13 current and former San Francisco cops are now suing the city, after alleging that they were discriminated against regarding promotions due to their skin color. As CBS reports:
Thirteen present and former San Francisco police officers sued the city in federal court Tuesday, claiming that they have been discriminated against in promotions because they are white.Twelve plaintiffs are current officers who allege they were passed over for promotions to sergeant, lieutenant or captain because they are white males. The other plaintiff is a retired sergeant who contends she was passed over for promotion to lieutenant because she is a white lesbian.
The lawsuit claims violations of federal and state anti-discrimination laws and constitutional rights. It asks for an injunction barring the alleged bias and for compensatory and punitive financial awards.
The defendants include the city, the Police Department, the Police Commission, Mayor London Breed, former Mayor Mark Farrell, Police Chief Bill Scott and former Chief Greg Suhr.
We can only hope these brave first responders receive the justice they are due.
Everything Democratic liberals touch turns into a pile of soft smelly brown stuff!
What is so upsetting and wrong, is that the whole discrimination fight has turned upside down. In an effort to “correct the injustices” of the past, these moronic Liberals, who think they are SOOOOO smart, have tipped the scales in the total opposite direction. Now, you are a criminal if you are NOT BLACK and believe in equal justice and equal opportunities for ALL OF US. If we let these elitists run the Country, VENEZUELA is just a decade or less away!!!!!
The left will scoff at this lawsuit. Of this, I have no doubt. But, I say let those current and past officers present their evidence in court rather then in the court of public opinion. If their assertions are true, then San Francisco must pay the consequences of discrimination regardless whether it’s against whites or blacks. We must have no discrimination and equal justice for all or there will be no justice for anyone.
I agree San Francisco is going down a path that will lead to its demise. Perhaps even all of California too. You will not change the minds of those leftist/socialist/communist politicians who advocate for leftist ideals since they’re convinced they are right. When chaos eventually reigns and the majority of San Francisco’s and possibly California’s voters pay a heavy price for voting these people into office, perhaps then we’ll see sanity restored in the once thriving and beautiful city of San Francisco and all of California. Or perhaps not and insanity will reign supreme.
So “payback” comes to people who probably had nothing to do with what happened years ago”? It’s actually a 2019 version of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”. If a non corrupt judge and jury even exists there these cops deserve millions. This is going on all over the country where blacks are being elevated way beyond their competency level for the only reason is they have brown skin.
It does hurt when you get a taste of your own medicine, that other than white has had to put up with for years.
