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.”

Much cheaper than a proper repair, so it’s easier to fix the next time somebody wants into your car:

Is This UBER Filming an S-Class Mercedes-Benz Driving About Frisco’s Financh?

Friday, December 9th, 2016

And when I say UBER, I mean some people hired by UBER for some marketing effort.

And when I say filming, I mean videoing, or recording, or whathaveyou, as it’s prolly a digital camera what Bro was pointing out of the back of the black SUV, as seen on California in the 94104.

Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Uber Has Apparently Ordered $10 Billion Worth of Mercedes S-Class Sedans. That’s a lot of expensive luxury cars for an app dedicated to undercutting local taxi prices.

Perhaps there’s a connection here, IDK.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me 100,000 self-driving Mercedes Benzes?

I suppose this is better than nothing, but you prolly oughta have a garage afore you go all-electric, and many people don’t have garages in the bay area, of course. Anyway, this is better than nothing I suppose…

The Shrouded Trees of Masonic – A Death Row for Flora – Imprisoned in Orange

I think these trees will be the first to go as a part of the Masonic Something Something Project:

Not sure what the orange is for. Pretty sure these trees are on the chipper list, cause hundreds of them are.

Eventually, Frisco will plant more…

Sprig Delivery vs. the SFMTA – How Hard is It to Treat Market Street as a Place Where You Can Park a Car for 5 Minutes?

Friday, October 14th, 2016

I’ll tell you, I don’t have the balls to just park a ride on Market and then sass the SFMTA mounted sergeant(?) PCO’s what show up, but somebody at Sprig does, apparently. And no ticket was issued? Man, that’s lucky. (Delivering anything anywhere near the Financh is HARD, certainly.)

Can’t recall seeing two SFMTA employees on bikes at the same time, in all my years. You know, as Obama said at a fundraiser up in Pac Heights about rural Pennsylvanians who “cling” to their guns, our SFMTA clings to its cars and free parking spaces, oh well. Every SFGov agency is like this – they’ll agree in principal to get rid of / reduce their rides, but then when it comes time to actually do that, they’ll be all, “Well don’t count this car. It’s essential. Take away cars from Some Other Agency.” Poor poor SFGov, so addicted to cars it is…

Just What Frisco Needs: More BMW Owners from Back East

I guess moving to the 415 is still a thing, so you fly on over from New Yawk or Joisey and then have your Beemer loaded up in a car carrier for delivery direct to your new stoop in the Western Addition:
