is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? i think he should be ashamed of himself. i think he should go into the background, but what does he do for the black people? doesn't do anything. here is a man who -- i don't know if i say this. he acts so holy. he made love to every girl in every city in america and had he aids and when he had aids, i went to my synagogue and i prayed for him. >> reporter: sterling also said people of his jewish faith have done more for the community than magic johnson. >> i spend millions on giving away and helping minorities. does he do that? that's one problem i have. jews, when they get successful, they will help their people and some of the african americans, maybe i'll get in trouble again, they don't want to help
anybody. what has magic johnson really done for children's hospital which kids are lying in the hallways. they're sick. they need a bed. what has he done for any hospital? what has he done for any group? i don't know. maybe he's done a lot. i know he's successful in business, but i am not interested in business anymore at all. pipe interested in helping people. -- i'm interested in helping people. >> magic johnson just tweeted his response. he said i'd rather be talking about these great nba playoffs than donald sterling's interview. >> the nba commissioner is apologize dogma logic johnson tonight. he says the board of -- to magic johnson tonight. he says the board of governors is working to move as quickly as possible. a dead dock was lying in the street almost a week -- dog was lying in the street almost

i'm not exaggerating, folks. drivers are getting caught off guard by a new detour. we caught drivers doing some stupidly dangerous things. cbs5's joe vazquez shows us what is going on out there. top in thick traffic, s traffic . in >> reporter: look behind me. you can see this barricade back here. if you're on this side of the barricade, you can make it to the left san francisco exit. if you're on the other side, check it out. you have to go all the way across the golden gate bridge and pay a $7 toll to come back. some folks today made a different decision that was yet risky and illegal. , take the turn. it's going to . if you our cameras were rolling today as car after car missed their exit and then tried this, coming to a complete stop in thick traffic, then darting across that traffic in a dangerous last ditch attempt to stay in san francisco. but watch what happens to this prius. >> oh, my gosh!
>> reporter: another prius comes along and sideswipes it. both driver there's to -- drivers had to go to the hospital. still it didn't stop. more cars and even a muni bus doubled back against traffic. officials put up extra concrete barriers. >> caltrans are working on reconfiguring the roadway and some of the signs. >> reporter: let me show you how to avoid this mess. if you're on lombard headed toward the golden gate bridge and want to take that last san francisco exit, this is what you have to do. as you're approaching the bridge and once you get out of the tunnel move over to the right hand lane because it is coming up quickly and here it is, a quick right and you're able to exit that last san francisco exit. if you do miss it, don't try this clever maneuver. don't just pull over, hang out for a while and get out and try to negotiate with the cops. it won't work.

fish from the pacific coast waters of martin beach, this san mateo fisherman had to jump the gate and walk across the property. the sun microsystems cofounder took the stand today. our cameras weren't allowed in court and he didn't want to talk in the hallway. under oath he claimed he couldn't remember or recall any conversations about beach access. an attorney for the surf rider foundation says that's a lie. >> his intent all along in our opinion was to build a private residence there thinking that he could close this down, a beach that's been open for 100 years. >> reporter: this is video of martin's beach on a much foggier day. it's beloved in san mateo county. >> well, it's a pretty nice beach. i'd like to be able to go on it. >> reporter: in recent years he's had people arrested for trespassing and filed lawsuits over access and property rights. >> i really don't know the rules on the whole situation

called a ponga and popular with mexican drug traffickers because they can make long runs, go fast and hold a lot of drugs. the words on the boat suggest it was manufactured in mexico. >> this is the northernmost landing that we've had. we've had at least two in san mateo county, two in santa cruz and other four in monterey county. >> reporter: the cape taken with the marine towing -- captain with the marine towing company is getting used to getting these kind of calls that are more typical along the southern california coast. >> they just finally got these things coming this far north. the first one i did was last year. >> reporter: he's picked up five in the bay area in less than a year. he finds the same thing inside every time. here's a look at what else they left behind. we're seeing a lot of rain gear on board, also a look at when they ate. there's a lot of instant lump, mexican junk food, gray nole --
lunch, mexican junk food, granola bars, hotdogs and dishwashing soap. homeland security says the reason this drug smuggling has increased in recent years up north is because they've busted so many operations down south. that's why most drug runners are willing to make the long trip for an extra shot at escaping. also tonight dozens of people demonstrated in palo alto in support of those kidnapped girls in nigeria. people banged drums, danced and prayed. reverend jesse jackson was also there. today the kidnappers released the first video of the girls since the terrorists took them from a school almost a month ago. the captives are dressed in conservative muslim garb. the terrorist leader claims the girls are safe and will be returned in exchange for militants held in nigerian jails. tonight we have the extraordinary story of a bay area woman who convinced the chinese government to do the
