What People are Thinking But Not Saying About the Michael Petrelis / Supervisor Scott Wiener Peeping Tom ConvictionFriday, June 14th, 2013
“Scott Wiener was standing at the urinal and had just started to tinkle as I entered and the camera took 4-6 seconds to focus, enough time for him to put away his wiener and zipper up.”
Of course when I think of the word “peeking,” I’m thinking it’s to:
“Look quickly, typically in a furtive manner.”
Now let’s see how California Penal Code subdivision 647(j) might apply here:
“647. Except as provided in subdivision (l), every person who commits any of the following acts is guilty of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor…
…(j) (1) Any person who looks through a hole or opening, into, or otherwise views, by means of any instrumentality, including, but not limited to, a periscope, telescope, binoculars, camera, motion picture camera, camcorder, or mobile phone, the interior of a bedroom, bathroom, changing room, fitting room, dressing room, or tanning booth, or the interior of any other area in which the occupant has a reasonable expectation of privacy, with the intent to invade the privacy of a person or persons inside. This subdivision shall not apply to those areas of a private business used to count currency or other negotiable instruments.”
So, where’s the “injustice” here?
I’m not seeing it.
Les mise-en-scene. (This shot could be used to show how the mirrors on the second-floor bathroom at City Hall were mounted too low, just saying)
“It gives me great pleasure to announce that my legal hassle with an elected official, after he abused the power of his office as a member of the Board of Supervisors to put me through the law enforcement wringer over eight months and waste $26,000 in City dollars, has concluded.”
…is wrong. It’s the kind of thing you’d say after getting acquitted perhaps, but it doesn’t apply to this case, IMO.
And this too…
“Had I taken a photo of an ordinary gay citizen in a public men’s room, and he complained to the legal authorities about it, I seriously doubt the complaint would have resulted in the investigation and prosecution I have faced.”
…is wrong. I mean, this is testable, right? Go do the same thing again to an “ordinary gay citizen in a public men’s room” and you just might have another expensive legal hassle from The Man.
Supervisor Scott Wiener is super-human. That’s why he’s so tall and why he only needs to sleep just three hours* every Earth-day, correct? He came to our planet to fight for the rights of millionaire property owners and members** of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, which is his right to do.
He should be able to do so without having to worry about camera-toting Mike Petrelis whenever nature calls.
Anyway, that’s not necessarily what people are saying online.
It’s just what most people are thinking.
*Or so I’ve been told, something like that. Prove me wrong!
**The members with unpopular restaurants especially. These crybabies want a free market except when they don’t. Someday we’ll get San Diego-style cleanliness letter grades posted in front of restaurants the way Chris Daly wanted. Someday.
Heh: Rincon Hill Blogger Jamie Whitaker Pwns RPD Director Phil Ginsburg Using Math – And He Shows His WorkMonday, May 13th, 2013
“One issue that I am hopeful someone will take up is the claim by the Recreation and Parks Department’s Director Phil Ginsburg that “We want as much open space as possible, but we also need to have a way to care for it.” That was his quote in reference to why the City’s Recreation and Parks Department is unwilling to accept the donation of the park built in front of the new Rincon Green Apartments at 333 Harrison Street. Read the article here (hopefully, the shared full article will appear: http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Creating-new-park-no-picnic-for-broke-city-4490422.php?t=27ec6d327d3f99889e
“This is a lie from Phil Ginsburg and it should infuriate everyone who lives in the Rincon neighborhood or nearby. Why do I say it is a lie?”
Hey, speaking of Gavin Newsom lackey Phil Ginsburg, a few years back he had a total boner for this nearby project at Justin Herman and yet NOBODY HAS EVER USED IT EXCEPT FOR OCCUPY SF FOR A FEW MONTHS.
Gavin Newsom lackey Phil Ginsburg must be aware, I mean he’s not stupid, that this bocce thing was/is a big fat waste, but he’s afraid to acknowledge this because then he’d have to get a job in the real world.
Amateur vs. MSM Blogger Showdown: The Tens vs The Nevius – Who Has a Decent Giants Fireworks Shot and Who Doesn’t?Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Up first is the effort from official Mayor Ed Lee lickspittle CW Nevius:

I’ll reserve comment else I’ll get Blocked from his Twitter feed (again. You know, for calling him an SFGov lickspittle last month, which he totally is.)
So that was the pro journalist.
Comes now, The Tens.
Oh that’s right, CW Nevius gets paid the same whether he does a half-assed job or not.
(And CW’s Conventional Wisdom writing is worse than his photography.)
(And switch cameras (or devices or whatever) and the The Tens would still take much better photos.)
A clear victor: The Tens.
Thx 4 playing…
Here’s the news from LiveSOMA:
“With the birth of my first son, a ridiculously overwhelming list of work-related projects, and the fact that I was recently priced out of the South of Market Neighborhood and forced to move to a part of the City where homeless people aren’t constantly pooping on my doorstep (GASP!), I have decided not to continue.
With that said, if anyone out there would like to dust off LiveSOMA, I will gladly help you take it over. I would really hate to see the site- and its years of development- go to waste. Just shoot me an email. If not, I will be pulling the plug after the new year.”
This is the scene in the Western Addition at 601 Broderick and Grove, the site of Gethsemane Baptist Church

The graffiti is new, you see it? It’s all, “THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD.”
Let’s take a closer look:
“The proposal is to convert the existing church into a single family residence.”
Well, that’s direct, huh, right there in black and white.
[RACIAL SUBTEXT MODE = ON] Uh, so the Western Addition is losing yet another African-American church so yet another millionaire white family can move in, except realtors* call it the North of Panhandle Area now because it doesn’t have the baggage associated with the Western A? That’s my guess, but tell if I’m way off on this one, Gentle Reader. [RACIAL SUBTEXT MODE = OFF]
Via Redfin.com: “601 Broderick is a charming old church … in
So that’s the sitch and the graffiti artist is doing all s/he can to draw attention.
On It Goes…

Well, today’s the start of San Francisco Critical Mass Week 2012.
Michael Krasny of KQED Forum will kick things off with a one-hour show on the history of Critical Mass.
And then festivities will end, of course, this Friday with the big 20th Anniversary Ride the evening of September 28th, 2012. (Not that you’d know it from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition website’s “Chain of Events” section, where all info about CM* is now censored.)
Suddenly surrounded by bicycles:
“It started with a bike ride in San Francisco on Sept. 25, 1992. About 50 people cycled in a pack along Market Street, hoping to earn some respect from drivers who sometimes ignored them or edged them off the road. They called it the “Commute Clot.” Today it’s known as Critical Mass, a movement that’s spread worldwide. Supporters say it promotes cycling and the rights of bicyclists. But critics say it is illegal, clogs traffic and antagonizes drivers. We talk about Critical Mass’ 20th anniversary, and its effects on the city.
Host: Michael Krasny
Chris Carlsson, co-founder of Critical Mass who was part of the first ride on Sept. 25, 1992, and has since participated in Critical Mass rides in Milan, Vancouver and Porto Alegre, Brazil
Hugh D’Andrade, founder of SFCriticalMass.org

*The SFBC raises money through fees but it also gets mucho dinero directly from SFGov. So that’s why it endorsed Ed Lee for Mayor even though SFBC’s members generally did not and still do not like Ed Lee. Similarly, Chrstina Olague, Mayor Ed Lee’s hand-picked recruit for District 5 Supervisor, gets endorsed over Julian Davis even though SFBC members actually favor JD. The SFBC is basically a quasi-government agency now, so it’s very afraid of seeming to say something negative about certain members of the City Family. It’s also afraid of hurting the chances of its officers someday getting jobs / health care directly with SFGov / SFMTA. Anyway, that’s why the SFBC is basically a SFGov kiss-ass these days. It will lobby San Francisco government, certainly, but that’s about as far as it wants to go. (Think about it – who would the SFMTA endorse for Mayor?)
MUNI Goes After the T-Shirts of a Harmless Local Blogger – The SFMTA Simply Can’t Manage Its AffairsWednesday, September 12th, 2012
So Ed Reiskin went to Harvard so he could be a do-boy for Willie Brown / Gavin Newsom / Ed Lee?
It looks that way.
Hey, why isn’t the head of MUNI an elected position? Mmmm…
Anyway, here’s the latest. Our SFMTA / MUNI / DPT, speaking through the City Attorney’s Office, doesn’t like being made fun of, so they’re going after individual Zazzle T-shirt makers.
In related news, remember this one, about the MUNI* Death Spiral? Look to see who, along with Joe Eskenazi, wrote that.
In closing, MUNI sucks, even harder than you think.
*Man, the stuff hit the fan at MUNI after that bit came out. There was a big meeting presided over by the guy who preceded Ed Reiskin. Actually, that guy later claimed to have not even read that bit. Anyway, this epic meeting that never happened is now enshrined in local lore. Ask your favorite City Family member about it sometime.
“Mission District resident and blogger Kevin Montgomery, Greg Dewar of the N-Judah Chronicles, and former SF Weekly Colunist, Patrick Connors launched stopedlee.com listing four reasons to vote for anyone but Ed Lee. None of them are connected to any candidate in the 2011 San Francisco mayoral race, the website notes.”
“We have to beat Ed Lee on his own medium. Using millions in donations from out-of-town millionaires and billionaires, he has gamed social media to spread the deceptive message that he represents San Francisco’s best interests.
Let’s get the message out there that Ed Lee the next chapter in a 16-year-old political machine that has notgotten it done for SF. Join us in making #EdLeeNot4Me a trending topic right before Tuesday’s election.
Tell your friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr why you are not voting for Lee. If you cannot think of what to say, copy and paste what we said—we won’t mind.
If you’ve already decided who you’re voting for, volunteer on election day for the campaign. And most importantly, VOTE!”
All right, get on it.
