I think Gavin has shipped some of his homeless crazies to Northern Virginia.

This morning at the Wawa getting my coffee one of them was yelling something about coats.

Then, as I walked out, she was outside and was yelling at the black guy who walked out in front of me (and who never said word one) about how her father used to beat her until she was 14 and domestic violence doesn't know color.

Another one has been hanging out in front of the Wawa on the benches by the bus stop and has written some sort of sign and tied it to the light pole. Saturday when I went past she was pointing at the sign and screeching about how it's the law and we're all violating the law.

Remember that article saying that the problem with San Fran was that it's been controlled by republicans for too long?
Well to continue the theme that it's all republican's fault....

California Gov. Gavin Newsom shifts blame on Republican critics for amplifying homeless crisis plaguing San Francisco and claims 'they have to focus on our failures for them to be right' - despite the city facing an exodus over crime

Ruled self defense

Quote
A San Francisco jury on Friday found a homeless man not guilty after being accused of using a metal pipe to beat a San Francisco's former fire commissioner who suffered a broken jaw, fractured skull that required 51 stitches and a traumatic brain injury.

Quote
Chilling footage showed Doty grabbing the crowbar out of the trash and taking practice swings moments before the attack.

Horrifying footage shows Doty backing Carmignani against the wall while waving the crowbar as he tries to defend himself.

Walking away and then going to a pile of trash and finding a crowbar then coming back, a good distance mind you, and beating the crap out of someone with the crowbar in revenge is not self defense!

Welcome to San Fran

San Francisco vagrant, 25, is found not guilty of viciously bashing ex-fire commissioner, 54, in the head with a metal crowbar after he was pepper sprayed for lurking in front of the victim's mom's home

Welcome to San Fran

The difference between the red and the blue is really becoming similar to the difference between countries.

Certainly there may be much more to the story, but based on what I read in several news reports, my guess is the SanFran cops did zilch to remove the aggressor from in front of the mother's home. The son may not have been on the legal side using bear spray (again, depending on more info), but it's certain that the bum was the aggressor when taking the time to find a deadly weapon and returning with it.

If who had the bear spray and who had the crowbar was reversed I can say with near certainty it would not have been even remotely considered self defense.

Free booze for homeless alcoholics

Quote
he City of San Francisco is providing free beer and vodka shots to homeless alcoholics at taxpayer expense under a little-known pilot program.

The "Managed Alcohol Program" operated by San Francisco's Department of Public Health serves regimented doses of alcohol to voluntary participants with alcohol addiction in an effort to keep the homeless off the streets and relieve the city's emergency services. Experts say the program can save or extend lives, but critics wonder if the government would be better off funding treatment and sobriety programs instead.

Back when Jen had me carting her from ER to ER, I made friends with the staff (who probably ultimately helped me save my life...) at a few... And yeah, I bummed a few diet cokes.
 
And I noticed that some of them had sixers of bud in the beverage fridges.
