thank you. oakland was one of the many cities where the zimmerman verdict led to protests. chopper 5 followed a group near 14th and broadway last night. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is in oakland where protestors were mostly peaceful but, cate, there was some damage caused, as well. >> reporter: yes. you can see that aftermath behind me. some windows have been boarded up at the sears in downtown oakland. but as you mentioned these protests were peaceful especially in comparison to what we saw saturday. when police told the crowd last night it was time to go home, they did. protestors spent most of the day marching making noise on behalf of trayvon martin. some protestors burned the american flag and took their anger to the streets of oakland. this is what the city will have to clean up starting this morning. there was a good amount of damage done this weekend. people broke windows, vandalized cars and buildings but last night's protestors told us it was more about the
5:04 am
message not the mayhem. >> this is oakland. this is our home. and why rape where we live rather than try to pick it up? >> i don't get it. >> i don't think people want to hear from anybody throwing a tantrum which is what this is. >> reporter: oakland police say about 100 people came out. the crowd marched about five miles before settling at 14th and broadway. as of late last night, there were no reports of violence or arrests. reporting live in oakland, cate caugiran, kpix 5. oakland mayor jean quan issued a statement on the protests saying sadly some of them dishonored the memory of trayvon martin by engaging in violence that hurt the growing economy and endanger people. she added, we will not tolerate violence in our city. we must come together to heal and move forward. today demonstrators are expected to hit the streets of san francisco once again. protestors marched along a crowded market street
5:05 am
yesterday. they contend zimmerman should have been convicted and put the blame on the legal system. >> i think the next thing to prevent more trayvon martins is to attack that system to attack the root cause that every 28 hours a black person is killed by a police officer, security guard or some other similar individual. >> the protestors marched through san francisco's downtown area then ended their rally at justin herman plaza. 5:05. let's check weather and traffic on what looks like a dewy day. >> it is very dewy outside, yeah. very cloudy all around the bay area except for in concord where we have clear skies there but elsewhere we're looking at clouds sweeping onshore. looks like a cool start to the workweek. outside now it's cloudy with drizzle at the immediate coastline. the temperatures hovering mainly in the 50s outside. looks like toward the afternoon, these temperatures are going to be below average because of all of this. those clouds have really swept onshore overnight. so kind of a cool start to the week. in fact, the average temperatures usually topping
