The violence in Sacramento is renewing the push for action when it comes to violence, including from both lawmakers and local leaders.
San Francisco leaders and community members held a vigil and rally Tuesday in honor of the mass shooting victims.
In attendance were the police chief and district attorney.
“Hold us accountable but let’s put our priorities where they belong to save lives in this community, save lives in the city, and work hand-in-hand to do that,” said Chief Bill Scott.
There was rage directed at the city’s priorities.
“Stop protecting Union Square! Stop protecting places where violent things happen before you protect places where people are getting killed on the streets,” said Supervisor Shamann Walton.
Myeeka’s godson was one of the two people killed near the city’s Alice Chalmers playground over the weekend.
“I just buried another one last year and I’m just asking y’all please stop. This Has to stop. Just stop it, that's all I can ask to stop it,” she said.
District Attorney Chesa Boudin, who faces a recall in June, largely for not being tough enough on criminals, organized the rally.
“We are here to commit to concrete action to prevent future harm,” said Boudin.
For decades now, there have been anti-gun violence rallies and this one produced no concrete solutions but perhaps the alliance made will be enough to change things in the future.
“To our brothers and sisters who have lost loved ones, we hug you, we support you, we stand with you, we love you , we love you!” said San Francisco City Attorney David Chiu.
