Adam Jackson, of the famous 24-hour Tenderloin webcam website Adam’sBlock.com, received a death threat this morning. All the attention he’s paid to the intersection at Taylor and Ellis must have rubbed somebody the wrong way. Related via Twitter:
“Just received my first death threat. Time to start rethinking my privacy. Fame sucks”
Well that’s too bad. This site is proving popular and it’s getting all kinds of attention. Adam is not correct when he states he lives in the “worst neighborhood in San Francisco” (we know that because you can still get pizza delivery during the day at least). (But it IS home to felony arrests, vanishing construction workers, adventurous 49′ers cheerleaders (sort of), Little Saigon, effective red light cameras, and, of course, concrete and clay and general decay.)
Adam’s recordings could help crime victims and the wrongfully acused as well, so that’s a good thing.
Let’s be careful out there.
