  1. Yea, It’s sad how we can’t walk our own neighborhoods without looking over our shoulders, scare to get rob or shot at with these drive-by. What they need to do is enforced brighter lights in these dark areas, more patrolling instead of focusing on the bus stops and job opportunities for these young/felons instead of turning our backs on them because they are felons. Oh yeah, and just because because you look hispanic doesn’t mean your automatically in a gang or criminal, lets not be ignorant, just saying.

    1. Get out the mission if you don’t like it. The police’s job is to enforce laws not accommodate how you personally feel and kill hipsters and yuppies.

      1. Is not the police duty to ENFORCED laws, their job is to PROTECT & SERVE the community, and im not speaking to accommodate anyone’s need, get that straight homeboy

      2. Shut up, troll.
        If this is the Linda J I know, she’s lived in the Mission longer than I’ve been alive and she doesn’t have to answer to a little punk like you.

        1. By dictionary terms Police the civil force of a national or local government, responsible for the prevention and detection of crime and the maintenance of public order. Nothing about serving the community when was the last time you seen a cop feed the homeless…. never.
