6:07 pm
is very much hidden." that's because many victims are afraid to come forward. gascon says his office also needs the mayor and board of supervisors to increase the funds for operations like the one that led to nunez's arrest. george gascon/district attorney- "you either don't care about it, or you care. if you don't care, then you're showing that by not funding it. if you care, then you fund it accordingly. you know, it's either a priority or its not." investigators believe nunez may have other victims and hope they are willing to come forward. in san francisco, philippe djegal, kron four news.
