of the times and is the perfect fit. have you felt any cons from fans or people along the way? >> from fans of course. they loved steve perry and kent accepted, but it is okay. i also treated as a challenge, so that is why i am still here. they don't feel convinced that i have got it, to be one of the bands, it's singer. that's okay. at least i know that i try my best. >> what makes it all worthwhile for him is to represent >>we are really courageous to try it, even if we know we are going to fail. we will still try because there is this 10% chance that we will make it. so let's keep striving. it is the only way to chase our dreams. >> reporter: or as he regularly and passionately things on stage, don't stop believing.

here is a peak of our microclimate forecast. i don't know if peak is the right word because we cannot see anything. >> yes, and i enjoy mornings like that where you can sleep in and look at the cloudy skies. but we will get a little bit of sunshine at some point today, so san francisco right now, about 50 degrees and we are even seeing some drizzle out there but you notice in the icons and the hourly forecast, by 1:00 or 2:00, a mix of sun and clouds, and the biggest thing leading into the weekend will also be the increase in wins. right now in san jose, also seeing some of that cloud coverage. temperatures start to bump up and by about 1:00, the 70s and then a little bit sunnier through the interior. it is also pretty humid and that will bring us a chance of some showers, but i will guide you to that in just a few minutes.

7:33 am
>> at 11:35, officers entered through the same door. by 12:03, 19 officers were inside of the school and hallway but did not enter the classroom for 47 minutes. despite at least 8911 calls from young students at this will rigging police to come in now. >> you are seeing the unseen commander at the time leaving that it had transitioned to a barricaded suspect. so in hindsight where i'm sitting now, of course that was not the right decision. >> the governor expressed her outrage. >> the information that i was given turned out in part to be inaccurate, and i am absolutely livid about that. >> it comes down to two things, incompetence and cowardice. >> security consultants michael and ensure says that standard active shooter training says that is there an officer
7:34 am
available? one should go in. >> out of 19 officers, not one had the courage to do the right thing. i really am at a lack of words to explain the lack of an action and the fact that these poor kids suffered immeasurably. >> reporter: angeli rose gomez was one of dozens appearance who rushed to the school and pleaded with police officers to run inside. she says that she was handcuffed and when she was uncapped, she ran on campus resolve. >> i wish that the police department could have done more, gone in there and put more pressure on. that is why we are in this loss today. if i hadn't jumped through that fence and got my own children, they would have been in the same predicament. >> grief turns to anger as the town continues to look for answers. less than 300 miles from you all day, the nra convention went on and former president trump called on republicans and democrats to unite, to harden schools to prevent school

7:37 am
i think that a three-step process of connect, care and challenges really helpful, so to connect is really understanding your children and making sure that your relationship is strong with them. care is helping them understand that they can work through anything they are working about. if they are anxious, it is okay and you can be anxious with them. the challenge is to help them develop skills around dealing with the anxiety or being afraid. it is okay to be nervous and we are going to talk to you about how safe our school is. if you don't want to go to school today, maybe that is okay, but your friends are going back. you want to build a community around having a plan, walking with your children. it is critical to your kids where they are as opposed to everyone else. >> yes, and like you have mentioned before, there are sponges and pick up on our emotions as well. active shooter drills are part of a lot of curriculums now and it is very important but i am wondering how this affects the
7:38 am
kids psyche? >> it is different for every child, so given the situation that we are in, everything in the world, there is high anxiety for children and parents and children are concerned and fatigued. it is so important for them to have outlet. but it does not have to have a huge impact on children for the long-term if in the short term you are having conversations and stockpiling positive experiences. if they know the door is already open for them to have a conversation with you. >> importance on all of those car rides home. thank you so much for joining us and giving us great advice. a stolen police car in the east bay leads to a chase and crash and oakland police say around 8:30 they were investigating a suspect in connection with assault. he stole a marked patrol car and took off. they chased him into the lay hole where they crashed into a

7:56 am
minutes of the gunmen entering one of the classrooms, police officers were inside of the will. but the commander on scene made the decision to standby for an extended period of time as dozens of rounds of gunfire could be here from inside the classroom. he said that the decision was made by law enforcement at the scene because they thought it had turned from an active shooter situation into a barricade situation. that is even as 911 calls were being made by victims still trapped inside of the classroom. even the department had calls this a failure on the part of responding officers. speak in mind in the doctrine of active shooters, that you can transition from an active shooter situation to a barricaded subject but if shooting continues, then you have reason to believe that there are individuals alive in there and you have an obligation to move back to active shooter posturing and get everybody out the door. >> that was department of public safety colonel stephen
7:57 am
mcgraw and he also says there were other failures as well. one teacher who heard an initial car crash involving the gunmen mistakenly left a side door open, which allowed the gunmen to enter the school building. it is possible that police at the scene were not aware of the 911 calls being made by victims trapped inside. mcgraw says that there are still so many questions that need to be answered. giants manager gabe kapler is getting national attention because he says that he will not participate in the national anthem until he feels better about the direction of our country. kepler made this known in his blog after the massacre of the 19 children and two teachers. before last night's game in cincinnati, he told reporters how he plans to express his frustration. >> i don't plan on coming out for the anthem going forward until i feel like there is -- until i feel better about the
