A Sad Tale From the “New” Mid-Market: “Assaulted for my Cannondale – $600 (Tenderloin)” – Attack from Six on Sixth

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Here’s another story from the Central Market area:

SF bay area craigslist > san francisco > for sale / wanted > bicycles – by owner

Yesterday afternoon I was assaulted by 5-6 young men on Sixth and Natoma in the Tenderloin. In broad daylight they surrounded me, tried and failed to grab my wallet, phone and backpack but made off with my 1999 green Cannondale road bike. I’ve attached a picture of a similar bike though mine had traditional silver rims and a black Terry saddle. If you see this bike for sale on craigslist or anywhere around San Francisco/Oakland please call the police immediately. They are aware of this group and, frankly, are fed up with this bullshit. 

If you were involved in the violent, cowardly mugging on Monday August 20th you have not gained much. I am in good health and will pursue this until justice is served. These actions bring digrace on your families, community, and the city of San Francisco. My only regret is that I didn’t land another kick when the SIX of you had me pinned in the street.”

Reaction here.

On a related note, here’s how you get your stuff back from the corrupt Twitterloin, if you’re willing to deal with fences.

Oh, and thanks so much for moving in to the hood, Twitter. Let us know if you want anything else from the City and County, you know, like another shuttle bus service to CalTrain, you know, to supplement the two you already have. Oh, and thanks for not paying the 2004 Gavin Newsom tax – that was very clever of you. Oh and thanks for the $2,000,000 Jane Kim slush fund you’re paying for – the non-existent WiFi, you know, part of what you promised, you know, instead of paying your taxes, well, I’m sure it would have worked perfectly.

If You Need a Ukulele, the Fillmore Street Uke Man Has You Covered – Any Color You Want

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

And just try to guess what’s in his huge backpack? That’s right, a brace of ever more ukulele and, for all I know, a Board of Equalization Seller’s Permit, who knows?

Look for him making his rounds in the Upper Fillmore. He’s not shy at all:

Buy one and then you’ll be able to play like this guy. (Start at 2:30 if you want – 8.5 million YouTube viewers can’t be wrong…)
