Before he became the director of San Francisco’s Department of Police Accountability, Paul Henderson had been a top mayoral adviser, a prosecutor and a sought-after lecturer and media guest. He says he’s been detained and arrested eight times for things he didn’t do, and that on his first day in court as an assistant D.A., the judge mistook him for a defendant and lectured him about where to sit. Now, he runs the city agency that audits police practices and issues policy recommendations, and he says the city needs honest conversation and inclusive citizen participation to meaningfully address racism. | Unlimited Chronicle access: sfchronicle.com/pod
