Police Activity Below My Window

February 8, 2020

February 6, 2020: Flurry of cops around my building here in the Castro. Don’t know what it was about, but there was a surprising number of skateboarders all dressed in black pants and hoodies, racing down the sidewalk a few minutes earlier, when I was outside. I had to jump away to keep from getting hit. When I returned to my apartment, I heard a continuous stream of skateboarders, then two young ladies screeching in the middle of the street, around the streetcar island. I saw a man filming them with his smartphone, and they kept moving away from him, threatening him all the while, sometimes punching him. Upon one punch, his smartphone was knocked out of his hand, but he quickly retrieved it. As I watched from my window, he called the cops and very quickly, they showed up…then a whole passel of ’em showed up. The two ladies ran down the street, but they got arrested anyway. And that’s all I know.
