City Supervisor Spots Stash of Broken Booze Bottles and Needles in Dolores Park

No, this isn't an image of the Tenderloin. Officials spotted this disturbing stash of needles and broken glass in the children's play area over at Dolores Park earlier this week — and they're not thrilled about it. 

Supervisor Scott Wiener, who posted the image on his Instagram account with the hastag #sociopathic, says he was not super surprised to see this — but still pretty pissed off about it. 

"It's really frustrating," he tells SF Weekly. "We've had big spectacular vandalism in the construction site with glass in the sand, but it's turning into an almost nightly thing where something happens in the park."

Wiener, who represents the Castro District, decided that posting this image wasn't really going to suffice; he's now working with Rec and Park to ramp up security in Dolores Park to keep the place free of nefarious activity. 

So expect to see more cops milling around the area.

  • 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.'"
