San Fran Police ‘Disgraced’ by Racist, Homophobic Texts
Text messages allegedly exchanged between San Francisco police officers on their personal phones contained enough homophobic and racist content to shatter the scale on political incorrectness.
San Francisco’s police chief says a series of racist, homophobic text messages revealed in federal court documents “disgraced” his department and that he’s going to do his best to fire the officers involved, SF Gate reports.
“It makes me sick to my stomach to even have these guys around,” San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr told SF Gate.
The texts came to light when former Sgt. Ian Furminger, convicted in December for his role in stealing from drug suspects, attempted to get out on bail while awaiting appeal. Prosecutors bent on making sure that didn’t happen used the text messages against him.
So what did the texts say?
The documents reported by KQED show conversations allegedly between multiple officers that ran the gamut of racism and homophobia, taking shots at several minorities while calling multiple people “fags.”
Straight from the court documents, here are some of Furminger’s worst alleged texts:
- “We got two blacks at my boys [sic] school and they are brother and sister! There cause dadworks for the school district and I am watching them like hawks.”
- In response to a text saying, “Do you celebrate quanza [sic] at your school?” Furminger replied:“Yeah we burn the cross on the field! Then we celebrate Whitemas.”
- “Its [sic] worth every penny to live here [Walnut Creek] away from the savages.”
- “Those guys are pretty stupid! Ask some dumb ass questions you would expect from a blackrookie! Sorry if they are your buddies!”
- “The buffalo soldier was why the Indians Wouldnt [sic] shoot the niggers that found for theconfederate They [sic] thought they were sacred buffalo and not human.”
- “My wife has 2 friends over that don’t know each other the cool one says to me get me a drinknigger not knowing the other is married to one just happened right now LMFAO.”
- In response to a text saying “Niggers should be spayed,” Furminger replied: “I saw one an hourago with 4 kids.”
- “I am leaving it like it is, painting KKK on the sides and calling it a day!”
- “Cross burning lowers blood pressure! I did the test myself!”
- In response to a text saying “All niggers must fucking hang,” Furminger replied: “Ask my 6 yearold what he thinks about Obama.”
- In response to a text saying “Just boarded train at Mission/16th,” Furminger replied: “Ok, justwatch out for BM’s” [black males].
- “I hate to tell you this but my wife friend [sic] is over with their kids and her husband is black!If [sic] is an Attorney but should I be worried?” Furminger’s friend, an SFPD officer, replied: “Get ur pocket gun. Keep it available in case the monkey returns to his roots. Its[sic] not against the law to put an animal down.” Furminger responded, “Well said!”
- In response to a text from a different SFPD officer about the promotion of a black officer, Furminger wrote: “Fuckin nigger.”
