This is the tale of Glenn Duffie Shriver, badly told:
Here’s a fresh announcement from our local FBI:
“FBI Seeking Public’s Help Regarding Destruction of an Energy Facility, Disruption of Communication Lines Case - FBI San Francisco, April 10, 2014, Peter D. Lee, (415) 553-7450
The FBI San Francisco Field Office is seeking the public’s help regarding the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) Metcalf power substation shooting and AT&T fiber optic cable incident that occurred on April 16, 2013.
On the 16th at approximately 1:40 a.m., the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and San Jose Police Department received multiple phone calls of gunshots in the area of Monterey Road and Blanchard Road in San Jose, California.
That morning, an unknown individual(s) cut two groups of fiber optic cables and used a 7.62 caliber rifle to shoot 10 transformer bays. The individual(s) should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information is urged to contact their nearest FBI office or dial 911. The FBI can be reached 24 hours a day at 415-553-7400 in the San Francisco area. All calls are confidential. Tips can also be submitted at: tips.fbi.gov.
Members of the media should contact FBI Media Representative Peter Lee at 415-553-7450.”
This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.
Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:
Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?
Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?
And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?
But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.
The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”
“UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
Case Number: 140281005
I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!
Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4
Location: Post & Taylor
Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)
At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”
And now a word for the trolls:
“Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!
The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.
On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.
One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”
On It Goes
First it was all like this, a Hipster Love Story on Oak near Divis:
Divisadero Corridor, “keepin’ Divis real.”
That was last year. More recently, somebody put”FUCK YOU” atop that piece using gold spray paint.
(That’s the sort of thing that will get the landowner a fix-it note from SFGov.)
Anywho, it’s all gone now, baby.
Here’s the replacement:

On It Goes….
Does the SFPD drive its big Ford Crown Victorias ‘neath the first reinforced concrete bridge built in America just to chat with area drug dealers? Yes, yes it does. Officers simply drive past the world’s smallest lake (sadly just two-star rated) and then under Kezar Drive.

And then they hang a left to do a little 2WD off-roading.
Oh, what’s this, lazy drug dealers who don’t know enough to run away? In this case yes. But in other cases, more motivated dealers hoof it up the hill and across three lanes of traffic on Kezar Drive.
On it Goes…
Impressive verticality, relevant message, such graffiti:

It’s Bayshore, baby!
“Essentially the discarded skin of the 101 freeway - Bayshore Boulevard used to be the freeway, until the currently used “James Lick Freeway” was built in the 1950s.”
But anyway, this kind of graffiti on 101 South allows the underlying sign to perform its function, so CalTrans is likely to leave things alone for a while:
But artwork like this is intolerable – Caltrans didn’t allow it for too long:
See how the Staties handled this particular sign right here, at a webpage that will amaze you.
But please, parasites, please remember not to kill the host – that’s the #1 rule of parasitism, right?
