4:16 pm
the only from the san francisco labor council. sadly many folks talk about these crimes as either victim list, which is not true, or as crimes that only affect tourists or those wealthy enough to shop. at luxury store, kim and the folks that she represents hardworking men and women, brothers sisters, siblings understand that these are issues that affect all of us here in san francisco. in addition, i want to acknowledge david perry from the union square alliance in lori lincoln from sf travel folks who worked tirelessly to help promote san francisco to keep san francisco um. being the international destination that it is and has been for so many decades. look we all know that we're here because of crimes that occurred in union square just a couple days ago. crimes that are outrageous that are offensive and unacceptable. we cannot. we will not, and we do not tolerate that kind of behavior in our city. looting and burglaries at
4:17 pm
multiple different stores and union square cannabis dispensaries of walgreens on market street, where all hit by groups of organized criminals. thankfully the san francisco police department has made arrests in nine cases, nine individual suspects so far and we anticipate more arrests will be forthcoming. we know that these burglaries received the most attention in union square. but we also know that. areas in the other mission in mid market, we're here. this is not something that's limited to one neighborhood or one designer store. this is something that affects all of us as san franciscans. now. um. the work involved in investigating these cases is tremendous, hugely time consuming, and i want to again acknowledge the hard work from san francisco police. they've been working around the clock. to review video footage to follow up on every single lead available to them. and i'm sure they will have more to say about
4:18 pm
the work that has been happening and it will continue to happen. also want to take a moment and acknowledge that this is not a problem limited to san francisc. we are seeing similar crimes occur around the bay area and across the country. we've heard reports that at least four separate louie baton stores all across the country were hit in a similar fashion. oakland. hayward, san jose. absolute suburbs outside chicago, and many other places have all been hit just in the last few days. because of that. we know we need not just local problems, but we need regional, state and national solutions to address these problems. every single person here today is representative of an agency or body of government that is committed to making san francisco safer that is committed to ensuring we have accountability. when people commit crimes, and it's critical that we all recognize each other's roles and lift each other up when and how possible.
4:19 pm
it is a responsibility of the san francisco police department to respond to 911 calls to investigate crimes to make arrests and to present those arrests. to the district attorney's office. it is my officers responsibility once that is done. to file appropriate criminal charges until see that those charges are carrying through the court system in a way that is just and consistent with our values and our laws. it is the responsibility of the judges in the superior court here in san francisco to make decisions about who was held in custody. pending trial and about what sentence is appropriate african fiction is secured. now we're at the very beginning of this process. criminal cases take often years to work their way through the courts, particularly in the context of covid-19. and what we can announce. today is just the beginning. we're announcing charges that my office filed. against these nine separate individuals based on incidents from the last couple of days, and we will be formally filing those charges with the court today and we expect that these nine suspects will be
4:20 pm
arraigned. meaning their first formal court appearance where we will formally present the charges against them. file include everything from looting, grand theft, burglary, possession of stolen property, firearm possession, commercial burglary and more. two of the suspects had firearms in their possession. when the police arrested them. and so those individuals are facing felony gun possession charges. in addition to some of the other charges that i mentioned. as i said, there are arrangements are expected to be tomorrow afternoon. we are filing detention motions against two of these individuals, and we are also asking that the court imposed all appropriate restrictions to keep the public safe against every one of them. i know that the san francisco police department's job is ongoing. i know that we are all eagerly awaiting more arrests in these cases, and we stand
4:21 pm
together united to send a message. to anyone who would consider committing these kinds of crimes in san francisco that it will not be tolerated. you will be arrested. you will be brought to justice and you will face serious consequences when you commit serious crimes in our city. i want to also be clear about what happened over the weekend. these are not petty thefts. this is not misdemeanor conduct. this is felony conduct in the charges that were filing today are felonies. any discussion about whether or not certain things should be misdemeanors or felonies has nothing to do with these cases. that's a conversation we can save for another day, because all of these charges all of this conduct that we're seeing. is a felony conduct and we are filing felony charges as a result. this is entirely consistent with the approach my office has taken to filing charges throughout my tenure when we see thefts, burglaries or other felonious conduct we file felony charges.
4:22 pm
in fact, our charging rates in the year 2021 or higher than the office's charging rates were in 2019 and are higher than some other district attorneys in the bay area are in this calendar year. i want to be very clear. we're listening. live here to san francisco district attorney chase a boudin's some of the same themes that we've heard over the past several days from officials now that the crimes that we saw in san francisco's union square will not be tolerated. that's a message that was repeated by san francisco police chief bill scott as well and basically hear the big news coming out of it is that nine people will be charged tomorrow afternoon. they will have their first arraignment, and they're all facing felony charges along list of charges. for what transpired there on friday nigh, and district attorney chase boutin calling those crimes and we watched unfold in union square over the weekend, outrageous offensive and unacceptable and he said that these. we're not petty thefts, and he said he's charging accordingly and start bringing felony charges against those
4:23 pm
nine people who were arrested. those charges include looting, grand theft, burglary and gun possession, he says, because some of those who broke into those stores had guns on them after they were arrested by officers and they are all expected to be formally arraigned on those charges coming up tomorrow, and i think it will be interesting to see what comes out of this case only because we have seen so many other stores hit around the bay area walnut creek san jose over the weekend. this really is the first step in terms of seeing people being held accountable for these crimes. just the beginning from what officials say as more arrests are expecte. alright, we wanted to get a checking way out with rosemary oroczo and look. of our weather. hi, rosemary. yes hell, christina and alex. hello to all of you. another delightful day around the bay area, you may have noticed a little bit more cloud cover as a front works through the bay area, also a little breezy, especially along our coastline, giving you a beautiful view there from ktvu into areas over the oakland estuary, the sun getting closer to setting it sets before five o'clock these days. and so we
4:24 pm
have just a little bit time left before the sun will set giving you a look here at the air quality around the region for today. good to moderate. this will remain in place as we roll through the next few days, in fact, only subtle changes. coming our way over the next few days right now. 62 degrees in san francisco low sixties in oakland mid sixties in the north bay of santa rosa and san jose, checking in at 61 7 degrees cooler than where we were yesterday down by five over half moon bay. everybody else within a few degrees of where we landed yesterday into the afternoon, and we do continue to have just a bit of that north and northeast flow. the winds generally light around the bay area. we have six mph reported in concord, seven napa but along the coast in in our heels a little bit breezier mount diablo reporting 30 mph mount st helena reporting 23 backing it up for you here just a little bit. taking a look at the entire state. this ridge of high pressure is going to remain in control for the next several days, and that storm track will be well to the north of us. we are not looking at any rain over the next few days. that includes
4:25 pm
the big travel day tomorrow and then on thanksgiving day temperatures tomorrow morning. the world be a bit chilly 37 degrees to start your morning in santa rosa 47 san francisco. upper thirties and the livermor. some of our valley locations may actually experience a little bit of frost over the next few mornings as well, meanwhile, are afternoon highs low to mid sixties very comfortable for this time of year. i'll have a look at the extended forecast, including your holiday and the weekend coming up in just a little bit. anyway of your slice the turkey. there's always going to be someone who is a pro vax er. or an anti-vaxxer? ah, yes, getting together with the family and friends for thanksgiving. kobe 19 can be a divisive topic among family and friends coming up. we're going to hear from our etiquette expert about the best way to avoid the drama.

4:28 pm
and willing to take other precautions. i talked earlier with bay area etiquette expert lisa marsa grants about how hosts and guests can approach those difficult conversations, and she also offers some advice on avoiding dinner table drama. when the talk turns to covid. you need to voice your expectations. it's your party. so you need to be clear about your thanksgiving party rules, whether it be masks inside everyone back store test test within 72 hours, but. the key is to have the conversation and to communicate your wishes ahead of time, and that way it gives people an opportunity to say yes or no depending on their comfort levels. all right. so the other side of that coin is that you've been invited to thanksgiving event and let's say you got that invite, but it's not exactly clear how many people might be there whether those people are going to be vaccinated, and if that's something you really care about in your concerned about what's the best way to try to
4:29 pm
learn a little bit more about what the situation is going to be before you arrive at that thanksgiving dinner. great question. we always need to give the guests and out. we can't always assume that the host is going to be forthcoming with everything, so it's really going to be up to the guests, then to say, you know, i just want to make sure we're extra careful for the day. what are your rules for the day? do we have to warn max mass. do we have to be vast vaccinated? because we'd prefer it and you know again, it's up to the host. and if you don't feel comfortable, the host certainly can say we understand and we'd love to get together with you some other time, either on facetime or so we don't miss out on the celebration. and we've talked in the past about one of the best ways to kind of broach that conversation about someone else's vaccination status is to bring it up yourself in the first place. i have you found that that has been a really effective way for a lot of people to open up that door and have that conversation. i really do. and we've talked about it on air about, you know, getting a job and how most
4:30 pm
people actually feel comfortable bringing it up. because in this situation, i think it's important to be the role model the number one good part about etiquette is to always make people feel comfortable matter the situation, so not everyone is going to feel comfortable talking about their hvac status or even the pandemic, right. we've been going on almost two years now, so if you share your status, it will automatically if people you know the opportunity to share those share that rather if they're comfortable with it. it certainly feels like any time that the covid-19 and the pandemic response becomes the topic of conversation there can be people with, you know, really strongly held views on either side of this thing, so whether you know whether you're talking about vaccination mandates are you talking about indoor mask requirements? whatever the subject matter, things could get heated. how how do you as a as a host try to make sure that you don't have any of those arguments and drama at the thanksgiving dinner table? exactly there's enough drama
4:31 pm
involved with the holidays, you know, then you add the pandemic of 2020 now almost 2022. it just got completely heated so as a host, and hopefully as i guess you will try to keep the peace. i mean, anyway, your slice the turkey. there's always going to be someone who is a pro vax er or an anti-vaxxer. and that's okay. hey because alex remember when conversation was a two way street. well we need to get back to that. and remember that it is okay to agree to disagree. alright, hoping for drama free thanksgivings for everyone out there. at least a also says that if some of your guests decide not to attend thanksgiving dinner, for whatever reason, try not to judge them and be supportive of that decision. all good advice there. alright well gas prices. they're really getting high that president biden is outlining the plan now to help it involves releasing oil from some reserves coming u. we're gonna hear from an expert on whether this strategy may or may not work. so they were at walmart cleaning the shelves of
4:32 pm

4:35 pm
one of them has life threatening injuries. we saw a shattered window at that store and a number of evidence markers in the parking lot outside. possibly showing where shell casings landed. there's no word at this point on any arrest that might have been made by san jose police also no information on a suspect in this case or what the motive might have been for the shooting. with gas prices soaring, president biden today announced he will put 50 million barrels of the nation's huge stash of crude oil into the market to lower gasoline prices. ktvu tom vacar is joining us live now from san rafael, after talking to an expert about whether or not this plan is going to even work, tom. well, the fact is, it will work and prices will go down. but what happened today is only a small part of a very complex international oil situation. mat johnson was singing the tuesday fuel prices. blues had a nevado gas station. i can't afford it. you know, i'm on disability work, part time and self car
4:36 pm
wash. um it's put him real hardship on me. relief is comin. 50 million barrels, the largest ever released from the u. s. strategic petroleum reserve. help provide a supply we need as we recover from this pandemic. in the wake of the arab oil embargo of the early 19 seventies, the u. s department of energy set up the strategic petroleum reserve, the world's largest known emergency stockpile of crude oil. currently 605 million barrels. the 50 million barrels from the reserve will take a month to get to the market. according to the white house. it will take time, but before long you should see the price of gas drop where you fill up your tank high school of business energy economist severin borenstein says. it usually takes about 3 to 5 weeks to lead to lower prices at the pump, but this time the savings should come very quickly. the really good news is that oil prices actually topped out about
4:37 pm
a month ago and have been coming down since then. and i know that the president is doing everything that they can. it's an international problem. biden announced that china, great britain, india, japan and south korea will also release some of their reserves to have a greater impact on lowering worldwide crude prices. that's the biggest cost and a gallon of gasoline. the total release could be closer to 100 million barrels, so that would be good. it would have a modest, very modest effect. the mere threat of this last week lowered crude oil prices about 5% but thanks to us production these days, the extra money for gas is largely staying in the u. s not going to opec, the u. s. is almost in balance between the amount of oil we produce in the amount of oil we consume. and just so you know, for every dollar a barrel of oil goes down. you saved 2.5 cents
4:38 pm
of the pump. so if it goes down $10 a barrel, which is a possibility you'll save a quarter a gallon. reporting live. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. let's hope it goes down. $2 shapero, tom. thank you. it's not easy for everyone to get food on the table during the holidays, many families are still feeling the effects of the pandemic and food prices are going up. ktvu semantic quintana shows us a school in san jose that offers up some help every year. thanksgiving is still a couple days away. but here presentation high school today is turkey day. it's a day of donation, but also a celebratio. this day is the culmination of our food drive that's led up to this where we've. brought in donations of pop top cans and hygiene items and diapers and formula and so many other thing, so this is like the final like the last two raul the goal is to collect and donate 1000 turkeys. this drive has become a
4:39 pm
tradition that presentation and a competition among grades. but you donate to a class and it goes towards points that are kind of spirit points that goes towards a spirit trophy of but it's really just all in good fu. even parents are getting involved, so they were at walmart. cleaning the shelves of turkey's last night. so it's just fun to help them out. all of the donations go to sacred heart community services directly to families picking up full thanksgiving meals through wednesday, and this year sacred heart is seen even more people in need. the pandemic just exasperates a lot of the challenges that many in our community face right like you talk about displacement. we talked about in our region abou, you know, people making money and the economy being good for some people, but it's definitely not great for a lot of our folk. inflation doesn't help them at all right. because gas prices are more expensive. it's more expensive to live here, and these teens stepped up. often
4:40 pm

♪ so i think to myself ♪ ♪ oh what a wonderful world ♪ focusing on a bay area organization that serves american indians in need. the intertribal friendship house, based in oakland, offers a variety of social services to hundreds of thousands of native americans. many who have relocated here from reservations in other parts of the country. i talked earlier with the vice chair of the group's board about
4:49 pm
the significance of the work they do. the intertribal friendship house was established in 1955 is a direct result of the indian relocation act. natives were brought off reservations to big cities and it was truly a sink or swim moment. many did well with this transition, but many not in yearned for their cultural and spiritual needs. that's where i fh stepped in as a surrogate family over the years, it's morphed into the reservation in the city. hence the name urban reds. it's become a place that provides ceremony. tradition cultural connection, it provides a safe environment to strengthen cultural identity, promote health, intergenerational healing and support the development of extended family. i f. h is the oldest urban indian program in the bay area. what is the biggest need that you see when native americans relocate from from other parts of the country and move to more urban areas like the bay area? what do they tend to need, most
4:50 pm
in terms of support that you provide, so it's a bit of a culture shock. life on the reservation is different than in a city and many times they're relocate. they were relocated to big cities. and so it was. it was very much of a culture shoc. some people didn't even speak english very well, so they didn't really know the ends of out of public transportation, and that's when intertribal friendship house they started off as like a community center kind of like meeting their spiritual needs, but then it torn sort of turned into something like social services that they could trust. many times they didn't trust government recommendations. so the intertribal friendship house stepped in, and it's just morphed into this wonderful community center slash social services. we provide a lot of resources for youth, family and elders serving multi generation. we um offered drum and dance class, beating circles, regalia making basket weaving. traditional cooking and gardening, the name of few. it's
4:51 pm
a safe place we can host ceremonies, and obviously you're trying to help native americans adapt to life in an urban area, like like the bay area, but at the same time you're working to keep them connected to their culture and their identity. we're talking about why that is so important. that's exactly right. when we feel when people lose their cultural identity, they lose a little bit of themselves and they become lost in this society and as we can see in other situations, it could lead to homelessness. it could lead to mental health issues, and we feel like we're serving ah, people as a whole. we're really connecting with them in different aspects that you need. um and especially like once the covid 19 pandemic hit f h quickly shifted gears and delivered food and supplies to keep families safe. at home. it became a trusted resource for community who rightfully so had doubts about government recommendations. i f h helped many elders and extended family

get the covid vaccine when it became available to them. we delivered entire holiday meals to families when they could not be with others. we delivered crafts and school supplies to children who were remote learning. and over time we realized that that was all grea, but we still needed to connect. and so we decided to host arts and crafts virtually and we would deliver supplies to families doors and then we did drum and dance where we got to watch families. moved their couches out of the way in the living room or dance in the backyard with dogs walking by and so it was really nice to be able to connect mentally as well. but even with all of that, um it takes money. it takes funds and we have utilities just like everyone else, and we need to keep the lights on. and if you would like to find out more about the intertribal friendship house or if you would like to make a donation to the group, you can take out your phone and just scan the q r code. that's right there on your screen. you can also head to ktvu .com/ giving day. grammy nominations
