Hey, that was exciting yesterday, and according to the police, no one got hurt. A lot of people were frustrated, though, what with Caltrain being seriously delayed.
Officer Teper said in an email:
Hi. The incident occurred on 22nd between Illinois and Pennsylvania. The suspect was having a psychotic episode and was taken in for treatment. There were no injuries.
I have not seen anything regarding any incident on the 600 block of Texas.
Thank you for writing.
The rumor that the individual (suspect?) was living under the freeway remains unconfirmed.
Maybe now is the time for us as citizens to figure out how to be empathetic. I haven’t been able to get past the first chapter or two of “Hobos, Hustlers, and Backsliders: Homeless in San Francisco“, but it is about people who lived here in Dogpatch only a few years ago — probably under that bridge. Is there anything in it that could teach us about our neighbors? Please let us know if you have read it and if it opened your heart or closed it up.
