4:02 pm

4:03 pm
the bay area would be a workplace hazard, and it's just sad to me. now this afternoon, president biden released a statement sending his condolences to officer evans family. he's also ordered the flags at the white house to be lowered to half staff reporting live. greg lee ktvu, fox two news. joining us now to talk more about the security issues at the capitol tonight. is he spake congressman mark to sonya. congressman thanks for joining us tonight. i'm just curious for stuff. what kind of communication is coming out of washington? d. c. i know you're not there on site this this evening, but what kind of communication are you hearing from your colleagues and capitol police, i haven't talked to the capitol police, but i'll talk to my staff who are back there. and i just overcome with disbelief and sadness us much like my colleague, and it's for officer evans and his family and. family that is a capitol police. many of these opposition become
4:04 pm
friends with that they were struggling before this, and it's just awful. just awful. yeah, this attack coming less than three months since the january riot, and we know that security measures were beefed up at the time, i believe national guard was called in. there was fencing put up. i believe the fence and came down on the outer perimeter, at least around the capital, gino found is the case and what other kind of security measures are currently in place there right now. okay so they have brought the permanent area back, and that may be something that will have to look at in regards to it. this happened here you can see in your video right now. there's still a fence. but it has been the perimeter's been reduced, so there's gonna be an ongoing discussion. but. no, i hope americans can take a deep breath on. you realize that this is not normal, but we've got to hold things together. and i think for those of us in elected office, we have to be very. mindful of our responsibility and our tone.
4:05 pm
it's his period time. well i'm just curious because congress wasn't in session today, eh? there's questions over the motive of what was behind this attack here on day. i'm just curious. you know when you do go to washington, following what happened in january, now you see this happen? are you concerned about your safety when you go to washington? yes i've been concerned about my safety and my colleagues for some time. well particularly towards the end of the last administration. and then after being there in january, 6th and having having been escorted out of the capitol building, you have to be concerned. he had beware all the time, but your presence. so it's this is not the way america's supposed to work. we're supposed take a deep breath. we work nonviolently through the system, no matter how frustrated we get, or our differences of opinion, it's just so sad. i didn't think, officer evans, it's just this is unthinkable. it's gotta stop. yeah, you mentioned
4:06 pm
officer evan sernoffsky in what capitol police department's going through having to bury one of their own in january. now they have lost another. hello, officer at they have another officer in the hospital following today's incident, and i'm just curious. it just seems like something needs to change or changes need to be made for capitol police and i'm not sure what the answer is. i'm not either, but i'm it's discouraging. i'm old enough to remember when the capital had very little security that you could walk in. two members office and course now you can't do that, and that's out of necessity than i think we have to be careful, but i hope the whole country you know it's easter weekend and no matter what your belief system is. i think this is a time for us to all take a deep breath and out of respect to the people who lost their lives. really change the tone, and i'm just so distraught that this happened again and you can't help. it's a small community. you become friends with these officers. i asked officer evans, that

4:12 pm
4:13 pm
resume in california on april 15th. that is the same day they coronavirus vaccine eligibilityh officials said this afternoon that the number of attendees had indoor events will be limited by which tear the county is in venues will also be allowed to offer fully vaccinated sections where
4:14 pm
people can sit close together without social distancing, but still wearing masks. fully vaccinated sections that are separated off can sit shoulder to shoulder. this is really critical because this is going to really be a pathway to allowing, then used to really fulfill to meet. the capacity limits are currently in the blueprints. indoor private events like conferences or receptions of up to 50 people are allowed in the red tear. that number goes up to 200. if all attendees are either tested or fully vaccinated. well, the cdc is relaxing travel guidelines across the board as more and more people get vaccinated. ktvu tom vacar joins us live with more on what the cdc is advising. uh well, if you've got the trouble, but things are definitely looking up land sea. and they're so cdc issued new guidelines saying that fully vaccinated people
4:15 pm
may not travel at very low risk to themselves so long as they traveled two weeks after their last dose. if coronavirus precautions such as masking followed, you're free to travel within the u. s without covid-19 tests prior to traveling or self quarantine afterwards. for international travel fully vaccinated. people do not need to get a covid-19 tests before they leave the united states unless it is required by their international destination. however the cdc says you should have a negative covid test before flying back to the u. s as well as another test 3 to 5 days after returning people not fully vaccinated should get a test 123 days before leaving, and another test again. 3 to 5 days after returning at. well, a self quarantine at home for seven days. i know there's a lot of people that really follow that cdc guidance very closely, and this is essentially enabling that air travel to open up a little bit
4:16 pm
more. the cdc also announced it'll soon issue new guidelines for the cruise industry, a critical step in restarting cruising and god said into san francisco's beleaguered cruise terminal. back east the triple a says they're online car rentals air up 200, the highest level. since the auto club began tracking rules 11 years ago. there are 100% in the west. many folks feel a sanitized, reliable car is the safest way for family travel. for now, you know, the road trip we have seen is the most popular form of travel during this time and be that because maybe people feel more comfortable like you said nationally, rail travel is rebuilding in late may, the california zephyr and the coast starlight resume their daily operations. our guns reiterates that all travelers, regardless of vaccination status should continue to wear masks. some planes, busses, trains and other forms of public transportation while traveling
4:17 pm
each air carrier can and does impose its own mandates. plus uncle sam absolutely requires masks on planes. now those who choose to ignore them face removal permanent, banning stiff fines. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. all right, tom. thank you so much with more on this issue, and others related to covid-19. i'm joined now by dr lee riley, infectious disease expert at uc berkeley's school of public health. dr riley. thank you so much for joining us and let's start with the cdc guidelines on travel, with some states still seeing it uptick. is this really a good idea? so, you know, i think we're beginning to, uh, feel some, uh, i guess, uh, have cdc relax some of the restrictions that they had been im, and this is largely based on the large number of people who are getting vaccinated and decreased number of countries. decreased number of cases were seeing in many parts of the u. s. yes, we are seeing ah, surge in some states
4:18 pm
and northeast question that the florida and those days really need to be monitored more closely and but in other basis. we're really seeing a dramatic decrease. and so i think cdc feels more comfortable and relaxing some of the restrictions that they've imposed in the past will still okay, so the california department of public health will they announce that indoor concerts, theater and performances, another private gatherings that will be allowed april 15th. so what's your take on that move since on lee, half of our state actually received partial or full vaccination? sure. and so, you know, uh, in california, the only three counties i believe they're still in the purple tier state, which is the most restrictive category and so the new announcement by california allows, uh, indoor concert up to certain capacity. of course i think 10% capacity for venues
4:19 pm
that can hold up to 1515 100, people and 20% for venues that can hold a glare than 1500 people. and so this is really again based on the continue decreasing number of cases and, you know about seven million people in california already been vaccinated fully about almost half 50% of people have received at least one dose of the vaccine. we have 40 million people in california, so you know we're really making rapid progress. and this is really, uh. this shows that this vaccination program is really working to decrease the number of cases that we're seeing. so here's the deal. the thing is, we had two variants here came out of california alone. i mean, that's in addition to the various out of brazil, the one of the uk so how could allow these gatherings work without contributing to another operator, keeping in mind that we do have quite a number of
4:20 pm
people? nearly half of californians receiving some sort of vaccinations? have you square that? most of the good news is that the vaccines that we don't have our effective against these california variants of his appearance known as a variance of concerned that the cdc designated and so i'm not really all that concerned. even though these variants are increasing in number, it's really not that surprising and the fact that the vaccine can. prevent infections with these variants suggests that it's these various and not probably of a major concern in california. well, dr lee rally you are the expert, so it's good to hear your thoughts on this. they're certainly encouraging to say the least. dr lee rally professor instead of infectious diseases, infectious disease specialist rather easy berklee school of public health. thank you so much for your insight today. thank you. okay, julie haener notable drop off in temperatures came this afternn with some areas falling 10 to 15 degrees below
4:21 pm
what we had yesterday. how about a look at some of those numbers out there? temperatures ranging from the low fifties over areas of the coastline to low eighties inland. so when i say temperatures dropped off close to the coast and around the bay, we saw significant cooling, but you can see areas like fairfield still 82 degrees this afternoon upper seventies. conquered in livermore. so still a very warm day, especially for our inner east bay today, but nothing like all the eighties we saw yesterday afternoon and take a look at the north bay where we're 67 in santa rosa 56 in the city is heh francisco and 54 over half moon bay, sfo 23 degrees cooler this afternoon, so definitely a change underway. 18 half moon bay 18 palo alto, we go to the inner east bay even in the upper seventies to near 80 degrees at this hour still. seven and eight degrees cooler.r
4:22 pm
breezes back the moisture cooler air coming i well. is tht moisture bringing in the low clouds in the fog this morning oakland reporting a wind on shore at about 70 mph, fairfield reporting, 14 and 12 reported over areas of napa. if we shift a little bit further south, we have sfr reporting 21 mph and san jose. harding 13. so this is the pattern we're going to be settling into for your bay area weekend. in fact, i think we're going to have a little bit more cooling as we get into saturday. here's a look at stormtrooper tube and you could see those clouds just kind of drifting overhead through calling for partly cloudy skies as we get into the evening hours tomorrow morning, partly cloudy start with the fog back in place. i do expect a marine larry too deep in some so we could see a little bit more widespread, low cloud cover tomorrow morning. 48 to start your morning in san francisco 47 in oakland in the east bay, 44 in livermore and for the north bay 41 expected over santa rosa. afternoon highs continuing to cool, so we went from record breaking heat
4:23 pm
yesterday to below average by tomorrow. 59 degrees the afternoon high for san francisco. oakland a better look at the afternoon highs and what you can expect for easter sunday coming up in just a little bit. with more people getting vaccinated. when can we ditch the basques up next year? how dr anthony fauci.

4:26 pm
so much is because. of fear of getting sick and fear of getting other people sick. right so one of the big most important headlines this week came from the cdc director who said that the initial data showed that once you get that vaccine in your arm, not only are you probably not going to get sick, but you're not carrying the virus to give it to other people. so i asked dr fauci if that's true. why do you have to wear a mask? doesn't that mean that we could reopen, potentially at 100% capacity? here's what he had to say. the doctor wolinsky was saying is that the preliminary data that she was talking about strongly success suggests. had vaccinated people do not spread it what we're waiting for and what the cdc is waiting for before they pull back on the recommendation of wearing masks, even though you're vaccinated is a definitive proof of that, and i think you will be coming soon. so what you're likely going to see as more data accumulate? is a recommendation
4:27 pm
or a statement that in fact, if you are vaccinated, you don't have to wear a mask. but we're not there yet. when you're getting there quickly, and there are a number of studies that have been going on right now that they're going to nail that down. so of course, one of the big questions gonna be. how do you prove that you're vaccinated and should there be so called vaccine passport? i asked him about that something that shows that proof that you're vaccinated. if you don't show you can get into stuff, he said that that night makes sense for private industry. he does not see that being a big federal program is not something that he would recommend on a major federal levels. that was interesting to hear that from him as well. also on the show, kristina, we're talking about a big event for the bay area. on monday. kamala harris is first big public event in california since becoming vice president is going to be in oakland. we preview that with carla marin uchi of politico and john myers
4:28 pm
of the l a times we've both been covering her for decades, asked me a big day on monday for the bay area. yep that's right. coming up on monday, right after easter, okay, looking forward to that, of course, looking forward to more with dr fauci. he's a busy man. glad you got him on your show. as always. how can you say no to you? alex right. thank you. so much for that preview. and of course, you can see more of the interview with dr fauci on the issue is airing this sunday at 5 30 in the morning, right. here on ktvu. putting your knee on the net for that amount of part of that amount of time is just uncalled for that man. a top lieutenant taking the stand today in the murder trial of derrick show vin how he says show been violated policy by kneeling on george floyd's neck. and a new option to get your vaccine. costco the latest

4:31 pm
putting your knee on the neck for that amount of pot that amount of time. it's just uncalled for. i saw no reason why the officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. um, and that's what they
4:32 pm
would have to feel to be able to use that kind of force. the strong words today in the murder trial of derek showman from a minneapolis police lieutenant, the head of the homicide division described kneeling on the suspect's neck as top tier deadly force. fox news. jeff paul tells us he was one of two law enforcement officers to take the stand today. the first week of testimony in the trial of former minneapolis police officer derrick show been wrapped up today. prosecutors pushing their case that shelvin used excessive and unnecessary force, which led to george floyd's death. on friday, jurors heard from lieutenant richard zimmer man, head of minneapolis police department homicide division. he testified that he's never been trained that would be the top tier the deadly force? why? because of the fact that if you need is on a person's neck that can kill
4:33 pm
him. zimmerman testified that after handcuffing a person, the threat level goes down, he testified after viewing body camera video from floyd's arrest. there was no reason for officers to believe they were in danger, putting your new young and neck. for that amount of pot. that amount of time is just uncalled for. jurors also heard from sergeant john edwards, who was the overnight supervisor. the night floyd died. he secured the scene and arrived to find two of the officers involved in floyd's arrest. he asked them to turn on their body cameras and put up crime scene tape. i asked them to chill out. because later on, i knew from sergeant kluver that he had a rescuer sergeant's coming down to transport them to interview room. 100 jurors will return to court monday morning in minneapolis. jeff paul fox news. so joining me now is
4:34 pm
tommy to son. he's a former chief of police and law enforcement consultant. thank you so much for joining us today, tommy, let's start with lieutenant zimmerman's testimony now as a law enforcement consulting yourself, does what he said about the need of the neck being top tier of deadly force. is that sound accurate to you? yes it is. in california. we call that excessive force and excessive force is that of course used that exceeds the necessary for us to accomplish the arrest of the purpose. so as an expert yourself when you see we saw the video earlier this week of mr floyd, he was handcuffed the tried to push him into the car pulled him out of the car. um, did you see that what they did? even proceeding that to be excessive. it all yes, i did, because the whole purpose and for a possible counterfeit $20 bill and the force used to take somebody in custody and what we
4:35 pm
were considering a fraction or low misdemeanor in california was really incredible for that type of port that was used, especially after he was handcuffed because substantially reduces. the harm that can come to an officer or bystanders. if a person is handcuff now, you know, aspires. those officers are saying the shopping's defense here is that you could see in the video. um mr floored, um, was worked up about being pushed into the vehicle. he he said he couldn't be in place. close quarters, so they're using that and possibly, they say this history of drug use, although that's not really clear if there are any drugs in his system at the time, but what do you think? do you think that they had a reason to use some sort of force when he. refused to go into the cruiser again. the purpose of them being here was for her low crate, mr meter or infraction. we would have a gentleman like that's just sit down on the curb. well, we get all the facts and get the information and not escalate right away to
4:36 pm
an arrest. and it was just incredible how it escalated and how this occurred because of what they were there for their call for service was for a low grade counterfeit $20 bill, and they handcuffed in which again minimized any risk that they may have had, and they could still set him down. when you had come somebody from behind, you know that it's going to impact their breathing. it's gonna impact your whole being. especially if they're laid in a prone position yet, thanks for thanks for rolling with me because you have seen the video i'm trying to, you know, trying to come up with a reason in my head to see why it would have gone to the extent that it did, and i think a lot of people are looking at the video still to this day, and it happened last year to figure out why would have gone to that extreme and we still don't have really a clear answer as to why did although derek shoppers defense his attorneys saying it was because he had a history of drug abuse, now the another former supervisor with the police department. he took the stand before zimmerman did, and he did mention that shaman did
4:37 pm
not say anything about putting his knee on floyd's neck at the time. do you see a potential issue? why would he or would he not tell the folks in charge that he had done this? yeah withholding information from your investigators is never a good idea. it cast doubt on your testimony casts doubt on everything that you said, and we got to keep in mind. you know the whole purpose of while this took place and it's just incredible to me how it escalated so quickly. it really is. i mean his past. addictions or what have you are irrelevant? his conduct in the store is irrelevant. what is relevant? what should be at issue is the. cause of death the neck, chokind prevent any ever fixation keeping him from breathing. and we only have a few seconds left. but i did want to get your take. i don't know people are watching the trial it any length, but based on what
4:38 pm
you're seeing. i mean, it seems as though the prosecution is presenting a pretty intense argument here, and it doesn't seem like the defense is. is keeping up and for lack of a better term. what is your take on the trial first weekend? the defense is waiting there. leading the prosecution present. it's case and i can see the cross examination come and i can see the defense trying to, you know, go into the credibility of the prosecution for the prosecution does have a good case. it's a very reasonable case, but i can see the defense. they're laying back thinking that they'll find a strategy thinking they'll poke a hole. in the prosecution's case, and i don't see it. i see. all right. so next week is gonna be another week. certainly to watch to see what they do. all right. tommy, tucson, former chief of police and law enforcement consultant. thank you so much for your insight. my pleasure, andrea thing and just a reminder you can watch the derrick shobin trial lives. it happens on ktvu dot com and the ktvu mobile app. costco now offering
