Luis Gongoro Pat are in San Francisco from Yucatan, trying to understand why the police shot their homeless relative on April 7th of this year. Lorena again translated:
At this listening meeting on Thursday at St. John the Evangelist organized by Faith in Action, Supervisor David Campos described his plan to try to dilute the mayor's monopoly of power over the police department by creating an office of a Public Advocate like the one in New York City. Supervisor John Avalos is proposing that the supervisors place a kind of hold on part of the SFPD budget next year, pending measurable reforms.
Meanwhile, it's still the case that, since 2000, the SFPD has killed 40 civilians; no officers have been charged.
