Feds Fault San Francisco Police

Though the city prides itself on its progressive values, San Franciscos Police Department has found itself engulfed in the same outrage over brutality and racial bias that has swept other cities from Baltimore to El Cajon.

.

A six-month study by the U.S. Justice Department released Wednesday found that the department disproportionately used force on people of color, and stopped and searched them more often than it did white people.

.

Federal officials reviewed 548 use-of-force cases between May 2013 and May 2016, finding  37% of the people whom city police used force against were African American, a larger percentage than for any other ethnic group. Nine of the 11 people who were killed during use-of-force incidents in that time frame were people of color.

.

Mayor Ed Lee requested the report after Mario Woods, a black man suspected of assault, was shot at least 21 times by police in 2015 while holding a knife.

.

Federal officials made 272 separate recommendations for reform in the report, including better training with batons to non-fatally subdue suspects with knives.

.

The study found that the department did not properly investigate officer use-of-force incidents, does not keep complete and consistent officer-involved shooting files, and generally had outdated information technology systems and tools to identify patterns of misconduct. Instead of submitting information to a searchable digital database, San Francisco police officers write their use-of-force reports in paper logs.

.

Federal investigators also discovered that while black and Latino drivers were more likely to be pulled over than white drivers, they were less likely to be found with contraband.

.

Other key findings: The department was not transparent about officer discipline, completing only one investigation into the deadly use of force during the three-year period  and an analysis of 500 use-of-force incidents showed city police officers properly categorized the type of force used on only five occasions.

.

Lee praised the report during a Wednesday morning news conference, calling it the first step toward an improved and more inclusive department.

.

Im proud to report that the San Francisco Police Department will accept and implement every single recommendation, he said. We must restore trust, and these measures are important steps forward.

.

John Burris, the attorney representing Woods relatives, said the report could mark a turning point for a law enforcement agency that has been resistant to reform.

.

Despite this notion of San Francisco being a modern place, this department is anything but modern, Burris said.

.

The report, he said, sort of opened the department, opened its guts up if you will, and much of what they opened up was not a pretty sight to see.
