Here’s the scene this morning at San Francisco’s Masonic and Fell – official SFPD-issue handcuffs on the bloodied wrists of this agitated fellow bleeding from his left ear. There was a sweet black Motobecane bike parked nearby, but the particulars of this particular incident, one that occupied the attention of about 20 City and County employees, aren’t all that worthy of note.
What IS interesting to note is that the intersection of Fell and Masonic is the most action-packed in the city of San Francisco, even more than Adam’s Block in the gritty Tenderloin. What somebody should do is mount a video camera up high and run it 24/7. That way, there’d be no arguments over who was at fault for whichever injury-producing incident.
And maybe, we’d have fewer problems after getting more data. And, just thinking out of the box here, why do we allow Masonic to go through the Panhandle anyway? Could we just get rid of that one block of Masonic?
Rip up some asphalt, lay down some turf, ameliorate the neighbors – man, that might be some fine urban planning right there.
