“Police Without Guns” – Community Service Officers Come to the Bay Area

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Who’s behind the wheel of this Ford Crown Victoria “police car” from the northern Bay Area? Well, not a police officer, but a Community Service Officer (CSO). What’s that?

CSO’s provides technical police services in crime prevention, crime investigation, and crime response that do not require full police powers. CSOs typically are paid significantly less than sworn officers, allowing departments to field more people for the same amount of money.

Click to expand:

So, forget the police academy and all that pesky firearms training – you can become a CSO right out of high school (pretty much) in a town like Fremont.

Are CSO’s coming soon to the heart of the Bay Area? Only Time Will Tell.

Diggler Electric Scooters Come to San Francisco

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Petaluma-based Diggler, the original mountain scooter company, is selling more and more of its products to San Franciscans. Check out this sweet electric ride seen at Crissy Field.


And check the video. Maybe a little more practical than an E-Glide electric skateboard, anyway.

So when you hear the name Diggler, don’t think about Dirk Diggler (or Brock Landers), think about scooters.

Vandalism! The “Ecotage” Movement Now is Going After the Toyota Prius in NorCal?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

It seems the ecotage movement is now going after the Toyota Prius hybird in Northern California. No longer satisifed with attacking gasoline-powered SUV’s and pickups [yes Silverado pickups, sometimes Wiki is wrong], eco-griefers must now be turning their sights to the greenhouse-polluting Prius.

Why else would folks be stalking these popular hybrid cars? The people behind these attacks probably drive 100% electric cars like the Tesla Roadster.

Be on the lookout for vandals in all-electric cars or golf carts. They could be coming after your hybrid.



Sometimes, when a mob gets going after one thing, it turns and attacks another thing. Funny how that works.

“In America, they came first for the SUV’s, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an SUV owner;
And then they came for the pickups, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a pickup owner;
And then . . . they came for my Prius . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”
