The suspect then fled on foot down Market St.

  1. He looks like EVERY drug addict floating around the city and hanging out in the mid-Market area!

    The 600 block of Market, like all of Market street is over run by nut jobs and people looking for their next fix who hide in plain sight under the misguided sobriquet of “the homeless”. At 11 pm at night you have to be suicidal to be hanging around the 600 block of Market. The men who thirty years ago were happy to be allowed to sleep in door fronts downtown have literally taken over Market Street while we looked the other way and kept electing Democratic place savers who are effective only in spouting PC gibberish over and over whatever the context. No, housing these people will not solve the problem. The problem is generational, exploding and is coming to a Bart train near you yesterday.
