6:00 pm
was looting and vandalism, hundreds of arrests. that resulted in a $1.25 million settlement that went to the demonstrators. okay. you go up to 11, the dramatic riots with the "occupy" movement downtown. frank ogawa plaza, a lot of people were assaulted by police officers there. that resulted in a $1.17 million settlement. so we wanted to ask the police chief today with the threat of lawsuits coming from these demonstrators, is that affecting your officers' performance on the street? >> i talked to all of the officers last night and that's not anything that they told me. i mean, if it's in the back of their mind i guess it could be a possibility. i really don't think that's the case. i think really the officers -- we've done a lot of training about allow to, you know, safely make arrests in these type of scenarios and it is labor-intensive. it requires a fair number of officers to pull that off. and so that's really what drives it is they want to do it safely.
6:01 pm
>> reporter: so they are still wondering, you know, what is going on in the city of oakland with respect to the last 72 hours or so? the chief told us that frankly, saturday night they were caught flat-footed. they were completely surprised that there would be a verdict. he explains it this way, that it's very difficult for police to amass a force to take on a roving mob of demonstrators relatively quickly. the demonstrators have social media and they can be on bart in 10 minutes and over here or here already and go and start vandalizing streets and businesses and what not. he says it takes officers a lot longer to do that and it simply takes longer to ramp up to go after demonstrators. he had one clear example. he said, officers were watching somebody breaking a window across the street. by the time they could get across the street, that person who was masked was gone. just had run into the crowd. so you can kind of see the situation that oakland pd is
6:02 pm
facing right now. the problem is, people here are losing patience over it especially the citizenry. and there are a lot of questions being asked of the police department and the mayor's office. when are you going to do something to protect businesses, protect property here in oakland? reporting live from oakland, i'm ken bastida, kpix 5. >> thank you, ken. moving on to los angeles, demonstrations in l.a. got out of hand, as well. large crowds broke off from a peaceful gathering and vandalized their way through the streets of southwest los angeles last night. police chief charlie beck says he will allow protests in the street if they are peaceful but only if they are peaceful. >> to be sure, for those of you that were here last night and came for the wrong reasons, if you come here again tonight, you will go to jail. not only will you go to jail, but your actions will take away from the power of this moment.
6:03 pm
>> chief beck says protesting is a first amendment right that should be allowed and even facilitated but he will not tolerate violence. well, in oakland, we watched as a group of violent protestors used the trayvon martin verdict to vandalize businesses and attack people. kpix 5's mark sayre is at the flora restaurant at 19th and telegraph. a wait there are attacked with a hammer -- a waiter there attacked with a hammer. mark. >> reporter: oakland police estimate 250 people were involved in the protests and vandalism. a waiter at flora was attacked, there were broken windows and fires, leaving business owners on edge. the repairs continued into the afternoon along both broadway and telegraph avenues in oakland where businesses were targeted by protestors. workers cut up plywood and boarded up broken windows. for business owners like alexis, it is getting old. >> so we basically had to push people off the building and we got in confrontations with them. >> reporter: she owns the
6:04 pm
dogwood bar at 17th and telegraph and says the past two days have been scary. >> saturday night was really scary because we basically had this human shield the whole bar and, you know, my bartender and manager, he was outside with the fire extinguisher putting out fires because the fire department wasn't around. >> reporter: she says business owners are just trying to make a living and have nothing to do with the trayvon martin case. >> you know, it's smashing us and smashing flora and it's like i don't understand what these restaurants have to do with this movement. >> reporter: flora is just down telegraph avenue, where windows are still boarded up. it was here on monday night that waiter drew cribley was assaulted while trying to protect business. >> it's just terrible. >> reporter: oakland developer phil tagami had been dining at the restaurant just before the violence broke out. >> and then we got a phone call hearing that our waiter had been attacked with a hammer. >> reporter: but with the bad also comes the good.
6:05 pm
a volunteer team from hayward's day labor center showed up to help the businesses clean up. >> i'm almost tearing up right now because, uhm, the workers, uhm, like i said, they are a pretty poor. so if they can do volunteer time, anybody can do volunteer time. >> reporter: back to a live picture here at telegraph and 19th. kpix 5 spoke with the injured waiter drew cribley on the phone. mr. cribley says he cannot be sure it was a hammer that he was hit with. he says that his jaw and face hurt. but he is at home recovering. he says he hopes to be back at work here at flora in a couple of days. back to you. >> all right. as far as the arrests, though, mark, last night what do we know about the people arrested? >> reporter: not a lot. officially there were nine arrested. there were some felonies, assault with a deadly weapon, easiesing arrest among the
6:06 pm

6:07 pm
>> i wouldn't call them community activists. that's a pretty liberal use of the term for the folks that are vandalizing things. >> reporter: vandalism never makes sense. but this is even more senseless. >> it means so much to me just like a second place to call home a safety place where we can come and be ourselves. we are able to talk about anything. >> reporter: this girl has been here six years learning the craft of storytelling and radio with like-minded kids who might be looking for a safe place in an unsafe neighborhood that's been doing this for 20 years. the twitter sphere was alive. they busted the windows of youth radio, seriously? someone please try to justify that, you protestors attack youth radio how that ever parallels supporting trayvon martin or humanity is unfathomable. really sad to hear that people are ruining oakland. especially youth radio. >> you know, we service hundreds of youth every year, you know? and youth like trayvon and
6:08 pm
oscar grant. we are a community staple. >> reporter: maybe miles best will be able to make sense of it all in his commentary. in oakland, mike sugerman, kpix 5. >> it could cost youth radio $6,000 to fix the windows. pg&e will have to pay a $300 million fine for the san bruno explosion. regulators originally recommended pg&e spend $2.25 billion on safety improvements. now $300 million of that will be paid as a fine to the state's general fund. the 2010 explosion killed 8 people and destroyed 38 homes. checking bay area headlines now, firefighters heard a woman yelling for help from inside this burning home on parkside drive in walnut creek this afternoon. firefighters rescued her and at least 2 dogs. the cause of the fire is under investigation. san francisco police arrested two men after nearly three hours' standoff in the mission this morning. it started after a man called 911 and told police he had been shot in his home at bryant and
6:09 pm
22nd. officers surrounded that building and arrested the suspects just after 7:00. the victim should be okay but why was he shot? police aren't saying. you see her final moments and the terror on her face and you see the frustration and she realizes she is going to die. >> remembering the horror inside a bay area jewelry mart when police say a man killed two women. tonight we learned what may have set him off. >> another one-boat race that almost nobody showed up to watch today. how somber -- how some bay area homeowners are losing money because of the lack of attendance to watch the america's cup the temperatures barely in the 70s away from the water. more widespread cloud cover tomorrow and beyond, more coming up. >> in warehouse will soon be filled with workers. how you can get a job with the
