De-Reporting and De-Policing in San Francisco: Associated Press: We Heart Colored Gangs: AP Runs 575-Word Non-Story on Mass Park Shooting, Protecting Cut-Throats “of Color”; Municipal Gov’t Wastes Tens of Millions of Taxpayer Dollars, While Handcuffing Cops

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco park where three people were shot on a sunny afternoon underwent a $20 million renovation last year and immediately became one of the city’s most popular destinations — and a magnet for drug use, gang activity and violence.

The new playground, additional bathrooms and improved amenities of the park in a gentrifying neighborhood of trendy restaurants and bakeries attracts dog walkers, families and young tech workers. Facebook founder

Mark Zuckerberg’s $10 million home overlooks the park.

[How long, until he sells it?]

But the 13-acre (52,600 square-meter) park with spectacular skyline views and a high school across the street sits in the middle of the Mission District neighborhood, which is still dominated by gangs and homeless drug users.

The shooting Thursday afternoon at the park that sent families and other visitors scurrying for cover appeared to be a targeted incident, and investigators are looking into gang ties, San Francisco police spokesman Robert Rueca said. The assailants wore red shirts and bandanas covering their faces, witnesses said.

[Does this mean the shooters were members of the Bloods gang, and thus, black, or some other gang? Even with the bandannas, witnesses would have been able to determine the shooters’ race, but Associated Press operatives Paul Elias and Linda Wang are censoring that information, which means that they are loyal to the shooters.]

Supervisor Jeff Sheehy, whose district includes the park, called for a “top-to-bottom” review of security for the park and said a stepped-up police presence if necessary. “We have to do everything we can to make the park safer,” he said.

Police said Friday they are increasing patrols of uniformed officers in the park.

Thursday’s shooting occurred on a bridge that connects the park to the neighborhood and spans a train track. Police and others said the bridge is a source of many of the park’s problems because drug use can be easily hidden and it offers easy escape.

A Feb. 9 police report showed two men told officers they were smoking methamphetamine under the bridge when two men walked up to them and asked “where you from” before one of the men shot one of the smokers in the arm.

[There’s a whole backstory to “Where you from?” that Paul Elias and Linda Wang are either censoring, or which they refused to even ask the SFPD about. It would tell us where the gangsters were from, where they thought their vic was from, and the two groups’ respective races and/or ethnicities.]

Police said they could not immediately provide the number of times officers have been called to the park this year and last.

[Either the SFPD is lying, or the number of calls is so high—in the hundreds?—that someone would have to take an hour to tally them.]

The park has been the location of several recent high-profile incidents, including a group of young attackers beating, stabbing and seriously wounding a 23-year-old man on the afternoon of May 17. Fights erupted in the park the night after the city’s annual Gay Pride parade June 25. A woman was hit in the head with a bottle and a man was stabbed.

[In other words, the gang or gangs hates homosexuals, but Paul Elias and Linda Wang refuse to name it, because they are loyal to non-white criminal gangs, even if they brutally attack their homosexual allies.]

On July 10, a 20 –year-old man was stabbed during an afternoon brawl involving about a dozen youths, police reported. Skateboarders and police clashed violently last month after officers tried to break up an unsanctioned skating contest at the park.

[What “youths”? What “skateboarders”? Well, “youths” is typically racist MSM code for youngish, racist black thugs, but the MSM would also be willing to use apply the code to their Hispanic, criminal allies.]

“Everybody in the community is concerned,” said Peter Lewis, a neighborhood activist. “It’s getting worse.”

[After spending $20 million in taxpayer money?!]

Frank Diaz was tying helium balloons to picnic tables and laying out food for a company picnic Friday near the bridge where the shooting happened.

“Of course, I panicked,” Diaz said about hearing about the shooting. “I have been planning this for months.”

Diaz, 43, said he went ahead with the picnic after police assured him uniformed officers would patrol the park.

[So, where were the cops when the shooting began? Why have we not heard of any arrests? Were the police in hiding?]

On Friday, underneath the bridge, Ryan Murphy and Rose Sergeant walked the train tracks with trash pickers, picking up discarded syringes and needles. The two spend about 10 volunteer hours a week picking up and disposing of used needles throughout the city. They said they found eight Friday morning.

“This is a place where we come often,” Sergeant said.


This story corrects the spelling of Frank Diaz’s first name.

The bridge is to blame. If not for that damned bridge everything would be OK. Sure!

The city "fathers" of San Fran Freako will say their city has a diversity and vibrancy that is enviable.

Those two have a license and training to deal with HAZMAT such as used needles and expended condoms? Where is there safety suits, gloves, masks and goggles? And dispose of in a safe and authorized manner. They have been trained and equipped to do all that? I doubt it. Maybe just spreading disease of a communicable nature over a wider area.

Speaking of "colored gangs",there's a new kind of colored gang--CNN and MSNBC proudly displays them every damn day--talking their black/minority b.s.non stop.
This morning I had the misfortune to flip on A.M.Joy for 3 minutes.I think I do it just to reinforce my hatred for these nutjob networks.3 minutes is plenty of time to accomplish that task.
I changed the remote to MSNBC as they were "discussing" Eric Bolling's suspension from FOXNEWS--joining Charles Payne and Bill O'Reilly as living targets for extermination from the airwaves by liberals.
Joy Reid concluded quickly,with the enthusiastic assistance of a couple white liberal writers,he was guilty.
"Bolling sent pictures of his genitalia to women at FOX.It's obvious this is the culture of Roger Ailes continuing.How do women work there?"
A lot of,what the various 24 hour "news" networks talk about now,is EACH OTHER!!!
FOX:"CNN fired people who admitted reporting fake news."
CNN:"Fox made up the Seth Rich scandal."
There used to be a Bert Convy show called,"Tattletales".
I guess its back--and then some.But not in an entertaining way whatsoever.Add the increasingly over-representation of blacks on the airwaves bitching about whites,white crime(what little of it there is) and refusing to report on black crime and bad behavior--and I find myself watching the horse racing network and baseball more often than not.

Since I'm a Mets fan, baseball currently offers no solace.

GRA,

The Jets will do fine, just as soon as they learn how to field an NFL team, without an NFL quarterback.
