The multimillionaire, tech startup founder of CashApp was murdered in San Francisco.
Slain Tech Exec Bob Lee Screamed for ‘Help’ in 911 Call After SF Stabbing
Tech executive Bob Lee walked up an empty San Francisco street in the early hours of Tuesday gripping his side with one hand and his cellphone in the other, leaving a trail of blood behind him.
“Help!” he screamed into his phone. “Someone stabbed me.”
Those were some of the last words Lee said on a 911 call before collapsing on a Rincon Hill sidewalk, according to surveillance footage and records reviewed exclusively by The Standard.
Surveillance footage reviewed by The Standard shows Lee, who had already been stabbed, walking up Main Street away from the Bay Bridge at around 2:30 a.m. Lee crosses the intersection at Harrison Street and walks up to a parked white Camry with its hazard lights flashing.
Lee then lifts his shirt—as if to show the driver his wound and ask for help—and falls to the ground after the car drives away, the footage shows. He gets up and walks back toward the Bay Bridge before falling to the ground again outside an apartment building called the Portside.
At some point, Lee dialed 911 and repeatedly screamed for help, saying he needed to go to the hospital, according to the records reviewed by The Standard. Lee made the call at 2:34 a.m. and police arrived on the scene less than six minutes later.
Lee was unconscious when officers found him on the ground, police said.
Rincon Hill is one of the more affluent and peaceful areas of San Francisco.
On the heels of that stabbing is this story.
Former San Francisco fire commissioner attacked with crowbar day after Bob Lee stabbed to death
Neighbors of former San Francisco Fire Commissioner Don Carmignani said “no one is safe” in the city after he was brutally attacked by a transient with a metal crowbar just steps away from his family’s front door.
Carmignani, 53, was leaving his mother’s home at about 7 p.m. in the Marina District when he was accosted by a man waving an industrial metal crowbar, friends of the ex-commissioner told The Post.
Joe Alioto-Veronese, a prominent attorney and friend, said Carmignani was at his mother’s home when he noticed Doty and two other transients blocking the driveway.
When Carmignani asked them to move, he was bludgeoned in the back of the head by Doty, which injured the former smoke-eater’s skull and brain.
How has the city of San Francisco responded to this?

“Nothing to see here.”
This actually shocks me.
When the poor and middle-class are the victims of crime, it’s usual for the government not to give a shit.
When multimillionaire business people/political donors and government officials are the victims of crimes, the powers that be kick into action.
In Florida, when people who lived on the canals (used to be not valued property) complained that the gators were eating their pets, nobody cared. Once a gator attacked a rich guy on a county club golf course, they started dealing with the gator surge.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen a city not give a flying fuck when a VIP got murdered.
This is an adherence to a Woke narrative that shocks even me.
There is no recovery for San Francisco.
When its Tech Executives are acceptable casualties, the city is fucked.

Re the Camry driver leaving … I’d like to think I would have tried to help. But in that city, at that time of night … I’m glad I didn’t have to make the decision.
How much did tech exec guy donate to all the local ‘D’s to get the licensing and permits for his startup? How much money did he contribute after?
I would bet ‘former fire commish’ votes straight ticket as well.
Same w/ everyone in those neighborhoods because ‘those knuckle-dragging maga republicans….’.
Let it burn.
Maybe he was a friend of the Clintons? Then a knife in the gut counts as natural death.
There is the whole conspiracy angle at play. Guy is one of the founders of an app the provides banking services like or adjacent free of kyc laws and regulations. Im still surprised there is no footage of the actual attack.
