SFPD Seek Public’s Assistance in Attempted Homicide Investigation
Posted Date: 11/25/2011

On November 24, 2011 at 2:45 AM, an attempted homicide occurred on the corner of 9th Ave/Geary. Prior to the incident the victim and suspect got into a physical altercation inside of a restaurant on the corner of 11th Ave/Geary in San Francisco. Both victim and suspect were eventually separated and left the restaurant. The victim then walked to a gas station located on 9th Ave/Geary. The suspect described as a mixed race or Latin male, 18-24 years old, with short black hair and a manicured beard was then seen getting into the pictured vehicle listed below and drove off.

The suspect then drove his vehicle, described as a black Mazda CX type SUV with possible front end damage, and twelve spoke sports rims into the gas station on 9th/Geary and intentionally struck the victim. The suspect fled the scene. Witnesses to the fight took photos of the suspect at the time of the fight. The victim received life threatening injuries due to being struck by the suspect vehicle.

San Francisco Police Criminal Investigations Unit is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in this attempted homicide. Witnesses or persons with information are asked to call the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or “Text-a-Tip” at TIP411 from their cell phones. Please include “SFPD’ in the beginning of the text message.”

So here’s your suspect:

And the Mazda vehicle looks like this:

Here’s another stab at it:

And here’s the 411 on the infamous J in the B at 11th Avenue:

This IS the legendary Jack-n-the-Box of SF! That’s right.. open 24 hours baby.. and with PARKING. Now if the SFPD were smart, they’d put a squad car here at midnight..because only after you’ve finished drinking your 5th pint does a couple of Jumbo Jack with extra mayo and with the burger drowned in ketchup actually sound tasty.  

I remember when I used to come here late at night. It’s like a rainbow coalition meeting. You have your clubbers, pub crawlers, homeless and 3rd shifters getting their Jack on. Since the inside is small we were all elbow to elbow forced into a temporary bonding moment that even would make Martin Luther King smile as he watched his dream come true.

But that dream was crushed as they have started to lock their doors after 10pm. That’s right folks.. you are now limited to ordering through a walk-thru. If you haven’t seen the walk-thru it’s a contraption that relies on “The Cube” where you put your money through.”

Crazy Hand Signals: Tell Other Motorcycle Riders a Speed Trap is Behind You by Tapping Your Head

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

See how that works? You want to warn your fellow riders that there are cops handing out speeding tickets on Highway 37 (aka Sears Point Road) up there in the Great White North, so all you have to do is to tap your head in an exaggerated fashion when you see others going the opposite way.

Anyway, that’s one of the codes you can transmit when you’re a cowboy, on a steel horse you ride.

San Francisco Pedestrians are the Worst Pedestrians in the World: “Stay Behind Yellow Line, Use X-Walk to Cross Street”

Monday, July 25th, 2011

I have no idea what happened in this incident here,* involving a serious head injury and a MUNI bus on Market Street, but check out Famous Akit‘s recent first-hand experiences of people who don’t know enough to stay behind the yellow line right here.

Da Law is the Da Law, both above and below ground, right?

Here’s how it works, peds, and this applies the world over, you need to stay behind the yellow line and leave that airspace free for people who are driving buses and taxis and cars and motorcycles and bicycles, and, I don’t know, skateboards and Segways.

Leave us review:

“Use X-Walk to Cross Street, Stay Behind Yellow Line, Use X-Walk to Cross Street, Stay Behind Yellow Line…”

Click to expand

If you spend any time at all driving any kind of vehicle up and down Market Steet, you’ll know that, for some reason, San Francisco pedestrians feel:

1. It’s their innate right to jaywalk 24/7/365; and

2. There’s no reason for them to actually look for oncoming traffic before jaywalking because of #1 (see above), their innate right to jaywalk 24/7/365

The biggest threat to any pedestrian is the pedestrian him or herself, obviously.

And that goes double for the 415, home of the Worst Pedestrians in the World.

*I’m thinking that the initial reports of this tragedy had more certainty over what occurred. The ped in this case might be 100% not at fault.

Brace Yourselves: Hooded Oriole Season is Almost Here – Where Will YOU Spot These Very Yellow Birds?

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

[UPDATE: Comment below or on this thread from a year ago…]

Oh, they’re making their way here right now, these yellow-orange Hooded Orioles.

Look for them in Dolores Park and the Presidio and Golden Gate Park and all over, basically.
