Vigilante Update: I Don’t Know, I’d Like to See the San Francisco Guardian Angels Try to Take Alcohol Away From Me

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Do you know how the San Francisco Chapter of the Guardian Angels rolls?

This is how they roll.

They’s out of control, IMO.

On patrol with an area journalist.

They steal alcohol from people.

But not from me.

So far.

Go ahead, Make My Day, SFGA.

Did Hearst Editor-At-Large Phil Bronstein Really Go On Patrol with the Guardian Angels in the Mission Last Friday?

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Dragon-fighting alligator wrestler Phil Bronstein claims to have gone on patrol with the out-of-control San Francisco Chapter of the Guardian Angels last Friday en la Mision, but, but there have been zero (0) reports of concomitant mayhem since then.

I smell a rat.

Mission Mission had something something about it, but where are accounts, where are the reports of something like a couple dozen Norteños checking into the SF General?

I mean, is this a real photo?

Resolved: Our Local Chapter of the Guardian Angels is OUT OF CONTROL – Pouring Out Your Beer in Dolores Park?

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Let me tell you about back in the day when the Guardian Angels patrolled the Streets of San Francisco, back before your days at Wellesley.

Everything was fine for SFGA until The Incident in the 1990′s - after that, the Angels Had To Go Away. Carolyn Jones has the deets:

“One day the Angels chased down an apparent drug offender, slammed him so hard to the sidewalk his head was cut open, and proceeded to handcuff him. They let up just long enough for the alleged perpetrator to show his police badge. Shortly thereafter, the Angels all but disbanded in San Francisco.”

But now the San Francisco Chapter is back, baby, and back bigtime.

See?

Now, let’s hear from them, through CHAPTER LEADER/JERRY LONGORIA/J.D.: 

Dolores Park Patrol 9/24/10

Friday September 24th 2010, we the San Francisco Guardian Angels will be doing a night patrol at Dolores Park tonight. The reason for this patrol in this area is the parties. At our headquarters we were getting in calls and reports about the drugs, the drinking, and the fighting, that has been going on in this area.”
 
Now, can I go and patrol D.P. if I want to as well? Really?
 
“Next we march on, we march around the park, we march through the park, it was not as bad as we thought it would be. Or maybe the word had got out that the angels where coming into this area, who knows. The highlight of the night was pouring out beers for drinking in public, but that’s OK because these bad guys respected us for doing it, they knew this was breaking the law. Well J.D. is calling it a night, there is not much else that can be done in this area.”
 
Our Guardian Angels enforce open container laws? Really? I’d like to see them try to pour my beer out. Srsly.
 
“We do get to our stop at 16th street BART STATION, we get on bus #14, we get to our stop at 6th street. But as we where a block away from our stop a gang banger jump on the bus for free, we look at this guy real good, and as soon as we got to our stop we asked the guy to get off the bus with us and he did. We then hand cuff this guy, we then search this guy, but this guy was our second in command (Scorpion). He really tried to pull one on us, but we showed him because we were ready for anything.”
 
Our Guardians Angels can go around searching and handcuffing people? Really? What’s next – are they going to start scanning Clipper Cards and asking for proof of payment on MUNI?
 
Now, back in colledge, they learned us about the criminal law – but not California’s per se, just generic, 50-state law. Anyway, off the top of my head, let’s see here, our GA’s need to worry about possible civil and criminal liability for:
 
Assault
 
Battery
 
False arrest
 
Kidnapping
 
(And speaking of kidnapping, remember when Iconic GA Founder Curtis Sliwa himself got kidnapped by transit police in NYC? Well, turns out that story was all made up, oh well.)
 
The point is that it’s tricky to navigate citizens’ arrest laws, not that this should be big news to anybody.
 
Anywho, based on the above report, I surmise the San Francisco Chapter of the Guardian Angels is out of control.

Actual Marines at the Marines’ Memorial Hotel in San Francisco?

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Whenever I’ve visited the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel in Union Square at 609 Sutter Street, I’ve pretty much only seen gaggles of besweatered Junior Leaguers or suited-up bidnessmen having some event upstairs.

So I forgot about the Marines’ Memorial Association’s main function: letting active duty personnel stay in a nice hotel in Union Square for dirt cheap.
