california prosecutors alliance. she said. the unresolved pain can also perpetuate the problem. sometimes it comes when people try to take justice into their own hands. things don't get settled. things don't get resolved. we don't get answers. people continue to be unsafe, and so it just builds on itself. and we see this cycle continue for people like robertson and her daughter. the pain isn't going away anytime soon. we never get a chance to heal. we never get a chance to just breathe just to live. but while this mom knows there are challenges ahead, she's determined to give her daughter the best life she can. and hoping the worst is behind them. can you want king e t t? that's one thing i try to live by his being resilient. um i refused to give up and i have to set an example for her. she sees everything in oakland. evan sernoffsky ktvu, fox two news. well. homicide investigation is underway in walnut creek. police say it
