in the ailing school system, but parents say both sides need to refocus on what matters most. >> it worries me because these kids need school. they need education and meanwhile everybody is fighting over other stuff. they're not thinking about the
6:11 pm
children. >> reporter: now the child development center, which was the focus of the school system's all right to the city, will be transferred to the san mateo office of education. the school system said they were getting money from the state to run that program, but it wasn't enough. there was a half million dollars deficit every year. devin fehely, kpix5. coming up a change in strategy for a south bay school failing to respond to allegations of sexual assault. >> how a state senator facing allegations of sexual misconduct is defending himself. >> a prowler lurks outside a bay area home. the owner watches helplessly from overseas, how the security scare ends.

school... in san jose has come up with a new system.. to handle sexual misconduct accusations. an all girls catholic high school in san jose has come up with a new system to handle sexual misconduct accusations. kpix5's len ramirez tells us this is a big change for the school since administrators insisted for months they were already doing enough to protect the students. len? >> reporter: that's right, veronica. when these types of allegations came out last fall, presentation high school has made a big point of saying that it had sound policies in place to protect students from misconduct and sexual abuse.
6:15 pm
now without admitting any kind of wrongdoing the school has set up a special office specifically designed to handle those types of complaints. the new office for the prevention of bullying, harassment and abuse is being formed on the presentation high school campus amid a string of sexual abuse and misconduct allegations against faculty members spanning decades. >> the new office was formed so that students could have a safe, independent place to report any incidents of misconduct. >> reporter: crisis communication specialists sam singer now represents presentation. >> every teacher, every counselor at the school is a mandated reporter. we want to make sure students feel safe and that they know there are people that they can go to and make reports. >> i think it's unnecessary and a waste of time and money. >> reporter: 1991pres graduate katherine hayne was the first to go forward with an abuse
6:16 pm
accusation against a teacher. >> you don't need a special law in place to follow the law. if a child comes to you with a report of abuse, you call the police. >> reporter: lee hayne said she reported her abuse to the principal, but she was ignored. >> she kept telling me she was working on it, but she never did anything at all. >> reporter: since then about 20 other students have come forward with similar stories, some through a victims website on social media pages. >> there have been some allegations made against presentation high school. many of them have no bearing in reality. >> you ignored past complaints about the sexual abuse. >> reporter: singer says presentation principal mary miller has received threatening phone calls. one recording was turned over to police. victims and their advocates denounced the recording but said the school's new office lacks credibility because it reports to the board of which the current and former principal are members. >> if you really want to have a conduit within your school to
6:17 pm
address these matters, higher a completely independent body which does not answer to the school. >> reporter: now some public schools facing similar allegations have set up a special coordinator, a title 9 coordinator, to handle those types of complaints which is separate from the school or school board. presentation high school here says that it will have its board up and running by may. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix5. state senator tony mendoza was supposed to be at the capitol today but never showed up. he sent a letter. here's what he had to say. >> reporter: the findings of senator mendoza's harassment investigation may be all the talk here at the capitol tonight, but lawmakers here are staying very quiet about how they plan to move forward. >> these are very things to look into. >> reporter: the joint rules committee which assemblyman ken
6:18 pm
cooley chairs making no mention of embattled senator tony mendoza, but lawmakers say disciplinary action is the next step forward. >> it's sad to have the failings of people brought out in such a public way. >> reporter: senator mendoza has also made public his own concerns over his right to due process. in this letter to his senate colleagues, mendoza says he's not seen the final report uncovering details into his alleged misconduct. he also says he is not allowed to attend the senate hearings that determine whether he should be censured, suspended or expelled. lawmakers say the facts are out. according to outside attorneys, the senator likely engaged in unwanted flirtations or sexually suggestive behavior with six women he worked with and they say regardless of how mendoza is disciplined, his case will set precedent in the legislature. >> it is important for our democracy to uphold high standards. >> reporter: but cooley is not commenting on his closer
6:19 pm
