Eliana Lopez Responds to Release of Emotional Video Showing Her Bruise

Categories: Crime, Politics
(Update 12:50 p.m.): Eliana Lopez responds to the video release. Read after the jump:

The Chronicle has obtained the incriminating video that everyone has been waiting for -- the one Eliana Lopez made the day after her husband, Sheriff-in-limbo Ross Mirkarimi, bruised her arm in a domestic dispute.

The 45-second video, taken by Lopez's neighbor Ivory Madison, shows Lopez crying and explaining how she got the bruise on her arm and how "this is the second time this is happening."

The video was obtained by police with a search warrant, and has become the key evidence in the case against Mirkarimi, who pled guilty to misdemeanor charges of false imprisonment in connection to the Dec. 31 domestic dispute. The video has been hidden from the public until now.

Mayor Ed Lee has made it clear he wants Mirkarimi out of his position as sheriff, and has pointed to this video as evidence of officials misconduct.

Lopez's attorney has been fighting to keep this very video out of the public domain, claiming it serves no purpose other than to humiliate Lopez and cause her and her 3-year-old son Theo grief.

After the video went public, Lopez, who is still in Venezuela with her son, released the following statement to the press:

"I am sad and hurt by the elected officials of the city of San Francisco: Mayor Lee, City Attorney Herrera, District Attorney George Gascón, and Judge Wong. They each have contributed to the release of the video against my wishes and allowed it to go viral. Because of their actions the images on that video will exist forever for anyone to see -- including my son, Theo, now and forever. My grandchildren will see the video, as well as my great grandchildren. I believe what Judge Wong, the District Attorney, the City Attorney, and Mayor Lee have done to me is far worse than anything they accuse Ross of doing. I hope they realize after reflection that what they have done is irreparable and perpetually damaging to me and my family."

ELIANA LOPEZ WAS BATTERED TODAY. Not by her husband (he never did) but by this city, who, by releasing that video, has taken away some of her dignity. Shameful, inexcusable, and irreparable damages has been done. 

Erin Sherbert you say stuff like: "videothat everyone has been waiting for" "The video has been hidden from the public until now." 

Really.  What kind of person are you?  Thanks.

Notice the dry fake tear drop that she wipes away with her left hand. chicks do this all the time on tv shows like dr phil etc to show fake drama and fake sadness. the only problem is you never actually see liquid coming from the sad eye in most cases. its all fake drama made for tv and you tube. this younger generation is really into the whole drama thing now days. they are a fake plastic generation of soft fat out of shape wimps who snivel about everything under the sun.

If you don't want a video to be shown, DON'T MAKE ONE.

It is city hall, the so called ethics commission, and the courts that have allowed the release of that video. 

Good for you Jennifer to be a supporter of battering Eliana Lopez in a public square.

Can't wait for all those rabid murky-rim-me supporters to defend this video which would do nothing to change their mind about this wife abuser since they think he's the 2nd coming of jesus.
