ineffective. irreversible and immoral. that's how governor gavin newsom is describing the death penalty san francisco mayor london breed announced her choice for the next fire chief. why some consider her selection a trailblazer. of goi far. the celebrity court appearance scheduled for this afternoon and the bay area connection in this college admission scandal. good afternoon. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm mike bibby. we begin with breaking news from the white house where, just minutes ago, president trump issued an emergency order. >> we're going to be issuing an emergency order of prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 max 8 and the 737 max 9 and planes
associated with that line. >> right now, for those planes that are currently in the air, those planes will be grounded as soon as they arrive at the their destination. the president said that federal aviation administration as well as airlines and pilots have been notified. the united states now becomes frowned the planes in the wake of sunday's deadly ethiopian air lien crash that killed 157 people. tom vaccar is working on what effect will be across the country. >> pentagon tweeted out about the grounding saying that we are supporting this proactive step out of an abundance of caution. safety has been at the core value at boeing. now moving on to a
reprieve to death row inmates. >> this will stop the excuses for as long as he is in office. the goal here is to abolish the death penalty. >> reporter: that's right. he says that the goal is not to debate whether the people who are on dead row deserve to die but whether we have the right to execute them. the order will with draw california's lethal injection protocol and close the execution claim better at san quentin state prison. during the news conference, governor gavin newsom says that the chamber was being taken apart as he speaks. >> to the victims, all that i can say that is we owe you and we need to do more and do
better. provide for victims in this state and that's one thing that came home to me in a very deep and impactful way but we cannot advance it the death penalty in an effort to try to soften the blow of what happened. >> a 2016 california ballot measure to repeal the death pent was shot down by voters. when asked about this, he says that respects the people who disagree with him but says that the will of the voters was entrusted in him when they elected him. he has been against it the death penalty for decades, he says, and this should not come as a surprise. he says that does not change the defense but the death penalty will be abolished.
>> with san francisco's senior political writer joe garifi joins us. >> the move comes three years after voters in california voted to stop the banning of the penalty. how does that square with the will of the voters? >> i've been talking to republicans and conservatives around the state, for something that i'm doing for the chronicle about their reaction to this. they are saying, not only has he sort of flaunted that, but it makes them wonder how much
they can trust him. i talked to tom lackey who has spent 17 years as a california highway patrolman. he says that when you betray that trust, it's hard to trust someone. that's something that governor
newsom will have to face. he is like jeremy down, somebody opposed to the death pent. how is this announcement playing on the national staple, joe? >> we'll see how that plays out. other states have done similar things but, of course, when california does something, it has an exponential effect because of the size of our state. we'll see how that does and how many states who have left leaning it governors. for more people die of death row of natural age than execution. >> and this is an argument
made when the death pent was on the ballot a couple of years ago and that was a money issue. you know, this is costing us money. the governor used the term $5 billion in appeals and care and such.
but voters rejected that argument. they rejected this twice by ballot a couple of times. so, i mean, he's going in the face of what voters have said here. he has a lot of political capital right now. it's still early in the honeymoon. >> he has said he does not want to see any execution as loss ang he is governor. >> right. >> what has to happen for the death pent to be abolished. >> again, that will take the constitutional amendment. you have to go back to the voters to do that purchase i don't know if there is constituents to do that. it's proven to not be there in the past. we'll see -- this certainly was not on the top list of concerns of people in this last election. you know, housing, the homelessness, the cost of living in california, those are the issues that people are concerned concerned about. conservatives say, that's not something that they will be pursuing at this point.
they'll try to figure out their next move. we'll see. >> san francisco chronicle senior political writer joe garofoli. >> san francisco's mayor announced who will be the next fire chief in san francisco. the new chief is no stranger to the department, christien kafton? >> reporter: that's right. jeanine nicholson has been the deputy chief. >> reporter: nicholson has been in even sustaining burns fighting a fire. she says that the dense
population makes the situation challenging. >> i vow to work hard to continue to carry out the mission and vision of the san francisco fire department and keep us moving forward in a positive way. >> reporter: san francisco's firefighters union released a statement, saying that she is a proven, well respected leader. she'll work with outgoing chief joanne hayes-white on a plan. no word on when she'll be sworn in as the chief. live in san francisco, christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news. >> thank you. moving now to the college admission scandal that's rocking hollywood, college board rooms and some of the country's top universities including stanford. actress lori loughlin is set ap

recommendation, essays, have a kid check a box saying, i wrote my essay myself, list the names of any-up who them, really instill the expectations that you are behaving ethically in this process. we should stop participating in u.s. news and take a look at whether the s.a.t. or ability are anything more than an indicator of wealth. there are opportunities and possibilities to look at. i hope that people in charge at various schools will come together and figure out how to right thisship. >> julie, all valid points purchase i know that's a discussion that we'll continue to have in the weeks and months ahead but i appreciate the discussion with you this afternoon. julie, thank you. >> one more thing if you are still there. we have to worry about the mental health the kids. the kids who have been impacted in this, who are
