The Face of Bicycle Theft in Civic Center – What Happens When You Show the SFPD an Open-Air Chop Shop

Friday, October 25th, 2013

[UPDATE: SFPD Anti Bike Theft @SFPDBikeTheft reminds us all that a Tweet in their direction can be helpful when you see scenes such as this.

“Crimes In Progress Call 911. Report a Chop Shop call (415) 553-0123. Anti Bike Theft Information From the SFPD”]

Here it is, from Bob Bobster:

“I spotted this charming couple at work across the street from the Civic Auditorium today at about 4:30pm. at the corner of Hayes and Larkin. They had quite an assortment of tires, bike frames, and parts on display. A woman who works nearby came out of the building, and when she saw me watching told me she had already called the cops. What was their response, I asked? Well, the cops said they’d send somebody over, but unless you can prove the stuff is stolen it’s hard to do much. I went to the library and came out 10 minutes later – nothing had changed. No cops in sight. I walked around the corner to Market and saw three motorcycle cops ticketing drivers. I told one of the cops about this and he said he would call it in to the homeless squad (I’m paraphrasing here).”


Thx for the report, Bobster!

CRASH! Ginger Skaterboy Attacks MUNI Bus Stop Near City Hall – Broken Glass Everywhere – How #19 Polk Failed

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Here he is, in front of the Asian Art Museum.

Art student? I’m thinking art student with $19 headphones. Anyway…

…he’s the one who took out a huge panel of glass at the formerly famous* bus stop at McAllister and Larkin last week. There’s his weapon and there’s some of the glass he broke.

A modern-day warrior/Mean mean stride/ Today’s Tom Sawyer/ Mean mean pride:

Then, as twenty-odd people were staring at him, he yelled, “You should have stopped, Bitch!”

Indeed, a #19 Polk had just passed by him and a small crowd of fellow MUNI “passengers.”

Then, Dude sauntered up Polk, thusly:

How much does it cost Clear Channel / us to fix a glass panel at a MUNI bus stop? I know not.

$1000? $10,000?

On It Goes…

Exit the warrior, 
Today’s Tom Sawyer, 
He gets high on you, 
And the energy you trade, 
He gets right on to the friction of the day.

*Man-child Gavin Newsom had a press conference at the old bus stop at this location, back when urban farming was hot in the late-aughts. As seen from the CAAG’s Office, 355 McAllister:
