reducing police violence against san franciscans and particularly people of color. it is disappointing, but no coincidence sfpd chose to withdraw from this agreement during the first-ever trial against an on-duty san francisco police officer for an unlawful beating. us is p g's decision comes a week after an sfpd fatal police shooting which police falsely characterize the deseeded as being in possession of a firearm and weeks after a criminal case was dismissed after officer excessive force came to light. however, chief scott says this decision has nothing to do with oversight and everything to do with a process that is fair. he says he's now working to find alternatives for independent investigations. also has been in the letter reached out to the state attorney general. >> for guidance on how we can get through this with the appropriate independent oversight. i'm taylor bisacky reporting kron. 4 news. >> to the east bay. now oakland police have identified a teenager and a young man killed in a hit and run. the

10:35 pm
2000, 11 that was attacked there by a 2 men who both received prison sentences. like i mentioned in this story, kind of gives you that feel again. that's why they're hoping anyone can come forward. and, of course, a share any information we have to imagine after situation like this, they are ready beefed up security that we can tell you is probably going to enhance even more come super bowl sunday. that was my question with the super bowl right around the corner. are city leaders also issuing any warnings? are they talking about any concerns for safety? >> this is a big event that's coming to la in just a couple of weeks. >> it is a massive event. so far they cleaned up the area all around englewood around. so fi stadium put up new fencing. they've had more security guards at each one of the entrance. that's what we've noticed so far. we know that inside the fence is they've added as much security personnel as possible on game day. they did so for the nfc championship game and they plan to do so. even more for the super bowl, unfortunately, still have the incident
