It's REALLY Hard Not to Blog About This Right Now...
Ok, so I had this great post about this thing with the 11 year old kid stabbed by some homeless mental patient asshat all written up, despite my 2 blogging rules: 1-don't blog when you're mad and 2-don't blog after happy hour and 3 beers with friends, especially when said topic pisses you off bigtime.
Then, of course Movable Type found a way to crash and kill what was an actually well written post. So now we're about to violate rule 3 which is "don't post when your crummy CMS killed your post and you can't recover it from auto-save." And frankly, the topic at hand is such that I can't let it go, and I don't need someone judging me for having a few beers after work. What's being said still matters so spare me the judgment.
All I'll say for now is this: it is inherently f*cked that we have a DA who won't prosecute a case unless it's a slam dunk, lest her "record" not reflect a perfection not attainable in the real world. This allows the habitual misdemeanor criminal to blossom into the felon of today.
It's also inherently f*cked we have a Mayor who could give 2 shits about any of us, but worse, was too busy raising money for negative TV spots to pay attention to his own City. It's a major fail when those stupid cameras, the ONE TIME THEY NEEDED TO WORK ON A BUS, failed in this instance. Why? Because douchebags like our Governor and the Democrats have been killing transit funding for years. Blood is on your hands, Arnold! And the collaborator Democrats, including those from OUR OWN CITY. (Sorry, kids, you don't get a pass anymore).
And it's double f*cked that Muni got looted by the SFPD, and yet, apparently can't police Muni like they say they did (Thanks for nothing, Progressive Supervisors Chiu and Avalos) and in the end, after all the bullshit posturing, a kid almost died on Muni. Oh and hey, thanks for nothing coalition of Reagan and the liberals, who decided that people shouldn't get treatment for a medical illness and instead, we should let the streets be the "hospital."
That is unacceptable and I'm not willing to chalk that up to "shit happens." NO. We are the United States of America, we are San Francisco, we are a civilized society, and I'll be God-damned if kids getting stabbed on Muni, or illegal immigrant gang members killing familes is EVER CONSIDERED AN ACCEPTABLE RISK OF LIVING HERE.
Not cool, and now, I need to cool off. But I dare one person to say the kid had it coming. Because that is mega-f*cked. A lot of people in City Hall are On Notice. And not in the funny snarky way, but in the "you're a pack of jerks and someone got hurt, and this should never have happened" way.
Update: Folks, I owe a bit of an apology to y'all as my poorly worded rant is being taken the wrong way. When I brought up the illegal immigrant issue, it was meant only to say that City Hall is spending a lot of time and money worrying about the "rights" of criminal illegals, instead of worrying about us, the taxpaying law abiding residents (regardless of status). I'm not some right wing douche who believes in deporting everyone with a non-European name. But I AM upset that we have a lot of resources devoted to protecting a few criminals, when we really should be protecting all crime victims in our city, regardless of who they are.
Again, I'm sorry about that, and upon reflection I shouldn't have reacted so negatively. I never wanted this blog to become 100% negative, and yet, I let it happen. So again, I apologize.
