6:04 pm
office. they've been calling for jasonan boudin's recall too announce felony charges against people arrested in connection with burglaries in san francisco. one of those at the louis vuitton in union square. four individuals charged in connection with the louis vuitton incident. charges include looting, grand theft. also charged in connection with the incidents, an individual who was a passenger in a car from union square. that individual charged with possessing a firearm with a prior felony. in addition to the union square incident, there were also additional burglaries in the city this weekend. one of those at a cannabis dispensary. three individuals charged in connection with that one. and another burglary at a walgreen's, one individual charged in connection with that
6:05 pm
burglary. reporters asked the district attorney whether or not these nine individuals will stay in custody and whether or not these charges could be reduced or dropped entirely, this was his answer. >> ultimately, in every single case, including these, it is up to the judges and superior court of san francisco whether somebody stays in custody pending trial or whether they're released. similarly it's the decision of the judges of the superior court of san francisco to decide what sentence should be imposed including whether charges filed as felonies are subsequently reduced. my office has some discretion in that matter and judge have discretion as well. >> right now you're looking at video of reporters and photographers having to quickly move inside for this press conference which initially had been scheduled to take place outside but again those protesters showed up and we were quickly moved inside.

6:07 pm
throughout northern california as far as san joaquin county and up here where they decided to say we need to speak in a unified voice and unified charging, that this has to stop. another thing that happened yesterday was a conference call between 150 law ep forcement, f.b.i., sheriffs, police chiefs, from san francisco down to monterrey, where they're having these types of swarm robberies. it's not just san francisco. this is happening around. >> which is why that regional approach is probably very smart. >> it's smart on a couple of things. one you want to send a unify message. but also these bands are moving from counti to county. the c.h.p. when they're patrolling shopping malls, that is not just to patrol shopping malls, but to get more people on freeway, you get word that this is happening, try to prevent it. block an exit. swarm the area yourself. one of the key steps is if you're trying to build a better bay area is to stop these things before they get started to. get the intelligence that it's
6:08 pm
happening and to react quickly. >> on that subject of c.h.p., paying more attention to exits, freeway exits close to some of these shopping areas because one of the things that make it so attractive for thieves is they can get on the highway and out of there fast. >> that's part of the attraction of it. we have box scores close to the freeways and they get hit. it's a combination of this things. one is prevention. in walnut springs they're upping police presence, possibly put in traffic barriers, working in concert with other cities around there for a unified front as well to stay on top of this. to be aware of it. it's the shopping season. black friday. is that going to replicate? first thing is try to prevent it. second, send a message that if you're caught you'll be charged. >> one of the things i know they want to do, phil is to understand how these criminals organize and communicate. i know -- >> it's right there. it's right there on your cell phone.
6:09 pm
>> is it social media? >> yes. that's what happens. same thing, you can get on a cell phone, and you can -- it's saturday night, you can start sending out messages and you can get into a network where the same ones that let's say put 500 cars together far sideshow and spin the tires and shoot off the guns. >> meet at union square. >> let's hit union square. it's the same thing like that. it happens so quickly. it can happen within an hour or two. as a matter of fact, one of the reasons why there were arrests made is because the cops were on alert for possible social networking saying that there might be rae action to the kenosha verdict, let's have a police presence out there. >> interesting. because it could be expanding far beyond the initial plan just by social media, more people show up at the last minute. >> exactly. >> almost like a house party or something. >> you've got to try to keep it from happening. >> phil, always great. remember, if you want to help build a better bay area go to
6:10 pm to find your ally. >> heavy hitters from congress and speaker pelosi here in san francisco today celebrating the passage of the infrastructure act how much that money will be doled out in the bay area. >> and get ready for one of the coldest nights so far this season. we'll have the numbers and your travel forecast if you're staying near or traveling for a coming up next. disbliem at peer 39 where we're going to light the night with the
