most-crimes

Los Shucos, the Latin hot dog restaurant on 22nd Street, was broken into before December 31, according to its owner. Sofia Keck emailed Mission Local on Saturday saying that her cash register and sound equipment had been stolen, and that the thieves left a glove behind possibly with fingerprints.

Keck said Los Shucos would be closed for the weekend and that she would invest in a security system.

“We will be installing a security system. I hope no more burglaries happen in the neighborhood and I’m glad everyone is ok,” she wrote. “Due to the incident Los Shucos will be closed the whole weekend.”

The crime was reported to the police, Keck said, but was not included in the crime recap given to media outlets.

On Saturday, New Year’s Eve, at 7:20 p.m., a 23-year-old woman got off a bus near 22nd and Folsom streets and began walking home when two men in their early 20s began yelling at her from across the street.

    These crimes are disgusting! Who are these assailants? What type of community do we live in? It’s embarrassing and sad.

We’ve changed our comments policy. Why? Anonymity breeds boorishness. At Mission Local, we know a lot of our readers personally and whether we agree with you or not on this or that issue, we have invariably found you to be decent, well-meaning, people. The kind of readers we like to have for neighbors. We know the thoughts and opinions of the majority of our readers are not accurately reflected in the sampling we see in our comments. We don’t know why people have a difficult time commenting in an open and respectful way on the internet, but we do feel the anonymity we have afforded only contributes to the problem. Moreover, it does nothing for building community, forging bridges. Therefore and forthwith: You can sign in through Facebook to comment or you can register on our site, but you must use your full name. All other comments will be zapped. If you use your full name and still insult or defame another reader, the author or anyone else, we’ll zap those too. We hope this encourages readers who have felt unwelcome in our comments section to contribute their insights.
