MASSIVE COMMUNITY PROTEST AT SAN FRANCISCO DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE DEMANDING JUSTICE FOR MARIO WOODS

December 18, 2015 (San Francisco) – Hundreds of youth, families, community and religious leaders throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area will hold a massive rally on the steps of 850 Bryant Street in San Francisco to demand justice for the murder of Mario Woods by San Francisco Police officers. After the rally, the group will march to the offices of District Attorney, George Gascón to demand justice for Mario Woods.

In a Times.com article, John Burris, attorney for the Woods family states, “our view is that this was a person who was shot multiple times at a time when he did not put officers’ lives in imminent danger.” Attorney Burris goes on to mention that the San Francisco Police Department broadly exhibits a “continuing pattern and practice of misconduct.” Other witnesses claim police shot Mario Woods (+20) times.

The national trend of police abuse is all the more troubling in the City of San Francisco as the African American makes up 3% of the population, but continues to be disproportionately impacted by police murders and abuse.

The Justice for Mario Coalition is made up of concerned residents of San Francisco, advocates, leaders and community organizers who want to stop the trend of violence experienced by the black community in San Francisco at the hands of the police. The coalition demands are:

• The immediate removal of Police Chief Gregory Suhr
• Officers be charged with the murder of Mario Woods

Where: Hall of Justice, 850 Bryant Street, San Francisco
When: December 18, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.
Who: Hundreds of community members
What: The San Francisco and Bay Area community demand justice for the execution of Mario Woods who was killed by a firing squad.

Now you kids are too young to remember, but the Pool at Ham Rec is just like the Mario Bros. arcade game, from 1983:

Good times…

In this game, Mario is portrayed as an Italian-American plumber who, along with his brother Luigi, has to defeat creatures that have been coming from the sewers below New York. The gameplay focuses on Mario’s extermination of pests in the sewers by flipping them on their backs and kicking them away.”

8-Bit Mario Mushrooms Add Color to Otherwise Grey Sunset District

See what I mean?

Hanging Mario mushrooms about your vehicle is a good and inexpensive way to get pulled over for driving with obstructed windows. Everyone should be aware of California Vehicle Code 26708, Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View. (It’s tough. Tough but fair.) Learn it, know it, live it.

To save Princess Toadstool, Mario conquers the eight worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom by going to the castle in each to defeat a minion of King Koopa. To reach each castle, Mario battles through three “sub-worlds” by defeating or avoiding King Koopa’s henchmen. If Mario successfully fights his way through the castle and defeats the minion, a Mushroom Retaineris freed. Inside the eighth castle, Mario has a final fight with King Koopa and frees Princess Toadstool.

Don’t stop believing.
