Muni Protects Cable Car Cash While T-Third Trash Busts Heads

Posted By on Tue, Dec 4, 2007 at 9:04 AM


So SFGate has a story today on Muni's plans to add plainclothes security guards to cable cars:

The Municipal Transportation Agency, which oversees Muni, has included the "cable car observers" program in a proposed contract for agencywide private security guard services. It calls for six to eight unarmed security guards in plainclothes to work part time on the cable car detail. ... Their primary function "is to be alert for any fare-handling violations ... They will be rotated among various shifts to avoid detection by the cable car conductors and gripmen.

Which is pretty much racist. Why they gotta protect all the white folk in North Beach, when the real security situation lies in their newest Ghetto Express, the T-Third? The first time we rode that hell-train, this black chick started beating her two-year-old and calling him an "asshole motherfucker son of a bitch." No one said shit until another black chick stepped in and tried to reason with the candidate for Worst Mom in San Francisco.

Then the two black chicks got in a fight, the train stopped, and sat there while the two chicks fought until the cops came. "You don't tell me how to raise my kid! Fuck you, bitch! I will K-O you! I will K-O you!"

"Nah, fuck you! That ain't right! That ain't right what you doin!"

And on and on. ...

Give the T-Third some MUNI marshals, mayn! We're tired of this shit! — David Downs

  • 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.'"
