Phone Script for SF Mayor's Office
Call the mayor to stop SFPD's practice of tweeting the photos, names and alleged crimes of individuals they arrest
Hello, my name is _______ and my zip code is _______. I am part of Indivisible SF.
I am extremely concerned about the SFPDs practice of tweeting photos, names and alleged crimes of individuals arrested by the SFPD. Not only is this a huge invasion of privacy, but it also puts the suspected individuals and their families at risk, by publicizing their names and pictures.
Even more disturbing is that the practice is a gross violation of their civil rights, as it is tantamount to a presumption of guilt without benefit of trial by jury. The Tenderloin station has been especially aggressive in its posting of such tweets, which smacks of the bigotry and racism the SFPD is so vehemently trying to deny. I insist that the SFPD stop this practice immediately!
