tv   KTVU FOX 2 News at 4  FOX  May 20, 2022 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
mean, i feel like they redeemed themselves from last year. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth yep, tiptop is just two hours from now and is expected to be another thrilling game. welcome everyone to the four this afternoon heather holmes alex savage. the warriors, of course, delivered a blowout win in game one of this series on wednesday. but you know, the dallas mavericks will be coming back strong in game two for a preview of tonight's matchup. let's get to joe fonzi, who's joining us now live from chase center in san francisco. hey, joe. good afternoon, you guys, both teams very much know what's at stake here tonight. the warriors would love to go up to nothing taken early kind of stranglehold on the series, and it's almost survival mode for the mavericks, who don't want to go down to do nothing as they had home in the series returns to their home court for third game in the series and the fourth game of the series. actually, games three and four. the one thing that the mavericks know is coming off of that win
4:01 pm
over phoenix on sunday. they came in here on wednesday and pretty much got out physical by the warriors. the warriors took on their leading scorer, luke adachi, and basically we're playing great defense on him, largely through the efforts of andrew wiggins, and then other switches from time to time. don t child well under his seasonal averages. he scored just 20 points in that game, and i think it's fair to say that the mavericks know that they have to come out and be physical, just as the warriors saw in that game two of the memphis series when gary payton the second was knocked down, we haven't seen him come back yet. draymond green had his nose bloodied his i bloody and came back after stitches. the other thing that the warriors did so well in game one. the thing about these games is no to look the same. you rarely see teams played back to backs against each other. you certainly never say them. see them play 34 as many as seven times against the same team as they do in the playoffs. and what the warriors know is they were given that kind of mid range jump shot. against the mavericks in game one, and they succeeded in that because the
4:02 pm
magnitude kind of try to take away the three point shot and the slashes to the rim in terms of layups, so it remains to be seen exactly what strategies will be employed tonight, but both teams know that it will be undoubtedly more physical than it was in game one. they were physical. they were the aggressors dictated everything. and when that happens, you you're going to win. for whatever reason we tiptoe into series, and so that game is behind us. and now we gotta get ready for game two. understanding that you know it's hard to win on the road, but we've got to put ourselves in a position to do that at some point in the series, you know. and it's always been this way for me as a as a player or coach. it's just after a couple of games. it just starts to get testy because both both sides wanted so badly and nothing personal. it's just competition. well as you watch the dallas mavericks warm up on their end of the floor here. i think that point was made very well by by both coaches. and that is the
4:03 pm
fact that you know you will see a team sometimes on a back to back during the regular season. you never see a team three times in a row, and certainly not for or as many times as seven. and i think why you can say that. these playoff games take on such different. every time. and clinch game six. that's just the nature of playoff basketball. so anybody who thinks oh boy, the warriors had a pretty easy goal of things in game one. they should have this series under control. think again because you're going to see an entirely different dallas mavericks team. tonight you're going to see a team with an entire different to try to counter what the warriors did well, guys. yep, no doubt about it. all right, joe, have a lot of fun at the game tonight and go warriors. well, it's going to be packed house for game two with chase center and outside at thrive city in san francisco. about $200 will get you a ticket inside the arena for the game. the unofficial watch party, though at thrive.
4:04 pm
city outside is free for everyone. bay area rapper, community organizer and longtime warriors fan, mister fab, says connecting fans to the team. through that free open space is something special. we do have an expensive ticket. i think we have one of the highest tickets in the in the n b. a, um so to give it give the fans the true core fans a chance to even feel the excitement, building energy of being like at a basketball game. um, that's dope. official thrive. citiwatch parties only happened during away games. the first one for the conference finals will be this sunday night. it's free, but fans do need to r s v p through the warriors website. okay, so we are expecting traffic to be a little heavier than usual as people head into san francisco not only for the warriors game but also for a san francisco giants game. obviously that's happening there at the ball park just a few blocks away from chase center here we have right now skybox flying high above the
4:05 pm
city, and you can see that traffic is already quite congested again. officials are urging people if you plan to go to either. the warrior. game. or the giants to take mass transit , but obviously this is a friday afternoon commute combined with those two big sporting events, so it is going to be a little heavier than normal. and boy, you can see things really already backing up as people approach the bay bridge and head into san francisco. cruz this afternoon have contained a fast moving brush fire in the east bay that burned very close to some businesses. today this fire started about noon near highway four in the area of willow pass and devora roads. this is at the former concord naval weapons station. contra costa county fire says nearby businesses were evacuated for a time, firefighters still were able to keep the wind driven flames away from those buildings in the end of fire, burned about 20 acres and was fully contained about 1 45 this afternoon. no one was hurt here and the cost of that fire is being investigated.
4:06 pm
obviously fire concerns really heightened by what we're seeing in the weather department. rosemary high winds. it's bone dry, and it's going to be that way over the next couple of days. and when you have these types of conditions any time a fire starts. of course, there's huge concern, and that's what happened today. thankfully firefighters got that under control very quickly. the red flag warning continues. at this hour. there was a wind advisory for parts of the bay area allowed to expire at two o'clock , but take a look at some of these numbers, relative humidity in and around the concord area, although the winds have come down considerably in many spots still blowing over mountie avalon relative humidity anywhere from 14 to 23% in that area if we shift to the oakland hills relative humidity at about 25% into the north bay, though, where areas over sonoma county down to about 10% so critically dry and the breeze continues. now we are looking at improving weather as we get into the evening hours. here's a look over the red flag warning remains in place until eight o'clock this evening. you can see it's pretty much for the
4:07 pm
sacramento as well as the san joaquin valley. but if i'm moving closer, it does include a stretch of solano county, including areas like valeo banished to off towards cordelia and then into fairfield. better details on the improving conditions and what you can expect for your weekend coming up in just a little bit. all right. thank you. rosemary firefighters and police have spent several hours today at the scene of a fire at a condo complex and fremont's warm springs neighborhood now that fire burned through the attic of at least one unit there. at one point smoke was pouring from the building complex was evacuated, but police have been negotiating with a man who refused to leave . he barricaded himself inside a union and claims to be armed. negotiators have been in communication with that man and even brought him food. the food that he asked for. the fire started just after nine o'clock this morning there at that complex on when fema common just off of highway 2 62. as i mentioned, at least one unit was damaged before the fire was extinguished. no injuries have been reported. two men are dead
4:08 pm
after an assault and then a shooting by san francisco police last night, officers were called out to mariposa and owen streets for an aggravated assault in progress. just before eight o'clock last night. there were two men there, and we know that at least one officer fired their weapons. one of those men was pronounced dead at the scene. the other died at the hospital, but it's still unclear what each man died from whether it's related to the initial assault call or the police shooting. police say they're still trying to figure that out. officers were equipped with body worn cameras, as always, if anyone does have a surveillance cameras in the area that may have captured the incident, we do ask that they contact the police department. because that footage can be instrumental in helping us to identify what happened before and after officers arrived on scene. this case is being investigated by the san francisco district attorney's office, as well as the police departments, investigative

services division internal affairs, department of police, accountability and the medical examiner. the police department says it's committed to transparency and accountability and will hold a town hall meeting about this case within 10 days. the archbishop of san francisco, announced today that he is barring house speaker nancy pelosi from taking holy communion due to her support for abortion rights. archbishop salvatore quarter leonie released a letter today. and ended, he says, if pelosi publicly repudiates her advocacy for abortion, she could be admitted to receive the sacrament. the speaker who is a practicing catholic met with pope francis privately last year . at that time, the vatican did not say if the topic of abortion was discussed. but the pope has said that he sees communion as a gift and not a prize for the perfect we have reached out to the speaker for comment. a federal ruled today that the pandemic border policy known as title 42 must stay in place. for
4:10 pm

jose residents living near train tracks had to put up with the loud horns that blared all throughout the night. but not anymore. a railroad quiet zone is now officially in effect. ktvu fax to reporter mark sayer joining us now live from the japantown neighborhood of san jose, with the quiet details mark alex. this all started back in late 2018. and that is when union pacific change some of the routes and timing on its trains . now under federal law, railroad engineers are required to sound their horns that pedestrian and roadway crossings. and that is when that complaints began. this is phone video from san jose resident chris wemp, who lives near the union pacific tracks. he says the all night train horns could not be more disruptive. so you wake up in a start wondering is a fire alarm going off in emergency, and it's kind of shocking here. in japan town had
4:14 pm
a news conference, city leaders announced. the federal railway administration, which oversees the nation's railroads and tracks has signed off on its plans for a quiet zone. that means between 10 p.m. and seven a.m. there will be no more routine horns at street crossings. in this case, we had thousands of residents who are disturbed. in their sleep every single night because of 19 operations of union pacific because of a change of routing. the quiet zone covers 14 intersections over a 1.8 mile stretch of tracks from montgomery street near highway 87 in the west, through 10th and horning streets to the north. there's been times when i've had say, eight o'clock meeting and i've been woken up at two am 3:30 a.m. maybe four a.m. and then exhausted the next morning and needing to function in order for federal regulators to sign off on rail. quiet zone cities have to meet strict conditions at every single pedestrian and vehicle crossing, for example, here at seventh and jackson the city actually had to change the
4:15 pm
entire traffic pattern. 23 state network, uh, west of the mississippi union pacific, says it realizes that train horns can be disruptive, but unless approved safety measures such as gate arms and signage are in place, it's engineers are required to sound them so we can just change schedules. to accommodate local communities, and the quiet zone is a solution . at least a partial question in this case is a solution that will help uh, neighbors sleep better at night. many of the initial improvements paid for by the city where enough to qualify only for the nighttime quiet zone, but the goal is to keep the horns quiet. 24 hours a day and another $8 million in funding from the state should help make that a reality. this is good news. i think this partial question has been a great milestone because it's helped us really get the ball rolling on our ultimate clean legal wishes. get the 24 hour plates and built now, even though all these new safety measures are now in place the train engineers are legally allowed to roll through here
4:16 pm
without sounding their horns. that does not mean that san jose residents in these residential areas are never going to hear another train horn. union pacific says that it it's engineers are always monitoring the tracks as they roll through here. if they see something on the track, a person a car even it's three o'clock in the morning. they're still going to sound their train horns, but at least it will no longer be a regular occurrence. reporting live in the japantown neighborhood of san jose and mark sayer, ktvu. fox two news. nice to hear that folks in that neighborhood are going to get some relief from those blaring horns, mark. thank indeed. yeah that that would be tough to try to sleep through. an investigation is underway to determine what killed a whale in the san francisco bay. the adult gray whale washed up yesterday on brooks island. your point, potrero enrichment. now the marine, the marine mammal center , says that the same will was guided out of a channel near alabama to just back in april because it was a hazard for ferryboats. marine pile just will conduct an a cropsey to find figure out if it was hit by

4:25 pm
democratic attorney general rob bonta appointed to the office last year. his challengers include sacramento county district attorney anne marie schubert, who is running as an independent. former assistant u. s attorney, nathan hochman, a republican who was endorsed by his party and another republican , los angeles based attorney, eric early, joining us now from or is alex michaelson, host of the issue is who recently sat down with eric early, so why does he think he's the right person for the job? well alex. this is one of the closest and most important races, especially with the governor's race, not taught to be all that close. crime of course, is issue number one in this race. eric early is by far the most conservative of the candidates that are running . he's a proud trump supporter, and he has a very different view on how to deal with crime. here's some of what he told me a little earlier today. i call rob bonta criminal lover rob bonta is a clone of george gascon.
4:26 pm
okay they have created what i call in california criminals paradise. i will do everything possible to lock up the prison cells again. i will do everything possible to set cash bail again. i will do everything possible to repeat this repeal this crazy law. proposition 47 let you steal up to 9 50 had a shot multiple times a day, by the way, and nothing happens to you and i will i will support loudly and all the time our brave men and women of law. enforcement, you know. in the state. we have to let them know again that crime does not pay. so eric early is not only an attorney but also a radio talk show host, and you could see that he's pretty dramatic in his presentation. it's clear that rob vontaze team would like to run against eric early because they think that he is the most conservative and it would be the easiest for them. to run against
4:27 pm
their running ads right now sort of trying to prop him up, but it will be interesting to see who ends up being the top two. it's thought that rob bonta will be one of them since he's the only democrat in the race, but who ends up running against him is going to be really fascinating. it's not quite clear who that's going to be right now, alex. so we talked to eric early. we also talked to the authors of that very buzzy new york times bestselling book called this will not pass written by to the authors from the new york times. this is the book that had those tapes from kevin mccarthy. all that attention. a lot of details in there about a lot of players from california, so we have that as part of the issue is as well. and you talk about your conversation with eric early, you know, as you step back and look at the big picture republicans really trying to break through and win a statewide election here, talk a little bit about why they sort of see a real opportunity with the attorney general's race in particular. well. rob bonta has never won statewide office. so
4:28 pm
he's not that familiar to a lot of voters again. he was appointed by gavin newsom when javier becerra became the secretary of health and human services. and people are fed up with crime. i mean the two issues that people are most frustrated with right now in california are homelessness and crime, so they see an opening there, especially potentially for somebody like isn't a repubn and running as a decline to state could she sort of be palatable for voters that are trying to send a message? rob bonta is somebody who has backed tessa baden in the bay area a cd a. george gascogne, both of them now facing recalls, so could bond to be sort of taken out. as part of that movement. we shall see. it's certainly going to be a race to keep an eye on here. appreciate it, alex. always good to see you. and if you want to hear more of alex's interview with eric early into the issue is coming up this weekend. it

4:35 pm
to be the very first to face manslaughter charges over a crash while using tesla's self driving feature. how significant is this? well, it's very significant. i mean, that's a, um, big message to the public that when you drive cars like tesla that have this, i'll call it in automatic pilot. you don't get to a barricade your responsibility and driving that car. you're responsible to do the right thing in the car and you can override that autopilot and this judge was absolutely right and say no. you are going to stand trial for vehicular manslaughter for killing two people. now i know the car went through a red light. i don't know the speed, but it was fast enough. that ain't killed two people. you're driving it. you're responsible, albeit there will be mitigation. i'm sure that they will present at the jury trial. yeah that driver michael kevin riyadh was
4:36 pm
apparently going about 72 mph when he slammed into that car, killing those two people. you mentioned kind of the crux of this case. tesla argues, autopilot doesn't mean that these cars drive themselves that the driver is still in charge. how much will that argument and also speed play a role in this case? well at some 0.1 house to think that if you're in the car and you see autopilots moving this car into the 70 mile an hour range and the speed limit is a lot less than that override it. slow it down and not knowing or saying well, it's tesla's fault. it was the autopilot i'm relying on that's not going to sell. it won't sell to a jury. it won't sell to a judge. i'll tell you a story. there was a couple that bottom motor home and they had that cruise control and they put the motor home on cruise control and then go back to the back of the home. and
4:37 pm
start playing cards and boom off the freeway. it goes an accident and they tried to say it's the car's fault there was and the cruise control, not our fault that didn't sell either. i mean , people have to understand when they take a car that has cruise control or there's autopilot. they are in charge. they can override it. now all tesla have some responsibility in a civil case. absolutely that'll be the deep pocket for the victim's family to go after. but criminally you were driving the car. you should have been paying attention. you should have known that car was going 72 miles an hour. you're sure to put the brakes on and you should have noticed that red light. and when the judge was, you know, looking at whether there was probable cause here. he did, in fact, hear from a tesla engineer who testified. that sensors indicate the driver had a hand on the steering wheel. but then that same data showed no brakes were applied in the six minutes
4:38 pm
before that crash. so, what does that tell you? paul tells me they're not paying attention or you're going along with. i like to drive fast. i mean, one thing. i think a lot of us have noticed about the pandemic. you get out on our freeways here in the bay area, and people seem to be driving exponentially faster and not only faster. but weaving in and out of traffic. i don't understand. i mean, apparently, there's pent up covid effect has put people on the road and they want to go awfully fast. it seems to me that might be what happened. to the gentleman driving this car. oh, look, i'm going 72 not controlling it and then running a red light because certainly he could see the red light or should have seen the red light coming up and start putting the brakes on. but he didn't. he's responsible. a jury if it gets there, in my opinion, if those are all the facts we'll find him guilty of something, although there might be a little
4:39 pm
bit of mitigation, depending on what he tells the jury about the autopilot and what he thought about autopilot, but i don't think that it's going to have that big enough effect. as you mentioned it is two counts of vehicular manslaughter and obviously given you know the magnitude of this case, it's going to be closely watched michael cardoza, always a pleasure. have a good good weekend. thank you. you too. stay healthy. all thank you. tesla ceo elon musk is denying reports he exposed himself to a flight attendant on a spacex plane. business insider reports spacex paid as much as $250,000 in so called hush money to a woman after the encounter in 2016. the woman worked as a member of the cabin crew for spacex's corporate jet fleet. she was also an onboard masseuse, she says musk exposed himself during a massage. on twitter must call the allegations of politically motivated hit piece. mill and in music festival is coming to san
