This is what the people of San Francisco have been reduced to

I have covered the epidemic of car break-ins in San Francisco before.

Over 30,000 car break-ins per year in the city.  The state legislation has killed any attempt to make it easier to prosecute people who break into cars.

I said I know a story about a trans woman, criminal recidivist, killing a rich guy’s Chihuahua while breaking into his Mercedes was not peak San Francisco.  That was bad, but there was room for worse.

This is worse.

San Francisco residents pleading with thieves to spare their vehicles

San Francisco residents fed up with having their cars broken into multiple times have taken matters into their own hands.

Good.  The criminals in San Fran are out of control.  It’s time that the people stand up to them the way the police and legislature won’t.  Maybe if a few car thieves get beat within an inch of their lives by some angry citizens, the break in rate will go down.

They’re hoping to connect with would be thieves on an emotional level.

Oh for fuck’s sake.

Fed up with having his vehicle broken into four times over a year and a half, Felix Kubin decided to express his frustration, writing on the rear windshield, “Thank you for letting this glass remain unbroken. We are a poor family with two kids. No values inside except diapers.”

San Francisco residents are now begging and pleading with the criminals no to be the victims of crimes.

They have been reduce to begging the criminals for mercy.

“Maybe they feel pity or like empathy,” Kubin told ABC7 News.

No they fucking don’t.  If they did, they wouldn’t have broken into the car in the first place.  A sign isn’t going to deter a potential thief out the goodness of his heart.

When will people learn that there is evil in this world.  The guy who is going to break into a car is going to do it because he doesn’t care that is is wrong.  A sign isn’t going to play on his empathy because that empathy doesn’t exist.

On the driver’s side window he wrote, “No valuables inside except baby’s milk.”

On the rear passenger window he wrote, “Nothing to take valuable in this car. Thank you.”

He’s thanking the criminals for leaving his car alone.  That is the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

I was wrong.  This sign is the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

After the second break in, I’d sell my home and move.  I would not live in a place that my car was broken into six times.

Kubin and his wife learned what would work the hard way. First break in, they lost $1,500 worth of sporting goods.

“I think maybe it’s my fault I left the car in such a place,” said Kubin.

I guess the car’s skirt was too short.

Kubin says he thinks thieves are using a tool that breaks glass in an emergency.

“It makes treasure hunting in somebody’s cars much more easy,” he told ABC7 News.

  It’s not treasure hunting.  It’s a crime.

SFPD says “Park Smart!”

“If you love it, don’t leave it.”

“In one sense, it’s creative and it does follow the strategy that people are taking responsibility. But on the other hand, it’s really sad that people feel they have to do that,” San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said, responding to the pictures we showed him of vehicles with notes.

The SFPD has better things to do than protect city residents from crime.  They have to ignore people shooting up drugs in BART stations.  They also have criminal illegal aliens to not arrest.  It’s exhausting work trying to protect he city’s residents while being Woke and politically correct.

“That equates to roughly 3,000 fewer car break-ins than this time last year, which is really, really good news for us,” said Chief Scott.

He says it’s thanks to extra foot patrols and educating people.

“We would like to get it down to zero, but it’s still happening,” said Chief Scott.

Translation: “We’ll still have 27,000 car break-in this year.”  That’s nothing to brag about.

Chief Scott tells ABC7 News he believes it’s a small group of people that are responsible for a lot of the issue. He says SFPD is focused on identifying who those people are and bringing the best cases to the District Attorney’s office for prosecution.

Translation: “Most people are going to get a walk on break-ins.  Especially illegals because were a sanctuary city.”

The residents of San Francisco have been reduce to groveling at criminals not to victimize them.

That is a city that is broken beyond repair.

One of my favorite movies is Dirty Harry.  Under ordinary circumstances, I’d never suggest a Dirty Harry remake or reboot.

However, given this, might I make a suggestion.

Scorpio is the name of a SFPD cop who goes around arresting moms for giving kids straws while Dirty Harry is a anti-hero who hangs out on rooftops with a rifle and shoots people who break-into cars.

  1. It’s a liberal thing, I guess. This happened in a hipster neighborhood in the city of Buffalo several years ago. The break ins got so bad that people left their car doors open with notes on the windows asking burglars not to break anything. Now, Buffalo is still a shithole, but it’s not nearly as bad as San Fran. I think after the bad press, the Buffalo PD eventually did something about it. Not that there aren’t still an abundance of property crimes and violent crimes, but at least the powers that be weren’t on the side of the criminals in this case.

  2. My girlfriend lived in Cleveland while doing an internship. It comes with the territory Imo, you live in a shithole, shithole things are probably going to happen to you or your property or both. That doesn’t make it right, just reality. After the first time her door was pried open and the lock cyclinders pulled out I told her to just keep the doors unlocked and not keep anything in it. And you know what happened? Even with the doors unlocked someone wasn’t smart enough not to break the window on one occasion and pull the other lock cylinder on another…

  3. A couple points:

    First: “That equates to roughly 3,000 fewer car break-ins than this time last year, which is really, really good news for us,” said Chief Scott.

    A 10% reduction, which isn’t necessarily bad, but I wonder how the Streisand Effect will factor in. More specifically, I wonder criminals will read that and think, “Hey! There’s 10% more lucre to be had breaking into cars this year than last year!”

    (Yes, I know that’s not mathematically accurate, but work with me here. We’re talking criminals, not MIT physicists. 🙂 )

    Second: As you said, 3,000 fewer break-ins still leave 27,000 unaffected, which is still a God-awfully high number. Other comparable urban or suburban areas will only see a fraction of that.

    Comedian Lewis Black had a joke several years back about Bill Clinton (actually he had several, but this one is relevant). The joke goes that, while running for President he was asked about education, and replied that as Governor of Arkansas, he took his state from 50th in the nation in education to 49th, and his handlers should have grabbed him and reminded him to keep that under wraps.

    Because let’s face it: going from worst to second-worst is not exactly a big accomplishment, and you just openly admitted that it’s still pretty bad.

    And that’s the best that can be said of SanFran’s car break-ins: It’s bad, but slightly less-bad than it was last year, and they’re not going to seriously address the problem.

    That’s not something I’d be going public with.
