A San Francisco resident
The other night I was reading pink barrio and rosa barrio wrote: It’s good that rape is no longer a concern in San Francisco considering the number of females walking around the city at any hour of the night alone in dark places and unaware of their surroundings, hunched over engaged in their stupidphone addiction.
I live in Upper Market. The other night at a dangerous, busy intersection in Upper Market at around 10:30pm I saw a young woman crossing that intersection without ever looking up. She was on her phone. She proceeded towards The Haight and there’s a dark garden in that area she walked through where a mugger could have been hiding. She didn’t take her eyes off her screen. Her phone was more important to her than her safety.
I thought I would tell you some facts I’ve found out in recent days according to an article I read. The article was from the end of 2014 titled “San Francisco sees sharp rise in property and violent crimes.” The article talked about the big gap between the rich and poor in San Francisco. It pointed out that the increase in crime in the city is due to the tech boom, which is mostly heterosexuals.
In San Francisco, the number of rapes that were reported were up by 47%; the number of aggravated assaults rose by 23%. Robberies are up 18%.
The top 5% have an average income of $350,000. 23% of the population of San Francisco is at poverty levels. They call this a tale of two cities.
The point rosa barrio was making was about rape. I never heard or knew that rape was a major concern in the Gay Mecca San Francisco before the days that tech took over the city with the help of their mayor. Now that the Gay Mecca is quickly disappearing and heterosexuals are flooding the city because of tech, it’s interesting that rape is up by 47%. What does that tell you?
