The transparent liar Ed Lee has done it again: first by throwing elderly and disabled people of color under the bus with an unreasonably harsh policy of punishing fare evasion; and then by pretending to be a hero by agreeing with the SFMTA’s recent proposal to extend free Muni to elderly and disabled patrons as it has previously done for the city’s youth.
13 year old Lee Weathersby was the first homicide victim in the city of Oakland of 2014.
He was shot and killed on his way home from visiting a friend's home. Three weeks later, his older brother, Lamar Broussard and his best friend were also shot and killed, making the two young brothers homicides 4th and 5th.
