Dwindling posts

Ecclesiastes tells us there is nothing new under the sun, and while I normally avoid Christian mythology, I see no lies in that line. When I started this blog in November, I had so much to say. Ideas for blog posts were like a team of Athenas attempting to escape from Zeus’ skull all atContinue reading “Dwindling posts”

My Twitter muzzle

I don’t think I’ve referenced this here yet, but for approximately a month Twitter has censored search results for any tweets containing this blog’s url, as well as any of my tweets containing a hashtag. Soon after discovering this, I tweeted Support about the url and hashtag searches separately and filled out a couple ofContinue reading “My Twitter muzzle”

MISSING PERSONS: Former SFPD Officer Jason Lai and Lieutenant Curtis Liu

  Former SFPD Officer Jason Lai and Lieutenant Curtis Liu were partners in crime at SFPD’s already-scandal-ridden Taraval Station, Lai serving directly under Liu. In September 2015, SFPD investigated Lai for sexual assault: According to the warrant, the pair then went to the woman’s bedroom, where she says they had sex despite her saying: “noContinue reading “MISSING PERSONS: Former SFPD Officer Jason Lai and Lieutenant Curtis Liu”

SFPD’s performed reform

The Golden State Warriors’ hire of former SFPD Chief Greg Suhr as security consultant created work for many manufactured-outrage activists this past week, but couldn’t have been more business as usual. Team owner Joe Lacob is a Sand Hill Road venture capitalist and both Sand Hill Road and the Silicon Valley it funds have long beenContinue reading “SFPD’s performed reform”

Suzy Loftus curiously quits

“The face of police reform” isn’t long for the San Francisco Police Commission as its president Suzy Loftus resigned this week to join the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department as assistant legal counsel. It’s a curious move for a couple of reasons. First, Loftus is apparently trading two high-profile positions, San Francisco Police Commission president andContinue reading “Suzy Loftus curiously quits”

The siren song of equality

Freedom. Equality. On the surface, they seem interchangeable, but in practice the two words couldn’t be farther apart. Freedom is self explanatory; acting and living without restraint or oppression. Equality is trickier, however. Equality comes with all sorts of terms and conditions. You can’t be equal by yourself; what’s the point? Reaching a state ofContinue reading “The siren song of equality”

SFPD fighting hate with hate?

San Francisco officials this week joined politicians nationwide in discovering widespread, heretofore undetectable racism and hate crimes. Ed Lee decreed San Francisco a hate-free city by saying…words: We want to remain an open, welcome city. And some people may not feel that unless we enforce the very laws we put on the books that sayContinue reading “SFPD fighting hate with hate?”

Translating SFPD’s “high alert”: an excuse to escalate and a distraction from ongoing issues

As they’ve done in the past, SFPD is using the shootings of police officers across the country as excuse for a “high alert,” which is just euphemism for playing victims, excusing in advance any act of terror at their hands and distracting from any of their ongoing scandals. Local media has published story after storyContinue reading “Translating SFPD’s “high alert”: an excuse to escalate and a distraction from ongoing issues”

The illogical Office of Public Advocate

Prop H, allowing for the creation of an Office of Public Advocate in San Francisco, appears headed for defeat. Thankfully. In theory, the Public Advocate is a fair-play czar of sorts. They field and investigate citizen/whistleblower complaints concerning City services and programs, monitor for cronyism/wasteful spending and appoint a Director of the Office of CitizenContinue reading “The illogical Office of Public Advocate”
