We Are Not Tolerant of EVERYTHING
"This is a dark day, an extremely dark day, in the history of the San Francisco Police Department," said Fong, who called the acts "egregious, shameful and despicable."Sorry, but as soon as I read those words, I wanted a copy of the video!
"It is shameful, it is offensive, it is sexist, it is homophobic and it is racist," Newsom said. "We're going to make sure that it ends, it ends immediately."In other words, 'you should have been disrepectful to hetrosexual white males, then it would have been funny, but since you've hit the major constituents of the entire Board of Supervisors, we are offended.'
So, what was in the videos? The one that I would call tasteless was cop running over a homeless black women. That's the one that got the Mayor so riled up. Like I said, he'd have sung a different tune if the homeless person was wearing a Karl Rove mask.
It also showed two officers ignoring calls and reading the paper, then when a call for a shooting came in taking off with the lights and sirens on, but to go to a massage parlor they saw in the paper. I'm sure had they stopped at a gay bath house everything would have been fine with that segment, too.
And the topper of all of it, three straight women imitating Charlies Angels, and their captain licking his lips. Then him receiving the same treatment from some cross dressing males. The women should have been three gay men, then it would have been okay.
Update: http://insidethesfpd.com/ has a thank you note for all the support Officer Cohen has received from people since this incident. He promises the site will be back up. I hope he posts the video again.
