#Matrix4 Helicopters Buzzing S.F. At Night
by Nighttime is for Sleeping
Sunday Feb 9th, 2020 11:28 PM
Since around 6 p.m. tonight, a movie, Matrix4, has been buzzing the Union Square Financial District of San Francisco with a low flying helicopter, for 5 hours now, and counting, while we try to rest. This should be illegal.
Since around 7 p.m. tonight, a movie , Matrix4, has been buzzing the Union Square Financial District of San Francisco with a low flying helicopter, for 5 hours now, and counting, while we try to rest. This should be illegal.

For more on this insanity, see https://hoodline.com/amp/2020/01/filming-for-the-matrix-sequel-to-bring-helicopters-stunt-drivers-and-gunshots-to-downtown-sf. TWO helicopters will fly overhead at 300 to 1500 feet over the Financial District for a movie from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. This is very dangerous and of course interrupts urgently needed sleep. This garbage movie is not needed by anyone and has no business flying helicopters over a city at night. No one asked our permission and the City of San Francisco has committed a criminal act in allowing this outrage.

Since the Democratic Party machine runs San Francisco's government, this is a good reminder to never vote Democrat or Republican. They have total contempt for all of us. You can be sure they City was paid a fortune for this irritating garbage.

§Homes & Hotels in Financial Dist & Union Square Area
by Nighttime is for Sleeping Monday Feb 10th, 2020 6:32 AM
If you are unfamiliar with the fact that lots of people are in the Financial District & Union Square at night, there are both hotels and residences in both areas. The Financial District has famous hotels such as the large Hyatt Regency at the Embarcadero and the Sheraton Palace at Montgomery and Market. There are also large hotels on Sansome at Pine, Battery at Clay, and Montgomery and California. There are residences at 333 Bush Street, 690 Market, on Clay Street at Kearny and of course all of Chinatown, which is just above the Financial District. The Union Square area has dozens of hotels large and small as well as hundreds of people living in the area. We could hear that terrible noise all over Nob Hill.

The City may claim it needs the money, although the tourists bring in lots more money, but it should look at how it spends the money. It spends $611 million on the police annually, with each cop receiving $100,000 a year and up plus benefits, 86% of which goes to salaries and benefits, which means it is just a jobs program and has nothing to do with public safety. On Sunday, we saw 8 police arresting one poor homeless person, which does nothing to solve the housing crisis at all and is a complete waste of our tax dollars. They should take the entire police budget and use it to house the homeless permanently with the right of eminent domain to take over all the empty condominiums that are just investments.
