as well as patchogue village police officers moving in and getting those people out of each other's way. police did set up different pens to try to separate the protest protestors from the supporters. it's been fairly peaceful. no arrests as of now. the line to get into the emporium stretched around the block. people got here early this morning hoping to see donald trump speak. the people inside paid for tickets. around a thousand people were there to hear him speak just a little while ago. both sides are passionate about why they are here >> trump is supporting us. he's supporting us for freedom, free capitalism. he speaks the truth. he's not a racist. he uses words that people don't like, but his message is clear. it's about the law. you have to be legal. you have to come into the country legally.
build a wall. >> he's extremely far to get our message across from donald trump. i understand the suffolk police department is trying to keep us safe. we would like to be closer. our voices should be heard and our voices matter. >> reporter: law enforcement officials were ready for this. they had crews and officers lined up basically around every corner near this venue. they did a quick shutdown and did a sweep to make sure there were no explosives with the k-9 team. they had every angle covered, trying to keep the peace. police tell us they're also monitoring the situation on social media to see if any threats come through that way. donald trump wrapping up his speech at the emporium in patchogue a few minutes ago. protestors are still here. suffolk county officers and the secret service will be here
make sure the area stays safe. back over to you. alison: thank you. the new york state republican gala is taking place tonight at the grand hyatt on the east side. donald trump, ted cruz and john kasich will be there. so will hundreds of protestors event. >> this is what made america, people coming out and expressing their sentiments and how they feel and what they feel and because it's such a great moment in america. >> we are not about racism. we are not about islamaphobia or building a wall between us and mexico. justice. we're all human beings. alison: the democratic presidential hopefuls go head to head tonight days before the new york primary. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will take part in a live debate at the brooklyn navy yard. that's starting at 9:00. in other news, a crucial ruling in the manslaughter trial
he will be sentenced next week. arthur chi'en is in downtown brooklyn to explain the decision. >> reporter: the conviction stands in this case. all it centers around a question that was asked during jury deliberation, has anyone close to you been convicted of a crime? juror no. 9 answered no. but his father was serving time. with barely a pause, the judge ruled defense claims that marco vargas' -- the reaction immediate. >> it was a simple yes or no question. it wasn't really open to personal interpretation of what your family relations are. >> the omission came up after the verdict this year. defense attorneys presented antipolice posts by the 62-year-old carpenter on his facebook page to paint a picture
the judge said the defense fell short of his legal standard. the case has touched off a complicated network of police brutality nerves and racial inequality sensitivities of an often quiet minority inner city, the asians. gurley supporters were elated, no sign that the different sides are close to seeing eye to eye. >> even though some of the family members aren't speaking, there are so many who know about police brutality. >> the judge has a decision to make. the d.a. of brooklyn pursued this case very, very aggressively, going after the manslaughter charge, getting a conviction. then in the sentencing recommendation asked the judge not to give peter liang any prison time. the judge is going to make a decision on tuesday. likely nobody will be happy on either side. live in brooklyn, arthur chi'en,
alison: that's going to be a big one. thank you so much. security delays have caused long lines at newark-liberty airport and passengers can expect those times to increase. newark's lost 70 tsa workers since 2014 because of budget cuts. no need to go to the airport to get out of here for good oh -- >> everyone needs to come here. we have a nice stretch of weather. alison: i was staring and forecast. it's beautiful. >> everybody is so happy and complimentary to me. i'm glad everyone is enjoying weather. let's move on and enjoy it. things will change. the weather always does. today's high numbers were just where we should be for this time of year. we were mostly in the 50s to low 60s with a high topping out at 62 degrees in central park. we hit that number at about 3:30 earlier this afternoon.
that are still pretty much in the same range in the 50s and 60s. 60 in sussex. we've dropped to 57 in central park. it's cooler towards the east end, montauk is checking in at 48 at this hour. these numbers are a couple of degrees milder than they were yesterday. we're going to see the trend towards milder weather continue through the weekend. area-wide, it's relatively quiet at the moment. the low temperatures are going to get cold, especially northwest where we'll see them drop into the upper 20s. with cold temperatures like this, the national weather service has issued a frost advisory across interior new jersey. so we could see a little frost on the agrees -- grassy surfaces tomorrow. be aware of that. we are expecting quiet weather across the tri-state area for much of the evening. high pressure is in control. that's not only keeping us nice and dry, it's keeping much of the northeast quiet. high pressure is going to keep
williamsport to pittsburgh and down towards d.c. even towards the great lakes. there are three areas of low pressure we're keeping an eye on. one is situated towards the southeastern states. one is located across the pacific northwest, which i alluded to yesterday that's going to cause significant weather across that part of the nation. we'll be hearing that over the next couple of days. we're taking a close look at this low to the east. it's not making much movement. usually we see the movements move from west to east and then offshore. this low sits kind of -- it spins just to the east. it's blocking things from making progress from west to east. this area of high pressure is going to stay where it is, which is good news for us. we're in store for a nice stretch of weather for a couple of days which will take us through the weekend and next week. warm temperatures are sitting to the west. highs will be in the 70s in kansas city and minneapolis. we'll get readings like these into the northeast as we go into the beginning of next week. in the meantime, a chilly night tonight. we'll have the clear skies in place. we'll be nice and dry across the
that will be the case tomorrow. we'll have plenty of sunshine. temperatures a few degrees milder than they were today. and that area of low pressure sitting offshore may throw back a few clouds across the east end of long island. other than that, we'll stay nice and dry for much of friday, saturday and even into sunday. tonight, we'll have chilly temperatures north and west. that's when we'll see lows in the 20s. we'll be 40 in central park tonight. tomorrow, plenty of sunshine. nice temperatures, in the upper 50s towards the east end of long island, to the mid 60s from the city westward into new jersey. then into the weekend we go. sunshine and 65 on saturday. we'll be in the 70s on sunday and into monday. and temperatures take a little bit of a drop on tuesday, wednesday, thursday, but the big thing to note is the dry weather we're expecting for the next seven days. enjoy it while it's here. alison: that's a masterpiece, one good-looking forecast. thank you so much. >> kids are so much stronger
alison: welcome back. it is hard to imagine anything more hard breaking than a child fighting cancer. you're about to meet some kids who are using their fight to inspire others to beat this terrible disease. linda schmidt has more on these kids and the high profile help they're getting to beat pediatric cancer. >> reporter: aubrey peeples is this year's ambassador for the hope on wheels fundraiser. she performed for patients at the pediatric cancer center at new york presbyterian columbia university medical center. >> they're so happy and cute and everything. then you hear about these struggles and they're so young. it's very eye opening.
your heart and so do the children's words, written on construction paper. >> it says never look back. you can't change the past. we can change the future. cancer. i mean, you know, for a incredible. >> reporter: to think it's on construction paper. it really touches your heart. it really drives the point home. >> it really does. >> reporter: 12-year-old hannah adams from florida and ryan of maryland were diagnosed when they were five and six years old. their cancer is in remission. now they are sharing their struggles and hope with other children stricken with cancer. they are the national youth ambassadors for hope on wheels. >> i say just have hope and stay strong. >> there's a light at the end of the tunnel. once you're cured, you're cured. you're not going back there. you don't have to remember your past. you can forget it. once you're cancer-free, you're
patients rely heavily on fundraising dollars. >> a little known fact that the national budget for cancer research supplied by the national institute of health is only about 4%. >> reporter: for pediatric cancer, that's it? 4%? >> that's it. >> reporter: i'm here with hannah and ryan and aubrey. we have one thing left to say. let's end childhood cancer. back to you. alison: linda, thank you so much. i'm joined by a pediatric kettering. thank you for joining us. those kids in that piece, just inspirational to see what they have been through and how they're helping other children fight cancer. >> they work so hard. they have an uphill battle. our job is to find better cures. i want to thank you and fox 5 for raising awareness about pediatric cancer. it's critical to our success. awareness helps foundations like
funds we need to find cures. alison: you bring up signs. this was a big week. sean parker made major donations to six centers across the country. and memorial sloan kettering is one of the places that received funding. talk about the money and what you'll do with that. >> it's a revolutionary way. it's nice when we have industry, like sean parker, to have a new way to fund cancer. he's not funding one type of research. he wants to fund researchers to collaborate. we need multiple collaborations, break down the wall. if one center has a break-through, the next. the goal is immunotherapy. your immune system can recognize and get rid of cancer. it's something we've known a long time. only if the last five to 10 years have we been able to harness that and get new cures for children.
of chemo or radiation or maybe taking pills. you don't think of your immune system fighting it. >> we talk about the immune system has the ability to find cancer. in chemotherapy, surgery and radiation, with decades of research, we've improved the cure rates, but they're nonspecific. they're not just targeting the cancer. they're doing harm to the normal tissue. what we want to do is provide better cures and cures that don't have long-lasting impacts. when patients get chemotherapy, it affects their entire body. why not target the cancer and get rid of the bad cells? alison: amazing. so many people think we've come so far but will we find a cure? do you think we'll see it in our lifetimes? >> it's a big question. the thing about cancer, it's so so -- there's so many different types. i don't think there's one cure because there's over 100 types. every time we figure out how to
the next one and beat it. right now the use of p cells is getting rid of blood cancers. now we need to say we've worked in one. proof of principle. how do we translate it to the solid tumors? alison: thank you so much for coming in and congratulations on the funding. thanks so much. nba fans are treated to one of the greatest regular season finales ever last night. kobe being kobe stole the spotlight. russ is going to talk about his farewell coming up next. >> and ever walk down the street and wonder why people are swearing so much? a look at where language has gone and why letting out a good curse word feels so good sometimes. that's monday at 6:00.
he say's we should punish women who have abortions. there has to be some form of punishment. that mexicans who come to america are rapists. they're rapists. and that we should ban muslims from coming here at all. total and complete shut down. donald trump say's we can solve americas problems by turning against
each other. it's wrong and it goes against everything new york and america stand for. with so much at stake, she's the one tough enough to stop trump. hillary clinton.
if your family outing is magical for all the wrong reasons. you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec is different than claritin . because it starts working faster on the first day you take it. try zyrtec . muddle no more . alison: welcome back. we're going to go back out to midtown outside the grand hyatt hotel where the gop gala is happening. a lot more protestors have shown up, shutting down streets. lexington avenue is being affected. we'll have a lot more for you tonight at 10:00. all right. time for sports with russ. oh, my goodness, last night i think the only thing to say is that was kobe being kobe on his way out. russ: wow and wow and wow big time. i get home last night, i flip it on for a bit. i'm not going to stay up to watch this.
i wake up and before i turn on the tv, i grabbed my phone to see what the score was. they won. then i take a look. 60 points. i said you've got to be kidding me. 60 points. listen, i don't care if he took 50 shots and how much the guys were feeding him, his teammates. to score 60 points in your finale finale, you're talking about an absolute -- it was a storybook ending, beyond a hollywood script and it's happening in hollywood where he's been a star for 20 seasons. it was incredible. it was befitting him. you know why? because for the last three seasons, when you get older, your injuries and stuff bogs you down. we were robbed of him for three years. all of a sudden he was killed by injuries.
played 42 minutes, to come up with that kind of performance, it was just really remarkable. really remarkable. alison: people were paying all that money to see kobe certainly got a show and got to see plenty of kobe. there was a big name in the crowd. russ: shaquille o'neal. there were a lot of big names in the crowd. shaquille o'neal was there. alison: you didn't see -- russ: you know, it's no secret that they weren't the best of buddies. listen, they won the championships together. but, you know, shaq showed up when it counted. i thought that was very important. alison: a class move. another small game went on, another little game. russ: hard to believe that the golden state warriors just broke
bulls with their 73rd victory this season, a new record. it's stephen curry, 10 more 3's -- he was the first guy to get 300 3's in a season and now the first to get 400. they were at home. they were going to close it out in a big way. we didn't know what was going to happen. nobody expected 60 points from kobe bryant. again, that was a big deal. alison: it was a basketball fans' paradise. russ: as far as selling merchandise goes, kobe bryant merchandise sold in the arena for $1.2 million setting a new record which broke the old record in london in 2007 by led zeppelin. alison: that doesn't include the
>> there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen.
but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time
for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
alison: if you ever find yourself hungry in seattle, check the menu closely before you order from this food truck. that's because the seattle barkery caters
to dogs with bacon cupcakes, and chicken feet. the owners are professional dog walkers who run the truck full-time because it's such a big hit. that's it for us. thanks so much for joining us. for everyone in studio 5 and the control room, have a terrific night. we will see you tomorrow.
in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state, the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, the lowest taxes in decades, and new infrastructure for a new generation attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in rochester, with world-class botox. and in buffalo, where medicine meets the future.
tomorrow - today - at business.ny.gov american workers know how to fight back and rebuild an economy. so does she. we need jobs that provide dignity and a bright future. new penalties to stop companies from moving profits and jobs overseas. for businesses that create manufacturing jobs, a new tax credit. and let's invest in clean energy with 500 million solar panels installed by the end of her first term.

[laughter] >> gwen stefani just caught a huge break in her divorce with gavin rossdale. he's walking away from a chunk he could have taken from her money. >> he can't do what he did and then take all of her money too. >> the rest of your lives you're going to have to deal with each other. so maybe if you bone the nanny, maybe you take the high road. when it comes to the money. >> good for you, gavin rossdale.
