how it can lead to a less stressful life. when you thought the scandal could not get any worse investigators are looking into new allegations about the dirty police commander. >> we have known about the drugs but tonight joe vasquez uncovered details about a woman arrested for prostitution who reportedly went to work for him. >> reporter: as the commander of c net norman welsh had two main duties, rid the streets of drugs and stop the sex trade by going after prostitutes and johns, he has admitted to selling the drugs confiscated by the officers in his command and is facing new allegations he was running a brothel in this strip mall. not just running a brothel but running off the competition. chris butler who represented this now-abandoned office space told them his friend welsh used his powers as the task force commander to shut down other
1:41 am
houses of prostitution in contra costa county to get more business at his. they arrested him and charged her with running a house of pros pei suing. court records show that was later reduced to disturbing the peace. a few months later cbs5 has learned jordy simms ended up working here. she talked at length how they ended up running the brothel. jordy simms would sit at a desk in the front and claimed she was helping butler open up a second private investigations office to screen job candidates, but neighbors observed something different. a steady stream of men coming and going late into the night and working girls letting them in. >> i thought it was prostitution for sure. what else was it gonna be. >> reporter: when they complained the pleasant hill police department said it was the protocol to refer them to c net.
1:42 am
led by norman welsh. >> to have law enforcement ignore it or take advantage of it is a bad thing. >> he his attorney said yesterday allegations his client was involved in any way, shape, or form is completely false. but he admits to stealing and selling drugs. the navy seals who killed bin laden were wearing helmet cams and as david martin shows us, thanks to that video, we're learning exactly what they did including how they avoided killing one of his wives. >> the 40 minutes it took to kill bin laden and scoop his archives into garbage backs were all recorded by helmet cams worn by all 25 seals. officials are reconstructing a more accurate version of what happened. the only fire fight took place in the guest house where one of
1:43 am
his couriers was quickly gunned down. no one in the main building got off a shot although there were weapons nearby. they first saw bin laden when he came out on the third floor landing, they fired but missed. the first seal through the door grabbed bin laden's daughters and pulled them aside. when the second seal entered bin lad den's wife rushed at him or perhaps was pushed at him. he pushed her aside and shot him in the chest. a third seal shot him in the head. they went to view poe toes of what they took of the body? there are probably 4, 5, or 6 photos, just a couple of body shots, he was in a white under shirt and a tan robe. >> reporter: the electronics files the seals carted away from bin laden's compound secluded amongment things the names of operatives who were
1:44 am
unknown to them. it also contained adjourning of his handwritten notes. don't use arabs because they arouse too much suspicion. go after trains, time it to coincide with the 10 th anniversary of 9/11. there are also messages to his senior lieutenants and to al queda affiliates urging them not to waste time on small local operations and focus their efforts on the u.s. >> he kept all of that information and he kept all of the data, computers, hard drives, this is what we're analysing and it shows that his focus was clearly united states. >> reporter: u.s. officials cannot understand why bin laden apparently left what amounts to the keys to his terrorist kingdom lying around his compound in plain sight. none of it right for self destruction. if he had just hidden his files the seals would not have had enough time on the ground to find them. david martin, cbs news, the pentagon. the business world can be pretty cutthroat and tonight
1:45 am
we're getting a rare look at just how cutthroat, each nasty it is, in silicon veil. mark sayier on the not so friendly facebook. >> reporter: they are two of the biggest titans in silicon veil. facebook and google ceo larry page. their respective headquarters are five miles apart. why would facebook try to plant negative stories about google in the news. >> we're friends in the silicon veil until we're not and we have a loot of hate relationships in the veil. >> eric goldman is director of the high-tech law institute in silicon veil. >> facebook is paying attention to what google is doing. they might look scared about it. they looked a little bit like they needed to lash out against google and they picked a strange way to do it. >> reporter: in an email sent to an influential tech blog era representative of the public relations powerhouse tried to generate an article on what he called google's sweeping violations of user privacy but
1:46 am
the pr company did not disclose the client who wanted the article written about google was facebook. at issue a new program called google social circles. >> if you want to put it in a single word it's your life they are interested in. >> reporter: he says there is a lot at stake. >> to put it simply they don't like that they are searching the sites and reflecting some of what you do in your social network life. >> reporter: no smear campaign was authorized or intended, the issues are serious and we should have presented them in a serious and transparent way. for its part, the pr firm march steeler says the way this entire thing was handled is against its internal policies. the assignment from facebook should have been declined. as for google they've had no comment on this controversy today. certainly a battle of the titans here in silicon veil. >> mark sawyer, thank you. if you notice a lot more people walking around with

sharks gear on tomorrow, this is why. erence finals. n [ cheering and applause ] >> we just won the stanley cup. a thrilling game 7, the sharks beat the detroit red wings to advance to the conference finals, next they'll take on the vancouver canucks for a seven-game series starting sunday in vancouver. chopper 5 is over the shark tank now. dennis o'donnell is on the ground and will have game highlights coming up a little later in sports. >> other bay area headlines. police believe a domestic dispute led to a fatal shooting at a parking garage. 54-year-old napoleon caligui ran and her friend. both were honor students and just weeks away from graduating. the man then shot himself. the city of brentwood is using talking cameras to cut down on after-hour loitering and vandalism at a local park.
1:48 am
the $6,000 device warns you and then it snaps your photo. creek side park has two of them. police put them in because of graffiti, gang problems, and drug usage. the aclu is worried about the invasion of privacy but police say that the cameras are on public property and will only be turned on when the park is closed. next week the federal government will be auctioning off some items that belong to the uni bomber. even his man eye 'fess toe, the well-known hoody, are going to be up for sale. normally the stuff would be destroyed but grace lee reports the feds came up with a different idea. >> reporter: want to delve into the mind of the uni bomber? one of the most notorious modern-day criminals. buy some of his property. >> a screwdriver is just a screwdriver unless we can describe it had some impact in the case. >> reporter: u.s. marshall says they will auction off 60 items
1:49 am
that belonged to ted kaczynski and explain how each item was significant in the investigation. most of the stuff was taken from his one-room cabin in montana. >> the man 'fess toe is worth more so. >> reporter: marcus wardell is an appraiser. he says the hottest item will be the man 'fess toe. that will probably bring in the most cash. >> the man eye 'fess toe probably like 30 to 50,000. >> reporter: he says the typewriter used to write it could bring in between 10 to $20,000. together, they could get an even higher price. and what about the notorious sunglasses and hoody that the uni bomber was seen wearing in his composite sketch? >> the glasses may be like 4 to 6,000, even though there is a group of them and the hoody about 3 to 4,000. >> reporter: also for sale the shoes kaczynski made with smaller soles attached ostensibly to mislead authorities who traced him for 4 to 6 years. they could bring in a couple
1:50 am
thousand dollars, but the whole collection could hall in 150 grand. it will be an online auction for the man who injured 24 people and killed three with home made bombs. the same man who fought against development and technology. >> i'm thinking it's not just a little irony. i think it's a lot of irony here in that ted kaczynski railed against technology and its impact on society and on civilization and now we are using that very technology to auction off artifacts of his life. >> reporter: so what will happen to all the money that the u.s. marshalls get? they say they'll give the proceeds to the victims and the victims families. the bidding starts on may 18th and it will last two weeks. they are going to do it in an ebay style type of auction so it's hard to say how much money they are going to bring. but you can monitor the bidding. what is kind of cool too is because they are going to add in more information with each of those items to tell you how
1:51 am
they were significant in the investigation, that's going to be pretty cool to see too. >> i think theirest for the $150,000 is way low. you're going to eke out collectors who are interested in this stuff, the people out there who collect this type of stuff, i think it's going to go way up. >> museums, libraries, pretty fascinating stuff. >> it seems like it will go to a good cause, seems like it will be worth it. it is the highest-rated sitcom on television and the question has been "who will replace charlie sheen on 2 1/2 men." tonight we have an answer. and oil companies making money hand over fist while you pay record prices at the pump. so hear them explain why they still need all those tax credits. while americans pay a lot at the pump. i'm a curious seeker. i am a chemistry aficionado.

1:54 am
so why is big oil still getting tax credits? congress hauled in oil execs to ask them the oil companies are cashing in while americans pay a lot more at the pump. you know the story. so why is big oil still getting huge tax credits? congress hauled in some oil execs to ask them that today. >> i don't think they want shared sacrifice, they want shared prosperity, and what we have to offer -- >> but do you understand how out of touch that is? >> the five largest private oil companies are on track to make
1:55 am
a combined $140 billion in record profit this year so democrats want to eliminate $2.1 billion in tax cred immigrants. but executives representing those oil companies argued raising their taxes would push gas prices even higher and drive down domestic production. >> i'm gonna take my capital then, since the u.s. is not attractive then, i've got to go somewhere else. >> do you think that your subsidy is more important than the financial aid we give to students to go to college? could you answer that yes or no? >> well that's a very difficult question, they are two totally different questions. >> but we have to weigh those two things, mr. mullville. >> they argued oil makes less than other industries and technically they are right. oil producers make a net profit margin of 6 cents a dollar compared to 16 cents for the tech industry and 7 cents in the pharmaceutical industry. but the volume is what is

helping these oil companies iraqui in billions of dollars in record profits. republicans called today's hearing since the democrats really don't have the votes to eliminate the tax credits. incredible results from a new study. hiv positive people on anti- retroviral drugs can reduce the chance of transmit to go their partners by 96%. they suspected that hiv positive patients on medication would be less likely to spread the virus but they had no idea it would be so effective. the results only reinforce recommendations that hiv positive people start taking the drugs as soon as possible. are you stressed out, worried it's affecting your health? well, stress can literally change your dna it turns out. but dr. kim mulvihill shows us the new test you can take that help reverse the damage. >> ah. >> reporter: like many working

1:58 am
>> reporter: doctor har lay can accurately measure the lengths of an individual tila mere. as to why length is important. >> very short tila meers are what are behind a lot of age- related diseases. >> reporter: just like the tip of a shoe lace shortened tila meers can you at a high risk of cancer, dementia. chronic stress can do that. >> they do shorten them. >> reporter: tila meers are the one part of your dna you can actually change. >> they can shrink or increase in length depending upon your lifestyle and risk exposures. >> reporter: the idea? get an annual tila mere checkup. >> if you have short tila mere lengths and their rapid reductions in the length of the tila mere it may be indicative there is a problem in the health area. >> reporter: they may prescribe a dye et, stress reduction,
1:59 am
which may slow down the shortening of their tila meers. a change may occur in as little as 4 months. that's a test lease a al a ferris would like to take. >> do i ever feel rested? not very often. >> reporter: if she can only find the time. dr. kim mulvihill, cbs5 health watch. you have been waiting for this. one of the biggest questions in hollywood may be answered. two insiders claim cbs is close to signing a deal with ashton kutcher to replace charlie sheen on "two and a half men." neither cbs for the production company warner brothers would commented but cusper tweeted earlier today what is the square root of 6.25? the answer, 2 1/2. that's the answer, so "two and a half men." insiders say cusper will be paid around a million dollars an episode, which is a lot less than charlie sheen. >> i wonder how they are gonna do that, how they phase him? does charlie take a long vacation, does he go outside
2:00 am
and look at the weather. >> here is is a riddle for you. what does ashton kutcher have in common with the san jose sharks? winning. this is our weather cover looking out toward san francisco where today's high was 61 degrees, up from yesterday at 58 but still below average of 65. tonight, we'll all tumble into the 40s except for oakland right there at 50 and it's already 49 degrees in santa rosa dropping to 42 degrees. tomorrow morning grab a sweater or a light jacket. a chill in the air and the 40s and 50s but the sunshine, this is the area of low pressure to the north of us that enhanced that marine layer yesterday. it's now disintegrating at the seams and therefore scrubbing up the stratus, one more day of ample sunshine for your friday, once we have increasing clouds tomorrow night we'll not see the return of the sunshine until next thursday. tomorrow's high temperatures, we're going to ride them, similar to today. 60s at the beaches, bayside,
2:01 am
70s away from the bay in the eastern portion and to the north of our district. meanwhile the winds southwest and west, they'll below around the pollen, the therefore therefore the tree and grass count remains on the medium side. the forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies on saturday, rain arrives by saturday night containing some hail, sunday we also have scattered showers, a very raw day, 504 to 671 degrees. lingering shower possible monday. that's storm number 2 tuesday. you got a question?
2:02 am
so, what's the snapshot discount? it's pretty revolutionary. patented, actually. it takes a snapshot of your good driving habits, so you can save money. like a snapshot? that's what i'm talking about. in a sports car. show it to me. yes! i want to believe it! ooh! fierce! argh! love it. i think we have it. the snapshot discount. new, huge, and only from progressive.

2:04 am
radar echoes every one of them was nearly textbook perfect super cell which means a thunderstorm. >> john monta verde says the united states has the largest geographic area on the earth capable of producing those kinds of violent storms. >> mississippi, up through tennessee, southern parts of kentucky, alabama, georgia, eventually into the carolinas and parts of virginia. >> monta verde says it's true tornadoes can develop at locations all around the world there are very few other places that can produce the giant killer tornadoes we see in the u.s. >> well bangladesh, north of the bay of bengal, southeast of the hymn laya mountains. >> he says the warm waters of the bay of bengal mix with the cold jet stream out of the himalayas has produced some wicked storms with bowling-ball sized hail but in terms of sheer size no place tops the u.s. for twisters. >> the u.s.a. is clearly the tornado alley of
