San Francisco Police Continue to Kill with Impunity
Community Protests DA Gascón Letting Cops Off the Hook for Murders of Mario Woods and Luis Góngora Pat
San Francisco native Mario Woods, 26, was gunned down in a hail of 20 bullets after being surrounded by officers Winson Seto, Antonio Santos, Charles August, Nicholas Cuevas and Scott Phillips on December 2, 2015. On April 7, 2016, police claimed they used deescalation techniques with Luis Góngora Pat, but the time between the first cop stepping out of the car and Luis being gunned down was less than thirty seconds. Sergeant Nate Seger and Officer Mike Mellone fired six shots, killing Luis while he was on the ground.

On May 24, former San Francisco police chief and current District Attorney George Gascón announced that he will not be filing charges against the San Francisco police officers who murdered Mario Woods in 2015 and Luis Góngora Pat in 2016. The following evening, protesters expressed their disgust with the decision by shutting down traffic at two intersections near the San Francisco Mission District police station on Valencia Street. A series of home demonstrations have also been held in front of Gascón's house.
