Did the SFPD’s Park Station Spend Half a Day Just Taking Shopping Carts Away from Homeless People? Yes – Shift Log

Well here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“Our zero tolerance for quality of life violations is continuing. We are recovering many misappropriated shopping carts.”

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.

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

I wonder what led to this policy…
