SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The attacks on San Francisco and other cities with similar immigration policies began moments after a jury acquitted a Mexican man of killing a woman on a popular pier, some calling for a boycott of the city that fiercely defends its reputation as a refuge for all.
President Donald Trump called the verdict a "complete travesty of justice," and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions demanded cities like San Francisco scrap immigration policies that bar cooperation with federal deportation efforts.
Twitter users turned to the hashtags #BoycottSanFrancisco and #kateswall to demand construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall that Trump has called for. Conservative politicians and celebrities such as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and actor James Woods lambasted the city as unsafe.

There is absolutely NOTHING that justifies their behavior. This was an open insult and outrage to all American citizens and legal guests. The message is clear. San Francisco must be subdued.
The OJ trial was about racism. This jury was no different. First degree might have been a stretch. Incompetence.
Cut off all federal funds and cooperation.
Wasn’t much of a refuge for Kate though...
Not racism. It was a middle finger at Trump. Good luck finding anyone in the judicial area of that court who was even neutral with regards to politics.
Refuge for scoundrels to persecute good people. Cue the liberals who wanted to lynch Zimmerman over Trayvon Martin now claim the reasonable doubt arguement.
I am glad we have presumption of innocence but I doubt San Francisco applies it but when politically convenient. I am not setting foot down there. What a hell hole..
If tomorrow I “accidentally” shot my neighbors with a gun stolen from a cop, or, “worse”, my own gun, I would be hung by the antigun crowd.
So it is not Ok in liberal lands to shoot with your own gun, but fine to steal one from a cop...
“Cut off all federal funds and cooperation.”
Remember the courts? I believe one Federal Court has already ruled against the President on this.
Incompetent or planned? I would consider this was the Prosecutor’s agenda, who represents the State plan from the beginning. Over charge and get a not guilty verdict
Yeah, but she was white and a taxpayer, probably hetrosexual or a Christian too. Worse yet, she was a citizen, she has the right to remain silent... Forever...
What is “urope?”
The only citizens that think this crap is a good idea are politicians in deep blue states (and Utah), where they prey on voters' ignorance and realization that they'll vote Democratic no matter what. I'm convinced if people got to vote on sanctuary cities and driver's licenses for illegals directly through ballot referendum, even in deep blue places like California, they'd reject it, like Oregon did with Measure 88.
“I would consider this was the Prosecutors agenda, who represents the State plan from the beginning. Over charge and get a not guilty verdict.”
It really does seem that way.
Stay out of San Francisco - I thought it was unsafe well before this happened.
You are totally correct in my opinion. This was meant to happen from the Mayor and through to the DA’s office. The prosecutors had no desire for a conviction to stick this in Trump’s eye. Not that any of the people in that city would not fantasize over, but they are going to get it so badly that K-Y will be no help.
using a life for a political agenda
That wasn't the original report as I remember it...
The gun was stolen from a law enforcement officer's car. By the time the case got to the courtroom, the defense claimed that the animal tripped over the weapon just lying in the street and it accidentally just went off...
Hussein ignored the Courts.
Trump can ignore the Courts.
It's not rocket science.
Attention white people...Illegal Mexicans can murder you or your kids.....DON’T COME TO CALIFORNIA......STAY AWAY..You can be murdered and if an illegal Mexican does it,they will get away Scott free....By the way,California democrats have told all minority groups in California,as long as they steal ONLY 950.00 worth of your stuff,no big deal.....WHITE PEOPLE,YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.....
