with i.c.e. should naughton -- not have been released. two in san francisco have laid blame at the sheriff for his orders and i underscore his sheriff's order, we allege in the claim filed today, the sheriff acted in excess and in abuse of his authority wherein he issued an order in direct contravention of federal law which precluded orders that prohibited any local law enforcement agency precluding them from issuing orders that their employees, their sheriffs, could not cooperate and communicate with i.c.e. that is a direct violation of federal law and an abuse of the authority the sheriff had.
regrettably, the multiple failures that set in motion the events that led to kate steinle's death, do not end with the sheriff. we have seen the finger-pointing. when these marries were brought to the attention of the sheriff he deflects blame. he put it on the shoulders of i.c.e. those responsible for immigration and customs. what he said is he personally had told i.c.e. they were required to complete paperwork, a warrant or an order from the court demanding the return of an individual he had in custody. mr. lopez sanchez and they failed. what we have are two people who are blaming one another but no
one standing up to take accountability. that is why we have taken the steps today to use the civil justice system to have those who have spoken publicly take up ownership of their failed policies, their failed orders, their acts, their only missions. i wish i could stop there. the third claim today is filed against the bureau of land management. the secret that has probably haunted all of us, how could a gun that belongs to a federal official, a ranger, somehow get taken, stolen, and used in this horrible, horrible killing? due to ininvestigated efforts we
have been figured out what has been kept as a secret: the gun was actually placed in a backpack and that backpack was in plain view. the gun was stolen or taken in clear violation of regulations that have to be followed that says the guns have to be kept in locked containers, unloaded, with the ammunition separated from the weapon. here we are not talking about a simple smith handgun, we are talking about a 44 caliber weapon. there was a failure to comply with mandatory requirements on locking that gun. today, i would rather not be here. kate steinle's family would not rather be here.
we are here because of a tragedy and here for people to take ownership and send a message that things have to change. thank you. >> good morning, everyone. first, i would like to commend the comments made by my colleague, frank petri and describing the self-layers of failures of both the city and the federal government and ultimately resulting in the tragic, tragic event. what i am here to describe and to discuss in further detail would be the claim that was filed, directed at the bureau of of land management. as we have all come to know, it took very little for the unlawful taking of a firearm from a federal agent's car.
that loaded weapon found its way into the hands of an individual with a track record of drug abuse and narcotics use, a foreseeable event that person would act erratically and bizarrely in an unpredictable passion and in doing so use a lethal weapon to cause some grave and irreversible harm. as we know, the gun that had been taken from the bureau of land management ranger was taken from downtown san francisco not far from where we are speaking today, an area widely known to be victim to break-ins, car break-ins and thefts. the policy of the bureau of lap management is that weapon should have been kept under lock and key, secured, in a hard case, and in a position where it could not have been taken by someone inadvertently or purposefully. because of that failure, that
--. >> have been listening to a news conference coordinated with the attorneys of the family of 32-year-old kate steinle who was shot and died on pier 14 one of business of -- business of the piers in san francisco. the gun was stolen from a bureau of land management issue, so we have immigration policy if san francisco, the sanctuary moms the first attorney recent talking about so there are claims against all three the we expect kate steinle's parapets -- parents to speak after the tomorrows and we will go back to the news conference. >> san jose city council is moving forward with action on one of the highest priority issues. skyrocketing rents. matt keller joins us from city hall to report.
>> rental praises are skyrocketing in san jose. the question is: how do you provide affordable housing to the difficult while also being fair to the property owners? that is the question facing san jose city leaders. >> technology is not the only thing booming in silicon valley. housing is just as hot. 3,700 units are popping up in south san jose but do not for get to bring your wallet. >> we were shocked about the prices. we moved in, in december and they let us know when the lease would go up, it would go up a few hundred dollars if we stay. >> rental prices have skyrocketed in five years and san jose said the average rent in 2010 was $1,450 a month. this year it is $2,227, 54 percent increase as the median income has only increased by 11 percent. the city does have a represent criminal palm but only for
properties with three or more i'ms build before 1979 which is 35 percent of the 122,000 renter occupied dwellings in san jose. landlords are limited to 8 percent increase in represent a year without an exemption and have to give 60 days notice if they dough a no cause eviction and are not allowed to raise the rent to market helpfuls for the next renter. today, the city council will decide which direction the staff go on this issue taking into account the exact on renters and property owners. some people already making tough decisions about where to live. >> $3,000 a month in gross pay how can you afford $2,000 a in in rent? >> there will be a rally today and the goal is to have a proposal in front of the city council by december. >> now back to the news
conference from the family of 32-year-old kate steinle what was shot and killed two months ago today. this is her brother speaking. >> in a moment, your daughter or son could be taken from you. the fracture to respond and make any changes says to me what was done to kate was okay. that she was collateral damage. she didn't matter. that nothing will be done to change in the future. no amount of money will ever bring kate back. i hope standing here today making a statement will start the process of change so people will feel safe when they come to this city. thank you.
>> i am kate's father, jim and i appreciate you being here today. just going to say that shortly after indicate died we got condole helps and cards and letters and text from the mayor, from the police chief, and on and on and on and shiver -- sheriff mirkarimi and since that time the silence is deafening. we are hear for kate primarily but we talk and prayed about it, we are here for every citizen of this country every citizen that comes to san francisco. to brad's point, if you think this can't happen to you, think again. i'm walking down the pier arm if arm with my daughter and a close friend. she stops, takes a selfie, turns
around and shot. as she fell she said, help me, dad. that is my bedtime story every night. if you want it to be your bedtime story every night then do nothing. but if you feel this was wrong, and it is, be active, let the people in this city and the state and the country know this cannot go on. to give you an idea of how crazy it is, a peace officer from hayward california had his gun stolen two weeks ago. also, after that, the police chief of uc berkeley had her weapon, a 44, stolen from her car. this is a police chief! what brings to my mind, is there no protocol? do they not care?
are we out of control? i think it is a little bit of everything. we are just...trying to let people know what is going on. it is sad. when you think of the sheriff that is elected and appointed to do two things: to keep the people, the city and the county and the people that come interest caltran safe; and to have people abid by the laws of the city and the state. but this man on his own thoughts, whatever, decides who in their right mind would let a seven year fell listen undocumented, violent felon, lose on the streets where you people are now standing? it is frightening to think about it. we are here not only for kate and to keep her momry alive but
to have something done so we get a call or a t or e-mail from one of these government officials and say, this is what we are doing to solve this problem. as of this moment and this day, that hasn't happened. thank you. >> this is for accountability. for public officials that we have voted for and put in office not doing their job. this is for humanity. this is for the future. ours is gone. it is again from us. but we want it better for the good of all. that is our hope and our wish. i hope and wish that all of you and anyone watching this would write your congressman, get ahold of your senator and make them know we are tried of not
getting anything done, we are tired of the wheels running and running like a rat in a cage and nothing getting done. we need to be proactive and make it a safer world for all of us to live in. thank you. you can see the commitment of our --. >> this is a live news conference in conference for the family of kate steinle, the woman who was shot to death at pier 14 in san francisco by a five time deported mexican national, igniting debate over immigration specifically illegal immigration. her attorneys continue to speak for the family and the parents and the brother, we heard from all of them urging different strands of change but one of then, certainly, is taking issue with the fact that under the
city's sanctuary law they released the suspect and does not notify federal officials. we will stream this for you on abc7 and take spending the day with my niece. that make me smile. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free.

what do a nasca comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop.
xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
