Alleged San Francisco gang members may associate with one another publicly under a civil injunction that bans such behavior in one neighborhood if they are in church, school or if three or fewer of them are participating publicly in an anti-drug, anti-gang or anti-crime program, or in a church- or city-run charitable activity, according to a decision issued in San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday. Judge Peter Busch finally granted the controversial injunction against the Oakdale Mob gang after hearing proposals from both the City Attorney’s Office and the opposition on how to word the ban on gang members associating in public.
Mayor Gavin Newsom will appoint District 4 Supervisor-elect Ed Jew on Tuesday to fill the seat vacated by Fiona Ma, according to the Mayor’s Office.
Ma must officially vacate her seat Monday when she is sworn in to serve as the 12th District Assemblywoman.
The appointment will allow Jew, who was elected to the Board of Supervisors on Nov. 7, to participate in the two December board meetings. Otherwise, Jew’s term would have begun in January.
