From: Anonymous Person

Chief Scott and Police Department,

Below are Immediate Disclosure Requests (SF Admin Code 67.25(a)). Your initial response is required by June 4, 2020. Rolling records responses are requested (SFAC 67.25(d)) if you are unable to immediately produce all records. Exact copies of every responsive record are requested (Gov Code 6253(b)) - do not print and scan electronic records or provide black and white versions of any color record. Provide only copies of records not requiring fees and in-person inspection of all other records (GC 6253).

Your non-exhaustive obligations: All withholding of any information must be justified (SFAC 67.27). All withholdings by masking or deletion (aka redactions) must be keyed by footnote or other clear reference to justification and only the minimal exempt portion of a record may be withheld (SFAC 67.26). Respond to emailed requests (SFAC 67.21(b)). You must notify us of whether or not responsive records exist and/or were withheld for each below request (Gov Code 6253(c), 6255(b)). You must state the name and title of each person responsible for withholding any information (Gov Code 6253(d)). You must do all of this in your response, and you cannot wait until we file complaints. If you wait to comply with the Sunshine Ordinance until after we file complaints, we will not withdraw any complaints and request SOTF find you in violation, regardless of what you do after filing.

****** We have no duty to, and we will not again, remind the City of its obligations. Instead, we will file complaints for every Sunshine Ordinance or CPRA violation. We will continue to file complaints until your procedures are modified to fully comply with the Sunshine Ordinance and CPRA, without caveat or exception. ******

1. Each email, text, or chat message SENT by any SFPD employee to any other City employee between January 1, 2020 and June 2, 2020 (inclusive) containing any of the following case-insensitive keywords: "nigger" "nigga" "niggah" OR "nigguh". Personal property pursuant to City of San Jose v Superior Court (2017) must be searched. PLEASE NOTE WE NEED THE ORIGINAL EMAILS SENT OR RECEIVED BY THE EMPLOYEES INCLUDING ANY "BCC" RECIPIENTS. If you instead "forward" the email, it may unlawfully withhold certain headers like the BCC. Include all attachments and images. Text or chat messages must preserve timestamps, sender and recipient names, message content and all attachments including photos.

Please indicate "no responsive records" for each request if that is true.

NOTE: Please be certain you have properly redacted all of your responses. Once you send them to us, there is no going back. The email address sending this request is a publicly- viewable mailbox. All of your responses (including all responsive records) may be instantly and automatically available to the public online via the MuckRock.com FOIA service used to issue this request (though the requester is an anonymous user, not a representative of MuckRock). Nothing herein is legal, IT, or professional advice of any kind. The author disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to all warranties of merchantability or fitness. In no event shall the author be liable for any special, direct, indirect, consequential, or any other damages whatsoever. The digital signature, if any, in this email is not an indication of a binding agreement or offer; it merely authenticates the sender. Please do not include any confidential information, as I intend that these communications with the City all be disclosable public records.
