Police misconduct allegations from Bayview activist’s children

Fresh off complaints last week that a beat officer was pulled out of Bernal Dwellings in the Mission district, allegations of police misconduct at the housing complex have surfaced involving the children of a longtime city activist and supervisor candidate.

The daughter, granddaughter and two great-grandchildren of 77-year-old Espinola Jackson were pulled from their home in Bernal Dwellings on Sunday at about 9 p.m., Jackson and her family said Wednesday at the Police Commission.

Police had been searching for a robbery suspect, and the victim apparently told police the suspect went into the home of Espinola Washington, Juanita Jackson and Washington’s two children.

The officers pulled all four from the home in their bedclothes while they looked for the suspect, Washington said. They waited outside without their shoes and were searched by a male officer despite a female officer being on the scene, she added.

Espinola Jackson, not surprisingly, had a few choice words for the Police Commission and police Chief George Gascón.

“I think that some of your officers need some training on how to deal with women,” she said.
