6:00 pm
who voted, with one abstention, jed york, the 49ers owner. york didn't vote due to a lack of player involvement in the decision, he said. and he added the team plans to stop selling concessions during the national anthem, as well. joining us now is joe fonzi. this is afternoon a year of emotional debate. >> it's hard to imagine anything more divisive. it's still the most watched sport across the country. and the protest last season, opinions on how appropriate the protests were ran the gamut. the league tried to come up with a solution that would apiece both sides. it started as a relatively unnoticed one-man protest two seasons ago. colin kaepernick's decision to "take a knee" during the national anthem sparked emotion on both sides of the flag versus patriotism issue. the movement grew. the weekend after the president made comments in alabama referring to nfl players as sobs. >> he's fired. >> reporter: --owners and players alike thought they had
6:01 pm
to express different forms of team unity during the anthem. today, commissioner roger goodell announced the decision by the owners designed to apiece both sides. -- designed to appease both sides. >> we want people to be respectful of the national anthem. we want people to stand. that's all personnel. and make sure that they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. that's something that we think we owe. we have been very sensitive in making sure that we give players choices but we do believe that that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on. it was unanimously adopted by the clubs. >> reporter: not quite. the vote wasn't 32-0. 49ers ceo jed york abstained from the vote. in interviews today york said,
6:02 pm
>> reporter: a further clarification of the new policy. teams will not be required to be on the field for the anthem, but protests will be punished. based on the discretion of individual teams. new york jets chairman and ceo christopher johnson is already on record saying, his team will not impose any new club rules, fines or restrictions. and the players union obviously has a stake in today's decision. that body was not consulted by the owners and issued this statement: >> the owners objective today was to obviously bring clarity to a divisive issue last season. it remains unclear if they have accomplished that. the 49ers have said they will close the concession stands during the anthem.
6:03 pm
today's announcement seems to be putting most of the emphasis on the individual teams. the original objective was to bring some clarity to a divisive issue. it's unclear to me if they have now accomplished that. >> the nfl still has ratings but there's no questions that the ratings have tanked in part because of the protest. how do you think fans will react to this decision here by the owners? >> i'll start with the first premise. that's speculative. the year before that happened, the ratings were already down. thigh thing that spurred the big reaction is the things that the president said in alabama when he called them sobs. hubs protested after that. it was a situation where the team concept if you have ever been in a locker room or on a team you may be the person next to me, i may have absolutely nothing in common with you, but as a teammate, we put all that aside and go
6:04 pm
out on the field and play together. when somebody called you a name, you just called me a name, as well. that's what happened after everything happened in. completely separate from how this all started as individual sides take what was originally intended to be take it politically hostage. i don't know they have solved it. >> thank you. fans we spoke with had mixed reaction with people taking both sides of the issue. >> seems a reasonable way of solving it. they have -- they can still protest but not in front of everybody else during the national anthem. they are saying the players should stay at the locker room. if they want to kneel down they should stay in the locker room? that's ridiculous. they have freedom of speech and the freedom to do what they want to do. if they want to kneel during the national anthem, has nothing to do with disrespecting the flag. it has something to do with what they are standing for.
6:05 pm
>> truthful opinion i think they should have all kept it -- they should have kept it separate from the nfl. let the guys play. i understand why talking about when kaepernick started all this i understand his point. i understand his point. i just felt that, um, they should have kept it out of the nfl. >> reporter: reaction is pouring in online. from vice president mike pence to the aclu, people and groups on both sides of the debate are weighing in. you can share your thoughts with us on twitter or facebook. more news now with the 49ers. reuben foster can now rejoin the team after domestic violence charges against him were dropped today. when asked if he was relieved by the judge's decision, foster gave us thumbs up as he left the courtroom. last week his ex-girlfriend took back her allegations of abuse. she told the court that she lied after he dumped her.
6:06 pm
the judge says she reviewed 911 calls, witness statements and injury photographs and said she believed ennis lied. >> today reuben foster's defense team scored a touchdown. this could not have gone better for the reuben foster team. and what the judge said is that it's not just the recantation by miss ennis that led to the decision, but it was the entirety of the evidence that was put on at the preliminary hearing. >> the 49ers released a statement saying: the santa clara county district attorney's office meantime says it is disappointed in the decision. it went on to say, recantation is common among domestic violence victims. some are scared, some feel guilty, some are coerced, some need money.
6:07 pm
whatever the cause, we move forward on cases when victims falsely recant because we know that if we don't, more victims will be hurt. some developing news from san francisco where firefighters are reporting one minor injury after a tour bus caught fire. it happened about 4:30 in the 300 block of columbus avenue in north beach. crews took 30 minutes to extinguish it. one person was treated for smoke inhalation. the flames caused significant damage to the front of the bus. no word on the cause. at sfo, the wing of an airline link gust passenger jet hit a concrete support -- aer lingus passenger jet hit a concrete support. it landed at 3:15. no injuries. we don't know yet how much damage there was to the plane. but we are told that no other flights were affected. a federal judge in new york city has ruled that
6:08 pm
president trump cannot block twitter followers for their political views. the judge says it's a violation of the first amendment. the president's effort to silence his critics is not permissible because the digital space you uses to connect with the people is a public forum. the ruling rejects administration arguments that the first amendment doesn't apply in this case because the president is acting as a private individual. secretary of state mike pompeo said today plans for next month's scheduled summit between president trump and north korean leader kim jong- un are still moving forward. that's despite growing concerns the history making face-to-face meeting may not happen on the scheduled june 12th date. reporter ellison barber joins you live from washington, d.c. with the story. >> reporter: hi, heather. there are more reports coming out tonight that perhaps put this meeting in even bigger question mark territory. the reports coming from north korean state media that a foreign ministry official in north korea will suggest to
6:09 pm
the north korean leadership that they reconsider the summit. that foreign official is also saying that whether or not this meeting, this summit, happens depends entirely on the u.s. earlier today, as you mentioned, the u.s. secretary of state went before congress and told congress that they were ready, the u.s. is ready to meet with north korea but he said they are also ready to walk away if the right deal is not on the table. >> our eyes are open to the lessons of history but we are optimistic that we can achieve an outcome that would be great for the world. secretary of state mike pompeo laying out u.s. goals for a scheduled meeting with north korean leader kim jong- un. >> our posture won't change until we see credible steps taken towards the complete verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> reporter: president trump is questioning whether it will happen on june 12th. north korea already threatened to cancel it after the u.s. held joint military exercises with south korea.
6:10 pm
>> we will know next week about singapore. and if we go, i think it will be great for north korea. >> reporter: journalists from around the world have been brought in to witness the closing of a north korean nuclear test site a sign of goodwill coming from the north. but some members of coming say a deal will -- some members of congress say a deal will take more than goodwill. >> kim jong-un wants to decide if he wants to continue the sanctions or get on with a serious negotiation here so that we can start de- escalating all this tension. >> reporter: white house officials tell fox news that some top administration aides are heading to singapore this weekend. they will start setting up the logistics and planning for the summit. >> thank you. president trump's son-in- law had his security clearance restored today after almost three months in limbo. jared kushner's lawyer says his client has now completed a security background check that began last year. it was held up in part because
6:11 pm
kushner's neglected to fully account for his contacts with foreign nationals. what's in a comic book? everything if it involves black panther and also has an oakland themed cover. just ahead i'll tell you about the crowds here all day. >> yeah. it's cool out there. it's warmer in some places. a lot of cloud cover, drizzle last night. is it going to keep going like this? i'll let you know. >> one month after the launch of oakland 311, we are learning more about residents' biggest nonemergency complaints. we'll tell you how it's working and what's being reported the most. >> it's easier than trying to call 911. >> a live look now at the evening commute. this is hospital curve there in san francisco. san francisco. >> let's see if it's any better in emeryville. >> nope. i don't think so. >> nope. it is slow going there. is slow going there.

6:16 pm
everything. >> reporter: we told her about a new app launched by oakland called oak 311. she says she will use it. >> because it's easier than trying to call 911. >> reporter: that's what mayor schaaf wants to hear. last month, the mayor introduced oak 311 to report things like potholes, graffiti and illegal dumping. ever since it went online, complaints have gone up 12% from 5,291 requests last year to 5,916 during the same time frame last year. >> we need all hands on deck to address the quality of life issues in oakland and 311 gives everybody the tool to be part of the solution, to be the eyes and ears for the city so we know where to go and what to do, what you need fixed. >> reporter: when it comes to illegal dumping, the mayor says the city has a goal. >> we want to see at least 90% of those complaints picked up within three business days. frankly, i'd like it to be one business day. >> reporter: chang hopes the city will respond quickly after she reports problems so

"2 investigates" tonight human waste being dumped day after day in a residential area. neighbors are upset over septic tank trucks unloading cargo down a manhole on their sidewalk. but we have learned that these companies actually aren't breaking the law. in fact, they have been told that this is their assigned dumping spot.

6:34 pm
>> reporter: those using the park today say after learning julian khan's back story agreed that it's time to change the park's name. >> now that i know, you know, his name and what he did, i would say that's a good idea to get rid of the name of the park. >> reporter: the committee is going to recommend to the board of supervisors to change the name of the park. the board of supervisors is likely to go with that recommendation and instruct the city's recreation and parks department to seek public input on a new name for that park. there could be a new name in october or november of this year. in san francisco, christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news. new at 6:30, facebook's ceo mark zuckerberg is in france for important tech talks. french president emmanuel macron hosted a meeting to discuss tax and data protection. zuckerberg joined other tech leaders from microsoft uber

6:36 pm
>> $100 for sole proprietor, a little more as you go up. as you get to larger employers over 500, we would have a sliding scale which would bring you up to what could be $250. >> reporter: google, mountain view's largest employer, is looking at millions a year from this but has yet to speak out on the head tax. apple, cupertino's biggest employer, is also looking at millions in head count taxes. >> everybody recognizes that we have a housing crisis and also a transportation crisis. these two are joined at the hip. so i think even major employers are now having a hard time attracting and retaining talent. >> reporter: even mountain view's business-supported chamber of commerce has yet to decide. >> we're reserving our official position until we really truly understand what this revenue measure is going to entail. >> reporter: stanford law professor and urban planning expert michele wild anderson says it's best to let the voters decide but sees the danger that a head count tax to fix current problems, cities just might be tempted
6:37 pm
to keep following the money. >> it gives the government an incentive to --one more incentive, really, to permit new square footage on commercial property because each time they do that you'll bring in one more employee here, one more employee --a dozen there. and that's the basis of the revenue, a head count. >> reporter: so for mountain view, cupertino and east palo alto, gridlock and excruciating housing costs are becoming unstainable even for those making the super high high-tech salaries, a real problem and we have probably reached the tipping point. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. coming up here, live pictures from the big island of hawaii as more lava spews out of the kilauea volcano. the latest on the volcanic eruption as more homes are

degrees. so temperatures well below average. san francisco 59. that's not that far off because the city and the out at "the avenues" you expect fog this time of the year. not santa rosa at 61 or napa at 63. we're warming up slowly. the story is this big extended marine layer that's going to slowly pinch back down after friday, though. so between now and friday, we have this type of weather to contend with. friday there's even a chance one of the models suggesting for a sprinkle in the forecast or heavy drizzle. you have the sea breeze plus there, and the wind blowing it in there. last night winds at 40 miles an hour. it's still howling. our marine air making it to roseville and grass valley.
6:50 pm
the beach in the park is beautiful. the hills not blocking out the deep marine layer. but the farther back teams feels like mount vaca taller so they can dam it up like a levee. temperatures tomorrow like today 60s and low 70s at best. but then it warms up nicely. friday the coolest day of the week but then you see what happens on saturday. saturday, sunday and monday back to perhaps the 90s.
6:51 pm
by monday anyway. just in time for memorial day. >> you asked me about saturday or sunday? >> asking about saturday. >> saturday -- the weekend looks pretty. bottlerock, i was talking to mark ibanez, it's big up there in napa and a lot of people go and they expect it to be 85 degrees. it's not going to be that on friday. but saturday and sunday will be in the low 80s up there so it will be nice. >> thank you. sports is coming up next. mark is here in just a moment. so stay with us. only marshall tuck will change that. year after year, policians fail to improve public schools. tuck turned around failing schools, raising graduation rates 60%. marshall tuck for state superintendent. marshall tuck.

when does the series with the astros wrap up? > fortunately for the giants, it was a brief two-game series. yeah. several days ago when i saw that they were not only going to be facing the world champs, the astros, but they were going to throw at them cole and verlander, two of the best pitchers in baseball, i thought, it might be a lousy couple of days down in houston for the giants. and sure enough, it is i garrett cole got them last night. today verlander and the fans down there are feeling their oats these days and why not, they won the worlds in the 4th inning our only giants highlight. hernandez into the wide open spaces. he will high tail it around. wind up with a triple and
6:55 pm
score shortly thereafter on a buster posey sacrifice fly. 1-0. here's a routine fly to right. it's andrew mccutcheon coming over and you don't see that very often. a big leaguer misjudged it and that winds up as you see it again on the replay completely missing his glove. that turns into a run. bruce bochy can't be happy about that verlander by the way went six innings and gave up three hits, one run, struck out nine. wasn't a good day at the plate for andrew mccutcheon. he went down 3 times against them. he is hitting well under .200 against them. and here's george springer, one of the world series here ris, long and gone his tenth of the year a two-run shot. the giants lose both games in houston. >> they are going to wrigley field. the final today 4-1. this was a perfect fit for the first moment he landed in san jose. and the sharks want to make sure it remains in place. that would be evander kane staying with san jose. came over in a trade right at
6:56 pm
the deadline and they are now reportedly close to a deal. 7-year extension with kane worth $49 million. he is 26, going to be 27 very soon. he was out on a free agent mark. he brings speed and attitude. he had nine goals and five assists in 17 games as the sharks went pretty deep into the play-offs and came with a big reason for that. -- and kane was a big reason for that. the warriors and the rockets heading for houston for game 5. all tied 2-2. this was noon- ish today at the oakland airport when the warriors boarded the plane and headed down to houston for the all important game. and i'll tell you what, last night one of the toughest defeats they had endured in a long time and draymond feeling the sting. >> kind of off. you know, we know we let one slip away. so definitely guyed are off but encouraged as well, you know, like, you know, i love
6:57 pm
the way this team respond when our back is against the wall. i know the level of focus and intensity level that this team brings on that is the case. so i think we can get back. >> we'll see about that. meantime, it is time to "check this out." some of the best defense today did occur in the giants-astros game. belt along the left field line, gonzalez with a beautiful catch up against the stands there. appreciated by verlander. that's a tough play battling the fans and his own teammate. but you tell me. better play here? that's a beautiful play by the pitcher right there. better appreciated on the replay. very athletic and all worth checking out at this early hour. >> good night.

you feel like trying something new for dinner? maybe indian, tex-mex? you ever wonder how humans would be different if they evolved from lizards instead of mammals? okay, let's talk about that. as you know, lizards-- cold-blooded animals-- lack the ability to sense temperature. but they do move more sluggishly when it's cold. so, lizard weathermen would say things like, "bring a sweater. it's slow outside." i love my mind. we all do. now, how about dinner? oh, i would assume we'd enjoy insects or smaller lizards. we could also pull each other's tails off and grill them; they'll just grow back. oh! my life-size cardboard mr. spock is here!
