This (about 20 sellers all in a row) is the most I’ve seen all in one place at one time.

The SFPD knows all about this – sometimes they care, but most of the time they don’t.

And best of all, after you purchase a bunch of food, you can go across the street to buy a stolen iPhone.

Remember, “Mayor Ed Lee Get’s It Done!”

“Run Ed Run!”

    I see them lining up outside food pantries, picking up these bags of groceries. Then they head straight down to 6th and Market and sell them off.

    Very interesting. I had no idea. I wonder what percentage of people who bus in to the Mission for the bread lines re-sell the food instead of consume it directly? And is that somehow immoral? Certainly it doesn’t pass the smell test, but when you think about it, they are desperate enough to bus across town and wait in line for a few groceries, so they are subsisting on the food, just not eating it directly… right?
