SAN FRANCISCO — After two recent fatal police shootings in San Francisco, one by city officers and the other by a BART officer on a train platform, the agencies each withheld the same piece of information - the names of the shooters.
San Francisco officials cited a department policy meant to protect officers and their careers. BART officials said they were barred by a far-reaching 2006 California Supreme Court decision that protects police disciplinary records.
