Four Calif. officers cleared in '04 shooting
The suspect was fatally shot by police after a car chase
San Francisco Chronicle
SAN FRANCISCO — Four San Francisco police officers who had faced possible dismissal for a 2004 shooting death that caused an uproar in the Western Addition have been cleared of all disciplinary charges, five years after the case against them was filed.
The city's civilian-run police watchdog agency filed a disciplinary complaint against the officers one year after 29-year-old Cammerin Boyd was shot to death May 5, 2004, after a car chase. The complaint accused two of the officers of using excessive force and two others of wrongly chasing Boyd, who was a suspect in an attempted kidnapping.
