bird. the chicago man that sparked a global fight. cta buses come and go at this garage around the clock. last thursday, one bus left here with a stranger behind the wheel. i'm mark suppelsa. >> i'm micah materre. our top story scene around the country on wgn america tonight, who took a bus for a joyride? tom negovan is looking into it. what is this guy doing? did he pick up passengers? >> reporter: yeah, he did. only after logging in, punching in a route, doing things essentially only a real driver should know to do. but this was not a real cta bus driver. here's a photograph of the man they are looking for. he appears to have been wearing
9:01 pm
a real cta uniform shirt at the time. possibly stolen from a friend who is actually a cta employee. the would be bus driver drove around for a few hours thursday night, picked up and dropped off a few passengers. then brought the bus back to the place where he got it. back to the 103rd street garage on the south side. when he did, he bumped into another bus, was spotted visually and on surveillance and fled on foot. >> he was familiar with how to do this how to log into the vehicle and move the vehicle. and taking it down the route. now, again, we just want to understand why they would have done something like this. it's still unacceptable and we have to know how to prevent this in the future. >> reporter: obviously the cta interested in speaking to this individual. cta saying to us that its security proceduring are getting tighter now. after the release of that
9:02 pm
photograph, they hope the public will step up and help them catch um with whoever it was that took their bus for a joyride. >> thank you very much. now the chicago tribune has found you, the taxpayer, footing the bill for millions in dollars in pension padding across the suburbs. to fatten retirement checks add up to you paying more. for example, the trib shows taxpayers paying half a million dollars more on the outgoing city manager alone. they're going on to an outgoing parks director. all of this and more adding up to some $13 million in the last two years alone for top level retirees and as much as $145 million over the last decade. more on the trib's investigation online and in friday's edition. mayor daley leaves tomorrow
9:03 pm
for china and south korea looking for people to put their money into infrastructure in chicago. >> we need money in america. and i don't care where it goes as long as we can get it. so i'm going there for the purpose of -- think the chinese do have money -- in the working relationship with the chinese government and leaders to invest in the city of chicago. i make no bones about that. i will take money around the world if we can reinvest it in the city of chicago and rebuild our city. that's what we're doing. >> the trip sponsored by the chamber of commerce and world business chicago will last through next friday. jesse jackson jr. isn't offering many deals with his meeting with rahm emanuel. they agreed whoever runs for mayor should conduct their campaign on a high moral
9:04 pm
ground. both are considering a run in what could be a crowded field. >> both talked about the need for civility in the race. they also talked about the fact the city's poor economic climate is something that really could send the contest back into a battle of racial epitaphs and that's something nobody wants to see. >> you might remember last week, jackson slammed emanuel and the president on cnn saying their stimulus has failed inner cities. the illinois commerce chairman getting closer to entering the race. manuel flores. candidates have to file nominating petitions with the valid signatures from more than 12,000 voters by november 22. chicago's community policing program.

caps was set to go after the reassign. that was until late this afternoon. dan ponce joins us with the changes now. >> reporter: as you know, chicago police were facing man power shortages. right now as many as 300 police officers are assigned to caps. mayor daley says that's too many. now caps director is trying to figure out the need of chicago police and keep the program strong. >> caps is extremely relevant. >> reporter: the program may lose as many as 200 chicago police officers. caps director ron holt insists it will remain valuable to people. he says if anything, caps will only become stronger. >> nothing will be diluted. no strategy will change. in fact, i think with this strategy moving forward, that
9:06 pm
the efforts will be more involved. >> reporter: for more than two decades, caps has been an important program for the city. volunteers work closely with police officers to keep an eye on the neighborhood and help monitor gang activity. but now it's possible a majority of those officers will be reassigned away from caps and back on the streets. the controversial move has many caps volunteers concerned about the paramese -- program's future. >> reporter: antibullying programs, and saturday sports camps for the children in the community. why would you reduce resources for a program that everyone agrees is working? >> reporter: vicki has been a caps volunteer for ten years and is hopeful the police department will reconsider the proposed shuffle. daley said today he would support the move. >> over the years the caps started as a program of community people and citizens.
9:07 pm
it got deeply involved in the police department. i think over 200 police officers or more were assigned to caps. over years, lieutenants and sergeants and patrolmen, all of a sudden it became a civilian thing and went to a police department. that was not the concept. >> reporter: so here's what's happening next. ron holt will be meeting with jody weis to figure out how many officers will be reassigned. there will be a small contingent of police to help operate the program. and to be clear, so far no changes have been made to caps. holt says nothing will happen for a few weeks. investigation into an atm scam zeroing in on a business in wheeling. the number of victims has expanded now to 200. they live in wheeling and buffalo grove. the withdrawals happened in california. whoever took out that money

9:14 pm
>> reporter: what's the solution? keeping everyone without of the lockerroom could mean the option. but women don't think that's the route to go. they want to see female reporters dress like professionals. >> thank you. whether a reporter is a woman or man, but quick locker romaic says important to meet deadlines. but maybe the lockerroom isn't the best for the interview. >> so we want to know what you think. should locker rooms be off limits to reporters? text yes or no to 97999 or go to she gained sympathy for a horrific attack. tonight the woman who claims someone attacked her with acid now telling a different story. plus unbelievable video, a mother teaching her child how to smoke marijuana. she recorded this video. and the pope makes his first trip to the uk. it's what he said before that

9:29 pm
half an inch and more of rain this morning. and blowing it out of here. yet, tonight we're bringing winds down from the north- northeast. bringing lake moisture in. we have a nice day on the way tomorrow. tomorrow will be riding up into the mid-70s. then the weekend gets interesting. a front goes through. and it could rain later saturday and saturday night and we could have the coolest in months on sunday and then be back to summer by tuesday next week. these are rains across the metro area. waukegan not for from .6-inch for but the big story tonight is the cool air riding northeast winds into the area. it's 60 at o'hare and midway. you see the highs and lows today, we had 70s many areas.
9:30 pm
even though it was officially 69 degrees at o'hare. here's the view from buffalo grove showing you the stratus cumulus clouds. they sprinkled on us today. that same line was hammering lorain, ohio today. and look at the rains in new york state that had come down with this storm. and the gusty winds that occurred. we got off lightly with this thing. you can see the wrapped up weather system right there. the next weather system is embedded within this front. and there's moisture flooding up from the gulf. not to rain all day saturday but as the day goes on, sun cloud mix could fill in with clouds and we could find ourselves with more rain later in the day. there's the rain that came down today and that tentacle that came through the northern suburbs. one of our viewers reported up to an inch of rain fell in a
9:31 pm
half hour's time. there is our big system. you can see there's a fair amount of cloud cover lingering to the west and the winds are coming down the lake. so that's why we're going to get ourselves perhaps some lake effect sprinkles. see this on the model. by 11:00 tonight this little tentacle of cloud cover coming down parallelling the winds, they continue until the northeast wind flow breaks down by morning. ought to be fairly calm. then the winds turn around to the south. but the day looks nice across the area. another view of temperatures aaround the region. even as warmth floods back through rapid city and denver, that's the air that we'll get into tomorrow and will last into the morning hours on saturday. to be overpowered by this colder air mass that comes southward and drapes itself across the northern tier of the u.s. pushes the warm air out of here
9:32 pm
as saturday goes on. we'll probably have the highs saturday morning and cool back to the 60s after that. 46 tonight in duluth. look how much of the country is cooler than 24 hours ago. so we're getting these air masses with a little more muscle to come into the region. they settle south, they take all the humidity such as that and push it away from us. but a part of that comes back up later saturday-saturday night. depending on the model you look at, you get from 1/3 of an inch to an inch late saturday night. the higher numbers may be overdone but an average of .7- inch of rain. the readings are coming down. 72% humidity. mold spores were high but the pollen moderate today. here are the new york city thunderstorms. and here are the new thundershowers gathering up to
9:33 pm
the north. they'll stay safely to the north of us tomorrow. but they'll be joining by this push of moisture and consolidate into a shower cluster and a severe weather outbreak in kansas and oklahoma. once again the next couple days, that's an area bombarded by hail and a dozen tornado reports yesterday. that will all take place in the next few days. it'll be the northern fringe of that system that will bring rain over the weekend. here's the forecast. tonight partly cloudy and cooler. winds will be easing and we'll go down to 55 inland. winds 6 miles per hour. tomorrow sunshine and mixed clouds, high temperature 70 tomorrow. tomorrow night partly cloudy, mild. a little cool front approaches towards morning and that might bring a brief shower into the picture. probably of that is not high.
9:34 pm
saturday, clouding over with scattered showers increasing in the afternoon. then a period of heavier rain at night. high temperature of 71 but falling back to the 60s because the winds go northeast in the afternoon. but a lot of folks write and say we've got outdoor plans, should i cancel them? the answer at this point is no. but do look if you have an afternoon or evening plan outside for the better chance of rain then. we'll come back and tell you about the weekend and the hurricanes in a bit. >> thank you. take a look at this. the 8-foot wall at the museum of. to show the astronauts birthday. they use a projector. the outdoor spectacle is going on now through september 26. >> quite the big screen. >> yes.
