    On Wed night I saw two teenage boys heckling and threatening a muni driver at 25th and Potrero. Apparently they had approached her while she was using the port-a-potty and tried to tip it over. After she came out she threatened to use pepper spray on them as they stood at a distance yelling curses and threats at her. They left after I told them I was calling the police. These young men were dressed in punk style clothing (all black, leather jackets, skinny jeans) and both had skateboards. Please be aware of your surroundings. And the lesson here, in my opinion, is that when neighbors hear screams it is their responsibility to intervene and call the authorities. Lets take responsibility for one another!
