It’s because they lowered the penalty for theft and shit in SF like 2 years ago, since then they’ve had a major epidemic of people breaking into cars, it’s off the fucking charts and they won’t say anything about it.

Those sf fucks just keep pretending they live in a perfect world.

Trust me, you’re right, FUCK sf. Justice for Kate!!

Do you have any more information about the penalty being lowered?

Yes http://archive.is/KEaWR

Prop. 47 was a statewide initiative passed in November that reduced many nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors

It was prop 47 that did it, which is what I was referring to, but apparently only SF is being hit really hard (maybe because degenerates like to congregate there? Who woulda thunk?)

After Prop. 47 was passed by voters, and 2,700 inmates were released from California’s prisons when their felonies for property and drug crimes were reduced to misdemeanors, auto burglaries shot up in San Francisco.

And this one https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/04/san-francisco-crime-policy/479880/

The epidemic has been getting worse for years. Back in 2006, when there were 10,000 fewer break-ins per year, police, prosecutors, and then-Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office felt that 41 such burglaries a day was enough to justify a crackdown.

Locals arguably have it even worse. They can’t park at night without worrying that their windows will be busted a second or third or fourth time. For the very rich, the repair job is pocket change. For everyone else, it’s a significant surprise expense.

The police particularly dislike Proposition 47, “a ballot initiative passed into law in November 2014 that reduced six nonviolent felonies to misdemeanors.” But that was a statewide measure, while the smash-and-grab epidemic is local and predates 2015. What’s more, Gascón says that he still charges car break-ins as felonies.

edit: TBH I think it's a mix of Prop 47 and the people who live here.

Prop 47 is the result of people voting here who are sympathetic to criminals who did "minor crimes" (bleeding heart liberals and relatives that want their family members out), and the break ins are the result of criminals who either come here or commit crime here because the people around them are sympathetic to them.

It really comes down to sociology, mainly sociology 101 ( I took sociology in college as a required class for GE and I took it from some UC Berkeley faggot professor, at the time I thought it was really interesting so I focused an got an A, I had no idea down the line it would help me in fighting their BS) which says that when people are poor they commit more crime to get "what they need", so people assume that since people are poor they will commit crimes (crimes of necessity) and they vote to lower the penalty while at the same time fostering a society that allows it because they equate those types of crimes to poor people and poor people are just good people that need to help themselves (the bitch of it is, the people who commit crimes aren't usually the "poor people" they are taught about in sociology)

Making sociology a required class for undergrads is a great way to indoctrinate the masses before they get older and wise up.

Never leave anything in plain view in a car, no matter where you go. Put it in the trunk, glove box, or take it with you.

[–] MaxVieuxlieu [S] 0 points (+0|-0)  ago 

I normally wouldn’t. It was a rental car with no trunk and I figured 10pm in a well travelled, well lit place would be ok.

I know someone who lives in Oakland. They purposefully leave their car looking like shit (bad paint, dents) even though it's mechanically sound. Also they leave a newspaper on the driver seat. Apparently the newspaper being there let's the bums know that your cool with the or some code bullshit like that.

I'd have to check with him but over the last 7 or so years his car has only been broken into a couple times.

Total shithole.

That's what I hate most about San Francisco- it isn't the filth, the disease, homeless or the crime, it's the high and mighty attitude that other places are beneath them and everyone should shutup because they have all the answers. It's infuriating.

I wouldn't be surprised if people go vigilante in that place. The police don't do dick and I know of at least one person that was actively hiding criminals from law enforcement.

[–] CowWithBeef 5 points (+5|-0)  ago 

Because it's someone poor stealing from someone richer, they don't really see it as a crime and do nothing to prevent it. The only crime they really enforce is trying to build a house. Fuck you, no new housing. Poor people can't afford your new house so you can't build it unless you make it so poor people can afford to live there.

Yeah, you need to Uber in any West Coast major city.

I live close to SF and I dread going into work and walking by drug deals and people shooting up heroin in the sub-ways. It's a sad place. Albeit, the general area is nice and education is good. It's sad that they can't clean up the city. And as other noted -- that they can't build additional housing (or improve public transportation). I really don't know what can change the city at this point...but I hope it changes

I'm sorry to hear about that. San Francisco can be really sketchy. It is a really cool place to visit (assuming that doesn't happen to you), but is largely just an extremely expensive shithole.

Food is pretty excellent, at least.

$2k per month for a one bedroom apartment on the East Bay and all my neighbors are Asian or southern Asian.

I went to a Discord dinner meet up in SF last year and someone smashed 2 of my windows to steal my gym bag. It cost me a couple hundred bucks to fix my car. This place sucks.

Was the food good?

Meh. It was all right. They added a hidden 4% charge on the menu for the healthcare mandate. On the bill it ended up being 5%.
