San Francisco Police Officer Fired for Private ‘Anti-Islam’ Texts

(Before It's News)

A police officer in San Francisco was sent packing — fired — after making what employers determined were inappropriate messages against Muslims.

A San Francisco police officer was fired for criticizing Islam, privatelu, to coworkers.

The content of the messages haven’t been released so it’s difficult to independently verify that claim. But the officer was reportedly fired last month after sending the deemed inappropriate text messages to other officers.

The firing only made the public media waves now, as the San Francisco Examiner reported.

“A San Francisco police officer who allegedly texted anti-Muslim messages to other officers was fired last month by the San Francisco Police Commission at the recommendation of Chief William Scott, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.

“The revelation comes during a time of reforms that, in part, sprang out of a series of biased policing scandals, including two instances in which groups of officers got caught sending racist or bigoted text messages.

“The first and most scandalous text messages were sent or received by a group of officers in 2011 and 2012, but were not revealed until several years later in a federal police corruption trial in 2015. The second incident emerged in 2016 and involved officers in the Sunset District sending messages to one another.

“In this latest case, the officer sent the message or messages on a private phone sometime between 2014 and 2015, according to sources with knowledge of the incident but who did not want their names published….

“In the latest case, the officer allegedly attempted to right his wrong by volunteering at an Islamic center and educate himself about the faith he had allegedly disparaged, according to a lawyer close to the case….

“But Tony Brass, who represented Liu and has represented officers for the POA in the past, said the text messages were sent from one private phone to another. He also noted the officer’s effort to educate himself about Islam.

“But none of that seemed to please the police chief, said Brass.

“‘It seems like it’s a zero-tolerance situation now,’ said Brass. ‘This case seems to stand for the proposition that once the Police Department has concluded that you expressed some biased view there’s no fixing it … you’re just done.’”

Zero tolerance is right. How about zero tolerance for crimes committed by illegals — or for terrorists forming cells on American soils, under the very eyes of those who are supposed to protect us?

That’d be a good thing to have zero tolerance policy for, it seems. But a police officer who messages some offensive thoughts to fellow officers — and then hiding those so deemed offensive thoughts from the public? Not so much a concern to the average American.
