    Too bad the merchant wasn’t armed. He could have ended Missie’s crime career and saved the City and County of San Francisco the cost of jail and a trial.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 10 Thumb down 7

    Hi Roy,

    The notice I received from CCOP said it happened on 3/1/14 at 2:15 AM but your post says 2/21? Two different ones????

      I noticed that too. On the notice there was a link to their site and it listed the date as 2/21 twice. I’m assuming it was 2/21.
