I just noticed that links to SFGate’s coverage of the arraignment of accused molester Richard Hastings of the SFPD are broken. There is still coverage via ABC Local. Keep in mind that this same cop has been accused by some of shooting a young black man to death over bus fare in the Bay View neighborhood of San Francisco.
March 7th has come and went, no coverage of that preliminary hearing. It might well be normal to avoid reporting on every legal maneuver, but given this cop’s habit of slithering away, no matter how bad things look, combined with pulled coverage from SFGate, looks suspicious to an outsider like me.
