Bloody Gang Fight Breaks Out At Richmond City Hall

RICHMOND (CBS SF) – A bloody fistfight broke out among rival gang members at Richmond City Hall on Friday, according to police.

Seven men from different parts of the city brawled in a third-floor suite that houses the city’s Office of Neighborhood Safety around 12:30 p.m. Friday, department director Devone Boggan said.

He said all of the men involved in the melee are enrolled in the office’s “Operation Peacemaker” fellowship and happened to show up at the office at Richmond’s Civic Center at the same time unexpectedly.

The fight stemmed from an “exchange of looks” and heated words after the men spotted each other, Boggan said.

Police have so far been unable to locate any of the men involved, and have few details about what happened, Lt. Bisa French said Tuesday.

The Police Department received several 911 calls from City Hall reporting the fight, and found blood splattered across the office where the fight happened, which is located above council chambers.

Boggan said one of the gang members in the fight suffered a broken nose, which was the source of much of the blood found in his office.

The ONS director said he sees the unarmed brawl as a sign of progress, since the young men involved all have a history of gun violence.

“They decided to pick their fists up instead of a gun,” Boggan said. “Everyone got up and walked away—not one mother has to bury their child this week.”

He said he does not believe Friday’s altercation will lead to more serious violence, and that he and other ONS staff plan to meet with all seven of the men involved in an effort to mediate the conflict.

Boggan said the men who fought one other at City Hall on Friday are all between the ages of 20 and 25, and are receiving ongoing mental health and anger management treatment.

      These people are self-absorbed, self-consumed, and born without souls. They are the 99% of the sludge that comes out of AFDC, food stamps, and instruction devoid of any greater catechism than….”I want”….

      It is a shame that the turle of the circular firing squad did not take place. These are the producers of the concept of “baby mother” and the sooner their testicles cease fundtioning, the better. They are lower than animals.

    2. David from San Diego says:

      @pravitouring:
      Did you mean “turle” as on the knot? Your prose is beautiful, by the way. And I fully agree that people should need a license to procreate … They should be able to show literacy, absence of drug addition, gainful employment, and a plan to support their proposed child. Too bad it will never happen.

  1. Sam Mallory says:

    haha these fools mothers are jokes anyways and should never have bred in the first place. I love how American voters have become soft while non voters are violent and accept all this. Pathetic people. Sorry the hood is still the hood and if you are still proud of your upbringing at the age of 25+ you have not learned anything.

  2. Dave says:

    Why were members of rival gangs in the same office? What moron put that meeting together?

    1. DanDDiver says:

      This is the same guy that proposed we sell guns to Mexican drug cartels, then track the guns after they’ve killed.

      Stupid Democrats.

      If obama’s jobs bill would have been passed, Richmond would have had the money to hire a booking secretary. It is all Bush’s fault.

        LOL

    3. Local says:

      They were picking up their checks. They are being PAID by the city! The city has a program of paying the gangsters to hopefully make it safer. As ridiculous as that sounds on top of this the manager of the safety office was instructing his employees to tell the officers NOTHING!

      Whats upsetting is this article hides those HUGE facts

      1. Reality Check says:

        Every one of these “civil servants” who told the police, “I ain’t seen nothin’,” should be fired and prosecuted for obstructing an officer!!!!!

  3. Kevin Wallis says:

    “staff plan to meet with all seven of the men involved in an effort to mediate the conflict” hummm if it were any one of us, the cops knowing who we were, would arrest us. i guess as long as your supposedly being treated is another excuse to get a free pass .

  4. Harry Martin says:

    The use of mental health treatment should not prelude holding these people responsible for violent, unacceptable behavior. Failure to teach and allow real life consequences does not foster recovery. Assault, battery, violence are criminal acts and should be dealt with as a part of any treatment. Failure to do so is simply enabling in the most negative sense of the word, for the individuals and the community.

    The so called “Progress” is the search they all had to go through to get into the city offices. If it weren’t for that there would have been a gun fight for sure. This is progress?????. I sometimes think the USA should buy Eastern Island and create a penal colony for these fools & idiots.

    Typical response from those that get SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. I remember going to a “deli” and getting some sliced meat for my son’s lunch the next day at school (EXCUSE ME for not “qualifying” for FREE FOOD). I saw a 300 pound woman buy SEVEN sub sandwiches, chips, candy and soda in front of me and PAY for it with a GOVERNMENT credit card. While I was digging in my purse for CHANGE to pay for 1/4 pound of ham, and SHE was checking out, I said to her: “YOUR WELCOME”. She grabbed her out-of-control toddler and looked at me like a deer in the headlights. GUBMENT TIT-SUCKERS at work. She had NO CLUE, NO work ethic, NO responsibility.

    1. privatourig says:

      Absolutely correct. Tired of waiting behind fat people with children running around like drunk lizards while they check out 600 dollars of stuff that I cannot afford because the Government says I am in an “upper income” category. 00% my left norstril…..99% is the new gimme-gimme…what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable. 666 people on the rampage.

      I would watch the line at Walmartin Chicago (Waukegan) the day after “payday” from the welfare office. FILLED with “patrons” returning merchandise for cash. You known- the items you can legally buy with welfare checks (sorry – debit cards). Then the NEW lines would form at the cash registers – formed from the aforementioned lines. Cigarettes, beer, etc. And the added bonus of “Baby Daddy” to help shop this time ’round.

  20. privatouring` says:

    The main reason that we do not hunt them down is because they are doing an excellent job of killing one another on their own. We, the ones who pay our own way, without AFDC, food stamps, section 8. reverse-transfendered single mother high school preggy counselling services….we do no murder. We defend only the property we rightfully own. We are not KKK, raqcists, murderers, thieves, liars, and slackers. We also do not vote National Socialist or pro-Communist….If I had a hammer, I would not make a sickle.

    NO MORE BABY MOTHERS….NO MORE NANCY PELOSI FACE-LIFTS!.

    1. weew says:

      Correction: we don’t hunt them down because we know the liberal court system would prosecute us for doing the job they are supposed to do.

      Face it, the law protects the criminals more than it protects the law-abiding.

        When the starting point is 47 murders in 2009 a non lethal altercation with a more of a hiccup than a reason to dismantle an effective program that has had some promising results.

    I love how these wanna-be-thugs demand respect but then go around acting the way they do. DO they really think that the people of this country will finally realize how strong they are and give them respect? No. The citizens will eventually just get tired of being the victums of these “gansters” and will begin to solve the problem using good ol fashioned punishment, like a shotgun.

      Close the useless office & STOP wasting taxpayers money! Fire that office leader too! CROOKS

  34. Kip Noxzema says:

    Gee, I wonder if the reason they didn’t “pick up a gun” was because they’re at CITY HALL, WHERE YOU CAN’T BRING GUNS IN!

    Violent fight with blood everywhere, and that’s called a sign of progress ? Is this part of their “mental health treatment”? In that case, why not have them in an announced boxing ring fight? All the gangs can attend and do their crack cocaine.

    They “have a history of gang violence”, and are not in prison, thanks to crooked judges. Next time I get called to jury duty for a gang member, I’m going to make certain I get on the jury and I will find the coward GUILTY, no matter what. Dead gangsters are good gangsters.

  41. jimonthebeach says:

    This was not a fight between psychopathic, gang-banging thugs. This was just a disagreement between poor, misunderstood, and unemployed youth who are struggling to find their voice. They just need counseling and improved anger management skills. Surely, we all understand that an “exchange of looks and heated words” can lead to lethal violence. We should be grateful that this exchange of ideas took place in California, where gang warfare has been banned for many years.

    An you expected WHAT???? These people were raised by so-called “Parents” that allowed their kids to run the streets all hours of the night. They are from Broken Homes, Alcoholic homes, abusive homes and homes where “The Man” is king and everyone else,,,especially Women,,are jus there for him to use. I know, I saw this for many years as a Police Officer and that is why I quit. It was too much of a culture shock for me because I was raised on a farm and was tought manners, respect and responibility.

  45. DutchUncle says:

    I am full blooded German and Christian,,,and I don’t even make an idiotic statement like this,,,Jews?If the Jews are exploiting us,,,then it’s OUR fault,,,and if they are running all the businesses then THEY are better business people because we don’t stand together. All we do is whine while Jewish people support their own. You can’t get two White, European Christians to say the same thing let along stand up for one another and support their neighbors kids getting into business. The kids have to go to the corrupt banks and Borrow the money. It’s not that way in the Jewish community,,the people there put up the money for them. We are to self centered then we Blame others…Do your researhc clown before you make a bigger moron of yourself then you already have…And this is coming from someone that USED to think the same way until I opened my eyes and pulled my head out of my AZZ.

    Sounds like money well spent!

  57. MIRTED says:

    Is it possible the only reason they didn’t have guns is metal detectors at the front door, or perhaps it would void them getting a check of some sort?

    I am a Mid-westerner. I shutter in awe when a bloody gang-bang fight is seen as progress toward peace and civility. Possibly I am missing something or S.F. values are in place. The violence problem maybe someday will be solved after they kill each other off. However, the stupidity of Devone Boggan can never be remedied. Mr. Boggan needs to take his considerable skills to the Gaza Strip and bring his unique traits on peacemaking to bear.

  65. NYC Common sense says:

    Why do they not have guns?? Its better for everyone if they shoot each other and quickly. They need to shoot each other faster.

  67. moreco2 says:

    “The ONS director said he sees the unarmed brawl as a sign of progress, since the young men involved all have a history of gun violence.”

    Doofus, I don’t think they could get guns past the metal detector. Besides, they have strict gun control in Richmond.

  68. Harpotoo says:

    Police have so far been unable to locate any of the men involved, and have few details about what happened, Lt. Bisa French said Tuesday.

  72. Ben Dover says:

    Yes, that is progress. And ONS needs more federal grant money to continue the progress.

    My bet is the only reason the fist fight did not turn into a gun fight is that they probably had to walk through metal detectors at the entrance to city hall. There ain’t no metal detectors on the street.

    1. Sir Realist says:

      exactly what i was thinking

  73. Local says:

    What this article doesn’t mention is these Gangsters are all getting PAID by the CITY!!!!

    Its a plan by the city to pay the gangsters to keep the streets safer. What the article also doesn’t mention is the city employee in charge of the office where this fight happened instructed his employees to not tell the police anything.

    But, despite the trail of blood leading to the elevator, the ONS workers refused to say who the attackers were or where the victims went, according to police reports. They would not even say who was present.

  76. George Johnson says:

    These government people have deluded themselves into thinking programs like this actually help. These guys only showed up for this program to get a lighter sentence. Not because they want peace.
    And the ONLY reason there wasn’t a gun fight is the security of the COURTHOUSE! They know they can’t bring a gun with them!
    So the libs get a “feel good” moment, and can go out there and delude the rest of us into thinking what ever they’re doing works.
    Sad, sad, sad…..

  77. George Johnson says:

    “rival gang members showed up at City Hall to collect pay checks for their participation in a city-administered life skills training program.”

    So the taxpayers are PAYING these thugs to “learn” what they should have learned from the parents and from going to school.

    And these people refuse to help the police?? Isn’t that obstruction of of an investigation??

    You people are getting soaked!! What a liberal rip off.

    We have GOT to STAMP OUT LIBERALISM! It’s destroying America!

  79. MaD dOG says:

    The fight stemmed from an “exchange of looks”…

    Happens in the back seat a lot when I’m driving… have to tell the kids to “Knock it Off!” One invariably says the other “started it by looking at her.”

    So these hard core gang bangers are really acting like 5 and 6 year old girls.

  84. WilliamPenn says:

    Frisco has a police department? I thought the kook-a-boo lefties would have disbanded it by now. Are they allowed to carry guns, or defend themselves?

  85. Giuseppe in Stati Uniti says:

    “(Boggan) said he does not believe Friday’s altercation will lead to more serious violence.”

    Did they kiss and make up while you were watching? Did you make sure they didn’t have their fingers crossed behind their backs?

  86. Constance says:

    Well then… right back to jail, along with the rest of the group. Let’s give it another six months behind bars and see if we can behave the next time. We can play this game all day, every day. Get these animals off my streets, and keep them off my streets.

  87. MacCane says:

    “They decided to pick their fists up instead of a gun,” Boggan said. “Everyone got up and walked away—not one mother has to bury their child this week.”

    They brought no guns onto government property which likely checks for that, so let’s not be hasty in the progress report, low as it is. Give it to about Friday or Saturday night.

  88. David Baker says:

    San Francisco is a snake-pit. Don’t ever go there.

  89. sailordude says:

    Whats up with that sculpture at the city hall?

    Is it titled pipe cleaners? looks pretty dreadful.

  90. SnotPuppy says:

    A fist fight at city hall … in the offices that are suppose to ‘bring everyone together”? This is a joke right? Or is San FRan a joke?

  91. MissyOgyny says:

    “…exchange of looks…” a.k.a. “mean muggin'”. LOL! This is just another example of blind political correctness pretending that feral animals can be reasonable; and in the process, imperiling the public.

  92. Terry says:

    In the good old days, wild dogs were shot. End of problem.

  93. Skep41 says:

    So, how many cops have gotten laid off in that town because of budget cuts so they could spend millions on this hogwash? That’s the bureaucratic code- lay off a cop and then hire a psychologist to talk criminals out of murdering each other. And that great progress! Because they have to pass through a metal detector these geniuses left their guns and knives with their old ladies in the parking lot so they could go in and suck up to The Man. And what, pray tell, motivated this paragons of good behavior to enroll in this Progressive program? Money perhaps? So lay off a cop, pay a criminal not to be a criminal. Great. Next time your taxes go up think about this story.

  94. MissyOgyny says:

    And just what kind of “gubmint” salary and bennies is DaVonne Boggan pulling down at the ONS? Is it a matter of public record?

  95. John Standos says:

    I heard a rumor that they were Amish. Enough is enough, somebody needs to stand up to these violent Amish gangs!

  96. SirGareth says:

    What can one say but “gorillas in the mist”

    No no don’t tell is what race the chimps are……keep us guessing….might be some angry Danes.

  97. mameshki says:

    Two problems: 1. Liberals solutions to all ills is money and 2. without seeing the tape, I’ll bet all comers that the protagonists are all black. How did I know that, go to item 1 above.

  98. Terk says:

    You can’t fight here!!! This is a war room!!!!!

  99. Veronica says:

    In their ‘Mother land’ of Afreaka, they use machetes to cut up their neighbors and eat them.

  100. Getaclue says:

    “Police have so far been unable to locate any of the men involved, and have few details about what happened, Lt. Bisa French said Tuesday.”

    “ONS staff plan to meet with all seven of the men involved in an effort to mediate the conflict.”

    Hmm, police have no clues and ONS is planning a meeting… the citizens of SF deserves this kind of public service.

  101. jbass says:

    i think that gets the positive spin award for this week

  102. Frank Riz says:

    Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here, this is the war room.

  103. Mike says:

    Someone should have explained to the gangsters of the significant meaning of the name of the programs that they were in. I’ll bet they were all for it because they thought “peacekeeper” meant shotguns!

  104. Kip Noxzema says:

    Let me get this straight. We have a lot of people fighting at City Hall, with their security cameras and guards posted, 911 calls are coming in left and right, and Boggan knows the men are “enrolled”. Yet the cops can’t locate any of the punks involved? Really? What kind of police do they have there?

  105. Robert says:

    A bunch of shaved apes doing what comes naturally.

  106. Irwin Bedell says:

    Whose bright idea was it to go to get African slaves for the cotton plantations?

  107. Zanesville says:

    I think the rest of the Zanesville animals where found on the 3rd floor of the building ….I believe they said monkeys where still missing ?

  108. roy says:

    I am a white man who grew up in black neighborhoods my whole life.I got news for people like Patty.Black people have been more willing to help me and my family than any of the white people that I have ever known.Black people tend to have close knit family bonds and will go to jail to protect someone they love.Most of the black men in prison are there for drug charges.A drug sale is a victim less crime. Most of the white guys in prison are there for rape and child molestation. So get the fantasy that because you are white that you are better than a black person out of your ignorant,self righteous,racist,white trash heads.

  109. Brick Thompson says:

    LOUD NOISES!

  110. Reality Check says:

    It’s only because they didn’t want to be carrying guns in City Hall, not some sign of a sudden policy shift. Get real, fool!

  111. shootingblanks00 says:

    Pay them off.

    Yep, if you’re a gang member and you agree not to shoot anyone, you can sashay your ass down to City Hall and pick up an “atta boy!” check.

    Let that settle into your brain: If you’re a criminal, we’ll pay you not to commit a crime.

    Someone want to tell me how you audit/verify that? If they’re still writing checks, that must mean that all gang crime is gone, right? My BP shot up 40 point just thinking about that…

    Anyways, it seems that the scheduling secretary messed up, and two rival gangs showed up for the payoffs at the same time. Oops. These criminals all got into a fist fight(I wonder if they still got their checks?)
