SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- San Francisco Sheriff Vicki Hennessy said Tuesday she wants to change the city’s press credentialing system after four journalists said they were injured while trying to cover a demonstration Friday night inside City Hall. The four journalists — two San Francisco City College students, one San Francisco State University student and one reporter — filed formal complaints against the sheriff’s office over injuries they sustained while reporting on the raucous protest that called for the firing of Police Chief Greg Suhr and resulted in 33 detentions and citations.
