A grand jury indicted six current or former San Francisco police officers in a corruption probe that has been literally years in the making. The cops’ behavior first made headlines in 2011, when San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi released videos showing police performing illegal searches in SOMA residential hotels late 2010 and early 2011. A Federal criminal investigation was announced, and it looks to now be bearing fruit.
For a while it looked like this might all just disappear, as cases against police often do. It looks like the Feds are sticking with it.
