San Francisco Police Try to Head Off Mission District Gang War
September 22, 2009
San Francisco police redoubled enforcement efforts in the Mission District on Monday after a pair of shootings on the same street over the weekend left three men dead, including a Norteño gang member who had been repeatedly cited for violating the city's gang injunction.

"The whole thing has been gang-related violence," said police Capt. Steve Tacchini, commander of the Mission Station. "We've increased the presence there - it's kind of a hot spot already.

Over the past 39-years, I have witnessed the dwindling-down of the San Francico Police Force in the Mission District. I don't expect them to improve much and then blame it on the economy/budget, etc. Now, they are basically blaming their short-comings on being over-powered by Street Gangs from out of Mexico.
