San Francisco Names Highest Ranking Black LAPD Officer As Police Chief

San Francisco’s police department has been going through what could be generously referred to as a rough patch.

It fell under harsh criticism in 2015 after Mario Woods was shot 2o times while holding a knife and continued into 2016 as it went through multiple police chiefs following the exposure of multiple scandals – one of which involved racist text messages sent by officers.
