TASER TASER TASER – Sign Up Now for These Official SFPD TASER Meetings – TASER TASER TASER

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

The cops can’t say TASER, but I can: TASER TASER TASER. (I can also say band aid and realtor.)

There are only 100 seats, so these free meetings will sell out, and maybe the first one already has, but IDK because I can’t get to the evite page. But you can, Gentle Reader, I’m sure of it. You’re very clever.

 “Community Input on CEDs (Conducted Energy Device)
Tue, Sep 12, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove Street, San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco Police Commission along with the SFPD and with the facilitation support of the Human Right’s Commission is inviting community members to weigh in, ask questions, share perspectives and voice concerns about whether CEDs (Conducted Energy Devices, also known as Tasers) should be considered as a force option for the Police Department. The meetings are also a platform to provide input on the draft policy (http://sanfranciscopolice.org/sites/default/files/Documents/PoliceCommission/police-commission-CED%20policy%20draft%20dated%2008%3A25%3A17%20%28%22clean%20version%29.pdf) to be presented for discussion at a future Police Commission meeting. We will have two meetings. First meeting is: Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 6pm- 8 pm @Bill Graham Auditorium, 99 Grove (http:/ /evite .me/kS846TMa7q) Because of the capacity limitations of this space, we ask those interested to register via Evite. For safety, we are limited to 100 attendees and will accept comments, feedback, questions and concerns by email sfpd.commission@sfgov.org or via the Commission’s Facebook and/or Twitter.

All the deets, in pdf format:

Spot the former SF Police Commish who did a 180 on “Conducted Energy Devices” a while back. I think he was the critical vote.

And in the meantime, Frisco still has TASERs all over, they’re just not being used by the SFPD. Think of different LEOs what operate here, some in large numbers:

Japantown Taser-Gun Cell Phone Mugging Foiled by GPS – Suspect Caught in Twitterloin at 7th and Market

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The SFPD has just fleshed out this story of a trip to Japantown gone wrong.

Turns out the guy trying to fence(?) the booty is less than 18 years old.

Anyway, all the deets:

“SFPD Arrest Suspect by way of Smartphone GPS Technology
11-106

Posted Date: 9/30/2011

San Francisco Police Officers at Northern Station arrested a suspect in connection with a robbery by way of GPS technology.

The suspect who cannot be identified due to the fact he is a juvenile, was taken into custody on September 29, 2011 and charged for possession of stolen property.

In this incident, the victim was walking home from work on the 1600 block of Post St. at 11:00 p.m. when she was suddenly shocked in the neck by a stun gun. The suspect then stole her belongings, which included a Smartphone. Shortly after, a group of good Samaritans came to the victim’s aid and she was able to call the police.

Responding officers arrived on scene and asked the victim if she subscribed to a GPS tracking device on her Smartphone. The victim stated, “Yes”.

A tracking device is a service that allows subscribers to track their Smartphone when their device is either stolen or lost. Using GPS technology, the officers were able to track the Victim’s stolen Smartphone to the area of 7th St and Market.

Officers responded to the area and were able to track down the Smartphone through its tracking device software.

The officers were able to detain the suspect who had the Smartphone in his possession. The suspect was placed under arrest for possession of stolen property.”

Well, I guess this is a happy ending…

The intersection of 7th and Market Street in San Francisco is the world capitol of black market iPhone sales:
