Calls within City Hall for San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to resign are mounting, following
a blue-ribbon panel’s finding this week that the department lacks transparency, engages in racial
profiling and exhibits bias in hiring. The report comes as the SFPD remains under fierce scrutiny
for multiple officer-involved shootings and racist and homophobic text exchanges between
officers. Suhr’s supporters, including Mayor Ed Lee, say that critics are putting politics ahead of
police reform. We discuss what’s next for the SFPD.
