Fay Abuelgasim was surprised to find taquerias side by side with Senegalese, Chinese and Greek restaurants in the Mission. She thought they would only be Latin. The homeless people outside the 16th street BART station also amazed her. From Sudan, a war ravaged nation, she has seen poverty, but was not expecting so much in the United States.

  1. I appreciate your effort to provide transparency and awareness around violence in the neighborhood. But, I’d like to question the appropriateness of posting a photograph of the scene which includes the supposed victim. It is both insensitive and invasive to reveal the identities of crime victims without their consent, not even taking into the account that she specifically declined to speak with you. The police don’t do this, and professional journalists certainly don’t either. Is this really how MissionLocal would like to be engaging with the community?
