4:03 pm
the state? >> reporter: we spoke with the public defender who said he couldn't comment but both sides seemed to agree that perhaps this was motivated in some sort by alcohol that both of the people involved -- all of the people involved in the argument had been at a bar earlier, and perhaps that alcohol aggravated this situation. >> tara, thank you so much. santa clara county prosecutors announced they charged ex 49ers football player tramaine brock with felony battery charges. investigators although the time said they saw marks on the victim's neck. brock is due back in court on july 3rd. he has been free on bail since his arrest. a central valley man is under arrest accused of driving to the bay area with the intent to kill his doctors. police say the case against him

4:09 pm
pressured him to drop the investigation into white house advisor michael flynn's possible ties to russia. both republicans and democrats say they hope comey is able to shed some light on the allegations of coordination between the trump presidential campaign and russia. >> there is a lot of smoke. we have no smoking gun at this point but there is a lot of smoke. >> what comey says and how he says it i think will be important. i haven't, frankly, understood much of what comey has done since about a year ago, and his decisions have been, i think, highly questionable. >> comey's testimony before the senate intelligence committee is scheduled to begin at 7:00 in the morning our time on thursday. ktvu will have complete coverage of james comey's testimony thursday on both of our channels. join us on ktvu's mornings on 2, but if you would like to see the complete testimony go to

authorities in the united kingdom released new details about the london terror attack as their investigations continue. joel waldman is in london with more. >> reporter: we are getting new details today about the victims and perpetrators of this past weekend's deadly terror attack, british police now identifying
4:14 pm
all three terror attackers. the third is an italian national who is not a subject of interest to authorities. two others were previously named as the other two attackers. >> the police will be looking at a exactly who these characters were, what we knew about them earlier on. >> reporter: we are also learning more about the victims, police identifying an australian, a 28-year-old nurse living in london. family and friends are also mourning the loss of a 30-year- old in her home country of canda. >> i think what you take from this thing is terrorism has no bounds. >> reporter: meantime, people all across the u.k. observed a moment of silence in honor of all those killed and injured. london's mayor standing alongside ambulance workers while others stood at the end of london bridge.
4:15 pm
>> it's devastating that someone would come and mow these people down. >> reporter: vice president mike pence also expressing his condolences today. >> as the president said two nights ago, this bloodshed must end. >> reporter: 12 people arrested after the atask since been released as authorities continue to look for any possible accomplices. in london, joel waldman, fox news. >> next month will be the first anniversary of a deadly ambush in dallas, texas that killed five police officers. plans were announced today to mark the occasion with an event called the weekend of honor. organizers say they want to unite the city and make sure both law enforcement officers and civilians feel they have a safe place to go to reflect on the killing. >> there's still a lot of people that have not processed what occurred on july 7th of last year. there's a significant amount of officers that have not done that. there's community that haven't done it, the hospital, people like that. and i don't think we as a group should be alone.
4:16 pm
so that's what this is about. >> the shootings happened after a march to protest police violence. investigators identified the shooter as a micah xavier johnson. johnson was killed hours later by a bomb attached to a remote controlled police vehicle. the colorado supreme court appears closely divided over the constitutionality of a ballot measure passed to try to speed up executions. justices spent most of a hearing today focusing on the measure. opponents say it would cause the courts to prioritize death penalty cases at the expense of other cases. the supreme court will have three months to issue a ruling on all of this. and for more on the topic i'm joined by a professor from uc hastings college of law. everyone seems to get up in arms about the death penalty, for or against, but why does it take so long for these cases to work their way through the
4:17 pm
courts? >> basically what drags is for the most part the appellate and habe i couldn't and -- the appellate and a habeas corpus process. sometimes new evidence comes up, sometimes there's new cases coming up. there's always new creative arguments coming up, some pertaining to the chemicals, some of them pertaining to the individual features of the case. so yes, there are delays. >> can we get a case resoifnld five years? nobody wants an innocent person put to death. five years long enough? the voters of california seem to think. so. >> 51% of the voters in california seem to think. so the folks that vote don't always know the particular technicalities. the issue is if you try to speed things up you are
4:18 pm
compromising the quality of the process. so essential capping these cases for five years might deprive people of discovering new evidence. we have pretty shocking cases, not one, not two. in the dozens, and where new received discovered 18, 20, 25 years later. >> in california? >> a couple in california, but examples in other places. california is certainly not immune to wrongful convictions. so evidence tends to pop up later. we have issues of quality of representation. this suit risk in prop 66 which is that given the fact that we don't have enough attorneys, the question is how are we going to speed the process if we have so few people who are qualified to represent people. prop 66 would enable the state to require people who actually don't know what they are doing and don't have expertise undeath penalty cases to represent people in these cases, and that means more mistakes might bunch up. and that also means that people will have later appellate claims of having received
4:19 pm
inadequate representation. those also have to take a few years to unfold. the basic message is this. i have a little hastily made up prop here. this is going to be recognizable to anybody who has tried to renovate their house. the same principle applies to a policy decision. if you want something to be good, fast, and cheap, you have to choose two out of the three, you can't have all three. and prop 66 focuses on making death penalty cases faster, speeding up the process, and on making them cheaper by asigning them two people that are not qualified to handle it. if you compromise you are necessarily going to compromise the justice quality, and this is what the opponents are arguing. >> what is your sense of how the justices were acting to this during the hearing? >> something interesting happened at the oral arguments. the justices seemed to disbelieve that you can actually follow a death penalty case through within five years. i should also mention they are going to take these cases out
4:20 pm
of the appellate courts. they want to take them into the original courts that tried the case. we know that even the best intentioned people are not very like toll admit their own mistakes so this is going to hamper the possibilities that people have to reverse their convictions on appeal. so the judges were pretty dubious that this could happen in five years, and then they argued, well, it's not exactly five years, and the justices were looking at the proposition and said, no, this is actually a hard deadline. so it's kind of unclear. it seemed like the justices themselves were somewhat incredulous of the ability of the system to squeeze a case like that through in five years. >> thank you for being with us. nearly two dozen uber employees received pink slips and made an internal probe into sexual harassment and bullying. we will have details on what
4:21 pm
prompted the firings. who are these people?
4:22 pm
the energy conscious people among us say small actions can add up to something... humongous. a little thing here. a little thing there. starts to feel like a badge maybe millions can wear. who are all these caretakers, advocates too? turns out, it's californians it's me and it's you. don't stop now, it's easy to add to the routine. join energy upgrade california and do your thing.
4:23 pm
ride share company uber says hat fired 22 employees as part of its internal probe into sexual harassment at the company. the investigation by an outside law firm looked into 215 claims of inappropriate workplace incidents. the probe began in february after a former employee alleged in a personal blog post that she was sexually harassed and a experienced gender bias during
4:24 pm
her time at the company. meantime san francisco's city attorney wants to know more about uber and lyft an their drivers. they want to know how many hours and miles drivers log and a whether their vehicles are accessible to the disabled. for more now i'm joined by auto reporter tim higgins. tim, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> let's first talk about the firings related to sexual harassment. we mentioned a former employee who said a manager was propositioning her shortly after her arrival, but after reporting to the hr she claims uber did nothing but give him a warning. >> you have to remember this blog when it was published became an explosion throughout
4:25 pm
silicon valley opening up questions about the culture at uber, whether it was treating people correctly. the investigation is two parts. this is the first part. we're expecting the second part, an investigation led by eric holder. what we're hearing today is some of the response to the firing of these folks. we expect to hear other remedies later on, all as uber tries to answer this question about how it is going to address issues around its culture. >> we're also learning from uber today that they are beefing up their hr department. they're implementing a confidential hotline for employees. they're talking about making some additions to their employee handbook. do you think their efforts are enough given the environment that we're hearing about? >> the problem for uber is multiple issues here. it is not only retaining and recruiting new employees, but it is also about its perception
4:26 pm
within its customers ranks. you have to remember that you know hear been combative in a lot of communities around the country and has developed a reputation for maybe breaking trolls get ahead, and it has seen a push-back in some communities. there's been an effort to delete uber off of your app following some issues regarding the ceo's involvement with the trump administration on a panel there. he ended up having to drop out because it was seen as he would be supporting the administration's views on immigration. so they faced a lot of blowback in the community. >> that's a good segue into the subpoena discussion that we should have. apparently the city attorney wants to know more and wants to know if uber and lyft are public nuisances. do you think this was bound to happen? >> we've seen this type of questioning in a lot of communities, the concern about whether ride share services are adding to congestion, whether they're servicing all of the
4:27 pm
communities that they're supposed to be servicing. uber, for example, has gotten in big fights in places like new york city in the past, and it's part of its dna, having to fight with local authorities to do what it feels like it needs to do for business. >> how do you think all of this is going to affect the consumer culture, the people who ride uber and lyft and are watching all of this play out? >> it is definitely -- i mean, we saw, after the recent attacks in the u.k., complaints about surge pricing of uber there. and think about other services that you use in your daily life. uber is one of those things that's very he he visceral. you see it in your phone and you feel it in your life. the way they've allegedly treated women, it's bleeding
4:28 pm
into the consumer experience. >> tim higgins with the wall street journal, thank you for joining us today. >> thank you. it is day two of appear a pal's an awe wall developers conference in san jose and former first lady michelle obama was there. apple's ceo tim cook surprised them yesterday with mrs. obama's appearance. reporters were not allowed inside, but an attendee sent us this. >> i think it's amazing to actually be in the same room as her. i think she's an awesome role model for all the women. i think she just exudes self- confidence. >> yesterday apple unveiled a few new items and upgrades like the digital assistant home pod.
4:29 pm
the do not disturb while driving feature for iphones, and the newest operating system, ios 11. san jose leaders hope an anticipated deal with google will lead to a grand slam of development west of downtown. negotiations could begin later this month on the project centered on the site of the old stevens meat company. it would be a 6-million-square- foot facility. >> we have worked for several years with our surrounding neighborhoods and with the downtown community to reimagine these 250 acres and the development that will surround what will become the busiest multimodal station in the western united states. >> what is so attractive is a huge office development space right on the convergence of caltrain, bart, high-speed
4:30 pm
rail, all within walking distance of the downtown core. it's that development that will also attract housing, retail, entertainment. >> officials say when the project is completed it could rival or even dwarf apple's so- called spaceship headquarters under construction in cupertino. there's no date yet for an official ground breaking. she is accused of encouraging her boyfriend to take his own life. still to come, details on the teen's fate and a controversial trial unfolding in new england. plus, a deeper look at recent terror attacks. we're going to speak with an expert to learn if the frequency of these attacks could actually be hurting the islamic state. that's coming up on "the four on 2".

[ sniffing ] [ seagulls squawking ] security officials in europe are on alert after another suspected terror attack, this time in paris. it comes as police in london release the identity of a third suspect. caroline shively has more from washington. >> reporter: wielding a hammer and a shouting, "this is for syria," a man attacked a police officer in paris. the officer suffered minor injuries. the man was shot and wounded by another nearby officer. >> inside notre dame cathedral in paris, hundreds of tourists
4:34 pm
suddenly found themselves under lockdown while outside police were yelling for hundreds more to run, clearing the square after another suspected terror attack played out. >> he had a hammer. we also found on him kitchen knives. so that means it was very basic tools. we've gone from a sophisticated terrorism, to a terrorism where any type of tool can be used to attack people. >> reporter: police said the operation was over about an hour after it started, the attack coming on the 75th a anniversary of d-day and a coincides with an a effort to retake the syrian city of raqqa, the de facto capital of isis. meanwhile police in london have now publicly identified a third is in saturday's terror

attacks. he is a 22-year-old, a moroccan italian on a security watch list. in recent months terror attacks have coincided with elections. to that point voters in britain go to the polls on thursday. in washington, caroline shively, fox news. >> the idea behind terrorism, of course, to incite fear. for more on the psychology behind terror acts we're joined by melanie greenberg via skype. are we getting terror fatigue, or are we getting used to the idea? tell me about the effect on all of our psyches because of these recent attacks. >> sure. the purpose of terrorism to incite terror. they want to do psychological damage. they want to scare a whole lot of people. and generally they're successful, because we seat on

tv, and then people feel personally vulnerable. but if it's too much, eventually we get used to it. there's a quality of our ner vows system that is subject to has bit you the to -- subject to habituation. for example, if you live near an airport, after awhile, you don't hear it as much. >> a lot of people on facebook put the french flag colors super imposed or had references to the attacks. after this recent attack a lot of people didn't see that as much on social media. of course in great britain the phrase keep calm and carry on is well-known and goes back to
4:37 pm
the days of world war ii. great britain has been through the ira troubles of london. it seems like the people of great britain take that "stay calm and carry on" phrase to heart. >> i think that's true, and some of it could be cultural. i think that's valued in britain, that you have this stiff upper lip, and you stay calm and do your duty no matter how you feel. i think it's part of a cultural value, but perhaps because they've had experience with this, as you say. >> another thing worth noting is that, according to the -- i'm looking up the organization here, the global terrorism index, the number of deaths from terrorism actually decreased by 10% in 2015. that's the first decrease since 2010. so even though we hear all of these stories about terrorist attacks, the number of people getting killed is actually going down, and they compare it, the number of europeans and
4:38 pm
americans in particular who die in terrorist attacks is about the same number as those who die in lightning strikes. so the chances of dying in a terrorist adark pretty remote. >> exactly right. and if you get too scared and you stop going about your normal life, then terrorists have won, in a way. i think a way to stand up to terrorists is to say, well, i feel scared, and maybe something could happen, but it's very, very unlikely. and maybe you want to think about staying scared to go to the market. you may want to think about all the times you have gone to the market that nothing has happened. our brains tend to grab the one negative incident, and they hang on to that. we don't remember all the other times that we were safe. >> you're right. dr. melanie griffin, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> you're welcome. i enjoyed being here. a judge in massachusetts is being asked to decide if someone can be legally responsible for another person's suicide.

4:45 pm
in 2004 but wasn't reported to police until 2005. she says that she was embarrassed. she was worried because of cosby's stature and importance in the community to go to police, and she says that's why she waited so long to tell them the police say that's also what she told them that night. that's according to dave mason who testified today. so prosecutors say this case is about trust, betrayal, and the inability to consent. the defense says this is a case where a man has been wrongly accused. they urged the jurors in their opening remarks to stand and do the right thing. they said the right thing was deciding cosby was not guilty. in morristown, pennsylvania, i'm ellison barbour, fox news. you're thirsty, you're in the pool this week, right, rosemary? >> at least over the north bay. we are all cooling down. in fact, five to ten degrees is
