Skip to comments.SFPD officer fired for anti-Muslim text message is example of department’s ‘zero-tolerance’ policy

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.
The latest text was discovered through a District Attorneys Office investigation into a group of Taraval Station officers, whose own racist texts were made public by the Public Defenders Office in 2016 after they received court documents related to the messages.
The Taraval Station officers include Jason Lai and Curtis Liu, both of whom have since left the force. Their messages were discovered during a District Attorneys Office criminal investigation involving an alleged sexual assault.
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.

I'd also bet that if the texts were anti-Christian in nature there'd have been no repercussions.
Dirty Harry wouldn’t last one shift in today’s SFPD.....the “Punks” are now running the city!!!! (along with the rest of CA;) /s
Hang in there everyone! The PC crap is going to go down for good soon.
The idiots in Frisco should be worried about a North Korean ICBM heading their way, not a police officer’s text message.
Yep. Evil people embrace evil and vice (in our “Justice” system LOL).
They embrace and celebrate sodomizing others, and evil vile, irrational religions, like Islam where group-think is all that is allowed with hate and mutilation and polygamy for women.
Truth has been banned. They actually banned truth and freedom in the 60s using our “Justice” system and unconstitutional laws to promote baby-killing as a “Natural” Right—same with sodomizing others, and polygamy of muslims.
Why is it legal to be “muslim” when their religion is antithetical with our Constitution and entire”Justice” System??? Justice Systems can’t promote “laws” which are antithetical with our Constitution-—the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.
The evil Marxists have destroyed our Justice System and made it a Vice System which will destroy our country. Promoting Vice in a “Just Law” is impossible.......and that is why we will collapse. It is all irrational-—totally insane where Slavery is Freedom, Vice is Virtue and Boys can be Girls (Marxist “utopia”).
San Francisco is the most beautiful city on da erf, but as Shakespeare once wrote, “The devil hath power to assume the most pleasing shape.”
He needs to move to Texas
Officers Lai and Liu.
The "Dirty Harry" I believe in, would be sooo off pi$$$ed by this crap, he'd empty his six round .44 mag, drop the spent cases, reload, repeat as many times as necessary. Till all problems are resolved.
Muslims and Islam is the new hands off just like Russia was in WWII, and we can see where that went.
Not until all leftists are d e a d.
I will believe it when I see it.
