San Francisco Democratic Mayor, London Breed, was forced to flee her speech on rampant “crime” in her city as a violent crime took place in the crowd.
Just ten minutes into the speech, Breed had to flee the event after someone threw a brick into the crowd.
Breed and several city officials met on Tuesday in the city’s United Nations Plaza
A crowd of spectators booed the officials, while one of them threw a brick that almost hit a child, KRON4 reported.
After the disruption, the city officials stopped the meeting and continued it from inside the city hall building.
The Breed spoke about the city’s soft approach to criminals when the boos began.
The mayor declared that San Francisco tolerated “illegal, out-of-control behavior for far too long” before the violent crime took place.
“Compassion is killing people. We have to change what is happening on the streets. It’s too easy getting drugs; they are dying under our watch; we have to do better,” Breed said.
“I was born and raised in this city. I am putting everything on the line,” Breed continued.
“I am doing this job without fear of losing it. San Francisco claims to be so compassionate and liberal. People are growing up in the midst of this chaos.”
“What about them? We have tried over and over again, and what we are doing is not working. Are we going to collaborate and work toward solutions? Or are we going to let the same old thing happen over and over and over again?”
Breed’s point was then proven when a woman threw a brick and nearly hit a child.
“San Francisco Police Department officers were positioned in UN Plaza for Tuesday’s public meeting,” KRON 4 reports.
“Officers intervened after a woman threw a brick in the crowd and nearly struck a child, police said. The woman was quickly arrested and hauled away in handcuffs.”
