San Franciscans Hire Own Security

| October 25, 2021


Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco is undergoing a perfect storm of crime, thanks to local and state politicians and a shortage of some 400 police officers. 119 shootings and assaults have occurred in the first six months of this year, compared to 58 in the same time frame in 2020. 1000+ car break-ins monthly, and shoplifters go free.

Now this rot has seeped into the suburbs.

San Francisco families no longer ‘feel safe,’ hire private security amid crime spree

Emma Colton

More than 150 families living in San Francisco have hired private security to patrol their streets amid brazen property crimes, with some saying they no longer feel safe in their own neighborhood.

“We don’t feel safe in our neighborhood,” resident Katie Lyons, told CBS SF. “And we have an alarm, we have cameras on our property, but we want the extra security of having someone have eyes on our place.”

Lyons and other families hired patrol special officer Alan Byard to help patrol the streets of the city’s Marina District following repeated instances of car break-ins and home burglaries.

“It’s a nice area down here, people are afraid of what’s been going on,” said Byard. “They want a safe place to raise their kids. In the last year, I’ve had 10 of my clients move out of the city.”

Patrol Special Officers are overseen by the police commission as they work in their capacity as private security, CBS SF reported.

Byard explained that he patrols the Marina District in his car from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. looking for suspicious people. He charges $65 per residence each month.

“Sympathy” can be found after “Schadenfreude” in my dictionary. The city of San Francisco has been sick for years due to progressive politicians and their bizarre policies. Now the rich liberal gated community set is feeling it, and have hired Paul Blart to protect them.

He’s laughing all the way to the bank. Thanks, David.

    Yeah, and you probably voted for the District Attorney who ran on a platform of not prosecuting criminal behavior and attacking the police. Maybe you can get a rebate on your taxes that were slated for law enforcement. Next election, take a look at the guy or gal with the R following their name.

    • David says:

      Another article today says that two of the DA’s assistants have quit the office and joined the recall effort already under way. In a lot of the Blue cities, prosecutors are resigning in droves – low pay, overloaded with cases their bosses aren’t enthused about prosecuting, extremely heavy caseloads requiring all their waking hours. Law enforcement in general feels abandoned by their civilian masters (I remember that feeling serving in the Carter administration. Swore only one of us would go on in his job, and waited to re-up till after the November ’80 election to be sure.)

      Anyone here happen to recall “Kuffs”?

      • Mason says:

        San Fran still has a few Patrol Specials. Privately funded police with full police powers. It’s a rarity to have actual company police anymore, North Caroline and Washington D.C. are the major places you see it. State certified peace officers like any other cop, but only on their contracted property and only on duty.

    • rgr769 says:

      One has to wonder what those San Fransicko voters thought they were going to get. Their elected DA is the son of Weather Underground terrorists; and was raised by Bill Ayers, cuz his daddy is in the federal pen. Remember Ayers is the guy who helped 0bama start his political career. As a dedicated Marxist, Ayers said his only regret is that his crew didn’t set off enough bombs.

  2. SFC D says:

    San Francisco, contrary to what your lord and master Obama said, you built that. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. And while you’re hiring security, it might be a good idea to hire a shit shoveler too. A literal shit shoveler, not a politician.

  3. Deckie says:

    Ahh again with the failed, shithole state. Seriously, what HAVEN’T they managed to fuck up over there?

    You reap what you sow, California.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      But the worst part of it is that the liberal snowflakes migrate to and infest other locations after rendering California unlivable with their shit like they’ve done with Oregon and Washington and they’re doing to Colorado, which further proves to me that liberals are a living parasitism on Society, just like how Biological Parasites move to a different host after doing too much damage to their current one!

      • Deckie says:

        I knew an Apple exec who fled to Texas. I told her she better not drag her parasitic voting habits there and she admitted that was part of her problem — voting for the left and their policies.

        Shame too, many decades ago California was an amazing place to live.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          I remember how nice it was to be in California close to 40 years ago!

          • SFC D says:

            My family fled California in 1970. My dad retired from the AF in 69, we stayed till my sister graduated HS, and we hauled ass for Idaho. No regrets, never looked back.

  4. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    THE ONLY sympathy I have for them is what is found somewhere between “shit and “syphilis” in a dictionary!

  5. ChipNASA says:

    They have alarms and cameras?
    Well then, they’re all set.
    Wait, they have to hire someone else to do the things they fund distasteful or icky??
    I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post…

  6. 5JC says:

    You know with Police Chief William Scott earning $434,613 a year (the highest paid police chief in not just America but the entire world) you would think they would be getting more for their money. $65 a month is a bargain by comparison.

    He makes more than the POTUS.

  7. Does Diane feinstein still carry concealed???

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    OH YEAH, and the wonderful crock of Gun Control Laws that the People’s Republik if Califruitloops has is obviously working wonders at helping make that location a terrific utopia!

  10. Roh-Dog says:

    So… is there a bag limit on the {insert what you’d like}? I would image 1936 Berlin was pretty safe…for some.

    The thing about secret police is that they can (and will) disappear anyone they’d like. Way to go, SF.

  11. Mason says:

    Longtime posters will know where I hail from. Just heard through the grapevine that off duty details for cops in the big city nearby (riots last summer) have gone up. Highest they’ve seen is $380 per hour for an 8-hour shift.

    As you drive out and defund the police the only people that are going to pay the price are the poor. The wealthy and upper middle class will either contract for their own security or move out.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      My security has been contracted out to Gaston Glock, Eugene Stoner and TNVC’s non-GMO, ethically resourced night vision. Just like mom used to make.

      • 5JC says:

        They sound first rate. Have your people get with my people and I’ll set them up with a long range contract.

  12. C2Show says:

    Didnt SF have their own security in 60s-80s. Their own policec constables they paid some neighborhood scrub?

  13. Hack Stone says:

    Now is the time to pour all of your money into Ambassador Worldwide Protection Agency stock.

    • Green Thumb says:

      Word.

      Turd Bolling could be patrolling in a neighborhood near you…

      But those clowns are less than qualified to boot. But then again, maybe they could go dutch on a contract will All-Points Logistics?

      Sky is the limit.

      • 5JC says:

        I heard Bolling got sent to the pokey for playing dress up with his pretend po-po car and trying to write the County Sheriff a pretend ticket. I guess that makes him even more qualified.

        Play dress up as a Navy Seal and you might get your ass kicked. Play dress up as the po-po and well, other things happen.

    • Claw says:

      And never forget that the Ambassador Worldwide Protection Agency is both national and international./s

      Turd Bolling is ready to haul if you make a call.

    Niece and her brood finally left Sodom by the Bay, Gomoruhfornia last summer and beat feet to north Montana.

    Wonder how much pigalousy and difi pay for their security?

    Reap what ye have sown. Still waiting on LeBron to weigh in on all of this crime and what we need to do about it. What’s Heels Up saying?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      “Wonder how much pigalousy and difi pay for their security?”

      I’m sure they stick the taxpayers with that bill!

  15. Devtun says:

    San Fransicko.

  16. STSC(SW/SS) says:

    Time to bring back the mob and just pay protection money. Word would get around and criminals would be stupid to go into those neighborhoods.

      Yeah, because that is how a free society works.

      I wish you duplicitous weasels would admit you want fascism. You advocate for it relentlessly. Built a damn cult around it.

      • SFC D says:

        Interesting take. Especially when it comes from an ANTIFA medic. You remember them, don’t you Commissar? Those guys that use fascist tactics to whose who dare to disagree with them? I never truly understood the term “projection” until I came across you. So thank you for that. Doesn’t make you any less of a fraud.

      • Carlton says:

        Fuck off, Lars.

        – Yeah, because that is how a free society works.

        An unsupported and unqualified statement.

        – I wish you duplicitous weasels would admit you want fascism. You advocate for it relentlessly. Built a damn cult around it.

        Another unsupported and unqualified statement with little to no relevancy. As usual the Commie-czar-ZEK, stamps his feet, bitches and complains and make’s much ado about…less than nothing. FRAUD.

      • Forest Bondurant says:

        Says the guy who gives aid and comfort to a fascist organization, whose members openly destroy property, attack defenseless people, and try to silence anyone who opposes them through violence.

        You advocate for fascism because of the political ideologies you follow.

        You’re just projecting again.

  19. Forest Bondurant says:

    Suck on it, San Francisco. Elections have consequences.

    Someday people in that state will learn the obvious consequences of stupid policies and the politicians who put them in place…or maybe not.

    • Commissar says:

      If California was such a crappy place to live then it would not cost over $1,000,000 for a 2 bedroom in a suburb.

      Most people that complain about how awful California is live discarded or miserable locales that nobody wants to live.

      • rgr769 says:

        But I have seen that one can pitch a tent practically anywhere in San Fransicko. So their housing costs are only what a cheapo tent at Big5 costs.

        • SFC D says:

          Pitch a tent, shit on the sidewalk, now that’s freedom!

          • Carlton says:

            Two other fun facts…

            1. If your tent is stolen, the thief will not be prosecuted

            2. If you defend yourself, your tent, “misgender” the thief or act in a “white privilege” manner, you will be prosecuted

      • Deckie says:

        Like you Lars. You live in fucking OAKLAND for Christ’s sake.

      • Deckie says:

        And there are overpriced apartments and homes in your communist butt Buddy DiBlasio’s NYC. Doesn’t make that any less of a shithole either.

        You really should ask UCB for a refund “commissar.”

      • 5JC says:

        I believe you just defined Oakland.

        However those other locals like Idaho are the fastest growing states due to people fleeing California.

      • Dennis - not chevy says:

        ‘and who says it’s worth, $1,000.000? The tax collector does.

      • Forest Bondurant says:

        So a $1 million dollar 2 bedroom in the suburbs sounds affordable to you, huh?

        Explain how that makes any fucking sense.

        You follow that up with: “Most people that complain about how awful California is live [sic] discarded or miserable locales that nobody wants to live.”

        Really? What “empirical evidence” do you have that supports that assertion?

      • Hatchet says:

        – If California was such a crappy place to live then it would not cost over $1,000,000 for a 2 bedroom in a suburb.

        So what, Lars? The more expensive a place is to live, the better it is?!
        A million for a house? Given to today’s actual real estate market values, THAT’S CHEAP!! Case-in-point: the two bedroom house beside us just sold for over 1.3 million.. Sorry Tovarish, this too expensive for your ANTIFA wallet?

        Most people that complain about how awful California is live discarded or miserable locales that nobody wants to live.

        – Absurd and nonsensical statement. Well Lars, nice to see that you’re still utterly incapable of putting together a simple logical and grammatically correct statement…
        INEPT. FRAUD.

  20. Commissar says:

    The DA is a disaster and will likely lose the recall election.

    He makes progressives look bad because he does not know how to balance ideology with public policy and sound decisions.

    • SFC D says:

      He didn’t get there without the votes of you and your comrades, Commissar. Same as your Governor. I’ll repeat it, one more time. You. Built. That. Enjoy the state you helped create.

    • rgr769 says:

      Oh, I don’t know. He has those Soros-bucks going for him, along with all those mail-in ballots that will be harvested by his supporters.

      Dismaying report from San Fran…

      As SFC D points out, there’s an unfortunate truth to the Thomas Jefferson reference of “The government you elect is the government you deserve”.

    • 5JC says:

      I know you didn’t mean it that way but That might be the funniest thing you ever wrote here.

      Yeah, so if your ideology is bad public policy and unsound decisions… somebody help him out here… you know…. the thing… might be AFU.

      • Forest Bondurant says:

        It’s staggering how disconnected from reality the guy is.

        For people like him, it’s okay for a person to spend $1 million for a 2 bedroom home as long as they are willing to put up with living and working in a shitty environment because of the failed policies that set the conditions for it becoming shitty.

        Apparently, homelessness (and all the things attributed to it) are okay too.

        It’s all perfectly okay though, because shoplifting, public urination/defecation, allowing drug users to discard syringes everywhere, burglary, vehicle theft, vandalism, and all other sorts of “quality of life” crimes should be ignored.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Liberals and liberalism turn places to total SHIT and then the libs migrate like Biological Parasites seeking a new host to go render those places unlivable like they’ve done with CA, WA, OR and CO.

    Having visited the San Fransicko back in the 1980’s, I was shocked to many dozens of tents pitched in Union Square. It is amazing what this city tolerates from the homeless, drug addicted mental cases that now occupy public spaces. I would imagine when they commit crimes short of murder, the city police just don’t bother to investigate or arrest anyone. The DA just chooses not to prosecute them, so what is the point. San Fransicko is proof of the Broken Windows Theory of law enforcement.

    • rgr769 says:

      I should clarify that I have seen the photos of the tent city in Union Square and on the streets. I haven’t been in the “Sicko” for over fifteen years. On my last visit, I saw no homeless camped on the street. Oh there was the occasional looney screaming at the sky, but otherwise it looked like a normal city. One must ask “what happened?” The answer is electing effing Progs to run the city.
