A recently unearthed agreement between the FBI and the San Francisco Police Department allows city cops assigned to a task force designed to combat terrorist attacks to gather intelligence on individuals even if they arent suspected of a crime, according to groups that have been in a legal fight with the SFPD over the agreement for months.
The Asian Law Caucus and the American Civil Liberties Union obtained a copy of the March 2007 agreement signed by then-Police Chief Heather Fong this week after filing a freedom of information request in November.
Under a policy established in 1990, the SFPD requires reasonable suspicion before officers are allowed to collect information on someone.

Back in the old days, San Francisco liberals being the good Marxists they are, feared investigation by the FBI and any other security agencies (including SFPD), because their links to communists, subversives, anti American organizations and their dope stash might come to light.

The FBI and cops figured a way to get around the "protect the commies" policy, and now it has come to light.
Interestingly, with Zero's injustice dept. the FBI will now use this to railroad innocent conservatives, as the entire city government of San Francisco, including the police command and intelligence staff, has gone bad.
Where are all those people that say the police will never follow ‘those’ orders?
Oh this power will never be abused. No sir...
Dead, along with the ones who said: "The (fill in the blank with the name of the nation) army will never fire on the people."
“Where are all those people that say the police will never follow those orders?”
