airport perimeter breeches. the associated press crunched the numbers from the last decade and found them at the nation's airports are hardly uncommon. sfo the worst. the breaches at sfo range from the unmain from a driver taking a rental car to a secure area to the vague. unspecified security breach. that phrase appears eight times in the sfo data. yes. nine for car crashes at the intersection of central exprez way and de la cruz. >> we meet all the guidelines to our security program. >> reporter: but the federal guidelines are not working. so mineta, the fifth worst airport in the country are

bottle of milk. and them stalking and killing an mit police officer. tsarnaev's defense attorney conceded from the beginning that dzhokhar tsarnaev participated in the crimes. but that he was only following his older brother's lead. her goal has been to keep him off death row. the same jury that convicted him will decide whether he lives or dies. all it takes is for one juror to vote against the death penalty for him to get life in prison. in the news room, allen martin, kpix5. a martinez teenager injured in the bombings has recovered and is about to finish grade school. aaron was with his family in boston supporting his mom who was running the marathon. tonight, california is one step close tore making it harder for parents to avoid vaccinating their kids using the personal belief exemptions. phil matier was at the state capital today. >> reporter: both sides of the debate showed up in force
