San Francisico Police Captain Proposes Mandatory Hand-Stamping to Track Nightclub Goers.

Friday, June 13th, 2008

It’s been printed in the San Francisco Examiner, (so it must be true):

Captain James Dudley of Central Station in North Beach plans to ask the San Francisco Entertainment Commission to consider making mandatory handstamps specific to a bar or club so police can more easily make connections between specific locations and drunken behavior.

According to the Cap’n, “it would be helpful to be able to track people.”

Will this idea pass constitutional muster? Is it justified? Feel free to read the Captain’s weekly newsletters to see what he’s dealing with  on a nightly basis in the world-famous North Beach area.

Be sure you don’t spend too much time showing off all your temporary tracking stamps to your friends on the street, as loitering too long in front of a club will soon get you into hot water as well.

Stay safe and have fun!
