Well here’s the MacGuffin, what the drama the other day at the “ghetto Lucky” on Fulton near Masonic was all about – a 1.75 litre bottle of Old Whiskey River Whiskey from (Willie) Nelson County, Kentucky.

Anyway, that was what was dropped outside of the Lucky on Saturday, just by the eastern entrance.
And just beyond that towards the street was this scene. Can you see the little dude wrapping his arms around the legs of the big guy? I think that’s what they call tactics:
And then ka-thud on the sidewalk of Fulton:
Out come the handcuffs from the undercover agent (called “the L.T.” [lieutenant?] by Lucky employees):
And then it’s past the place where the shoplifted whiskey got dropped and back into the store to wait for the SFPD. Just another day in Paradise south of McBaker and west of the HayBro, just another day in the NoPA, Western Addition, San Francisco, California, USA:
Does this particular Lucky lose lots of alcohol on lazy Saturday and Sunday afternoons?
Well, considering that Lucky hires people just to lie in wait for shoplifters, I’d say yes.
Take it away, Mo:
Learn to love me
Assemble the ways
Now, today, tomorrow and always
My only weakness is a listed crime
My only weakness is … well, never mind, never mind
