Worked hard this week
Yesterday we were a little miffed at the SFPD after we saw a video of cops on bikes rolling through stops signs. But perhaps they had good reason for these Idaho rolls. Maybe they were on their way to catch on of the many, many wanted suspects in San Francisco -- and that we can forgive.

Police Chief Greg Suhr proudly announced today that San Francisco police arrested 72 suspects in a 10-hour sting on Wednesday, with the help of sheriff deputies, state parole agents, and officers with the San Francisco Adult Probation Office.

Of those who were arrested, 17 are on active parole and 50 were booked for felony charges or felony warrants. Another five were arrested on misdemeanor charges or misdemeanor warrants, according to Suhr.
Suhtr explained that this kind of sting operation is going to be a regular thing around San Francisco. "Targeted enforcement such as fugitive apprehension is a key piece of our violence reduction strategy," he said.

SFPD is still lazy. This is fish in barrel when all your suspects are just hanging out on corners within a 1/2 mile square containment zone (aka the loin).
