imperative right now is to make sure that she is able and alive to testify in these prosecutions. and we call upon every district attorney and the california attorney general to make sure that there are prosecutions, prompt, effective, remedial action is a standard of the law. it should be the standard in criminal cases as well. and there should not be a double standard. i cannot commit a crime in alameda county and get a note from the d.a. that says i committed a crime. we know you committed a crime but we'll get back to you after we know the witness is available. that's not how our criminal justice system works for most people. it should not work that way for police officers who have engaged in the most heinous violation of the public trust. our safety requires public trust. that's true, again, whether you are the officer on the street or the mayor of this city. and so we reject efforts by the
