    These are the stories Campos probably likes as it keeps the neighborhood affordable for his progressive supporters. Remember when Chris Daly opposed the proposal to beautify the tenderloin by planting more trees, because he claimed it would make the neighborhood too nice and lead to more gentrification?

    “Robbery with force” is a redundant comment. The definition of robbery is theft with force. Reporting and writing news properly is important to readers.
