Judges to review arrests by California officers in racist texts scandal

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 07:49
San Francisco's district attorney has appointed three retired judges to review the integrity of 3,000 arrests involving more than a dozen police officers who engaged in racist and homophobic text messages, his office said on Thursday. District Attorney George Gascón said the officers' actions compromised public trust in law enforcement. The move to appoint the three jurists, who include former California Supreme Court Associate Justice Cruz Reynoso, is aimed at helping restore public faith in police, Gascón said in a statement. The controversy over the text messages among San Francisco police officers comes amid a series of fatal police confrontations across the country that have put law enforcement agencies under scrutiny over the use of lethal force, especially against minorities, the poor and the mentally ill.
