"I demand and expect a full investigation, and further expect that racist, anti-Muslim or menacing comments expressed by any current SJPD Officer will be met with termination, as they were in 2016.  As I articulated in my police reform proposal this week, I will also continue to push for changes to the disciplinary process that currently allows unaccountable arbitrators to reverse termination decisions of the Chief (as happened in 2016) without court review, and I will push for independent investigation of all racially discriminatory conduct.  This is precisely why these reforms are so important."

Mayor Liccardo's full proposal can be viewed here.
