You know, for every small business person who’s mad at Yelp, there’s another who complains not a whit. Little wonder owners of not-so-hot bidnesses want to suspend the First Amendment and ban Yelp…

“Officer Involved Shooting at the 600 blk of Funston Ave.
Posted Date: 10/3/2011
On October 3, 2011 at approximately 7:18 a.m., San Francisco Police responded to a call of a stabbing at the 600 block of Funston Ave. Officers and paramedics arrived on the scene and discovered a 78 year old Chinese male victim in front of the residence bleeding profusely. The victim suffered a stab wound to his hand and forearm.
Officers and paramedics immediately rendered medical aid in attempt to control the bleeding. The officers continued up the stairway where they found a 78 year old Chinese female victim with what the officers believed to be life threatening stab wounds to the body. As officers were trying to pull the victim to safety and get medical treatment for the female victim, they were confronted by a 44 year old Chinese male suspect.
The suspect had two knives as he advanced towards the officers. One officer used an Extended Range Impact Weapon (ERIW) in an effort to subdue the suspect. The ERIW proved to be ineffective. A cover officer discharged his firearm on the advancing suspect and stopped the deadly threat. Officers continued to search the house for additional suspects and victims and found a 50 year old Chinese female hiding in the back of the house inside a locked bedroom, she was uninjured.
All victims and suspect are related. The suspect was the son of both 78 year old victims, and the uninjured female found by officers at the scene, was the sister of the suspect.
At approximately, 9:39 a.m. the suspect was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 78 year old female victim was also pronounced dead a few minutes later at the hospital at 9:41 a.m
This is an active ongoing police investigation by the San Francisco Police Department’s Homicide Detail, Internal Affairs Division, District Attorney’s Office, and the Office of Citizens Complaints.
There will be a community meeting pertaining to the officer involved shooting tomorrow, October 4, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. Location will be at the Richmond Recreational Center at 251 18th Ave between Clement and California.”
Officer-Involved shooting: A Bloody Scene in Front of 636 Funston Avenue, in the Normally-Quiet Richmond DistrictMonday, October 3rd, 2011
Somebody was dragging somebody or something, as you can see:

Is Chief Suhr going to call for a community meeting with District One Supervisor Eric Mar? (Apparently, it’s his policy* to do that kind of thing after each SFPD officer-involved shooting, whether it’s needed or not.)
*You know who could use that policy? The BART Police, that’s who.**

Visit Your Golden Gate Park Rose Garden at Funston and Fulton, Why Not? It’s In Full Bloom These DaysMonday, July 18th, 2011
But San Francisco’s official flower doesn’t really get going until August so roses will have to do until then.
Can you see the photographer here, with the Twinflash hanging off the lens and a water spray bottle hanging off the belt? That’s how some of them do it:

Oh, and here’s my effort, on a dreaded sunny in the West Bay, showing people milling about the plots:
All right, see you there!
This is what it looks like.
Here’s the mise-en-scene,near Fulton at Park Presidio:

And here are the three beds that got hacked beyond recognition:
These are some pretty hefty branches – too big for hand shears? I don’t know. I imagine a hard-to-conceal lopper might have been used. The left thumb from my man hands is beneath the cut area:
Who knows what might have been the trigger (White Delight?) that set off The Lopper?
(Also noteworthy down at Our Rose Garden is this Notice of Pesticide Application. Uh, I’d like a Big Mac, no, make that a fish filet, and a side of fries, no make that a baked potato, and a Dr. Pepper, no make that a choco shake. Got that?)
Anywaym keep it up and you’ll get caught, Lopper.
Plus new road signs too, probably they’ll be more legible or something. But that’s a small thing compared with the installation of new signals.

Maybe fewer people will die on the mean streets of the Richmond District after we get all this new equipment. (How many peds got mowed over by cars in the Richmond District last year? More than you might think.)
Anyway, the new lights can’t hoit.
1. a dedicated pedestrian signal (with a countdown timer thrown in as a bonus), like this one on Ortega : or
2. evidence of recent work indicating that a pedestrian signal is a coming soon, like this one on Santiago.

Don’t get out much to this part of the Westside Fog Belt, so this is the first I’ve seen of pedestrian signals at some intersections of 19th Avenue, aka State Highway One.
Of course, this improvement comes a little late for some…
Look for them, tirelessly counting down 24/7, on Park Presidio and the Sunset District part of 19th Avenue.
Hurray, I suppose.
This Porsche Cayenne, a straight-out-of-Leipzig, “five-seat, mid-size luxury sport utility vehicle,” might seem a little odd as the choice for an Ace Hardware company car, but there you go. If only it were a $125k Turbo S model…
