"Why do you have all of your kids? We took them all from you before?" a San Leandro Police Officer spoke roughly to Elsa Maldonado.

Confused and shocked, Elsa watched as the police officers put handcuffs on her husband and wrongly accused him of a crime he didn't commit.

"No one has ever taken away my family before. Get those handcuffs off of my husband he didn't do anything wrong!" she screamed while her husband tried again and again to explain that he didn't know who "Monica" was or why the police were arresting him.

"The goal of this initiative is to breed widespread fear and panic among the public. It relies heavily on law enforcement strategies and incarceration as a means to promote public safety. This Prop 6 is resurrecting failed crime polices from the past in effort to promote the prison industrial complex."

Prop 6 is a proposed ballot initiative called the "Safe Neighborhoods Act" which is a "gang injunctions" gentrification tool that is aimed at youth in communities of color.

I awake everyday, even up here, to watch, listen, and secure you. I don't care what day you are due up here with me, mom, for I've always heard you cry, before and after they took me. I'm never leaving you, as we are bonded for eternity.

At his funeral, Idriss was eulogized as "Our Shaman" by the Dean of Students of SF Healds College, Mr. Patrick Hutchinson. Idriss counseled many fellow students, among them a single dad (who was suicidal), who said at the funeral mass that Idriss saved his life. These were just some of Idriss Stelley' success stories," his mother told me, a proud smile on her lips, as we continued our interview on the life and death of her son.
