Mystery Feces Spur Police Call

Sooner or later every cop has to take that call. You think about it when you button up the uniform in the morning and when you shut off the light at night. But it's inevitable. And, yesterday, it came for the Ingleside Station: The dreaded feces-related vandalism report.

At 8:30 a.m. sharp, a woman called in from the 300 block of Harkness Avenue in Visitacion Valley claiming "an unknown person threw feces on the windshield of her vehicle when it was parked and unattended."

Sadly, the chances of flushing out the feces-thrower appear to be crappy. When SF Weekly called the station house to question what manner of feces were deposited on the victim's windshield we were told that information was not available. When we asked whether it was human feces or dog feces, the response was, "How can you tell human feces and dog feces apart?"

Apparently they don't teach that course at the Police Academy anymore.

  • 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.'"
