Public Comment at SFPD Commission Meeting Prompts Sudden Recess

A controversial meeting of the San Francisco Police Commission suddenly went into recess this evening after one speaker refused to step down at the end of her allotted time in public comment.

The meeting, which began around 5:30 p.m., was stopped suddenly around 7:45 p.m.

At that time a member of the commission could be heard urging sheriff’s deputies to back away from the woman in question.

Before that, many members of the public criticized the fatal police shooting of Mario Woods last Wednesday, as well as other recent controversies involving the San Francisco Police Department, with numerous individuals demanding the resignation or dismissal of Chief Greg Suhr.

As of 8 p.m. this evening, the meeting had not yet resumed.
