Two Die In San Francisco Shootings Early Saturday Morning

Two murdered over the weekend in separate shootings. Shootings continue to spiral out of control in San Francisco. As of 6/13, the number of non-fatal shooting victims in SF was up 168%, total shooting victims up 119%. We fear this will get worse as we get deeper into summer.

Homicide detectives were investigating a pair of overnight shootings in San Francisco that claimed the lives of two men, authorities said.

Just in 2020 alone, Cauich was arrested 5 times on burglary-related charges. How many times did Boudin downgrade a felony to a misdemeanor? How many charges did he dismiss? How many days in jail did Cauich serve? Chesa needs to stop deflecting blame. Full statement below.

We send our prayers and support to the family & friends of Firefighter Yock and all of his brothers and sisters at San Francisco Firefighters Local 798. A public servant who was taken from us too soon.

San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) mourns the passing of Firefighter Christopher G. Yock.

With great sadness, we inform you of the death of Firefighter (FF) Christopher Yock. On Tuesday, June 8th, 2021, he passed away after fighting a large fire at the San Francisco International Airport parking structure.

Firefighter Yock has been a valued member of the SFFD since April 17, 2000. He worked as a firefighter most of his career at Station 10, serving the Richmond District of San Francisco, and transferred to Truck 48 as a dedicated member at the San Francisco International Airport in January of 2019.

On June 08, at 630 a.m., Firefighter Yock and numerous fellow firefighters responded to a significant fire at the San Francisco International Airport. Firefighter Yock and fellow firefighters worked hard to attack and extinguish the fire, which occurred on the 4th floor of a parking structure and involved over six vehicles. Unfortunately, after returning home from the incident, he suffered a medical emergency and passed away.

San Francisco's Surge in Property Crime

Chesa Boudin has been able to say “crime is down” largely because the volume of thefts plummeted during the pandemic. The year-to-date stats for crime narrows significantly as SF opens up. The catch-and-release policy for property crimes needs to end.

EXCLUSIVE: SF mom robbed at gunpoint in own garage with husband asleep, kids in car

Having $400 stolen is one thing. The fear and trauma these victims will have to live with are quite another. Since reopening SF, the rate of robberies and thefts is increasing rapidly. Total crime compared to last year down only 8.8% vs. 23%.

'I STARTED SHAKING': They had just pulled into their driveway and her husband was asleep in the passenger seat, kids were in the back. When she walked to the trunk, a young man wearing a surgical mask walked into her garage and pointed a gun at her face.

UPDATE: Massive San Francisco Police Drug Bust in Oakland Nets Over 16 Pounds of Fentanyl

No doubt about it, SFPD officers are doing our part to reduce the supply of fentanyl on our streets. Through may we’ve made 248 dealer-related arrests and seized over 17 lbs of fentanyl, 10 lbs of meth, and 7 lbs of heroin. Now we must keep the dealers in jail longer than a day.

A drug bust conducted by San Francisco narcotics officers in Oakland last week netted nearly 30 pounds of drugs including over 16 pounds of the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl, according to new details released by authorities Tuesday.

Feds announce largest fentanyl seizure ever in Northern District of California

A huge bust estimated at 9.5 million lethal doses. Thankfully, these defendants will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s office. No restorative justice for these guys.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California announced Tuesday what it described as the largest federal seizure of fentanyl -- more than 40 pounds -- in the history of the district.

San Francisco homeless man's assault on cop shows dangers of police staff shortages, progressive agenda: union

"There is really no supervision. There is no follow-up. There is no accountability." So, what will happen with repeat-offender Contreras? Chesa Boudin has a horrible record of prosecuting those who assault officers.

Severe staffing shortages at the San Francisco Police Department, paired with the local prosecutor's "criminal-first agenda," is creating a dangerous situation on city streets headed into the summer months, union president Tony Montoya said.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Sergeant Dies After Desert Chase and Shootout

Sgt. Dominic Vaca, a 17-year veteran of the San Bernadino County Sheriff’s Office was gunned down, murdered, while trying to make a traffic stop. This happens far too often. Our thoughts are with Sgt. Vaca’s family, and everyone at SEBA and San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

A San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputy passed away in the hospital Monday night after being shot following an attempted traffic stop and pursuit in the desert community of Yucca Valley. The suspect was shot and killed by responding deputies.

Prosecutors sue over California prison good conduct rules

California DAs who stand up for crime victims and safe communities sued the state to block the secretive program that would allow 76,000 inmates (63,000 violent offenders) to be released from prison early. Chesa Boudin was not one of them. But then again, he’s told us violent offenders don’t re-offend.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Three-quarters of California’s district attorneys sued the state Wednesday in an attempt to block emergency rules that expand good conduct credits and could eventually bring earlier releases for tens of thousands of inmates.

Chesa Boudin gave a shameless interview where he blamed everyone but himself for SF's problems.

Sorry Chesa, if you think blaming police officers & throwing stats to misdirect attention is going to cut it, you’re wrong. SF residents are demanding more. They want actual solutions. You’ve offered none. And you still accept zero responsibility

Check out our Twitter thread highlighting a few things he left out.https://twitter.com/SanFranciscoPOA/status/1396953337438736386

Boudin Drops Charges on Attacker of 75-Yr-Old Woman

Charges dropped by Boudin. Again. Listen to the good Samaritan who helped the 75-yr-old woman who was being beaten and drug by the hair. Listen to the victim. The outrage and disbelief is real. Video footage. Victim and witness participation. But no “DNA evidence” so another violent suspect goes free. Are you seeing the pattern yet? Dion Lim reports.

I would like to see the SFPOA issue a statement denouncing the violence on our nation’s Capitol that resulted in the death of an officer. I would also like to see the SFPOA condemn the president who prompted this violence.

Police officers all over are under attack. The DSOCs are proud of their achievements. When the thin blue line is destroyed, who will help you when the baddies take over? Take a good look when you are out on your own. You need the cops whether you like it or not.

Portland Police Officer says goodbye EDITOR'S PICK A Final Letter From A Cop Who’s Walking Out The Door SEP 1, 2020 @ 8:03AM Portland Police "Now it’s time …. to say goodbye….to all the lunacy! (Mickey Mouse Club for those who didn’t pick up on it). After 26.5 years of blood, sweat, and tears it all comes to an inspirational end. I reflect back on my first night out of the advanced academy (12/19/94) and remember Dave Howe getting shot 4 times by a cowardly gangster hiding under a bed at some apartments at 122/Glisan. I got the joy of telling his wife what happened when she arrived at the hospital that night. Today, that same thug would be hailed a hero or martyr. After I returned to work from Admin. Leave, I was partnered with an officer that should never have been hired (but they were desperate for cops) and unbeknownst to me, Brad decided to keep a bunch of dope we discovered on a traffic stop. I had zero reluctance testifying in Grand Jury against him, giving him no pass although an argument could have been made for the lack of help he had received following an officer-involved shooting when the wife of the man who had tried killing him with a hatchet began stalking Brad at home and work. Brad was responsible and should and was held accountable. 1999 was a hoot too. I was nearly killed by a drunk driver, got attacked by two drunk men at Food for Less at 82/Powell celebrating the new year, and was drug off my horse when I attempted an arrest of a crack dealer in Old Town and the driver drove away with my arm trapped in the car. Accountability being at an all-time high, I saw the Duii get no time; one of the two men (the other testified against me and got off scot-free because I could not identify him) at Food for Less get a 15-day sentence, served on weekends (even though this was his second attack on police); and the crack dealer gets 3 days in jail, which was less than the suspension I got for bad language and preventing her escaping while handcuffed later. This was only the 12th time I had been assaulted in my first five years. For the next 21 years, I spent time with victims of criminal acts, usually right after they happened when emotions were high. I also spent time patrolling the streets preventing crime and the fear of crime through the best m**hods. See a crime, arrest a criminal. See a person about to commit a crime, prevent the crime. See a picture from a wanted poster, arrest the wanted person. See a street-level drug deal, arrest both parties. Ask anyone who works in the area of a drug house, it has a positive affect. I’ve seen numerous officers held accountable through discipline, firing, and jail. I’ve seen an appalling number of live time criminals continue to prey on the poor, weak, elderly, and young and because they are rarely ever held accountable, continue with their wicked ways. There is no lack of excuse-makers for them. “Nobody ever gave them a chance” is one of my favorites. Of course, since I have a job, it’s because of all my theoretical privilege and totally disregards the fact that I was once homeless with numerous siblings and a single mother who worked 2 jobs in high school (51 hours/week) and managed to graduate. Don’t you hate when the facts don’t fit the narrative?? Things got really exciting when a certain flu came into the country. Apocalyptic times ahead. Leaders blamed each other for the future of countless deaths. Mistakes were made by all, but this was new territory and nobody was prepared for what flu into the country. Most made the best decisions they could, while others took the best advantage of the uncertain times they could for both profit and political gains. First responders were suddenly heroes again. I watched the military jets fly over the city, from empty emergency room to empty emergency room, to honor health care workers. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any more exciting, the nation watched in disgust and horror as George Floyd died in police custody, all caught on film. The city this tragedy happened in didn’t matter, because it was not the fault of all cops. Systemic racism. The new buzz word to accompany de-escalation and equity. Now, since so many officers had chosen to step in harm's way to be on the front lines in the fight against crime in ALL neighborhoods, we were all labeled racists. After all, we were the enforcers of laws set up by the citizens of our country, states, and cities. Nobody called lawmakers systemic racists. What is really impressive is all the armchair experts on the subject. Don’t dare bring up statistical data regarding numbers of homicides or other criminal activity, because emotion reigns, and “I feel like that just can’t be true” is the response. I’ve yet to see charges of systemic racism against judges who sentenced criminals to prison, yet they are part of the same system. Everyone has jumped on board with the condemnation of police which is great because we definitely need more people to demonize officers risking their very lives for strangers. I hope everyone got to see the extremely brave Quentin Tarantino’s speech about how he’s “not going to stand by while these murders are out here.” Wouldn’t it be grand to see him take the stance every Monday morning in Chicago following another appalling weekend of homicides against Blacks? I watched in sadness at the first major press conference here in Portland following the first riot and our Portland Fire Chief Boone described how she lived in fear that she would be shot in the back (by the police) every time she walked across the park to city hall (youtube video available). I did some research and couldn’t find a single incident of this ever happening to a fire chief or a Black female here in Portland, so clearly the narrative was more important than the facts. Things ring equally absent of fact when I witness the police being blamed for the deaths of Travon Martin (Hispanic neighborhood watch member), Sandra Bland’s jail su***de, and Ahmad Arbery’s death at the hands of two civilians whose murals are all alongside of other high profile deaths. It’s been great being the scapegoat for all these high profile deaths. I’m probably one of the few Americans who actually bothered to read the very lengthy DOJ findings on the Michael Brown shooting that inspired death and destruction. One of the early complaints was about how long Brown’s body was in the street, how many people knew the police had to take cover during two more subsequent shootings at the scene? It seems like the only thing people agree on is that these deaths are tragic. I am of course speaking about us people who recognize the sanctity of human life. I am not talking about those who laugh on youtube videos following death like we just witness last Saturday. I have reserved my biggest congratulations for the Anarchists who, in a genius public relations scheme, skillfully changed their name to Antifa. Who doesn’t hate fascists? Wonderful! I remember working Occupy Portland when an Anarchist actually complained to me about the tweakers stealing all of their stuff while the Anarchists were marching through downtown. I’m impressed with a group of people who mask up (pre-Covid), dress in helmets and armor, arm themselves with weapons, and attack free speech. The most incredibly brave pack of hyenas in nature. I think police departments should hire the Anarchist P.R. firm so we can come up with a name that city hall can get behind. I was so proud to watch Commissioner Hardesty chant F the police on videos. Too bad we don’t have a cool sounding social just warrior name as they do. This goes hand in hand with the constant media characterization of “peaceful” or “mostly peaceful” protests. Has to be peaceful because the first amendment to the constitution only guarantees “peaceful assembly.” As long as it is characterized as peaceful, they are not infringing on other people’s rights to things such as free travel. No civil rights violations going on here, that only applies to the police. There is zero doubt among the officers of the Portland Police that our new District Attorney feels the same way. Impressive campaign financing and agenda-driven law enforcement will certainly lead to justice for all. Riiiiiiighttttt. I recall beaming with pride as Mayor Wheeler traded barbs with President Trump, even at one point telling the President to not tell him how to do his job. Wow, coming from the guy who has been telling the police to do their job. No police experience needed, but definitely better at it! I recall that after Commissioner Hardesty called the officers of the Portland Police Bureau a bunch of thugs, Mayor Wheeler rushed to our defense and criticized the President for building the wall along the southern border. I marveled at the walls being constructed around the buildings downtown, including City Hall. Mirroring the Mayor’s message to the President during yesterday’s press conference, “wouldn’t it be great if the Mayor stood with the police against the blatant haters just down the hall from him?” Commissioner U. has done nothing but stick up for “Antifa” in every public statement about the rioting. Every wonder why so many people died during Hurricane Katrina? Look no further than what has happened here in Portland for the last 100 days. “The water will subside” strategy is working great!!!! Let’s get rid of all of the helicopters and boats to rescue people by defunding the purchases and laying off the pilots and boat captains. Instead, we’ll send out an army of paddleboarders. Of course, we won’t have anyone trained on paddleboarding or even have purchased any paddleboards to be used to rescue all those who need help, but at least it’s better that they die by drowning, starvation, and disease than have to breathe another breath of fossil fuel. Brothers and sisters, there is a dark storm on the horizon. It is darker and more ominous than anything any of us have ever seen before. Prepare! The only one that is going to save you is the one next to you. 50 gone in the month of August, the line just got thinner. Re-imagine there being very few left. Don’t let the fools divide you! They are already trying. We as a police department have come so far and I would gladly have put myself in peril for any one of you, regardless of all the things they are trying to divide us (s*x, color, religion, orientation). It takes a lot of guts to put on a badge in Portland, It takes a lot of guts to stand up for what is right, but IT IS RIGHT. We’ve seen the low quality of brainpower it takes to scream like spoiled brats while packs behind a mask. Now that they’ve canceled COPS and LIVE PD, most of the public won’t know us like before. It is up to us to tell the citizens that mob rule does not get to decide policy and law, but democracy must. I appreciate all the well wishes. I love you all and I pray the Lord watches over each and every one of you!"
