It Takes a Village (of SFPD Cops) to Arrest a Union Square Felon During Christmastime

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Man, the cops are all over the place in and around Union Square these days, the better to protect the all-important holiday shopper.

So that means SFPD vehicles parked all over, as a show of force for newly-arrived felons, including your Mobile Command Centers One, Two, and/or Three, and beat cops just standing around the corner of Fifth and Market answering tourists’ requests about which direction is the Metreon, that kind of thing.

And if you’re a drug dealer, the SFPD will literally tell you to conduct your business a few blocks up Market near Turk, you know, in the Twitterloin containment / enterprise zone, where you belong.

A half-dozen cops, one felon, Market Street betwixt Fifth and Sixth:

Here it is, Mobile Command One, guarding a Bank of America branch at 49 Market betwixt OccupySF’s former Justin Herman Plaza location and OccupySF’s former annex location at 101 Market in front of our Federal Reserve Building:

This thing is big, just like Mobile Command Two, which, once again, is parked up Market these days in Union Square, you know, to catch the seasonal shoplifters.

However, Mobile Command Three is less impressive – it gets spray painted by taggers on Sixth Street sometimes, no respect at all.

Now you better know your SFPD Mobile Commands.
