Parents file claims

Files Suit

Steinle’s parents, Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan, file three claims seeking unspecified damages against San Francisco’s Sheriff Mirkarimi, the Bureau of Land Management and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to hold them accountable for her death. If the claims are denied, the family could file wrongful death suits. Lawyer:

Both statistics and this gentleman’s history would tell you that what happened out on Pier 14 was not only forseeable, it was predictable.

The Steinle family say they were prompted to act after witnessing weeks of finger-pointing over the killing and no change in the sanctuary city policies. Brother:

We’re here to make sure that a change is made so no one has to endure the pain my mom and dad and I go through on a daily basis. Because the system failed our sister. And at this point, no one has taken responsibility, accountability, and nothing has changed.

Americans want wild horses on our public lands. You cattlemen and wildlife people are special interest groups. … You need to stop attacking the wild horses, attempting to diminish their numbers, and make resources available to them.

Wildlife Society biologist Debra Hawk criticizes the BLM for not holding more wild-horse roundups, saying that the expanding number of wild horses harms other species that rely on the land.

Not conducting roundups will result in further degradation of native ranges, harming native wildlife and plants …
