    (snipped from article OP) San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon has yet to decide whether he will criminally charge any deputies in the incident.

    What the heck???

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    I read something here about how (forgive me if I'm a bit off with the details) with the Chicago police department, 80% of the dashcams were non-functional, in most cases because of deliberate tampering. So, the fear of cameras does change something -- it makes bad police branch out from violence and theft to damaging government property.

    I should have posted independent business, residential and street cameras.

    80% of dash cams not working! That vendor/supplierand/or police employee should have those fixed and there should be some indicator/sensor to let LE station know that a camera is down, instantaneously. LEO supervisor should be dispatched to that cruiser with dashcam that is down. jmo

    Parts of the report on a controversial and severe beating of a suspect by Alameda County Sheriffs' deputies in San Francisco were mistakenly released as part of a records request according to the Alameda County Sheriffs Department.

    Interesting reading from the incident reports.

    I guess that's important to know -- that they were mistakenly released.

    Myself, I think that it's much more important to know if the parts of the report were true or false.

    Given that LE often leaks things to taint jury pools or bias public opinion, I do find it a bit shameful that this is a crying point for LE.

    Something that really saddens me in all of these stories about the abuse of power by LEOs is that those defending them usually do want the world to be a better place, and they think that LEOs are part of the solution. I get that, and I do believe that many LEOs are good folks. But I think that the mythology/hagiography around LEOs in general can be distracting people from just how bad individual incidents like this are for society in general. This isn't just a story about one bad private citizen who did something wrong. It's a story about *MANY* public servants who (ab)used their power to beat the crap out of someone, and then take trophy pictures of their carnage, and then, as has been alleged, take his personal effects to bribe witnesses.

    Again, we're not just talking about 1 or 2 bad apples here, but a bucket-full.

    It baffles me how these Alameda County Sheriff yahoos were able to make it so far into San Francisco without any appearance by either The California State Highway Patrol or the San Francisco Police.

    The chase itself sounds very very dangerous and yet it went on at very high speeds for quite a length of time. The report goes on and on about the Highway Patrol helicopter not being available but last I knew they still have patrol cars. Where were all the cars to follow them across the 4.5 mile bridge into downtown San Francisco? Where were the SF Police? Was the chase being broadcast on Police scanners?

    I am unaware of any time in the past where Alameda County Sheriffs have followed (much less chased) someone into San Francisco County and arrested them. Its not like they veered over into another county, they crossed a bridge which at about the halfway point becomes San Francisco County.

    Note that San Francisco is both a City and a County. There are no other cities in the County. San Francisco has a Sheriff who runs the County Jail, patrols the County Hospital and doesn't usually patrol the streets of San Francisco.

    I think every last one of the Officers involved in this unseemly episode should be prosecuted and fired!

    And, I think there are more parts to this story that are missing.

    It seems to be happening more than we know, or more than I was aware.

    Today, the Jamal Clark case and the 40 yo man from Fresno video was released.
