    • missionsf

      i hope so to….the white young ones are the crazy ones who vandalise anything for the hell of it

    • Mission resident

      The street crimes have to stop. Let’s make the Mission safe for all. Shame on those who have the gall to “hope” that the victims were “techy scum”.

    No description of the perps; but from the locations it is easy to assume the type.

    • LT.

      What type are you implying and from what location there are all “types” of people that stays all over SF, mission neighborhood included do you even stay there are nearby enough to comment the different demographic groups in the area

    • Dave

      Type? Maybe you ought to enlighten us.

      • LT.

        Exactly what I want to know from me actually living in the mission there is no “type” of anything now there are intergrated communities with different lifestyle of people’s just between 16th & 24th and mission there are so many great things and people as well as the bad but how can you categorized a whole community from the actions of a small group, people would like you to believe everything is corrupt under a certain tax bracket but actually everything is under resourced under a certain tax bracket and comments like those “type” of people is what’s use to justify letting it remain how it is I can’t believe how racist people still are and I even been discriminated aganist in Safeway while waiting for my little daughter to come from the restroom and lady looks at me and say that’s why the store is going down because they let all these street people in here and I remark what is a street person I’m a teacher, student, father, mentor, activist for the environment and human equality through self sustainability, and a Christian amongst other things but street person what do everybody has to wear Armani Versace Abercrombie to be looked at different bad people come in all shapes sizes colors neighborhoods and in different types I clothes so for anyone to read these articles and just say I can tell what type of people I would be just as wrong to say I know what type a person you from your appalling comment lady! Very quaint!

          Good heavens. Have you ever heard of a “period?”

          http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Period_%28punctuation%29

          • LT.

            Lol I can admit my grammar needs work Hence forth the student part I take English this summer thanks for the observation. Lol

          • LT.

            Out of all that all you got was the point that I didn’t use a period them have the nerve to wiki the definition well on look up childish as well as immature then life sine you choose to correct my grammar when I can type how I please do you grade me are you Mavis Beacon? Do you pay my phone bill all the answers are no just Like the answer to the question was your post relevant

        • Kbarb

          >> I’m a teacher . . .

          Even after your second rant, you still can’t find the punctuation keys – lol.

          I think you miss the point. When you can’t write . . . or don’t make the effort to write above a certain level, no one is going to take you seriously, no matter how good your points are. What stands out above all is the markedly bad writing.

          • Kbarb

            And besides, your defensiveness in replying – with laughable references to phone bills, etc – just compounds your problems and makes you look worse.

    Please post more detailed description of the perpetrators, if available.

    Been in the mission for quite some time , and all the locations these crimes are happening in seem to be consistent with the mission of the past . North and south hoods robbing people at d lo park , and groups of 2 or 3 jumping people for their belongings . Those hoods are still there in full effect , and most likely wont stop considering the crimes are happening earlier in the day . The recent wave of new mission residents in the last 10 years has definitely help clean up the face of the Mission, but at its core body bag park is still there , and the block is still banging . I hope the new residents, businesses, community support and money that come with it can help create a safer mission for the city of san francisco .

      I agree with that but what’s needed along with new faces and revenue is resources and advocates for the resources to go out to the neighborhoods and at least attempt to get through to the ones willing to accept then over time more will come along and in time the youth will have more examples and oppertunity to choose a different path and I’m speaking from exp. in a SF mission neighborhood

      • RSSF

        Couldn’t agree more L.T.

      • G.W.

        I agree with LT’s last comment. Very powerful statement. Born and raised in the Mission. My children are second generation Mission district residents.

        • LT.
