Community Waits for Assistant Chief Sanders
follow-up on last night's promise by assistant chief prentice sanders
<strong>COMMUNITY WAITS FOR ASSISTANT CHIEF SANDERS</strong>
Last night, Assistant Chief Sanders promised to the community to be available today to release details of the June 12th Metreon shooting to the public. When representatives of local police accountability groups began calling this morning to hold Sanders to his word, they discovered something unusual. The line was busy. And it continued to be busy. For hours. And hours. And hours.
When an Indymedia representative called Assistant Chief Sanders for comments, the line was still busy. When Indymedia called the main phone number to be connected to Sanders, an SFPD representative said that the Assistant Chief was in a meeting and that all lines except for the main SFPD phone number were being repaired and would ring busy. She then said that the Public Affairs office would be the best place to call. When asked if this number would also be ringing busy since all phones were under repair, she said that she was mistaken, and only the Assistant Chief's number was under repair.
Bay Area PoliceWatch will continue to try and get in touch with the Assistant Chief to get him to hold up to his promise to the community. For background, read this.
