On Monday the U.S. Department of Justice said it would launch a review of the San Francisco Police Department, two months after the controversial police killing of 26-year-old Mario Woods. The DOJ's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services will conduct the review, at the request of Mayor Ed Lee. But the DOJ did not launch a civil rights investigation of the department, which some city officials and protesters had called for. We talk with Chief Greg Suhr and others about the review and the Board of Supervisors' unanimous approval of a "Mario Woods Remembrance Day."
