1:06 am
or commissioners are required to respond to questions presented by the public, but may provide a brief response. individual commissioners and police and occ personnel should refrain from any debates with speakers during public comment. please limit comments to three minutes. >> before you proceed, i'd like to say i listened to you on doctor marshall's show and learned so much about you from these three minute sound bites we get each week. it was very moving. i think tonight i'll give you three minutes for yourself and three minutes for your son. i want you to explain some things you're feeling that you told doctor marshall. it meant a lot to us. please, you get six minutes.
1:07 am
>> okay. >> hello, yeah. hank you. my name is paula brawn and i'm here concerning my son who was murdered by an automatic gun. as i come here every time i still have no judges. i always bring the names, which i left in the car tonight of the perpetrators that were involved in my son's case. i still have no closure as a mother. i'm still out there
1:08 am
paving the ground, trying to get justice, carrying my son's pictures, hanging them up as often as i can just to have them torn down. we have -- i have no venue to hang these pictures or to hang my help wanted poster. there's a $250,000 reward that i still yet to give somebody to come forth and identify the perpetrators. as i said on doctor marshall's show that i don't hate these perpetrators, i forgive them. i forgive them because i can't die hating them, but i do want justice and i do want them in jail. i do want them to go to jail. i do want to go and say why did you kill my son. i at least deserve that.
1:09 am
i at least deserve an apology from them, whatever they say to me. i want to tell them too, let me show you the love i want you to give to my son, that's what you took from me. yet these perpetrators are still walking the street and i feel sorry for their parents. i wouldn't want them to go through what i'm going through everyday. believe me, i don't want to stand here, i don't want to be here ever. i don't want to be doing this. we have a lot of mothers and fathers out there that are going through this and that i listen to everyday. we stand together and if it wasn't for those other mothers and fathers, i don't know what where i'd be. i still carry my son's picture here that i have to look at everyday. this is what keeps
1:10 am
me strong. it keeps me fighting. i have to do this because if i don't i'd seem like i'm forgetting about my child. it's been seven years -- seven years, everyday i walk out my house and see where my son laid. everyday i blame myself, everyday i think about if i had been there, maybe he'd be alive. and as i say all the time if i had been there i would have took those bullets for my child because my son should have been burying me, not me burying him. i'm at the stage where it's been seven years and i'm still crying and sometimes i think when i come here no one's listening to me, but you say you do, and i believe you. but this is something i'll be doing for the rest of my life.
1:11 am
i want closure. i have want some closure, just a little bit for someone to come forth. maybe i'll never get it, but this is something i'll be coming to do for the rest of my life. i know i keep repeating myself because i don't know what else to say. i make my way here every wednesday. i make my way down to 850 brian. i make my way down here to city hall just to bring awareness to this killing that's going on in the street. no mother should have to go through this, no mother. i want to say to the perpetrators, i don't hate you, but you need to think about -- you have to go to bed everyday, you need to go home everyday, you need to lay down and think about what you've done in your life, just like i go home everyday and think about my son when i lay down. after school, when i get home all i can think about is him.
1:12 am
i have other children, yes, i do. but i'm empty in my heart with one gone. i just need prayer and i hope those names that i gave last time someone can say something about it, i also want to say the -- my son's case number is 060862038 and then anonymous tip line is 575-4444. if anybody know they can call this number and say something. this is not for me, this is for ever mother out there.
1:13 am
like i said, i'm not going to take up my six minutes, but i hope you give it to me next time because i don't have everything, but just continue to pray for me and i'll see you next police commission. >> thank you, doctor marshall. >> miss brown, you were great on sunday. you were great, you were great, you were great and you will be -- and the show was about the code of silence and snitching. you know, it keeps murderers on the street and unfortunately the code or a lot of folks in the community and aside from obviously wanting to life highlight your case, to put a
1:14 am
personal face -- for some reason people don't get it until it happens to them. the whole thing, you are them and you made that very, very, very clear and i specifically appreciated you sat about 20 minutes talking about your circumstances and i had forgotten myself that your son was telling other people to run when in fact -- i mean, you talking about innocent kid, you can't be anymore innocent than telling other folks to stay out of harm's way and then he takes the bullet. so for whatever it's worth, i talked to a lot of people that said your story really got to him. i don't know if it'll unearth anything, but just -- maybe if it doesn't in this case, it will make people think about somebody else, themselves and understand that, you know, we're all connected. but i just got to say you're a
1:15 am
trooper with this whole thing anyway, and you were really, really great on sunday and it got to everybody in the studio and i'm sure everybody that was listening. keep coming, we haven't forgotten. police are on it and just like you're looking, we'll probably be looking for the rest of our lives too. >> i also want to say to the people that he saved too, for all the guys on the stairs who ran, say something. he saved your life. people call my son a hero, but i don't have him. he's not my hero. he was your hero, he was their hero and i think they should open their mouths and say something. say something. you know who you are. you know who i am. you see me everyday. i speak to you. say something. give me some closure. you've played with my children.
1:16 am
you've played on my stairs when you were little. those of you, you know who you are, the people he saved. open your mouths, don't wait 'til it hits your homes until you say something. don't wait. you don't want to be doing what i'm doing right now. you don't want your parents or auntie or uncle doing this. there's other mothers and fathers out there too that i also advocate for and they also need closure too so i'm also speaking for those other mothers and fathers out there also. >> you are, so thank you, thank you very much. thank you for speaking for your son three minutes. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> good evening. you know, miss brown. i'm going to prove one point, a
1:17 am
mother's love never dies. your son -- he's upstairs watching you. he doesn't -- >> thank you clyde. >> good evening commissioners and director hicks, how are you doing? i have sent and email relating to the new legislation before the board of supervisors for the park hour closures and this has been through a few hearings, it'll be through one more next tuesday and they made some amendments to it, some carve outs, which brings me to the report aspect again since it's recent and fresh and trying to figure out what
1:18 am
reports go where and that has to be hard to decipher, especially when they put reports into law. that talks about piling it up instead of just having the ability to modify or adjust at will. i sent you all an email urging a no vote on this or pulling the support because essentially it has too many carve outs, it'll add stress to the officers who have to enforce this. you know, do i cite 'em for this or that, you know, it's just not well thought out legislation and especially with all the carve outs and amendments, it's not that great. follow up on my 5150 situation, i have not heard anything since the last time i contacted the occ so i'm still in limbo six months later.
1:19 am
and as far as miss brown here, something for the commission to think about or victim services in the sftv maybe possibly when this happens, offering a connect to the small business administration to get her under an advocacy business license, a non profit business license, if there's something that the city can do to facilitate that so that victims of violent homicide or any sort of issue, if they want to be an advocate for the public and other victims of like circumstance, maybe putting a program together for that might be something to think about, not that you don't have enough to think about already.
1:20 am
thank you. >> thank you very much. any further public comment. hearing none, public comment is now closed. chief's report. >> chief's report discussion, review of activities. >> i bring up last wednesday morning, the city suffered its 39th homicide, which occurred during a -- what was a shooting in and out of cars at about 4:50 in the morning on november 6. i bring this up because there's been a lot of coverage in the media about a pretty reprehensible attack on a sleeping homeless person at 4:44 that same morning at that exact same location. there hasn't been any mention that it happened within six minutes of the homicide, but that was the case. responding officers to the call that there had been an assault, when they came on scene, the
1:21 am
person who we've determined to be a woman and we've identified her and had her examined by an ambulance last night, got up and walked off and said she was fine, didn't want to make a police report when within 90 seconds to 120 seconds of that, there were multiple shots fired and understandably all officers in the southern went to what ended up being a homicide. it's not an excuse as to why what didn't get done, but the officers that went on scene had no way of knowing the brutality of that attack because no one knew until they saw it on the video. as soon as we were made aware of this, the officers began working about inearnest as you could, made a john doe report and have since located the victim and made sure she got
1:22 am
medically assessed and we're now pursuing what we hope to be the person responsible. now we're just calling it a person of interest, but that person's already been identified. i want to assure the public as soon as we were made aware of this event, there were no resources spared and the officers did a great job of identifying it after the fact. as far as current events also in the department, department command staff, the mayor and the fire department command staff marched together on veteran's day to recognize our -- those that have been in the armed services, which is a big honor for us. today i was at the alameda oes for the zone two meeting with the attorney general. she actually recognized the department for some of the progress we made in the area of technology and the justice mobile act and the smart phones and /aeu nouned there'll be a new initiative coming out that
1:23 am
the attorney general hopes will join all counties in california for shared regional information sharing, which is something people have been talking about, a bit of a holy grail since 9-1-1. also, the san francisco police department was recognized, officer /phab lo for their efforted during the saving of the elderly woman at the fire. they were recognized with an attorney general's award, which was a nice thing to do since all those other law enforcement agents were present. the thing that everything keeps asking me about in light of all the other great work the officers are doing, everybody wants to know about that kid. on friday, the department and partnership of make a wish will
1:24 am
have the assistance of that kid to save the kid, damsel in distress, make sure the city's taxpayers bulk is not taken and finally, we'll save lucille so we have lucille for next season with the giants and then it'll close with the mayor presenting that kid with what he might find to be a very tasty key to the city that day. when this happened, we do a lot of work with make a wish and other charities, we go in the bay twice a year, we do tip-a-cop, many things, and many people come forward to help out and we were hoping we could get a crowd of about 500 on friday to give that kid his hero's welcome, miles, who is suffering from leukemia and wanted to be bat kid for a day and so for we had 7100 rsvps
1:25 am
for the event. people came forward and a t-shirt was designed. they sold out completely, all proceeds going to make a wish. there's another run going forward. anybody and everybody is welcome to come down and thank bat kid for the efforts he will make for the city that day. it's great to know what a great city we live in, that everybody would come together for a sick kid like this. 250,000 hits from social media, it is the definition of cool. >> thank you chief o'hare. commissioner kingsly. >> don't call me anything to do with hair. from the commissioners here.
1:26 am
>> thank you, great news. >> that would be. any further for the chief. none from the commission. please call line item 3b. >> occ director's report discussion, review activities, presentation of occ's 2013 third quarter statistical report and reports from january
1:27 am
1, 2013 to october 31, 2013. >> i apologize for interrupting, but i'm going to excuse myself. tonight is the 19th anniversary of the murder of jim gelf and i wouldn't want to miss it. >> mediation complaints, october 2013 and adjudication of sustained complaints and october 2013. >> good evening director hicks. >> good evening, members of the commission, deputy chief, and members of the audience. this evening i have three reports. i've mailed the briefs because there are three of them. for occ recent activities last thursday attended a networking event where i described my
1:28 am
office at the office of citizen complaint to both hall alumnae and current law students. also that same day sam, our policy analyst attorney met with children of incarcerated parents and she met last week with language access grantees with whom the immigrant affairs had arranged for her to meet. that concludes my report of recent activities. moving on, the october comprehensive statistical report. you have those reports in your packet, the monthly summeries of complaints received and disposition thereof from january to october 31, 2013 and the companion report.
1:29 am
i'll focus on mediation a bit. before i do that, in brief, through october 31, the occ opened 618 cases and closed 603. we have sustained 30 cases as of october 31 for 5 percent sustained rate. now moving to mediation of complaints in october. eight office of citizen complaints were mediated in october, compared to five in october 2012. between january 1, and october 31, 2013 for a total, 50 cases were mediated, compared to 53 during that same period last year. the chief adjudicated seven cases investigated by the occ and he adjudicated those cases
1:30 am
in october. the seven cases included a neglect -- three neglect of duty cases where separate officers in separate incidents failed to collect traffic stop data. each officer was admonished. in another case a sergeant's car was towed and was driven by an unlicensed driver, but the car's owner was sitting in the passenger seat and requested to drive the car, so the sergeant received a written reprimand. and an unnecessary force allegation, an officer used unnecessary force when attempting to take the complainant, fleeing jaywalking from custody by striking the suspect with the suspect's gun when
