At Third & Palou, the main intersection in Hunters Point, San Francisco
Editor’s note: Here’s a slice of life in our neighborhood, right across the street from the headquarters of the SF Bay View, where we live and work. The photo was taken there; look at the love that the cops want to stomp out. Willie Ratcliff witnessed a similar incident recently, drew a crowd as he lectured the cops, and he and the crowd ran ‘em off. But that’s not enough. Greg Suhr, the worst precinct captain we ever had, is now chief of police. We need a plan.
