9:03 am
disappeared five years ago on her way to school. sierra's body was never found. still the jury convicted garcia- torres of her murder. now the same jurors will decide whether he lives or dies. >> garcia-torres created a lot of victims here. not just sierra and her family. the other women that he attempted to kidnap. but his own family and children. the responsibility falls directly on him. he shouldn't be seen as someone enjoying sympathy when he created the carnage. >> reporter: for their part, defense attorneys are arguing that the jury should spare garcia-torres' life considering the fact that he grew up surrounding by poverty, abuse and neglect. they also have been reminding this jury that garcia-torres has a child of his own. again, garcia-torres' attorneys are hoping this jury may have a
9:04 am
shadow of a doubt and potentially will spare his life. we will have to see as the penalty phase of the trial winds down here. either a life sentence or a death sentence. >> thank you, alex. there are two other verdicts we're waiting for. a jury deliberate rating murder charges against three sheriff's deputies accused of beating a jail inmate to death. if convicted they face the possibility of life in prison. in the east bay a jury in oakland is continuing deliberations in the trial of four men accused in the shooting death of pierce. she was killed while trying to protect her children from a shootout in front of the oakland home. prosecutors say it was in self defense following a fight between two groups of people. the sheriff is confirming that she is declaring a staffing emergency. she is ordering overtime for all of the deputies. there are not enough deputies to staff the county jails

without the ot. there are are currently 840 deputies in the sheriff's department. hen see says a full staff would have 915 deputies. she requiring each deputy to work at least 12 hours of overtime per papered until more deputies can be hired. >> that means spreading the pain across the board basically. and getting people to work at least one eight hour shift on one of their regular days off. >> the deputies union does not like this overtime order. it creates a deputy safety issue. the sheriff says the new class of deputies is graduating soon and will fill half of the needed vacancies. it took three and a half hours longer but a jetblue flight from new york to san francisco finally arrived at sfo around midnight. the plane was force today land in grand rapids, michigan after a passenger's laptop caught fire. the computer was inside of a carry-on bag that led to smoke.

9:07 am
conversations. calls between word leaders are usually highly orchestrated and done on secure lines. the leaders of mexico and canada have his cell phone. he apparently gave his number to france's newly elected president. a president trump tweet is trending this morning. the president posted this tweet at midnight eastern side. despite the constant negative press, covfefe which is most likely a typo for the word coverage. he has deleted this and replaced it with this one. >> talk about this and more with our ktvu political analyst joining us on the phone. are you with us, brian. >> i am indeed, gasia. >> we will talk about covfefe in a moment. we will start with the paris climb alternate agreement. the president is meeting with rex tillerson who wants to stay in the deal. do you think that secretary tillerson can persuade president trump to stay or is
9:08 am
his mind made up. >> i don't think his mind is made up. i think he is getting tremendous push back not only by the secretary of state but apparently by his -- by his daughter. and his advisers. there is quite a debate within the white house and of course people from around the country. not heads of industry and other people are checking in. i'm guessing that where he thought he was going originally by pulling out is now tempered by the amount of pushback that he is getting. >> is this just a political decision? is it something that he was saying that this will be -- this will make me look good in front of my base jobs, jobs, jobs. but is a decision to get out going to cause more damage to him and his stature. >> well, i think, sal, the answer is that he is being advised by those who wish to stay in the accord that this will take america out of a leadership role on climate
9:09 am
protection. and that may not be a good thing for other things president trump wants to accomplish around the world. and that is the key. if he's only appealing to his base, well, he made it clear during the campaign that he wanted to pull out of that agreement. you get into office and you have competing interests. and we will see if those can pull him away from a decision to pull out. >> you mentioned his daughter, brian. do you think he listens to his daughter more than he does his secretary of state? >> well, i think his daughter is very important. he trusts family. we have seen that clearly early on. and i think the -- his daughter and other people in the white house are saying, hey, be careful about this decision because it has worldwide ramifications. >> right. >> and finally, brian, before we have to let you go. it looks like president is having as much fun with covfefe as the american public is. >> this is the manifestation of
9:10 am
the new social media and what we all experience in our own lives. which is sometimes if we're rushing, we tweet something incorrect or texts are mangled. the difference here is he is the president of the united states. and that causes some concern along the way. >> political analyst brian sobel. thank you for joining us. >> absolutely. >> kathy griffin is admitting she went too far after posting a photo with a fake severed head that looked like president trump. >> she is asking the photographer that she worked with to take down the images and the secret service is now investigating. >> jackie ibanez has more from griffin. >> the image is too disturbing. i understand how it offends people. it wasn't fun i i get it. >> comic kathy griffin under fire after a picture of what is supposed to look like a severed head belonging to president donald trump.
9:11 am
criticism quickly followed. including from former first daughter chelsea clinton calling it vile and wrong and saying, quote, it is never funny to joke about killing a president. >> i find this photograph deplorable and don't condone it at all. if we're talking about free speech, she has as much right to pose with that shot as ted nugent has to say about things about hillary clinton. >> kathy griffin posted this apology. >> i apologize. i'm a comic. i crossed the line. >> she originally called the imagery an artsy statement mocking president trump and says she does not condone violence. >> there should be consequences for this violent imagery. people who employ kathy griffin should ask if they should continue. >> i made a mistake and i am wrong. >> donald junior called it disturbing but not surprising.
9:12 am
what if a conservative would have done this when president obama was in office. >> president trump also tweeted that his young son bareon is having a hard time seeing that image. >> yeah. i know she is apologizing. but is she apologizing for the incident or trying to save her career. >> chelsea clinton mentioned something. she said it was vile and wrong. >> she already had one sponsorship -- she lost one. there will be fallout from it. >> coming up on mornings on 2, we will circle back to a story we reported a few weeks ago. hackers holding the pirates of caribbean for ransom. why two south bay schools have no choice to give up air conditioning and heating for the time being. rich, radiant color and it cares for my hair. no color protects better. or covers gray better. so much care in one little box. excellence crème from l'oréal paris.

9:23 am
vacation days this summer. all of this pushes to our question of the day which is this: do you unplug from the office when you leave for vacation? 32% say yep, i'm completely out of reach. almost half though, 49% say i check in occasionally. 19% say no, i am always available. on twitter david said most of the time but i tend to check work e-mails when i have downtime. >> jan says nope too much relies on me if i'm needed. >> retired to you but in the past it depended on the job. it is one of the things that i unplugged. >> for more on this we are joined by senior district president cindy. thank you for coming in. 54% is higher than i thought. the jump from 41%. the question is why. if i were to guess, it would be i'm afraid of getting fired. i need to be tapped into work. >> i see. >> if you think about it, for
9:24 am
me when i wake up this morning, what is the first thing that i see? my cell phone. the first thing that i see when i go to bed at night. that's what most employees do. they take their cell phone with them and their laptop with them and feel compelled to be engaged in work. >> so it is habit. >> it is habit. >> a lot is habit. >> part of the culture. >> a bit of it is culture. >> maybe everybody else checks out. but if i'm in an environment where mike and gasia are always plugged in, then i'm going to take my cues from my peers. i should be plugged in too. >> peers and subordinates and their superiors. if the boss doesn't unplug from work, the employees will not either. >> i see a total disconnect from the numbers. 37% say we're not getting enough vacation. but half of us are checking our phones and checking in with work while on vacation. why the disconnect? >> it is so true. there are things that we can do as both employees and employers.
9:25 am
employees, if you put together what i would call a vacation action plan, so before you go on vacation, let your peers know what you will be doing, when you will be engaged, when you won't be engaged. >> that's like the last thing that i want to do. i'm going to be here and there. >> put boundaries around it. >> true. >> on when you might be able to be engaged. and let them know what they can -- what they can expect. you know, another thing that happens quite a bit with employees is they forget to put their vacation on the calendar. so sometimes the employer forgets they are on vacation. they ping them, they are on e- mails and feel compelled to respond. >> on my phone, it has the iphones a lot of phones have i check all of my inboxes with one thick. if i'm looking for a personal e- mail, my work e-mail is there. it is tempting these days to stay checked in.
9:26 am
does that pose a problem? >> it is very true. it is easy to stay checked in. there are also many tools that you can use. have a personal e-mail address and a work e-mail address and keep them separated. >> my yahoo is this line and my work is this line. i mentioned earlier that we went to kings canyon for the long memorial day weekend. there was not a cell signal to be had. at first i freaked. but after a couple hours, i got into it. i had no idea what was going on in the world until we made it back to fresno, which was nice. it was forced though. >> what i don't like is when i come back to work after a week off, an extended period and i go into the meeting and people say you must be so fresh. i'm not fresh. i need to work on that. do you have advice for reentering after being unplugged. >> absolutely. i would set a meeting with your boss as soon as you get back to debrief on what happened. it will get you up to speed much quicker. and it will make you feel like
9:27 am
you haven't missed a beat while were you gone. it is important that you unplug while you're on vacation because it helps your productivity go up. you know, i was just recently at the san francisco business times. best places to work event. >> yeah. >> and one of the -- some of the best places to work, what they're offering now is unlimited cpo or unlimited vacation. not everybody is going to take that time. but having the ability to do it and the flexibility to do it frankly as an employer is something that we need to do to attract the best talent in the market. >> i like that idea. our boss' office is on the second floor. northwest corner. go and pitch that. thank you for joining us, cindy. >> thank you. >> tell her that we sent you. >> thank you. coming up on the 9, bay area coach preparing for retirement. the team hopes to send him off with one more championship.
