Judge says no penalty for SFPD officers who exchanged racist and homophobic texts

Judge Ernest Goldsmith ruled that the seven officers investigated for the messages they exchanged with their former sergeant (fired and convicted of corruption last year) could not face punishment because the strict one-year statute of limitations had expired. All of the officers will be keeping their jobs.

The officers had not only exchanged graphically offensive white supremacy comments but also described killing black people. You can read highlights from the texts here.
