11:02 pm
about 50 members of the general assembly booed the mayor into city hall. all of this comes on the heels of tonight's candlelight vigil. >> can you stop the car? >> no. she wanted to address the crowd of the people attending an open candlelight vigil. instead, she slipped out the side doors, hoping to avoid cameras. >> it was be insane on the part of the mayor that she would get a warm welcome in occupy oakland, after the police repression that she ordered on tuesday. >> reporter: she wanted to attend tonight's vigil.

11:06 pm
george is outside of de anza college, where the attack took place. i can only imagine that people are unnerved there tonight. >> reporter: that's a good way to put it. de anza college has been keeping the parking garage lights on. normally they turn those off during the overnight. we've seen campus police monitoring the area. a student was assaulted inside this garage. brittany brown is going to find a different place to park from now on. a fellow de anza college student was allegedly choked in one of the parking garages. >> i'm not going to park in this garage tonight. i'm going to move my car to the main lot. out in the open where it's really bright. >> reporter: a man resembling the one you see in the sketch approached the victim as she was walking on campus and asked for help. when they got to the parking
11:07 pm

suspect. at the time of the assault, he was wearing a green sweater with white lettering and blue jeans. if you think you saw him this morning, contact the santa clara county sheriff's office. we're live at de anza college in cupertino tonight. a controversial, new development in the bryan stow case. the injured giants fan is being blamed, in part, for his own beating at dodgers stadium on opening day. a lawyer for mccourt filed a countersuit against the two men who allegedly attacked stow on march 31. mccourt is claiming that the two suspects should be held liable for stow's injuries, not the los angeles dodgers. the suit insinuates that stow should bear some responsibility for the fight. california has no choice. it can no longer afford its government mention. that word from governor brown, as he laid out a sweeping plan
11:09 pm
for reform. he wants to raise the retirement age for most future state workers, from 55 years old to 57. and require workers to pay at least half of their cost. he is proposing a hybrid pension system, where benefits are combined with a 401(k)-style plan. brown says this will save $9 million a year. and says it's a fair plan. >> the pension reforms will go a long way toward making our pension system more sustainable and more fair, to the taxpayer and the employee. >> reporter: how big is this problem in california? it depends who you ask. studies show that the state's pension system is between $100 billion and $500 billion in debt. brown's plan would quire arrival from lawmakers and voters. up close and a little too personal. we're hearing from a bay area kayaker who got a little more than he bargained for. >> we really need to go back to
11:10 pm

jay mohr yarty. and it shows us that it has some on the peninsula star-struck. >> reporter: hollywood rolls into san mateo for a movie shoot, attracting lots of attention. >> this is the most crowded i've seen 25th avenue for the first time. >> reporter: they wanted to see the shooting of "men and mavericks" up close. a movie about jay and his mentor. he was 22 when he died in a surfing accident. he launched into bigway surfing at mavericks north of half moon bay at 16. a story that she is attractive to. >> it's a local contest and makes me want to see the movie. it will be fun. >> reporter: movie fans had fun catching the stars in action. practicing riding a bike with ramben on the handlebars.

"men and mavericks" is due out next fall. a photograph so amazing, it almost looks fake. a local kayaker gets the surprise of a lifetime. it was taken during a
11:15 pm
promotional shoot on monterey bay. you see the whales there and you see the kayaker in the lower right. so close, he said he could  almost touch the majestic mammals. >> you could tell where they were going to come up. i would go right to them. and, oh, it was so great. you know, i was real close to them. one time, i had to duck so the tail didn't hit me. >> got a kick out of him. look at this picture again. it was set up to promote business in the santa cruz area. the photographer noticed the whales next to the kayaker and turned just in the right time to capture the image. uncivil and just rude. it's not how you want to see city council members actling. but that's what we found after spending the last two months going to city council meetings all over the bay area.
11:16 pm
see what happens when we confront leaders about their bad behavior. city council meetings are not always known for their excitement. but residents rely on their elected officials to be engaged and present. but look at what we found at a recent city council meeting in san jose. during the open forum, when the public can address city leaders, there's a sea of empty seats around council member, nancy pile. we saw several council members walking out of chambers. even eating and drinking. showed videos to elected officials. and they were unapologetic about their behavior. even when it has nothing to do with city business. >> sometimes, it's as simple as my wife sending me a text message, wanting me to pick something up on the way home. >> reporter: we found him using his cell phone, during a recent ceremony honoring san jose residents. he says he was posting a picture of the ceremony.
11:17 pm
>> if i'm on my phone, it's regarding city business. >> reporter: and we heard other explanations, too. >> sometimes the meetings go on very long. and we have to get up and stretch our legs. get a drink of water or use the restroom. >> reporter: this professor isn't buying that excuse. >> that's not something that you should run for elected office. >> reporter: the city of san jose has a code of conduct for public meetings. the rules, no using cell phones or pagers while the meeting's in session. no food, drink or chewing gum. but a council member would like to allow cell phone use. >> i don't keep the public from using their cell phone, as long as they're not talking on the phone. >> for now, the rules don't affect elected officials. >> we can hear what is going on in the back. but if people would spend time in the meetings, i wouldn't
11:18 pm
recommend it. but they see the council is very well behaved. >> but in other cities, respect isn't so obvious. from flipping the bird at this august council meeting in pleasant hills, to the more widely-seen hand slap in sausalito. we've seen no shortage of bay area council members behaving badly in the last few months. >> i think it's unacceptable. i think it's important for city council members to step back and really understand that they've been elected by the people to represent the interest for the people. >> and what we did see plenty of questionable behavior, most of the time, things were civil and orderly. including this recent san francisco board of supervisors meeting. which has history of ugly debate. and in this day and age, when
11:19 pm
just about everything is caught on camera, experts say the local politicians are forgetting the big picture. >> it's more than being elected. it's more than just quick sound bytes. it's caring about the constituents in our area and wanting to make a difference. >> we contacted the council members shown in that story. they either did not reply to our phone calls or or repeated e-mails. always a critical time in the week. we turn the hump, go into the weekend. and we have halloween on monday, right? >> yeah. jessica's looking at me like, i was thinking about that this morning. the weekend. it's almost here. let's look at the numbers we had today. we got warming after a very cold start this morning, with near record-setting lows here across the bay area. 79 in gilroy. 71 in san francisco. and close to 80 degrees in santa rosa. the current numbers are cool to
11:20 pm
cold in the north bay. but not as cold as we had this time last night because of those warmer temperatures we experienced today. 45 in napa. 46 in novato. and temperatures in the upper 40s in santa rosa. we will see isolated 30s in the north bay. but generally, widespread 40s as we head throughout the night with clear and cold conditions. for friday, what we'll find is more dry weather and more sunshine. but look at this. we've added rain back in your seven-day forecast, with much-needed rain coming your way shortly. but for now, no rainfall. clear from the bay area all the way down into southern california. a few high clouds offshore. we have high pressure continuing to deflect any activity in the northwest. so, that will keep it clear for tonight. it will keep it sunny for friday, with temperatures in the 70s as we head throughout our friday forecast. through the weekend, it will stay dry and mild. and a lot of the fog will be pushing away from the coastline. 43 in san rafael.
11:21 pm
