This would be on about 100 feet of Ashbury in the 94117, both sides of the street, so generally you’ll have 4 or 5 rides parked there on both sides, so that’s ten spaces.
What do you think the report rate is for people who’ve lost a bunch of windows the past several years? I think it’s not high. So when the media / popo report on a reduction of car break-ins, I think they should take pains to specify it’s the reported rate what’s fallen.
Anyway, my advice would be to leave your glove box and consoles and coin trays open at night…
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Denies SFPOA Attempt to Block Use of Force Policy Implementation
San Francisco, CA – Supervisor Malia Cohen issued the following statement today regarding Judge Richard Ulmer’s denial of the San Francisco Police Officers Association’s (POA) request for a temporary restraining order to block implementation of the updated Use of Force policy for the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD):
“We are committed to supporting progressive, forward-thinking policies that provide necessary reform for SFPD, including giving the 20 year old Use of Force policy an update that brings it in line with 21st century policing strategies and our 21st century values as a city,” said Supervisor Cohen. “Judge Ulmer’s dismissal of the POA’s unnecessary lawsuit sends a clear signal that it is time for us to move on from this dispute over shooting at moving vehicles and using carotid restraint. The City will continue to work towards the highest caliber of reform that is in the best interest of both citizen and police safety. It is time for the POA to join that reform movement.”
The policy was passed by the San Francisco Police Commission last Wednesday, December 21, 2016. The lawsuit, filed by the POA last Tuesday, focused on two components of the new policy: the ban on using carotid restraint (a tactic that can slip into a fatal chokehold) and the more notorious restriction on shooting at moving vehicles.
Chief labor attorney Katie Porter defended the City’s right to update the policy with better practices that are in line with the recommendations of policing experts, such as the Department of Justice and President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Judge Ulmer agreed with the clearly written case law: setting a comprehensive Use of Force policy for SFPD is in the City’s scope of management decisions.”
“Affected members of the UC Hastings Public Safety officer’s unit have been presented various employment options if they meet required qualifications, as police officers, security guards, or security guard supervisors for the UCSF Police Department. For officers who do not qualify (or elect to not apply) for jobs with the UCSF Police Department or alternative positions with UC Hastings, the College will offer conscientious separation terms.”
So that’s that – the oldest and largest law school in the West is now a little closer to the UC Family.
First, the corner of Golden Gate and Leavenworth was all like this:
But then it got hounded by SFGov, so it went away
And then, oddly, it became 826 Valencia:
But around the corner, you see that BIG BOY MARKET is still making money off of the intersection of Golden Gate and Leavenworth, through advertising:
Hey, do I question whether the “real problems” of the Twitterloin originate(d?) from a “handful of lawless corner stores” the way CWNevius says?
