4:22 pm
4:23 pm
in a letter released this week the police unions in san francisco and los angeles are urging governor jerry brown not to point san francisco district attorney to the post of attorney general. they say they oppose him because he is a failed prosecutor who is a poisonous relationship with law enforcement they have a long history with gas gun. they have purchased radio ads. they have but it had been -- butted heads before after he created a blue ribbon task force after the alleged racism and homophobia within the sfp day. this latest one comes out from the middle of nowhere. nothing prompted this except
4:24 pm
maybe he was going to get a great job and they don't want that to happen. >> this is the first anybody has heard of it. suddenly out of the blue they say do not give him this job. they also included los angeles police union. this is two groups that need a timeout. we need an adult to step in and say knock it off. it's not only embarrassing the childish.>> the san francisco police officers association are using money from their members to buy radio time and create radio ads let's listen to a portion of one of the radio ads that's running right now. >> to appoint him to a higher office would endanger public safety. that's why we're asking governor brown to do the right thing. the people of california deserve better. >> that's pretty incredible when you look at this is hard earned money and they are using it for this.

4:26 pm
being taken out and here's what he said about that.>> don't you find it a little odd that that -- it would get to that point where they are spending very union members hard-earned wages on this. >> it's happened more than once. i've seen them spend millions of dollars trying to get a prosecutor unelected. this is not uncommon. they are different interest from time to time and that's why it's important to distinguish a role of the union from the liberal of the police department.>> two different roles but the union is made up of police officers, does the rank-and-file respect george gascon and is the working relationship between the two offices, is that working? >> it's not working. it's becoming increasingly better across the country the dao police department often have problems.
4:27 pm
please feel like they're bringing all these great cases and you are refusing to charge. this is way beyond that. semi said this is a knife fight in a phone booth. these are two groups that are absolutely at each other's throats.>> and for this to stop obviously something has to give but it has been given in the last few months. a lot of people thought when -- once greg police officer left, do think a new chief will be able to repair it?>> i don't. george gascon is right in some sense for in many cases when something happens like these racist text they close ranks and tried to defend it as best they can. it's very hard to defend what they've done.however george gascon put a panel together and the police say we think these people are biased against us and they come back with a finding that this old boy

we reported earlier lew wolff is stepping down as is the team's president. how do fans feel about the changes? he is the president of an organization called saved oakland which is fighting to keep the oakland does make the oakland a's and the raiders in town.>> we are excited about this. it's bittersweet if you've worked with lew wolff, i think most feel this is a good thing. very excited that it will help keep the team in oakland. >> why do you think it's a good thing? we know that lew wolff has tried in the past to move the team to san jose. with his departure does that can be hoped that the team will stay here in oakland.>> what's more important, the new president said i want to keep
4:33 pm
it in oakland. he's had success doing this in san jose. again, the state of california will not vote for spending money on the stadium. he was able to get a new stadium built in its beautiful. it was all privately financed. we need the experience to get that done. las vegas with the raiders, they say they will vote public money and here in california we will not vote for that. they did not vote for new stadium. he has experience and is coming to the a's and he's going to build a new stadium.>> that is exactly what he told me. you see this as a great opportunity that increases the chances of both the a's and the raiders fan.. >> right now we're waiting for the nfl owners to vote. the nfl by law says that if there is a viable stadium in the market they cannot move. here all over the country their
4:34 pm
seen oakland a's are moving out of the state and oakland has -- is one of the last in the country that has the football and baseball playing in the same stadium.>> the stadium is one part but another part that i often hear a's fans complaining about is that when a player, you bring in a top name player and he become successful and he becomes too expensive. >> there are hard-core people here. there's a lot of passion. if we get more fans here, and they start winning again -- in 1990 the a's had the highest payroll in baseball. the area is huge. with more fans and with more
4:35 pm
revenue they will be able to keep the team. josh reddick just signed a deal. the a's have not had a problem finding good talent but a problem keeping it. >> you think a stadium will do that. i know you will be pitching to keep the oakland a's and the raiders in oakland. obviously a big day for a's fans we will have to see. a california lab is creating quite the buzz as researchers work to create a new breathalyzer that can detect both alcohol and marijuana when the person taking it exhales. we talk to the experts behind the invention and law enforcement.>> most of us see
4:36 pm
pot like this. or like this. but uc berkeley chemist season like this.>> this is a molecule.>> he has spent the last few 1.5 years looking for pot someplace no one has ever found it before. in a user's breath. >> we had to develop some new chemistry that can be done. it was not obvious when we started that we could tag this.>> meanwhile it could be obvious to a street cop when somebody is driving stoned.>> i think for most of our officers and paired is impaired.>> according to the sergeant with the union that represents highway patrolman, been able to make an arrest and being able to get a conviction are two different things. >> because they don't have a tool like with alcohol, it's very difficult for them to say all of these things that you saw, that's wonderful and you may have been right but we need to convince a jury.>> that
4:37 pm
would be found labs buzzing in with an answer. it's a breath test that can detect both alcohol and pot when the person taking it exhales. that's important because there are already plenty of ways to tell if someone uses marijuana but to tell if they smoked pot recently, if they are stoned, breath is much better than urine or blood. >> the metabolites reside for a long time. so you cannot use those methods very well to determine if someone has recently ingested marijuana or smoked marijuana. you can tell how long it's been.>> while he's been working on the problem for 1.5 years i'm a like the ceo of pound labs and the guy demonstrating the breathalyzer for us, they been working on this for much longer.>> we have tremendous interest not only from law enforcement but employers and the cannabis industry who'd know that you
4:38 pm
cannot be driving stoned. >> lynn argues that breathalyzer will be the best defense for pot users who are not stoned at the time there pulled over.>> meanwhile stanford university says although california voters approved the recreational use of marijuana, it will not be allowed on campus university released a statement saying that because stanford receives federal funding it must comply with federal law including current drug laws. marijuana is still illegal under federal law, the possession, use and growth will remain prohibited on stanford property including off-campus housing. this week we will update the ever-changing drama of -- the making a murder start.>> mostly clear skies and a bit of a breeze.

4:42 pm
seeing the documentary thought it was a horrible conviction. he was told he would be out by thanksgiving because a court did reverse his case that the appeals process started and now it looks like he will sit in jail for while.>> the appellate court reversed his conviction saying it was an unconstitutional confession, involuntary confession because of the way the police went about it. a 16-year-old kid, he was not very bright. you had to see the documentary to see what they were talking about.>> the line share people that watch this thought it was a tragedy.>> he gets the good decision but now it's been reversed. >> it's been reversed so they are saying your conviction is overturned. the prosecutors then go to the federal court and say wait a minute, the lower court said he could get out pending our decision to file or not file
4:43 pm
and we don't want him out so we will appeal the state courts reversal and the federal court said sorry, you have to stay in jail until we decide whether that court was correct or incorrect. it's normal. >> a lot of disappointed people >> and rightfully so. it's shocking and a lot of people think he can fast but back to the central park five, the young man that confessed after 30 hours of interrogation and 44 years later a conglomerate you find out dna proved someone else did it. false confessions happen>> earlier i talked to the san francisco chronicle about this incredible battle between george gascon, the district attorney general and the san
