 KILLING THEM SAFELY

 (San Francisco ~ Theatrical Premiere)

    Tuesday, May 31, 2016

6:30pm

Roxie Theater

3117 – 16th St.

San Francisco

Killing Them Safely, an explosive 2015 documentary film on the controversy over police use of TASERS.

Hundreds of deaths. Zero oversight. In the early 2000s Tasers were marketed to law enforcement agencies as a safe alternative to handguns. They were supposed to curb the use of deadly force – so why have over 500 people died from Taser-related injuries since?

Following the screening discussion with:

NICK BERARDINI, Filmmaker

JEFF ADACHI, San Francisco Public Defender

About the film and its implications for the upcoming decision of the San Francisco Police Commission to possibly start outfitting San Francisco Police Department officers with Tasers.

5:45pm Chalking on sidewalk of names of those whose lives have been stolen by Tasers. (outside)

Mayors Office of Housing and Mercy Housing decided to codify rent increases of 30% to 300% for long-term tenants. Our families have been under rent control protection for many decades.

These rent increases are designed to drive out working class, primarily Black famlies out of the Fillmore/Western Addition.
