Excuse me but I’m a about to cuss

What the fuck is happening to my neighborhood. Daily I am hearing horror stories of muggings, murders, and stabbing. This infuriates me. Thankfully since I behave like an old man and not usually out of the house past 9pm , I am home when most of this violent crimes occur.  To all you gang bangers and low lifes preying on people : I am going to start carrying a pistol, mace, an machete m NUNCHUCKS and a whistle!

San Francisco — A man was stabbed and seriously wounded while walking home in San Francisco’s Mission District early today, and another man was shot to death on a nearby street corner a half hour later, police said.

Officers had no evidence that the two attacks were related, said Sgt. Mike Andraychak, a police spokesman. He said the police Gang Task Force was investigating both incidents.

The stabbing was reported about 1:50 a.m. near 16th and Mission streets. The victim, a 28-year-old San Francisco man, had just left a bar and was walking home when four men in their early 20s confronted him, then stabbed him repeatedly and ran off, Andraychak said.

He said the victim told police in the hospital that the attackers were gang members who apparently mistook him for a member of a rival gang.

About 2:20 a.m., a 24-year-old man was shot near the corner of 17th and Mission, Andraychak said. He was pronounced dead in the hospital at 4 a.m.

Witnesses saw a black SUV-type vehicle leaving the scene after the shooting, Andraychak said. He said police had no information about the reasons for the shooting and have made no arrests in either case.

Mission Shooting: Gang Shoot Non-Gang Member in the Back

by Accidental Bear

If it were up to me I’d be throwing the death penalty at dumb-asses like this! ( not kidding). Put yourself in the victims shoes…. got your butt out of bed at the ass crack of dawn, walking to work ( still dreaming of bed) , and out of  nowhere shot in the back. The fact that now you have the day off doesn’t balance things out. <extra sad face , because this is blocks from my house>

sfpd_arrestcuffs.jpgshooting Monday morning in San Francisco’s Mission District appears to have been gang-related, police said Tuesday.

The victim was on his way to work at about 7:30 a.m. when two suspects drove up to him near the corner of 17th and Mission streets and began “throwing gang signs,” police said.

The victim, who is not believed to be a gang member, was shot in the back by one of the suspects before the vehicle took off, according to police. The man was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries not believed to be life threatening.

David Salgado and Giovanni Sandoval, both 19-year-old San Mateo County residents, were arrested after the shooting, police said.

Officers used a description of the assailants to find and arrest the two men, according to police. A gun was allegedly recovered from their vehicle.

The pair was charged with attempted homicide, carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a loaded weapon, and participation in a criminal street gang.

They remained in custody Tuesday night.
