set up a camp here but here they are and there's more than 100 tents now. so last night and over the last couple weeks, they have been begging and pleading with and fighting with some of their more violent members not to commit violence and they are being equally disregarded. they look like ninjas. dressed in dark clothing, faces mask, this is the violent faction that "occupy oakland" demonstrators insist is ruining their peaceful protests. who are they? yesterday police called them black bloc which is not the name of any organization. instead, it's a tactic protestors use for hiding their identity so they canavan vandalize without identification. they started in the '80s and have become familiar in demonstrations around the world. so are these oakland protestors really black bloc? today the police chief backed
6:01 pm
away from that term. >> i don't know if they are black bloc or notful i don't want to label them as any particular group because i don't know that. i can say generally we consider them anarchists and provocateurs people intent on causing damage regardless of the situation whether it's peaceful or not. >> reporter: two other police spokesmen told me off camera that the department does know the identity of the violent faction but they don't want to give them undue publicity. two things are clear. they succeeded in committing vandalism and violence. other oakland "occupy" protestors went through dramatic lengths to try to stop them. [ yelling and cursing ] >> reporter: this woman was hurt trying to stave off an attack at the whole foods grocery store. another man waved a chair and kept the ninjas at bay for a short time anyway. overnight watch as the man with the fire hydrant tried to put out a fire and was violently shoved away. but he cannot trying.
6:02 pm
most of the "occupy oakland" folks say they are determined to stop it. >> this is peaceful but there's no guarantee that it will be peaceful. >> reporter: but there is still major disagreement about whether the violent factions should be completely shunned. >> they are emotional. i think they are. i think -- >> they had nothing to did with the movement and nothing do with "occupy oakland." >> that's not true. >> it's absolutely true. >> it's not. >> if you support it, leave. >> reporter: and we're back live where they are still hard at work frying to clean up some of the vandalism from last night. police say they want to clean up the mess. they are going to post the photos today or tomorrow. the majority of these protestors have been very peaceful, quite civil, as we observe, but police want to make sure that the violent action is taken care of.
6:03 pm
>> joe, we saw and you saw, too, a lot of them wear the hoodies and the masks and if they want to hide their identity, they hide it very well. >> reporter: right. and we get the indication from the police that they have to some degree infiltrated the group that they have some kind of intelligence and that they are going to be exposing some of the members of that group because they believe as many members of the "occupy oakland" group that they have hijacked what is largely a peaceful demonstration. >> absolutely. okay. joe, thanks so much. oakland's mayor had praise for police who arrested the hard core protestors. and that's a big change from last week when police took criticism from nearly all sides. christin ayers has the more on that and what demonstrations are costing the city. christin. >> reporter: dana, some of the damage from last night still evident here at a police substation. you can see the busted windows here. at least one protestor arrested on felony vandalism charges for

6:05 pm
with them via twitter. she took tow social networking site last night urging group members to call her. she was able to start a dialogue with organizers and is hoping for a peaceful resolution. and right now, for about the past 30 minutes or so, the city has been holding a special city council meaning inside of city hall of mayor quan wanting to talk to members of the community and also organizers at "occupy oakland" about how these protests have affected them. >> thank you, christin ayers. you saw the riots and as expected there was damage left behind. but there was one man who stood his ground. mark sayre on his shotgun tactics to get the troublemakers to back off. and they did. mark. >> reporter: indeed they did. that city council meeting is taking place this city hall. there you see it one of eight windows in this very building broken. this is the scene throughout downtown as businesses try to

6:14 pm
billion. last year, california faced a $19 billion deficit. a house panel voted today to subpoena the white house for more information on solyndra's massive loan. democrats tried to delay today's vote argue that the subpoena was too broad unnecessary even. republicans are questioning the white house's relationship with the bankrupt solar company accusing it of stonewalling congressional investigators. >> the purpose of this investigation is find out what happened, what went wrong, and what do we do to fix it? and by the stall tactics that we have seen all year we have not been able to conclude this investigation. >> the white house has already released 85,000 documents but republicans want thousands more which the white house resisted giving up. fremont-based solyndra filed for bankruptcy in september after getting a half billion- dollar loan from the government. there's some people in palo alto who are raising a big

[ laughter ] >> did you really just say that? >> i know. i was just trying to cover my girlfriend there. you didn't hear that at home. >> he was talking about a dump. >> we did have a slight dumping today about a tenth of .10" of rain. when you see that green on the screen, that means you need an umbrella. this is what's left of our cold front. light precipitation now from mountain view back into sunnyvale into san jose and dig its path towards morgan hill and gilroy. now, currently outside it looks like we are starting to clear out around the coast and the bay and later on tonight it's going to be chilly with the colder air mass it place.
6:18 pm
37 degrees in santa rosa, 45 in throughout willow glen and san jose. see what i mean? it's breaking up on ocean beach but you see the darker clouds gathering to the south of ocean beach and that's where the cold front is currently located. meanwhile, i know you're paying attention, allen, temperatures are into the 50s except livermore at 48 degrees. we have a lot of cloud cover out there. your headlines for the weekend, we certainly will have a mixed bag of week especially weather in store for you. rain by saturday night, and it will taper off early sunday leaving us with a very cool sunday for raider action. we do have a lot of unstable air mass with the passage of this cold front but for the most part tonight temperatures will be recovering into the 50s and 60s for your friday. we'll pinpoint those numbers next time around. dana? >> thank you, roberta. you know, it's not just k through 12 any more:a little known new law is about to change the entire california

school system. as len ramirez explains, it could mean an extra year of kindergarten from now on. >> reporter: that's right. here in california, kindergarten has gotten tougher forestudents and the schools are finding out that the younger students, those who have not yet turned 5 when they on ther kindergarten are having the toughest time. so for them there is a new idea called transitional kindergarten. angelo started kindergarten this fall at 4.5. >> he is doing exceptionally well. he has a little talking problem will you about get through it. >> reporter: many kids don't do so well meeting new kindergarten standards. that's one of the reasons behind california's move to transitional kindergarten. >> we expect students? the state of california to be reading and writing by the end of kindergarten and addition and subtraction. >> reporter: one school
6:20 pm
district is considering two kindergarten programs next year. it would offer children who are not yet five when school starts the option of an extra kindergarten to ensure more students get promoted to first grade and remove a stigma for those who would be held back. >> by looking at the opportunity for students to have a two-year kindergarten program, wherthey are promoted to the second year of a kindergarten program it places a more positive light on their developmental needs. >> reporter: today in california, children whose birthdays are before december 2 are placed in kindergarten but under the state's new kindergarten readiness act passed last year only students with birthdays between september and december would have the option of transitional kindergarten. >> i think that for some children it would be appropriate because they might be educationally a little lagging and need the extra time to really absorb the material. but i think for a lot of children, the challenge might be what they need to help excel
6:21 pm
them so i don't think it's a universal thing. >> reporter: now, the school districts will be up to themselves to come up with the implementation plans and that's what they are doing at school districts like this one in mountain view. it's important to remember that this is optional not a mandate. in mountain view, len ramirez, cbs 5. it's not the fountain of youth yet. but scientists just got one step closer. >> and the link between sitting and cancer. how long is too long to stay still? we'll have that in two minutes. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:24 pm
taking steps. >> reporter: this attorney works long hours at a desk. exercise wasn't a priority until she found out she had breast cancer. >> the diagnosis was a wake-up call. >> reporter: new research suggests getting more active could help keep cancer away. cancer experts say as many as 49,000 cases of breast cancer and 43,000 colon cancer cases every year in the u.s. could be due to a lack of physical activity and long periods of sitting down. >> sitting is bad for you and sitting does trigger some of those biological mechanisms that are important in cancer risk. >> reporter: factors like hormone levels, insulin resistance and inflammation can increase if someone sits too long. that's a big concern since only 31% of americans say they get regular physical activity. >> between work, driving and relaxing at home, some people can spend most of the day sitting. but doctors recommend getting up every hour for at least a
6:25 pm
minute or two to move around. >> this is something that is modifiable and absolutely within the reach of every individual patient to make even minor adjustments in their lifestyles. >> reporter: worth haim made changes after her diagnosis and now walks more than 10,000 steps daily. >> i was hoping when i started the exercise regime to maintain my health and hopefully not get cancer again. at this stage though i like it. >> reporter: she says taking the right steps has kept her cancer-free for over a decade. bigad shaban, cbs news, northernp new york. it's not the fountain of youth but scientists may have figured out how it get there. researchers at the mayo clinic figured out how to kill off old cells that stopped working as they should, those so call zombie cells? they pile up as we get older. they secrete toxins that damage the surrounding tissue. scientists hope the discovery will lead to the development of anti-aging drugs that can fend off conditions that become more

"occupy oakland" encampment. the oakland city council is meeting now on the future of the "occupy oakland" encampment. this after yesterday's mass demonstrations dissolved into a night of destructive riots across the downtown area. three officers and five protestors were hurt in the clashes but police say they had no choice but to move in. here's a look at how it
6:30 pm
happened. it started when a group occupied a vacant building at 1th an telegraph. you can see the so-called black bloc members gearing up for the confrontation with police and that's exactly what happened. police moved in with tear gas. then anarchists set fire to the streets. and when other protestors tried to put out those fires, the anarchists literally fought back. >> reporter: they intensified their efforts using flash grenades and protestors threw rocks and bottles.
6:31 pm
in the early-morning hours, dozens of arrests and a tense standoff that lasted several hours. now, at this hour, the oakland city council is debating what to do about the "occupy" protestors. our robert lyles is there and says that the meeting is contentious with a lot of shouting back and forth. some residents saying that the occupiers need to be kicked out, one occupier protestor who refused to stop talking was removed by police. we are going to have more on this tonight at 10:00 and 11:00. we know the "occupy" movement is receiving some sizable donations to keep the cause alive. but how is that possible without using the very same banking institutions that are the focus of the frustration? a closer look at a small bay area company custom made for this which is now an international stand up against corporate greed.

public protest in new york, we said great. another donation campaign. people are passionate about something. we never imagined that it would turn into such a large momentous movement. >> reporter: but then "occupy" gained momentum and spread, so did word about we pay. >> we are seeing at this point almost 400 "occupy" campaigns created and across those 380 or 400 they have collected a combined $400,000. it's not a single organizer checking money for a single "occupy" campaign. >> thank you for coming to "occupy" the future. >> it's kind of a democratized use of our product. >> reporter: thus the ideological marriage of "occupy" and we pay. >> it's easier to be a kind company if your 30 employees as opposed to 3,000. >> reporter: a direct reference to paypal, which is being boycotted by "occupiers" because paypal is cooperating with the financial embargo against embattled wikileaks. we pay has actually been called the antipaypal. >> they say we are the antipaypal that's better because then they say you do what paypal does in a way that,

it happens all t imagine spending decades behind bars for a crime you didn't commit. it happens all the time of the usually from eyewitness mistakes. elizabeth cook shows us how one bay area police department is trying to change that. >> i think it's one of the happiest days of might have life. >> reporter: it's a day francisco will always remember. > mama. >> reporter: the day he got out of prison after serving 20 years for a drive-by murder he didn't commit. >> a car with three hispanics drove by, fired into a group of african-americans. >> reporter: he was 16 at the time, he was miles away at his father's house. yet six days later -- >> door gets kicked down. about 15 or 20 armed officers storm in order me and my father on the ground. i can clearly remember as i sit here that i could not understand why they were there. >> reporter: but the sheriffs
6:39 pm
who arrested him were sure they knew. an eyewitness had chosen his photo out of a line-up as the shooter, five other witnesses later came forward to say they had seen him, too, and a jury found him guilty. >> it was almost like an out of body experience. i just could not believe that they said those words. >> reporter: behind bars serving a 30-year sentence. carillo started thinking hard about what went wrong and came to one conclusion. >> how it involved me was that photo lineup . everything else had nothing to do with me. >> reporter: it turns out that his case is a classic example of problems with police line- ups. the mistakes came to light during court proceedings that led to his exoneration. >> we really needed to study what happened in terms of those eyewitness identifications. >> reporter: linda starr with the northern california "innocence project" helped public defenders to get carillo freed. >> we decided that we needed to see ourselves what could be seen under the circumstances as described by all the witnesses.

6:41 pm
of photographs. the person in this investigation may or may not be shown. >> reporter: without knowing the real suspect, the interrogator can't even inadvertently drop any hints you. >> it recognize that person? >> they can't accidentally, i don't think they do it on purpose, maybe show a gesture or show that picture a little bit longer. >> reporter: san jose police also use another new technique. they say it keeps the process honest. it's called a sequential lineup . the photos are shown one at a time and shuffled each time a different witness comes in. that's different from a traditional line-up called a six-pack in which witnesses are shown six numbered mug shots at the same time. in carillo's case, the six-pack line-up allowed the first witness to tell others what number mugshot he had chosen. >> he went back and talked to the other witnesses and told them it's number one. i'm sure it's number one. >> reporter: eventually all six witnesses recanted. but the investigator who
6:42 pm
allegedly influenced the main witness was never disciplined. and the sheriff's department never apologized. >> they just refused to accept the fact that they made a mistake. >> reporter: he is now pushing for all california police and sheriffs to adopt the new protocols. >> it's a broken system. i hope my case will in some way help others, you know, understand that reform needs to take place the sooner the better. >> reporter: rereached out to the l.a. county sheriff's department for comment on the case but they never got back to us. here in the bay area meanwhile we in that all police and sheriff's departments in santa clara county have adopted the new line-up protocols. several other agencies and other counties are considering them. elizabeth cook, cbs 5. the michael jackson manslaughter trial is now in the hands of the jury. both sides completed closing arguments today. the jury begins deliberations tomorrow. prosecutors argue that dr. conrad murray's reckless and negligent care left jackson's
