spend time with the president, his visit could cause some headaches. the last time he was in san francisco, people were stuck in traffic for hours. mike sugerman is outside the fairmont hotel with his own story of being inconvenienced by the visit. >> reporter: i made it. it i went up four or five of nob hills getting here but i did. i find a waiting committee for the president. are you guys here to see the president or stuck? >> we're stuck! >> i'm waiting. >> stuck. >> reporter: a lot of people stuck here and this is not the only corner. >> some of you are complaining that you have been stuck in traffic for hours. >> reporter: yeah, remember that? >> check this out. gridlock in san francisco! >> reporter: boy, was there gridlock in san francisco october 10. it was a friday, the start of fleet week and obama fundraiser south of market. >> we got stuck here five hours, came to do a little shopping and then, yeah, it's been crazy. >> reporter: he knows about
6:01 pm
presidential inconvenience. >> i got my car towed. >> reporter: did that happen because she is a republican? no. but she is. vice president of the state republican party. >> unbeknownst to me an hour later the president's motorcade was going to be going by the street. >> reporter: fast forward to the next couple of days. >> we're going to have lots of street closures as a result and we want people to avoid the area so that they're not caught up in any traffic. >> reporter: san francisco police have called off all vacation days and there will be lots of overtime like there has been in the past. >> in april when he was here for two days, um, i think that cost like $200,000. >> reporter: that is all on the city budget. >> we're pretty used to it here being inconvenienced by the president's fly-by fundraising. but that's what he does. he comes in, treats us an atm machine and moves on to the next target. >> this is a constant tension that has happened with the modern presidency. >> reporter: melissa griffin- caen is our kpix 5 political analyst who says it's affected
6:02 pm
more when a democrat is president because republicans very rarely come to california. obama has been here 20 times. george bush came twice. >> it's not uncommon for presidents to try to bundle public official duties with fundraising because that way you can sort of justify the taxpayer paying for that official duty part of the trip. >> reporter: fundraiser $10,000 a seat for dinner, $32,000 if you want a picture. i was surprised to find out george bush it come here twice because i don't know if you remember but san francisco had a thing on the ballot to name the sewage treatment plant the george bush sewage treatment plant. he wasn't really welcome here. i will tell you that the president isn't here yet but it will be the fastest evening commute probably in the history of evening commutes when he does get here. veronica? >> i'm sure many people will be happy to hear that. mike, i enjoy that cameo appearance there in your story. thank you. >> reporter: the bad night. i remember that night completely. >> thank you. let's take a live look
6:03 pm
right now at traffic. anywhere you see red on the map that's gridlock. cars are barely moving. but right now, doesn't look too bad. if you are on the bridge maybe. speaking of the president, he makes a salary of $400,000 a year. it turns out the head of san francisco's public schools is not far behind him pulling down $310,000. and he just got a big raise. new at 6:00, kpix 5's da lin on the $65,000 pay bump. da. >> reporter: well ken, the district says pay up or lose him. that's why the board voted unanimously to approve the $65,000 raise. it's a 25% increase over three years. it's now drawing criticism. the superintendent's $65,000 salary increase is what the average san francisco teacher makes a year.
6:04 pm
the teacher makes even less. $262,000. >> for me it's not the paycheck that's the reward. it's the smiles i get every day from the kids. >> reporter: but she can't pay rent with smiles. in fact, allison is fighting eviction in the cash strap. she says the landlord wants to put in a new tenant and double the rent. >> with my salary and the rent prices, i would have to leave san francisco. >> reporter: so many teachers are struggling with basic necessities and that's why san francisco unified is facing criticism for the 25% increase. richard caranza will make about $310,000. that's more than the oakland and san jose superintendents. but they are smaller districts. >> when you look at comparable school districts in california, they are paying at about the same level that we're offering. >> reporter: the school board president says the superintendent is a hot commodity. >> districts are calling him trying to recruit him. so we have to do what we can to keep a very, very talented superintendent. >> reporter: the teachers union says they will ask for the same
6:05 pm
reward when they negotiate their next contract. >> there's respect being shown to the superintendent by giving him a raise. we want to see that kind of respect given to our members as well. >> reporter: allison isn't demanding a big increase. she says as long as she can afford to live and work in her district, she will be happy. >> i see learning happening. i see a miracle happening. teachers are miracle workers. >> reporter: we could not get the superintendent to talk about the story today. now, even with this big increase, the district says the current superintendent is making a lot less than the previous superintendent. that superintendent was making about $400,000 a year before he retired. live in san francisco, i'm da lin, kpix 5. >> still with that increase, the superintendent will be one of the highest paid public administrators in the city of san francisco. it brought bart service to a halt and caused headaches for thousands. but the protestors who blocked trains won't have to pay for
6:06 pm
it. the bart board decided not to seek $70,000 in restitution. the protestors will still face misdemeanor trespassing charges for chaining themselves to trains back in november. it was all part of a "black lives matter" demonstration that stopped the trains for hours. >> that's what this action was about, disrupting business as usual to elevate the fact that our lives matter. >> this is a balancing act. we have many, many people who were riding the train that day who were inconvenienced. >> "black lives matter"! >> it is up to the alameda county district attorney's office to pursue the trespassing charges. the protestors are due in court next month. san jose making a pitch to end a bitter fight over police tensions. city leaders are offering a half off deal. the unions have gone to court to block the voter-approved $49 million in pension cuts. san jose is now countering with a proposal that would save $25 million in retirement costs. the pension fight is part of the reason there's been a mass
6:07 pm
exodus of officers from the force. a show of solidarity today for striking refinery workers. nurses join the picket lines in martinez. >> we are in support of the steelworkers strike because they are facing some issues that we feel like are public safety issues. >> workers at the tesoro refinery have been striking as part of a national movement by the united steelworkers union upset about unsafe conditions. reryan if i workers say fires, emissions, leaks and explosions put their lives in danger. the tesoro refinery shut down last week. meanwhile tesoro says is it use the terminal to store oil. still no movement at the port of oakland as part of a bigger shutdown of west coast ports because of a standstill with contract talks. operators say they won't hire crews to load or unload ships during the long holiday weekend. they are accusing the longshoreman's union of slowing down work to gain leverage in
6:08 pm
the negotiations. the unions say workers safety is a major sticking point in contract talks with the pacific maritime association investigators now have an idea of what that mystery goo is that killed hundreds of birds in the bay. scientists have narrowed down the substance to a synthetic or natural oil or fat. they are still determining the exact oil or fat-based product. wildlife officials don't know if it was deliberately dumped in the bay or part of an accidental spill. more than 500 birds were affected last month. at least 300 died. in the meantime something strange is going on with pelicans in santa cruz county. this one died last night. a second pelican was found in hollister on tuesday and it died shortly after rescuers got to it. investigators say it is unusual to see them this far inland. one theory is they could be starving. the birds have been sent to the state for testing. take a look at what's going on in the vatican and you can

see the catholic church is "evolving." pope francis has more liberal views than some of his predecessors. but some parishioners in san francisco say local leaders are not getting on the bandwagon. kpix 5's devin fehely explains their concerns. >> reporter: yeah. what does it mean to be a catholic in the modern world? the answer depends on who you ask. in bay area there is discussion over the identify of the catholic church. >> if i say this is who i am -- >> reporter: it was a message of tolerance. >> -- my parish will turn their back on me. >> reporter: uniquely tailored not philosophy of a popular energetic new pope intent on reforming what's historically been a proudly traditional and traditionally conservative church. >> what this pope wants is a church that is pastoral, a church that is willing to meet people where they are at in their lives. >> reporter: but if the all are welcome mass at this church
6:10 pm
aimed at homosexuals seemed to signal a more modern accepting stance on social issues, recent events in the archdiocese of san francisco suggest that there may be a battle brewing over the heart and soul and direction of the church. >> i don't think anything we're doing is in contradiction even to the spirit of pope francis. >> reporter: some parents and parishioners at the star of the sea church and school in san francisco disagree. they feel that a recent decision to no longer allow girls to participate as altar boys as well as morality clauses in teacher contracts represents catholicism not in keeping with the pope. >> i can get behind in supporting what we can do make the world better for everybody. i have nothing positive to say about deciding who is and isn't worthy of my love or who is evil or isn't evil. there is nothing there for me. >> reporter: but others say it would be a profound mistake to try and broaden the church's

6:12 pm
>> it's part of the rich tapestry of the church and tension. >> going through change. >> devin, thank you. tonight we're getting two very different accounts of a deadly confrontation with police. coming up, the frantic moments right before officers opened fire. >> doctors trying to keep up as the measles outbreak spreads. where they are seeing a rush of people clamoring to get vaccinated. >> and they are going old school on this bay area campus. what students won't be allowed to do for the next three days. >> if that honey do list was so long today, you couldn't get outside to enjoy that, don't worry about it. we're going to do it again! a lot. find out which days will be the warmest and when we will finally cool down. do we not live in the most beautiful city in america? that's san francisco on a thursday evening.

linda macdonald is captioning for you in real time. now at 6:30, a bay area doctor arrested in a case involving drugs and a whole lot of cash. welcome back, i'm veronica de la cruz. >> i'm ken bastida. kpix 5 has learned the alleged owner of a chain of medical marijuana clinics is facing criminal charges in one of the first cases of its kind in the state. prosecutors tell juliette goodrich it's a prescription mill that generates millions of dollars in cash with most of that money laundered and sent overseas. >> reporter: 30 minutes to opening time at this clinic and things are already jumping. car after car pulling in, people waiting to see a physician for a medical marijuana recommendation. they are not doing anything illegal. but according to law enforcement, the doctor is. can you tell us what's going on inside?
6:31 pm
>> uhm -- >> it's organized crime. >> reporter: ralph hughes is an investigator with the medical board. he says dr. bennie brown would have to own and operate the clinic. but in this case, he says, there's evidence of a group of nondoctors are running it instead. a felony under california law. >> there's an awful lot of money that is, we think, moved out of the country. >> reporter: suspected ringleader michael malenkov appeared in court on charges including money laundering and unlawful practice of of medicine. his attorney wouldn't go on camera but told us her clients simply provided marketing services for dr. brown and did nothing illegal. but prosecutors point to documents they say show malenkov pays the lease and the salaries of employees including dr. brown, who was hired on craigslist and paid handsomely. >> it was about $22,000 a
6:32 pm
month. and it was all cash. >> reporter: prosecutors believe malenkov is operating four clinics illegally in oakland, berkeley, san jose and sacramento. how much cash are we talking about? >> we believe that the smaller clinics are probably somewhere in the million-dollar a year range. the larger clinics, the oakland and sacramento clinics, probably closer to 3 to $4 million a year. >> reporter: that's a conservative estimate. some recommendations cost much more. we saw it firsthand when we went in undercover. >> you have a higher script exemption card? it's 99 plants and 11 pounds that's 299. >> reporter: then there's the law enforcement package for an extra 50 bucks. >> anything ever happens with you with the law you have to go to court we pay dr. brown hourly rate to go to court with you to testify on your behalf. >> reporter: and it's all cash. >> we know that when we did the
6:33 pm
search warrant for malenkov we found stacks of shipping streets packages being sent to ukraine. we wanted to ask dr. brown about his involvement. >> reporter: in the past you have faced serious charges or do in terms of criminal profiteering, conspiracy, yet you're here. why? >> i don't know what you're talking about. >> reporter: but you are facing charges in san jose for other clinics and handing out these type of medical marijuana packages? >> done all over california. >> reporter: but the medical board doesn't agree. shortly after our interview, sheriff's deputies arrested dr. brown for conspiring to operate a clinic without a license. >> he was warned a couple times that it was a felony for him to be doing that. he didn't care. >> reporter: medical marijuana advocates say, why are you going after the pot doctor? >> this is knowing to do with marijuana. it has to do with organized crime and it has to do with corruption. >> reporter: juliette goodrich, kpix 5. >> this is the second time that
6:34 pm
dr. bennie brown has been arrested for the same illegal activity. last year, he was writing recommendations out of another clinic in san jose, also allegedly owned by malenkov. that clinic was shut down. let's take a live look now. the streets have been barricaded tonight in san francisco. president obama is now at the fairmont hotel. we saw a big motorcade roll up just about 20 minutes ago. it's all part of a three-day visit that includes a democratic fundraiser and a big summit tomorrow at stanford. tomorrow president obama is going to be looking to silicon valley for help to ramp up cyber security. elizabeth cook has a preview of the summit at stanford. >> reporter: president obama says the attack on sony pictures served as a wake-up call for corporations and the government alike. he since stepped up malenkov cyber security efforts but says there's a lot more work to do. data breaches don't just affect
6:35 pm
our personal security. >> it's one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation. >> reporter: recent attacks like the sony hack have spurred the white house to action. president obama has set aside $14 billion in the u.s. budget to boost cyber security. now he is seeking support from the private sector. the president will attend a summit on cyber security and consumer protection at stanford. business, government and academic experts will attend. among them, stanford researcher herb lind. >> the fact that it's also focus on consumer protection is a big deal too because it says that ordinary citizens like you and me have a personal stake in cyber security as well. >> reporter: the summit will coverage a range offish oo us from developing patter password and authentication techniques to encouraging more secure payment methods. >> the president is going to be speaking with a large number of ceos of major american corporations who, i believe, are going to commit themselves
6:36 pm
to taking specific concrete actions to improve the cyber security postures of their individual organizations. >> reporter: apple's ceo tim cook will be speaking at the summit so it's likely that the subject of encryption will come up. cook previously said that apple's techniques make it impossible to intercept user data. in addition to representatives from key tech companies, the heads of major finance corporations are also scheduled to participate. that includes ceos of visa, mastercard and bank of america. >> big issue. >> reporter: absolutely. we also talked -- the anthem hack that was huge, as well. affected a lot of people. >> not the only one. >> reporter: no. >> liz, thank you. still ahead, a big buy-out in the travel business. plus, how costco is planning to change the way you pay. >> and a self-driving boat spotted in the bay area life's the food that brings us together.
