This is the second racist texting scandal in two years at the San Francisco police department.

CNN has exclusively obtained a list of dozens of offensive texts sent to and from Officer Jason Lai. The content has not been previously disclosed. The list is not a full history of his texts.

Lai resigned from the department earlier this month, according to a police spokesman.

Don Nobles, Lai’s attorney, said the texts were “not reflective of who he is” and that “there is no evidence he carried out any of those sentiments as an officer.”

“He was well liked and well loved on his beat,” he said of the six-year-veteran.
