  1. A man punches a 66 year old woman in the face for her necklace. I’m telling you, we’ve really got to do something about all this gentrification in our neighborhood.

    1. What does gentrification have to do with punching a woman in the face ?
      I’m not big on gentrification, but seems a lapse in logic there.

      1. I think it’s a clumsy attempt at sarcasm. SInce you didn’t get it, I would say it was unsuccessful as well.

  2. As the area is slowly but surely improving, unfortunately there is still lowlifes beating up on the residents. Thank you SFPD for getting this trash & taking him off the streets.
