SF Mayor Lee Supports Chief Suhr's Police Reforms

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has announced today a series of police reforms that aim at improving  public safety and rebuilding the trust between the San Francisco police department and the community.  In the wake of the Mario Woods killing in early December, which outraged the community and led to a series of  protests, Mayor Lee had ordered a plan to reform the police use of force. Since then, the majority of the police commission's hearings have been packed. Many advocates are against tasers that chief of police Greg Suhr is asking for as a non lethal alternative to the use of force. Mayor lee held a press conference at his office this morning and Pacifica's Nina Pareja was there and filed this report.
