Police Commission Hearing, Jan. 23, 2013
" 2009 data show that while African Americans make up 6% of San Francisco’s population, they accounted for 54% of drug sales arrests and 40% of drug possession arrests in the city. "
"If there are objective criminal justice goals and standards to justify these stark arrest disparities that are unique to San Francisco, then local authorities would seem obligated to provide detailed explanation."
