Steve HymanRespectfully disagree. It all depends upon the applicant. Seeing the issue from both sides can be helpful and it won't necessarily end up being a rapist or drug dealer which is the fear mongering you are attempting to put forth.22 hours ago · 1
Is this the solution? No jail time for criminal offenses? Closing one of the county jails? Take a look at the streets of San Francisco, check out the extremely high property crime rate & the increased robbery and homicide rate, then offer your thoughts. ... See moreSee less
Victor TiscorniaThe City was a much nicer place to visit when Frank Jordan was mayor. Seemed to be more respect for law and order then.5 days ago · 12
Mike JonesCriminals should be punished, not rewarded. The honest law-abiding citizens of San Francisco are the ones that will suffer the consequences. Break in my house (don’t go to jail), steal my car (don’t go to jail), steal from the same store repeatedly (don’t go to jail). They are allowing San Francisco to turn into a cesspool and that’s a shame.5 days ago · 13

Rich CibottiWhy don't we "divert" some of the $245.8 million dollars for the Office of Homelessness to help with this. Or maybe $12 million from the Mayors Office that's slated for homeless programs. Hell while we're at it why not spend the $42 million for juvenile probation (of 52 custodies) on this issue.5 days ago · 9
Matt RodgersCarrots are great... but only if there's a stick somewhere in the mix. Some folks just need to find out the hard way there's some consequence for their actions. If there's never a stick, some will never learn.5 days ago · 4

EB TwangThe funny (sad/peculiar funny, not hahaha funny) is that they think they're the first people to come up with these ideas. It's been done before, folks. In a few years, we'll be back to tough-on-crime initiatives and candidates.

Patrick WickerI feel for you guys. If you don't get them, it's a useful tool still being denied. Even if you do get them, the idiots in the public and the media will find a way to bitch about how and when they are used. You're in a no-win situation.5 days ago · 3

Arthur AntoniottiThe sad part about this is that tasers are used in the City by other agencies. They're not banned in SF it's just that SFPD isn't authorized to use them. You know, SFPD, you might have heard of them, they're the agency most likely to show up to a call.4 days ago · 1

Sue CanaanAnyone remember the 5150 that broke into an antique store in Japan town, stole a very sharp Samurai sword & made his way down to Polk St? Swinging it at everyone he crossed paths with, laughing like loon, cutting an officer's uniform while attempting to stab him. Officers emptied 4-5 cans of mace directly in his face with absolutely no effect.
Or how many times have you been called to a run (more times than I can count) where the naked, armed, drug induced suspect is fighting imaginary foes? Mace has no effect whatsoever. At least not on the suspect.
As progressive as SF tries to be they are years behind other agencies in equipment and they pay the price with unnecessary injuries & law suits. Body cams & stun guns should be mandatory issued equipment. But with past experience in SFPD, ( remember going from 6 shot revolvers to semi's) if approved, they will make the officers pay out of pocket to carry. Good luck!3 days ago · 1
