  • I have known Kira for about 10 years even though I have not seen her in close to 5 years. She was a pathological liar, thief, and, violent at times but she could surprise you. She put her life on the line to help someone else. A man she knew casually was being attacked beaten and stabbed by a group; Kira lay down on top of him, with the hope that attackers would not stab her. She was right and he lived; otherwise, he would have bled out. I am sure this was a incident fueled by drugs and alcohol. She probably hit him on pupose but did not mean to kill, even though I do not believe this lowers her culpabilty.

  • I’ve known Cameron and Kira personally re for two or three years, they were a fixture on the streets in the Tenderloin. This event is really tragic. What really makes the murder hit home is my memory of Scott (Scotty) Keoug, who was beat severely and robbed of his Social Security money and his medication all while in a wheel chair, he was too weak to move or get shelter and passed away the next day from his injuries and exposure. Scotty was like a long lost uncle to me, although I don’t drink for personal reasons, I can’t help but think about what a terrible affliction alcoholism can be. All of the people I have mentioned in this post were very alcoholic. I can easily envision Kira and Cameron in a physical struggle, perhaps even in a ‘blackout’ state of consciousness, having a moment of rage which turned deadly. My heart is heavy with the sad memories associated with these poor lost souls yet I can’t help but appreciate the “Harm Reduction” policies that San Franciscans have adopted. If only the stigma of illegal drugs was more associated with alcohol….what a mess this is, how long will society turn it’s head away from what the A.M.A. declared in 1953, that addiction is a disease, no matter what the flavor, from sugar to crack. I cant help but think about the idea that it is a sign of ill health to be well adjusted in a sick society.
