Photographic Evidence of Official San Francisco Corruption: Free Parking for SFGov Employees Attending Giants Games

Monday, April 8th, 2013

I didn’t take these photos, but I’ll tell you, I’ve seen a lot of corruption regarding free parking for SFGov employees in the SoMA area, so I believe them.

Here’s a photo essay with captions from Jim, who went on a walkabout yesterday.

Take a look:

“There are the People who pay up front to park in a lot, $25-$70. There are the people who feed meters but many of those wind up paying $72 to the City long after the last pitch. And there are those who play the system and possibly cheat and pay nothing for parking in a “red zone” with the help from “winking and nodding” SFMTA Parking Control Officers.

All these photos were taken within a 50 foot circle near 2nd & Townsend at 2:15 P.M. on Sunday April 7, 2013 during the Giants/St. Louis Baseball game.

1) Number 1 shows what the average slug must pay for parking for the Giant’s game at 2 in the afternoon, i.e. $70.

,

2) Number 2 shows a Handicapped placard vehicle getting free Giants game parking in the “red zone” of the SFFD at Second & Townsend. Handicapped placard holders may not park in “red zones.”

3) What appears to be several private vehicles of S.F. firefighters parked in the “red zone” claiming to be working by their Official Papers on the Dash. Is it mere code for “don’t ticket a fellow City employee?”

4) Several motorcycles getting ticketed (TC27, 219) for expired meters by the PCO who just drove by the “red zones” without seeing cause to stop.

5) Photo of SFFD Headquarters at 9:30 A.M., Sunday April 7, 2013 in case you think a lot of people work there on a Sunday.

 

Uh Oh, Bad News for “Peak Oil” Fans – American Production of Crude Oil has been Going Up Lately

Friday, April 27th, 2012

I don’t know, if I were all set on the idea that American oil production peaked in 1970, I’d be getting a little worried about now.

See?

Who knows what the future will bring?

 

The Best Places to Get Drugs Always Seem to be in “Drug Free Zones”

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Why’s that?

You’d think a “drug free” area would be bereft of scoring opportunities, but that doesn’t appear to be the case around Hippy Hill in the Haight Ashbury section of San Francisco.
