Here’s the Answer: Yes the SFPD _Does_ Have a New Policy of Taking Shopping Carts Away from Homeless People

Per commenter bd3517:

“According to the 1/24/13 Park Station Newsletter in that week they recovered 11 shopping carts, describing it as misappropriation of property. An example entry from the report:‘Officer Diskin recovered a misappropriated shopping cart and admonished the culprit who had misappropriated it.’”

This is what it looks like.

And stage right:

Park Station didn’t confiscate shopping carts like this before.

I wonder what led to this policy.
