SF Muni Cops Terrorizing Bus Riders; SF Police Terrorist Speed Traps

We now have swarms of 7 hoodlum gang San Francisco transit police standing on Sutter near Kearny at 6 p.m. terrorizing those of us who work for a living with a $75 fine for not paying the $2 fare, which fares cannot possibly sustain our public transit system known as Muni. We also have a speed trap at the Stockton tunnel, going south to Sutter. Both have occurred every week this year, 2013.
We now have swarms of 7 hoodlum gang San Francisco transit police standing on Sutter near Kearny at 6 p.m. terrorizing those of us who work for a living with a $75 fine for not paying the $2 fare, which fares cannot possibly sustain our public transit system known as Muni. We also have a speed trap at the Stockton tunnel, going south to Sutter. Both have occurred every week this year, 2013.

The speed trap is 1 motorcycle cop in the morning stopping everyone, including taxi cabs, an attack on the tourist industry, who is going more than 25 miles per hour, the city speed limit. This is absurd as all cars most likely have to stop at the stoplight at Sutter and Stockton, and certainly have to slow down in the face of the Central Subway boondoggle that has closed Stockton from Geary to Market. This boondoggle, condemned by the Civil Grand Jury, is costing the taxpayers millions of dollars for a 1.7 mile line that will NOT connect with BART or the Muni subway under Market but rather they expect to dig under both for this monstrosity and have 2 stops north of Market, 1 at Union Square and 1 at Washington and Stockton. The Grand Jury expects that the dig under the 2 vital subways under Market will cause both to stop, a disaster for the entire Bay Area. This is a palm-greasing racket that has nothing to do with public transportation. The speed trap is an excuse for not working for a living and is simply vicious.

We are less than 6 weeks into 2013, and not only do we have the speed trap at Sutter and Stockton which has been going on for about a year, but now we have swarms of 7 huge gangster hoodlum Muni police, attacking the workingclass with their $75 tickets. They tried to harrass one man as he was getting ON the bus, before he had a chance to pay! He seemed well off; hopefully he will complain. Most of these gangster hoodlum cops just stand around doing nothing, receiving a decent salary and excellent benefits from us taxpayers.
