San Francisco police chief Greg Suhr resigns after officer shot unarmed black woman San Francisco's scandal-hit police chief has resigned hours after a city officer killed an unarmed black woman. Greg Suhr stepped down Thursday following a request from Mayor Ed Lee as a result of a series of controversies. Police shootings have created mounting racial tensions with minorities and have led to criticism against the department. A group of officers were also caught sending racist and homophobic text messages to colleagues. The 27-year-old black victim shot dead on Thursday was reportedly sitting behind the wheel of a stolen car. San Francisco's police chief Greg Suhr (pictured) has resigned hours after a city officer killed an unarmed black woman The 27-year-old black victim shot dead on Thursday was reportedly sitting behind the wheel of a stolen car. Her name and the identity of the officer involved has not been released (scene pictured) A demonstrator holds a sign in protest against former San Francisco police chief Greg Suhr Officers turned on the patrol car's lights and sounded its siren, and the woman to sped off in the stolen car. A few seconds later and about 100 feet away, the stolen car slammed into a parked utility truck. The officers jumped out of the patrol car and raced to the wreckage, where the woman was revving the car in an effort to disengage the auto from the truck. Suhr said a witness reported that the officers opened the driver's door and began grabbing the woman in attempt to arrest her. At that point, a sergeant fired one fatal round. The woman's name and the identity of the officer involved have not been released.pre bonded hair It was the third fatal shooting of a suspect by San Francisco police within the past six months. Suhr stepped down Thursday following a request from Mayor Ed Lee as a result of mounting racial issues and criticism against the department The deadly incidents have prompted critics to say police in the city are too quick to use their guns, especially when confronting minorities. The shooting of Mario Woods, a black man suspected in a stabbing, in December promoted a backlash against the department. I have previously expressed confidence in Chief Suhr... But following this morning's officer-involved shooting and my meeting with Chief Suhr this afternoon, today I have arrived at a different question of how best to move forward Part of statement by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Protesters demanding Suhr's resignation drowned out the mayor's second inaugural speech in January, and demonstrators forced the mayor to abandon a planned speech on Martin Luther King Jr. Day later that month. Nonetheless, the mayor stood behind the chief, and the two announced a series of reforms aimed at reducing police shootings. The two also called in the U.S. Department of Justice to review the department's policy and procedures. But Suhr lost Lee's backing Thursday and asked for his resignation. 'This is exactly the kind of thing with all the reforms we are trying to prevent,' Suhr said Thursday, less than two hours after the shooting and before he resigned. 'The progress we've made has been meaningful, but it hasn't been fast enough,' Lee said in a brief statement at City Hall. 'Not for me, not for Greg.' A scandal had also erupted after officers within the department were accused of sending racist texts to each other.

It was the third fatal shooting of a suspect by San Francisco police within the past six months

Video courtesy: KRON Investigators found the text messages on the personal phones of former officer Jason Lai and retired Lt. Curtis Liu during criminal probes. Transcripts of the messages denigrated minority suspects with racial slurs and insulted colleagues they perceived to be gay. They ridiculed blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, where police shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black man. One of them referred to a picture of a burnt turkey as a 'Ferguson turkey'. Lai resigned in April and Lui retired last year. The unidentified officer also resigned and a fourth officer also implicated in the texting scandal Suhr declined to identify is facing dismissal before the city's Police Commission. Suhr was criticized for moving too slowly to fire the offending officers, all of whom have retained their jobs because of the chief's failure to start disciplinary action when he first found out about the inappropriate. Suhr could not be reached for comment Thursday. Lee named former deputy chief Toney Chaplin, who is black, as the new chief. Demonstrators protested against the former police chief outside City Hall. One held a sign reading 'I can no longer cry alone, I must fight in unity' Suhr was demoted from deputy chief to captain in 2009 after failing to file a police report after a female friend told him she had been assaulted by her boyfriend. (Pictured are protesters) He said in a statement: 'I have previously expressed confidence in Chief Suhr because I know he agrees with and understands the need for reform. 'But following this morning's officer-involved shooting and my meeting with Chief Suhr this afternoon, today I have arrived at a different question of how best to move forward.' Chaplin had the confidence of at least one key supporter.remy hair extensions 'Toney Chaplin has the charisma, chemistry and courage to lead this department,' said Rev. Brown 'Toney Chaplin has the charisma, chemistry and courage to lead this department,' said Rev. Amos Brown, the president of the San Francisco chapter of the NAACP. Rev. Brown had also supported Suhr through the department's difficulties, and said the police's problems 'are bigger than one man.' Lee appointed Suhr chief in 2011. He was a 34-year veteran of the department who rose through the ranks despite several professional missteps. He was demoted from deputy chief to captain in 2009 after failing to file a police report after a female friend told him she had been assaulted by her boyfriend. The city last year paid $725,000 to settle a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by a former department lawyer who recommended Suhr be fired for failing to report his friend's assault. When Suhr became chief, he fired the lawyer. Suhr was also re-assigned from head of patrol in 2005 to guarding the city's water supply, which was widely viewed as a demotion. Two years earlier, he was one of several officers indicted in the city's so-called 'Fajitagate' for allegedly trying to cover up an investigation of three off-duty officers who had beaten up a waiter and took his bag of Mexican food. The indictment was tossed out.

CURTIS LIU AND AN UNNAMED OFFICER They ridicule blacks in Ferguson, Missouri. where police shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black man, calling a picture of a burnt turkey a 'Ferguson turkey.' They discuss a shootout among black men and the shooting of an armed suspect by police. In doing so, they appear to ridicule the shooting death by police in 2014 of a mentally ill man carrying a stun gun officers mistook for a gun. They also exchanged photographs with racist captions. One photo depicts a white man playfully spraying a young black child with a garden hose.The caption calls the young boy a racial slur. San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi gestures while standing beside a picture of police officer Jason Lai, one of the officers accused of sending racist text messages There's a photo of smoke rising above San Francisco and guesses are exchanged about the origins of the fire. 'Must be Korean BBQ,' quips one. 'I heard was a slave ship!!' quips another. Texts discovered during an investigation into the ongoing 2015 sexual assault scandal involving Lai feature messages including 'F*** that n*g' and 'Indian ppl are disgusting'. Officials were reading through the huge haul of evidence when they found the messages, which had been sent by at least four officers. 'I hate that beaner,' one text read, using a derogatory word for Hispanic people. 'But I think the n*g is worse.' 'Indian ppl are disgusting,' said another message. 'Burn down walgreens and kill the bums,' a third message read. In one text Lai makes a joke about President Barack Obama and says he hates Cleveland basketball player LeBron James. 'F*** that n*g,' the text reads. In several texts, Lai makes references to 'hock gwai', which appears to be a misspelled reference to 'hak gwai', a Cantonese derogatory phrase for African Americans. In texts sent last June, the messages describe a 'bunch of hock gwais shooting each other'. 'Sprained my ankle over these barbarians,' he said. The officer texted that one of the suspects 'went to the hospital after he got shot lol'. 'Too bad none of them died,' he added. 'One less to worry about.' In an exchange that happened during the riots in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, Lai wrote, 'They're like a pack [of] wild animals on the loose', referring to African Americans. In a message sent to Lai on another occasion, a person described an 'on-duty' accident from 2015. 'Some dumb Asian chick driving for Uber didn't look and changed lanes right into my car,' the texter said. Some of Lai's texts were sent after the first scandal made headlines, and at one point made a joke about being the subject of an internal affairs investigation. 'R U READING THIS IA?' he texted.
