Ed Lee: “We will not be implementing the stop and frisk program, or variations of that, in San Francisco”

A community forum to discuss stop and frisk tonight has been cancelled, in the wake of Mayor Lee's announcement yesterday that he would not be implementing the controversial policy.

“We will not be implementing the stop and frisk program, or variations of that, in San Francisco,” Lee said at a press conference yesterday that was well-attended by neighbors, faith leaders and other interested parties.

Before the announcement, a forum was planned tonight for a panel discussion about stop and frisk at the CCSF Southeast campus. It was organized by filmmaker Kevin Epps, known for Straight Outta Hunter's Point and Straight Outta Hunter's Point 2, and the Osiris Coalition.

"There's still a problem," Epps said. "But as far as what they had planned on doing, the mayor actually backed off of implementing any part of that."

Instead of stop and frisk, Lee said, the police will use "interrupt, prevent and organize" (IPO). The program involves keeping tighter tabs and the city's 200 parolees as well as formerly incarcerated people in general, using computer data to track and send police to high crime areas, and working with community groups to "liaison" between police and residents.

Many hope that the conversation continues, however. "Ed Lee needs to meet with some of the younger people in this community about how to stop this violence," said Jameel Patterson, organizer with the Bayview-based Black Star Liner Coalition. 

Comments

Oh please, Lee said right out that he might have to change the name to make it more palatable to San Franciscans who are adamantly opposed to the policy. Don't drink the Kool aid.

Yeah, just change the name. Use newsspeak. The piece of work will probably call it "civil" something (like that "civil sidewalks" nonsense newsspeak) or "reasonable" something or "sensible" something or "rational" something. All the things that it's not.

And BG do you have to put a picture of that man's face on here? That would give anyone gastritis. Whenever I see him I look the other way.

Racist pigs? LOL. I would not say they are pigs. They are "racist" I guess technically, because they are afraid of anyone of color. Why stop someone of color when you know some loser lawyer will be up your butt the next day?

Kenneth Harding be alive today he wasn't stopped. We don't need no stops.

If he paid to ride MUNI

He didn't run

He didn't pull a gun

He didn't shoot himself in the head

He some understanding of personal responsibility and taking part in the societal contract.

etc...

Ted Bundy would be alive today if he was better at...

If he stopped to enjoy life more instead of spending his days polluting internet chat boards.

If he weren't such an ornery troll

If he practiced the civility he preached

If he embodied the values of the Haight, rather than his own self-loathing hate.

If he had more kindness and compassion and less piss and vinegar

If he treated others with kindness and compassion, rather than focusing on spewing dogma and insulting others, he probably would have found more love and companionship in return. And as a result of better human connections, he would have lived a longer and healthier life, and probably wouldn't have died of a massive heart attack at 69, having been celibate for 25 years.

Let his death be a lesson to other internet trolls.

Seriously, look inside yourselves, folks. If all you do is spread misery to others, maybe it's you yourselves who are miserable. Maybe it's not too late to change that, before you wind up like the King of Trolls, the late Arthur Evans.

Arthur Evans made far more sense than Greg ever will.

True.

Greg told the truth about that piece of work.

But the trolls are not about to take the advice because they're only here for their attention-seeking drive as lonely existants and to feed their desire for dysfunction and arguments. A pathetic existence really.

what's is name was 20 something.

Posted by matlock on Aug. 10, 2012 @ 9:18 pm

to tell us all why we need to be more courteous online... Keep it classy, Greg!

But you know what's best about this, Arthur lived 69 years. And although he's been gone for almost a year *he is clearly still in your fucking head*.

That's awesome. Arthur's death was covered by the New York Times - yours probably won't make the Castro Courier. And most importantly, Arthur went out watching this City shift towards his ideology. Bummer he had to miss Rossgate, but I'm sure he's laughing at it from above. And laughing at you.

Arthur 1, Greg 0.

A guy who uses "Sambo" as a moniker is telling other people to keep it classy!

As for Arthur,
1. All trolls remind me of Arthur, because Arthur was the quintissential internet troll.
2. There is no "from above" and Arthur isn't laughing at anyone, especially me. I'm alive, and he's decomposing with maggots feasting on his carcass.

Incidentally, the politician Arthur most loved to hate was the progressive Tom Ammiano. Ever the concern troll, Arthur kept predicting the end of Ammiano's career. At one point I told him that not only would his predictions not come to pass, but he should prepare himself mentally, because Ammiano would be holding elected office after he, Arthur Evans, is dead and buried.

I was correct. Greg 1, Arthur 0. Not to mention Ammiano 1, Arthur 0.

Try to keep up, dumbass. People have been saying that for like a decade.

I'll admit I never graduated -- or even attended for that matter -- Troll University where someone such as yourself might have learned the term even when the technique was fresh and still in its development phase.

I'll tell you plainly in advance that I'll much appreciate any further cues regarding aspects of advanced trolling behavior you may be willing to offer in the future. Thanks.

That's all that matters. A year later and bringing me up out of nowhere. Owned.

Posted by Ghost of Arthur Evans on Aug. 11, 2012 @ 8:01 am

I don't think anybody on this forum had even thought of Arthur for quite some time - until you brought him up. Sambo's right, say what you want, but you're still thinking about him.

completely innocent, law-abiding citizen who was just going about his normal business?

I'd guess not. Say what you like but it's always the bad guys and the flith that get taken out this way.

Posted by lillipublicans© on Aug. 09, 2012 @ 7:59 am

"Yeah, has there ever been a case where cops shot a
completely innocent, law-abiding citizen who was just going about his normal business?"

Wait, are you the real lillipublicans making a sarcastic comment, or are you a copycat troll actually saying this in all sincerity? Your second sentence indicates the latter, but I have a hard time believing that anyone can be so out of touch with reality as to actually believe this.

Posted by Greg on Aug. 10, 2012 @ 10:29 pm

One might think it unlikely that anyone could be so benighted; that it is really a sly joke. I don't really tend to make such jokes -- favoring direct and literal speech, but maybe I should find time to practice.

“Stop and Frisk” is a prime example of racial profiling running a muck in our Law Enforcement. Police and private companies profit from the judicial process and bottom-feed off of minorities in this country. You can read about how private companies and crooked politicians have turned our Police forces on their ear in every attempt to squeeze money out of the general public at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-privatized-police-state.html
