Surveillance camera footage released by San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi show San Francisco police officers physically attacking a bystander after illegally searching a hotel room and another video shows officers allegedly stealing a laptop.

“This incident, coupled with similar footage at the Henry, Royan and Jefferson hotels, indicates there are groups of officers engaging in systematic misconduct,” Adachi said.
