i'm homeless in san francisco right now. i've been homeless since december of 2018. i've made numerous police reports. i've been harmed numerous of times by staff in the shelters. the police have did me no justice. i've went to the city attorney, i've went to the d.p.a. it's just plain corruption. it's five police officers that don't want to take a police report, made false statements in my police report. didn't want me to file a police report and just was lying. i liked when miss taylor said they wanted to take a look at
the shelters. every morning, i walk-through t.l. and encourage them, tell them to get up, all to -- it's numerous of stuff that whatever hsoc and all of them is talking about, i just called the police yesterday in front of walgreens and had the police come up and pick a lady that was laying on the ground. sometimes i just do field work all day and call 911, can you please get this person up, can you please -- so i don't know what they talking about. every day, i'm in the tenderloin. whatever salary they getting, they know me down there. they know me really well. so i think you guys should look up all my police reports, go to d.p.a., and ask someone that's working in the shelters that's harming, it was a 26-year-old
girl that sprayed chemicals in a 66-year-old's face this morning. >> president hirsch: thank you. any other public comment -- general public comment? >> my name is john jones. may my remarks please the commission. about two years ago, i was getting on a 14 mission bus at the corner of geneva and mission, and all of a sudden, i heard this scream, a woman scream. and i looked around, and there was a chinese woman in the back holding a very well cared for child, and three black teenagers were running off the bus. i came face-to-face with one of the teenagers, and he was
smiling. apparentl apparently, one of them had just ripped a cell phone out of the woman's hand. now, the witness to that was five chinese men sitting in the back of the bus. my impression was that chai necessary have very tight families. i could run through the numbers, but my estimate is that 3,000 separate individuals heard a full recounting of that crime and the effect upon that woman. you cannot buy that kind of bad publicity. it's stupid. for a $25 cell phone, you alienate all those people? that's one fact in all this crime that we talk about that doesn't get emphasized, the effect it has on others, particularly others of different races. thank you. >> president hirsch: thank you. any other public comment? >> i'd like to use the overhead
again. i'm trying to start it. wait a minute. >> president hirsch: we need you to talk into the mic, though. >> i'm trying to start my video, so could you -- so -- wait a minute. sorry. just a second. i think it's ready now. so -- oh, here we go. >> 12 years after his son was -- her son was shot and killed in san francisco, tonight, she's still pleading for answers and hoping a huge reward will lead to an arrest. our crime reporter has the story. >> i'm here. this is the 12 year.
i'm back again. >> it's a sad summer ritual, paulette brown, pleading with san francisco police after her only son was shot and killed back in 2006. >> i was told back when it happened, it's going to get easier, but it doesn't. i can deal with it. i'm functioning. i work -- i do everything that i need to do, but this pain never, never ends. >> on august 14, 2006, 17-year-old aubrey aberkacen approached several gang members. police say aubrey wasn't a gang member, but he yelled at his friends to run, and they shot him in the back for this. like she does each year, she passes out fliers, hoping someone will be brave enough to
come forward. san francisco police say a $250,000 reward remains in effect. >> i know it's been 12 years, i know it's been a long time, but if we can solve a case from the golden state killer that goes back for decades, we can solve one that's 12 years old. >> i can't believe he's been gone 12 years and nothing's happened. >> aubrey's mother and the police say if you have any information, call police. >> so i'm saying august 14 of this month will be his anniversary, and i'm looking for you guys to come -- i'm having media coverage on grove and baker. steve -- david stevenson has already given me the flier to pass out to faith-based people. i'm hoping that coming here for
all these years that you guys would accompany me and stand with us concerning unsolved homicides and mothers and fathers who lost their children to homicide so maybe some way we can heal. >> president hirsch: thank you. >> i would like to see you there. >> president hirsch: the tip line is 415-475-5555. any other public comment? next item? [agenda item read]. >> president hirsch: is there any public comment on us going into closed session? all right. seeing none, public comment is closed. next item. >> clerk: line item nine, vote on whether to hold item ten in closed session, including vote on whether to assert the attorney-client privilege with regard to item 10-a, san francisco administrative code
section 67.10, action. >> president hirsch: is there a motion? >> so moved. >> second. >> president hirsch: all in >> clerk: commissioner hirsch, we are back on record in open session. you still have a quorum. line item 11, vote to discuss any or all items held in closed session pursuant to section 57.12 a. >> move not to disclose. >> second. >> all in favor? >> clerk: item 12, adjournm t adjournment. >> president hirsch: is there a motion? >> move to adjourn. >> second. >> president hirsch: all in favor? [gavel]
>> all right. good morning, everybody. is this working? what a beautiful day in san francisco. you know, if you go to city hall, it is so packed. everybody is celebrating 8-8. we're here and going to be celebrating this new project. i am the director of public works here at the city of san francisco. i want to thank you all for
coming out our chief and mayor for coming to celebrate this milestone. this facility will be a facility that will serve our first responders and we are very excited about it. just last week around the corner we celebrated the new deployment facility and that is a project that will be completed in 2021. that project also is going really well. then today we are celebrating another capital infrastructure project here in the bayview. this job is not only about serving our first responders, but will also give a lot of people from the community jobs. it will be able to give a lot of our contractors an opportunity to participate in bringing
supplies. of course make our city more resilient. it's also been one of several projects that the southeast sector of our city has been benefitting from. just in the last two years or so we finished the medical examiner's building, the two shops for large and small vehicles are right around the corner. coming up soon is the new southeast community center. so a lot of good opportunities here, and it's great that the partnership that we have with all the contractors and all the city departments, that we're all working together to really improve san francisco. as you all know, today is very, very special because it's the traffic company and forensic services division that will be in this site. the building itself is going to be over 100,000 square feet and 100,000 square feet is huge. it's two storeys as you can see. more than three quarters of this lot will be a building with a
two-storey building. we're invited about that. inside the building will be many labs that would be used to help solve crimes. also our motorcycle police department, they will have their vehicles here but we'll also have offices for them so that they can do their administrative duties, which is highly essential because now they're spread all over the place. this building will change that. this building will also be a high-tech building. our crews have been working very hard. as you see this pile of dirt behind us, right after this ground breaking, next week we'll be levelling it out. all that dirt actually is going to be on site here. this area is a little bit of a low land, so we're going to be increasing it by 2 or 3 feet high. so we're keeping the dirt.
we're recycling. as you know, our city leads the nation in recycling. we're following a lot of the building technologies. with that said, the team that has been working on this, i would like to say a huge thanks to clark construction, our architects, h.o.k. and m.i.i. have been on this contract. some of our subcontractors, i just want to say thank you because this new facility will make san francisco much safer and put us into the 21st century building. isn't that a great opportunity? [ applause ]. >> i can -- there's a lot i can say because i'm excited about this building because i personally have worked in this area for over 30 years. the public works department yard is just up the street. so every day we see these changes. we're very excited. in the capital plan the mayor is
putting money for us to look at more opportunities to do more projects here. with that said, i would like to call her to say a few words and thank her for our leadership. our city is changing in the right direction. let's call mayor breed and give her a big hand. mayor breed. [ applause ]. >> mayor breed: thank you. mohamed is really excited about this project, isn't he? he's always excited about projects that move the city forward in the right direction. san francisco is in earthquake territory. and it's not a matter of if but when the next big one will be prepared. so we have to be prepared. more importantly, we have to make sure that our public safety officials are in seismically safe facilities so that when they're trying to help the citizens of san francisco, they don't necessarily need help themselves. we know that the traffic
division and the forensic services division are located in buildings that are not seismically safe. especially with the traffic division and motorcycles and their need to get to people and help protect people throughout san francisco, that's going to be critical. if we have a next earthquake and something happens, how are they going to get their motorcycles out? we have to start thinking about the future and ways to protect all of our citizens, especially making sure that our public safety officials from the police and the fire department and other departments can get out there on the streets and protect and save lives. this project, along with so many other amazing projects that we've done in this city, we're headed in the right direction. the new public safety building that just opened in mission bay is absolutely incredible. the medical examiner building that just open not too far from here is amazing.
station 49, the firefighters are going to get a new state-of-the-art building. we just cut the ribbon on station 5 and 21 for the fire department to make sure that our first responders have seismically safe buildings that are just really outstanding and worthy of san francisco. now, moving forward in the capital plan finally, after the voters approved a 2014 ether bond, we are finalley here breaking ground, ready to get this building built, not only by 2021 but also on budget, right mohamed? on budget. i don't see many claps for on budget. so i just want to thank everyone who's here today with us to celebrate this milestone and just raise the profile of how significant it is to get these projects done.
in fact, the voters have been really generous because through the work of the capital plan and under the leadership of our city administrator, we've been able to bring the bond for these projects forward to the voters in a responsible way, without raising property taxes. i know they usually love that. which is why in march of next year, we'll be bringing forward another bond to continue the great work that we're doing to make all of our buildings seismically safe throughout san francisco. this is a great step in the right direction. i want to thank d.p.w. and the capital planning committee and all the contractors and people that are going to make sure that this is not only a beautiful building, but one of the most environmentally friendly buildings and it will be a safe, great place for so many people who serve our city day in and day out to work. i'm looking forward to it.
i'm sure these guys behind me can't wait to use a nice bathroom for a change in a great facility. with that, i want to take this opportunity to introduce the supervisor for this district, supervisor walton. >> thank you so much, madam mayor. first of all, good afternoon and welcome to district 10. you're actually in a place that is going to be very well protected in the future in san francisco. as the mayor mentioned, we have crime lab out here now in the district. we're going to have -- keep your fingers crossed everything goes according to plan our evidence facility. naturally we have the traffic company and forensic division that is coming right here. our district is going to be well protected, which is exciting for us. any time we can have brand new community gems that are going to be in our district, we get excited about that.
so i want to thank everyone for coming out here today. i want to thank the commitment from the voters. thank the mayor for her commitment and dedication to district 10. i want to of course thank mohamed who is a constituent here in district 10 and who worked very hard to make sure that we have the opportunity to bring facilities like this here into the district. i want to thank the chief for his partnership on all the work and for looking at district 10 as a place where we can bring state-of-the-art 21st century facilities to the district so our police and law enforcement can be a staple in the community. we're all excited that this will be here in 2021 and we look forward to all the seismically safe opportunities we're providing here in district 10. thank you all for coming to the district and thank you for being here this morning. [ applause ]. >> okay. and now let's hear from the
chief of police, bill scott. he is a big partner with public works every day, 24/7, all of the partnership we have with the police department, thank you for everything that you do to support public works. thank you for everything you do for our city. welcome, chief scott. >> thank you, mohamed, and thank you for your partnership. first of all, i have a lot of people to thank here. mayor breed, your leadership and commitment to this police department and city is just off the charts. this is a long time coming and it took vision. it took commitment. i just want to thank everybody who made this happen, beginning with the mayor and the director, all the contractors that will take part in this. the officers that are standing here behind me and onto the sides, this is for them. these are the frontline people that do the work. they keep our city safe and they deserve seismically safe
facilities and facilities that are state-of-the-art as stated. we thank you for appreciating our work and your gratitude for voting to allow this to happen. this facility will not only move our department into the future, but through the advanced services that have been built into this project, we will be better able to serve our city. it will be seismically safe. our employees will be able to respond to major emergencies quickly and efficiently. and as supervisor walton said this part of the city is excited to have us here, and we really appreciate that. our crime lab will be fully modernized to accommodate evolving technologies and employ sound scientific principles to process data. at the end of the day this is about keeping our community safe. we thank everybody for making this happen. our elected leader, the voters, the architect, the engineers, the consultants. finally, we thank you, the people of our city again for
allowing us to be here and making this happen. thank you. [ applause ]. >> okay. we're going to go over to where the shovels are and we will throw a little dirt and then these contractors can get back to work. right? all right. [♪] >> all right. thank you all for coming. we really appreciate it. this building is going to be ready in 2021. [♪]
my name is doctor ellen moffett, i am an assistant medical examiner for the city and county of san francisco. i perform autopsy, review medical records and write reports. also integrate other sorts of testing data to determine cause and manner of death. i have been here at this facility since i moved here in
november, and previous to that at the old facility. i was worried when we moved here that because this building is so much larger that i wouldn't see people every day. i would miss my personal interactions with the other employees, but that hasn't been the case. this building is very nice. we have lovely autopsy tables and i do get to go upstairs and down stairs several times a day to see everyone else i work with. we have a bond like any other group of employees that work for a specific agency in san francisco. we work closely on each case to determine the best cause of death, and we also interact with family members of the diseased. that brings us closer together also. >> i am an investigator two at the office of the chief until examiner in san francisco. as an investigator here i investigate all manners of death
that come through our jurisdiction. i go to the field interview police officers, detectives, family members, physicians, anyone who might be involved with the death. additionally i take any property with the deceased individual and take care and custody of that. i maintain the chain and custody for court purposes if that becomes an issue later and notify next of kin and make any additional follow up phone callsness with that particular death. i am dealing with people at the worst possible time in their lives delivering the worst news they could get. i work with the family to help them through the grieving process. >> i am ricky moore, a clerk at the san francisco medical examiner's office. i assist the pathology and toxicology and investigative team around work close with the families, loved ones and funeral
establishment. >> i started at the old facility. the building was old, vintage. we had issues with plumbing and things like that. i had a tiny desk. i feet very happy to be here in the new digs where i actually have room to do my work. >> i am sue pairing, the toxicologist supervisor. we test for alcohol, drugs and poisons and biological substances. i oversee all of the lab operations. the forensic operation here we perform the toxicology testing for the human performance and the case in the city of san francisco. we collect evidence at the scene. a woman was killed after a robbery homicide, and the dna collected from the zip ties she
was bound with ended up being a cold hit to the suspect. that was the only investigative link collecting the scene to the suspect. it is nice to get the feedback. we do a lot of work and you don't hear the result. once in a while you heard it had an impact on somebody. you can bring justice to what happened. we are able to take what we due to the next level. many of our counterparts in other states, cities or countries don't have the resources and don't have the beautiful building and the equipmentness to really advance what we are doing. >> sometimes we go to court. whoever is on call may be called out of the office to go to various portions of the city to investigate suspicious deaths. we do whatever we can to get our job done. >> when we think that a case has
a natural cause of death and it turns out to be another natural cause of death. unexpected findings are fun. >> i have a prior background in law enforcement. i was a police officer for 8 years. i handled homicides and suicides. i had been around death investigation type scenes. as a police officer we only handled minimal components then it was turned over to the coroner or the detective division. i am intrigued with those types of calls. i wondered why someone died. i have an extremely supportive family. older children say, mom, how was your day. i can give minor details and i have an amazing spouse always willing to listen to any and all details of my day.
without that it would be really hard to deal with the negative components of this job. >> being i am a native of san francisco and grew up in the community. i come across that a lot where i may know a loved one coming from the back way or a loved one seeking answers for their deceased. there are a lot of cases where i may feel affected by it. if from is a child involved or things like that. i try to not bring it home and not let it affect me. when i tell people i work at the medical examiners office. whawhat do you do? the autopsy? i deal with the a with the enou- with the administrative and the families. >> most of the time work here is very enjoyable. >> after i started working with
dead people, i had just gotten married and one night i woke up in a cold sweat. i thought there was somebody dead? my bed. i rolled over and poked the body. sure enough, it was my husband who grumbled and went back to sleep. this job does have lingering effects. in terms of why did you want to go into this? i loved science growing up but i didn't want to be a doctor and didn't want to be a pharmacist. the more i learned about forensics how interested i was of the perfect combination between applied science and criminal justice. if you are interested in finding out the facts and truth seeking to find out what happened, anybody interested in that has a place in this field. >> being a woman we just need to go for it and don't let anyone
fail you, you can't be. >> with regard to this position in comparison to crime dramas out there, i would say there might be some minor correlations. let's face it, we aren't hollywood, we are real world. yes we collect evidence. we want to preserve that. we are not scanning fingerprints in the field like a hollywood television show. >> families say thank you for what you do, for me that is extremely fulfilling. somebody has to do my job. if i can make a situation that is really negative for someone more positive, then i feel like i am doing the right thing for the city of san francisco. >> growing up in san francisco has been way safer than growing up other places we we have that bubble, and it's still that
bubble that it's okay to be whatever you want to. you can let your free flag fry he -- fly here. as an adult with autism, i'm here to challenge people's idea of what autism is. my journey is not everyone's journey because every autistic child is different, but there's hope. my background has heavy roots in the bay area. i was born in san diego and adopted out to san francisco when i was about 17 years old. i bounced around a little bit here in high school, but i've always been here in the bay.
we are an inclusive preschool, which means that we cater to emp. we don't turn anyone away. we take every child regardless of race, creed, religious or ability. the most common thing i hear in my adult life is oh, you don't seem like you have autism. you seem so normal. yeah. that's 26 years of really, really, really hard work and i think thises that i still do. i was one of the first open adoptions for an lgbt couple. they split up when i was about four. one of them is partnered, and one of them is not, and then my biological mother, who is also a lesbian. very queer family. growing up in the 90's with a queer family was odd, i had the bubble to protect me, and here, i felt safe. i was bullied relatively infrequently. but i never really felt isolated or alone.
i have known for virtually my entire life i was not suspended, but kindly asked to not ever bring it up again in first grade, my desire to have a sex change. the school that i went to really had no idea how to handle one. one of my parents is a little bit gender nonconforming, so they know what it's about, but my parents wanted my life to be safe. when i have all the neurological issues to manage, that was just one more to add to it. i was a weird kid. i had my core group of, like, very tight, like, three friends. when we look at autism, we characterize it by, like, lack of eye contact, what i do now is when i'm looking away from the camera, it's for my own comfort. faces are confusing. it's a lack of mirror neurons in your brain working properly
to allow you to experience empathy, to realize where somebody is coming from, or to realize that body language means that. at its core, autism is a social disorder, it's a neurological disorder that people are born with, and it's a big, big spectrum. it wasn't until i was a teenager that i heard autism in relation to myself, and i rejected it. i was very loud, i took up a lot of space, and it was because mostly taking up space let everybody else know where i existed in the world. i didn't like to talk to people really, and then, when i did, i overshared. i was very difficult to be around. but the friends that i have are very close. i click with our atypical kiddos than other people do. in experience, i remember when i was five years old and not
wanting people to touch me because it hurt. i remember throwing chairs because i could not regulate my own emotions, and it did not mean that i was a bad kid, it meant that i couldn't cope. i grew up in a family of behavioral psychologists, and i got development cal -- developmental psychology from all sides. i recognize that my experience is just a very small picture of that, and not everybody's in a position to have a family that's as supportive, but there's also a community that's incredible helpful and wonderful and open and there for you in your moments of need. it was like two or three years of conversations before i was like you know what? i'm just going to do this, and i went out and got my prescription for hormones and started transitioning medically, even though i had already been living as a male.
i have a two-year-old. the person who i'm now married to is my husband for about two years, and then started gaining weight and wasn't sure, so i we went and talked with the doctor at my clinic, and he said well, testosterone is basically birth control, so there's no way you can be pregnant. i found out i was pregnant at 6.5 months. my whole mission is to kind of normalize adults like me. i think i've finally found my calling in early intervention, which is here, kind of what we do. i think the access to irrelevant care for parents is intentionally confusing. when i did the procespective search for autism for my own child, it was confusing. we have a place where children
can be children, but it's very confusing. i always out myself as an adult with autism. i think it's helpful when you know where can your child go. how i'm choosing to help is to give children that would normally not be allowed to have children in the same respect, kids that have three times as much work to do as their peers or kids who do odd things, like, beach therapy. how do -- speech therapy. how do you explain that to the rest of their class? i want that to be a normal experience. i was working on a certificate and kind of getting think early childhood credits brefore i started working here, and we did a section on transgender inclusion, inclusion, which is a big issue here in san francisco because we attract lots of queer families, and the teacher approached me and said i don't really feel comfortable or qualified to talk about this
from, like, a cisgendered straight person's perspective, would you mind talking a little bit with your own experience, and i'm like absolutely. so i'm now one of the guest speakers in that particular class at city college. i love growing up here. i love what san francisco represents. the idea of leaving has never occurred to me. but it's a place that i need to fight for to bring it back to what it used to be, to allow all of those little kids that come from really unsafe environments to move somewhere safe. what i've done with my life is work to make all of those situations better, to bring a little bit of light to all those kind of issues that we're still having, hoping to expand into a little bit more of a resource center, and this resource center would be more those new parents who have gotten that diagnosis, and we want to be this one centralized place that allows parents to breathe for a second. i would love to empower from the bottom up, from the kid
level, and from the top down, from the teacher level. so many things that i would love to do that are all about changing people's minds about certain chunts, like the transgender community or the autistic community. i would like my daughter to know there's no wrong way to go through life. everybody experiences pain and grief and sadness, and that all of those things are temporary. together we can support your children. it's been my dream to start is a valley school since i was a little girl. i'm having a lot of fun with it (clapping)
the biggest thing we really want the kids to have fun. a lot of times parents say that valley schools have a lot of problems but we want them to follow directions but we want them to have a wonderful time and be an affordable time so the kids will go to school here. we hold the classes to no longer 12 and there's 23 teachers. i go around and i watch each class and there's certain children i watched from babies and it's exciting to see them after today. the children learn how to follow
directions and it ends up helping them in their regular schooling. they get self-confidents and today, we had a residual and a lot of time go on stage and i hope they get the bug and want to dance for the rest of their (clapping.) the airport it where i know to mind visions of traffic romance and excitement and gourmet can you limousine we're at san francisco inspirational airport to discover the award-winning concession that conspiracies us
