Today was a historical today at San Francisco City Hall! Resolution 51; The Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to request The United States of America Department of Justice conduct an independent investigation into the shooting deaths of Alex Nieto, Amilcar Perez and Mario Woods!
This is a momentous time in the city of San Francisco, where two communities have come together to hold each other up as one. The African-American and Latino community have unified and decided that we will not lay down to the SFPD or the POA. The Mario Woods Coalition and The Alex Nieto Coalition have unified and dedicate their energy to keep the pressure on SFPD, The Mayor’s office, The Board of Supervisors and the Office Of Citizens Complaints. We will continue to demand for justice for all victims of police murders and police brutality.
Our Coalitions will continue to honor the lives of Mario Woods, Alex Nieto, Amilcar Perez, Kenneth Harding and all victims of police murders in the Bay Area and beyond. Our future generation needs us now and we will make sure fundamental changes are implemented in the San Francisco Police Department, because that’s where the core of the darkness is.
We would like to publicly thank supervisors John Avalos and David Campos for reviving this resolution and the rest of the Board of Supervisors for passing it. We look forward to working with the board in the future and thank you for giving us a glimmer of hope in city government.
