Why Does the San Francisco Controller’s Office Consider Rising Residential Rents a “Positive?” Plus, BART Traffic Way Down

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

See if you can make heads or tails from this recent chart taken from the BOMA.

Maybe this chart has been dumbed down too much?

Anyway, check out the Average Saturday Exits of shoppers and pickpockets using BART to get to Union Square:

How Should You Wear Your Taser on the Streets of San Francisco?

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Now this officer hanging about the award-winning urban planning fiasco know as the Central Freeway and the Octavia Boulevard is not a member of the SFPD. No, he’s in the CHP, and this is how he carries his ‘less-lethal” TASER X26 Electronic Control Device (ECD).

That’s correct, it’s right next to his standard issue Smith & Wesson Model 4006 semi-automatic with four-inch barrel and his Swiss-ish sport chronograph (which, for some reason he wears on the right side). Of course, the T.A.S.E.R. is facing the wrong way, so that’s a good method to keep things straight when it comes time to unholster.

I’m sure there are other strategies as well, but this particular approach might be of interest to those following the case of Oscar Grant, aka the BART Police shooting of 2009.

Of course, it’s not time yet for Tasers in the San Francsico Police Department.

To be continued…

And, hey “ladies”, what’s stopping you from getting your very own Taser C2 complete with laser pointer sighting? Amazon has a nice pink one for just $302. But it’s also available in eight other designer colors, including leopard skin. And did you know that it’s a “court-proven fact” that “not one person has died from a Taser“? (Really? Not sure about that one.) Anyway, see it in action here.

But what if bad people get hold of these things? Well…

Unique Anti-Felon Identification (AFID) tags make it possible to identify the Owner. The Taser C2 cartridges contain 20 to 30 AFID tags that are ejected from the cartridge when a TASER is used. The AFID tags are unique and police can use these to determine the owner of the TASER in case the TASER was wrongfully used.”

Did not know that.

Imagine a world where everyone had access to Thomas A Swift’s Electric Rifle….
