Your Call: Reforming the San Francisco Police Department
On the May 26th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about what it will take to reform San Francisco’s police department.
Last Thursday, a San Francisco police sergeant shot and killed Jessica Williams, an unarmed 29 year-old black woman. It was the SFPD's third fatal shooting in six months. Hours later, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr resigned at the request of Mayor Ed Lee.
What happens now? What concrete reforms would you like to see? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
