  • Friends don't let wanted friends go to jail because of unnecessary seatbelt violations.
1. Buckle up, especially while being driven around by a wanted man -- for his sake.

On Tuesday near McAllister and Larkin streets, two officers were

patrolling when they saw a passenger in a car wearing no seat belt. They

stopped the car and began to question its occupants, only to learn that

the driver was wanted for arrest on drug charges. The cops took the

driver to jail, and issued the passenger a ticket for not wearing her

seat belt.

2. If you are driving drunk, if you must rear-end someone, rear end a civilian instead of a cop.

Last Thursday night, a sergeant was sitting in her cop car on

Fillmore and Clay when, out of nowhere, another car rear-ended her. Two

more cops came to the scene and questioned the driver, who claimed to

have only had two drinks that night. The driver then failed a couple of

sobriety tests spectacularly, and was arrested for DUI. The sergeant was

not seriously injured.

3. While wasted, only ring doorbells of people you know.

On Thursday morning around 1:15, two officers were called to the intersection of Bay and Laguna streets, where some guy was apparently ringing everybody's doorbells. They found the guy stumbling around, and promptly arrested him for public drunkenness.

  • 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.'"
