Hi everyone! Tuning in from Oakland, CA.
Thomas Lee

SF Portola resident checking in from vacation in Mammoth!
Mark Tonwa
41:58
Kathleen please mute :)
Pat Plude
51:25
Hi Everyone - SF West Portal resident, tuning in from New Hampshire!
Mark Tonwa
54:19
Hi Pat! I guess it turns out you can get there from here!!!
Renee DiResta
01:00:22
All of this inheriting...and yet George Gascon got elected in LA
Renee DiResta
01:00:26
Yikes.
Raymond
01:04:06
Auto burglary is down that’s hard to believe….
Mark Tonwa
01:04:34
According to sfpd dashboard..
Sheila Tully
01:04:35
It is a fact if you look at the stats…
Mark Tonwa
01:05:27
It’s the Chronicle.
Ralph Lane
01:06:39
Chronicle + Nextdoor + opportunistic reactionaries = recall
Renee DiResta
01:06:52
Fed up residents = recall
Mark Tonwa
01:08:50
Yeah I think you’re right Renee- it’s strange the residents aren’t fed up with the police who have historic low arrest rates or fed up with the Mayor, they’re fed up with a progressive prosecutor.. I think that’s the NExtDoor/Chronicle root cause that Ralph is suggesting.
Renee DiResta
01:09:42
If only they read 48 Hills.
Sheila Tully
01:13:03
In CA the recall is what you turn to when you do not like the election results. In other states, voters need to wait for the next election to vote out elected.
Renee DiResta
01:13:19
Nice that our constitution lets us save that wasted time.
Mark Tonwa
01:13:41
Our constitution lets rich people overturn election results when the elections turn out the wrong way.
Renee DiResta
01:14:12
Recalls ARE democratic elections this is cringey.
Mark Tonwa
01:15:08
Recalls seem democratic but they have unlimited campaign finance limits..
john.lewis
01:15:11
What's the bullphone user saying?
Renee DiResta
01:15:30
20 states allow recalls. "Something something Trump" is not a serious argument.
Ram (operator)
01:15:44
Sorry for the sound interference happening outside.
Renee DiResta
01:15:48
what's happening?
Thomas Lee
01:16:01
Sounds like someone is outside with a bullhorn
Susan Pfeifer
01:17:03
The Republicans complain about “cancel culture”. Have we morphed into “recall culture”?
Mark Tonwa
01:19:53
129k voters ranked Chesa in Nov 2019- if there’s a recall with comparable 40% turnout and 101k voters successfully recall Boudin, that seems pretty anti-democratic..
Renee DiResta
01:20:25
like Shaun King or different?
Pankaj Agarwal
01:23:23
Question: What about those of us that are concerned about the victims of crime, more than the perpetrators? You speak about how you’re helping criminals. What about us victims?
Mark Tonwa
01:24:19
Pankaj: Boudin was talking about that at the beginning, extending victim services
Mark Tonwa
01:25:02
Clearing rape kit backlog, extending victim services to victims of police attacks.. couldn’t make out the rest of it
Raymond
01:26:15
Curious the percentage of Democrats sign up on the recall.
Susan Pfeifer
01:26:23
Retailers often don’t even report the thefts because they have insurance to cover their losses.
Andrea Gonzalez
01:26:40
@Raymond: 41%
Raymond
01:26:58
Prop 47…. Revolving door for low street crimes
Mark Tonwa
01:26:58
andrea: where are you seeing that number?
Andrea Gonzalez
01:27:16
Just saw it on the recall website
Andrea Gonzalez
01:27:23
Was also curious
Mark Tonwa
01:27:25
I don’t think there’s a way to verify what percentage of recall signers are democrats until the signatures have been turned into dept of elections- otherwise it’s just press release from recall website, no independent verification
Raymond
01:27:34
Thanks Andrea!
Jamie D
01:27:46
Target keeps closing earlier and earlier due to theft
Mark Tonwa
01:27:49
Also there’s no place for “party preference” on the recall petition so they’re really just guessing?
Renee DiResta
01:28:13
no, it's the 29 people who signed on to spearhead the effort. that's not the signatories.
Mark Tonwa
01:28:22
Oh I see thanks renee
Mark Tonwa
01:29:39
SF is 62% democratic, 27% no party preference according to sos https://elections.cdn.sos.ca.gov/ror/123day-gen-2020/historical-reg-stats.pdf
Mark Tonwa
01:30:39
Thank you for expanding victim services DA Boudin! Finally some real meat.
Mackenzie Dancho
01:33:41
Used to!
Raymond
01:34:21
My question to Chesa, what is he doing to lower/prevent Asian hate crime in the city of San Francisco
Andrea Gonzalez
01:34:53
<3
Mark Tonwa
01:36:24
Raymond: I thought this was helpful looking at the data of Asian hate crimes: https://stopasianhate.medium.com/what-the-media-gets-wrong-about-anti-asian-hate-369656a98684
Susan Pfeifer
01:38:18
Question: Republicans complain about the so-called “Cancel Culture”. Have we now entered into the “Recall Culture”. There are 3 difference petitions circulating: SF School Board; SF DA; CA Gov.
Raymond
01:38:29
Thanks Mark, but I would like Chesa to answer my question…
Mark Tonwa
01:38:43
Got it Raymond, me too :)
Jamie D
01:39:37
👏👏👏
Pankaj Agarwal
01:44:01
Chesa, how about home incarceration for all the people you don’t want to incarcerate? Won’t that be a deterrent to committing crime/recidivism?
Pankaj Agarwal
01:47:42
I thought Ram was moderating online attendees :(
Susan Pfeifer
