Sex Offender Found Shirtless at Bernal Heights Elementary School

State law says registered sex offenders cannot live near a school, playground, or other places where kids gather.

But apparently state law doesn't prohibit a sex offender from being shirtless around school campuses.

A teacher from Paul Revere Elementary School, located at 555 Tompkins Ave., called police to report a shirtless man had been spotted on campus, disrupting school at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday. When police arrived, they met with the school officials who told them that the same man had been at the school the day before acting "erratically" and disrupting the children in the school yard.

When police did a computer search, they found the man was a registered

sex offender. The officers contacted the sex crimes unit, which later

determined that the shirtless man had not violated any laws. He was slapped on

the hand and told to go home.

Let's just hope his home is more than 2,000 feet from the school.

  • 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.'"
