These are excerpts from the San Francisco Police Department's daily log of activities. Incidents are listed by police precincts and the neighborhoods they patrol.
Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle
Knock out posse: Patrol officers near the Western Addition housing projects on Ellis and Pierce streets at 11:46 a.m. Sept. 1 noticed a carload of gang members cruising the neighborhood. They recognized the driver as a young man who didn’t have a driver’s license, and made a traffic stop on the vehicle.
All five occupants were known gang members who had recently been evicted from MLK/Marcus Garvey Housing. Four of the offenders had “stay away” court orders which prohibited them from being in the area.
Four of the five suspects were taken into custody and booked for violating their court orders, effectively ruining any plans they might have had to revive their Knock Out Posse gang.
