5:15 am
well as san francisco unified school district and the district attorney's office to deal dribble with the cross over for example, a lot of the youth that are in the situations where they center to have a gun on them they have a higher x public department of transportation rate in the san francisco unified school district african-american girls have a high x pulltion rate higher than the latino so the education factor has been able to have positive experiences around their future and ended up in different situations that led to crime i'd like to state that the violence services are really needed for the mothers and survivors of gun violence due to the fact they need to understand their rights and in terms of the
5:16 am
crimes scene as well as being able to have police officers who have a sensitivity around those mothers and just an opportunity for the department to unless a member of the commission, the public, or staff so requests educate the community as well as the community to educate the department and finally, i'd like to say we spelling need money for rewards in the past the city has had rewards and want to know where those dollars are to pit forward the faces of those children and let people know their lives matter thank you thank you very much >> next speaker. >> good evening my name is felicia joni represent the 1021 wealth and disparities in the black
5:17 am
community i stand before you out of concern that is african-americans is probably he less than 6 percent of the population once you look at every incident and tlornls preservation we're at the highest my issue with the city and county of san francisco and many of the department heads is that why is it over the last 3, 4, 5 years there has been 3 documents that has been researched on black people in the city and county of san francisco at the same time, we have been disrespected and can't get a phone call from any heads of the departments including chooefr department we reach out to have you in dialog for solutions and nothing happens here we're again, today meeting i'd like to know when are we really going to
5:18 am
begin to develop and really work on hard solutions we've met but with you guys will two or three weeks ago i said you were going to contact us nothing has happened so here we have in a different part of town begging for the same thing and beyond why we can't be replaced i don't know why we are not deserving of getting a phone call back and beyond why we're not deserving to the da to sit at the table with the chief we say black lives matter it does and we as a people i'm speaking to my people right now we have to stand up and we have to stop being so silent around this whole thing of how you treat us the thing of it is we have been talking for
5:19 am
45 years 45 years research is on the table research are in our offices the research is that the mayor's office the research is at board of supervisors research is here so why is it we have to continue to talk. >> i'm tired of talking and tired of seeing my people dying no one in this city with a $8.6 billion budget $8.6 billion with $220 million that is also extra in reserve and nothing can be done. >> it's a shame it's really a shame (clapping). >> i really want to say i think
5:20 am
that this is very, very sad to be so quick to tell a person that is speaking from their heart that the time is up (clapping.) i mean you know this is not a game and i'm not here to play a pit full game and not here to come to the meetings and not get anything done i'm ms. chandler the mother of a child that was murdered on january '49 and i'll call dr. marshall when it comes to the memorial service did you make it no you do not he participate a furious, however he was working at the ben had an japan's restaurant and called me the 945 everyone knows the story he walked on a half hour lunch

5:22 am
gangs we were told by the police department the fbi was not needed that's the question i feel we as a right as mothers to request if all those cases are not being solved you need help you know and have the fbi come in and other task force to come in to be able to assist i think this should be mandatory abused u because we're playing games all the murders and homicides unsolved when you say black lives matter i guarantee you when the - >> ma'am the time. >> doors were broken down when the combermz was murdered two weeks later you found the killer even when peterson case did he need a reward poster for my kid
