The San Francisco Police Officers Association thug-in-chief Martin Halloran has stepped down as president of the union.
This is good news for every resident of San Francisco. Halloran made a career out of protecting brutal crooked cops.
Former SFPOA Vice President Tony Montoya has replaced Halloran as president of the union.
According to the San Francisco Examiner, the SFPOA has been accused of stalling police reform since the U.S. Department of Justice released 272 recommendations for reform in 2016 in the wake of numerous brutal killings by police officers.
Montoya was among the subjects of an excessive force lawsuit that San Francisco settled in October 2016 for $40,000. Montoya also reportedly admitted to a neglect of duty charge in 2000 and was suspended for 30 days.
Don’t expect much to change at the San Francisco Police Department. Brutality against the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color will continue.
