4:14 pm
tuesday, killing at least four of his fellow students and wounding seven other people. police say james crumbly, bought the gun just four days earlier, and there's no indication it was stored safely. gun owners have a responsibility. when they failed to uphold that responsibility. there are serious and criminal consequences. prosecutors also say the crumbles had plenty of warning that their son was potentially violent at a meeting just hours before the shooting. school officials expressed concerns about his behavior, including violent drawings and notes and internet searches for ammunition and just minutes after the shooting started. jennifer crumbly, allegedly texted. don't do it to her son. officials claim it all adds up to a pattern of negligence that crossed the line into criminality. the notion that a parent could read those words and also know that their son had access to a deadly weapon. that they gave him. is unconscionable
4:15 pm
. meanwhile vigils and memorial services continue here in oxford as the community comes together to honor the victims and comfort the families your apparent anywhere anywhere near here you're feeling for these families. the involuntary manslaughter charges carry a penalty of up to 15 years. in oxford, michigan. steve harrigan fox news. for more insight on this case, we're joined by ktvu legal analyst michael cardoza. cardo always appreciate your time. first putting the fugitive status for these parents aside. how rare is it to charge the accused gunman parents? and what are these charges mean? i mean, is this akin to negligence? well first of all, it isn't unusual. absolutely i've been practicing for over 40 years and i've never seen this before. i'm actually really excited about this case, because i think number one is going to be very difficult to prove. for the prosecution, but i like the message they're sending. and that's out to parents saying hey, hey,
4:16 pm
attention to your kids if there are signs that they may be violent, you better pay attention. you better get the proper people in to take care of that. and then, as you just heard, there was a note from the mother. another note from the mother that i read about. said that when he was looking for ammunition, she told her son in attacks. well i'm not mad that you did that. i'm mad. you got caught. don't get caught next time. what kind of messages that to send to a child, so it's going to be interesting, difficult but interesting, but i like the message. it's sending michael you said this could be difficult to prove. the prosecutor called the facts here egregious. but unlike california and michigan, the gun laws regarding parents and children are more lax, including safe storage. will that play a role here? absolutely it's going to play a role. uh second amendment people, not a problem with this. we should have a second amendment. not a problem with that, if that's how you think, but. if you want your children, your kids to learn how to use
4:17 pm
weapons to store weapons. you teach them. you take them to the firing range. you show them how to manipulate the weapon. you show them how to use it. but you also. tell them how to store it and how dangerous they are. in this case, it doesn't appear to be that so parents have to take some responsibility. and i think a lot of parents are gonna wake up and say whoa, wait a minute. you mean they could come after me for something? my son or daughter? does all of a sudden parents might be tightening up and paying a lot more attention . so, like i said, i'm excited to see how this case turns out because it will be difficult to prove in my opinion. also i like the messages sending attention to your kids. yeah michael. the prosecutor was pressed today by reporters about why the student was allowed back to the classroom. after teachers discovered some of those chilling drawings. here's what she said. and what the superintendent said thursday. let's take a listen. i'm not
4:18 pm
going to give you a political answer, and i'm not going to cover it for anybody. and i'm just going to say what i think. and that is, of course, he shouldn't have gone back to that classroom. of course, he shouldn't have no discipline. was warranted. there are no discipline records at the high school. yes this student did have contact with our front office. and yes, his parents were on campus. november 30th. michael we want to make something clearer. obviously everyone associated with this school. they are all victims. but after what was laid out today, do you think school officials could face any sort of legal responsibility here? well we all face some legal responsibility. anybody can sue anybody. i don't think they will be going after the school or the teachers, even though they might have made a very grievous mistake. and they should pay attention to that. so again, this case is sending messages,
4:19 pm
not only the parents, but the teachers to schools pay attention when you see things like this, knowing what goes on in our society and how susceptible children and teenagers argued the press, and they see. these types of things . why would you let him back into school? you know, take him away. but on the other side than the school says, wait a minute. then the parents turn around and say, why are you taking my kid out of school? and now we're going to sue you. it's a. dilemma that we have to solve. but in this case, the school should air on the side of caution. and when you see dangerous signs, you know drawings, kids writing very dangerous things things. they shouldn't be right. why would you let him back into school? look what's at risk for kids died. their lives were taken from them. seven others were injured. so i think think the school has to air on the side of caution. and never mind what a parent might do, you know, charge in and say, well, we're going to sue because you didn't
4:20 pm
let my kids back into school. well too bad. we thought that he might hurt somebody. and i think most people and most courts and most juries would understand that. like i said, a community still mourning as a lot of people will continue to watch this case, especially with the parents legal analyst michael cardoza. thank you for joining us, as always, welcome, take care. stay healthy. all right. we're talking about the king tides, and they have arrived a little sooner than a lot of people had expected. coastal flood advisories have been issued for low lying areas of the san francisco bay shore line and humboldt bay. the national weather services, the coast will experience and usually high tides and possible flooding through sunday, and as i mentioned the arrival did catch some people off guard today. in possession. a. we had walked by and i noticed the same area in the water was down about three or four ft. so this is kind of
4:21 pm
unusual. the king tides occur in the morning. it will be followed by very low tides. hours later in the afternoon, the national weather service says the peak will be tomorrow. i asked him those astronomical tides as heather mentioned. i'm going to go continuing into the weekend. i'll have a look at where the advisory will be not only for your area saturday, but sunday as well. but first a look outside our doors where we had a lot of cloud cover this afternoon, and as a result, temperatures fell off dramatically in most areas. right back to well where we should be for this time of year because the last several days we've been above average, even record breaking at times alive. look there from ktvu across the oakland estuary, a beautiful view towards san francisco, where you can see the sun. is beginning to set. so here's a look at the advisory. it goes until sunday afternoon. at three o'clock, the shade of green indicates where we may see some low lying flooding at times, primarily through the morning hours. that's when we do expect the high tides. well saturday sunday, just like this morning. it includes san francisco all of
4:22 pm
our base short communities, so not only those low lying roadways and paths, but parks could also be impacted something to be aware of. and for the north based stretches into our valley locations. so for tomorrow, high tide expected to come into the morning hours once again and then low tide will be in for the afternoon, so that best time for flooding on saturday. will be 10 30 on sunday closer to 11 15. and then the afternoon is when we see again the low tide. outside of that the headline for today has been the cooler weather the cloudier weather and we are still cloudy outdoors in many areas with some. folks, not really seeing much of any sunshine today. 55 degrees right now in san francisco, 55 in oakland, 53 napa, 55 livermore and san jose at 55. you can see from the 24 hour temperature change down by 13 in santa rosa , this afternoon down by 12 and napa down by 12 san jose and down by 10 over hayward. not expecting a whole lot of change when it comes to temperatures for tomorrow. so how you felt today? likely how it's going to
4:23 pm
feel tomorrow? the winds are generally light out there under hazy skies. here's a look at tonight and into tomorrow morning do expect the low clouds and fog to fill in once again and then as we get into the afternoon. it pulls back, and we have partly cloudy skies and relatively more seasonable conditions. as far as temperatures go, i'll have a look at those temperatures what you can expect for the rest of the weekend and our first opportunity and maybe some rain coming our way. coming up. thanks for as married. welcome to omicron variant lead to another state wide shutdown here. roy california's top health official has to say confin

4:27 pm
vaccinated that we really have avoided with other variant. so if we see that worst case scenario, could we be seeing another shutdown? he says. no if everybody does their part. we are focused on is having californians do those things that we know work that is. get your shot. get vaccinated. get boosted as soon as you can. we really believe california is well poised to whether whatever covid throws at us, so we aren't even talking about what the triggers are around those sorts of restrictions that people were accustomed to early on, and, frankly, have grown tired of. so we're watching the scenarios closely and the situation closely. but right now laser focused on californians doing the things we have control over right now. he says heather that
4:28 pm
he's hopeful that the vaccines will do something against omicron. they're not quite sure how much yet but that they are encouraging people to still get their boosters so we'll talk more with him this week. we're also going to be talking with political strategist bob shrum on the left, and mike murphy on the right. about omicron and also the increasing crime that we're seeing in the bay area and what that will mean for politics in california. very important conversations this weekend. all right, alex. thank you. and you can catch more of alex's interview with dr galley again coming up this weekend. the issue is the issue is airs at 5 30 sunday morning. two young children are safe with their families tonight after a frightening kidnapping attempt in san francisco coming up, we're learning new details about the woman suspected of the crimes and your next bottle of wine just may cost you a little bit more house supply chain issues are posing new challenges. for local winemakers.

reality is they're not getting care. they're not getting the adequate quick care if any, at all, they're not fed proper diets. they're taken from their mothers at a very young age. oftentimes for profit. they're using these cats, you know, for photo opportunities people are paying 10 15 $20. this is the problem that they may be fun and cute photo. but what's happening behind the scenes how they're taking. being taken care of is really tragic. our tigers, for example, were owned by private couple in texas. they were put into teeny cages. they were confined for months. and eventually, once these tigers grew too large, they couldn't keep them so we actually were able to bring these tigers to the oakland zoo and give them the proper life, given the forever home that they deserve. right and obviously that was something that i think you know, a lot of people are excited to see or happy to see. sadly though, those tigers recently
4:43 pm
died were their illnesses related to the way they were treated as cubs. absolutely you know, when you're in that kind of situation, you know these roadside zoos that exists oftentimes there's inbreeding because i mentioned they're not getting the adequate nutrition and care and diet. so it creates these genetic predispositions that take place we need to have tigers in proper care, and these roadside zoos are just not doing it. you know when people visit zoos visit the open zoo. you're visiting an accredited institution were about 240 of those across the united states. but there are many, many more roadside facilities. that are not taking care of their animals , so it's really important that the public they understand and visit the right type of like oakland and others that are credited. and really not visit these roadside zoos and really push against them and contact
4:44 pm
their local elected leaders their congress people to shut down these institutions and that they know the difference. finally last year at the height of tiger king's popularity, a law was actually introduced called the big cap public safety act that would ban most big cat ownership. where does that bill stand now? yeah, absolutely. so we obviously support the big cat public safety act. it's really important. it has passed the house sitting in the senate right now, so really urging everyone to reach out to their state senators. to encourage their senators to push this passage to get to a final vote and act like this will prohibit types of institutions like tiger king. to restrict the possession exhibition of big cats. it's something that again here in oakland, you will always stand for and spikes for animal and animal rights. and so we are looking to received rescue tigers here in the zoo. hopefully in the near future.
4:45 pm
