5:44 pm
can we get to through 1/3rd of recommendations that are presented with the union it continues to resist change the process lacks transparent and seems to be substantive not to mention allegations of commissioners speaking pubically and posturing and stating who they want to be the next chief this is inappropriate we must stop right now we must show that we representative reform we must show we support transparent what i want to do the right thing in the eastbound selection of the next chief the chief i've stated need to be one that has a proven track record and is a viable candidate that will be of our interest to everyone i stand before you also extremely troublgd by the san francisco chronicle news article

5:47 pm
threaten cops they're not killed they beat the case between the cops dealing with people of color and white people and so-called model minorities that is you know something that needs to be changed and police need to be changed and police culture changed you guys need to work on many at some point that is coming to a head i'd like to see the problem resolved in the most positive is position for both sides to get on with the business policing is a tough job but - >> yeah. thank you, sir. >> good evening and welcome. >> aclu sergeant williams said a lot of what was said in a letter from jeff adachi and jennifer and myself that appears

6:17 pm
police and the peace officers and the choke holds why not stop this it madness and why not do it here we we all have a chance and opportunity a little bit of good luck amen one candidate asked douglas mccartney advise on sending american soldiers to vietnam and douglas mccartney said no. you can't send american troops to a fight they can't recognize the enemy and since that time we mill transition our police and given them people to recognize as brown and black suspects we need
6:18 pm
a better alignment we want the police officers in the community to stay alive and prosper that should be our goal. >> thank you 34rig9>> next speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> hi good evening jennifer from the coalition on homelessness as you know i was part of the stakeholder group talking about the use of force policy and i just want to review things a little bit and make some recommendations in terms of moving forward we have an intensive and rushed as you recall process to come up with recommendations around use of force that was a series of previous intervene meetings and work that was done there was recommendations that
6:19 pm
ended upcoming to this body that were approved and we're not put in place and waiting for the police officers to do a meet and confer with the police officers association it, it is in police officers association - in terms of having the least accountability possible when those processes go forward that shouldn't be in your interests it is a different perspective how to have an audible police department and public safety in terms of not using extensive use of force as well so we just want to strongly recommend because as we are halting those things they have policies that are the old policies that are currently in play we have for example, on the vehicle shootings shooting at vehicles happening about every 8
6:20 pm
months in san francisco so you know we really need to move along and have a very strong use of force policy the department of justice is recommending a full ban on shooting at vehicles should be moving forward the other two recommendations is that came from the community groups should be moving forward as well us from the ebs coalition of homelessness interface with police officers we're particularly concerned thank you thank you, ma'am. >> next speaker. good evening and welcome. >> hello, i grew up in lake view ingleside area you know something i at ocean view park i was beat up in the early noticing by the police at ocean view park i mean it was
6:21 pm
just it was an all the time occurrence being seen you know what will happen to our music i know like ours is a moving the fact of the matter you know and it's been ongoing for so long and now instead of the abuse they shooting you know they really shooting and you know something this really has to stop because you know my niece and nephews is coming up i want them to say a normal life you know i don't feel you know that they have to worry about protecting themselves or being a place afraid to run when they see the police you know and if this was - the car was supposedly moving
6:22 pm
not supposed to be shooting at or no chase especially a residential neighborhood so they say if it was a high-speed chase you you know and it wasn't like a whole bunch of crime activist take place in the area you know so i wonder why you know this person you know was targeted and why his family can't see him this is never unheard of and what is really going on with the on wooits is in jail it is totally not right and his house got rated why? because he was a witness to the police nothing new nothing new so i hope we can make a difference if not maybe -
6:23 pm
>> thank you, ms. moore house. >> next speaker. >> >> (clapping.) >> >> good evening and welcome. >> hello, i'm barbara about being arrested actually whatever my defy divorcee share my rap sheet was not short my divorce was - i have nothing against the police you can only go with the reports put forth to you false police reports are against the law but some people get away with that but i wanted to say when they have like mario woods
6:24 pm
the officers look like a bunch of dummies they were all filmed to completely you have to realize our on candid camera everyone has a camera and could you please role a more professional they all subdivided their guns and what's the glory of bringing in a corps one shot will do and if they ever try to train the police officers to wound and maim and not shot to kill they can have another shot it fair charging mario woods was not a big imperfect boy type he had a knife but broken his arm or something thought is sort shoot to wound only is a request
6:25 pm
i want to put forward here. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> good evening welcome again remember last i seen you going to have a more slogan make it happen chaplain i did not see you yesterday but with the new chief thing our assumptions it ed lee want to appoint whatever ed lee want we don't want i don't care you're cool behind closed doors we don't need our shrines we came today, the whole community of los angeles view this is a very important and strong statement you should take serious this is a community you may arrest 80 percent of them
6:26 pm
with trumped up charges didn't deserve to get beat like you heard the sister earlier i think we're going to doing everything we can we're organizing we're trying to get this together regardless of what your job you know restrictions or whatever you can do like with the hunger strike and everyone trying to show compassionate and humility like general concerns regardless of your jobs you should make our way over there and do something to make sure that brother is alive you know what i mean you guys tried to kill him not like the san francisco police department or the daily city police department you all have drinks together i'm asking you actually demanding that you somebody needs to do
6:27 pm
something about that like i said you may live off the brothers misery try to make some happen. >> thank you. next speaker. >> (clapping.) >> good evening and welcome. >> good evening i try to keep my appearances on a rare coalition it is pretty bad because last time i spoke we were choosing the chief the community had no participation equip for a few of you who listened to the community and take it back the community wanted to say a seat at the table to choose the next chief that didn't happen supposedly against the rules of this body i've not seen the rules to choose the next chief you have a poa that condominium i was in the room i work with the task force that negotiated
6:28 pm
with in in going to we'll not prohibit those protocols to come into play in our meet and confer we promised that what did they do they said we'll rescind that agreement and not agree there is not only a lack of trust of the community what happens now you've picked the wrong community because we have you've never seen a room full of black people demanding justice from the police department usually white and latino wanted justice for the community it - they'll willing to organize this case with mr. 34078d is one of the most suspicious cases i guarantee i see the footage they're claiming a high-speed
6:29 pm
