White Male Cops Sue San Francisco, Citing Racial Bias

A white male cop, reportedly reassigned in 2005 when his unit's refrigerator was found stocked with booze, claims he was passed over for a promotion in 2007 because of racial bias.

“The city has a longstanding custom and practice in discriminating against white males,” according to a lawsuit complaint filed Aug. 16 by officers Heinz Hofmann and Thomas Buckley.

“The reason plaintiffs were passed over for lower-ranking

minorities,” the complaint says,  “was because plaintiffs are white.”

The suit does not mention, however, that in 2005 the media reported that Hofmann was reassigned from his post

at the Department's tactical unit, after internal affairs investigators discovered the

squad's Hunters Point headquarters stocked with beer and hard liquor.
