    The bad guys win again: San Francisco, sanctuary city




    The bad guys win again

    Sometimes repetition is good. Last week, I wrote that being in California can drive people crazy – political correctness, diversity, multiculturalism and all that.

    Not a day goes by that the insanity isn't reinforced and not surprisingly, but this time shockingly, it happened again last week.

    This time it deals with the law, the courts, local government, public safety, a vicious triple murder and illegal-alien gang members protected by the misguided concept of a "sanctuary city."

    I'm speaking specifically of the city and county of San Francisco.

    It was the same week that a proposal was made in the Oakland City Council to have that city also become a "sanctuary city." That essentially means that illegal aliens are given the protections of citizenship.

    Illegals become almost untouchable – police can't consider immigration status, schools can't ask and neither can medical providers, social services and more. It allows churches to provide "sanctuary" for people breaking a basic law of a sovereign nation – that borders have meaning and should only be crossed with legal documentation.

    There are numerous sanctuary cities in California and across the country – a situation supported, fostered and strongly defended by those who believe that illegal aliens should be protected and helped.

    The only thing better than sanctuary for illegals would be for them to get amnesty from the feds. That would wipe out the fact they broke the law getting into this country in the first place. It would put them at the head of the line for citizenship and all the social and financial benefits.

    Never forget that amnesty is on the Obama agenda in Washington. Amnesty – or "comprehensive immigration reform" as it's called – is what the president wants just as soon as he's done with health care and cap and trade.

    So while Oakland continues in its utopian dream world, across the Bay in San Francisco – which is a sanctuary city – the reality of what that means for the safety of American citizens and other residents has become painfully and insultingly clear.

    In fact, it's an instance of a misguided legal system rearing its ugly head with dangerous ramifications.

    On Feb. 22, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Charlotte Wollard threw out a damages lawsuit brought against the city by the wife and family of a man and his two adult sons who were brutally murdered by an illegal-alien gang member.

    In June 2008, 48-year-old Tony Bologna and his three sons were driving in the city, just a few blocks from home. Shots rang out from a passing car – shots that killed Tony and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16.

    A third son survived and identified the shooter as 21-year-old Edwin Ramos. There have been allegations Tony and his sons were thought to be gang members. But they were not.

    Ramos said he was driving that car but didn't shoot. He's pleaded not guilty. He could face life in prison without parole.

    But he isn't a usual suspect. Ramos has a record of street crimes – an assault in 2003 and a purse snatching in 2004. San Francisco considered him a juvenile (even though there's no proof of his actual age) and because of the sanctuary city protection, his immigration status was ignored and he wasn't reported to federal immigration officials.

    Because of that, San Francisco juvenile courts sent Ramos to a city-run shelter and then to a "ranch" for such criminals instead of jail. And then, he was released to the streets.

    Prosecutors don't consider him benign. Beyond being an illegal alien who should have been reported to immigration, he's also said to be a member of the violent MS-13 gang, and his prior crimes were violent.

    But because of the sanctuary policy, Ramos got a slap on the wrist and was freed. Now Tony and his sons are dead.

    His widow and daughter sued the city, holding it responsible for failing to turn Ramos over to immigration despite prior arrests as a juvenile. They claim that had the city followed federal law and turned Ramos over to immigration after his earlier arrests, he wouldn't have been free to kill the Bologna family.

    Superior Court Judge Woolard did more than just toss out the lawsuit. She said the cities "generally are not liable for failing to protect individuals against crime."

    Consider that!

    She said the city had no duty to protect anyone from Ramos unless there was information he posed a specific danger to someone. Since there was no such "specific" evidence, the city is off the legal hook.

    But the Bologna family attorney, Matthew Davis, told the San Francisco Chronicle there would be an appeal because while a city generally isn't responsible for protecting everyone from crime, this case is different because by not reporting Ramos to immigration authorities, the city was "flat-out violating the law." He's referring to federal law that prohibits federal officials from interfering with enforcing immigration laws.

    The murders created quite a political flap in the city resulting in Mayor Gavin Newsom reversing the sanctuary practice of not turning suspected illegal criminals over to immigration.

    Now, he wants them turned over after arrests.

    Not to be out-done in political correctness, city supervisors passed an ordinance overruling Newsom, saying there should be no reporting until after a suspect is found guilty.

    Newsom, suddenly concerned about "following federal law," says he won't enforce the ordinance.

    In the meantime, people in San Francisco are at the mercy of illegals who commit further crimes and the court holds the city harmless.

    Think about that next time you visit.

    Oh, and don't forget that Tony, Michael and Matthew Bologna are still dead.

    San Francisco is going through a Full Blown Collapse and if you try to flee to protect you and your business, YOU will be punished

    San Francisco announces plans to PUNISH businesses for fleeing due to rampant crime

    Retail stores are fleeing San Francisco in droves as the California city collapses under the weight of rampant crime and theft. And rather than deal with the crime problem, city leaders instead want to punish the stores trying to leave.The so-called "Grocery Protection Act," introduced by city Board of Supervisors member Dean Preston (Democratic Socialist), says stores that try to leave San Francisco would have to provide the city with six months' notice, allowing city leaders time to look for a replacement retail tenant.
    This bill was introduced not long after Whole Foods Market closed down its flagship San Francisco store after just a year of being there. Crime was so rampant at Whole Foods that the store was losing more than it was selling, prompting it to vacate the premises.
    Not only that, but workers at the now-closed Whole Foods location were routinely threatened with weapons as vagrants flooded the store. Homeless people would throw food at staff and provoke fights, with some even defecating on the floor, creating a health hazard.
    In one particularly nasty incident, a homeless man with a knife sprayed an employee with a fire extinguisher. There were also routine incidents of people overdosing on drugs in the store's washrooms, with one man actually dying there after taking too much fentanyl and methamphetamine.
    An astounding 570 emergency calls were logged at the now-defunct location, all of these occurring in just a single calendar year. One of the calls involved an employee reporting that a "male [with] machete is back," and another in which "another security guard was just assaulted."
    (Related: Despite its reputation as being one of the "greenest" cities in the world, San Francisco dumps massive amounts of raw sewage into its bay.)
    Forcing businesses to stay

    Rather than show sympathy towards the store and its employees while offering solutions, San Francisco city leaders instead complained that Whole Foods was leaving.
    "Our neighborhood waited a long time for this supermarket, but we're also well aware of problems they've experienced with drug-related retail theft, adjacent drug markets, and the many safety issues related to them," said Matt Dorsey, a former San Francisco Board of Supervisors member who added that he is "incredibly disappointed" at the store's closing.
    Preston was even more upset about Whole Foods shutting down. He stated that Whole Foods should have had to give half a year's worth of notice before being allowed to flee.
    "Our communities need notice, an opportunity to be heard, and a transition plan when major neighborhood grocery stores plan to shut their doors," Preston said.
    If Preston's bill passes, any store like Whole Foods that tries to leave without six months' advanced notice would be considered non-compliant, subjecting it to potential legal proceedings.
    Keep in mind that it is not just grocery stores that are fleeing San Francisco. Other large businesses that have left the California city in recent years include Adidas, AT&T Inc., Nordstrom and Lego Group.
    "The stores should demand compensation for staff and loss of goods from the local authority," one commenter wrote about how, if anything, stores should be suing San Francisco for not doing enough to protect their businesses and customers from rampant crime.
    "San Fransicko will soon become the proud owner of all the city's grocery stores," wrote another. "And they still won't be able to keep the shelves stocked because the trucks will be hijacked before they can unload."
    "This is exactly the type of action that will attract new businesses, too," joked another, sarcastically mocking the Grocery Protection Act for the stupidity that it is.
