While I am not trying to downplay the hideousness of this event, I don't recall this sort of vilification of the perpetrators by the masses when innocent people were knifed to death on CoV streets.

People like dogs.  They're vulnerable and require human protection.  Haven't you seen John Wick?

I love dogs. I'm just not sure this incident is a worse crime than the ones I referenced above.

“We’re still working with DVBA and various associations on making more consistent coverage, but we’ve had some individual businesses come on board, especially in the last two or three weeks,” said Mirko Filipovic, president of Themis Security Services Ltd. “A good chunk of businesses on the 500-block of Johnson, all the way up to Broad Street, are on board.”

 

Several businesses on Yates Street have also opted for extra security recently, including Bernstein and Gold, Amelia Lee, Hughes and Patagonia.

 

Filopovic added that on Friday his company will also be meeting with a group of Broad Street merchants to see if additional contracts can be signed.

It's atrocious that businesses, paying the highest property taxes in the city, are forced to hire private security, as a result of CoV policies and priorities.

Last night at around 9PM police shut down Pandora in the 600-block. Three people were arrested by ERT, and a BMW sedan towed away. This all happened in about a 15 minute span.

Know it all.

This is super common in San Francisco, who's homeless/crime crisis seems to be the model for Victoria
