rude to the waitress and share that with other clubs using the same technology. san francisco police want that information kept for 15 days in some cases. some attorneys say it would be a clear violation of a person's right to privacy but others say using the information to track troublemakers could save lives. one member of the entertainment commission says we just wanna know what is available out there so we can have an idea of what we may or may not use. live in the news room, terry mcsweeney, abc 7 news. >> terry, thanks a lot. bay area charities that serve the needy are sounding an early alarm this holiday season. they're starting that appear now for individuals to step up and help. live at the food bank in san jose, theresa will show us why. >> hunger knows no season and especially come the holiday period, usually more donations come in to help the hungry. but the problem here at the second p harvest food bank and many others are experiencing an

(cheers and applause) >> everybody? thanks for joining us. i'm kristen. >> i think that was a unanimous vote there. a surprising conclusion this morning from a law enforcement
panel looking into jessica's law. that's the state statute that spells out where sex offenders can and cannot live. jenelle wang joins us live with more. this panel says part of the law should be thrown out. >> that's right. the part that says convicted sex offenders can't live within 2,000 feet of a school or park. that's making it harder to find a place to live causing them to move more frequently and therefore more difficult to monitor. so a task force made up of parole officers and law enforcement is recommending to appeal that portion of jessica's law. for example, in san francisco the city is so dense there's virtually nowhere a sex offender could live legally. one report says every sex offender released in san francisco is homeless. since voters passed jessica's law in 2006, one-third of parole offenders are now transients. the panel says "homeless sex
offenders put the public at risk." legal analyst dean johnson believes most will stay away from this proposal but believes the law may need to be modified ood . >> what we have to do is have to pass the laws that best protect the public. right now this jessica's law has currently drafted is not protecting the public, it's undermining the public protection. >> the task force is not recommending to arepeal the other portion of the law, the mandatory tracking of sex offender movement with gps ankle bracelets. the coauthor from lancaster says he would consider reducing the 2,000 foot limit in dense cities like san francisco but most communities he says the law works. kristen? >> jenelle, thank you. it's 5:31. the fruit veil station is open this morning. the protest began in front of an

murder conviction in fresno in 1999. bay area charities are getting an early start collecting food for the less fortunate. the need is especially great this year and they're asking for your help. theresa garcia's live at the second harvest food bank in san jose with more. theresa? >> this is the headquarters of second harvest here in san jose. it provides dozens of nonprofits with meals year-round. and now at this season it is reaching out to the public for more help. the problem is that bay area food banks have a great imbalance of food versus need. the salvation army is one of many non-profits putting out the call for donations whether it be food or money to buy more food. with only a couple weeks to go before thanksgiving, san jose salvation army has only 68 donated turkeys, less than half for the demand. the shortage is even worse at the antioch facility which serves all of eastern contra costa county.
it's set to provide 150 food boxes to families but so far only has seven turkeys. it's indicative of even a broader shortage. >> we have seen an 8% decline in donations compared to last year which is scary for us considering the need has grown. >> and these food banks like second harvest has seen the need increase since the recession began several years ago and hunger knows no season. but the holidays usually more donations come in but again the problem is the donations are not meeting that increased demand for help. one of the phrases i've heard is buy your turkey a twin. what that means, when you go to buy a turkey for your family dinner table, if possible buy a second one to denate. theresa garcia, abc 7 news. >> all right, theresa. thanks a lot. friends and fellow students are holding a really in san francisco as a last ditch effort to stop the deportation of a city college nursing student. the 20-year-old known as steve
