Undercover cops to ride Muni systemwide

Undercover Muni stings will begin citywide Wednesday following a string of violence on city buses.

Police Chief George Gascon is expected to announce details of the program, dubbed Operation Safe Muni, Wednesday afternoon at a press conference.

The idea was launched by Ingleside Station in September following the stabbing of 11-year-old Hatim Mansori. The sixth grader survived his injuries. The man who stabbed him remains at large.

Since then, Muni safety concerns have risen as an actor riding the bus was beaten and robbed by gang members and a man was found dead on the 5-Fulton hours after it had been parked in the Muni yard.
