San Francisco Viral Video: An Uptown Tenderloin Thief Patiently Waits to Steal a MacBook Air – Blonde vs. Brunette

Monday, April 7th, 2014

This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.

Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:

Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?

Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?

And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?

Mmmm…

But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.

The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”

UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.

Case Number: 140281005

I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!

Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4

Location: Post & Taylor

Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)

At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”

And now a word for the trolls:

Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!

The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.

On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.

One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”

Randy Shaw’s Phoney-Baloney “Uptown” Tenderloin Protest Gets Covered by His Phoney-Baloney “Beyond Chron”

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Here’s a little background on Randy Shaw, who pays himself a six-figure salary with your money, who lives in a house bigger than yours, who lives in a neighborhood better than yours, who lives farther away from the Tenderloin than you, you know, in the next county over:

“Randy Shaw’s Power Plays – Sixteen years ago, Randy Shaw started a housing clinic with $50 and a good idea: educating tenants. Now he’s got more than $900,000 a year to spend — and clout to match.”

And that was written seventeen years ago.

And what good has the Tenderloin Housing Clinic Beyond Chron Randy Shaw empire done with the hundreds of millions given to it by SFGov the past third of century or so, anything at all?

Well you should take a tour of the place when you get the chance.

Speaking of which, Randy Shaw wants our Chief of Police to take a tour of the Twitterloin so the rent-seekers of the Twitterloin should walk on down to the Hall of Justice with a demand to take a tour of the Twitterloin?

And who’s paying for this foofaraw?

I’ll give you just one guess, San Francisco Taxpayer.

Anyway, here’s part of it, from the house organ of the Randy Shaw empire:

“Tenderloin Residents Challenge Chief Suhr to Tour Neighborhood, Increase Police 
by Karin Drucker‚ May. 31‚ 2013

“A delegation of 30 Tenderloin residents and workers went to the Hall of Justice on May 30 to deliver petitions including over 1500 signatures to SFPD Chief Greg Suhr.”

AND WHO’S PAYING FOR THIS? SFGOV? PERHAPS THE SFMTA COULD PAY ITSELF TO MARCH OVER TO THE SFPUC TO COMPLAIN ABOUT ILLEGAL PARKING BY SFPUC EMPLOYEES?

“As BeyondChron reported yesterday, people were lining up for nearly two weeks to sign the petitions, which invited Suhr to visit the Tenderloin to get a first-hand view of the need for more police and to then announce whether he was satisfied with neighborhood safety.”

OOH, I KNOW,  WHY DON’T WE DEFUND THE TENDERLOIN HOUSING CLINIC TO FREE UP MONEY TO PAY FOR MORE POLICE DEDICATED FOR THE TENDERLOIN? I’LL BET _THAT_ PROPOSAL WOULD MEET WITH GREG SUHR’S APPROVAL!

“In fact, the petition is perhaps most notable because it refutes the common-place narrative that residents of the Tenderloin do not care about the state of public safety. It’s just not true.”

THIS IS COLLEGE GIRL KARIN DRUCKER, FROM OBERLIN WITH LOVE, JUST A YEAR OR TWO AGO, ACTUALLY, ATTEMPTING TO SLAY HER SELF-CREATED STRAW DOG. UH, DO YOU DO _EVERYTHING_ RANDY SHAW TELLS YOU TO DO? ISN’T THAT, IN ITSELF, “DEMEANING” TO YOURSELF? BTW, WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA,  WAN OBIE.

ON IT GOES…

Now ironically, we’re in the era of stepped-up patrols in the greater Tenderloin area.

Like this was the scene on Market just yesterday, just as Randy Shaw was dispatching his flying monkeys to the HOJ:

I’m counting four fresh-faced recruits near Fifth heading towards Sixth. Of course this might not be the exact block (of Skid Row or the Tenderloin or the Twitterloin or whatever you want to call the area that the Tenderloin Housing Clinic has created over the years) that Randy Shaw wants patrolled but it’s something new, right?

OMG, It’s the Biggest Photowalk in World History – A Huge Success for Google Plus

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

I’ll tell you, I checked out this moving Mid-Market menagerie tonight and I half expected to see a soggy Robert Scoble wearing nothing but Google Glass in the vanguard leading the parade.

There were hundreds of them! With millions of dollars worth of photography equipment blithely making their way through the troubled Microsoft Yammerloin.

As seen heading down Market in front of the now-shuttered Market Street Cinema strip club, which has supposedly “closed for remodeling” (or so they claim) for months. (I weep for the strippers – how will they pay their way through grad school now?)

Oh we go, a girl PhotoWalker, among all the photo geeks and Glassholes, at the foot of McAllister Street in the heart of the world’s largest open-air stolen iPhone store, you know, in corrupt Randy Shaw’s corrupt Twitterloin. You know, he himself helped draw the Twitter tax exclusion zone.)

Hai, chiizu, moribund Hibernia Bank!

I’ll tell you, whenever I photowalk through the gritty “Uptown Tenderloin” NeMa New Market NoSoMa North of South of Market area , I always wear four inch heels and carry a $700 full-size carbon fiber tripod, natch.

All right, I dare anyone to watch this two-hour video of this evening’s event.

UPDATE: Oh, Dave Martinez won a pair of Glass.

All right, keep on keeping on, and clicking and walking, Photowalkers!

For all you newcomers, Randy Shaw is the person who made the Twitterloin the place it is today.

The first block of Turk Street, in the Twitterloin near Market Street:

It Takes a Village of SFPD Cops to Escort Mayor Ed Lee’s Walks About the Corrupt Twitterloin – And Where’s Randy Shaw?

Monday, April 15th, 2013

This is just part of the SFPD detail what follows Mayor Ed Lee about when he ventures into the corrupt Twitterloin.

As seen on Market Street at Sixth Friday AM:

Click to expand

Do I think the SFPD is far too obsequious when dealing with San Francisco Mayors?

Yes.

Do I understand why the the World’s Highest Paid Cops are that way?

Yes.

Can you spell obsequious without IOU?

No. Try it.

Am I happy that the current appointed Mayor (appointed by handsome man-child Gavin Newsom (IQ: 95), who, of course, got his start into politics by getting appointed by WIllie Brown) doesn’t have the SFPD drive a god damn SUV to Montana or someplace on the taxpayer’s dime?

Yes.

Am I happy that the current Mayor doesn’t treat the SFPD VIP security detail as kind of a personal motor pool, like when Gavin Newsom would get picked up at SFO in the GM hybrid SUV shortly after other elements of the SFPD chauffeured the then “First Lady” (which really isn’t the right phrase since she wasn’t even married to the Mayor at the time – she was First Girlfriend, let’s say, you know, at the time) to and from, I’m srsly, Quince restaurant in the stretched Lincoln Town Car?

Hell Yes.

Am I surprised to see that corrupt Randy Shaw* of the corrupt Tenderloin Housing Clinic (it’s budgeted for 95 million taxpayer dollars or something? All that for a clinic? Srsly?) isn’t lining up to hail our Dear Leader / WalkSF / SFGov right here?

Yes, a little.

And, does it look like WalkSF has taken a page from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition right down to the exact amount of an annual membership and the highly similar official “____ To Work Day?”

Yes.

And will tiny WalkSF feel pressure to endorse Ed Lee for Mayor the same way the SFBC did?

We’ll see.

* You know, a “Skid Row feudal lord,” the “political ally of slumlords,” and a “skid-row kingpin.”

Uh Oh: DPT Refuses to Ticket Parked Cars at Turk and Taylor – Are the Meter Maids Afraid of Twitterloin Thugs?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Check it, naive Oberlin grad Karin Drucker sends out a Valentine to the SFMTA MUNI DPT right here, in corrupt Randy Shaw’s corrupt, government-subsidized Beyond Chron blog.

Ouch.

I might have made a comment on her post, but, you know, corrupt Randy Shaw’s corrupt, government-subsidized Beyond Chron blog doesn’t allow comments, because Randy Shaw doesn’t want to hear what the proletariat has to say. (Isn’t that funny? And isn’t it funny that you can donate money to  the highly-political Beyond Chron blog and then deduct that donation from your taxes? How is that right? How is that legal? I don’t know.)

Of course, the average meter maid doesn’t have too much of an incentive to hang out on the 000 block of Turk, right? I mean, that’s the place where the SFPD tells criminals to do their thing, you know, when they loiter about too close to the front of Our Flagship Nordstrom, for example.

Anyway, this unticketing policy of the SFMTA is news to me.

So this means that, finally, the taxpayer-subsidized Beyond Chron has taught me something asides from how great and prescient Randy Shaw is.

Hurray!

Here’s the “unit block” of Turk as I saw it last week, just saying:

An Illustrated Guide to the YouTube Viral Video “When trannys attack! Tenderloin craziness!” – What’s Marke B’s Deal?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Not sure what Marke Bieschke’s deal is here.

‘Cause this is an arresting video, trannies or no. (Oh let’s run a search here - only 1600 hits on Google when you look for the words Marke and tranny in the same article at SFBG.com? Mmmm…)

But let’s take a look at the video, d’accord? D’accord.

Five foot nothing, barefoot, and wearing white PJ’s in Randy Shaw’s corrupt greater Uptown Tenderloin Twitterloin area – she has the fight in her but she lacks the stuff she needs, you know, like reach:

So she spent most of this squabble caught by her hair, oh well:

Well, at least he didn’t Break My Window to get the purse out of this aging BMW:

After you see your gf’s purse disappear into Randy Shaw’s corrupt Uptown Tenderloin, all you can do is point as the perp flees. (Is that a moose tattoo on his now naked torso?)

The purse snatching definitely led to a brief cessation of hostilities:

And the, in the end, a swift sucker punch, you know, to say good-bye:

Just Another Day in Randy Shaw’s “Uptown Tenderloin” in the Twitterloin – Video: “When trannys attack! Tenderloin craziness!”

Monday, February 11th, 2013

The dreams of Randy Shaw:

By the summer of 2008, going “uptown” in San Francisco will mean heading to the Tenderloin

Now here’s the reality of the winter of 2013, with two people going “uptown” on each other, via Bluoz:

Oh Randy, will you ever win, you know, with the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars given to you over the years?

Some art students should park a rig like this overnight on Turk in the “Uptown” Tenderloin (“Near Union Square!”) with a video camera fixed on it. You know, just to see what would happen to the buggy. Good times…
