Videos show cops laughing about shooting suspects

San Francisco police are trying to track down a videographer who posted two short videos of two San Francisco police officers laughing and joking about shooting suspects, police said Friday.

The two videos posted to Instagram appear to show two San Francisco police officers in a restaurant or café having a discussion about evidence they would or wouldn’t want captured on body cameras.

#sfpd finest 🐷🐽 #ftp @keephoodsyours PART 1: (WATCH BOTH VIDEOS & REPOST!) Much love & solidarity to …..for sharing this with us. This was filmed at Happy Donuts on the corner of 24th St. & Church St., San Francisco. The cop is explaining to his partner what footage he does & doesn't "want" caught on their new body cameras. In this 1st video, the cop explains to his parner how what he DOES want caught on camera is a civilian pointing a gun at him & him murdering said civilian in "self-defense". Notice how he laughs & treats the subject of murdering someone as a joke. In the 2nd video, he'll explain that what his partner DOESN'T want caught on their body camera is when a civilian has their hands up & they murder them regardless. Notice how they joke about the death of a surrendering civilian, the bullet wounds & "brain splatter." #fuckyourblueline #bluevsyou

The officers discuss how they want to make sure suspects pointing a gun at them are captured on video when shot but not suspects putting their hands up. They laugh when discussing what it would look like when a suspect is shot in the chest or head.

San Francisco police do not wear body cameras but the city has been working on a policy to equip officers with them.

San Francisco police said today the department opened an investigation after becoming aware of the videos. Police are asking the person who shot the video for to contact the department’s Internal Affairs Division at (415) 575-5856.
