where protesters have engaged in a week of protests, tearing down images of the ayatollah and taking to the streets. they've also been burning hijabs as we mentioned earlier in the newscast. this, of course, follows the death of an iranian woman, massa amini, who was arrested for not wearing her hijab correctly. she died in police custody, and now women are demonstrating and yet another way by cutting their hair. videos irculating on cial media show iranian women chopping off their hair in protest of iran's restrictions on social freedoms, uploading many of these videos online before the government cracks down on internet and phone use. other videos show women cutting
4:15 pm
off their hair right in front of a large crowd in the middle of the the country's strict dress code. here in the bay area. more than 6000 people marched in protest across the golden gate bridge yesterday they joined others all around the world, expressing their outrage over the death of that 22 year old woman. the protesters say it was the latest act of brutal oppression by the government in tehran. change hoping something could change in iran. the government hoping for freedom law has been ruling iran for the past 43 years. i think right now the moment has been created where people are explaining that they don't want it anymore, and we want to support it anyway. we can organizers of that protest say they are planning more demonstrations here in the bay area next weekend. the details are expected to be released within the next few days, and one of the organizers of the san francisco event joins us live now this afternoon. hamid azimi
4:16 pm
is with the nonprofit iranian american community of northern california. really appreciate you being here this afternoon. you had just a tremendous turnout yesterday. why do you believe this woman's death has garnered such a huge response? hi so the reason that we're seeing this kind of response is that the iranian society has been under pressure for the last 40 years. in a sense, this was the straw that broke the camera cameras back the united of the power cake that you know the regime has been sitting on and we had a different rally in san francisco yesterday in union square's as supporters of iran's main opposition group, the national council of existence of iran. which is ironically, led by a woman, mrs maryam rajavi, who has a 10 point plan for the future of iran that calls for separation of mosque and state
4:17 pm
calls for the full rights for women calls for the market economy and wants a non nuclear iran. so in a sense, everybody all the iranians inside and outside iran are coming together with the call for or regime change in iran and our expectation. from the international community is that to recognize the right of the iranian people for regime changed in their own hands in iran, and at the same time, make sure that there are punitive measures taken against the dictators ruling them. the ayatollahs should not go free after these type of killings, the sanctions against them against the military apparatus. could be in forced and anybody who is helping them in a sense to break down the internet connection, providing them with
4:18 pm
equipment that allows them to censor the voice of the people should also be sanctioned. okay, so how hopeful argue that some of those things that you just discussed will actually happen. we've seen protests in the before in iran. we have seen before, but everybody who is closing, having a close look at the situation knows that this time is differently different. from the very first hours of the uprising, which was 10 days ago . actually, we are getting into the 11th day the slogans that people were shouting in the streets were aiming the institution they were calling for the end to the supreme leader. they are calling death. death to harmony ditched too racy, and these are the kind of things that people are calling for one of the most this communist slogans is that we do not want any kind of dictator
4:19 pm
which shop or bid the supreme leader. showing everybody in the world that the people of iran are determined that they will continue their anti dictatorial movement. and this time around is definitely different. everybody feels it or family that we are in contact with are telling god that they feel this is the end of the road, and they are expecting the international community to speak up in support of the people of iran and for the government to recognize their right for regime change in iran in their own hands. alright, really appreciate you coming on this afternoon. thank you. thank you for having me. coming up here on the floor today more discussions surrounding the 2024 presidential ballot, the white house says. for now, president biden intends to run but questions remain will have a closer look with our political reporter greg lee after
4:20 pm
4:21 pm
4:22 pm
could look and feel a lot like 2020 if president biden and former president trump both run at the top of their party's tickets, but as foxes, lauren blanchard tells us polls show voters want to see newer candidates. yes. celebration at the white house as president. biden welcomed the 2021 world series champio , the atlanta braves less celebratory, a new poll that showed a majority of his own party wants someone new to all the percentages of scene. my batting average in nearly as good anyway, a new abc news washington post poll found that only 35% of democrats and democrat leaning independents president biden back on the ticket in 2024 56% say they want someone else. most democrats don't want to see joe biden run for reelection. they don't support him. he intends to run.
4:23 pm
uh don't have any more announcements on that. on the republican side, the poll found 47% of republicans say they want former president trump back 46% say they want another nominee, and that same poll showed if there was a repeat of 2020 with a biden trump rematch, president biden would come out ahead by only 2% points. people counting you out. heck i know something about being counted out. i know in georgia, you show up when it counts. the poll also asked voters if they thought former president trump should be charged with a crime in any of the federal investigations he's under 52% said. yes cheney, the vice chair of the committee investigating the january 6th attack on the capital, and the former president's involvement, says she will not be a republican if he is the nominee in washington. lauren blanchard, fox news governor. newsom is back here in california after a short visit to the lone star state over the weekend, the governor spoke at the texas tribune festival in austin, and
4:24 pm
he once again feel the questions about plans for his political future specifically about whether or not he plans to run for president for more on the ongoing speculation. let's bring in our political reporter greg lee and greg the governor keeps saying, i am not going to run for election. president for the race for the white house in 2024. a lot of people aren't buying it, his actions say otherwise. and that's just that is his actions. i have asked him that question directly. numerous others have asked him that question directly. and as you know, the governor many may not realize is running for re election in november in the state of california, he has a giant war chests with money that he has raised millions of dollars to run for governor again. he has spent the bulk of that money. out of state and states like florida and texas, jabbing it. republican gover in seven states that are working te actions you're talking about, and that's why running for
4:25 pm
president? let's take a listen to what he said, consideringres4 2028, not even considering not at all. and i thank you. i'm glad you're applauding. no. um no. no. and no. i've said it in french, italian. i don't know german. i mean, i cannot say it enough. it's humbling. it is sweet. it's a nice thing to be. so this is sort of the tact he has taken, which is sort of to make light of the issue. and so in this same conversation, same speech. he denied the speculation, but he also went on again to criticize national democrats, urging them to go more on the offensive, saying, we've been very much on the defensive against national republicans but again urging his party to do more, which comments that would lead, many to believe that he wants to get that his actions suggest something different than what he's actually saying. i guess one of the one of the questions is why if you have any interest in if you're gavin newsom if you have any interest at all in running for the white house, why not
4:26 pm
just be a little bit more upfront and say you know what i might consider it, you know? certainly it depends on whether president biden decides to run. it depends on this factor that factor. why not just be a little bit more forthcoming? so you said it right there, and we saw it in lauren blanchard's package that democrats are looking for a sense of immunity to stick together and they're waiting to see what president biden does if he decides after the midterms, whether or not to run again. talking to political experts and some democratic strategists, they say raising his national profile is a light lift for the governor because many believe he's got an easy run to re election in california so he can sort of test the waters elsewhere to see what the reaction is to him. right however, if he does change his mind, which we know politicians have a tendency to do, do you see this really strong stance of ? no i'm not running in every language language out there. i'm not running. do you see that potentially coming back to hurt him? public it republican candidate running against gavin newsom in a general primary for president down the road. 24 28. that is the ad you
4:27 pm
put you stitched together all the nose and say i have no plans. i have zero interest, and now he's running because what are people not like about politicians? it's they believe they cannot trust them. and that becomes a matter of trust. speaking today of mcewen, speaking up my political expert, he says. this would also give republicans some fodder running against him because, as you know, many perceive elsewhere out of california, the issues we have on homelessness on crime on cost of living, so he said republicans would welcome that contest if he does, indeed decided to run, and so finally to that end do do we know where governor newsom might stack up on a national stage against some of these other candidates who we expect to run so keeping in mind? it is very early. we've been speculative about polls looking back to august, there was a you gov. whole done that put governor do some head to head against rhonda scientists, the florida governor, he won that by a narrow margin. there was one that put governor newsom against former president trump, and he won that by 1% point, so it shows that he would farewell.
4:28 pm
he would especially farewell in the state of california. but again the four years eight years that is an eternity in politics and again, he says, i'm not running zero interest. still use that term. that's exactly right. yeah, thank you guys. but over the last eight months, ktvu has been investigating fc i. dublin. it's a low security all women's prison in the east bay. there have been numerous claims of sexual abuse, intimidation and retaliation of inmates. they're coming up. next we sit down with a legal expert to ask the lingering questions about what's next for those accused of these violations. and the victims moving forward. plus the hurricane threat looms as hurricane ian closer toward the gulf coast. the storm preparations already nder way. there's a reason comcast business powers more businesses

4:30 pm
4:31 pm
even a low security all women's prison where dozens of inmates have a used correctional officers of sexual abuse, intimidation and retaliation. five officers, including the former warden, their face criminal charges last night. ktvu is christina brendan brought you are ktvu investigative special called powerless in prison, surviving sexual abuse. here's just part of that report. more than three dozen who are currently or formerly incarcerated described to us how they were sexually verbally and physically abused over and over again. the women also told us they were either
4:32 pm
ignored or punished for one i didn't want to be put in special housing. i mean, like, i didn't want my room tor up like it's just stran and like like the ou. buttigieg and treat you worse, sir. i felt hopeless and like they didn't believe me because i wasn't inmate and nothing i said, mattered. all right for more. we're joined now. by daisy korea. lopez from central legal della rossa in oakland based legal aid organization that provides services to some of the inmates at fc i dublin. we appreciate you taking the time here. we see all of these women coming forward detailing all of these horrible allegations of abuse here. what do you think comes of them stepping forward like this? do you think we are likely to see meaningful reforms at fc? i dublin? i think we are
4:33 pm
when we listen to survivors and what their needs are. really wanted. what we want to see happen after him. all of these stories from folks is these four things we want. we want survivors, um, to get the resources they need to be able to hear from their trauma. two we want noncitizen survivors to not be three protected from deportation because there is a pipeline from dublin to ice custody after folks finish their sentences, and also we wanted there to be more access to the resources inside of the prison for community based organizations to come inside to provide those services to survivors, so they can like again, like start healing from the trauma that they've experienced. and then our last thing that we really want to see changes that the people who have done this abuse to not ever hold any position of power like that again, and to not be, um in position power with vulnerable populations like these, and i think it's again when solutions are driven by those that are
4:34 pm
directly impacted. i think that we can reach a point where actual solutions happen. you mentioned holding those who are accused of this abuse accountable. we talked about the five correctional officers facing criminal charges, including the former warden here for these abuses. at least two dozen more officers, though, are under investigation. right now are is it your expectation that we will see more criminal charges? um i think my expectation is for there to be resources for survivors. um, i can't speak on what justice means on that aspect, because really, we really want to focus on making sure that people who are directly impacted reserve the deserve and get the things that they need to be able to heal from this trauma. i don't believe that, um, prisons are safe spaces for people to rehabilitate. and i will say that what do you think enough has been done or what steps do you know that have been taken to protect the women who are at fc? i dublin right now, i know that the facility has taken several
4:35 pm
steps to remove officers who who have known other abuse and taking them out so they don't remain those positions of power. um, i think that not enough again is being done to make sure that the survivors get the resources they need to heal from the trauma. i'm shifting it back to that, you know, because that's what's important. it took a lot of courage for these folks to come forward and speak about this abuse and, like just shaping it to what's going to happen to the officers erases all of that all of that courage, and that's what we don't want to happen. what about this notion of this sort of larger question of having correctional officers who are men? guarding and having direct supervision over inmates who are women. there's some people who feel like that, that that that dynamic is part of the issue here, do you do you adhere to that? do you think that's that's part of what should be looked at here? when you talk about reforms? i think that prisoners should be abolished as the whole. i think that there shouldn't even be existing, and that's the reason why these things are happening. there's not. they're not spaces for people to rehabilitate and access. the resources that they
4:36 pm
need, so i think that it is a few points that people hold, but i think at the end of the day, these are not safe, spacious at all. and she didn't even exist. well i appreciate you taking the time. thank you so much. we certainly hope that that meaningful changes come from all of these women who bravely stepped forward dacey korea, lopez from a central legal della ross based in oakland. appreciate your time. thank you. investigation is underway in colorado after train hit a vehicle, a police vehicle that was parked there on the tracks with the suspect inside as foxes . vicente arenas tells us a lawsuit has now been filed in connection to that collision. moments before a horrific crash . you can hear a train coming down these tracks in will county in officer runs and the train smashes into the patrol car, pushing it down the tracks. what led up to this started minutes

hurricane charley made landfall right on the western edge of florida, which is not common at all , but ended up killing 12 people in the united states and in the caribbean and $17 billion of damage. look at this monster . it extends out 500 miles and barrels now towards the western section of cuba. it was just upgraded. just a couple of our goes from a cat one. her again to now a cat to hurricane with winds up to 100 mph. it's wobbling along to the northwest at 13, so it's going to lose a little bit of intensity. once it passes over cuba. then it goes into the gulf of mexico, and they're the waters are in the high eighties and low nineties so hurricane needs that warm water to gather some strength and so mentum, and so while it will do it just wobbles along and it decides what track it wants to take. now this doesn't concern me too much, although it does. look like right now. landfall potentially could be
4:45 pm
about tampa bay. all the way to clearwater. what does concern me is the cone because it's so wide and so this entire region is going to feel the impact from this hurricane, beginning with tonight with some showers and thunderstorm activity and then the impact on landfall, potentially on wednesday, they're going to see the effects of this all the way into friday with perhaps a storm surge. anywhere from 4 to 10 ft. think about that 10 ft. and i'm not talking just along the coast side. this will make it into the inland areas as well. you see the leading edge of the precipitation. this is just an outer ring. the cloud cover associated with ian. it's still about 500 miles away from florida b now the city of san francisco. it looks like the avenues heading towards the bay and you see mount diablo in the background there with clear skies temperature wise 59 degrees in half moon bay, and that's pretty much good as it has been today. 60 in san
4:46 pm
francisco. so far about 63 has been the high and it's still in the mid eighties and livermore and pleasant in in dublin 74 degrees in santa rosa and in san jose, so we're working up to about a 5 degrees difference. and cooling compared to yesterday at this hour, and the reason is we had a really enhanced marine layer today about 1500 ft. deep that is going to stay put until we get this right here. this big, beautiful area of low pressure. what is going to do is scour out that marine layer during the day tomorrow and then also into our wednesday and it's going to feel down and just pull down some of that cooler air mass. so typically this time of the year we should be at 82 degrees in santa rosa. tomorrow's spot on i mean, this is going to be a beautiful for autumn day for our tuesday temperatures pretty much where they should be. for this time of the year. they will be cooler than today. tonight's overnight lows 50 degrees in santa rosa to 58 degrees in san jose, and tomorrow we will rebound from 64 to about 86 degrees. your extended forecast
4:47 pm
we hold steady on our wednesday the warmest day now looks like it's going to be potentially on friday, with pleasant conditions returning right here to the bay area for the weekend. alright roberta. thank you. president biden announced late today. new rules for airlines. this is a proposal for travel websites as well as their lunch to be more transparent about their pricing proposal would require that all fees be disclosed to airline travelers upfront because the biden administration believes that those fees are contributing to the rising cost for families for more. now, let's bring in travel expert angel castano's thank you so much for being here, so this would require that we know all of those. piece of front baggers cancelation seeding charges. i mean, how helpful do you think this might be? oh incredibly helpful. this is going to really help people really understand the true price of their ticket and it doesn't only affect airlines based in the us, but it really affects any airline that's touching down
4:48 pm
on us soil, so consumers who don't travel as regularly as as i do, for example, who travel once or twice a year will now be able to sort of calculating budget for all of those extra fees. all right. so do you think that this is going to increase the competition between the various airlines? that's that's the hope of the biden administration is that you have the airlines competing against each other. you see the true cost of that ticket here and starts to bring down the cost of air travel for all of us. do you see that happening? oh absolutely. because at the end of the day, you know, the airlines do make so much money from these fees in 2021. there were $700 million collected and change and cancelation fees and the top 14 airlines collected about $5.3 billion in baggage fees alone, so this is hopefully going to spur on not only that transparency, but that competition that is very much needed. okay so when do we think that we might see something like
4:49 pm
this and when we might be able to all benefit well, i unfortunately, don't think that it's going to be any time soon. so there's a 60 day public comment period and then, as federal rules usually take a little longer to get into place , you know we can see that process slowed down as the airlines start to make modifications to these rules as well. alright, we should point out here that that a group representing a number of the major airline carriers has sort of pushed back here and said, look what our systems right now for pricing online, we already are up. front and transparent about the government fees. the taxes that you're going to be charged when you buy that airline ticket. well what would you how would you describe the level of transparency for booking a flight on the major carriers in this country? you know, it really depends on the airline and the website that you use. but often the case is that you have to dig deep into the bowels of the website of a particular airline to know in
4:50 pm
advance how much it possibly could cost you to check a bag if you don't have elite status, or if you don't have an airline credit card, and really, it's the elite status or the credit cards at the moment that allow you to sort of bypass all of these fees, and it's ai wish itt more like europe, where you could actually pay in advance to purchase a baggage check. that way you knew right away how much you are spending but we'll have to see what becomes of this proposed rule. thank you so much angel appreciate your time today. thanks so much for having me. alright let's get a check now on today's closing numbers on wall street, and as you can see here another down day, the dow dropped 329 points. the nasdaq was down by 65, the s and p dipped 38 points again amid fears of a recession as we continue to fight that high inflation okay, coming up in just a few minutes on the ktvu
