SF Police Chief Asks for Firing of 7 Officers in Texting Scandal

April 06, 2015  | 

VIDEO: San Francisco Officers to be Fired Amid Texting Scandal

As expected, San Francisco PD's Chief Suhr announced he will ask the San Francisco police commission to terminate seven officers for sending, or responding to homophobic text messages. He will ask them to look at the actions of six others, as well. One police officer has already resigned and the chief expected a second resignation, reports KGO.

The text messages came to light only after federal prosecutors released them last month, as part of a bail hearing for former officer Ian Furminger, who was convicted in a federal corruption trial last December.

The scandal could jeopardize court cases that relied on testimony from officers linked to the ugly texts. A review is underway.

Oh Boy! The domino effect on these kind of things seems to be never ending.

So if these officers are being "homoPHOBIC" then this policing / government organinzation is persecuting / penablizing people with a mental disorder (i.e. people with an irrational fear = "phobia").

Sounds like the basis for a nasty LEGAL ACTION against the city of San Fransisco and the individuals invovled personally in various CIVIL ACTIONS.

Funny how they claim themselves to be "tolerant" but are in fact very "intolerate" towards anyone that does not think as they do.
