Here’s 20 minutes of audio from @ScannerSays.
(“10-30” means that the car is suspected stolen.)
Here’s another story from the Central Market area:
“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.”

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.
The SFPD has just fleshed out this story of a trip to Japantown gone wrong.
Turns out the guy trying to fence(?) the booty is less than 18 years old.
Anyway, all the deets:
“SFPD Arrest Suspect by way of Smartphone GPS Technology
Posted Date: 9/30/2011
San Francisco Police Officers at Northern Station arrested a suspect in connection with a robbery by way of GPS technology.
The suspect who cannot be identified due to the fact he is a juvenile, was taken into custody on September 29, 2011 and charged for possession of stolen property.
In this incident, the victim was walking home from work on the 1600 block of Post St. at 11:00 p.m. when she was suddenly shocked in the neck by a stun gun. The suspect then stole her belongings, which included a Smartphone. Shortly after, a group of good Samaritans came to the victim’s aid and she was able to call the police.
Responding officers arrived on scene and asked the victim if she subscribed to a GPS tracking device on her Smartphone. The victim stated, “Yes”.
A tracking device is a service that allows subscribers to track their Smartphone when their device is either stolen or lost. Using GPS technology, the officers were able to track the Victim’s stolen Smartphone to the area of 7th St and Market.
Officers responded to the area and were able to track down the Smartphone through its tracking device software.
The officers were able to detain the suspect who had the Smartphone in his possession. The suspect was placed under arrest for possession of stolen property.”
Well, I guess this is a happy ending…

You ever just drive around the Western Addition with your buds in a white minivan and then rob people all night long?
