Gascon apologizes to Middle Eastern community
Friday, April 02, 2010
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Hundreds of Middle Eastern Muslims came to hear SFPD Chief George Gascon say he was sorry on Friday afternoon for something he said. His very public "mea culpa" took place in a San Francisco hotel ballroom.
Gascon didn't say a word as his entourage pushed through a crowd of photographers. He was headed into a meeting with close to 1,000 Muslims who had gathered to hear him apologize.
"I am very sorry that I offended you, and I offended the Afghani community as well as other Middle Eastern and Muslim communities. That was never my intent," he said.
What Gascon reportedly said 10 days ago was that the Hall of Justice building was susceptible to a terror attack from a member of the San Francisco Middle Eastern community.
