tv   KTVU Mornings on 2 at 6am  FOX  July 19, 2016 6:00am-7:01am PDT

6:00 am
ended with several people being detained. mornings on 2 continues. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> good morning. thank you for waking up with us on this tuesday morning, july 19th, i'm pam cook. >> and good morning, i'm dave clark. let's talk about weather. you have the weather under control, pam. >> well, i was in the city yesterday evening, it was very foggy and breezy and chilly. totally different story in the east, right? >> sunny but breezy. >> right. >> it was nice yesterday, it was nice. it cooled off yesterday and about the same today. might be a jump up of maybe a couple of degrees but overall still below average and there's plenty of low clouds around. i have no problem. the water temps are about 51, 55 and you get a system sweeping down from the pacific northwest, that certainly enhances the low cloud deck. we have probably maxed it out. michael coin in the santa cruz mountains, a cool 50 with heavy fog below 1700 feet, clear skies above, but couple weeks ago i remember he was in the 70s on the temp so cooler air aloft has made it inland, temps
6:01 am
in the upper 70s for some to again pretty far inland you can find 80s. around the coast and bay 60s and 70s at best. we are running slightly below average on our temps here. temperatures have cooled off, looks like yesterday was probably the coolest day and today will be close. i think some locations won't change much at all, others might come up a degree or two, 50s, low to mid to upper. woodside cooler, stanford, atherton, menlo park, low 50s, 40s, mid-50s san mateo, also belmont, 55, 56. there's an okay breeze, for some it will be blustery at times. there's our system which continues to play into our weather giving us a cooldown along much of the west coast. low clouds, sunny, breezy, windy in spots, some morning mist, drizzle, coast and bay. little bit more inland yesterday, not as much today. upper 70s and 80s. sal, 6:01. something on your screen there we should know about? >> not a lot but there is slow traffic steve. you will see that traffic is going to be busy at the bay bridge toll plaza, for example, let's go right to it. you can see traffic is going to
6:02 am
be backed up for about 50 minute delay before you make it onto the bridge. not too bad. we don't have a lot of incidents according to chp. we did have a b.a.r.t. delay from pittsburgh in the outbound direction out of san francisco so actually from san francisco to pittsburgh, some equipment problems, shouldn't be a major deal but there was a delay on b.a.r.t. if you timed the trains. most people just get down there and hope a train gets there when they get to the platform. move along and take a look at westbound 92 as you head out to the high-rise you can see traffic is moving along okay getting out to the san mateo bridge and to the peninsula. and in san jose northbound 101280 and 85, so far mostly good on the way to the valley. 6:02. go back to the desk. new this morning a carjacking and chase in the east bay ended with three suspects being detained. it all ended in san leandro near east 14th and bancroft. that's where ktvu's brian flores is right now to talk about how this all started. brian. >> reporter: yeah, you know, we
6:03 am
are working together more -- we are working to gather more information, pam. aftermath, east 14th and bancroft here in san leandro. you can see the scene is clear but you can see the skid marks on the street here and a pedestrian sign that is knocked down. earlier this was not the scene, several police officers were here trying to catch these carjacking suspects. in fact, let's go to the video now to show you that we have in our newsroom from what we understand this all started when three men carjacked a driver just outside a toys "r" us store in hayward. authorities chased the suspects but it appears at least according to the video that the driver crashed the car pretty badly, at least on the passenger side, again, near east 14th and bancroft. this was just before 2:00 this morning. we also understand that the suspects ran away into the neighborhood and then officers had to go door to door looking for them and at times, as you will see in the video, having their guns drawn because they really didn't know if the suspects were armed but the suspects were eventually caught and from the video looks like two of the suspects were
6:04 am
wheeled away in ambulances. as we take it back out here live, it remains unclear their injuries this morning. also unclear the condition of the carjacking victim but again we are working to gather more information but the scene is clear here on east 14th and bancroft here in san leandro. as soon as we get more information, we will definitely pass that along here on mornings on 2. back to you, pam. >> thank you, brian. 6:04. more speakers and some of them are big names will take the stage today in cleveland, ohio at the republican national convention. but one speech from last night has a lot of people talking this morning. ktvu's alex savidge in the studio now with more on why some, alex, are accusing donald trump's wife of plagiarism. >> good morning to you, dave. melania trump's speech is certainly stirring quite a bit of controversy this morning. she says she wrote most of the speech herself but there were some portions that sounded quite familiar to many people. now, this was the first time that many of the delegates in cleveland got to hear from melania trump. she took the stage, she made the case for her husband,
6:05 am
calling donald trump a man who can get things done. but two passages of her speech last night were strikingly similar to a speech by first lady michelle obama which she delivered at the democratic national convention back in 2008. >> my parents impressed on me the value that you work hard for what you want in life, that your work is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect. >> barack and i were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you're gonna do, that you treat people with dignity and respect. >> now in response to the controversy over melania trump's speech, the campaign put out a statement, it doesn't address the similarities directly but it says, quote, in
6:06 am
writing her beautiful speech, melania's team of writers took notes on her life's inspirations and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking. melania's immigration experience and love for america shown through in her speech which made it such a success. now, looking ahead here is the schedule of speakers today at the republican national convention, speakers include new jersey governor chris christie, former presidential candidate dr. ben carson, speaker of the house paul ryan and two of trump's children, tiffany and donald trump, jr., will be taking the stage and the theme today at the rnc, making america work again. but, of course, all -- most folks are talking about online and social media is the similarities between melania trump's speech and obama's speech. >> are you getting a sense that the speeches will have any impact on the voting? because we have been talking about a lot of people really have already made up their mind but -- >> the campaign is being asked about it directly.
6:07 am
they are denying the accusations of plagiarism that are out there and in fact they are trying to -- i was just reading that they are trying to sort of turn this around and say that this is an attempt by the hillary clinton campaign to paint melania trump in a negative light, if you will. so it could play into the politics of all of this and be more than just internet foughter but i guess we will have to see how it shakes out throughout the day. clearly something people are talking about as they wake up this morning. >> definitely talking about it. thank you, alex. >> sure. time is 6:07. well, on day 1 of the republican convention, delegates held a vote and they approved their party platform. some call it the republican party's most conservative platform ever. social issues the platform rejects same-sex marriage, it also -- and also transgender bathroom choices. the platform language says the cornerstone of the family is natural marriage, the union of one man and one woman. a uc berkeley political science experiment says the platform is nonbinding so it probably
6:08 am
won't have a big impact on donald trump's policies. >> by allowing the conservative base to put that plank in, it appeases them and maybe allows them to stomach the nomination of donald trump. >> now, on donald trump's signature stand for building a wall on the mexican border, the republican platform states that a border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border, it must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. we are going to have a lot more coverage of the republican national convention throughout the morning for you including a live report from cleveland and we will tell you what hillary clinton was doing in another part of ohio. it's all coming up at 6:30. also new from overnight, an investigation is now underway into a shooting in oakland. officers responded to reports of gun fire at 12th street and broadway at about 10:00 last night. so far police are not talking about the incident except that it was a shooting. our news crew reported seeing a
6:09 am
victim slumped inside a car. officers blocked off the area for hours overnight as they looked for evidence. people in oakland will have a chance today to give their input on possible formation of a powerful police commission which may have the ability to fire future police chiefs. the proposed citizen police commission will be discussed at tonight's city council meeting. the proposal comes at a time when oakland's police force is besieged by scandals, including allegations of sexual misconduct. the new commission would hold public hearings, have the ability to review police policies and propose changes to the city council. a vote is not likely until next week but if approved by the council, it will go before voters in november. time is now 6:09. hundreds of people gathered at a baton rouge church last night honoring one of the police officers shot and killed on sunday. friends say 41-year-old matthew gerald knew the dangers of military life and police work but was compelled to serve. people below live in the
6:10 am
neighborhood where he died say he often waved or smiled at them while he was on patrol and they say they are supporting each other through this difficult time. >> i think our community is very strong, we are very united. it doesn't mean we don't have problems. we will address those problems as a community. >> the mourners also say they don't want people to judge baton rouge for a shooting carried out by someone who came in from another state. the police now say there's video showing the gunman targeting police and sheriff's deputies while passing by civilians. the shootings of police in baton rouge and dallas in the last two weeks has many police officers on edge. one of our crews spent the day on a ridea long with veteran san jose police officer robert payne who has been on the force for 25 years. he says putting on the uniform has been harder lately. he wants people to know that police are people first and that means most are at the least a little bit scared. he also gets emotional when he talks about how police know
6:11 am
their job is still to protect the public. >> i don't suit up to come hurt people nor does any of my partners. >> he says there has been an outpouring of support from the community. signs, blue ribbons and thank you letters keep showing up at police headquarters and he says the show of appreciation has been overwhelming and gratifying and it does make it a little bit easier to do his job during this very difficult time. >> i bet it does. time is 6:11. remembering a uc berkley student who was killed in that terror attack in nice, france. up next, how his death may change the university's entire study abroad program. m. coming up at 6:30, a possible bb gun shooting at uc berkley. the investigation after one student was hurt. good morning. we are looking at a commute that is getting busier now,
6:12 am
coming around the macarthur maze and heading to the bay bridge toll plaza. another decent fog bank out there, cool lows this morning, probably notice that. will it stay cool on the high temps? a little bit. we will have the details coming up. ♪ is the world truly ready for a vehicle that can drive itself? an autonomous-thinking automobile that protects those inside and outside. ready or not, the future is here.

welcome back to mornings on 2. time is 6:14. isis now claiming responsibility for a vicious attack on a passenger train in germany where four people were hurt. the claim was made just hours after a 17-year-old who had a
6:15 am
knife and an ax attacked train passengers and four people from hong kong were hurt. two are in critical condition. now, police shot and killed the attacker as he tried to get away. the investigators say he was in afghanistan and had arrived in germany back in march as a refugee. they also say that a note found in his room is indicating he may have been himself been radicalized. following the bastille day attack some people in france are calling for the country's prime minister to step down. thousands of people held a moment of silence yesterday at the promenade where the attack occurred last thursday. a group of mourners then yelled at the prime minister to resign. right wing politicians in france blame the attack on the security policies of france's socialist government. in other news the uncle of the attacker says his nephew was radicalized about two weeks ago by a member of isis. because of the volatile situation around the world, uc berkeley is now considering whether to make changes to its
6:16 am
student abrought -- abroad program. they mourned the death of nick leslie. he was the second berkeley student killed in recent terrorist attacks while studying overseas and some students say terrorism is now a factor to consider when deciding where to study. >> kind of scares me and just like rethinking about the process of maybe doing it because just don't feel safe anymore. >> obviously i'm a little bit apprehensive about the situation in europe. i mean, there's more immigrants coming in than ever before but that's the worst that you're -- risk that you're willing to take and i'm excited to go abroad. >> because of the violence in turkey, uc berkeley cancelled the study abroad program there for the summer and the fall. time is 6:16. the golden state warriors are another step closer now to building their new arena in san francisco. a superior court judge ruled the city's environmental review and approval process for the mission bay location was adequate. the group called the mission
6:17 am
bay alliance had filed several lawsuits saying the warriors did not consider alternative sites for that arena. they argue the new arena will cause traffic jams and also slow access to ucsf medical facilities. the group has five days to decide if they will appeal that court ruling. the warriors, meantime, say they look forward to breaking ground soon. they are hoping to open what will be called the chase center in 2019. wildlife officials say the animals spotted in san mateo thought to be a mountain lion was actually just a domestic cat. now, we showed you this photo yesterday. a neighbor in a mostly residential area took the photos sunday night, called the police. the police set up a perimeter, couldn't find the animal. yesterday wildlife officials analyzed this photo and figured out the sign was just 2 feet wide so the size of the cat below it ruled out a mountain
6:18 am
lion. but they do say it was good of san mateo police to be cautious. >> i will say. 6:18 is the time. let's check in with sal. what are some traffic issues? are you following any spots in particular? >> well, there was a b.a.r.t. delay for trains coming out of the city. there was an equipment problem at the montgomery station. not causing -- it's not going to be a major delay but there are going to be some delays. it's getting better according to b.a.r.t. i'm going to just update with them after we get off this traffic report, just check in. sometimes things change, so we are going to stay on top of it for you. bay bridge is backed up for a 15 to 20 minute delay. no major problems getting into the city. let's move along and take a look at the south bay commute where it looks pretty good for the most part. checking in on 280 in particular, northbound 280, driving through downtown san jose is off to a good start. now today's weather, let's go to steve. >> thank you, sir. fog out there, a little mist,
6:19 am
drizzle but for those of you -- i know a lot of you are listening, you're busy. you're not watching. take a look real quick. there's our fog. i showed this earlier but show it again because it's pretty dramatic. the monsoon moisture made an appearance over phoenix yesterday in a big, big way. look at this. are we there yet? there we are. the microburst with rain shift over phoenix yesterday, they had 63-mile-per-hour gusts with a third of an inch of rain. there's one shot of it and then watch the second shot right there coming in. how about that? i've also posted it on my facebook page and it is getting multiple comments so thank you. if you get the chance, it's all over the place but that was yesterday, right over sky harbor airport. we have our fog back and that made for a cooler pattern yesterday and also this morning. claus is out in antioch which is one of the hot spots but it cooled off. clear sky. yesterday's high 84, that's a

6:21 am
monsoon moisture did make it to arizona yesterday but it just can't -- that southwest wind aloft is pushing that off towards the east so it doesn't make it to southern nevada or the sierra which has had a very quiet july except for the wind. it has been pretty windy up there and this system will continue to keep that breeze in place for us and for much of northern california and tahoe, truckee. low clouds, sunny, breezy, morning drizzle not as much but wisps. not much change from yesterday, maybe one or 2 degrees warmer. tomorrow looks warmer, high pressure will start to nose in a little bit. it won't be dramatic or anything but by the weekend away from the coast does look warm to hot. >> thank you. >> anytime. time is 6:21. up next, in a very unusual case of vandalism in san jose, look at this. newly planted trees chopped down. now there's a search to find out who did it.

6:25 am
may. the cost, about $100 each. city leaders plan to replace them. oakland police are searching for a group of burglars that broke into a home in the city's trestlele glen neighborhood -- trestle glen neighborhood. four men pulled up in a maserati and broke into a home on saturday. they stole an engagement ring and other jewelry. yesterday oakland police spotted a maserati and chased it to 75th and halliday in east oakland. sky fox was overhead as well as police took at least two suspects into custody. you can see there the vehicle, looks like it crashed into a fence. the car -- it looks like it could be the car from surveillance video of that burglary. the names of those arrested still have not been released. it's not clear if they are linked to that burglary that was caught on video. time is 6:25. well, today covered california is due to release its premium prices for 2017. about 1.4 million californians who don't get health insurance

from an employer, from medicare or medi-cal, they get health plans through covered california. average premiums have gone up about 4% in each of the last two years. many other states are also reporting larger increases in premiums this year. southern california's biggest water supplier now owns parts of the sacramento san joaquin delta. according to the sacramento bee, the agency bought five islands in the delta for $175 million. and the paper says the metropolitan water district bought it from a swiss insurance group which was going to build reservoirs and wildlife habitat on the islands. however, the agency says it will abandon those plans and use the islands for governor brown's proposed tunnel system that would divert water from the sacramento river down south. the as have won three of their four games since the all star break. last night at the coliseum they beat the houston astros 7-4. the as scored five runs in the

this is ktvu mornings on 2.
6:30 am
good morning. thank you for joining us on mornings on 2, tuesday, july 19th. i'm dave clark. >> good morning. i'm pam cook. thank you for joining us. we are going to check in with steve. how should everybody dress today? it sounds like layers. >> if you're by the coast, on the cool side, inland it's nice but chilly this morning for everybody. >> right. okay. >> a little cool pattern here settled in and temperatures, well, they are going to stay below average here. not as much in the way of low clouds as we had yesterday but still plenty to go around and it is a cooler pattern. when inland temps stay in the 70s and low 80s for most, unless you're really far inland but even those are running a little bit below average here. so we will see this fog retreat back to the coast, they will get sun but probably low 60s for many or down around santa cruz a little warmer than that but low clouds keep the inland temps on the cool side. there is an onshore breeze west at oakland airport, west- southwest at hayward at 8 miles per hour, 21 at travis, west- southwest at vacaville, vacaville getting a sea breeze, tells you it has made it out to the valley. 50s on the temps, low to mid to

6:32 am
jammed up like it would be on a monday -- or a tuesday, pardon me, in the middle of september or november, for that matter, but there is slow traffic. so the fall-off, as steve mentioned, hasn't been as severe. that's a 15 to 20 minute delay and right now once you get onto the bridge it looks good. no major problems on the san mateo or dunbarton bridges. some people like to use 237 to get across, especially if you're close, that way you don't have to pay a toll but there is slow traffic to deal with. this is a look at the south bay. some of those freeways you can see some red beginning to appear on 101, 85 and 280. on the peninsula traffic is moving along pretty well on 101 and 280 so far. 6:32. let's go back to the desk. new equipment that b.a.r.t. promised to have on b.a.r.t. trains won't be ready for a while. b.a.r.t. is supposed to be replacing fake cameras on its trains with real cameras that work.
6:33 am
ktvu's janine de la vega is at the fremont b.a.r.t. station. when will the cameras be ready? >> reporter: dave, b.a.r.t. officials say that all the cars should have working cameras by late 2017. right now so far just two cars have those new cameras installed on them. this comes six months after a 19-year-old man was shot and killed on a b.a.r.t. train at the west oakland b.a.r.t. station. police released a still image of the suspect but there was no video of the shooting because b.a.r.t. does not have working cameras on all its trains. b.a.r.t. revealed that the majority of its trains had decoy cameras and that upset a lot of riders. the transit agency promised to outfit all 669 of its cars with cameras that record but it's going to take time and money and that has some riders concerned. >> only gotten two in, what, six months you said? then in my opinion it seems like they are pretty much lagging on it because every day something can happen so that
6:34 am
little bit of extra added security of having a camera and hopefully catching a culprit that did something, then that opportunity gets lost if they don't do what they say and put the new cameras in. >> reporter: b.a.r.t. officials say in the past several months engineers have been testing cameras and equipment to see what works best. b.a.r.t. told east bay times it has enough equipment to replace cameras on 10 of its cars but the agency will be asking its board of directors for half a million dollars to buy the rest of the cameras by september. dave. >> janine de la vega, thank you. meantime, police at uc berkeley trying to figure out who fired a bb or pellet gun at a group of students on the uc berkeley campus and whether it's connected to a bb gun shooting just off the campus. the shootings happened just 10 minutes apart early monday morning. the first incident just outside the campus at channing and ellsworth. the second shooting happened at cal's international house on
6:35 am
piedmont avenue right next to memorial stadium. now, bb pellets shattered a large glass window at the international house. look at the pictures. students say they heard as many as seven shots. one student from belgium was hit in the face right near his left eye. students quickly ducked behind a cement wall when those shootings began. >> took me about five or 10 seconds to realize that there was someone standing with a gun, you know, who was pointing towards the i house and then he started firing. >> now, in the other bb or pellet gun shooting, two people started shooting from a white four-door car. the victim was not hurt seriously and turned down medical attention. chp says it has detained two drivers after a side show sunday afternoon briefly disrupted traffic on the bay bridge. a witness stuck in the backup took these pictures you're looking at, called the chp to give officers a description of
6:36 am
the vehicles involved. the police then waited at the end of the bridge, pulled over two cars. one driver was cited and then released. the other, though, was arrested, his vehicle was impounded. today is day 2 of the republican national convention in cleveland, ohio, but a lot of people are still talking about last night's speech, day 1 from donald trump's wife millennia trump -- melania trump. caroline shively in cleveland this morning with more on the controversy and the other speakers that delegates heard from last night. >> reporter: good morning, pam. i thought it was a great speech. i loved it. it was well delivered, well written but after the speech you thought this sounds familiar and then people started figuring outlines of it were taken directly out of michelle obama's 2008 speech at their convention, at the democrats' convention. paul manafort, campaign manager says these are common words. she would be crazy to think she would plagiarize a speech from eight years ago amid 35 million
6:37 am
people. twittersverse is on fire noting the similarities in the speeches and that was just day one of the rnc. republican presidential candidate donald trump making his grand entrance at the republican national convention. >> we are going to win so big. >> reporter: unbound delegates took the opportunity to challenge trump's nomination but failed. stealing the spotlight, potential next first lady melania trump addressed the floor. >> donald gets things done. our country is underperforming and needs new leadership. leadership is also what the world needs. >> reporter: the theme for the first day, make america safe again, comes amid terrorism abroad and protests against police. >> it's time to make america one again, one america. what happened, what happened to, what happened to there's no black america, there's no white
6:38 am
america, there is just america? >> reporter: several speakers highlighting the recent killings in dallas and baton rouge which targeted police officers. >> we simply cannot be great if we don't feel safe in our homes, on our streets and in our schools. >> reporter: last night they were focusing on safety. tonight they move onto the economy. two of the trump kids will speak as well as two former rivals of trump's, chris christie and ben carson. pam, back to you. >> going to be very interesting. we will watch it all day and into the evening. thank you, caroline. protesters are targeting the republican national convention in cleveland. >> black lives matter matter, black lives matter matter. >> cleveland police increased security for the convention. racial discrimination, money,
6:39 am
politics. hillary clinton is refusing to let republicans take over the battleground state of ohio this week. while the g.o.p. convention is being held in cleveland, she spoke yesterday at the naacp national convention in cincinnati. donald trump turned down an invitation to speak at that same event. following the police ambushes in baton rouge and dallas, clinton urged the need to improve race relations in america. she discussed criminal justice reforms but also promised to crack down on any violence against police officers. >> as president, i will bring the full weight of the law to bear and making sure those who kill police officers are brought to justice. >> clinton walked a fine line in supporting law enforcement while not alienating the black lives matter movement. next week democratic convention in philadelphia will highlight the mothers of the movement. they are women whose sons have died in police custody. the mothers will speak on the second night of the convention, the same night as former president bill clinton.
6:40 am

macarthur maze, we have very slow traffic coming around the corner to the bay bridge toll plaza. it's going to take about 27 minutes to get there from the carquinez bridge, 44 miles an hour is the average speed. when you get there, look at that slow traffic here and when you look at the bay bridge toll plaza, the same thing kind of goes. you get slow traffic. i'm looking around to make sure there's nothing reported on the actual bridge. there isn't. but this doesn't look like a very nice commute as you drive through the area. let's go to the south bay. we are also beginning to see slow traffic getting into the silicon valley, northbound 85, 280 and 85 -- 280 and 101 i should say are heavy getting over to the west valley. if you're starting in sunnyvale not that bad or mountain view for the time being but a lot of people are heading that way. at 6:48, bring steve in with today's weather. pretty much similar to yesterday is what we are looking at here. not the coverage on the fog.

back to the coast similar to yesterday. west at oakland airport at 8, west-southwest at hayward at 8 miles an hour, 21 travis, even vacaville has a west-southwest at 9. so vacaville is getting a sea breeze, that means it will make it out to the valley as well. low 50s san rafael, mid-50s for some. 58 in brentwood, 59 san jose, usually brentwood is out in front as far as the current low being the warmest but that's not the case. 56 antioch, that's cool, 53 concord, 54 lafayette and walnut creek with a little bit of a breeze and it will be very similar to yesterday, maybe one or 2 degrees warmer. 39 truckee, huge difference compared to yesterday, very strong southerly breeze and that meant temperatures in the 50s, 60s, much cooler this morning. they have lost a lot of that breeze. a lot quieter in phoenix today compared to yesterday when they had the tremendous thunderstorm roll through. the monsoon moisture continues to try, try, try but getting pushed off towards new mexico, not going to make it into southern california or up the spine of the sierra which has been very quiet this july. last july there were bloomers
