The sanctuary policies of San Francisco have resulted in three more 100% preventable deaths. Apparently itís more important to shield illegal alien gangbangers than it is to protect law-abiding citizens.

Quote:
A known gang member charged with killing a father and two sons on a San Francisco street last month was one of the youths who apparently benefited from the city's long-standing practice of shielding illegal immigrant juveniles who committed felonies from possible deportation.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that 21-year old Edwin Ramos, who is currently being held on three counts of murder, was shielded during previous encounters with the law as part of San Francisco's sanctuary city ordinance. The city recently shifted that policy.

SF: a city that is so elitist that simply gags regular people in disgust. Its near twin is Wash DC in my eyes.

The above coming from a Wash DC native.........and, I lived near SF from 1978-80.

When did San Francisco become a separate country within the borders of the US? Since when do they think they can make laws superceding those of the US. City laws are below those of the State level. State laws are below those of the Federal Goverment. A city cannot put its nose up at Federal Laws and decide what is considered LEGAL and what is ILLEGAL within its own city limits. Steve

Just look at the whole state of CA and you will get your answer.

Not to mention many other sanctuary cities around the country.

But SF usually does...whether it is this, gay marriage, medical marijuana, and so on...SF usually beats it's own drum...

Not saying it is right...just saying this city has a history of doing so...just look at the 9th circuit court

I watched the interview with the wife and mom of the victims and I could hardly sit through it. I kept thinking it could have been my family or anyone elses for that matter. Poor woman. My heart breaks for her and what is left of San Francisco.

I watched the interview also, and it was indeed heart wrenching. I can't imagine the pain of losing a husband and two sons. Where is the outrage and compassion for these murders?

SF is still running ads that tell illegals they are safe there ( caught that on the news this afternoon and saw the interviews w/the widow this am). Their mayor is still stating they are sanctuary.

IMHO, if SF wanted to float off into the Pacific, none of the rest of the country would miss it.

Watch the economy: if things really start tanking------methinks that most sanctuary cities will have second thoughts very quickly.
