List: Signs you are a bad cop 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010

The San Francisco Police Department is reviewing the backgrounds of police officers to see whether they have problems that would prevent them from testifying in cases. If you are a cop in San Francisco, here are some potential issues that might be problematic.

• You abuse the "free doughnut" privilege

• You've used the "I meant to fire my Taser" excuse a dozen times already

• Dirty Harry is your professional role model

• You think Dan White got a raw deal

• Your hobbies include setting things that belong to your ex-wife on fire

• You commit more crimes than you stop

• You use the evidence room for recreational purposes

• Your nickname is "Shooter"

• You consistently refuse to be the Gavin's wingman when you're on mayoral security detail

• You've illegally rigged the electrical box on your growhouse

  • 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.'"
