Cold summers, thick fog, and beautiful views. Welcome to the subreddit for the gorgeous City by the Bay! San Francisco, California, USA.

2023.06.01 18:30 turgmeister Tired of the crime rage bait

This will probably get down voted to hell because I feel the capability of critical thought is dwindling around here. FWIW, I'm an SF native and now live in EB. Both bayarea and sanfrancisco are in a sad state, filled with anger, fear mongering, and the same tactics news orgs use to keep people watching and afraid.
Honestly, I'm just sick of it. I know crime, mental health, drug use, and homelessness are real issues but I'm sick of how the discussions are being handled. I get it, people are emotional. But emotions cloud reality and fact and instead focus on bandaid solutions.
"Violent crime is down" "Oh but crime is even more underreported now!" "Social media makes it seem like crime is higher" "Police are violent criminals themselves and can't be trusted" "Police are understaffed and we need more stationed everywhere on every corner!"
Like holy shit I'm just tired of reading the same arguments over and over again. In the end of the day, it doesn't fucking matter - the root cause of the issue is clear. It's not a lack of police. It's greed and wealth inequality, and a system that was built on exploitation. This was bound to happen and we're acting as though increasing police budgets is going to somehow reverse this trend. Without better education, after school programs, mental health services, legalization of drugs and supervised injection sites, affordable housing and childcare, and livable wages, we are simply fucked. Yet no one on these subs, nextdoor, the news, politicians, etc. are talking about it and instead throwing the same old solutions that don't work back into the mix. I feel like all anyone wants to see is more police on every corner, and everyone thrown in jail and bam problems solved. That's not the reality and it never was. We just keep doing the same shit, expecting different results.
I'm also tired of all the fake progressivism in the bay. Most of these so called "progressive" politicians aren't truly progressive. They're all frauds and giving progressives a bad name. So don't be turned off by progressive politics because of these people. We've gone down the "hard on crime" route before and we overcrowded our prisons and sentenced people for years over weed crimes. Without any rehab programs to actually help people with their mental health, drug addiction, and integrate them back into society after prison, these people are released and often resort to crime again. I hope we don't turn more and more red because of this, but these subs are not making me hopeful.
Edit: Yeah, results are as expected. :) Thanks for the fun times, bayarea!

2023.06.01 18:01 AutoModerator Monthly Welcome to the Bay Area!


Sup folks. Since we get so many "where should I live" and "how is my commute" threads, we're going to defer newcomers to this thread which will be stickied for the week. This should clean up the sub a bit and allow ya'll to fight over why In'n'Out beats 5 Guys.
Also we'll be developing a/the Welcoming Guide wiki from past recommendation threads (and these threads going forward), so let us know if there's something particularly interesting you think we should include.
For example: why Twin Peaks is not the greatest place to take your first date (throws shade).

For newcomers:

Please feel free to ask your questions here, if they have been asked in the past, we'll do our best to answer them but people may just forward you a link to find the answer elsewhere the subreddit.

2023.05.30 17:37 Huckleberry_99 PSA: women going to/in rockridge/oakland

A group of teenagers has been on a violent robbery spree, and is now believed to be tied to at least 36 robberies in one week (https://abc7news.com/oakland-robberies-children-arrested-police-robbery/13290328/) (https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/oakland-robberies-crime-18116829.php)
They target women, they drive up to their target in a stolen car, she will be outnumbered, they will drag her by the hair, throw her to the ground, and beat her up/stomp on her. They will drive away with her possessions and will often stop at a gas station or a corner store to use her credit cards. They have done this to women of all ages, at night and in broad daylight. They have done this around dozens of bystanders and no bystanders at all. They often wear ski masks.
Although some have been arrested, most of them were released within a few days, and more violent robberies are being reported. They started out in downtown/uptown Oakland (mainly Grand Ave, Broadway, Telegraph), and now an increasing amount of reports are coming from Rockridge.
For women: please be EXTRA EXTRA cautious these days. I'm not going to tell you to be vigilant or aware of your surroundings because no amount of vigilance is going to save you when you are outnumbered. This group brazenly attacks women in broad daylight around couples, families, and children, so don’t lower your guard just because you are not walking alone.
I will say (if you can) get airtags or any kind of tracker and place them in the inner lining of your bag or purse so they are undetectable by the offenders but trackable by you and the police. the police are especially interested in catching this group and being able to track their movement is crucial.
For bystanders: PLEASE write down the license plate number of the getaway car. it is not enough to take videos or photos of the offenders. police have a BUNCH of footage, but more importantly, we need witnesses to positively identify the suspects from a lineup, and we need the license plate number of the car.
This group is not very smart or sophisticated. They are sloppy and have made a bunch of mistakes that make it easier to identify them (one of them dropped her student ID card lol), but to stop them from continuing to brutalize innocent people, we need everyone’s help.
For victims: please see my other post and consider reaching out to me [https://www.reddit.com/oakland/comments/13r59d6/victims\_of\_the\_35\_robberies\_by\_arrested\_suspects/]

2023.05.27 02:24 Quirky-Motor As Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month draws to a close here in the United States, I wanted to share an EXPANDED collection of write-ups featuring the stories of Asians/Pacific Islanders who are currently missing or whose cases have not been resolved.

As Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month draws to a close here in the United States, I wanted to share a collection of write-ups featuring the stories of Asians/Pacific Islanders who are currently missing or whose cases have not been resolved. This is an expansion of a piece I post annually and therefore may it sound similar. These are mostly my pieces as well as a few other cases that I have remembered reading about over the last year or two including some cases recommended by readers. Feel free to add other cases which have stuck with you down in the comment section. I hope to garner some exposure for these lesser known cases and links to sources can be found at the bottom or embedded.
Khoi Dang Vu was a deaf American man who went missing from his family’s home in 2007 in Vancouver, Washington. He left on a rainy night without his coat, bike, or any belongings.

Edward Ryon Makuahanai Aikau, usually known as Eddie Aikau, a famous lifeguard and surfer, was credited with saving over 500 people at Waimea bay on Oahu’s north shore during his tenure as lifeguard. In fact not one person was reported drowned during Eddie’s shifts at the beach. In 1978, 31 year old Aikau had decided to join the Polynesia Voyaging society, a group who planned to travel from Hawaii to Tahiti using only outrigger canoes. Shortly into their journey one canoe sprung a leak and eventually capsized 12 miles south of Molokai. Eddie paddled on his surfboard towards Lanai in a valiant effort to summon help, but soon disappeared. The US Coast Guard were able to save all the passengers and a huge search was launched but Eddie was never found and is presumed drowned. Eddie Aikau is a household name in Hawaii and in the surfing community. Competitions bearing his name and t-shirts, bumper stickers, and other items inscribed with “Eddie would go” are a constant reminder of his legacy and memory. Eddie was of Native Hawaiian and Caucasian, mostly Portuguese, descent. His story can be found here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Aikau

Hang Lee, a 17 year old girl, went missing from St Paul Minnesota on January 12th 1993. Hang was last seen with a friend Kia “Nikki” Lee. She left home with this friend between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. but when Nikki returned home an hour later, Hang was not with her. Nikki initially told authorities Hang had left with some unidentified young men. She later changed her story and said Hang had gone to a job interview with Nikki's own employer, Mark Steven Wallace, at Wallace's small painting and carpentry business on Iroquois Avenue. Wallace told Nikki that he was looking to hire another employee and she suggested her friend Hang as Hang was looking for a new job. Nikki thought that this request from Wallace was odd as he did not have enough work to hire another employee at that time. Nikki eventually told authorities that she and Hang went to Wallace's place of work and drove around with him in a white truck before switching and driving around in a tan Chevy Cavalier. Wallace dropped Nikki off and then left with Hang in the car. Wallace also told Nikki to not report what happened to the police.After a few interviews with the police Nikki retained an attorney and is no longer cooperating. Wallace denied involvement but also retained an attorney. Wallace is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Hang Lee. He has a record which includes rape, kidnapping, stalking, and drug possession. Hang Lee has never been located and her mother and 13 siblings are still looking for her.Hang is described as a sweet and naïve teenager who is only 17 and 1993. She was 5 ft tall and weighed 90 lb. She was last seen wearing a lightweight black leather jacket, a black t-shirt with "Skid Row" written on the back, black jeans or slacks, sneakers and several pieces of jewelry, including two silver bracelets.

In September of 2019, Tampa native Paulino Norberto Del Mundo Japor Jr. decided she wanted to go on a 10 vacation to Cozumel, Mexico but during a layover in Dallas she called her sister and asked for help getting a ticket back to Florida as she had changed her mind about going to Mexico. Her family said on the phone she sounded “desperate” and “incoherent.” She never boarded a flight home or boarded her plane to Mexico. Her last known whereabouts were documented on security tapes from the Dallas airport. Her phone and bank account have not been used since that day and she was never seen again. Paulino is a transgender woman who went by the names Paula, Paulina, or Pauline.

Yuan Xia Wang went missing near Washington DC when she was headed for a doctor’s appointment. Yuan had been found at Dulles Airport when a man who was smuggling people into the country was detained and Yuan was one of his charges. Police became suspicious when Yuan who was supposedly a Thai citizen could not speak or understand Thai, but rather spoke Mandarin. Yuan told authorities her parents in Fuzhou, China had paid money for this man to get her into the country using a Thai passport. She was supposed to live with an aunt in the US, but she didn't know where or who this person was so she was placed in foster care for the time being. Other reports say that her smuggler was supposed to take her to a hotel in Alexandria, Virginia. Her foster parents hired a Mandarin speaking babysitter to stay with her until she was enrolled in at a local middle school. Yuan went missing only a few weeks later while on the way to a doctor's appointment. She reportedly got off the school bus and was supposed to take a cab to the doctors but vanished by the time the cab arrived. Although Yuan said she was 12, she was 5’ 6” in height and most people thought she was probably 14-15 at the time of her disappearance. She is of Chinese descent and speaks Mandarin. Police believe she either ran away, was kidnapped by her family members or smugglers, or met with foul play. She may have been seen in Kansas city in 2008.

Faloma Luhk, 10, and Maleina Luhk, 9, disappeared while waiting for their school bus in As Teo, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, on May 25th, 2011.

Dong Chull Jung disappeared within minutes in Lakewood, Washington. The 78 year old was residing at the Golden Lion Motel on Tacoma Way in Lakewood, Washington. The establishment has long been a hotbed of criminal activity and violence since at least the 1990s. On average the police responded to incidents at the 24-room hotel over 100 times per year. November 22nd 2003 was one of those times. On that day witnesses called the police after hearing a “disturbance” in Dong’s room. When the authorities arrived, they found a giant pool of blood on the floor as well as Dong’s prescription eyeglasses, but Dong was nowhere to be found. According to the News Tribune, a paper out of Tacoma, one week before Dong’s disappearance he was granted a temporary domestic violence protection order from a Paul C. Jung, who might be Dong’s adult son. In June of 2003, someone named Hae Sung Jung, got a restraining order against Dong. Hae might be the estranged wife of Dong, but this isn’t known for sure. There are vague reports that Dong was having “marital issues'' at the time of his disappearance. Very little information is available in the case. The Golden Lion Inn was finally torn down in 2017 but the fate of the elderly man who resided within remains a mystery. Dong is described as an Asian (Korean) male, with brown eyes and thinning gray hair. He is 5’6'' and weighs 135 lbs. Dong wears prescription eyeglasses but they were left behind when he vanished. If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Dong Jung please call Pierce County Crime Stoppers 253-591-5959. https://charleyproject.org/case/dong-chull-jung

Amber Aiaz and Melissa Fu were mother and daughter who went missing In November, 2019 from Irvine, California. The story of their disappearance and possible kidnapping is complicated. I would suggest reading the story here or here if you are interested in the details but the basic story is this. Amber's husband, Cheng Zhang, reported his wife and stepdaughter missing to the police about a week after they were last seen. He said that a Chinese man and woman came to his door, put something on his face and he passed out. He reported that when he woke up he found blood and evidence of a struggle in the apartment. He also found a note telling him not to report his wife and daughter missing to the police for at least several days and continued to get notes over the next week. He did what the notes instructed for the next several days. When he finally did report his wife and stepdaughter missing, police were skeptical of his story to say the least. Several months later police reported that they had found nothing to indicate that Cheng’s story was untrue, including over 40 hours of interviews with him and 44 days of around the clock surveillance. In the past Amber had told acquaintances that she was a very wealthy woman who had millions of dollars to her name. While this was not true, authorities speculated that Amber may have been kidnapped for ransom only for her captors to find out that her story of riches was nothing more than a farce. Amber's money has not been touched in either her Chinese or American bank accounts. Both mother and daughter left behind their passports and there's no indication that either of them have entered China.
Amber is described as a 34-year-old Chinese woman who is 5'9 and weighed 180 lb. She has black hair and brown eyes. When last seen she was wearing a black shirt, a black vest, black fitted pants with white writing on them, and light colored shoes. She may use the name Mei Yi Wu or Meiyi W. Wu.
Melissa is described as a 12 or 13 year old Chinese female with black hair and brown eyes. She was 5 '11” in height and weighed about 200 lb. She was last seen wearing a black tracksuit.
Cheng described the unidentified abductors as a Chinese couple in their 40s. Both had average builds. The woman was reported to be about 5’8” and had her black hair tied back in a bun. The man was of average build about 190 lb. and 5 '10”. He had short black hair. The couple may have been driving a black Cadillac and they may have been seen near the apartment complex that day by other neighbors.
Destiny Dee Sanith was last seen by her family on March 3rd, 2022 in Williamstown New Jersey. At about 2:30 in the afternoon on March 3rd, she asked her mom if she could borrow the car to go visit a friend in South Philadelphia. When Destiny did not return in the evening her mother learned that she never made it to her friend's house that day. New Jersey police had contact with Destiny at about 5:20 a.m. on March 4th In Folsom New Jersey. Destiny and her car were near a strip mall at the time. What exactly happened is not clear but police reported they helped Destiny move her car into a parking spot and then gave her a ride to a Wawa convenience store about a mile up the road. Destiny's family has reported that they have surveillance video of Destiny entering and then later leaving the Wawa store after purchasing a drink. At about 9:00 a.m. she was seen leaving the store with a drink crossing the road, turning into another convenience store and then going behind the building and out of view. This is the last known sighting and location of Destiny Sanith. On March 5th when Destiny had still not returned home she was reported missing to the police and her family learned about her interaction with the police on the morning of March 4th. Destiny has not been seen or heard from since.
Destiny is described as an Asian female 27 years old, who is 5'6 and height and weighs about 160 lb. She reportedly has short wavy brown hair and brown eyes.

2023.05.24 23:41 TornMachinery Have the politics of California become so polarized that there is no solution to any of the state / city's woes?

What I by this is that there is a there thread on what happened to the money given by taxpayers to help with homelessness, and everyone comments acknowledges it vanished due to some form corruption. I've never seen a place where people openly acknowledge that their own politicians are corrupt and do not listen to their constituents, but still they still re-elect them and their politicians continue to win in a landslide victory. Have politics in state gotten so polarized that our elected officials can continuously do their job poorly, but still run unopposed?
You occasionally get comments like "vote them all out," but that effectively translates to vote for more progressive politicians. We've elected progressives in the Bay Area and the problems have only gotten worse. Then people say to vote for moderates, and problems continue to get worse (see San Francisco DA office). If you suggest voting for a political outsider or for the party that hasn't been in power for the last half of century you get called a racist.
I don't know, it feels like things are only going to get progressively worse and people are just going to be told to deal with it because the politics in state have become so polarized.

I’m not sure if this is appropriate outside of saturdays, but this post is a perfect example of the phrase “scratch a liberal and a fascist bleeds.”

Link to their IG. They were active on /bayarea for a while, long time ago. We could use them again!

2023.05.19 19:05 kqed If you've been laid off recently, KQED has a series of guides about what to do next

Hi bayarea! We're KQED, the Bay Area's local NPR station. A few months ago, we asked what you wish you knew before you got laid off and got some great advice. We also called experts on jobhunting, saving money and applying for the unemployment benefits you’re entitled to – and compiled a series of guides with clear, accessible information directly aimed at people who’ve lost their jobs.
So You Just Got Laid Off. What Do You Do Now?
Knowing exactly what to do when you get laid off can feel like a daunting prospect — especially if losing your job came as a total shock. And unfortunately, it’s a situation that many people find themselves in.
Read the whole series here, or keep scrolling for a preview. And if you’re lucky enough not to need this advice right now, consider sending it to someone you know who does.
From Unemployment Benefits to Health Insurance, the Steps to Take ASAP: We’ve laid out the steps for applying for unemployment insurance (UI, a.k.a unemployment benefits) online, and exploring your options for health insurance after losing your job.
We also cover three crucial tips for navigating these – often-complicated – processes:

The Best Ways to Find a New Job, According to an Expert
If you’ve just been laid off, how can you embark on finding a new job — especially if it’s been a while? How fast should you move, and where should you look?
We consulted a Bay Area career coach about the most effective, productive ways to find your next job and how to approach updating your résumé, plus how to retain your peace during what can be an often-frustrating process.
For example? Consider not following the common career advice to immediately post a mass message on LinkedIn (or similar) that you’re looking for a job – and instead take the time to individually reach out to people with an honest, clear message detailing how you’d love their help. (We have a template for that message.)

How to Prioritize Your Mental Health After Losing Your Job, From Telling Family to Self-Care
Getting laid off can have emotional repercussions as well as financial ones. A job can represent security and stability, and when that is taken away, our mental health also takes a hit.
Since looking after our mental health is equally critical as figuring out how to keep paying the bills, we spoke to several mental health professionals across California to hear their thoughts on how you can deal with the emotional fallout of losing a job, the best ways to tell and reassure your family and where you can access mental health care after losing employer-based health insurance.
One big piece of advice offered: If you have the option to take some time off before looking for a new role, fill up this time with things you always wanted to do but were prevented from doing by work. “Think about all the things that have been put on hold that are fun, inventive and creative,” one therapist told us — and seek them out.

2023.05.15 21:50 danasf Let's talk about 'liberal policies = fail' narrative

Yet another 'sf is dooooomed' article which I'd like to eye roll away as another right wing troll farm hit piece, but I think this one is a bit different. Maybe it just becomes troll-y in the comments? The author does not directly attribute the problems in San Francisco to liberal policies, but they finger an excess of performative actions (vs practical solutions, a common problem in both left and right wing American politics) and 'neoliberal greed' as root causes.
This this article when first posted in commercialRealEstate was immediately followed by a predictable chorus of 'libtard policies make failed cities' with an equally predictable lack of data and surplus of inference and correlation. Similar problems in American cities that are not liberal bastions are ignored. The implication that if the liberals would just be tough on crime, all these problems would go away is ever present and never substantiated.
So /bayarea, I challenge you to read through this article, which the author explicitly says was not originally intended to counter doom narratives, yet it became a doomer article based on interviews and experiemces, and ask you to share instructive, well sourced arguments for the causes of the perceived current crisis in sf and policies to reverse the situation.
Are we in yet another San Francisco's boom bust cycle? Is this a failure of leadership pursuing ineffective strategies? Is this a problem shared by many American cities being driven by larger American political and socioeconomic trends? Is this a conspiracy of the Illuminati, jealous of San Francisco's Free love vibes and desiring to put the lizard people in power?

2023.05.10 23:07 TornMachinery Does anyone actually read past the headlines of a reddit post?

I was looking at the comments for this reddit post about someone who got robbed going to a memorial and half the comments were saying Oakland, but if actually read the article it happened in Berkeley, Sacramento and Derby street to be particular, which is in south Berkeley, but still everyone just assumed it was Oakland based on the title.

2023.05.10 06:49 sjsharks323 PG&E in Bay Area - Daily Energy usage down

Not sure why the /bayarea wouldn't let me crosspost, but here you go in case you were wondering.
Leave it to PG&E to still screw us over even after NEM 3.0. Just wow. Sounds like they put the issue in the back of the queue instead of actually making it a priority to fix, like yesterday.

2023.05.01 18:01 AutoModerator Monthly Welcome to the Bay Area!


Sup folks. Since we get so many "where should I live" and "how is my commute" threads, we're going to defer newcomers to this thread which will be stickied for the week. This should clean up the sub a bit and allow ya'll to fight over why In'n'Out beats 5 Guys.
Also we'll be developing a/the Welcoming Guide wiki from past recommendation threads (and these threads going forward), so let us know if there's something particularly interesting you think we should include.
For example: why Twin Peaks is not the greatest place to take your first date (throws shade).

For newcomers:

Please feel free to ask your questions here, if they have been asked in the past, we'll do our best to answer them but people may just forward you a link to find the answer elsewhere the subreddit.
