When they were building this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a tall apartment building…

The SFPD’s Redistricting Proposal Looks Great – Why Should SFGov Care What Rich Berkeley Homeowner Randy Shaw Thinks?Wednesday, January 7th, 2015
Let’s hear first from Park Station’s Captain Vaswani:
And here’s the map, or at least the part of it that reflects the changes. Red lines are existing and blue lines are the future. Richmond Station loses its kink on its eastern border. Northern Station gets more of the area directly to its east. Central and the Tenderloin southern borders move south to capture all of the northern part of Market Street as Southern station moves south to Mission Bay. And let’s see, the Tenderloin (nee Tenderloin Task Force) becomes more of a full-fledged station and what else, oh, no more splitting streets down the middle – stations will generally get a whole street instead of just the odd or even side of a border street:
Does this look crazy to you? It doesn’t look crazy to me.
So unless you think that the SFPD’s priorities are totally upside-down, you say, OK cops, have it your way.
Comes now Randy Shaw (speaking through his favorite female sock-puppet, Karin Drucker, who just moved to town (I think – let’s hope so) from Ohio (I think):
See that? The new border plan hasn’t even been implemented yet, and yet it’s already failing?
Now IRL, the “Uptown Tenderloin” doesn’t exist. And it never did. And having somebody besides Randy Shaw forward all the notions forwarded by that article doesn’t really help things, does it?
Perhaps journalist Karin Drucker is too close to the story?
It sure looks that way…
Let me tell you first about Los Angeles, about how they don’t want cars with “master” and “slave” brake cylinders, about how they don’t want PCs with master and slave hard drives:
Based on the cultural diversity and sensitivity of Los Angeles County, this is not an acceptable identification label,” Joe Sandoval, division manager of purchasing and contract services, said in a memo sent to County vendors
That’s your baseline.
Comes now CalTrain with a logo for the CRUSADER FENCE company, complete with a red cross:
(Check for yourself on the Google Maps: 341 Townsend Street, SF, CA ought to do it.)
So, the fence is so good, it can keep out even the Crusaders?
Does that make sense?
I don’t get it.
Who Has the Temerity to Charge Tourists $1.20 MORE Per Gallon Than the Nearby Shell Station? BRIDGEWAY GAS, Sausalito, CAFriday, November 7th, 2014
$4.69 per gallon – Bridgeway Gas. Sausalito, CA 94965:
$3.49 per gallon – Bridgeway Shell, Sausalito, CA 94965, same day:
The Yelpers are NOT IMPRESSED with BRIDGEWAY GAS.
I beg of you, tourists, watch yourselves. Be on guard. This place is full of vultures. Vultures everywhere. Everywhere!
How the Mellow SFPD Handles Things When All You Want To Do on Election Day is Sit at a MUNI Stop and Drink BeerFriday, November 7th, 2014
You’d make it simpler for the fuzz if you’d transfer your booze to a water bottle or something. Simply putting your 40 in a paper bag or, in this case, black fabric(?), doesn’t cut it.
So they’ll pour your brew out right in front of you. And then quickly move on to the friction of the day, no muss, no fuss.
“Panhandle Police Altercation” – The Difference Between Being Found “Not Guilty” Vs. Being “Found Innocent”Thursday, November 6th, 2014
Well, here it is.
The problem with this Hoodline headline is that Dude wasn’t “found innocent.” IRL, the jury ruled that he is not guilty.
In other words:
“Juries never find defendants innocent. They cannot. Not only is it not their job, it is not within their power. They can only find them ‘not guilty.'”
Am I being too picky here?
Shocking: The Term “New Market” Has Become Normalized Already – Here’s “NEMA” Right Next to SOMA No Big DealTuesday, November 4th, 2014
I give up, NEMA is here to stay. All it took was one little weather station high (nine stories) above Mid Market:
How should the NEMA people celebrate this climate-related milestone? What would they say?
WEATHER, NOT PLEATHER
FORECASTS, NOT WHORECASTS
CLIMATE SAVVY, NOT SHABBY
You get the idea. (Like similarly, I could almost write one of Frank Chu’s signs after seeing so many over the years.)
Do you know that at least two people moved into the NeMA for less than $2k per month? (No, not the Below Market Rent people-some of those are paying high thtee figs, I’m srsly.) Granted, these were studios on low floors, but still, people pay more than that now for bedbug-infested cribs across the street and a bit to the northeast in the actual Tenderloin.
So Nema tenants, brace, brace, brace – your massive rent increase is coming, soon, FYI.

Streetfighter 94117: New SFPD Park Station Captain Raj Vaswani Takes Down a Shoplifter at the Lucky, You Know, PersonallyThursday, October 23rd, 2014
That is, if I’m reading this right:
“Probation Violation – Fulton/Masonic – 10/02/2014 4:25PM
Captain of Park Station who was on routine patrol is approached by a loss prevention agent. The agent states a theft had just occurred at Lucky’s supermarket and the suspect was still in sight. Captain observed the subject walking away and immediately ordered the thief to stop, which the thief was reluctant to do. The Captain was able to catch up to the thief and attempt to take him into custody. The thief would not go down without a fight. After a brief struggle, the Captain was able to overpower the thief and take him into custody. The thief was on felony probation for the transportation of drugs.”

Oh No, SFPD Chief Greg Suhr Bans Flair! – SF Weekly Covers “Sticker Purge” – Here’s What Excessive Flair Looks LikeWednesday, October 8th, 2014
Well, here you go:
“A goodly number of sports team decals, Grateful Dead imagery, shamrocks, college mascots, skateboard brand insignias, and family crests have since been disposed of.”
All right, now let’s see the kind of thing that wouldn’t survive a flair audit.

The above bit of flair could help to conveniently ID different mags, I suppose.
Now, check this out. What do you see?
Can SFPD officers wear hoop earrings while OTJ?
The fashion police say NO:
“5. JEWELRY AND ORNAMENTS (also see DGO 11.08, Grooming Standards). On-duty officers shall not wear jewelry or personal ornaments that are visible except:
a. A wristwatch.
b. A total of 2 rings that are consistent with officer safety. An engagement and wedding ring set will be considered as one ring.
c. A conservative tie bar or tie tack.
d. Female officers may, in addition, wear the following:
1. Hair clips or pins that match the color of the hair.
2. One ear post in each ear. The post must lie flush with the ear and be plain metal, gold or silver colored. The face of the post is not to have a diameter of more than three-eighths (3/8) inch. Nothing shall hang from the post.”
Hey look, the SFFD takes a different approach: Flair has been institutionalized.
This was on a ladder truck parked on Fulton in in front of the former “Gabin” prostitution house in the NoPA Western Addition:

It’s bad-ass, as you can see.
“Steal Your Face” or “Stealie” skull: Perhaps the best-known Grateful Dead art icon is a red, white, and blue skull with a lightning bolt through it. The lightning bolt skull can be found on the cover of the album Steal Your Face, and the image is sometimes known by that name. It was designed by Owsley Stanley and artist Bob Thomas, and was originally used as a logo to mark the band’s equipment.
And oh, feel free to get a tattoo with this logo, if you feel you’ve earned the right. I mean, they can’t take that away from you, correct?
OK, thanks for strolling down memory lane…
