Sup. Molina, chair: Followed by althea shaw.

Jamiel shaw: Good afternoon.

Sup. Molina, chair: Good afternoon, sir.

Of course, my name is jamiel shaw. Like anita said, we're still stuck on march the second. I still don't even believe it happened. I wake up every day three or four times a night and don't sleep anymore just thinking about my son all day, all night. And it's just consuming my life and we just don't understand the nonchalant attitude that this is no big deal and it's been two years, get over it. You know, we still don't even believe it happened.

We've had plans for my son. You know, we've -- we thought we made it, you know. He was getting ready to go to college. He was getting recruited from rutgers. He was getting recruited from pete carol gave him a tryout. Stanford was looking at him. He was really doing what he's supposed to do. Never been arrested. Wasn't in any gang. No gang database. Never suspended from school. And when you go through all this, you expect good things to happen. And when it doesn't, it really throws you, it really throws you a curve.

And when you come to people and you ask them to help us, my son was murdered on the same street that i was raised on. We moved into that house in 1970. And i was nine years old when we moved there. And my son was born, we brought him home to that same house. I played on that same street that he was murdered on. We have to walk by that spot all day long, every day. It's not fair. And what i want to ask you guys right now is just put yourself in our shoes. What would you do? What would you do if your son, you daughter, your husband, wife was walking home and they were murdered, shot dead in the street? I was there. I heard the gunshots. I ran outside to see my son laying there dead.

I still can't believe it. Bullet hole in his head. All of his blood in the street. And then we come to people every one thinks well it's not politically correct to talk about that and it's controversial. But we didn't ask for this, you know. We have people coming to our country to experience the american dream, and they're giving us an american nightmare, you know, it's a nightmare to wake up to see pictures. [applause.] to see pictures of your son in his bedroom and two years later, the same way. Shoes sitting there and his toothbrush. It is so debilitating to have to live like this and to see that no one really cares.

We know there are people who care, but no one is willing to step up. The politicians, you guys are the ones that we depend on. I'm a constituent. I pay taxes. I've been working since i was in the tenth grade. I've always tried to do the right thing. I'm not perfect, but i tried. And when we come to the people who are supposed to help us, the politicians, and you get nothing but it's too controversial because he was murdered by an illegal alien.

I mean, that's not fair to us. I have a 10-year-old son that asks me every day why did jazz have to die? And i have to hold him from crying. Everybody in my family is crying every day. No one's the same. And we feel like we're being let down because we have to fight for -- we have to fight just for our kids. You know if you would be in that same position, like i said, put yourself in that position. Picture your child laying there in the casket with the future that was just ready for him. Picture your mother, your father and you would understand where we're coming from. And if this doesn't make you want to be different or try to do something, then nothing will.

I mean we are seeing murders every day. Everyone is seeing it on tv. And what's being done? Nothing. People think it goes away with time.

Sup. Molina, chair: Mr. Shaw, do you want to start summarizing, please?

Jamiel shaw: It gets worse. I'm sorry for going over. It's just, we're dependent upon you guys to do something besides talk. We're past that. And i thank you for hearing me out. I know i went over. And just thank you again.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you, mr. Shaw. All right. We're going to stay with the one minute from this point on. Althea shaw followed by jessica corde. If i could have sydney stinnett join us as well as jim gilcrist. Ms. Shaw.

Althea shaw: My name is althea rae shaw i would ask for a little over with one minute.

Sup. Molina, chair: I'm going to ask you to stay within one minute if you could.

Althea shaw: I was wondering when they were talking about the impact release of inmates from state prison: Our supervisor walked out. I didn't even hear you ask one question. Everyone was asking questions. You went to sit down and it was like your social hour. We call your office, we are your constituents. You don't return calls. We can't get through. And then you want to -- they'll say okay, well send an email. That's not right.

I remember we talked to you before you were running for office and you said well i wouldn't want my son to be associated with something as controversial as special order 40, as if we do. And it's not right. And i believe that you guys are ignoring us. There's a way to get this on the agenda.

There's a way to talk about 287-g. There's a way to do something. But i don't believe it's right. A lot of you are saying well your case is in litigation. Well we were here in may 2008. We were not in litigation. But then it was over. Now we're investigating your case.

It's like you guys don't want to do right. And the most shocking thing for me through all of this is that we have judges giving probation and parole to criminal aliens and you guys don't want to do anything about that? That's no concern for you? Shouldn't that count? Public safety, you all said your mission is public safety.

If your mission is public safety, you guys are failing your mission. Because people are still dying on the streets. You said, ridley-thomas, well maybe i can do something with some kind of legislation. You did nothing. And you're still ignoring us. Why? Why are you ignoring us?

Sup. Molina, chair: Ms. Shaw, your time is up. Ms. Corde. Excuse me, miss shaw, ma'am, ma'am, miss shaw, miss shaw.

Althea shaw: And you wouldn't even let us ask questions, why?

Sup. Molina, chair: Miss shaw, miss shaw? Thank you. Miss corde?

Jessica corde: My son was murdered april the 17, 2009 by a minimum of 12 latino gang members. He happened to be the only black at a party.

I want to know why are there known nigger killers, because that's what they called themselves, the nigger killers. Why are there known nigger killers in our communities that we know nothing about and we're sending our kids into these communities and we're not getting a public notification of where it is and is not safe for them.

I don't know the immigration status of those people. My concern is there's a cry for justice and a cry for racial harmony. I need for us to be able to sit in place and be able to have a way to bring the division amongst these races together because the division has become very deadly.

My son was chased, beaten, shot, stabbed and robbed by a minimum of 12 gang members, 10 are in custody right now. I don't want to blame it all on gangs because nobody cares about gangs, who cares about gang members? Nobody cares about gang members but their family and their friends.

But when we're talking about racism on a level such as this, somebody has to be held accountable. They said kill the nigger, kill that nigger while they were killing my son. He was only 18 years old. He weighed 146 pounds and died at the hands of a minimum of 12 latino known gang members.

They called themselves the nigger killers. Had we known that there was an area, a geographical area where we could not have been, my son would not have been there. We lived in chino hills. He was murdered in pomona. I just want to know is there ever going to be a policy.

Sup. Molina, chair: Ms. Corde, please summarize your comments.

Jessica corde: Excuse me?

Sup. Molina, chair: Summarize your comments. Your time is up.

Jessica corde: What time is that?

Sup. Molina, chair: Just summarize your comments, ma'am.

Jessica corde: I have nothing else to say. Only god knows. God loves me.

Sup. Molina, chair: All right. Thank you. Could we ask mr. Wesley profit to join us as well as walter moore? Sydney stinnett? I'm sorry? Mr. Moore had to leave? Okay.

Sydney stinnett: I'm sydney stinnett and i'm feeling disappointed, sad and disgusted that on the two-year anniversary of the murder of jamiel shaw, ii, the board of supervisors refuses to call for an investigation of the practices regarding the release of criminals who are illegal aliens.

And i said the word illegal aliens, not illegal immigrants. There's a difference. There's no such thing as an illegal immigrant.

Jamiel's mother was in iraq protecting our country. Anita shaw was safer there than her son was here in america.

Our youth, who are legal residents of the united states, are at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to public safety.

It appears to be that this is the case. Please, please, please make jamiel's law an agenda item and better protect our youth and communities.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you. Mr. Gilcrist?

Jim gilcrist: Hi, i'm jim gilcrist, founder and president of the minute man project. We are a multiethnic, immigration law enforcement advocacy group.

First thing i want to do is thank this deputy here. Because of him we are a civilized society and tens of thousands of others like him in law enforcement in california.

I'm here to recognize with the jamiel shaw family, to recognize the second anniversary of his untimely death. Instead of being here to recognize his 19th birthday, and a kid who went from high school into rutgers college on a football scholarship, this problem of illegal immigration, illegal immigrants killing our citizens crosses all borders, all races, all colors, all creeds. And it's time it stopped.

And i would encourage you to -- my time is over. Thank you very much.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you mr. Gilcrist.
Barbara briodon? Please come on up. Miss briodin? Are you miss briodon?

Barbara briodon: I'm briodon, yes.

Sup. Molina, chair: Oh, okay.

Barbara briodon: Should i go first?

Sup. Molina, chair: Yes. Go ahead.

Barbara briodon: Okay. Chairwoman molina, supervisors and the city of angels, thank you for the opportunity to speak with you. It's regarding 287-g.

Let's use this. Sheriff baca signed this. And we need to use it so the law enforcement can do a better job protecting us. I'm here in support of the shaw family who have had to see another anniversary of their dear son, jamiel, ii murdered.

Anniversary is today march 2nd. Instead of visiting him at one of the many colleges or universities that offered him a scholarship to go to their school because he was such a good student athlete and all around remarkably decent young man and american, he has been murdered in cold blood while his mother was serving the u.s. Army in iraq.

Don't forget jamiel shaw.

Don't forget deputy match.

Deputy warren escalante, father, brother, son, public servant who was gunned down in front of his home in cyprus park, los angeles.

Don't forget the many others.

Let's get rid of the gang members, illegal aliens.

Let's protect our people.

Jamiel shaw is still dead.

That's all, you only gave me one minute.

Sup. Molina, chair: Sir, your name is?

David crowley: My name is dave crowley.

Sup. Molina, chair: Oh please, go ahead.

David crowley: I'd like to thank the supervisors for allowing me to speak today. I'm speaking on behalf of the shaw family who should not have had to go through this tragedy in the first place.

This person was paroled erroneously. He was put back out on the streets and then he killed jamiel shaw with a gun that he stole or bought on the streets.

It doesn't matter. He still bought it. He still got it. I am ashamed that nobody here has done anything about it. I'm ashamed that the city has not done anything about it, that the county has not done anything about it, and most importantly the state has not done anything about it.

I am ashamed that you call yourselves legislators, especially you since it took place in your district, mr. Ridley-thomas.

No person who has promised support has ever gotten behind this law and it's time that somebody could.

I am running for congress and if i get into congress, i will get this taken care of.

Thank you very much.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you, sir. All right.

Sup. Molina, chair: All right. Marie reeves. I'm sorry. You were marie reeves. I apologize.

Marie reeves: I'm marie reeves, and i'm here with the jamiel shaw family to help support them.

And also because i was injured 19 years ago by a nonenglish speaking person.

And i'm beginning to feel very unsafe in the country of my birth.

There's just too many things happening. And it just appears that we're not trying to do anything about it, our government.

We're supporting everybody but the american-born people.

I'm kind of tired of it.

And that's all i got to say.

We want you to help us, we're tired.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you. Mr. Annenberg.

Saul annenberg: Thank you very much. I'm saul annenberg, community activist. I am here in support of the shaw family.

I'm here to state that jamiel shaw and thousands of americans would be alive today had federal officials done their job that they were elected to do many years ago.

I'm referring here to the date of august 30, 1996. President bill clinton in his speech to the democratic national convention, you know this very well, you're all public officials. "we will say to gangs: We will break you with the same antiracketeering law we used to put mob bosses in jail. You're not going to kill our kids anymore or turn them into murderers before they're teenagers. My fellow americans, if we're going to build that bridge to the 21st century, we have to make our children free, free of the vice grip of guns and gangs and drugs, free to build lives of hope." that was bill clinton.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you, sir.
Saul annenberg: No.

Sup. Molina, chair: Well, sir, you got a minute and you read that very well. But we thank you.

Next we have mr. Mitchell.

Frank mitchell iii.: Good afternoon. I'm frank mitchell, iii here to support the jamiel shaw family.

Sup. Molina, chair: Please proceed, sir.

Frank mitchell iii: Over the years, there have been thousands of laws that have been proposed. Many of them have been passed having to do with justice and crime and public safety. The vast majority of them sounded good, but they turned out to be bad. A few of them have been good. But over the years, thousands of laws have been proposed and some enacted. A few of them have done really any good.

The proposed law of jamiel's law, that will do good. That is 100 percent common sense. There is nothing wrong with proposing a law that would allow law enforcement officers to ask gang members of their immigration status.

Translate that: There's nothing wrong with proposing a law that would prevent any public official from preventing a law enforcement officer from asking a common street criminal if he's supposed to be in this nation legally. Please enact jamiel's law.

Sup. Molina, chair: Thank you, sir.

All right that concludes public comment.

I'm going to ask our executive officer to please read us into closed session, please.
