THE ISSUES FACING THE COMMUNITY IN THE SF MISSION, THE BAYVIEW, FILLMORE AND THE REST OF SAN FRANCISCO - CAN ONLY BE SOLVED IF ONE'S HEART IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

The recent killings and shootings did not happen in a vacuum - and folks like London Breed and Malia Cohen - may try to pacify some with money - but the bottom line is these are NOT leaders and what makes the situation worse - they are spiritually bankrupt.

There is NOT a leader that can address the situation at hand - and as I said weeks ago - it will get worse.

The Law Enforcement is shallow - they think they know it all - and each incident takes ages for them to resolve.

Violence Prevention and Intervention does not come about without sound knowledge - and the worse thing that can happen when - inept, spineless, shallow - politicians - try to address the very serious issues - as if they were licking some lollipop. 

There is only so much of pussyfooting anyone can tolerate.

These dumb politicians - do not have a sound Blue Print - to address the situation at hand.

They think that if they move money from one District to another they can bring about some solution - it is a solution alright - a band aid solution - that does not serve the community as a whole.

I have been meeting - those that once ran the streets - and now are in a position to lend a helping hand.

These warriors - many of them have done time - learned from their mistakes. They are ready to contribute - their very best to the community - and have a plan - but no one wants to listen to them - seriously.

Spending $50 million on Violence Prevention and Intervention is a lot of money - just in the Bayview Hunters Point area.

About $220 million on Violence Prevention and Intervention all over the City and County of San Francisco.

Right now the entities trying to address the situation at hand - are doing it on a fly. Failing to pay attention to - "cultural competency". We now have a diverse population - and we have had "nefarious activities" from many quarters - among them Law Enforcement.

Gentrification is the removal of people - in this case people - that once lived area - and are now considered - expandable. This is not going to happen - while some of us - comprehend the issues - and can do something about, it.

There is only so much one can do - guessing - and trying to buy influence - we need the Street Soldiers - to bring an end to this violence. More Black on Black violence - that same energy - can be used in other areas - in a more meaningful, understanding, and holistic manner.

Our infants, children, youth, and young adults - are treated as statistics - that can be handled - much as those in "power" think they can.

We have seen this coming from the Mayor's Office and folks like Olson Lee. We have seen this coming from SF Planning Department and John Rahaim. We have seen this coming from our inept, spineless, immoral - District Supervisor Malia Cohen - who talks from both sides of her - sordid mouth.

The mostly White Law Enforcement and the others are conditioned or brain washed.

They have no clue about the norms, conditions, the many evolving factors, adverse impacts - of those that are forced to survive.

Have been discriminated with intent for years, have NOT been given opportunities. Used like a dirty rag and forgotten.

The Bayview and the Fillmore have contributed for a long, long time to this City and County of San Francisco - while being in a flux and survival mode.

History has not been kind to both these areas - the short term sordid ploys and machinations of the now defunct San Francisco Redevelopment Agency - created havoc - feeding and using the sell outs - who in turn - with intent - created divisiveness - in our communties.

There are still a few good people - and with a sound plan - we can and we will take back our community.

Lennar Urban watch out - anyone who works with Lennar Urban - will have to play a price.

There are others mostly Blacks the likes of Veronica Hunnicutt, Linda Richardson, Calvin Jones, Aurelious Walker, Doris Vincent, the Southeast Community Commission Facility Building folks - Citizens Advisory Committee on the Shipyard - all proxy elements of the Mayor Edwin Lee who are on the take - and beholden to Lennar Urban - a rogue developer.

These entities that we are monitoring -  who are playing with fire - and many of us have dumped them - stop attending their fake meetings, have no respect for them and their their ploys and machinations.

Right now the Bayview Opera House is undergoing some repairs - and it is taking too much time - months on end - and too much money - millions have been spent - and there is no transparency and accountability.

That community recreational area has to be used - by our community - run by our community - not outsiders - and people who have a hidden agenda.

Our infants, children, youth, young adults are dying - from cancer, respiratory diseases, and we have City Commissions - pussyfooting with the lives of the constituents of San Francisco.

The worst Commission the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC).

The City Administrator must not be left off the hook - she knows and has the data - and if she cannot figure out about the disparities - the many hurdles ordinary people - suffer more those who make below $40,000 - then she must decide - how best not to pay lip service.

We all know that Mayor Edwin Lee has lost his mind.

You can build all the high rises -  if the people who run the restaurants, the hotels, the Managers who offer services and amenities - cannot rent or own affordable units - cannot use public transport fitting their schedules - cannot find the right workers - people will move to other cities - and thousands of skilled workers - have move out of San Francisco.

Over 20,000 families have left San Francisco and one factor oblivious to those that think they know it all is Safety. Another is Housing, Childcare, you get the picture.

There can be no sound living and development - not when we are find four shot and killed - dead.

Another body cut into pieces and dumped right by 11th Street not far from City Hall , drive by shootings - and inept politicians patting their behinds.

The same with our SF Police Commission and the ribbon cuttings that is now becoming trade mark of the Mayor of San Francisco.

There are other factors too like Transportation failures - and the worst congestion on our roads - ever seen in this City.

Lack of proper hospital care - Saint Luke's Hospital comes to mind - and SF General Hospital is a zoo. We have too many mental patients on the street and no one cares any more.

As the baby boomers age Elder Care is at a premium and not too many people can afford to spend $4000 a month.

It is the same with childcare - the pangs of people trying to shut down City College and deprive this institution that has touched thousands - and practically every family in San Francisco.

All these factor have taken a heavy toll - on many families - the long time San Franciscans - have thrown their hands up - and given up trying - to make a living in San Francisco - that is only now the paradise enjoyed by the - "filthy rich".

The patience of many San Franciscans has simply - worn out.

At Third and Quesada there is a temporary memorial to my good friend Charles Williams - take a good look - those that come to make their rounds for whatever reason - blood stains on the wall - calling and screaming for justice.

Charles was just 24 years a budding rapper and did not deserve to die - shot and killed in broad daylight.

Not a word from the District Supervisor - Malia Cohen on this case and what she has in reserve to bring about a solution.

Such leadership - betrays the trust of the youth, the young adults - and your day is coming.

Malia Cohen is a fake and her heart is somewhere else - it gravitates towards money -  taking junkets to places and influenced by nefarious entities.

She has no clue what it means to represent. She is a shame to the human race. A sell out of the highest order.
