Nearly half of SF police use-of-force cases last year involved black people [sfchronicle.com]

The 2015 killing of Mario Woods sparked protests across the Bay Area and reforms within the Police Department. Jones and others hoped to see real shifts in police conduct in San Francisco, but by at least one important measure, little has changed.
