Anarchists torpedo Greg Suhr's career
Uber political cop Greg Suhr's career torpedoed by rampaging anarchists.
Deputy Chief Greg Suhr is on his way out of the SFPD and for that, we should celebrate.
Suhr was elevated from Lieutenant to Captain the Mission Police Station in 1998. He was then promoted to Commander in 2002 and to Deputy Chief in 2004. This represented a meteoric rise for this politically saavy cop.
But a few anarchists rampaging through the Mission one July evening managed to administer the coup d'grace to a career that was already careening absent the support of the narc and vice squad which was dominant in the Fagan/Lau/Sanders era but is under subtle threat in the Fong regime.
Rarely does direct random action, raging against the machine bring lasting change as much as it provides for emotional salve for restless youth. But in this case, the random forces at work combined to make it that anarchists torpedoed the career of a cop who represented a continued and more powerful threat to our neighborhoods as he rose in power.
Viva la anarquia!
but we still have to pay this fucker's retirement, $175K/yr and he's only 45 years old.
