    All of this has been going on for several years now and will only ramp up as the summer months approach. People need to start organizing counter measures with the police to make any sort of difference, law officials will not change a thing working on their own.

      People need to wake up and respect that they have invaded a poor neighborhood with desparate teenagers. Walking around at 2:00am texting leaves you wide open to be robbed. People need to get together and teach each other how to live in this city by being aware of their surroundings & respectful to the local population . Out of towners putting more local poor young people of color in jail is not the solution. Don’t be a target in the first place. Wake up.

    Anyone know what happened on Mission between 16th and 17th on Friday early evening? The entire block was blocked off by the police with crime scene tape.

    I regularly read the crime blog. We all need to know what is happening, whether positive or negative, in our community. My one complaint about this section is its so-called political correctness In not describing the alleged suspects in greater detail. Anyone can be a teenager or a 30-year old man, but we need further descriptions if we are in any way able to help out the police or even more importantly, to keep ourselves safe.
