6:00 pm
these men and women remind us that heroism is found not only on the fields of battle. they remind us that heroism does not require special training or physical strength. heroism is here in the hearts of so many of our fellow citizens, all around us, just waiting to be summoned. as it was on saturday morning. their actions, their selfles selflessness, poses a challenge to each of us.
6:01 pm
it raises the question of what, beyond prayers and expressions of concern, is required of us going forward. how can we honor the fallen? how can we be true to their memory? you see, when a tragedy like this strikes, it is part of our nature to demand explanations, to try to impose some order on the chaos to make sense out of that which seems senseless. already, we've seen a national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about
6:02 pm
everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. and much, much of this process of debating what might be done to prevent such tragedies in the future is an essential ingredient in our exercise of self-government. but at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do, it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we're talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that
6:03 pm
wounds. ( applause ) scripture tells us that there is evil in the world and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding. in the words of job, "when i looked for light, then came darkness." bad things happen, and we have to guard against simple explanations in the aftermath. for the truth is none of us can know exactly what triggered this vicious attack. none of us can know with any certainty what might have
6:04 pm
stopped these shots from being fired or what thoughts lurked in the inner recesses of a violent man's mind. yes, we have to examine all the facts behind this tragedy. we cannot and will not be passive in the face of such violence. we should be willing to challenge old assumptions in order to lessen the prospects of such violence in the future. ( applause ) but what we cannot do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on each other. ( applause ) that we cannot do.
6:05 pm
that we cannot do. as we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let's use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ours of all the ways that our hopes and dreams are bound together. ( applause )
6:06 pm
after all, that's what most of us do when we lose somebody in our family, especially if the loss is unexpected. we're shaken out of our routin routines. we're forced to look inward. we reflect on the past. did we spend enough time with an aging parent, we wonder? did we express our gratitude for all the sacrifices that they made for us? did we tell a spouse just how desperately we love them? not just once in a while, but every single day. so sudden loss causes us to look backward, but it also forces us to look forward, to reflect on the present and the future, on
6:07 pm
the manner in which we live our lives and nurture our relationships with those who are still with us. ( applause ) we may ask ourselves if we've shown enough kindness and generosity and compassion to the people in our lives. perhaps we question whether we're doing right by our children or our community, whether our priorities are in order. we recognize our own mortality, and we are reminded in the fleeting time we have on this earth, what matters is not wealth or status or power or
6:08 pm
fame but, rather, how well we have loved. ( cheers and applause ) and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better. ( cheers and applause ) and that process, that process of reflection, of making sure we align our values with our actions, that i believe is what a tragedy like this requires. for those who were harmed, those who were killed, they are part of our family, an american family, 300 million strong. ( applause )
6:09 pm
we may not have known them personally, but surely we see ours in them, in george and dot, in dorwan and mavy, we sense the abiding love we have for our own husbands, our own wives, our own life partners. phyllis, she's our mom or grandma. gabe, our brother or son. in judge roll, we recognize not only a man who prized his family and doing his job well, but also a man who embodied america's fidelity to the law. and in gabby, in gabby, we see a reflection of our public
6:10 pm
spiritedness, that desire to participate in that sometimes-frustrating, sometimes contentious, but always necessary and never-ending process to form a more perfect union. ( cheers and applause ) and in christina, in christina we see all of our children, so curious, so trusting, so energetic, so full of magic, so deserving of our love and so deserving of our good example. if this tragedy prompts
6:11 pm
reflection and debate, as it should, let's make sure it's worthy of those we have lost. ( applause ) let's make sure it's not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away in the next news cycle. the loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better, to be better in our private lives, to be better friends and neighbors, coworkers and parents. and if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our
6:12 pm
public discourse, let us remember it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy. it did not, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation in a way that would make them proud. ( applause ) we should be civil because we
6:13 pm
want to live up to the example of public servants like john roll and gabby giffords who knew first and foremost that we are all americans and that we can question each other's ideas without questioning each other's love of country, and that our task, working together, is to constantly widen the circle of our concern so that we bequeath the american dream to future generations. ( applause ) they believed, they believed and i believe that we can be better. those who died here, those who saved lives here, they helped me believe. we may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but i know how we treat one another, that's
6:14 pm
entirely up to us. ( applause ) and i believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us. ( applause ) that's what i believe, in part because that's what a child like christina taylor green believed. ( applause ) imagine, imagine for a moment-- here was a young girl who was just becoming aware of our democracy, just beginning to understand the obligations of citizenship, just starting to glimpse the fact that some day
6:15 pm
she, too, might play a part in shaping her nation's future. she had been elected to her student council. she saw public service as something exciting and hopeful. she was off to meet her congresswoman, someone she was sure was good and important, who might be a role model. she saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take for granted. i want to live up to her expectations. ( cheers and applause ) i want our democracy to be as good as christina imagined it. i want america to be as good as she imagined it.
6:16 pm
all of us, we should do everything we can do to make sure this country lives up to our children's expectations. ( cheers and applause )
6:17 pm
as has already been mentioned, christina was given to us on september 11, 2001, one of 50 babies born that day to be pictured in a book called "faces of hope." on either side of her photo in that book were simple wishes for a child's life. "i hope you help those in need," read one. "i hope you know all the words to the national anthem and sing it with your hand over your heart. i hope you-- i hope you jump in rain puddles." if there are rain puddles in heaven, christina is jumping in them today. ( applause )
6:18 pm
and here on this earth, here on this earth, we place our hands over our heart, and we commit ourselves, as americans, to forging a country that is forever worthy of her gentle, happy spirit. may god bless and keep those we've lost in restful and eternal peace. may he love and watch over the survivors. and may he bless the united states of america. ( cheers and applause )
6:19 pm
>> couric: a very well-received speech by the president at the university of arizona tonight. he mentioned that gabrielle giffords opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting shortly after he visited her at the hospital. some 14,000 people attending tonight, and an overflow crowtd of 13,000 at the university of arizona stadium. there will be more about the tragedy in tucson on your late local news on this cbs station. we return you now to regular programming. i'll be back with you with the cbs evening news for some of you. i'm katie couric. cbs news, washington.
6:20 pm
. you're watching cbs5 "eyewitness news." . and good evening, i'm allen martin. >> i'm dana king. you have been watching live coverage from tucson, arizona, and the memorial for saturday's shooting victims. president obama said no words could fill the hole in broken heart but he asked that we use the tragedy to come together to exercise empathy and listen to each other as a grieving family would. we want to show you live pictures from oakland where people have gathered there as well tonight. we will have more on the day's developments in arizona coming up in a few manipulates at 6:30. well, tonight we know just how much time that extra dollar is saving drivers when they hit the bay bridge.
6:21 pm
the new congestion pricing plan has had an impact. phil matier shows us it's not what they had hoped for. >> reporter: that's right. it has been 6 months since this started in the bay area bridges, and we've got the first report card today. >> we knew goin' into this we had never done it before and there's nothing like trying an idea to figure out how well it works. >> reporter: the idea was to charge drivers a dollar more at peak times so that fewer would drive and thus reduce the backup on bay bridges during rush hour. well it's been six months and -- >> over all we're seeing some change on the bay bridge congestion but we're not seeing enough for most people to recognize the difference on the daily basis. >> reporter: no kidding. according to a report issued today the extra dollar charge only reduced the bridge back up by 4 minutes something the officials are nonetheless calling significant. >> 3 to 4 minutes is significant?
6:22 pm
>> 3 to 4 minutes is significant every day if you're saving it instead of spending that time in traffic. you add up 3 or 4 minutes a day for a year, that's a good chunk of time. >> reporter: one thing everyone has noticed however is an 11400 a day drop off in the number of car poolers since they started charging them $2.50 a crossing. about half of them seem to be going back into the single car lanes. some of that may be because they no longer get the free ride. or it might be because they were actually cheating the system. >> now that we have detection in those lanes and we take a picture of your license plate if you're not a car pool, now that we know that, i think a lot of those folks are in the regular lanes. >> another problem may be that the higher tolls are in effect so long they figure they might as well spend the x extra buck and get going. >> we apply it from 5:00 to
6:23 pm
7:00 in the morning, and 3 to 4, and they'll consider whether narrowing that peak for the higher tolls makes some sense. >> reporter: in any case b.a.r.t. has seen an increase in rider ship. while that means less money for bridge repairs. >> if you're taking transit instead of car pooling environmentally i think that's a benefit fit. >> reporter: interesting allen. i asked them are they going to continue doing it, and they said yes it's going to stay on course but there might be some tinkering. then it got into this pretzel logic, yeah, we're losing car poolers so they are going to b.a.r.t., that's a good thing. mass transit. we don't have as much of an easy ride to the backups that didn't trim out as we thought but on the other hand we're, bottom line is we're making the money they wanted to make. >> that's what i was gonna say. so if people didn't change that you're drive types and the number of cars stayed consistent then we're going to
6:24 pm
raise revenue. >> reporter: exactly. then they would be in soup because they don't have the money to maintain the bridges. every time you ask them this isn't working they say bottom line it making the money they want you can expect them to stay around. >> phil matier in san francisco, thanks. on the day he was inauguration again as governor of california jerry brown said this. >> in seeking the office of governor i said i would be guided by three principles. first, speak the truth. no more smoke and mirrors on the budget, no empty promises. second -- [ applause ] >> second, no new taxes unless the people vote for them. and, third, return as much as possible decisions and authority to cities and counties and schools closer to the people. >> so the key words there "no more smoke and mirrors." does his budget live up to that
6:25 pm
promise? que gee anuclear just with the appearances. >> good proposal. >> reporter: it is getting glowing reviews from the legislative analyst it's office. they say his plan shows great promise to make substantial improvements in the state's budget terry health. we credit the government's efforts to craft a budget plan heavily focused on multi-year ongoing solutions. >> it doesn't have the kind of things we see in the past of a very optimistic assumptions of federal funds, about things like the lottery proposal which clearly had a lot of problems. >> we don't want to solve this budget through gimmicks and borrowing. >> reporter: gimmicks and borrowing became part of his operation. in 2010 the chance that the state will receive all of which eye seeks, is none existent.
6:26 pm
borrowing comes with major uncertainty. budget reform proposals are flawed. but they could compromise his budget success. >> there is the risk on the voters approving the tack extensions, some referral. >> reporter: cool a julius, cbs5. it is hard to get an education these days. that's why parents candidate understand why some of their best schools might close. ann notarangelo shows us how they are fighting the kits in concord tonight. ann? >> reporter: the district has to cut $12 million from its budget next year so they have to obviously do something. but when the parents here heard their school, which is one of the highest performing in the district, was on that list of possible closures, well, they decided to make some noise. >> we are mighty guarders. >> reporter: parents and
6:27 pm
students walked from monte gardens down the street to the district office in the hopes of sending the message they want to keep their high-performing school open. >> this is is to demonstrate to the board, to the decision- makers and the community, that we love monte gardens. >> reporter: one of the decision-makers is school board member gary eberhart who met reporters outside the office. >> as much as i don't like to see us going through this i love that people are that involved in their school that they come out and want to have a rally. >> reporter: the school district has to close at least three schools to save 1 1/2 million dollars, if they do not get concessions from their employees unions they may have to close even more schools. a school closing committee will present a list of 7 schools it is remington shut down. they consider among other things how much it would cost to close the school if the school is at capacity and the condition of the campus. parents here want their state api score of 918 to be
6:28 pm
considered too. >> the rest of the concord city with their schools are still trying to catch up, it's 6 to 700, so far behind. this school is a freight school to set an example and to copy, you know, the great standards they have. they have very high standards for teachers and parents' involvement. >> we had an opportunity to go private and this school actually trumped the private schools in my opinion. >> if it closes though will you look a little closer at the private school. >> actually i think we might home school at that point. >> reporter: that is an issue for the district which doesn't want to see children leave. it already has a declining enrollment and losses money every time a child goes somewhere else. do you know how you'll base your decision? >> my decision is going to be based on our discussion with that school closure committee. i mean that is going to be the vast majority of how i make that decision. you know, nobody wants their school closed. [ chanting save our school ]
6:29 pm
>> reporter: no they don't. what do you like about the school. >> i like our teachers and we get a real good education here and all my friends think that too and we really want to keep the school. we love monte gardens. >> reporter: monte gardens is a choice school which draws children from a lottery all over the district. some argue it should be closed instead of a neighborhood school. what do you say when people say this is an elite school and maybe the elite people should go back to their home schools. >> let's make all the schools elite. why close this one? let everybody get a good education. >> reporter: the district will hold three public meetings, their first one next thursday, and expects to take a final vote on which schools to close on february 8th. so will this rally have an impact on the final decision? maybe not. i talked to some other board members who said they are influenced by the interaction, believe me they are getting a lot of emails and phone calls. >> you got to love the passion
6:30 pm
though ann. >> reporter: you do and the children love this too as do all other children and their home schools. >> thank you ann. not everyone supports the idea of marijuana dispensaries but is somebody trying to grow them down? the bay area where some people say the problem is growing. i have never been to a retail store where i was required to provide a copy of my driver's license. >> if it hasn't happened to you yet it probably will. why your license is now being requested at the cash register and why a lot of people think that's a threat to your privacy. and this young man took it upon himself to fight graffiti. why his efforts are officially not wanted. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:33 pm
club today and it might be the latest in a string of dangerous crimes targeting medical marijuana dispensaries. some blame lawmakers for that. len? >> reporter: i talked to one club manager who said the city's lack of guidance on how they should be setup and run, the rules, the regulations, the zoning, all of that leads to a situation with wild west mentality and can create a situation like what we have right here. the house turned medicinal collective caught fire a little after 3:00 in the morning. by 5:00 they had the two alarm blaze under control. no one from the collective which was closed at the time would speak on camera but a neighbor said it was a surprise to her and not just the fire. >> i didn't even know it was that until i found it from a friend of mine who heard it on the news they were running a business out of there. >> only a small sign designates this as a marijuana collective.
6:34 pm
the cause of the fire is under investigation but the spokesman for another collective is suspicious. >> there are some people who suspect arson, it's really unfortunate that this kind of crime would happen to people trying to provide medicine. >> reporter: it is the latest in the long list of dangerous incidents at san jose pot clubs over the past few months. >> we have had robberies, we have had this recent incident with the fire, it's really posing a great threat to our public safety and our communities. >> reporter: he doesn't agree with how the collect gives are operating in san jose and says some should be shut down. one held a pot party with its members as a form of protest against san jose police raids and invited our cameras to see the smoke-out. >> i think that, quite frankly, they are in the wrong places, there is a lot of differences of opinion on what is legal and what's not legal. people who are kind of flying by the seat of their pants setting up shop, doing whatever they can to make a quick buck before the city council takes
6:35 pm
definitive action and i think that in many senses we have lost control. >> reporter: the pot clubs agree but they blame the city council for that. >> the lack of regulations is very frustrating. it's unfortunate san jose got to this appointment. there was a lot of potential, we still have a lot of potential, but in this grey area of the law it lends itself to criminal activities happening to those who are trying to run a legitimate business. >> so far the fire is under investigation, no official cause although arson is expected by some of the people around here, a similar incident happened at another dispensary where a bottle was thrown with a flammable liquid that caught on fire as well. len ramirez, cbs5. volunteers trying to brighten up the city park. hard to find anything wrong with that unless, as mike sugerman found out, things were getting a little too bright. >> reporter: aaron perry zuker and max platte kin walk through city parks with a purpose and

with a bag of painting supplies. the purpose, to wipe out graffiti, the painting supplies? to wipe out graffiti. >> today weary painting this park bench in mclaren park because it is a tin just cycle of graffiti and the park painting it over. >> reporter: they aren't too fond of the city-issued beige. >> i don't want to have a picnic but it's a nice park in my neighborhood. if it's red i'll sit at this table more. >> reporter: they have been doing red and yellow and blue for the last several months and taggers don't come back as often if it's a bold color. they think they are doing a good thing. what they are doing is very noble and in the spirit of the community, certainly. the problem is, it's kind of illegal. and, today, they were caught red-handed. >> where is my painter. >> busted. >> reporter: park and rec'
6:37 pm
director phil ginsberg knew about mark an aaron, their exploits have been in the papers. he wanted to give them a message. you're making more work with city painters. >> you get a little more training with our staff so we know what types of paints go on what type of surfaces. this is probably not a surface that should have been painted. >> reporter: 3300 reports of parks graffiti most get painted over in two days even though two painters are assigned to the detail. and they have painters that work with them too after training. >> i think it's great the parks department is interested in this project and wants to work with us. they could have come and busted us for vandalizing. >> reporter: but they don't know why they can't use bright colors instead of institutional ones. both can see the writing technician wall. mike sugerman. if a cashier asks to swipe

their i.d.'s if they want to return merchandise. it's supposed t it's an odd request but an increasing number of retailers are demanding customers swipe their id's if they want to return merchandise, it is supposed to prevent fraud but some people feel it's a violation of their privacy. julie watts explains how one local lawmaker thinks so too. >> reporter: back in december we introduced you to leslie. >> i certainly didn't feel comfortable doing it. >> reporter: she was shocked when the children's place made her hand over id to make a simple exchange. >> i had never been to a retail store where i was required to provide a copy of my drive's license where they took the information and can scan edit into the database. >> reporter: more and more are doing it.

victoria's secret are making you swipe for returns. >> they are trying to reduce the amount of returns, legitimate returns, by intimidating people by scanning their license then there is something wrong with their philosophy. >> reporter: congresswoman jackie spears says some are abusing the driver's license confidentiality. >> there is no reason for victoria's secret to be asking for your driver's license and i would suggest they are breaking the law. >> reporter: they are allowed to swipe your id when investigating fraud or impersonation. but returning an item does not fall under this exemption. >> and we should change the law so that it's clear that the only time you can scan is for misrepresentation, fraud or abuse. >> there is the greater issue about data being collected for other than tracking fraud. >> reporter: the law professor says this is questionable

6:46 pm
[ applause ] . >> president obama: that we cannot do. >> president obama said no one can know exactly what triggered that tragedy and he called on americans to strive for a more civil and honest public discourse. there was good news today on the condition of congresswoman giffords. >> president obama said in his speech that she opened her eyes for the first time this afternoon. meanwhile, investigators revealed the alleged gunmen had a brush with law enforcement just hours before the shooting. upon their arrival in tucson the president and his wife headed straight to representative gabrielle giffords bedside to pay their respects to the wounded lawmaker. they met with other representatives of the shooting much and tonight doctors are optimistic about her recovery. >> i'm happy to state that none of the downward events have some occurred at this time which is exactly what we wanted to kind of happen. >> reporter: it is now known

hours before saturday's shooting jared lockner was pulled over by authorities for running a red light. the officer checked his license, then let him go with a verbal warning. it wasn't his first interaction with law enforcement. >> from what i have seen, none of the interactions, or even the toe alberta of those interactions would lead any reasonable police officer to conclude that this guy would grab a gun and go shoot 20 people. >> reporter: that day, loughner was also seen removing a black bag from a family car. when his father asked him about it the 22-year-old took off running, investigators have not found that bag but inside lockner's home they have discovered a written note with the word "die," in it. police believe it refers to gabrielle giffords. >> i was the last person he shot before he had to reload. >> reporter: she survived the shooting after being shot three times. she was hit in both arms and a bullet is lodges in her back.
