the current labor contract, non-union workers can only start that training when bart goes on strike. tonight oakland police want you to take an a good look at these pictures. these are people responsible for vandalism during protests this week. police realize faces may not be seen but hope someone will recognize the clothes and come forward. in this picture, a protester is caught spray painting trayvon martin's name in the street, and then there's this. a guy in a bike talked to some people ot car. as the car drives away, the guy kicks the fender leaving a dent. this picture was snatched as he road away after kicking the car. after all the violence, leaders want to make it illegal for anyone to carry improvised weapons during protests. all you have to do is watch allen martin's report to find out why. >> i didn't lose consciousness. i just kind of went down on my knees and held my face.
i noticed i was bleeding like crazy. >> drew was in downtown oakland monday night, the third night of demonstrations in the acquittal of george zimmerman was unfolding. the 32-year-old was a waiter in flora. >> i'm sympathetic to people who believe something really strongly and feel it in their core enough to march and really try to let their voices be heard. >> but on that night, he and his coworkers decided to stand outside and form a barrier in front of the restaurant. they were concerned about troublemakers. >> we had had an incident, a bad incident on saturday night where they broke a bunch of windows so in a sense we were kind of trying to deter people from coming back and smashing anymore stuff. >> all of a sudden an angry crowd turned up and the atmosphere turned ugly. >> that's when i heard somebody banging on our windows, turned around, kind of pushed him off and said, "stop." that was the degree of our interaction. he turned and cracked me in the
head with a hammer. >> a pair of glasses he wore that night probably helped to diffuse the blow. he believes the guy who hit him was not connected to the peaceful protest, and he says oakland will survive. >> i hope that the rest of the world sees that along with the violence and protests that are going on here. >> he's actually a professional musician, the lead guitarist for midnight cinema. next week, the group launches its first album at a concert in san francisco. he hopes he'll be well enough to make it, even with a black eye. >> if anything, it'll add a little character to the show to have the guitar player all bruised up. >> allen martin, kpix 5. >> tonight marks one week since daphne webb went missing. her family and community got together for a prayer vigil on the corner of 79th and international boulevard in east oakland. this is the place where daphne's dad says a woman kidnapped her from his car a week ago.

receiving the kind of publicity usually reserved for rock star. >> it does surprise me rolling stone was do something like that. >> for shock value alone that's not a reason to put something up that actually cost human life to sell magazines. >> the magazine features an article on 19 tsaernev. the cover reads how a popular student was failed by his naem, fell into radical islam and became a monster. rolling stone says the point is to, quote, gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens. >> apparently pretty good reporting, but the cover is out of taste. >> but some say that is just rolling stone's style. >> i think it's definitely an edgey move on their behalf. they've been known to do edgy cover shots. >> among them this 1970 special report featuring charles manson on his cover. this time around major
distributors are declining to sell the issue. cvs, walgreens and rite aid won't stock it they say out of respect for victims. >> they deserve to have retcher cushions. >> the temporary boycotts likely won't hurt rolling stone. advertising experts say only about 5% of rolling stone's sells are in retale outlet. christin ayers. coming up, the bay area rebters who say all hell has broken loose in their building because of rowdy google interns. stranded at the state fair. and the license plate of the future that could be coming to california cars. it even pays your toll. how you can get into heaven faster with twitter. who knew the power of social media. hey, live look outside cloud cover, yes. not as much as last night. find out how that will impact your weekend forecast coming up.

plates of cars on the street and in driveways. some readers are mounted onto police cars; others are on bridges and buildings. now, police say this is a great tool to fight crime, but the aclu says the data is being stored with few privacy protections. and soon you could be seeing a new kind of california license plate. sharon chen shows us it's unlike any other plate out there. >> imagine your license plate no longer metal but a computer screen a little longer than an ipad. registration would be wireless. >> it's the hassle to go to the dmv because there's always traffic and everything. >> a state senate proposal would create a three-year pilot program to test up to 160,000 cars with electronic lie scenes mraetss produced by san francisco start-up smart plate. the dmv would save $20 million a year. it wouldn't have to mail renewal tags. supporters say the digital
license plate would look a whole lot like the current one plus have the ability to display amber alert and register fast track toles, but the electronic frontier foundation opposes the idea says it doesn't protect your location and personal information. >> law enforcement needs a warrant to be able to put a tracking device on your car. it's a possibility the way this program could be immremented, these smart plates could be that tracking device. >> a lobbyist for smart plates says the program sbt geared toward the average driver but for big companies with large vehicle fleets, but measure doesn't specify. we found drivers on both sides. >> i kind of like the idea actually. i'm a big proponent of fast track and anything that can speed up the day. >> the government is going to have personal information on people. that's not right. >> if smart plate had its way it would produce digital plates that ran advertisements. in san francisco, sharon chen, kpix 5.

ear plugs. >> it's unclear how many are here, but a facebook page called crescent village google interns had nearly 400 members. the daly mail got photos before the page was taken down. it shows them smiling in google t-shirts holding drinks, but after numerous complaints a note went out to all 2,000 residents reminding them to be quiet and considerte. >> i think it's obvious when they know each other there's going to be socializing that goes on. it's not too big of an idea for me. >> google interns have been in the media spotlight with the hollywood film the internship, and life is good. gourmet meals, laundry service and pay of up to $6,000 a month, every day google shuttles them in mass to and from the property. we saw them, but none wanted to talk. >> this might be the first time
they've been out of the house. so you send them out here, and they have all kinds of opportunity. it's wonderful so i don't know if they really knew any different so, you know, this is a learning experience. >> and the apartment complex released a written statement saying that if you're going to enjoy all their nice stuff that they have here then do so respectfully. google sent us a late e-mail saying that they have asked their interns also to be respectful of the community. ken. >> don't have to clean, don't have to cook, they have to party. it's their job. hay, kiet, what are the cops in san jose doing to -- are they responding to any of these noise complaints. >> so we asked them to compile all the noise complaints of this particular building. we're hearing this is where all the action is. they've gotten one noise complaint back in mae 31st. an officer knocked on the toor because of loud music. no answer then shortly after that the music was turned down.
surprisingly not a lot of police activity. >> all right. let's hope they keep it quiet. ki oh,t do in san jose. thank you. more than 20 people got stuck at the state fair this afternoon and had to be rescued. the monorail lost power. everyone was okay. the ride beyond the ride. >> exactly. >> yeah. >> extra ride. >> it's not fun enough to just do that. >> no. >> got to have fire trucks. much more exciting. >> not. all right. hey, we've got a warmup to talk about. back to the 90s for many of you away from the water coming up tomorrow. warmer in the city, as well. bay life looking excellent. we do have cloud cover near the bay and over the city peninsula but less cloud cover tomorrow. livermore had quite a temperature drop from 92 on saturday to 74 yesterday, but today 9 degrees warmer, and you will be back to the 90s tomorrow. mie ro climate forecast up, fremont morning clouds afternoon
sunshine your high tomorrow 78, little bit milder on friday approaching the 80-degree mark with more afternoon sunshine. low pressure, which was the catalyst for that stronger and thicker marine layer moves all the way inland to sacramento. that's gone building in from the east to the west. this will really warm up our inland spots away from the water into the 90s and limit that intrusion of marine air which means you'll get sunshine near the bay. low pressure will make a repeat performance and come back next week enhancing the on shore flow and dropping our temperatures, but the next several days will be warm. you'll be a couple degrees milder. inland sunny from start to finish, no more morning clouds with highs from you in the 90s. we will stay warm. if you like that, you're going to love the weekend forecast sunny and warm especially away from the water. average high is 87. san jose back to normal first time in a week your high tomorrow 84. morgan hill, gil roy 90s. 90s again for concord, pleasant hill, pittsburgh, fairfield, napa 85.

[ jeannie stonebarger ] i shop at safeway quite a bit. i walk around the produce department a few times,
ago at muirfield in scotland with . it's steeped in tradition. a rot of prestige for even being invited to this thing. >> still a good old boys' club in some areas of the country. the british open started an hour ago in scotland with oliver fisher out to the early lead. meanwhile an old controversy is getting new attention.
open since 1891, it's one of three courses in the british open rotation that does not allow women into their club. at today's press conference in scotland, british open leaders defended their man cave mentality. >> what's the difference between men only and white only. >> i think that's a ridiculous question if i may say so. there's a massive difference between racial discrimination and all of those things where sectors of society are downtrodden and treated very, very badly indeed, and to compare that with the men's golf club, i think is frankly absurd. >> just last year, augusta national admitted their first two men. one was rice for the approximately 25 all-male golf clubs are in the chicago area. burning tree near washington dc strictly prohibits women except in december to buy christmas gifts at the proshop. >> for their men. >> are you kidding me? the ladies golf club of toronto is the only one in north

kaepernick showed up in awards in los angeles. he ended uptaking home breakthrough athlete then drove away in jaguar sports car. hit by nava rro bowman in 2011 when the 49ers played the lions. today the lions released best who was still not medically clear to play football. i only have enough time for the play of the night. look at this. ten guys in a swimming pool need to get a life but they did make the hook. we will be right back. >> way more fun than marco polo. this is a bay bridge highlight from kpix 5. >> taking down the old bay bridge is almost as big a project as building the new one. >> they have great documentation about how this old structure was built in the 1930s, and they'll use that as sort of a road map
to undo what was done 75 years ago. >> first to go will be the frame wok that sits so close to the new span. >> this bay bridge highlight is sponsored by at&t u-verse. rethink possible. se, you couldn't just set up a tv in the basement. i mean, come on! nope. we could only watch tv in the rooms that had a tv outlet. yeah if we wanted to watch tv someplace else, we'd have to go to my aunt sally's. have you ever sat on a plastic covered couch?
