If I were a house burglar, I sure wouldn’t want to see my face plastered on every light pole in my ‘hood…
It would make me nervous…
Has it been ten years since Ninja Rocks have been enshrined in our California Criminal Code? Yes!
Celebrate by breaking into cars this year, as people are already doing on McAllister Street right near City Hall.
But don’t use a hammer to get car booty. Hammers are heavy.
Use ninja rocks to break windows instead. (They’re super light so they’re easy to carry around.)

This is how it goes when you’re a little less than cooperative and you’re arrested for burglary on Duboce near Steiner in San Francisco. You’ll have SFPD ten cops sitting around waiting for the paddy wagon.
When the van arrives you’ll get picked up by four of them and get carried away horizontally and face down.

That’s the difference between an arrest and a Terry Stop, which one officer can do all by his lonesome.
And oh yes, feel free to use the term mother fucker as a noun of direct address as you get spirited away.
It’s your right as an arrestee, after all.
What items tempt you the most when you scan parked cars for Objects in Plain View – would it be a laptop computer, an iPod, maybe a backpack? Well, be careful, cause when the SFPD baits cars for sting operations in Golden Gate Park, they sometimes use all three. (It’s almost like entrapment, or something. So tempting these parcels are, next thing you know, it’s smashy smashy!)
From the Richmond District Blog comes a sneak peek of Richmond Station Police Captain Richard Corriea‘s next weekly update for the Richmond District Police Community Police Forum. Read an entire entry below.
Yes, it’s MLK near the Friend Gate of Strybing Arboretum. Perhaps the cars huddle together for safety?
“On July 25, 2009 Richmond [District] officers working in plain clothes staked out a car at Middle Drive and Bowling Green Drive in Golden Gate Park. There were several items of value in the car, including, a backpack, computer and an IPOD. The officers knew from experience that an auto burglar would find the car an appealing target. Indeed, several hours into the stakeout an individual burglarized the car, and he was immediately arrested. A subsequent search of the suspect turned up evidence from a theft committed nearby earlier in the day and narcotics. The suspect, who has been arrested forty-nine times, including thirty-one times for felonies, was booked for burglary, possession of stolen property, theft and a narcotics violation. This individual is likely responsible for several auto burglaries daily.”
How many car windows do you have to break to get a rap sheet this long – hundreds, thousands?
