Federal grand jury indictments stem from series of 2011 incidents disclosed by city’s public defender.
Pension hawk Jeff Adachi yesterday held a press conference on the steps of City Hall to compare — unfavorably, natch — Mayor Ed Lee’s reform plan, which has the buy-in of most city unions, to his own, which doesn’t. In fact, city workers probably enjoy hearing about Adachi’s quest to make them contribute more to […]
Update May 28: Reports on this story from The Informant and the Chronicle, filling in some of the details. Update 3 p.m., May 27 The new Adachi video is now up on the Public Defender’s YouTube site. Here’s the description of it from the PD’s office: San Francisco Police report says “Inastrilla raised his right […]
From Bay City News: San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and several city officials gathered at City Hall today to announce a measure for the November ballot that proposes widespread reform to city workers’ pensions and health benefits. The proposed charter amendment–the result of months of negotiations between city officials and labor and business leaders–would cap […]
The SFPD video scandal continues. Yesterday, San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi released another hotel security video that he says is evidence of police misconduct.

KQED’s Peter Jon Shuler is at the Criminal Justice Forum at USF, where San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon are speaking and answering questions. I’d imagine the ongoing to-do over the SFPD video scandal will come up at some point. Last week, interim police chief Jeff Godown was […]
