Union stooge Joe Marshall rejected by Police Commission

Screenshot 2018-07-11 at 06.54.21.pngSupervisor Sandra Fewer made the motion to reject Marshall’s reappointment Tuesday, saying “After watching the Rules Committee meeting yesterday I am compelled to make a motion to reject the mayor’s nomination for the reappointment.”

During that hearing, Board President Malia Cohen had a series of tense exchanges with Marshall where she called into question his willingness to stand up to the San Francisco Police Officers Association and his commitment to implementing police reform.

She also noted that Marshall sided with the union in his support for the controversial neck hold called the carotid restraint. The commission banned officers from using this hold in December 2016.

Police reform supporters had also criticized Marshall and called on the board to reject his reappointment.

They are of course correct. Marshall is a tool of the San Francisco Police Officers Association. His “leadership” is of no value to the community.  Good riddance.
