first_img Tags: crimes • Mission Police Station • police Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0% Gutierrez said a team of plainclothes officers had been shifted from a 2 p.m. to midnight shift to a 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. shift to better address late-night and early-morning crime. He also reported that officers had been focusing traffic enforcement on areas known to be frequented by johns, who often cruise through stop lights. The police presence, he said, “sends a message that we’re here.”But in both areas, tenants seemed unconvinced that something would actually be done.“More patrols need to happen,” said one resident.Cephus referenced previous neighborhood meetings and a survey she had distributed in the hopes of identifying and being able to prosecute specific individuals who cause trouble at the park, but said only one survey had been returned. Cephus and Gutierrez both encouraged residents to continue to make calls to police about illegal activity.  The high call volume would demonstrate a need for officers to higher-ups. Reports to police, both said, would also help support the cases necessary to actually apprehend criminals.But neighbors weren’t thrilled about being told to simply continue to do what they have already been doing.“It’s exhausting to have to keep making calls,” said one. “Neighbors are moving.”“How many phone calls do you get on an area before it gets flagged?” another wanted to know.Some also wanted to know about enforcement of San Francisco’s sit-lie ordinance, which allows for citations against individuals sitting or lying on city sidewalks, as a potential method of discouraging the tents. Some of the latter, they said, harbored the individuals they suspected of crime. But Gutierrez said sit-lie citations rarely, if ever, lead to arrests or serious consequences for not being paid. Others disagreed with targeting the encampments.“Some of these people rob, some of these people steal…but I think criminalizing homeless people is a mistake,” said Molly Hankwitz, who coordinates the garden program at Parque Niños Unidos. As for prostitution and related problems on Capp and Shotwell, Gutierrez said a specialized prostitution abatement team had been working in the area a few months ago, but after one of its officers was injured, their assignment was suspended while the officer recovered. Union rules and for safety  prohibit stationing one officer alone, he said.But he also said the ability to send officers to calls for service depended on the priority of the call, and with robberies and other violent crime, calls for prostitution might be a lower priority depending on manpower.   The captain’s absence from the meeting, for example, which some residents felt snubbed by, was the result of a last-minute notification about an impromptu rally in the Castro that officers responded to.“My son is eight months old, and since he’s been born two people have been killed on my street,” said a resident. “How can we advocate for you to get more resources?”“Be aware of what and who you’re voting for and are they going to support more [officers],” said Cephus.Joshua Arce, a civil rights attorney and laborer’s union liaison who is running for District 9 Supervisor, echoed that sentiment and pointed out that strong controversy over policing has led to disagreement over how to fund the police. “Until we have the de-escalation policies in place and get back to a level of trust…that will be the challenge at City Hall,” Arce said. But the attention to prostitution along the Capp Street corridor already goes beyond Mission Station officers. Special Victims Unit officers and law enforcement from other regional organizations are assisting with identifying with and prostituting regionally active pimps. Cephus also said she had participated in ride-alongs with police on night details to the area to speak with prostitutes and offer them ways to escape prostitution, which often comes as the result of exploitation and sexual trafficking. “We do treat prostitutes as victims in San Francisco,” she said. She also asked residents with security cameras to contact her to assist with identifying repeat offenders.“I think what we want is the magic bullet that’s gonna solve the problem, is regular foot or bicycle patrols,” said resident Ira Woodhead, emphasizing the chilling effect he had observed unexpected uniformed law enforcement presence has on johns.Gutierrez did agree to suggest to the Captain the possibility of having a two-officer team at spend some time in the area during their shift.“There’s a lot of frustration, and a lot of what sounds like there’s nothing we can do,” Woodhead said after the meeting. Nonetheless, he added, “I’m hopeful that we’ll see something happen. It seemed like they were listening at the end.” At a community meeting on Thursday evening, frustrated residents asked for advice and more action from police to reduce pimping, prostitution, violence, and drug dealing in two local hotspots.Residents of Capp and Shotwell streets between 16th and 20th streets asked for increased police attention to prostitution and violence they say stemmed from disputes among pimps. Others who live near Parque Niños Unidos at Folsom and 23rd streets wanted to know what would be done about a group of individuals they said use and sell drugs, threaten passerby, and camp on the sidewalk.Mission Station’s Lieutenant Carlos Gutierrez and Assistant District Attorney Justine Akiko Cephus fielded questions, many of them emotional. “Our neighborhood is fed up with all the excuses you guys are giving us,” said resident Reynaldo Aparicio. “You get paid well beyond blue collar and yet you are not providing us the priority we were looking for.”center_img 0%last_img read more

first_img National Hurricane Center scientists conducted a detailed post-storm analysis for Hurricane Michael, which made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida, and Tyndall Air Force Base on Oct. 10, 2018.They’ve determined that its estimated intensity at landfall was 160 mph (257 kph), a 5 mph (8 kph) increase over the operational estimate used last fall, NOAA said in a news release. That puts Michael just barely over the 157 mph (252 kph) threshold for a category 5 hurricane. Just 36 hours before hitting Florida’s coast, Michael was making its way through the Gulf of Mexico as a 90 mph (145 kph) Category 1 storm.Category 5 winds were likely experienced over a small area, and the change is of little practical significance, NOAA said. Both categories signify the potential for catastrophic damage. Michael was directly responsible for 16 deaths and about $25 billion in damage in the U.S., and parts of the Florida Panhandle are still recovering from the destruction more than six months later.Related Article: Air quality alert issued for parts of South CarolinaThe new landfall speed was determined by a review of the available aircraft winds, surface winds, surface pressures, satellite intensity estimates and Doppler radar velocities, NOAA said. That includes data and analyses that weren’t available during the storm. The increase in the estimated maximum sustained wind speed from the operational estimate is small and well within the normal range of uncertainty, NOAA said.In addition to Hurricanes Michael and Andrew, the only other Category 5 storms known to have made landfall in the U.S. are the Labor Day Hurricane that hit the Florida Keys in 1935 and Hurricane Camille, which ravaged the Mississippi coast in 1969. Michael is also the strongest hurricane landfall on record in the Florida Panhandle and only the second known Category 5 landfall on the northern Gulf coast.Besides wind speed, atmospheric pressure is also used to measure storm intensity, with a lower central pressure generally meaning higher winds. Michael’s central pressure at landfall is the third lowest on record for a landfalling U.S. hurricane since reliable records began in 1900, trailing only the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 and Hurricane Camille of 1969.

(Photo: WWAY) MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Michael, which devastated the Florida Panhandle last fall, was actually stronger than initially measured, prompting forecasters to posthumously upgrade it from a Category 4 storm to a Category 5, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Friday.The upgraded status means Michael was the first hurricane to make landfall in the United States as a Category 5 since Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and only the fourth on record.- Advertisement – last_img read more

first_img[dropcap]W[/dropcap]e’re led to believe that 24 hours is a long time in politics and a long way from Tulsa (c) Gene Pitney but it’s an infinitely shorter time in the Premier League judged by the number of flip-flopping leaders.Arsenal went top (again) yesterday but could be deposed (again) by Man City tonight if they can collect all three points against Chelsea.At the Emirates yesterday it was a game that took an age to get going (and confession time: I DID fall asleep during part of it, despite having had a bet). Arsenal finally came through 2-0 thanks to a couple of crackers in the second half from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. It wasn’t enough to rescue me however as I was on Arsenal (-2) in the handicap with draw included on Star Sports.In the morning update from Martin on the Star Sports fixed odds desk it was no surprise to hear that punters were far more keen on the 17/10 Man City than they were about a draw, or Chelsea win at the Etihad. A win tonight would take their home wins over Chelsea to five-in-a-row and in doing so extend their Premier League winning sequence to nine in-a-row.HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Max last 10 only)Oct 2013 Premier Chelsea 2-1 Man CityApr 2013 FA Cup Chelsea 1-2 Man CityFeb 2013 Premier Man City 2-0 ChelseaNov 2012 Premier Chelsea 0-0 Man CityAug 2012 C Shield Chelsea 2-3 Man CityMar 2012 Premier Man City 2-1 ChelseaDec 2011 Premier Chelsea 2-1 Man CityMar 2011 Premier Chelsea 2-0 Man CitySep 2010 Premier Man City 1-0 ChelseaFeb 2010 Premier Chelsea 2-4 Man CityChelsea of course are right in contention themseleves and would move into a share of second if they can upset the odds and steal all three points.But my guess is, that in order to do that they are going to have to score quite a few goals given the way City are scoring goals for fun. And that’s allowing for the fact that Chelsea have been excellent defensively this season – only Man U and Liverpool have breached the Blues’ goal in the last seven matches (5 clean sheets).And worryingly for Chelsea, it seems the bigger the team – the bigger the win. City put six past Spurs and Arsenal and four against Manchester United!Chelsea won the reverse ficture 2-1 and will take home from the fact that Aguero is out for a month with a hamstring injury and Nasri and Garcia are also unavailable through injury.I can’t be talked out of backing Man City – but prefer the odds against with a one goal deficit.And one thing is certain, I won’t be falling asleep during this one.RECOMMENDED BET (1-10 points)6 points MAN CITY (-1) at around 9/4 with Star SportsRUNNING RETURN (FEBRUARY): PROFIT 14.00 POINTSRUNNING RETURN (YEAR): PROFIT 24.72 POINTSWhat’s your view?
