The Ingleside Police Station Newsletter contained this interesting piece of information yesterday:

0:11 pm Arleta and San Bruno Avenues

Officer Gibbs conducted a surveillance for a known robbery suspect (occurred 2/25). He saw the man and asked for assistance. Sergeant Heidohrn and posse arrested the man nearby. The perpetrator, a 34 year old San Francisco man, was charged with robbery, vehicle tampering (another case), and violation of parole.

A posse? First off, how does one go about rounding up a posse? Was there a group of rascally, but ultimately noble, ne'er-do-wells whittling and spitting in the dirt outside the nearby saloon? How many people consitute a posse? Can women be in a posse? How does one politely decline a police officer's offer to join a posse without looking like a total wuss? How often does the SFPD employ posses in the apprehension of criminals? And, most importantly, how do I get into a posse? -Andy Wright

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
