stress of the victims who have relatives in the war torn country. our crime reporter henry lee joins us now from the newsroom with the details, and henry, you spoke with a couple about what they're going through. yeah mike and julie. i did and turns out there are no strangers to crime, but there's still hurt and disturbed by the vandalism. they're not sure what the motive is, but they do know the man acted deliberately and it was all caught on video. like that surveillance video shows a man in the giants jacket spotting a ukrainian flag outside a home in san francisco's into richmond. within moments, this happens. well, whatever reasons, though, the flag got his attention. kind of like a red cape in a bullfight after tearing down the flag man leaves comes back and takes down a larger ukrainian flags from the wall before hurling it onto the sidewalk. homeowner leanna dewitt yak doesn't know what he was thinking. he was clearly after the flags now whether he was after them because he's just nuts, or he was after them because of the significance of

them. i don't know, but he wasn't done. he tossed the planter down the sidewalk and through a second one out onto the street. he went on to hurl cast iron furniture off the front porch vandal pulled the flag pole bracket off the house, damaging the outside. so for now , the large ukrainian flag isn't back on display. i think it was generally angry and hateful. deac is half ukrainian on her father's side she visited in 2019 has been trying to return, but the pandemic hit and then the war. i have family over there that are in the middle of this. this bothered me a lot. it also bothers her because both she and her husband, reno, rafsanjani, happened to be retired san francisco police officers. even so, it took a couple of calls before the calvary came from the richmond station, whereupon yanni formerly worked. no one is immune. this is the safest police district in the city. and you know, we've seen a real uptick in crime in the richmond. and then we just don't have enough police officers anymore.

5:06 pm
white supremacist dylann roof killed nine church parishioners while he didn't specifically referenced the great replacement experts say it's clear desire to attack a perceived threat links these types of crimes. this is simply a fear of white genetic annihilation, and it happens globally. it's been happening globally for some time. it's nothing new. you certainly see this kind of unrest when you have periods of tremendous change and stress, and we have a lot of issues that we're dealing with. right now. you add all of those things together, and what you're going to see is what you've seen historically in the united states is an increase in xenophobia beyond the african slave trade. the u. s has a disappointing past with other racial groups and cultures. the replacement theory came when the chinese started coming in larger numbers. researcher david lay says the us initially welcomed chinese laborers to build the transcontinental railroad. but

5:13 pm
away our rights to vote. are the women's right to vote. so this is going to open up a floodgate , and it is a stern warning. the resolution being considered is similar to governor newsom's plan to make california a sanctuary to help out of state women seeking abortions in the state of south carolina. transgender students will now be required to compete with the gender listed on their birth certificate. governor henry mcmaster signed a bill into law yesterday that bans transgender students from playing girls' or women's sports in public schools and colleges. opponents of the bill say the laws stigmatizes young people who are trying to make friends and build life skills, including teamwork. south carolina joins about a dozen states that have passed similar laws. several 100 students at a san francisco middle school walked out of class today to protest the controversial parental rights in education bill in the state of florida. that bill which opponents called the don't say gay bill. was signed into law in march. the protest today was led by the diversity club at james

5:15 pm
will be treated in the future leaders broke ground on a project today that will move treated sewage from the outdoors near the shoreline of the bay to an indoor facility. ktvu is mark sayers live now in north san jose, with more on the change, mark. well julie, this is where all of the sewage from san jose, santa clara and neighboring south bay city's ultimately ends up right now that treated sewage consider these big ponds just on the edge of san francisco bay for years before it's recycled. but that is about to change. these huge ponds off zanker road in north san jose contained years worth of treated sewage. this is where what is called sludge is de watered where the water content simply evaporates . and then what's left over is used at a nearby landfill as a dirt covering, it's pretty pretty complex processing 175 acres. to treat the material. but but we're all thankful we have it. otherwise there'd be raw sewage in the bay every day. but the days of those big drying pans are numbered ground has now
5:16 pm
been broken on a new facility, which will speed up this process and move it entirely indoors. this process will do is that liquid material will come to the dewatering facility and be dried and move off site in a day or two. the new facility will cost $164 million and will catch the south bay regional plant up with what other cities are already doing. moving the process indoors should help cut down on some of the odors which can be detected in milpitas, alviso and other areas of north san jose, depending on wind and other environmental conditions. councilman david cohen represents this area, he said the change should be an upgrade that will allow us to restore that land to its natural landscape, clean it up over time and then prevent odors emanate from that facility and walked into the cities around it. the existing ponds, which covers 750 acres will be combined, covered and then return to alternative
5:17 pm
uses, including wetlands and then allow us to restore that natural habitat. we have endangered burrowing owls in this area and other wildlife that could use it. now the resulting dried sewage from the new indoor plant is expected to be trucked away, possibly out to farmlands in the central valley , where it will then be used as fertilizer. the new indoor plant is expected to be complete. in 2025 reporting live in north san jose. i'm mark sayer, ktvu fox two news, mark. thank you. recycling wastewater could be in our future up and down the state of california governor newsom toured the facility in los angeles county this afternoon. once the treated water from this plan gets approval from state regulators, it will provide enough water for 500,000 homes. officials say the water is so clean that minerals have to be added back to use as drinking water. governor, newsom called it a profoundly important project. they're successful scaling this water recycling project at the scale they're
5:18 pm
proposing. there have never been a project like this in u. s history and the opportunity to replicate those science and the work that's being done behind me in the work that we have in front of us. will be realized for many other states. the governor did not call for any new statewide conservation mandates today, but he did know that local water agencies are under orders to enact their own level to drought requirements. by june, 10th. it's already pretty nice day out there today . temperatures warmed up a good 5 to 8 degrees and a lot of places temperatures tomorrow we're going to warm further another 10 degrees in some places mid nineties possible for you tomorrow hottest day of the week. we still have wind along the coast. there's a gale warning there. i'll show you that in a minute, breezy conditions and then a fire danger concern as we get towards thursday and friday. more so for the central valley of fire, weather watches those winds kind of funneled down from north to south. so mostly sunny tomorrow hottest day of the week for your bay area week, and it's going to
5:19 pm
stay pretty warm and we're going to find temperatures. on the weekends still in the operators, even some low nineties but tomorrow those those 93 to 95 are going to be as hard as it gets. so as you look at today, the numbers warmer than yesterday by a couple of degrees, and then just where we go tomorrow, which you know you know the drill. so look at santa rosa, coming up on 10 inches 10 inches of sand or 10 inches, 10 degrees and san jose concord, up seven degrees 69 today in oakland tomorrow 80 so 11 degrees warmer day tomorrow. noticeably warmer. the wind like i say is still out there. oh, i got a email from a nice woman who told me the windmills out. there are so that length of that window this is out by, um rio vista area kind of cross from antiochus. you've never seen this farm. it's huge, obviously , wendy, obviously good place for these, but those windmills go 300 little over 300 ft. from the base up right? the arms or the blades on those are 150 ft. long each 300 ft. the base of the golden gate bridge road deck
5:20 pm
is 2 23 100. ft is. how is the hub? of that spinner, right and there's a bunch of them out there. i just huge, huge. the winds are gonna keep blowing. they're going to keep producing wind out there for the next three or four days, and we're going to see that gale warning right along the coast, which is pretty significant, especially using girl. we get gale warnings up north or we get him just offshore. we don't often see them just talked right up and we usually see a small craft advisory to tell about a mile out, and then you get a gale warning. but it's gale warning right along the coast, and that's because he's loads keep tweaking through to the north, right and it's high builds in tomorrow. we warm up winds go offshore, and then this low gets close. the pressure gradient increases in the winds kick up, and that's going to be for thursday and friday, and that's that high fire danger concern i was talking about right in here. through the central valley. it would be a fire weather watch probably will turn to red flag warning. just because of this drought situation, the concerns we have for fuel moistures, and that's that's one of the big things where you know we're dealing with right now, right?
5:21 pm
it's things are drying out and the fuel moistures are getting low. and so the fire has become more of a thing, and the thing with fires is it's really it's about heat it's about it's about humidity and all that, but it's really about the wind. it's really about the wind wind is almost impossible to fight and when the winds start blowing, especially when it's dry, you got problems. and so we're going to see some wind. on thursday and friday in the central valley. already when we come back, we'll take a look at your forecast. got it? all right, bill. thank you. evan musk, rethinking his potential twitter takeover after the break. we're getting an analysis on why the billionaire is pushing a possible pause for the deal. also ahead. coming up at six. we'll hear from families of the seriously mentally ill making the case for care courts why, they say the legislation will help their loved ones, many of them living on the streets. get on a path to treatment.

rickon not move forward unless the company proves that spam accounts make up less than 5% of
5:24 pm
total users on the platform, the tesla ceo tweeted just this morning, baker accounts on twitter. could be as high as 20% moscow also hinted that he would like to buy twitter for less than his initial $44 billion offer must offer to buy the company at $54.20 a share the stock has sent slid the less than $38 a share. now despite elon musk statements, twitter says it is still committed to this acquisition. monica engels , co founder and managing partner of kona, capital investment, infirm monica, thanks for being with us tonight. it's a pleasure. so at first, elon musk is all in right that he would come into the twitter into this company and get rid of those spam bots. and now he's arguing that there may be too many. and if so, the deal is off or possibly could be. why the sharp turnaround, monica i think we all know that the deal is part of the goal to draw attention to, uh, point of view that hasn't been represented so he believes that there is skew and bias in twitter. and so he
5:25 pm
is using his very sensational and, uh i popping deal to draw attention to it, so it's not surprising. there is also now trying to renegotiate because the deal itself was a little eye watering in terms of valuation. i mentioned in the introduction that he was on twitter. just this morning. he was on twitter yesterday. what is the danger here in your eyes of doing this negotiating? on the social media platform instead of during the old fashioned way of just being inside a conference room. well the interesting thing is that the whole reason that he's using this is because he's trying to give voice to folks that don't get hurt. just like the book i wrote about rebalancing and women and other people who are trying to get to be seen. he's trying to do it and the danger of doing it through. the sensational deal is it becomes about the deal and not about the issues about whose voice gets heard. having agency to actually speak your mind. i think they are very important issues he's raised and the fear is that it gets caught up in the deal. so just to clarify that that
5:26 pm
response there this is this has become personal. you think for elon musk that you know people have created fake accounts mimicking him. is this just about one man who has a fixation on on this company. i mean, there is a plutocratic tendency , right this idea that because i have a lot of money, my voice counts more, and that's a danger. right? so i think you know that you know that he has sort of certainly brought attention, and that's important. but it does become a little bit about the deal and his point of view versus the bigger point, which is how do we make sure that twitter and other platforms become a place where voices that don't get heard? really do have visibility about the legal question here. i know if the deal doesn't go through, there's a billion dollar breakup fee that he's going to have to pay. but on the flip side can twitter actually sue him? to enforce the deal that it does move forward. absolutely i mean, he can. you could argue there's a breakup fee there, but it's actually much more than that, because twitter's valuable strap will likely drop if he pulls out of the deal or threatens to so it
5:27 pm
will be much more than a billion dollar breakup thing. all right, monica anghel with cuomo. i appreciate the conversation. thank you, monica. the pleasure. coming up disturbing displays on a university campus in the north bay. the messages of hate in a place that prides itself on education, not intimidation. triple a is anticipated nearly 40 million travelers for this upcoming memorial day weekend how the holiday weekend will affect your wallets.
