Only press conferences, snappy slogans, and celebrity do-gooding can save us now! From a recent press release:

Rev. Jackson and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition plans to attend a call for peace at Sunday, July 8 Ella Hill Hutch Community Center Rally, 1050 McAllister St. in San Francisco at 2 p.m.

At last! A "call for peace!" Why didn't think of that? But instead of fighting crime with the most effective tools available (press conferences), the city's been wasting time deploying so-called "police officers" and conducting "community outreach" and issuing "injunctions" and "arresting gang members" and "securing convictions" -- whatever THAT means!
