will study how they can strengthen suicide prevention efforts locally. this team will be in the bay area for about two weeks. they'll have several meetings with local leaders and doctors. this visit follows three months of research. more than 200 people came together tonight to remember thousands of japanese americans forced to live in internment camps during world war ii. on this day of remembrance, that san jose state also pledged not to repeat history. jimmy was just 19 years old when he and his family were forced to leave her san jose home and live in an internment camp in pomona. he remembers the day a presidential order required him to register at san jose state. >> coming to the gymnasium here to sign up, we had notice to come here. and that's when we received our number. a family number. and we go outside, didn't see as a person. >> reporter: from then he was known as 32420.
he spent the next four years in three different internment camps. while he was able to stay with his family, he says they were forced to abandon their farm and livelihood in south san jose and were no longer considered american citizens. tonight more than 200 people came together at san jose state to remember what jimmy and thousands of other japanese americans endured, and continue to beat the drum of change. some fear now more than 70 years later, it's the muslim community that is the target of discrimination. >> japanese americans have been a helping hand in combatting a lot of islamophobia. >> reporter: during the ceremony, the names of 11 internment camps were read. representing where more than 120,000 japanese americans were forced to live. the day of remembrance ended with people grabbing tea lights and walking to the gym for a candlelight vigil. the same gym where jimmy was forced to register before he was taken to an internment camp.
jimmy is now 93 years old. and while he says he is not bitter, he does have a strong message for the next generation. >> don't let it happen again. coming up next, supreme court justice antonin scalia died yesterday in texas. he just passed, but already there is a fight over who will take his seat. the reason some presidential candidates want president obama to hold off nominating a replacement. plus, tuition at cal going up and up. the high price people are paying to get a degree. and a view that you really haven't seen before. we have the viral video showing what the bay area looks like from a weather balloon. after bart revealed it uses phony cameras, we uncovered documents that led to a new admission. >> 70% of the cameras are just decoys. >> now they're taking action. >> they'll begin installing working cameras in the next few weeks. >> we investigate. we're following developing news
tonight.nvestators aretrying to figure out who put a bomb on the underside of we are following developing news out of albuquerque, new mexico tonight. investigators are trying to figure out who put a bomb on the underside of a rental car there. an avis budget rental worker spotted the bomb while checking the car. it had just recently been returned. police shut down the business, right next to the airport while they investigated. the case has been turned over to the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. the fbi looking into the matter
itself. the airport was not affected. tonight the body of supreme court justice antonin scalia is back home. take a look at this new video just into our newsroom. this is his body arriving at dulles in virginia tonight and was loaded there into a hearst. it's believed he died from natural causes. the unexpected death is reshaping the 2016 race for the white house. some view presidential candidates are now pushing to hold off a nomination altogether until the next president has been elected. nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the white house now with more on the president's plan to put forth a nomination. >> reporter: today this silent display of respect across washington. but no pause before the clash of politics. >> there is no way the senate should confirm anyone that barack obama tries to appoint in his last year in office to a lifetime appointment. >> reporter: an instant power struggle over a successor to justice scalia.
>> let me just make one point. barack obama is president of the united states until january 20th, 2017. >> good evening, everybody. >> reporter: from california, president obama made clear he will nominate a new justice, and expect the senate to consider his choice fairly. >> these are responsibilities that i take seriously, as should everyone. they're bigger than any one party. they are about our democracy. >> reporter: if the president gets to seat his third justice, that change would make the court more liberal. compounding the shock of scalia's sudden passing is the timing. a campaign year. >> we ought to make the 2016 election a referendum on the supreme court. >> reporter: republican candidate ted cruz had been a law clerk for chief justice rehnquist. now as a senator, he intends to block any obama nominee. >> we're advising that a lame duck president in an election year is not going to be able to tip the balance of the supreme court. >> reporter: democrats are
already calling out cruz. >> ted cruz holds the constitution when he walk-throughs the halls of congress. let him show me the clause that says the president's only president for three years. >> reporter: with fewer senate votes, democrats may have to take their fight for an obama court pick to the campaign trail as well. >> i just don't think it looks good that for very other overtly political reasons that the republicans would deny this president the right to exercise his constitutional responsibility, which is to appoint members to the supreme court. >> justice scalia's form colleagues on the court gave their praises. ruth bader ginsburg said, quote, we were best buddies and added that justice scalia had a rare talent to make even the most sober judge laugh. clarence thomas said it is hard to imagine the court without my friend. i will miss him beyond all measure. it leaves just eight justices now and the possibility of tie votes for the four.
new at 11:00, an mba or a law degree from cal coming at a hefty price for in-state students. tuition at berkeley school of law and the school of business has risen sharply over the last decade. here are the numbers. 2005, the annual price, about $24,000. now it's more than $52,000 a year for the law school and nearly $58,000 for the haas school of business. school officials say a cut in support by the state gave them no choice but to eliminate most of the price breaks for in-state students. bring your pets in at night. more and more people say their dogs and cats are being eaten by a mountain lion. that's according to "the san francisco chronicle" and the study by the department of fish and wildlife found more than 40 mountain lions had eaten dogs, cats or house pets. they detail that 107 mountain lions were killed last year legally with special permits, and their stomachs examined.
wildlife workers still want owners to keep their pets indoors and on a short leash when out on walks. they're meeting in brisbane about how to keep pets safe. one is later this month. the other in march. did you feel it? a small earthquake rattled the east bay. concord about 4:15. depth 10 miles. no reports of injuries or any damage. well, people are certainly loving the warm weather here in the bay area. but it's certainly changing things for the sierra. at the 5,000 foot elevation level, the snow there is melting. this of course is an unwelcome sight. just three weeks ago there was a very healthy snowpack there. further down this year at 4,000 feet you see white water rapids along the american river. a beautiful sight there. fulsome lake roughly 53% of capacity and speed restrictions have been lifted for boaters. new video above the clouds. this is video from a weather balloon that was launched over san francisco. about 11,000 feet you can see
this view here shows a lot more than just the city. you can see mt. diablo from the south bay from a bird's-eye perspective. what a beautiful area we live in here. the balloon was made by the company night crew. it has more than 6.5 million views on youtube. the company next project for the balloons, a flight around the northern lights and alaska. >> let's see what else we can see. >> isn't that amazing? it's so nice to see. a little bit of everything. a beautiful ocean, the bay, the mountains. >> you know who likes weather balloons more than you or i? >> mr. rob mayeda. >> yes. >> usually not with those types of cameras. that's great. a great geography lesson. we have clear skies you. still see the cities around the bay area. san francisco very interesting. been seeing the flag here showing a bit of an offshore breeze. instead of the sea breeze, which typically brings in the low clouds. 57 degrees right now. but surprisingly warm temperatures around tiburon
heading up towards santa rosa. 66 degrees after 11:00. this is the reason why we have some offshore winds, bringing more mild air aloft as it descends in elevation. the air begins to dry out and warm up. which you'll see a lot more of that during the day tomorrow. notice the wind direction offshore through the day tomorrow. that's going allow some of the coastal areas down towards santa cruz to make a run at the low 80s for tomorrow afternoon. now we have some high clouds. but that's about it. storm track still way off to the north. this is a complete reversal of fortune from what we had late january, where the jet stream was aimed in across southern california right now, this blocking pattern, which is set up, is picking up the rain and sending it towards the pacific northwest where they'll have flooding rains in western washington. around here, though, as this high strengths. and now you see the winds beginning to turn offshore. that's going bring the temperatures to the 70s and 80s inland. for the morning, hilltop locations may start out in the 60s. but most of the bay area 40s and 50s to start. and then as early as noon tomorrow. low to mid-70s.
and by the time we get towards mid afternoon, some of the temperatures records we could break. santa cruz expecting a high of 82 degrees tomorrow. oakland airport current record is about 73 tomorrow. expecting 78 degrees that too should break a record for monday. around the south bay tomorrow, upper 70s. close to 80 in the warmest spots. san francisco seeing temperatures in the low 70s. from the north bay to the tri-valley, highs in the mid- to upper 70s. we'll see another day we could break some records. that will be tuesday. we'll see a few more clouds late afternoon. notice the big change wednesday into thursday. a big drop in temperatures. but the rain coming back into the picture for wednesday and thursday. packing a pretty good punch. it's going to displace that ridge of high pressure. and we'll see the rain coming in. especially for the second half of the day, a quarter inch to 3/4 inch of rain. you see how the models have brought up the rainfall projections now. maybe close to a half an inch given how dry it's been so far this month that would be great news. and perhaps about a foot of snow in the sierra. as the system moves on out,
we'll see showers in the thursday, friday maybe a slight chance of showers for the north bay. as we move towards next weekend, the high should hold off most of the rain towards friday. saturday and sunday temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. so a potential for some record-breaking temperatures next couple of days. midweek storm on the way. and then we'll have to see if we're going to get a pattern change out of this very dry pattern, which looks like it could hold up through the end of the month. back to a more energetic and rainy pattern for california as we move into march. we certainly hope that's the case as we saw that video of the snow melt taking place in the sierra. the good news is by the middle part of the week we should add more fresh snow to the high country. and hopefully more than a little storm on the way, but a series of storms moving into the next month. back to you. >> go for it. >> absolutely. coming up, a warning from the irs. how to make sure scammers don't file your tax return for you. >> hard to believe that's coming up. flowers a big part of
valentine's day. they were quite a few couples at san francisco's tulipmania, things covered in tulips. we'll show you. thank you for joining us. i'm sam brock. >> and i'm laura garcia-cannon. the rain continues to follow. the roads are very slick. >> northbound 280. we do have reports of an overturned vehicle blocking one lane. it sounds like your right lane. and really jamming up. >> thank you very much.
i now pronounce you husband and wife. congratulations. >> thank you. >> well, here is an easy way to remember your anniversary. get hitched on valentine's day. that's exactly what dozens of couples in the peninsula did. they showed up in droves at the san mateo county clerks office today to get their marriage licenses and then get married on valentine's day. many like this couple bringing an entire entourage to witness the happy day. congrats to all the happy newlyweds. and they won't forget. >> from exciting things to romantic things to things that aren't so romantic. tax season.
we're talking about that already. and an alert from the irs they want you to hear. look out for fraud. the agency says it is dealing with an onslaught of fraudulent tax returns. now this is the second year in a row that this is happening. finance insiders say the trouble can be traced back to the data security breaches that happened last year, 2015. millions of social security numbers were stolen by identity thieves who used numbers to file a fake return so they could secure your tax return. >> unfortunately for consumers, tax return fraud is not going to go away any time soon. in most cases, we're hearing that they're e-filing, and they're just doing this in bulk. >> now the irs is catching more fraud this year and also more security measures are now in place to detect the real return versus a fake one. well, if you do have plans on camping in yosemite this summer, make sure to set your alarm for 7:00 in the morning tomorrow. that's when a very brief window will open for campground reservations for the most popular weeks between mid-june
to mid-july. last year more than four million people visited yosemite. this year is the 100th anniversary of the national park service. people who miss their chance tomorrow will get two more tries later on this year. next time you go to the grocery store, you can pick up some broccoli, some milk, and maybe a at the too. whole foods has a new plan to attract millennial shoppers. the store would be called 365. they would have produce as well as shops inside like a tattoo parlor. the idea is offer lower prices along with unique prices that tie in third party business. another idea, maybe a record shop. it might sound kind of crazy, maybe silly. but the struggling grocery chain has a lot to gain, specifically the millennials with purchasing power across the u.s. no date as to when the stores might open on all that activity at whole foods. >> essentially records becoming hip again. they're back. they're back. >> we're going retro. and it was years ago tattoos were hip too. now they're back.
celebrating valentine's day with hundreds of pillows. not like that, though. >> right. an annual tradition continued in san francisco tonight. take a look here as hundreds of people gathered for this pillow fight in justin herman plaza. video showed a whole lot of people there and their pillows and feathers. now this last photo was captioned with the words "best valentine's day ever." >> cool. >> fun. coming up, our investigation into body cameras. >> this video showing what happened right after a suspect was tased. but it did not show what led up to the confrontation. we investigate the reason why bay area police cameras are not always rolling when officers use force.
the new normal at police agencies across the country. >> but how often are the cameras actually turned on and recording? we investigate which local departments track this information and which don't. here is vicky nguyen. >> hang on. no, no, no. sir! >> we have a 417 just occurred. we got one detained. >> rolling on the ground. >> reporter: you're watching cell phone video recorded by a mountain view police officer during the arrest of doug huff. >> sir! >> stop resisting. >> i'm not resisting. >> reporter: huff shared this video with us admitting it doesn't show him at his best. but he says what this officer's video also doesn't show, the moment police tased him in the chest and neck. >> he never moved his hands. >> reporter: huff says he and his wife were waiting at a doctor's appointment when they got into an argument with another patient. >> he turned his his phone off and said he should learn to
[ bleep ] his own business. >> reporter: huff says he pulled out his pocket knife. that's when office staff called 911. >> he has the knife? what kind of knife is it? >> a pocket knife. >> reporter: what happened next is in dispute. officers say huff ran out of the building and continued to run after they told him to of the. they say huff reached toward his waistline where an officer saw a knife clip. that officer tased him. >> that's when a fourth officer ran up and just immediately tased me. >> reporter: huff was arrested for charges including brandishing a weapon and resisting arrest to which he played pled no contest. but he wants to know why there is no video of what happened before being tased. >> my husband's head was going straight into the curb. >> reporter: mountainview police declined to speak on camera because huff has filed a complaint against the department. but said none of the four officers on scene had a body camera because the incident took place during the voluntary phase of the body cam program.
>> this is my tax dollars at work. >> reporter: it's encounters like this where the police and civilian accounts conflict that are prompting a nationwide push for cops and cameras. >> i think the trend, frankly, is going to be towards greater and greater openness. >> reporter: chris just took the top cop job in tucson but served as chief of the richmond pd for the past decade. he is widely credited with building trust between police and community members. do you think all police departments oshould move in the direction of getting body cameras? >> i do. not only should they do it. but i think the public is going to expect that that they do it. >> reporter: magnus oversaw the implementation of richmond's body camera policy. >> it feels like a real gun. >> reporter: and training. for its 188 officers last year. >> just so you know, we have body camera incident being reported. >> reporter: officers go through drills like this every three months to keep their skills sharp, skills that now include turning on their cameras at the beginning of any call for
service. >> keep your hands right where i can see them. don't move. don't move. >> reporter: data from richmond pd showed in the first two months officers were equipped with cameras, 28 use of force incidents. anything from an officer displaying a taser to firing a weapon. but none of the incidents was reported. over time the numbers steadily improved to 48% in the first six months, and most recently 92% of use of force incidents were caught on camera. >> you're expected to have the camera on. >> reporter: magnus says there are times officers can turn off their cameras, including when they're dealing with victims of sex assault or juveniles, but repeatedly not rolling during a use of force will result in discipline. >> there have to be consequences if you don't turn on your body camera. and we have in fact disciplined some folks for that. >> reporter: the investigative unit requested similar data from all bay area police departments with body cams. we found most track when officers are recording during use of force incidents. but here at oakland pd, there is
no way to know how often the cameras are turned on, recording or broken during use of force incidents. even though the department has had more body cameras and for longer than almost any other bay area department. the pilot program started in 2010 and became official in 2013. a spokesperson for opd says the association doesn't have a tracking mechanism to show when cameras are rolling. we requested multiple rue interviews with the chief to ask why, but were told he could not accommodate our request. >> you can't have some officers turning on their cameras sometimes and some officers turning cameras on other times. >> reporter: seth morris is a deputy public defender in alameda county. his office represents 40,000 people a year. why do you think it's so important to have that data? >> because this the use of force you have a police officer that is taking one of the weapons that they're armed with and deciding to deploy it against the civilian. >> what's wrong? >> reporter: and in those moments, that's when the community is most concerned about an officer acting correctly. >> there also was a real learning curve for officers
turning on the camera. >> it seems like a very simple thing. and it's not difficult to do. it's just do you remember to do it under high stress. >> reporter: morris says not only is it troubling if the department doesn't track whether its officers are recording during use of force incidents -- >> drop the gun, drop the gun! >> reporter: he is also seeing another change at opd. >> they'll say to the other officer, i think we need to have an administrative conversation. >> reporter: is that code for turn off your body camera, we'll talk about this later? >> it is. it is. it's an unwritten code. >> reporter: opd says its policy allows officers to turn off the cameras when they're talking administrative, tactical or law enforcement sensitive information. >> reporter: what do you think of that? >> i think it's bs, to be honest. there should be ultimate transparency. my question to the chief when i spoke to him most recently, what is there to hide? >> reporter: as for doug huff, a judge ultimately sentenced him to one day in county jail and anger management classes. some people might say you were taunting the officers.
>> i was more overcome just with the situation. >> reporter: but he says he wishes the officers were wearing body cameras and rolling from the start. >> i thought i had the right to remain silent to capture the good, bad and ultimately as get as close to the truth as possible for both sides. >> cameras might be a starting point. >> reporter: that was viky nguyen reporting. body cameras became mandatory for mountainview police officers in december. since that time there have been siskiyous of force incidents and 33% were caught on camera. as for other local departments, we have the data at nbcbayarea.com. >> now if you have a tip for our investigative unit, please give us a call. that number is 1-88-996-tips. you can give us a call to the firstname.lastname@example.org. coming up next, full coverage of the 2016 nba all-star game, including a full report from toronto. plus, it's one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. today's final round at pebble

if you want a good spot, get there about an hour or two or four early. >> leave now. >> or 6:00. well, the weather was just absolutely beautiful today. valentine's day, a good day to stay inside with someone special, as snow and bitter cold gripped much of the country. >> we lucked out. in the northeast a snowstorm rolled. in dan scheinman has more. >> reporter: it was snowy valentine's day in indiana. it was a huge pileup near indianapolis, at least ten people were taken to hospitals with injuries. >> we know that a squall came through here and the visibility was almost zero. and it just turned icy very quickly. so it is what it is. we deal with this. but in 32 years this is probably one of the worst crashes that i've ever seen. >> reporter: it was the coldest valentine's day on record in the northeast. and frigid temperatures caused problems for firefighters in new
jersey. >> they lost water in the beginning. due to one of the lines freezing. that's typical when you have this kind of weather. >> reporter: in new york the icy air almost scared off a tourist from london. >> we got off the plane yesterday. and i nearly run back into the airport. i've never cold like that ever. >> reporter: the temperature kept many people at home in philadelphia. but not everyone. the revellers turned out for a chinese new year's celebration. one woman said it wasn't so bad. >> i'm not actually that cold. i lived in chicago for a while. so this -- this is cool. >> reporter: there is good news. forecasters predict a warm-up later in the week. dan scheinman, nbc news. >> let's check with rob mayeda. you would feel better about how we're doing out here. >> look at this. right now in boston. 12 in new york city that is where the arctic plunge continues. across the congratulation in the northeast, but out west, it's a
different story. we've got 50s right now. it feels relatively warm compared to those temperatures. upper 50s and low 60s outside. very interesting tonight. the areas in orange on the map here out towards contra costa and napa and solano counties. that's mid 60-degree temperatures outside right now, which is close to the average high this time of year. a 24-hour temperature change. starting to show 5 to 10 degrees of warming approaching midnight. and it has everything to do with the winds now that are offshore. and they will strengthen as we head towards tomorrow morning. might get a little breezy from the hilltops of the north by and east bay. but the wind direction will take the air, force it down to sea level, warm it up and dry it out. and our temperatures are going to climb quickly. in fact, they'll start the day pretty mild with mostly 40s and 50s. 60s in on the hill tops. around 12:00, already starting to see some 70s. so we could be breaking records tomorrow. santa cruz and i think oakland airport, a couple of sights that will have a chance of doing that. temperatures in the upper 70s to
near 80 degrees. some of the warmest spots around the south bay. san francisco low to mid-70s possible. average highs closer to 60 degrees. you can see around the north bay and tri-valley, mid to upper 70s. and the pattern should hold on probably for another day. tuesday looks like more 70s. and for the south bay, we could see temperatures close to 80 for one more day. and then things beginning to change wednesday and thursday. this is great news. this is normally one of the wetter months of the year. so far things in the middle, that's what we've done so far. nearly two weeks of dry weather. the driest february for san jose going back to 1893. nowhere near the el nino numbers we had in 1998. but we should see some changes to the numbers in the middle as the system comes in for wednesday. and it will be wednesday afternoon. probably through thursday morning, about a quarter inch to 3/4 of an inch of rain for the bay area. this will be a good-looking little system that comes through wednesday into thursday for the sierra, it looks like we'll get at least a foot of snow coming down for thursday. could have some winter weather
advisories for the second half of the week. and by the end of the week, unfortunately looks like high pressure is going to be just strong enough to take the rain off to the north bay and a little further north as we move into next weekend. so we've got a couple of days of potential record breaking temperatures. wednesday, thursday storm. a few north bay showers. and saturday and into sunday, not as warm as this weekend. but 60s, close to 70 as we head towards next saturday and sunday. so let's hope we can get all we can out of that wednesday-thursday system. it may be the only major system we see over the next seven days. back to you. >> we really need it. let's hope it brings us some rain for sure. thanks, rob. >> coming up next -- >> the gift of a lifetime, 26 lifetimes to be exact. we'll show you this huge showing of generosity for this class of kindergartners. a golden opportunity is waiting

santa cruz tomorrow. look at the forecast. 82. that would tie a record. oakland airport, the record to beat there is only 73. 78 looks like we'll break the record there. so tomorrow and tuesday, warmest days of the week. and then the rain does come back with sierra snow wednesday into thursday. but nice for outdoor plans tomorrow. >> all right. looks good. >> thank you, rob. thank you for joining us tonight. hope you have a great week. >> have a wonderful week ahead. leap valentine's day, everyone. good night. s special, "bay area proud."
