  1. If there was a supermarket where the empty Delano’s sits gathering graffiti, these robberies would likely not happen.

  2. Campos doesn’t care. He’s out renaming airports instead. I wish more was going on to stop the day-to-day crime around the Mission but it seems most people just don’t care.

  3. Gangs, can use please protect the civilians in your territory? Don’t pick at them. They patronize the shops and bars that you collect your protection money from. Also, please attack the punks that are attacking/robbing your constituents. Thanks!

    1. Gangs don’t seem to have much hold on their territory as they used to! My grandfather was always badgered for money by a gang here in the old valencia gardens. When some punks tried to rob him the gang ran the punks off and returned my grandfathers things.
