6:01 pm
any chance this storm is going to do much for the reservoirs? >> not much. >> reporter: it's been dry here for most of the evening hours so we are waiting for the rain to come south as paul referenced. a lot of people are calling this is opening act for the storms season and so far it hasn't been that impressive. water districts in the bay area say we need 8" of rain to cause runoff and runoff especially in the north bay is critical. they get the majority if not all of their water from rainfall and runoff not from snowpack and snow melt. the snow melt in ukiah was at a 100 year low so the storm doesn't change that right now. it reminds us to turn off our garden hose or sprinklers and think about conservation. >> ying we'll get much out of this storm -- i don't think we'll get much of the storm out of this system to make much of
6:02 pm
a difference. the amount of rain falling now is going to soak into the ground. we get 70% of our water from rain for the seven reservoirs in the county. >> reporter: reservoirs are not depleted. marin says it's reservoirs are at 95% of average for this time of year but it has been dry. usually they see about 7" of rain by this time of the year. right now they have about an inch. what we have seen is that last year we had such an early, early rainy season that it set us up for what ended up a very dry year. what water managers are hoping this will be a typical year and we'll get the bulk of the storm system in december and january. >> it's not raining there now so you jinxed it. get your hood on because it's going to pour down on you in five minutes. >> reporter: that would be great. >> thank you, an an ann.

6:04 pm
protestors, there may be 200 of them here tonight. mostly people who live in the mission district. they are vocal but not violent. things are peaceful so far. they have been marching with banners and bull horns saying that police went too far this time demanding it stop and demanding somebody be held responsible. >> we are all here across the street to say no, we are not going to have police officers get paid this much money to threaten and beat up our kids. that's not going to happen here. [ inaudible ] >> he punched me twice when me hands were already behind me back. it was unnecessary, over the top and definitely something needs to be done about that. >> reporter: so this is what started it all. friday afternoon at valencia gardens undercover police told dj williams to stop riding his bicycle on the sidewalk. police say he didn't listen and then resisted arrest. that led to a brawl between a mob of residents and pack of
6:05 pm
police. dj williams and four others were arrested and people were beaten up like dj and orlando rodriguez who talked to me earlier today. >> that was brian webb live in the mission. thank you. we talked to san francisco police about the incident. they say they believe officers followed the proper procedures. san jose city hall is the new home of the west coast's first permanent patent and trademark office. kpix 5's len ramirez is there live where officials are celebrating something they have been waiting long, long time for. len, why is this important? >> reporter: well, they have been working for about 4 years on this and patents here in silicon valley as we have seen from the apple-samsung case can be worth hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars. it also costs entrepreneurs a lot of time and money traveling to the washington, d.c. area to the patent office to get a patent. but that is money they will no longer have to spend. >> here it the basics of how to
6:06 pm
use glass. >> reporter: from the heads up video display of google glass to the battery modules of tesla cars and even the so-called rectangular shape and rounded corners of apple's iphone, silicon valley is full of invention. but getting a patent has always been a pain. until now. >> government is coming to the customer rather than the customer going to government. innovators and entrepreneurs don't have to travel 3,000 miles to alexandria, virginia, to meet with a patent officer or a patent judge. they are going to be located right here. >> reporter: silicon valley leaders are excited over the government's latest innovation, regional patent offices including one which will be located inside san jose city hall. >> whether it was the cotton gin or google glass, that we we need to -- we need to make sure that innovate terse and entrepreneurs are protected and part of protected is the ease of the process and so this regional patent office is a game changer. >> reporter: the new patent office will be located on the 1th floor where, thanks to california's dismantling of redevelopment agencies, there
6:07 pm
is now plenty of office space for about a dozen patent judges and 60 patent examiners on the 14th floor. >> this is extraordinarily important and the contribution this city makes is worth every dollar that it might cost us but basically we are using space that's not generating a revenue right now so it's an easier thing for us to do. we don't have to kick people out in order to make the space available. >> reporter: the office should be busy. one out of every four u.s. patents comes from california and half of those are from silicon valley. san jose has more patents than any other city in america. >> this on the west coast is going to be the hotbed of patent filings fo asia, california, and everywhere in the area. >> reporter: there might be a line out the door. there is a backlog of thousands of patents waiting to be seen by the patent judges. live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> there are two other regional patent offices in progress right now one in denver the

6:09 pm
standing over his body. his father says the pain of his son's murder is made even worse by having the tragedy on display for the world to see. >> it's really hard and painful for my family because like i say, all the memories coming back. >> reporter: jose barrera has asked that google remove the image of his son's body and yesterday, he got an unprecedented agreement to do so. in a statement, the company said, google has never accelerated the replacement of updated satellite imagery from our maps before. but given the circumstances, we wanted to make an exception in this case." the company says it may take up to 8 days to do this. but the image will be replaced. but that doesn't end it for jose barrera because after four years, whoever killed kevin is still at large. richmond police say they followed what leads were available at the time with no success. and they are hoping the recent publicity will revive the case. >> we hope that it cap -- can
6:10 pm
maybe bring some light back on the face and some people who weren't willing prior may be willing now to come forward with information. >> reporter: they say this image may be enough for a silent witness to have a change of heart. >> with time passing they might not be scared or they may feel remorseful or may have heard some information from somebody else. >> i feel like now, we are going to get something, some resolve. >> reporter: jose barrera will never really get over the death of his son but hopes all the renewed interest will bring justice to the killer. in richmond, john ramos, kpix 5. >> richmond police are asking anyone with information about this case to please come forward. new tonight the national rifle association is taking on a strict gun ordinary nas recently approved in san francisco. the nra filed a lawsuit today challenging the ban on gun magazines that hold more than
6:11 pm
10 rounds of ammunition. the nra argues the magazines are protected under the second amendment. the magazine ban is set to take effect on december 8. it's an attack on common sense gun laws designed to save lives. the deal that could end the dispute we san jose and the police department that agreement would restore a 10% pay cut that officers took a few years ago. but it's not known whether it will be enough to stop the large numbers of officers who have been leaving to take jobs with other departments. >> on one hand it's good that we'll get some money into our officers' pockets. some still trying to hold on to their homes. on the other hand, though, in 2015, our officers are still going to be making what they were making in 2009. >> i'm hopeful that we can focus on growing the police force getting the full staffing back and that will be the focus of our efforts both for the city and the police union. >> the deal still has to be
6:12 pm

6:16 pm
other bibles on there and all of them said fiction. >> reporter: the pastor was surprised and since he posted that on friday the response has been enormous. >> a lot of people were upset. some people were fine with it. to me, i don't know why you would label something as fiction. >> what are bibles normally lis under? >> in our store under religion. >> reporter: we went to book soup a bookstore on sunset boulevard in hollywood to find out what category bibles are placed in. pat walker says fiction is not the norm, something a staffer with l.a. city libraries would agree with. if you can inventory book sections enough to have a fiction nonfiction then you can create another section for religion. >> reporter: today, cbs 2 purchased a copy of the king james bible at the costco in question and take a look. it appears as though the fiction labeling has been peeled off and released with this generic price tag. >> it shows how polarizing the
6:17 pm
bible is and how polarizing jesus can be, he is either liar, lord or lunatic as cs lewis said. >> reporter: we reached out to costco. they declined our request. caleb did the same and they told him it was a processing error something he says he believes. he also says he will be back to shop at this costco again. in simi valley, bobby kapel, kpix 5. >> earlier this year costco drew criticism from conservatives for its ban on guns in its stores. we have the rain that you promised. thank you. >> it's here. if anything it's going to get more impressive through the evening. the rain will be picking up tomorrow night and into the next day and tonight and wednesday are going to be soggy out there. look at what we have. the award for heaviest rainfall is healdsburg. really coming down on 101 in both sonoma and marin counties. picking up light rain.
