Psst to Glen Park Drivers! Those Aren't Real Pedestrians, It's a Police Sting!

Don't be fooled!

Don't say the Snitch never makes good on its name. Here's the inside scoop: If you're driving around in Glen Park on Wednesday morning, be warned. From 7 a.m. to noon, those pedestrians jumping out in the cross walks in front of oncoming traffic are not merely innocent commuters late for work. They are not just too busy listening to their iPods to notice cars coming at them.

They are police officers hoping you'll fail to yield to them just so they can slap you with a fat ticket. They are tenacious and mean business. 

The sting operation was advertised in the Ingleside police station daily report on Tuesday, which announced with great cheer: "The results in tomorrow's newsletter!" Just like your high school health teacher warned, don't be a statistic. Especially one in the Ingleside newsletter. Yield and smile. Make a grandiose hand gesture indicating "You first, man" for extra points.  

The locations for the trap are:

  • Bosworth and Chilton
  • Bosworth and the SB280 on-ramp
  • Joost and Brompton
  • Joost and Monterey
  • Geneva and London

  • 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.'"
