tv Mornings on 2 FOX October 29, 2010 6:00am-8:00am PST
johannes mehserle mess good morning to you. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell. it's friday, october 29th. let's begin with a quick look at weather. steve, how long is it going to rain? >> well, for parts of the east bay and peninsula there won't be rain at all until saturday. you can see the heavy rain in santa rosa, petaluma, sonoma county, marin county, parts of
napa county. it was raining in fairfield, vacaville, orinda, oakland, sfo, pacifica. south of that, east of that, nothing. put it north, yes. put it in tighter here and we'll show you towards the north bay that's starting to stack up heavy and when you start to see yellow, red, orange. so far the rainfall has been generally about less than .5. let's get to sal. steve, i've been looking at the
chp list here. wherever the rain moves through we see a spike in the number of collisions. this morning in san francisco, there was some flooding and that caused serious collisions. you can see from these pictures here that the crews had to get out here and unclog this drain. this happens all of the time as debris gets caught in here. you can see they had had to
unclog the drain. the wet weather's also caused a problem with a downed tree in san francisco. crews are working to clean up after a tree fell over in the potrero hill neighborhood about three hours ago. the tree came within a foot or two of parked cars. no one was hurt. it did cause other damage. ktvu's jade hernandez is there and she'll have a live report from that scene coming up in just a few minute. let's go
back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. there's more excitement at at&t park this morning. in fact, the barricades are going up outside the ballpark as the giants get ready to leave for texas. this follows their thrilling back-to-back world series victories at home. ktvu akraig debro is live -- ktvu's kraig debro is live with more. >> reporter: i got this jacket when they opened the park and i'm wearing it this morning.
there are barricades up. the reason for that, we have an insource telling us the giants are leaving this morning no later than 9:00. the team figurings the word will get out, the fans will come down, and so they put out the barricades. this morning, they are just two wins away from clenching the world series. >> to the right. >> and the giants win it 9-0! [ cheers ] >> reporter: giants have a 2-0 series lead over the rangers of texas. the giants also have history on their side. giants have set some records along the way, 20 runs in the first two games. 11 wednesday night and 9 last night. >> always played a lot of close
games. that's just the way this ballpark turns out games to be. it's one of those things where you get used to pitching and then try to really understand, you know, which situations to bear down on. >> probably expected shutouts but our -- shootouts but our guys have been putting out good hits. sticking to the plan. it's paying off. >> sheer dominance, cain really pitched well. he set the tone of the game. nothing waiverred his decision. nothing got him scared. >> freddie isn't chez has a world series record for doubling his first three times up. last night's giants here, it seems like it's a different
person every night. renteria broke up at scoreless in the 5th by hitting a homer off cj wilson and then in the 7th, his bases loaded single brought in two runs. renteria had three rbis. that's the first time he has had three rbis in a game this year. that's including the regular season. giants scheduled to leave here for texas later this morning, arriving this afternoon. after they get on the plane, they are gonna call it a night. tomorrow's game is at 3:30. it will be on fox. let's hope they win. kraig debro, ktvu channel 2 news. >> a lot of people are actually hoping that they will lose a couple of games so they can come back and win the world series at at&t park, right? >> reporter: how dare they! [ laughter ] >> reporter: it's not like the yankees, where it happens often enough where you have the luxury of saying, let's lose a couple. have it back here. [ laughter ]
>> there will be a celebration in san francisco. thank you, kraig. well, this morning the internet is buzzing about the world series. we czeched on a few of the latest tweets. from the bay area, karen massie writes "rise and shine on the way to work drop, dropping my friends off. wish i could go to texas with them." another, "go giants! i would be happy if they sweep the rangers." the first pitch in arlington,
texas takes place just before:00 p.m. west coast time. major league baseball are hoping earlier start time will bring in more viewers, especially younger fans. just a reminder, you don't have to budge. you can watch game three of the world series right here on ktvu channel 2. fox coverage begins at 3:30 tomorrow afternoon. some fans who thought they
bought world series tickets never made it into the ballpark. instead, they were ripped off, victims of scam artists. police say they bought from private sellers online, only to be turned away when they showed up to the game. some people paid as much as $1,000 for those bogus tickets. a teenager from tracy is scheduled to testify against a man accused of torturing him as he was held ptive more than a year. anthony waiters is charged with
false imprisonment and torture. waiters lived next door to the house where the police say the teen was chained to a fireplace. three people who lived in the house have immediated guilty to beating, burning and starching the teen. the release of an autopsy report could answer some questions. the body of a man that was stabbed was found in a ravine.
it's yet to be determined if he was killed or committed suicide. police arrested the boy's twin brother. he was confronted by police and demanded to be shot. sal, any problems from the rain? >> well, we're certainly seeing the spike in collisions from the chp. it looks like rain will pelt and usually followed by that is collisions. let's take a look at what we have. westbound bay bridge, there is a little bit of a backup, 10 to 15 minutes. not major. there's no problems on the bay bridge. getting into san francisco, we've had just a lot of slow traffic. some clogged drains near the
freeway. tough driving. some people have gotten into fender-benders as they hydroplane out of control. this morning's commute at 680 has been better. we've cleared that -- one of the accidents in the area. watch for some slow traffic on the east shore traffic. richmond and pinole already getting some slow traffic. let's go to steve. thank you, sal. good morning. happy friday, everyone. kind of a hit-and-miss forecast. for the north bay you will have rain. for the south bay, not much rain. it will be partly cloudy, mild, warm, upper 60s, low 70s. the rain line was moving east. it bass moving south. it put on the brakes and now it's retrograding back to the north. the line was about at pacifica, snow, oakland, concord, fairfield north. now everything is lifting northward. from san francisco, goal golden gate it will be rain.

fbi agents are investigating yet another shooting overnight at the marin corpse museum in northern virginia. this is the second time somebody has fired shots at that museum this month. the fbi has now tied the gun used at that first shooting at the museum to other shots fired at the pentagon two days later
at a marine recruiting center on tuesday. luckily, nobody was been hurt in any of those shootings. we'll bring you a live report from washington at 7:45. in the past couple of day, meg whitman has said her former housekeeper should be deported. then she backed away from that comment. on wednesday, meg whitman said in a tv interview that her former housekeeper, an illegal immigrant, should be deported for forging documents and lying about her immigration status. when she was asked about that comment during a campaign stop in stockton yesterday, whitman said the decision is up to federal authorities. that's the same stand she had had taken when the news first broke that she had had employered the house housekeeper for nine years and fired her when whitman first learned she was here illegally. there is a sad side to the world series this year.
giants outfielder, jose guillen, is not on the roster. at first the giants said it's because of a health problem but we're hearing now it may be tied to some serious drug allegations. "the new york times" says they are looking at drugs. in a ktvu exclusive, we hear from former b.a.r.t. police officer, johannes mehserle, about his life behind bars. he sat down with ktvu's rita williams in the los angeles jail where he's awaiting sentencing one week from today. mehserle spends almost 24 hours a day in a cell by himself. when he does go outside, he must be escorted by a deputy for protection. but mehserle says his safety is not his biggest concern. >> i don't worry about myself. that's not my -- i'm sure my family -- i know that they worry about me but i worry
about them. >> in july, a jury convicted mehserle of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of b.a.r.t. passenger, oscar grant. mehserle says he went to use his taser on grant since the shooting, b.a.r.t -- grant. since the shooting b.a.r.t. requires more training. >> do you blame your attorney? >> you know, i'm -- i don't know if i can point fingers. do i think it could have been better now that i've heard everything? yeah. >> mehserle says when he realized he had had shot grant with his gun, he was in complete disbelief. he said he tried to calm grant and applied pressure to the gunshot wound and when grant started to lose conscious nbc, mehserle said he prayed that grant would be okay. rita's interview with mehserle lasted about an hour. if you want to hear more about
the interview, rita williams will be here live in about an hour and she will have different excerpts on the 5:00 and 10:00 news tonight. 7:18. four protesters who took to streets after the mess verdict are facing charges. oakland's city attorney filed a civil lawsuit yesterday. police say darryl dugas of castro valley and terry williams stole jewelry from a store. the lawsuit names raquel sharp and paul rasol of oakland. the city attorney says he wants to send a message as the mehserle sentencing date approaches. this afternoon, there will be a ceremony dedicate the b.a.r.t.'s office of the new independent audi -- auditor. sandre swanson will be

commemorate the occasion. she says she intends to spend her prize commuting toll-free and making plenty of weekend trips into san francisco. >> that's a very nice bonus. >> it is. it's 7:24. we want to check in with sal, keeping a close eye on the commute and some rain out there might be impacting your commute. >> absolutely, tori and dave. this morning, it's been the big story. a lot of people don't like get into n the rain because collisions. this is a look at highway 4 westbound. it's dry here and if the rain goes so will the big spike in clickses. let's move -- spike in collisions. let's move -- you can see the ktvu tree is trying to get attention from highway 24. such a praise hog. my goodness! westbound incline bay bridge, that's a nice picture of traffic coming into san francisco on the bridge after a short wait at the toll plaza. >> this morning on 280 northbound, it's moving along

state budgets cuts are crippling my classroom. they can't believe the sacramento politicians will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax giveaway. lobbyists have the ear of people who are just thinking about wealth. when you cut the budget, then you cut these students' opportunities. passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate giveaway and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24 because it's time to give our schools a break.

80 degrees. today about 70, under partly to mostly cloudy skies. it looks like late tonight in to tomorrow the rain will make it. a mix of sun and clouds east and south of that. rain tonight into saturday but by sunday there might be some rain toward the north the trend will be the next system stays to the north and then monday, tuesday, wednesday, look sunny and warm he. dunkin's mills on highway 1, they've had .0 a. st. helena .42. mill valley, .25. last few frames you can see hue the system is coming in and then it bows or bends back and therein lies the forecast for today. if you are on the line, it will had rain, if not -- the low right there needs something to
come bump it. that's upstream and that will send the low in tonight through saturday. today it's mainly in the north bay. cloudy, rain, mostly cloudy. cooler, santa rosa you're in the rain today. 52, 58, 62, maybe a little decrease as the front weakens, it's still holding up in the north bay. 50s, low, mid- to upper. 40s up in the mountains. tahoe, truckee the wind has turned southerly. ukiah has had rain at last couple of days. 50s, 60s, even 40s. 49, 47. the upstream kicker is right there. that's going to send the low and it's going to stop digging and moving east. it looks like it's going over, somewhere across the mountains. so rain for some, north bay mainly. mostly cloudy, cooler for many, not as warm as it was yesterday in the santa clara valley but still not bad. low 70s there. upper 60s to low 60s to mid-60s
everywhere else. cloudy, rain to the north and tonight that system swings in. that gives us saturday rain. decreasing by saturday night. for most, it will be a partly cloudy and then warmer, monday/tuesday. it is 8:11. there is now a scandal tied to the 2010 world series and it involves the giants' player who is not even on the roster.
a beautiful sunrise. >> what was it like to talk to him one-off on-one? >> well, i had heard him in court when he talked a little bit about what happened that night. so i kind of knew a little bit about what to expect. but meeting him one-on-one inle jail for the first time and sitting -- we were essentially knee to knee because of security issues and they took his handcuffs off and we talked for an hour and we didn't stop until they had to take him back. >> a lot of people want to know how he could have fixed up the taser and the gun, two very different weapons. he told you how he got confused about the two. let's listen. >> my taser is just left to the center line of my belt buckle and my gun was to the right on my right hip. >> so you used your right hand?
>> yes, ma'am. >> that doesn't really tell you the answers. essentially, he says he doesn't know what happened. he says he never intended to draw his gun. he intended to draw his taser. he had had his taser out twice already that evening. he was only on the platform for two and a half minutes from the time he arrived until the shot was fired. it was very quick. and he had his taser out twice and removal stored it and then the -- reholsterred it and the fired time was when he thought i took it out and shot as car grant. he said he did it under stress, under duress. the first times weren't. he grabbed what he -- he had been carrying a taser only for three weeks at that time. he talked about training. as we know, b.a.r.t. has ordered more trace -- taser training and you cannot draw
with same hand you draw your gun with. >> he had a fiancee and a baby coming. >> i asked him about that. his first child was due to be born two weeks after new year's day. as it turned out, the baby was born the day after oscar grant died. and he talks very emotionally about that in one of -- in one of the interviews. you can hear a little bit about what he said here. i was very surprised by this question and this answer. >> let's listen to the next take. >> in hindsight, how would you have changed that morning? >> probably called in sick to work. stayed with my fiancee. waited for my son to be born so mr. grant could go home to his family and be with his daughter.
>> some real emotion there obviously. >> well, there's much more emotional sound that you will hear or have heard last night on the 10:00 and more to come today. but on the -- it just shows how our lives are such happenstance. he says he thought about calling in sick that day. he wishes now he had had and oscar grant -- he had and oscar grant would still be alive. >> what surprised you the most? >> well, he didn't believe he would be convicted of anything. as you know, he's the first police officer in california to be charged with murder ever in the line of duty like this. he says it's an accident. he never intended to kill oscar grant. he didn't expect to be convicted. he didn't expect to be in jail. and he does not hope obviously that he's sentenced to prison next week. >> until next week, a week from today, a judge will be sentencing him. what are the judge's options here? >> essentially from probation, he walks out for the four
months he served in jail or up to 14 years in state prison. quite a difference. >> yeah. all right. well, rita, thank you very much for joining us. fascinating interview. you can see more excerpts from this interview tonight on the ktvu channel 2 news at 5:00 and on the 10:00 news. dave? >> all right, tori. 8:19. in the past couple of days, republican gubernatorial candidate, meg whitman, has said her former housekeeper should be deported and then she backed away from the comment. on wednesday, she said in a tv interview that her former housekeeper, an illegal immigrant, should be deported for forging documents and lying about her immigration status. when she was asked about that comment about a campaign stop in stockton yesterday, whitman said the decision is up to federal authorities. that's the same stance she had taken when the news first broke. she employed the housekeeper for nine years and then fired
her when whitman said the housekeeper was here illegally. >> well, there is a sad side to this year's world series. jose guillen is not on the playoff roster. at first, the giants said that was because of a health problem but we're hearing now it may be connected to some very serious allegations of drugs. "the new york times" reports investigators are closely looking at shipments of human growth hormones. agents says those drugs were sent to guillen's wife right here in the bay area. 8:21. there is a disturbing new development in those massive toyota recalls. it involves reports of secret and allegedly unethical buyback deals. if you are driving to your job in the valley, if you are trying to get in from, let's say, mill meet tis, there will be slowing a -- milpitas, there will be slowing along your way.
