San Francisco DA to prohibit officers with history of misconduct from being hired (story)
A friend on Facebook writes “Wait, they’re just making this a rule now???”
Unfortunately yes. It appears that the contracts that police unions sign with cities often have many loopholes that explicitly let officers get away with misconduct.

Their publicly viewable database has ~500 examples of police contracts that explicitly let police get away with a tremendous amount of poor behavior. I hope this situation improves.
