Looks like the San Francisco Police Department has kind of a mess on its hands.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon announced yesterday that his office had discovered even more racist and homophobic texts by city police officers, in addition to the several that were uncovered last year.

The texting scandal began when 14 SFPD officers were outed for exchanging racist and homophobic texts with one another between 2014 and 2015. Now, Gascon says five more officers have been discovered engaging in offensive messaging, writing texts that “used the N-word profusely and were also derogatory toward members of the LGBT community.”

“It is horrifying from a purely operational point: Here we go again, having to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how many cases were impacted,” Gascon said at a press conference. “On a moral level, it is also horrifying because it shows that racial and homophobic bias is impacting the quality of the administration of justice.”

The previous scandal led to a total of 13 pending criminal cases being dismissal. Despite this, no officers were fired because a judge ruled the department had waited too long to discipline them.

In response to yesterday’s bombshell, the SFPD released a statement saying it “acted immediately” to reprimand the officers involved in the scandal, though two of them had since left the department and therefore could not be disciplined.

Martin Halloran, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association, issued a statement in response to “the appalling racist behavior committed by a handful of officers.”

“They have disgraced the uniform and their profession,” Halloran said. “This conduct will not be tolerated in the SFPD nor in the POA. Chief Suhr has the full support of the POA to take appropriate disciplinary action that protects the due process rights of the officers.”
