7:00 am
in a trail of blood were found in santa is the we will take a look at the latest to is. >> we are waiting for president obama to address the nation about his plans to bring home troops from afghanistan will have a preview coming up. >> we are watching the weather, a cloudy start over san francisco, with the cloud coverage means cooler weather. more on that any minute. >> the bay bridge back up is back, again it is a metering lights delay even though we have been incidents free on the upper deck, we are slow from west grand ave. i will have a complete traffic check coming up. >> 7:00 a.m. is the time, more trouble for your is airways apparently a baggy saggy look is not ok, but cross dressing is allowed. this is the latest controversy this is a man on youtube, he has taken numerous lives while cross dressing, there is one of his outfits, there is
7:01 am
another when he was allowed to board a u.s. airways like in florida on june 9th, that was less than one week before and here at sfo that passenger was kicked off because he refused to block his pants that were showing his boxer shorts. this man, passengers complained about it, but he did not have to change before boarding. u.s. airways employees were asked to correct it, but they said they did not tell the guy to change because the airline does not have a dress code policy. but they did have a dress code policy they said when they ask the university of new mexico football player deshon marmen to pull up his pants and because his underwear were showing when he was wearing the saggy pajama pants. he refused and that caused a problem and he ended up being arrested because they say he was interfering with the flight crew and resisting arrest and causing problems at the airport so he was arrested
7:02 am
this other passenger was allowed to fly the question is, was it a racial discrimination is it a double standard for some reason, when wilbur--will tran has been asking questions out there and what people have to say? it >> people agree with some of the naysayers including the attorney for deshon marmen, they believe it is a double standard, according to u.s. airways they said the cross dresser was not showing skin on his buttocks, so he did not violate any thing although he probably violated common decency and good taste. but a lot of people that i talked this morning said they would definitely look but not approach the pilot and tell him to talk with the man. in fact, here is some reaction that i got moments ago. >> oh definitely a double standard, you see women traveling with a lot more showing that mr. saggy pants and his boxers.
7:03 am
[laughter] >> if you saw this man in women's underwear boarding your flight which is say something to the pilot or which you just look at him go about your life? >> i am just going right on with my life. it is not at all my business what people wear. i think that he clearly is not concealing anything dangerous dangerous [laughter] >> i would hate to be the person to do the pat down on that one. we talk with another passenger and she said you would hate to sit on the same seat after he got up, i will have more reaction coming up at 7:30 a.m., including an african- american man that says yes, this is racial discrimination. >> the question that we have been asking this morning is what is the dress code on u.s. airways. we actually founded on a website. we want to show it to everyone right now, they say, we require that all passengers traveling are to dress and casual business
7:04 am
attire. u.s. airways gate agents are instructed to enforce this dress code and passengers who fail to dress appropriately may be denied boarding, this is right off the web site basically all i did was google u.s. airways and found it, the question now is what is casual business attire is and not pulling your pants up? or is it what that guy was wearing in the midriff top. >> i guess it depends on what business you're in. now president obama addressing the nation about his plan to bring the u.s. troops home by the end of next year. the president's plan is to withdraw 30,000 u.s. troops, roughly 10 down by the end of this year, that means 5000 this summer and another 5000 this winter. the remaining 20,000 come home next year, returning level troops in afghanistan to what was before the president announced the 2009 surge in afghanistan to control the rising violence.
7:05 am

7:06 am
coast. it just depends on where you are 77 01, 81 for hayward and fremont, down in south bay it is a good 10 degrees cooler than yesterday's forecast. and then often these they, antioch, livermore and it still sounds hot but not as nearly half as the 100 degree weather that they had to endure yesterday. it looks as though the weather will continue to get better and better as we head towards the begin with the temperatures milling out day by day thursday and friday a few more degrees, by saturday and sunday inland locations will only one up into the low 80s, morning fog will only be with us for the next seven. how was traffic and george? >> still pretty slow, but if you're grabbing your keys at home and ready to head out the door, if you're wondering where is the hot spot? the good news that there are not any. the the back up is reaching all the way to west grand ave. even the 880 approach is slow. i cannot over emphasize that this is a metering light back up. there have been no
7:07 am
incidents at the bay bridge. there is not enough traffic to warrant these kinds of delays. but there you are. your ride to the san mateo bridge, a much nicer alternate, no back up, no delay in no metering lights on the approach. 92 is an easy ride coming over from a 80. how's the golden gate bridge? it looks good coming across the span. you may even the windshield wipers at the center of the bridge, but it is an easy ride through and across the golden gate. as 7:07 a.m., kron4 news will take a break and not until i show you this. san francisco, it looks good on the ride through the city, no delays on the inbounds central, still in 18 minute drive time now break, and we will be right back.

7:11 am
a woman that lives in the area and she said she was concerned. >> when they wrapped the body and put them in the back of the van and off the wind. a lot police, a lot of yellow tape, this is scary. you know, concern, not knowing who was. >> the victim is described as a man in his 20s, he was fully clothed, his body was pulled from the one the police have not given any information about a motive or suspects or what they think would happen. >> a quick break as we continue with the news, and of a look at the golden gate were the fog is really ticked and visibility is down to a quarter mile.
7:12 am
the bay area -- a place with natural beauty and a forward thinking spirit. at bank of america, we've been fueling economic growth here for over a century. today we're investing in innovations that will define our future. every day, we're working to help set opportunity in motion. from financing a solar project for the milpitas school district to funding the institute at golden gate. because when you're giving, lending, and investing in more communities across the country, more opportunities happen.
7:13 am
7:14 am
>> new image is out of with chicago--out of chicago. tornadoes were ripping through chicago, 75 mi. per hour winds brought down trees and power lines. the power company said 300,000 customers lost power overnight, and commuters were stranded on trains yesterday afternoon. it could be days before the power is restored. this also will result in bad weather at the airport. passengers were sleeping on cots at
7:15 am
chicago o'hare. 350 flights were cancelled, at one point, airport personnel had to take passengers down to the lower baggage area after a tornado is a threat was to sweep through. even joe biden had to wait for his claimed to be: delayed. now thousands are facing in evening deadline to leave their home as the waters continue to increase at a rapid rate. they're told to leave by 6:00 p.m. this evening, they will sound warning sirens if the waters were to spill over the levees earlier. >> now we do not have any water inside, we're done with that and we're on to the sunshine. >> this is the cloud coverage over sentences for right now, someone the problems over the sea area,
7:16 am
interestingly enough, there is a flood of advisory not because of the storm, but the high temperatures has caused a enough of the snow to melt up there that they're worried about the rivers of overflowing. now we are dealing with the cooler temperatures this morning. we will deal with the cloud coverage through out most of the morning, maybe it will burn off enough the san francisco will see some good sunshine. sunny and warm this 98 afternoon, not nearly as high as yesterday. we will get that fog back into the mix tomorrow morning. that will be a fixture in our forecast for a little while. now talking about the temperatures that we see outside, mainly in the '50s and '60s, 525 as go, 54 oakland, 66 antioch, have not see much movement in the numbers and maybe that is because of the layer of cloud coverage that we have over is not letting the morning sun starts to warm the earth just yet, but it will happen and we will start to see the temperatures rise. about
7:17 am
2:00 or 3:00 we should reach these temperatures, 82 napa, fairfield to talk out and 93 degrees which is nowhere near the 100 that we had yesterday so some relief. 77 oakland, 81 in hayward, fremont and san jose coming in at 85, 90 degree weather in los gatos. if you plan on traveling near the livermore valley or out of the delta, you are looking to mid to low 90s it rather than the upper 90s that we had a day ago. now we are a key for the cooling trend to continue dropping the temperatures down by saturday and sunday. the inland spots lose 10 degrees. it will be holding steady for the bay and the coastline. los '70's and low 60s respectively, house traffic george? >> not doing too bad james. we are looking at some delays especially at the bay bridge. we have been incidents free at the bay bridge, but it is back up
7:18 am
again. the north bound 80 commute backed up almost all the way over the toll plaza and 580 west bound is back up to west grand ave. i would not be surprised if this back up starts to reach the macarthur maze. again, confirming with the chp, there have been no incidents at the bay bridge this morning to account for the backup. this is nothing more than a metering lights be laid on what should be a light and easy ride based on the volume to the bay bridge. but if he keeps on like this, it could become a hot spot because you are not expecting to waste this much time at the bay bridge toll plaza costing u.s. lead in extra 20 to 25 minutes right now. how is the san mateo bridge right? not bad off. take a look at this, no delays on 92, it isn't easy ride in a good alternate if you have the option. the golden gate bridge drive, 1 01 south bound, fog all you
7:19 am
have to deal with carried you may need to use the wind chill wipers for the drizzle. now the 680 traffic is slow in the southbound direction. there have been no problems reported, but it is not unusual to see delays like this for the southbound interstate 680 ride. remember, that is what qualifies a hot spot as an unusual delay, or a slowdown for your commute, or for some major incident that is tying up traffic. again, that is what the bay bridge may become at the back up continues to grow. >> thanks a lot, as 719 a m. we are expected for an update on the giants san bryan stow, they're supposed to hold a press conference at 10:00 a.m. this morning. just a couple hours this morning before we find out about bryan stow he was beaten at the giants stadium. he remains at the hospital and the chief of neurosurgery will speak this

of the ramp as we head down to the toll plaza flats, i will have a complete traffic check coming up. >> and other controversies surrounding u.s. airways and the dress code, this time it involves a cross dressing man from fort lauderdale to phoenix, here is video of the man that we found from he is taking numerous flights while dressed like this or similarly. he was allowed to board a u.s. airways flight on june 9th wearing similar clothing that flight took off from florida, passengers complained to the airline employees about the man's appearance before boarding the they were ignored. u.s. airways says that the employees were correct not asking the man to cover himself because they said the airlines do not have a dress code policy. this happened just days before a university of mexico football player deshon marmen was yanked from a slight at sfo and was arrested for refusing to pull up his sagging pants. after repeated refusals from him to pull up his pants,
7:32 am
their reported it to the airline's capt. it was a disruption on the plane in the police were called in to assist, last week u.s. airways says they do not have a dress code but they ask people to dress and inappropriate manner to ensure the safety of all passengers. so is wearing sagging pants worse than what we saw the other gentleman wearing? some people are accusing u.s. airways of racial discrimination saying that the saggy pants incident was not about pants at all. with more reaction to this controversy, we are live at sfo. good morning. >> to answer your question, all the trouble was that i spoke with this morning said they would rather see sagging pants than the cross dressing man. apparently travelers at sfo are not very shocked. this is the picture that we to show on youtube is interesting and amusing as something that they would probably not approach the pilot on. i got some reactions from travelers this morning and this is what one man had to say after i showed him the picture.
7:33 am
>> do you see a double standard, or do you think that is okay? >> and you have to be fair with everybody. if that guy is wearing a bikini and the other guy is sagging his pants, that is the way it works. it is pretty exceptional to wear your pants pretty low now. it is pretty funny, but it definitely needs to be a double standard for everybody. >> if you saw that, would be disturbed? >> it is pretty normal in sanford's is go but i would be disturbed. >> 1 woman even joked about it, i do not even think she was joking, but she said it is the cross dressing man, you know that he is not concealing anything and another woman said she would rather not sit on a chair after he is done. i promise i will get more reaction from travelers dropped morning. >> thank you for the update, we have a lot of people talking about this story. justine has more. >> we've learned to know was the dress code for u.s. airways it was simple to
7:34 am
find, all i did was google u.s. airways dress code and it took me to the web site so here it is. "we require that all travelers are to dress in a casual business attire, the officials are to enforce this dress code and passengers that fail to dress appropriately may be denied boarding. "this is right off of their web sites of the question is what is proper attire? is a pajama bottom in jeans, or is it made rooftops? this is what we are discussing on our fan facebook page post a comment and we may read it on air. >> tonight president obama addresses the nation about his plan to bring home troops from afghanistan by the end of next year. his plan is to withdraw 30,000 troops. roughly 10,000 by

the end of this year, 5000 troops by the end of the summer and another 5000 by winter. the remaining 20,000 would come home next year, returning the level of troops in afghanistan to what was before the 2009 surge to control the rising balance there. it currently 100,000 american troops are still fighting in afghanistan. we will air the president's speech in its entirety at 5:00 p.m. tonight on kron4. we also will screen in live on our web site at >> and now we have at the area weather up, the fog is back thick, let us found out about where it will cool down. >> good morning, taking a quick look, we have been seen this in the morning shot all morning. sunny and warm this afternoon, the temperature in the '70's and 90's, this evening, we will remain kind of clear. then the cloud will rebuild, and of fog will come back into view. fog in the morning
7:36 am
will be a fixture here on kron4 news. here we are, low 60s down in san jose, out in the east bay, concord 60 antioch 66 at the moment. not bad especially considering where we were at this time yesterday when we are looking at sweltering temperatures. 87 santa rosa, as opposed to 95 that we had on the map yesterday morning, 62 to about 63, maybe upper 60s in san francisco. the tricky part is the fog if it hangs around a little too long, we will not get that afternoon warming that we like to see but if the birds off quicker, we will probably get temperatures up into the mid '70s. 91 down and pleasanton, the delta will be in the low 90s, mid '80s down in the south bay, san jose at 85, 9 via los gatos, mt. view and sunnyvale coming in at 77.

7:38 am
the traffic that we deserve because there are no metering lights at the bridge. over the golden gate, 1 01 south bound is a ride through the fog as you head into marin county. a smooth move with no delays reported or even for the ride through marin county. at 7:30 a.m., we will take a quick break, we are with you until 11:00 a.m., excuse me until 10:00 a.m. and will be right back.

7:47 am
still go in and. >> it will still be warm especially all the way out there on the other side oakland hills down to the valley. out into the delta and the livermore valley, he will be in the upper eighties to low 90s. but not the triple digit whether that is some good news. here is a live look at the golden gate bridge, it is full of fog this morning. warming up to 60 incenses go by noon. maybe even a little warmer than that it depends on the fog if it sticks around, 62 is what we would deal with, it burns often we get some sunshine sooner rather than later, we may be even see some 70 degree weather will you know as the day goes on. as for the temperature right now, 64 in napa, 60 hayward, 63 down in san jose. you are starting to one of a little bit, 70 in antioch, the first 70 degree on the map out in the delta. that will be one of our warmer locations come this
7:48 am
afternoon. let us talk about how warm it will be first off in the north bay, 82 degrees in napa, or 875 a rosa. as you can tell is a little bit cooler. me to possibly upper 60s in san francisco, oakland is at 77. that is nice, we are forecasting the mid-90s yesterday. 77 is much better, and 85 down in san jose as for the east bay locations it will be in the low 90s this afternoon. your seven day forecast shows that we continue cooling as we head for the final three days of the week. wednesday, thursday and friday did cooler day by day. plenty of sunshine in the afternoon the inland hires only at the low 80s. people along the bay, will be in the low '70's, anyone at the coast, will deal with the low sixties for that matter. the lingering fog that will stick around a little longer true today. now--longueur through the day. now a check at our traffic.
7:49 am
>> traffic is backed up at the 880 approach all the way across the toll plaza, again, traffic is backed up to west grand ave. not as bad a day as yesterday, but no reason for it because we have had no incidents on the upper deck. if the san mateo bridge ride, westbound traffic is a little heavier than at other times this morning, but only a minor way to the toll plaza, no major problems. 92 is a good commute. no hot spots, that is good news. let us head over to the golden gate bridge, the only thing that you'll have to contend with is the fog and the southbound direction. the 1 01 ran ride still looks good. a few patches of slow and go traffic in northern iran. just head to san jose as in the to the ride to interstate 280. this is in the northbound direction. traffic starts to slow up right here. this is highway 17 and actually as it crosses interstate 280 goes

8:01 am
one week before that, a cross dresser was able to fly and he was wearing, let me show you some of the outfits that this man was seen wearing on youtube. he has taken numerous flights while cross dressing he was allowed to board a u.s. airways flight the same airline that had the controversy last time. it was a flight in florida on june 9th. he was wearing women's panties, mid high, high stockings and high heels. you can see what he wears. the passengers even complained. but they did not do anything about it, and u.s. airways at the time said we do not have a dress code. as long as someone is not showing their private parts, that is okay. apparently, it was not ok one week later when a black man, a new mexico football player deshon marmen was wearing pants that were sagging around his waist line and showing his boxers, his underwear and he refused to pull them up, they said he had to and he did not. he
8:02 am
was arrested because of his disruption and disobey the rules, or what they told him to do. now his lawyer says hold on a second, how come a white guy can wear women's underwear and a black man cannot wear baggy pants? that is the question this morning, what do you think? is in a double standard? if the discrimination? will is live at sfo this morning and you have been asking passengers all morning long with the they have to say? >> his attorney is getting a lot of support, and went around and talk with a lot of passengers. they believe that it is racial discrimination and one passenger said wait until the man comes out of his shell when he stops being shot. here is some reaction that i got moments ago. >> i would laugh. i would just hope that i was not sitting next to this guy. either probably be more disturbed that this man than the man that were the saggy pants. >> will do think if this man was on your flight? >> i would hope he would

8:07 am
grand avenue about a foot or at the edge of the mac arthur maze. the backup has not grown here lately on the 880 approach. but as i have said all morning and this is nothing more than a meeting like the late. there have been no incidents on the bay bridge, there should be hardly any back up because the traffic volume is pretty light. if you want, you can take the san mateo bridge, that would save you some time even with the south bound ride. see also the conditions continue to deteriorate this may not be such an attractive alternative for people are coming from oakland. the golden gate bridge ride has been fog the and now it is getting a little heavier but still a pretty smooth commute. there are still no major delays through the county to 1 01 south bound. now let us go to the kron4 news room, justine has an update. >> they do so much, let us go live to orlando florida where there will only be at half a day at the casey anthony murder trial. here is what has happened so far this morning, the defense

8:35 am
as for the warmer spot on the map, right now the delta you already have 70 degree weather. did not worry, you will get into the 90s today, but not as near as hot as mr. de when we had records broken is today. turns out that hayward did in fact break there were record yesterday coming in at 84 degrees the world record was 83. not speaking of 83 sonoma is coming in at 83, much cooler than yesterday, senses the will be in the low to mid 60's but you could get into the upper 60s as well as the bidding on how much sunshine and how quickly the fog will move off of you. a little warmer in danville, 88 there, 89 in walnut creek. low nineties for pittsburg, antioch, pleasanton, livermore. and upper 80s and down in the south, the campbell, maybe 93 temperatures on the thermometer for those in los gatos. 77 in sunnyvale

8:37 am
bridge--bridge. so coming from interstate 80, it will be slow after the berkeley curve, slow on the 585 over if that is your approach. but the 880 approach, it has been growing in the last 20 minutes. it is still not back up completely over the toll plaza, this is much slower than it needs to be. the san mateo bridge right, that is the cameras stopped, but not the traffic. from time to time at the golden gate bridge, they have been closing off one of the toll lanes. southbound lane number six, it has been backing up traffic throughout south anchorage, it is usually a temporary closure, so we will likely see this back up very quickly on the southbound side. now south bay san jose as we pick up our camera with typically slower traffic from the guadalupe parkway on 1 01 north bound. public transit has been
