6:05 am
we have been watching all week long. protests bubbling up at berkeley comes to an end rather peacefully. five people were arrested, and that was it, compared to 20 at the same location a couple weeks ago. these rallies were sparked by the expected appearance and then cancellation of conservative commentator ann coulter and her visit of cal. it was supposed to happen yesterday, but safety issues forced her to stay away. 00offs protesters did show up yesterday. our crews were there with some of them. we have been following this since our midday news cast. liberals and conservatives were marching midday to last night. >> not a question of free speech. this is a question of fascism happening right here, right now. and it's a question of whether people are going to stand up against it. >> the police promised us at the beginning that they had us protected. and they would not allow what happened two weeks ago to happen today. >> so two weeks ago referred to civic center park. this is actually from several
6:06 am
weeks ago, what you're looking at right now, violent clashes on berkeley's campus. the biggest one, this video, happened in february when former breitbart editor milo yiannopoulos speaking engagement was shut down by protesters. yesterday, again, things remained relatively calm. >> happening this morning, a san francisco man shot by police will be in court for a hearing. police shot shaun moore at his home in january. moore, who is considered mentally ill, became aggressive when police wouldn't leave his home. officers were called there for a restraining order violation. a judge says police should have left when moore told them to. public defender jeff adachi is urging the judge to drop all charges against moore. happening today, where do things stand now? a major flood meeting in san jose today. this meeting includes leaders from the santa clara valley water district and the san jose city council. it includes an overview of water issues, but this video, the

6:15 am
notoriously hard to measure. the number could get a lot worse because it does not include some key tail data, and it could be revised downward once we get the data. it's the last trading day of the month. the dow is set for its best month of the year so far. stocks have been treading water in the last couple days. that tax plan was a lot more vague than inners were hoping for. the nasdaq closed near record, though. 6048. a moviet( silicon valley has be waiting for hits theaters today. the circle is based on the book from the same name. it's about a giant tech company, think google combined with facebook, called the circle, that's taken over people's lives. >> we will see them. we will hear them. we will hear and see everything. if it happens, we'll know. we're calling it seechange. >> now, that book was written a couple year uz ago, at this point, may be a bit dated

6:17 am
hidroplained, blue a tire, and rolled down an embankment. aiden climbed out the busted back window, up 20 feet to try to find some help. all of that with his own broken leg. neighbors were able to free the father before ambulances arrived. >> he was climbing out the window in panic, and he turned around and looked at his daddy and was like, you're getting out of the car one way or another, dad. then he took off up the embankment. >> he nodded, yeah, that's what i did. shane is now recovering in the hospital from a few broken ribs and an injured leg, but his son saved his life. >> and all the kapdy and ice cream he ever wanted. or cartoons. >> sure. >> like these natural survival skills. he's only 5 years old. >> a mini macgyver. >> exactly. we're fashioning putting together all kinds of things as we get to the weekend, and we're almost there. >> we have awesome weather.

6:19 am
if you're sitting in areas that are all exposed, not in the risers but you're more in the bleacher section, it can go to be very cool out there. as you get out and about, don't forget that we have still have a lot of pollen in the air. it's definitely time to wash the car, too, with that coating of pollen on there, and some dry weather in the forecast. we do still have a moderate level of tree and grass pollen and it continues to be that way over the next several days. as you make weekend plans, maybe you're going to santa cruz for tomorrow. as you start out early in the morning, we'll be in the 60s. then as we go into the afternoon, into the mid70s. it's going to be a this one. not only for santa cruz but also for san francisco with highs in the 70s and staying in the mid 70s as we go throughout next week with some more dry weather as we will see some of the temperatures warming up for the next few days. it will feel more like summer for tuesday and wednesday. we're talking upper 80s, and it wouldn't be surprising if we hit 90 for the first time this year.
