How the Mellow SFPD Handles Things When All You Want To Do on Election Day is Sit at a MUNI Stop and Drink Beer

Friday, November 7th, 2014

You’d make it simpler for the fuzz if you’d transfer your booze to a water bottle or something. Simply putting your 40 in a paper bag or, in this case, black fabric(?), doesn’t cut it.

So they’ll pour your brew out right in front of you. And then quickly move on to the friction of the day, no muss, no fuss.

How the San Francisco Giants are LYING When They Say “Ticket Scalping is Illegal” in San Francisco

Friday, October 24th, 2014

C’mon focus, look at the sign, as seen this morning by Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly and KRON-TV

Now it could be that this is what the San Francisco Giants organization wishes Police Code Section 869 would say, but this aint what it says.

Comes now SF Weekly writer Joe Eskenazi:

“…according to the police code cited on the sign (Good Ol’ No. 869) scalping is not strictly illegal: This is a code that prohibits folks from selling wares on the street without a peddlers’ permit. This means folks who sell their tickets online or out of their homes or offices are not violating the law. And your humble narrator was unable to find anything within the police code stating that people who buy wares from unlicensed peddlers are subject to arrest…”

So, Giants, why don’t you take these signs down, or change them?

Incident at Flagship Nordstrom – Using a Nightstick for Leverage – Everyday Life for the SFPD in the Twitterloin

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

(You know, I hope that Twitter will pay its taxes someday. Kind of a Better Late Than Never kind of thing, just cut a check for about a hundred million and make it out to the SF General Fund.)

I don’t know what was going on here, but it looked intense

The SFPD vs. the Drug Dealers of the Alvord Lake Bridge – A Game of Cat and Mouse – Running Across Kezar Drive

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Does the SFPD drive its big Ford Crown Victorias ‘neath the first reinforced concrete bridge built in America just to chat with area drug dealers? Yes, yes it does. Officers simply drive past the world’s smallest lake (sadly just two-star rated) and then under Kezar Drive.

And then they hang a left to do a little 2WD off-roading.

Oh, what’s this, lazy drug dealers who don’t know enough to run away? In this case yes. But in other cases, more motivated dealers hoof it up the hill and across three lanes of traffic on Kezar Drive.

On it Goes…

What It Looks Like When DreamForce Conventioneers Report Street Crime to the SFPD – A Few Questions

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

This pair here near 4th and Mission were victimized by, you guessed it, ladies, a team of mens.

Of course I had already guessed that they were DreamForcers but the officer directly asked them. So hey, how many Dreamforcers became crime victims this year? Does the SFPD keep records?

Just asking.

Uh, What’s This – A Mini-Documentary About the SFPD Called “Cops Put Gang Members to Work” in the Mission?

[UPDATE: The video has gone private, sorry. It used to be here.]

Yes, yes it is.

As reported earlier this year by Tim Redmond and Mike Aldax

John Cathey and David Sands are plainclothes anti-gang SFPD officers in the Mission District. This is their story in seven minutes:

“Check out the latest from The I Files- a story about two cops in San Francisco who are taking an unorthodox approach to curbing gang violence.”
