The city of San Francisco was enthralled last week when Batkid came to town. The Make-A-Wish Foundation made young Miles Scott’s dream of becoming a superhero come true and more than 13,000 people turned out to cheer him on. But one of those people didn’t make it home.
D’Paris “DJ” Williams, 20, had just left the Batkid festivities and was returning to his home in the city’s Valencia Gardens apartment in San Francisco’s Mission District. Williams had just ridden his bike up to his front door when he got into an altercation with a group of plainclothes police officers who were reportedly talking to him for riding his bike on the sidewalk. Photographer Travis Jensen, who witnessed the incident, told Uptown Almanac that as Williams tried to enter his home with his sister standing in the doorway with a newborn baby, officers grabbed him from behind. After searching him, officers uncovered a cupcake and juice that Williams had just purchased from a corner store and began to beat him.
Williams was then taken to a local jail. In the above video, he is seen bloody and screaming as he’s led away to a police cruiser. Meanwhile, angry neighbors who witnessed the incident were then targeted by police officers. In total four people were arrested, including, according to Uptown Almanac, an elderly HIV-positive man whose medical complications require him to use a cane that police determined was a “deadly weapon.”
Here’s another video from a different witness that shows bystanders being arrested by police:
KTVU is reporting that the District Attorney has dropped charges against Williams and another man who was arrested at the scene. A protest later followed on Tuesday at 5pm PST outside of the Mission District police station.
The SFPD later released the following statement, telling their side of the story:
At approximately 3:41 PM Friday, officers from the Violence Reduction Team, working a plainclothes assignment, attempted to stop a bicyclist in the area of Maxwell and Rosa Parks for a California vehicle code infraction. The suspect fled from the officers after they identified themselves as police. The suspect attempted to flee into a residence. The officers confronted the suspect near the doorway and requested additional units for assistance. The suspect failed to comply with lawful orders from the officers and continued to resist the officers. Reasonable force was used by the officers to effect the arrest. During this incident, multiple subjects came from the rear of the residence and formed a hostile crowd around the officers. One subject attempted to strike an officer with a cane while another suspect bit an officer. Two officers suffered non-life threatening injuries. In total, 4 suspects were arrested. 2 felony and 1 misdemeanor arrests resulted in bookings. One misdemeanor arrest resulted in a cite.

Every year thousands of men and women risk their lives trying to illegally enter “Fortress Europe”, where increasingly strict border policies keep pace with increasingly anti-immigration minded constituencies. Since 1993, over 16,000 people have died trying to emigrate. They come from Sudan, Tunisia, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Afghanistan, Eritrea, and Somalia, to name a few.
Some are refugees from war torn countries while others seek political asylum. Many have given up on economic wastelands in search of honest labor in foreign lands, and while on their uncertain journeys will find themselves stuck in rundown parts of Istanbul or Tel Aviv, scraping by on expired visas, waiting to catch a break or sock away enough currency to pay traffickers to sneak them into Europe.
In the ramshackle neighborhood of Kumkapi in Istanbul, refugees pay up to $2000 to be stuffed into the back of a van and driven to Edirne before hiking in the dark for three hours to the river Evros where inflatable rafts then ferry them across to Greece. Many drown attempting the crossing or suffer other unfortunate fates. Others choose to stick it out in Kumkapi and end up living years or decades in Istanbul illegally, with few options for re-settlement or legal labor.
In Tel Aviv, most refugees and ‘economic migrants’ end up in Shapira, where the neighborhood park is filled nightly with homeless Sudanese and Eritrean men. Right wing sentiment in Israel has recently turned more aggressive, with a molotov cocktail attack and stabbing in broad daylight terrorizing the African communities in Shapira, and public opinion has edged towards mass deportations.
