"When asked how they would deal address violence..." Andrew's Comment: I believe I responded the way I have been throughout the campaign saying we need to take a serious look at the systematic problems that produce crime in neighborhoods like Plaza East. In SF police arrests for narcotics make up 25% of all arrests the SFPD make. African-Americans are arrested 13 times more than whites for drug crimes. This leads to criminalization of entire communities which leads to a whole range of discrimination in employment, housing, education, public benefits, etc which leads many people back into crime. And the cycle continues. My promise is to make this issue one that people will pay attention to. I will call several public hearings on this topic if I'm elected and make the police answer questions about their priorities. That's a promise."
