11:00 pm
live, from the cbs bay area studios, this is kpix 5 news. >> tonight, oakland, burning, it's absolute mayhem in the streets for the second night, hundreds of protesters took over the freeways, only this time, they did it twice. looting, setting fires, and vandalism along the way, we have seen it all. >> joe has been watching this cat and mouse game playing on 880 and 580 all night long. >> reporter: police estimating 350 demonstrators on the streets of oakland for most of the evening, their intense focus has been on trying to block the freeways. this is how it played out over and over tonight. demonstrators would sprint toward a freeway entrance ramp, then get with police, on to the
11:01 pm
freeway, and block lanes of traffic. neighbors driving home had to come to a screeching halt. the cops would quickly amass the troops and push the demonstrators back. [ shouting. >> reporter: ] >> reporter: he explained to me the reason for taking the freeway. >> if the police won't do somebody about their own internal problems and they won't protect our lives, thep we will mobilize and protect ourselves and take control of the streets, of the city infrastructure and whatever else we need to in order to ensure our lives and longevity. >> reporter: why shut down the highway, so that's clear? >> it wasn't my decision to shut down the freeway, i can't say why they decided to shut down the highway, but it just makes it in terms of shutting down
11:02 pm
business as usual and bringing the world of commerce and regular daily affairs to a halt until we address the crisis and genocide that's happening at the hands of law enforcement in america. >> reporter: when i was in the middle of one of many skirmishes tonight and demonstrators get right in the faces of the police officers they showed incredible restraint but in this one moment, this one woman was yelling at a cop and he actually told her, you know what, if i were you, i would back up because people are throwing rocks at us and it's not a safe place to be. and he wasn't joking, take a look at this picture just tweeted out by the chp in oakland, they've actually recovered a rock being thrown at officers by deck straighter -- demonstrators and we know there are arrests but we don't have numbers just yet.
11:03 pm
>> joe vazquez, thank you. telegraph, stretching all the way across the street, garbage cans from the neighborhood and then used the garbage to keep the fires going. we saw other fires around oakland tonight as well. now, down the street at 34th and telegraph, protesters did their best to bash in the windows of the walgreens, they also sprayed graffiti all along the sides of the building. >> a lot of the vandalism along telegraph, 42nd and telegraph smashing their way in to this dealership, hard to tell what they did inside but you can see individuals running amongst the cars there, the group dispersed pretty quickly, this is what chopper five got from the air. christin ayers saw it all, she's noticed something
11:04 pm
different about these protesters, christin? >> reporter: still milling around, they've crossed from oakland in to emoryville, and that's one of the things we've seen, the tactics are similar but we've seen the businesses targeted from oakland as opposed to the middle of downtown oakland and protesters targeting big corporations rather than small businesses, some protesters saying that was intentional. for the second night in a row, a peaceful protest evolved in to this. [ shouting ] >> reporter: the doors of a walgreens kicked in, fireworks set off. as protesters scrambled on to a freeway. as chaotic as it was, protesters told me there was a plan tonight. >> everyone's organized, together, following rules. >> the protests look the same, you see the same vandals. >> reporter: graffiti on some
11:05 pm
businesses, protesters tell me they have a different strategy this time around, they're not targeting small businesses. our cameras captured several protesters tagging, but small businesses went virtually unharmed. and we quickly found out the next rule, no taking video of vandals in the act. protesters tried to rustle away our cameras tonight when we took video of one vandal. >> shut the camera. >> reporter: the consensus they agreed, no incriminating law breakers by showing their faces on camera. again we don't know exactly how many arrests, we do know the protests are continuing tonight, the crowd has shrunk quite a bit, but again, people crossing over in to emoryville in to the next city, police called mutual aid, fremont police driving around here earlier, this may or may not be the end of a very active night of protesting, we'll have to keep an eye on it tonight, ken. >> okay, christin, an agreement not to show protesters, but we will as long as we have cameras
11:06 pm
show everybody what's going on, thanks for your help. >> reporter: absolutely -- >> #handsupdon'tshoot is trending tonight on twitter, the woman who shot this was in the thick of it, protesters held their hands up in front of a line of chp cars on 580, another tweeted no justice, no peace, along with trash cans on fire in mcarthur. other protesters set this mattress on fire in the middle of the freeway. chopper 5 also over demonstrators in san francisco's mission district, 150 protesters made a sweeping circle near 24th and valencia, they marched around for about an hour, and ended back at the bart station, many told the crew they were then heading to oakland. to ferguson, missouri where this all got started because the grand jury chose not to indict a white officer for shooting an unarmed black teen, tonight it's
11:07 pm
a little calmer, take a look at the right side of your screen, protesters first tried to flip it over and when that didn't work, they then tried to set it on fire. short time ago, police ordered protesters to leave the streets or face arrest. also tonight, the governor of missouri has ordered more than 2,200 national guard troops to ferguson, that is triple the number that was there last night. andrea borba is keeping an eye, we are hearing from the officer himself, andria? >> reporter: that's right, in the interview, officer darren wilson says he has a clean conscience because quote, i know i did my job right. >> reporter: once again lighting up the sky in ferguson. as protesters and officers faced on in the streets and in front of the police department. after a near nonexistent presence last night, tonight there are triple the national
11:08 pm
guard troops in place after more than a dozen businesses were torched and looted. >> why did you promise me that you'd be here to protect my workers? >> reporter: there are questions being asked of the timing of the grand jury announcement, reverend al sharpton placed blame the unrest would place on the officers. >> in a town that has been forecast to have all kinds of problems, his solution is let's announce it at night after dark. >> reporter: in the aftermath of monday's chaos, darren wilson, the officer who shot and killed michael brown says the teen did not put up his hands. >> get back i'm going to shoot you. and then his response, immediately, he grabbed the top of my gun, and when he grabbed it he said you're too much of a [ bleep ] to shoot me. and i can feel it get inside my hand and try to shoot me with my own gun. that's when i pulled the trigger for the first time. >> reporter: now, among the
11:09 pm
stores that were looted, ferguson mark and liquor, the same store brown was seen robbing, standing in front of this video, the store's owner, surrounded by the looted remain of his business. when the owner was asked if he was all right standing in front of all that mess, he says, yes, sir. andria borba, kpix 5. the woman among several hundred people blocking traffic outside the police station, the driver plowed right through them, officers were right there to make an arrest. and with kpix 5 and for the latest. also the news tonight, bart was a complete mess as well, two stations had to be shut down for hours because of medical emergencies police say they found a dead body on the tracks at the downtown berkeley station, and a person on the tracks under a train at the
11:10 pm
embarcadero, that person taken to the hospital. tonight we're getting a good look of a security breach, 39-year-old miguel zaragosa going on a ticketing line, he breaches security in an area where private jets fly. he was eventually arrested, this is the third big security breach at me netta since april. and parents in fremont are scrambling their five new day care because their day care center has been shut down, furniture crushed a pair of preschoolers and the school did not call 911. >> before school got out, fremont's code enforcement team posting notices, after everyone goes home at night, the
