Officer violence nothing new

“Murky past for officers in Woods killing,” The City, Dec. 15
Officer violence nothing new

We don’t pay our police to be Einsatzgruppen. This is not the first time such a thing has happened, and it should mean prison for the Suhr-Lee Gang. Their murder operation must be demoralizing to loyal officers who know there are many other ways of subduing a weakened person with a knife. From the looks of it, I could have taken down Mario Woods with a handshake. We really should not tolerate such hubris like other cities that can’t or won’t handle rebellious factions within law enforcement. There is no place for firing squads on the street.

Lee quiet in Woods killing

It seems almost universal that the killing of Mario Woods was an execution. Ed Lee should be more on top of this. Someone must be accountable for this travesty. Why does the police department have so much control over city government? I hope something happens to the officer who provoked the barrage of bullets on this man.
