SF PD Racist Homophobic Emails Draw Jeff Adachi Anger In the wake of findings of racist and homophobic emails by some San Francisco Police Department Officials, SF Public Defender Jeff Adachi has called for a review of thousands of past cases. An estimated 1,000 criminal cases will be reviewed following revelations that San Francisco police officers regularly shared racist and homophobic views in text messages, San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi announced today. The Public Defender today also released a 10-point plan to increase police transparency and safeguard citizens against racial bias. Adachi said he will work with San Francisco District Attorney George Gasc√≥n to review criminal cases over the past 10 years that may have been tainted by former sergeant Ian Furminger and four current officers, identified in the press as Michael Robison, Noel Schwab, Rain Dougherty and Michael Celis. The officers sent epithet-laden text messages denigrating blacks, gays, Filipinos and Mexicans. The texts revealed in a court filing by prosecutors in Furminger’s federal corruption case. Furminger was convicted in December of robbing drug suspects. “The messages make clear the utter contempt these officers had for the people they were sworn to protect. You can’t simply set aside this kind of extreme bias when you go to work. It affected who they chose to detain, search and arrest. It affected which witnesses or crime victims they chose to believe,” Adachi said.
