How Sweet! Police Chief Clowns Around For The Poor Kids

Day 2 of the standard SFPD/Chronicle pre-scandal public relations blitz:

(Photo) Police Chief Lau Clowns around for the poor kids.
Oh my word – he’s such a nice man.
I love the SFPD more than ever!
What’s that you say - he’s trying to cover-up an unjustifiable police killing?
Impossible – he put on a clown hat for the poor kids – I don’t believe it.

Believe it.
Chief Lau is willing to put on his clown hat and “help” the poor kids when the SFPD Public Relations Officer tells him to – but won’t help Idriss Stelley’s family and friends get answers to basic questions about his death.
It’s been over two months since Idriss was killed and the SFPD continues to delay the release of names - of the officers involved and of witnesses.
