we have seen violent from test in oakland the last few weeks but none like this one tonight. protesters were out the destroy whatever they could as christin ayers shows us. >> reporter: there was very little peaceful about this protest. some marchers were hostile from the beginning. one protester lunged for our camera moments after the march began. when the group blocked an intersection near city hall tonight, this driver lashed out. >> they come from other areas and cause trouble. that is what is frustrating. some people come to do peaceful protests. he is not even from this area. >> reporter: within an hour, marchers were taking a detour through jack london square using rocks and skateboards to bash in 30 windows. some stealing bottles of
liquor. >> the protests became violent. you can see they ripped the ornaments and the lights off of the christmas tree here in jack london square. >> reporter: decorative balls left strewn on the ground. the oakland police chief and a few helpers cleaned up. >> there are few officers out to deal with this? >> we are monitoring the crowd. >> reporter: we learned less than 40 oakland officers are on hand to deal with the demonstration despite the fact the protests have been in the works for days. >> we thought we had enough for tonight. >> reporter: tonight, officers took a hands off approach. trailing the crowd even as they caused havoc. christin ayers, kpix5. #notimeoff is trended on twitter. if it was to make police mobilize on christmas, it is quite successful.
they are saying shutting down businesses sand freeways is one thing. destroys christmas trees is ludicrous. get it together. a sign honoring four oakland police officers is back where it belongs tonight. it is along eastbound 580 near the keller avenue bridge. the officers were killed in 2009 by a convicted phelonion parole. last week, vandals ripped it down and put a red x on it. investigators think it is all part of the recent antipolice protests. as bob orr shows us, they are going to great lengths to show how the officers handle themselves. >> reporter: on a neighborhood street in palo alto, officer zach pulls over a driver who ran a stop sign. this is the view recorded by his dash camera. but the rest of the video system recorded much more.
in palo alto, every police officer has multiple cameras to proside a panoramic view. >> we have five cameras in every officer's patrol car that captures a 273-degree field of view around the car. >> this monitors your cameras. you can isolate the one you want to see? >> correct,. >> reporter: one camera points forward. two side cameras cover blind spots. a prisoner camera watches the backseat and there is the rear camera which recorded this collision in august. the system captures up to 40 hours of video which makes it possible for officers to go back in time. you literally might drive past something you don't see and go back and say that was important. >> absolutely. the primary purpose is nor us to preserve evidence we can use in court later. >> reporter: but the video is also about keeping tabs open how the officers interact with
the public. >> accountability is a big part of it. this holds everybody accountable. >> we hire people for character and we want them to treat people with dignity and respect. and this should be kind of secondary to everything else. it is just another tool that we have that shows we doing the right thing. >> reporter: burns has already seen one effect. a drop in complaints against officers. with five cameras watching, chances are, the real story is being recorded. >> we get a lot of complaints from neighbors. >> reporter: as for the driver he pulled over, he got him a warning. bob orr, cbs news. you feeling the chill tonight? get ready for a frigid friday. we spotted people all bundled up in san francisco. go to paul and find out how cold it is going to get. >> 33 degrees in livermore tonight. it has been more than ten months, 323 days since we have been that cold. you have to go back to february 5 the last time that we hit 33
degrees in livermore. it is one day late, but jack frost may be nipping at your nose away from the water. here is the reason why. the source of air has changed. gone is the air coming from the pacific ocean that brought us all the rainfall. now the air is coming from canada. more lows in the 30s tonight. wake up tomorrow morning 39 in novato. fremont, 37. pleasanton, 34. not the coldest weather we will see. there is a stronger push of ark t air coming. details on that coming in about ten minutes. >> thanks paul. tonight, the interview has become the hottest movie around. as andria borba tells us, it certainly has nothing to do with whether it is good or bad. >> your line is right there. thank you very much. >> reporter: christmas day movie going took a slightly serious turn at the elmwood theater in berkeley that came with a side of not popcorn but
security. and movie goers found themselves out in the cold. every showing was sold out. some came for the comedy, others for free speech. >> i thought it was a good movie. we went for the principle and i wasn't expecting much. >> it had social commentary and was hilarious. >> reporter: the report was that it was ... >> what? >> reporter: folks in berkeley had more glowing praise. >> maybe a little tarantinoish. >> reporter: dennis rodman's bff would not be too happy with the film. >> i would love to laugh at kim jong un's expense. >> if i had no sense of humor, i would be insulted but any publicity is good publicity for him right now so just roll with it and laugh. >> reporter: now the interview is only released to about 300 theaters nationwide. but a lot of people have been wanting to come out and see it
at the theater. they had to change their policy. it used to be cash only. now they are accepting credit cards because of the influx of people who want to see the film. in berkeley, andria borba, kpix5. >> and seth rogan made a special appearance at a midnight showing at a los angeles theater with a beer in hand. >> thank you. if it wasn't for theaters like this and people like you guys, this literally would not be [bleep] happening now. >> the crowd gave rogan and director evan goldburg a huge ovation. in hawaii, reporters caught up to a vacationing president obama. >> have you watched the interview? >> merry christmas to everybody. >> well for now, it appears the president more content with getting in a round of golf. to find out where to watch the interview this theaters, or download it at home, head to kpix.com. sony can't get off the naughty list of hacker groups.

>> firefighters managed to keep the fire from destroying other homes though one had some damage. the family who lives at the burned out home was out of town. they are grateful firefighters rescue their cats. usually, when you pull someone over for drunk driving, you find them behind the wheel, this time, the drunk person was in the trunk of the car. he went to the hospital and the driver went to jail. >> it used to be elf on the shelf. now it is drunk in the trunk? [ laughter ] he delivered a moving speech to the masses but someone else stole the show at the vatican today. tonight, the half naked protester that interrupted the pope's christmas celebration. >> when it got to around seven years old, i was like, let's do this. >> what does it take to go from tiny dancer to big time ballerina? one of the stars of san francisco's nutcracker lets us in on her secret to success. plus ...

[ speaking spanish ] >> tens of thousands of people packed saint peter's square to hear the pontiff pray for children and voice anguish for those killed at a pakistani school. all of a sudden a half naked woman grabbed the baby jesus from a nativity scene and yelled god is a woman before police led her away. so what did you get for
