Fresno City Council Members Hold Press Conference About Police Incidents

by Mike Rhodes (editor [at] fresnoalliance.com)
Fresno City Council Members Blong Xiong (district 1) and Cynthia Sterling (district 3) held a press conference this morning (2-18-09). Xiong and Sterling discussed two recent incidents involving the police department. The first incident involved three Fresno Police Department officers in the narcotics division who were arrested for their participation in a car theft operation. The second incident, which has been widely reported, was the beating of a homeless man by a FPD officer. Sterling said she is in favor of establishing an Independent Police Auditor, but is waiting for a report from mayor Ashley Swearengin, before discussing the specifics of what that IPA might look like. The entire 16:36 minute press conference is below in an .mp3 audio format.
