First, police fatally shot two minority suspects carrying knives. Then transcripts surfaced showing officers using racial slurs in text messages. Finally, a young black woman was shot dead as police tried to pull her from a stolen car.
The woman's shooting death Thursday was the tipping point for San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who forced Police Chief Greg Suhr to step down after months of mounting pressure.
The new chief inherits the daunting task of turning around a troubled department in a city deeply divided by race and doing it fast.
"Reforms, reforms, reforms," acting Police Chief Toney Chaplin said Friday when asked about his priorities.

Sounds like a tough job - reconciling White homos and Black homos, Hispanic homos and Asian homos.
I thought they were divided by freak show people and non freak show people.
What? How can this be? Only Southern ‘red’ states are deeply divided by race. /s
Isn't that the way liberals want it.
There is no race problem. Only problem , low IQ duds are running San Francisco. They know how to escape from problem, they never solve any problem.
Now they charge street parking fee during weekend. Stupid.
A totally liberal democrat city.
San Francisco is known as being one of the least racially divided cities in America. More evidence of the consequences of liberal control over several decades. Now it’s deeply divided by their racism.
I know! I know! Call on me, I know!!
According to the 2010 Census, only 6% of SF residents are black. That’s less than half of the national percentage.
Most of the blacks in the Bay Area live closer to Oakland and Richmond up towards Vallejo.
Typical White Liberal Hypocrites. Easy to be liberal when there aren’t a lot of blacks in your city, because you price them out.
Clearly everyone is fighting tooth and nail to get as much diversity as possible. How can this happen when the people are so against it!
One HUGE Beer Summit will solve this.
What more could these criminals and their supporters want?
I know. They want all cops out of their city! Yeah, that's the ticket...
If ever there was a city ripe for a cop strike, it's SF. Blue Flu as far as the eye can see...for an entire week.
Don't issue demands, just do it. Walk out for a week and don't say anything to anybody.
You’d think the open air urinals in San Francisco would have brought about bonding among the races. /s
I’m shocked there could be any racial issues in SF. Its a liberal paradise. Liberals tell us they aren’t racist or bigoted. Liberals are so enlightened and sophisticated. Liberals dominate the social and political life of SF. How can this be happening??
