Early Monday:



Police found a black male suffering life-threatening stab wounds on Grace Street. No arrests have been made.

Sunday:

Two black males reportedly entered a business on the 2000 block of San Bruno, demanded money, and pistol-whipped an employee, leaving the victim with non-life-threatening injuries. No arrests.

A white female was waiting for a cab at 18th and Sanchez when a black male reportedly confronted her with a gun and demanded her property. She complied, and escaped uninjured. Say it with me, no arrest.

You know about the Marina Toilet Torching already.

A hispanic male was at 16th and South Van Ness when he reportedly heard a gunshot and realized he had been shot (in a non-life-threatening way) in the leg. Arrests were made. HAHA not really.

Saturday:

Two black men were at Ramsell and Randolph when they reportedly heard gunfire, then one realized he’d received a life-threatening gunshot would to his leg. Four black male suspects were seen taking flight. Arrests? Try unicorns.

A white female was at her home on 800 Mount Vernon san francisco“>the 800 block of Mt. Vernon when an (undescribed) suspect reportedly entered her home and stole property from her.

Late Friday:

An undescribed-by-SFPD victim and suspect reportedly got into a fight at Larkin and Ellis, leaving them with a non-life-threatening stab wound. Surprisingly, no arrest has been made.

An unknown suspect reportedly drove up to two black men at a Muni stop at Bridgeview and Scotia and opened fire. Both victims ended up with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. Wanna make a guess about arrests made? I’ll give you a hint, the number rhymes with “hero.”

Four Asian males reportedly forced their way into a residence on Banbury Drive, tied up three victims and fled with currency. Arrests made: zip, zero, zilch.

    But, were any arrests made?

    Seriously though, this is a bummer.

    I am very hopeful that arrests will be made! Perhaps it is just a matter of time? Look at me all hope springs anew and holiday time!

    In fairness, do you really expect SFPD to solve every crime and make an arrest within 48 hours of an incident? Not sure if this was the Appeal’s attempt at humor, or trying to call out the SFPD. Can’t isolate a weekend’s worth of incidents and conclude something is wrong with law enforcement for not having made arrests. Take a look at the location of each incident; not rocket science to figure out that bad shit happens in bad neighborhoods (‘cept Banbury Drive). You know what is the biggest obstacle to law enforcement in the Mission and the Ingleside? Lack of cooperative witnesses who will tell the police what they saw.

    That conclusion was not made! It was merely an attempt to avoid repetition. When we call out the SFPD, you know it.
