7:30 am
city streets in san francisco. i heard a report about it embarcadero near harrison. we're just trying to verify. i got that on social media. we're trying to figure out -- we haven't seen them ourselves. there's no reason to believe that people who are tweeting about it are not telling the truth. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza as you head out to the macarthur maze. traffic will be backed up. this is a very big backup. 80 is backed up from hercules down to the toll plaza. 580 backed up all the way -- near the oakland zoo. all the way up to the basketball basketball delay. i want to look at 880 northbound. there are some people reporting on the 66 avenue overcrossing to the freeway. just holding signs. that kind of thing. i don't see anything there. but i see slow traffic driving through the area. i also see slow traffic going 880 to 238. that is typical. a lot of slow traffic in the south bay on all of the approaches to that west valley.

7:30. let's go back to the desk. >> disappointment and finger pointing about proposed reforms for the san francisco police department. alex savidge is live with the dispute between the supervisors and the police union. >> reporter: gasia, good morning to you. this disagreement centers on a proposed use of force policy that would put new restrictions on officers involved in a potentially dangerous encounter. there are some supervisors here at city hall who say the police union is refusing to budge on this particular issue. and that is holding up ongoing negotiations. last night, the police commission held a joint meeting with supervisors to reaffirm the city's commitment to finishing reforms that were recommended by the u.s. justice department last month. you will remember that mayor ed lee had asked for a federal review of sfpd policies and practices in response to several controversial police shootings, including the
7:32 am
killing of mario woods. the feds offered recommendations but the main point of contention is the use of force policy. the union takes issue with the proposal barring officers from shooting at moving cars. now, i talked about this issue a short time ago over the phone with tony rivera, a retired san francisco police chief and usf producer. >> there are several scenarios that you can look at regarding moving vehicles where it's hard to just say under no circumstances can you use your gun. there are situations where an officer's life could be very much endangered by a moving vehicle. >> reporter: the san francisco chronicle reports supervisor aaron teskan is concerned about delays in the negotiations and implementing reforms because he says the police union has filed a grievance over the proposed use of force policy. the ongoing negotiations

7:34 am
the 2017-2018 school year. the uc system and the cal state system are both looking for ways to increase revenue. uc spokesperson says the gap between what the uc system gets from the state and what they need to operate is widening. despite the fact that many of the money cut during the recession has been restored. the spokesperson says it's not enough to cover their costs per student. uc regents say if the tuitions increased, it would be the first time in six years. financial aid would cover the cost for most students. many of them are already struggling to make ends meet while going to school like housing and food and a tuition hike would cause them a financial hardship. they discussed the possibility of a tuition increase at that system yesterday. and csu long beach, i don't know if we have the video, but students protested the idea of
7:35 am
tuition hikes. they dressed up as zombies and called themselves members of the walking debt. the decision won't happen until january at the earliest. many people will be following the issue closely, listening to what is discussed at this two- day uc regents meeting. it starts at 9:00 over at ucsf. we will be heading over there next. >> thank you, allie rasmus. students and alumni at uc berkeley are offering support to a grad student who says she was sexually harassed for years a by prominent professor. now, the protesters rallied yesterday add the school in support of eva fisher. she says she endured years of discomfort and abuse from 61- year-old architecture professor al sayed. >> what i experienced was four years of constant manipulation and abuse of power when i was

extremely vulnerable who needed his approval to move forward with my education plans. >> her claims were confirmed that he touched her inappropriately and suggested going to las vegas together. the professor denies the charges. the university tells ktvu uc officials talked about student safety yesterday and plan to say what they will do about it in the coming days. new this morning, democrats in the senate will have a new leader when the new congress convenes in january. democrats elected new york senator chuck schumer to take over from harry reid who is retiring. republicans reelected mitch mcconnell for the majority leader. he distanced himself from donald trump during the campaign but is now ready to work with the president-elect. here at home, there is concern in san francisco over the attack of a nanny who is at
7:37 am
latina. federal park police say the attack of the nanny happened monday morning at fort mason. it is a possible hate crime. the nanny was taking care of two children when a man grabbed her and shoved her and said in spanish no latinos here. the man was arrested who matched the suspect description. in the castro district, castro community on patrol held a training session last night for new recruits. some were inspired to take action after the election last week. >> i immediately had this sense that our community was going to be put at threat from that with a different rhetoric that had been going on during the campaign. >> one of the chants was whose streets, our streets. that meant a lot to me. we want to make sure that our space is protected after donald trump's presidency. >> the castro community on

7:53 am
that amount? pam cook is back in the studio to take us on a tour of deals that are really hard to believe. >> yeah. i think a lot of people are interested in this. we found this hidden gem of a neighborhood in an unlikely place. it doesn't even come with a horrendous long commute. >> reporter: home prices are outrageous. and just plain out of reach for many people in many areas around the bay. there are some reasonable neighborhoods, but usually they're away from the big cities and the jobs and often make for a very long and tedious commute. so we went looking for some hidden gems and found one in richmond. >> we thought how could we ever afford to live here? >> joe and nancy raised their family in minnesota. so when their daughter settled here in california, they never thought they could afford a place to be near their grandkids. >> we weren't sure. we looked for a number of

7:55 am
because it is a richmond. >> reporter: he admits the shores are not a walking community. you have to drive to the grocery store. but it is close to a performance base that offers craft fairs and other festivals including the oakland symphony. it is also right off the 580 so an easy commute to the bay bridge, bart, and amtrak. but richmond is not an area known for its great schools. but the project manager says that will change as more families move in. >> you see it in the last couple of years in el cerrito. the schools have come up. we're the next exit. there's only so many place that's families can go and be within san francisco. >> reporter: that's what michelle and her husband are hoping for. they were excited to find a nice safe place to raise their 11-month-old daughter. >> it was safe for her and pretty affordable. he makes enough money so i can
7:56 am
be home with her. it's like living the dream here really. >> couldn't have said it better. the property manager has a financing agreement. you only have to put down 5% that. is low in the bay area. the most expensive condo goes up to $567,000. but that one is right on the water with the best views of the property. and you were talking about you have been over to crane way pavilion. >> yeah. i love it. >> the ferry is coming in 2018 is the target date for that. it will be even easier to commute. >> tremendous views. >> very pretty. we were surprised to find it. >> great story, pam. >> thank you,. >> thank you. time to check in with mike and gasia. >> dave, thank you. new information surrounding the killing of a family in the city of oakland. what we're learning about the woman arrested and now charged in the case. plus, president-elect donald trump continues to work with his transition team. what he is saying about the process to fill his cabinet. it's still busy in many
