Calling BS on “Coastal Motor Escorts” – Motorcycle Security Guards with Seven Pointed Star Emblems to Look Like the SFPD?Tuesday, January 14th, 2014
Boy oh boy, do you think that this funeral escort motorcycle driver in the Western Addition has taken steps to appear to be an active-duty peace officer with the SFPD or CHP? Well, I do.

I’m calling bullshit on the seven-pointed star up front and the squares designed to look like blue lights on the rear. I’ll tell you, there was this whole big deal about officers people in the San Francisco Patrol Special Police wearing seven-pointed stars when really they should all be wearing six-pointers. And blue lights? That should reserved for the real popo, non?
“8. Oliveira, Michael 669 Bridgewater Circle, Danville 94526 Funeral Procession Escort OK Permit; dba “Coastal Motor Escorts, LLC.” Permit #: 139056 District: U ID: 4971″
…but that doesn’t mean you have the right to impersonate police, right?
Now let’s learn a bit about this outfit from the San Jose Mercury News:
“QUESTION: Mr. Roadshow, the other day I had a scary encounter with a gun-toting security guard on a motorcycle while traveling on Interstate 880 in San Leandro. I was traveling with the flow of traffic when a white BMW motorcycle with emergency-type lights with “Coastal Motor Escorts” pulled next to my vehicle and began honking his horn and shaking his fist at me. I looked down and noticed my speedometer showed I was going 67 mph. I continued to drive and the motorcycle security guard pulled behind my vehicle and began flashing his high-beam lights at me. I was not sure if I should pull over or continue. There was no funeral procession or other activity and this guy was traveling alone.”
Read on for more deets of this encounter, be my guest.
And this isn’t just in Frisco – read on about what happens elsewhere.
So, I know all the reasons why motorized security guards would like to be perceived as being currently-employed peace officers, but I don’t agree with what Coastal Motor Escorts is doing in San Francisco.
I cry foul.
OMG, It’s Scary Video of a Highline Over San Francisco – How Would You Like to Tightrope Walk Near the Golden Gate?Tuesday, January 7th, 2014
Oh man, RPD General Manager Phil Ginsburg is NOT going to like seeing this. ‘Cause the daredevil seen below didn’t take a time-out to thank lawyer Phil Ginsburg for being appointed as RPD general manager.
Now, there’s a safety line, but this video is scary nevertheless.
As seen near Land’s End, near the Golden Gate Bridge:
This Billboard Above the Masonic Starbucks Kicks Off Roe v. Wade Month in SF – Abortion Marches ComingMonday, December 23rd, 2013
I can’t recall the last time I saw a pro-life billboard in San Francisco. Maybe never?
Here it is, on Masonic near Fulton – it’s all “My Doc Says, ‘I Could Smile Before I Was Born – 12 Weeks from Conception’”

Sometimes the counter-protest is a bigger deal, other times locals purposefully ignore WFLWC. I don’t know how it’s going to be in 2014…
Bacon Bacon NIMBYs Make Saturday Night Live: Client(s) of Ryan Patterson Now a National LaughingstockSunday, May 19th, 2013
Well this wacky story just went national today on Saturday Night Live – here’s Weekend Update co-host Amy Poehler, via Brock Keeling of SFist:
Perhaps not that funny but at least now more people are mocking attorney Ryan Patterson and his unknown client(s).
At least now there’s an upside to this flagrant NIMBYism.
So feel free to add this incident…
…to the time this Kramer-esque sign hung off the back of nearby 1965 Page…
…and, for that matter, Kramer’s famous run in:
