threats. i was reluctant to say i'm doing to give in to those people. but our chamber only holds 225 people and we're right next to the police department. >> we don't know who's still in town. there are people who are still focused on violence and we don't want that to happen. >> reporter: protesters shut down 880 twice as hundreds got on the freeway to stop traffic. they arrested 200 people. some that won't be getting any time soon because they are being held on $50,000 bail. they allegedly committed such crimes as assaulting police officers. city council member jesse erragin gave me this print out that indicates the mayor had no unilateral right to cancel the meeting. and he opposes the move. they have a meeting scheduledded tomorrow night that will go on as planned and

5:04 pm
but the property is innocent people who have nothing to do with the loss of life. >> reporter: brown marched for civil rights with martin luther king in the 1960s and says that marks no resemblence of what has happened. >> we didn't just join to raise hell, but we wanted to bring our brothers and sisters forward. >> reporter: that change includes revising the grand jury system and better sensitivity training for police officers. >> we don't intent to paint every policeman with the same brush. but every department in the country has paint on it. >> reporter: still some people we spoke with said that perhaps the rowdy nature of the recent

5:08 pm
>> david, i know after the death of the little girl, uber expanded its insurance policy to include drivers whether or not they have a rider in the car with them. if they're logged on they're now covered by that insurance. >> reporter: that's right. they have made some moves in the wake of this accident and other accidents across the country. the state department of public utilities has closely followed that. there are other organizations that say that's not enough and there needs to be more done. >> thank you, david. uber faces charges in its home city. the da announced the civil consumer protection lawsuit against uber today. amongst the allegations is that uber operating illegally at
5:09 pm
airports and is not testing its app for accuracy in calculating customer fares. >> uber has refused to comply with laws that protect consumers from fraud. >> gascon says they will agree to make changes and pay a fine. side car is still under investigation. the senate intelligence committee today released a highly anticipated report on how terror suspects were tortured by the cia in the wake of the september 11th terrorist attacks. mike emanuel tells us the documents show most of the enhanced interrogation techniques were ineffective. >> the cia mislead the white house, congress and the american public about interrogation techniques use on terror suspects according to a long held senate intelligence
5:10 pm
committee report. >> it's been very difficult. but i believe documentation and the findings inclusions will make clearer how this program was morally legally and administratively misguided. >> reporter: five years in the making, the report exposes a brutal look at the cia and tactics used after the september 11 attack. they found they are often mishandled and led to no useful intelligence. >> torture produces more misleading information than actionable intelligence. >> reporter: records show that some detainees were not allowed to sleep for weeks and told they were going to be killed in their sleep. many of the republicans in the
5:11 pm
senate intelligence committee viewed the report as flawed and put out their own document criticizing senator feinstein's study. >> sometimes good people make mistakes. we have corrected the problem, we have interrogation techniques now that i think can protect the nation and live within our values. >> ahead of the reports released the obama administration stepped up security at u.s. facilities abroad to protect against any retaliatory strikes. on capitol hill, mike emanuel, fox news. what's your reaction to the report and do you agree with the findings, doctor. >> i agree with some of the findings. i do believe it's true that torture is an elegitimate way of getting information.
5:12 pm
it's a problem we're still living with today. i also think that the whole question of whether or not torture works is the wrong question. the real question is are we willing to live as a country that values absolute safety above everything else that matters to us. >> dr. gordon that actually leads to a follow up question. here. when you look at these terrorists they don't play by any rules, they have no problem flying planes into buildings. if they're not playing by rules why should we play by rules? >> that's such a good question. the reason is we're not terrorists. and if we allow ourselves to stoop to the level of the terrorists then there's really nothing to choose between us. the big prize is that we remain a country that is governed by laws not by fear. a country that is governed by human values not by terror. we let the terrorists win when we descend to their level. >> what's to stop us from saying, okay we won't do any
5:13 pm
torture here in the united states, but we're going to send these prisoners to other countries where they do allow torture. >> another good question. and in fact, there isn't anything to stop us right now. when president obama issued his executive order in january of 2009, he ended the so called enhanced interrogation techniques. but he did not end what is called extraordinary rendition, sending people some where else for interrogation. and in fact, the u.n. committee against torture is very concerned about the standard that the u.s. applies when we still, which we still do send people to other countries for interrogation. and it was part of their report issued last week about ways that the u.s. is not complying with our duties under the convection of torture. >> thank you for speaking with

5:20 pm
river flooding or things like that. but there will be inconveniences. downed trees, there will be a high wind warning in effect thursday morning. maybe 8-inches of rain in the santa cruz mountains. this is over a couple of rains. and up in the russian river basin the they could see several inches too. if there was something behind it like a big storm behind it then you would have to start worrying. looks like this thing is not one and done but close to that. it's a big one and it has a lot of moisture streaming in. you can see the track of it now. and it's trajectory. i always look at it as a fire hose. it's the jet stream. but if you're watching your car, and this thing is jet streaming right at us, what's happening now is high clouds are coming in ahead of this lower level moisture. we're not seeing rain yet. we'll probably start to see showers when the atmosphere gets real real wet all the way
5:21 pm
to the surface. spinning the radars right now. you're not seeing really anything. some green showing up there. i suspect that's not a -- that's a false return there in san jose. could be a little bit of drizzle though. i wouldn't be surprised. but the idea being tomorrow night this time i'll be showing you significant rain occurring around point arena at this time. by about 10:00 tomorrow night, we're looking at heavy rain potentially in santa rosa now. the new models suggest a little heavier rain earlier in the evening. the main hit still, late, well actually early thursday morning through mid-morning. so thursday morning right. so the 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 something like that. this is the forecast for tomorrow. you see the drizzle showing up. this is wednesday afternoon. tomorrow not that dissimilar from today except the clouds. and this thing starts to shove into the marina. we're going to see winds down to sea level maybe 40, 50, maybe 60 miles per hour. system rolls in, it brings us quite a bit of rain.
5:22 pm
one to 4-inches for urban areas. that's a big deal because of how we say in the urban areas you're talking about you know, no run off. not easily getting into the creeks. arizona is set up very well for drainage. but when you get to a town like san jose and you get two inches of water in a few hours you're going to be ponding and minor flooding. i suspect this is what's going to be going on thursday morning. i would try to avoid that commute. it's not going to be the early morning commute. it's going to be the mid- morning commute. going into labor because she is stuck in traffic while protesters are blocking the freeway. how this new mom and her baby are doing tonight. and we learned she wasn't the only person who needed help. what emergency recordings reveal about the response. now to julie haener who's in the newsroom with what we're

we're getting a new look at just how intense the battle of the bay was for the players last weekend. that was collin kaepernick and seal moore getting into it at halftime. after the exchange you just saw and heard, moore called kaepernick a few choice words. it all started when moore sacked kaepernick. of course the raiders went on to win the game. seal moore posted this photo of himself and kaepernick on
5:47 pm
instagram. you can see the caption, there's a difference between boys and men. talk about fighting words. i spoke with tmz. we talked about harvey's take on it all. >> we got it on camera and it was right back at you for collin. because collin came out and started talking smack on seal. and said i'm coming for you. and seal just comes right back and i can't tell you what he said. what seal said to collin because it was really filthy. but it was also, he was good in his word because the raiders ended up winning 24-13. and then moore instagrammed. remember oakland does not have a great word and they still beat san francisco handily. and morris instagramed afterthe game there's a difference between boys and men chump.
5:48 pm
so this turned into an incident. somebody held kaepernick back. >> this happened during halftime. the game was tied at that point. do you think what had to do with what was happening on the field or themselves and their egos. >> i think it was all about the game. because it was tied i think that's why, again collin started it by saying, i'm coming for you. and that just set morris off. that's when things got crazy. oakland had the fire power. >> so far collin kaepernick hasn 't had anything to say about that video or instagram picture. a baby boy born on a flight shortly after take off. >> i heard a baby crying, like a gurgling sound, and i thought
5:49 pm
a baby had too much milk or something. and i thought, there's no babies on this flight. and i turned around and a woman said, she just gave birth. >> reporter: the flight was headed to phoenix. it was diverted to los angeles so the mom and baby could be checked out. we're told they're doing just fine. what are the chances that both a doctor and nurse would be on board. >> i know late in my term, i wouldn't even cross a bridge. let's go to bill martin. i like that guy's double take. like what there is a baby. >> i am thinking about myself in that situation. it wouldn't be pretty. it would be uncomfortable to bring a baby on the airplane. we have some rain coming up. and it's not going to impact your weekend just your thursday. this system starts to click on inland. it's a nice looking system. we mentioned it last night.

5:51 pm
rain in mendecino. as we get into midnight it starts raining toward san rafael. down to bodega bay and steinson beach. here's what's interesting to note. look at this line right here. that doesn't look like much. watch it intensify. that tells you a lot. this thing really puts itself together and at 7:00 a.m. maybe 6:30, 7:00 a.m. at least the way it goes now. slams into the north bay and you will know this line that's like a squall line in the midwest. i mean there's going to be big wind. extremely heavy rain. you can get thunder and lightning from something like this. the rainfall rates within this band are going to be massive. but here's the thing to notice. not a bunch in front of it. not a bunch behind it. you shouldn't see major river flooding because behind it you're going to get little breaks right. here's what we're tracking. 7:00a.m. here we are at 9:00 a.m. now it's into the heart of the
5:52 pm
bay area redwood city and out toward oakland. it's weakening a little bit but it's still hammering. it's 9:00 a.m. and boom. we're getting the brunt of this. it's coming right through the area. we're getting the brunt of this wind event. there's the breaks. okay, so we're going to time this out. that times looks pretty accurate so far. because a couple of models have been sticking to that. it's going to be a heavy deal. a lot of rain, it's going to be boom, boom, boom but there's not a lot going on. there's three of those lined up and then head for the hills. that little line, that's a squall. that's what you might see in a major thunderstorms or tornadic event in the midwest. the amount of rain that's going to come out. >> so pronounced too. >> it's going to go off. at least according to the models. we'll be timing it out for you. changes a little bit each day.
