Oh No, SFPD Chief Greg Suhr Bans Flair! – SF Weekly Covers “Sticker Purge” – Here’s What Excessive Flair Looks Like

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Well, here you go:

Sticker Shock: A Corporal Punishment Joke Triggers a Police Decal Purge by Joe Eskenazi @EskSF

“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.

First, check out the stealie logo stuck on the magazine floorplate of this SFPD officer’s SIG Sauer P220 automatic. Is he assigned to Terrapin StationVia Xian:

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:

“5JEWELRY 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.”

Moving on.

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…

Seems a bit selfish to try to take street parking just for yourselves, Western Addition millionaires…

I Don’t Care What They Say, Here’s the Real Star of SF’s “Terminator 5″ Film Production (Code Name: “VISTA”)

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

This Chrysler product, having decals I’ve never seen before IRL, has something to do with the filming of Terminator 5 about San Francisco these days.

That’s my first point.

Does This Thing Have A Hemi? Yes, yes it does:

Also, the code name for the production is VISTA, as you can see on the yellow sign.

That’s my final point.

Why Does SFMTA MUNI DPT Put “ELECTRIC POWERED” Stickers on Its Diesel-Powered Buses?

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

It’s a simple question.

Now actually, the SFMTA does have electric buses.

But those vehicles don’t have “ELECTRIC POWERED” stickers.

The only MUNI vehicles with “ELECTRIC POWERED” on the side are diesels

Thusly:

Isn’t it ironic?

Dont’cha think?

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and diesel, the term “Biodiesel” is a lie the way the SFMTA uses it.

How about that?

Hey! Speaking of MUNI and petroleum products, which has spilled more into San Francisco Bay – the famous oil-spilling Cosco Busan or MUNI? 

Can you guess? It’s MUNI.

In closing, MUNI sucks.

Hachi Machi, It’s Time for Bocce! Rec and Park Rolls Out New Grass on Site of Historic OccupySF 2011 in JHP

Friday, January 6th, 2012

You see, the Occupiers put their tents on the bocce court grass last year. So that killed the turf.

This was the scene yesterday as the new turf came in:

All that’s left to do is clean up the Bradley Manning stickers and then, once again, San Francisco’s at-risk Rich White People will have a place to keep busy and stay out of trouble.

You know, there was talk of putting in a playground here, you know, for kids, but RWP didn’t like that idea so much.

Oh well.

Stickers on the Bocce Ball Courts are All That’s Left of OccupySF: “MAKE BANKS PAY” Plus “Free Bradley Manning”

Are people really going to play bocce here, on the site of OccupySF, again?

Embarcadero Center Employees are Now Cleaning Up the Justin Herman Plaza Bocce Ball Courts? Stickers Be Gone

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

This was the scene yesterday, with a man trying to remove pro-OccupySF stickers from the railing installed for the bocce courts recently installed for and by the rich, WASPy one-percent.*

The cops who have been patrolling this area for months were nowhere to be seen at this particular moment yesterday.

There are three stickers visible here. They have words like “war” and “cops” on them. The uniform badge says “Embarcadero Center Janitorial.”

Apparently, Embarcadero Center / the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero Hotel have become clubhouses of sorts for anti-Occupy forces. Per the Counterpunch:

 “On two separate occasions, I saw cops assembled in the Hyatt and a couple of other nearby hotels. I was sent by our General Assembly to do recon so I buttoned my shirt up, took off my bandana and put on my best English accent.

“Walking with a confident stride toward the Hyatt, wary security and bellhops opened the door for me. I found the cops relaxing in a conference room.”

When oh when will the one-percent reoccupy this part of Justin Herman Plaza?

*This includes former Mayor Gavin Newsom, also a rich, WASPy member of the 1%. For some reason, a small, Eurocentric lawn sport project was Job One for him, back in the day.
