this episode is no longer available

In a unanimous vote on Tuesday, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors approved a day of remembrance for Mario Woods, the 26-year-old Bayview resident who was shot and killed by San Francisco police on Dec. 2, 2015. The day will be observed in the city on July 22nd, which is Woods’ birthday. In addition, Supervisor David Campos , the author of the resolution, said it was intended to honor others recently killed in officer-involved shootings,including Alex Nieto and Amilcar Perez-Lopez.

We speak with Raptivist Sellassie about last night’s San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors meeting.

And later we talk about D.I.R.T Festival 2016, Dance in Revolting Times.

    A knife wielding felon who slashed a total stranger for no reason and committed suicide by cop. I truly hope we can all get behind such a hero….I pray my son grows up to be just like the American Hero Mario Woods…..What an f-ing joke
