tonight there are allegatons standford health center knowingly harbored a predator. today -- kron4's maureen kelly talked with some of the people suing. they claim there had been red flags raised about the now jailed molestor that were ignored by stanford. its not okay and they shouldn't be able to get away with it that's the voice of the mother of victim robert doe.her voice has been altered to protect her and her son's identity.but we can't alter the anger and guilt she feels about what happened to her son. 16 year old robert doe.went to stanford hospital's outpatient surgery on march 31st 2015.and while knocked out from anesthesia.was fondled by medical technician robert lastinger. in june, lastinger was sentenced to one year in jail pleading no contest to the sexual battery of the teen and three other male patients. an attorney has now filed lawsuits for two of the victims.he is claiming other employees saw prior instances of lastinger acting inappropriatly and looked the other way. he engaged in lewd conduct in the or, there were nurses talking about how he had propensity to fondle of patients who were under anthestia and yet stanford did nothing and when an institution does nothing and predators in our midst are allowed to prey and that's what happened here.
he belives there are other victims out there. it's unconsciable that people have to fear for their job and as a consequence do not report what is a criminal act on a minor that will stay with that minor for the rest of his life. attorney angela alioto represents george baez.a now former stanford health care employee that says he was one of the whistleblowers that launched the investigation against lastinger.his reaction to being laid off one year later? shocked on some level.it was hard he's now suing claiming
retailation. spokesperson for stanford health care says any claim that shc knew that robert lastinger was a predator and did nothing is false. they maintain as soon as they learned of the inappropriate conduct by their technician, they removed him, launched an investigation and contacted local authorities. they also say that baez's termination has nothing to do with his minor involvement with any investigation. maureen kelly kron4 news coming up how long you been taking that short cut? ahhh we just take it when ever we need to ever seen a train come through here no/yea there are many ways to get to netflix, one is on your computer and the other, well let's just say is very dangerous i'll explain in the next edition of people behaving badly >> pam:then. police thought it was a hoax. but -- the crime turned out to be very real. tonight -- why the victims are *not at all relieved. even though the suspect in the case has pleaded guilty. and next. one transit agency getting ready to tell people to "hang it up". why they want to stop people from making calls on trains.
>> pam:new tonight -- be quiet or get off. a new train line set to launch by the end of the year. will shuttle passengers back and forth from san rafael to santa rosa. a welcome addition for many communters. but there's a catch. >> steve:as kron four's philippe djegal reports. the s-m-a-r-t train board of directors is on the brink of banning passengers from talking on cell phones. >>:nats- crew walking down track. right now, the train stations are empty. just maintanance crews checking the tracks. nats- "and, that circuit to be." making daily test runs from san rafael to santa rosa. the trains look ready. inching closer to a full launch of sonoma-marin area rail transit -- or smart.

zane says she will vote to approve the code of conduct policy. and, hopes the rest of the smart board is on the same page. sot- "i like being the first at trying something new. i think its innovative. i am actually shocked at how many people said this is great -- go for it. whether the rest of the board feels that way, we'll see." in sonoma county, philippe djegal kron four news. someone is placing anti- semitic fliers on cars in a bart parking lot.
the fliers. found on several cars at the lafayette bart station on thursday. contain anti-semitic statements. bart officials tell kron four. it cannot stop someone from placing fliers on cars, because bart is a public agency. and speech is a protected first amendment right. bart is investigating the matter saying. a rider recently complained, the person responsible for the fliers has made threatening statements. and if true. that is a crime. >> grant:now to the latest racially charged police shooting. tonight, the mother of the san diego area shooting victim. is explaining why her son was behaving erratically, before police killed him. >> steve:we're also learning more about the 38-year-old black man.alfred olango.and his history with immigration officials. grant lodes is here with all the new details. >> grant:today we learned immigration and customs enforcement officials tried to deport him. twice. the 38-year-old came to the united states from uganda in 1991. the first attempt to deport olango came in 2002 after he was convicted on drug charges. the second came in 2009 following a firearms conviction. but both times uganda refused to take him. and there are a couple of other
twists to this case. today his mother said olango was not mentally ill but was having a nervous breakdown. we have also learned details about one of officers involved in the shooting. the officer has been accused of misconduct in the past. he was sued for sexual harassment by a fellow officer. september is national rail safety month and kron 4 has been looking at issues related to rail safety. and apparently viewers have gotten into the act as well a viewer emailed us about a shortcut in the south bay just outside of netflix headquarters so we sent stanley roberts to check it out how long you been taking that short cut? ahhh we just take it when ever we need to ever seen a train come through here no/yea once or twice a week there are many ways to get to netflex, one is through your computer and the other, is through this union pacific train trestle . nats: ambiance and if you hang out for only a short period of time you will
see people taking the shortcut across highway 85 to get from one building to the other and it's not on or two people its dozens of people. in fact i almost started to believe that maybe this was an approved passage way i mean you walk through this archway and see this dirt path at the end of the dirt path are these round concrete pavers nats: ambiance
however it's not a permitted pathway and walking on the trestle is considered trespassing . so if someone were to get hit by a train it would be there fault but you see people on the phone and walking with their dog or even just smoking a cigarette there is an opening on th4e other side for people to enter and exit nats: ambiance what i noticed is there are plenty of signs for cars like don't stop on tracks and a lighted sign when a train approaches but there are not signs that read keep off the tracks, or no trespassing it's the same across the street this guy is talking on his cell phone . what could possibly go wrong nats: how often do the trans come through ik havent seen it in days what you probably didn't know is .it's a misdemeanor to walk on train tracks and even if you haven't see a train on the tracks in three years there could be one 10 minutes from now the fine for walking on the track in santa clara county is 1000 dollars and a mandatory court apprerance . personally i rather use one of these to travel back and forth in los gatos stanley roberts
