Meanwhile, SF neighborhoods hiring private security as SF newspaper asks is residents should…”tolerate burglaries”.
San Francisco Department of Elections officials have now officially certified a petition that seeks to recall San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin.
The special election to recall Boudin will take place on June 7, 2022, during the statewide primary election.
About two weeks ago, the group Safer SF Without Boudin announced it had already gathered 83,487 signatures from San Francisco voters who want to recall Boudin — well over the 30,000 needed to for the June ballot.
The group alleges that Boudin has failed to prioritize the public’s safety by being too lenient on repeat offenders.
The signatures have been verified and the recall is proceeding to the next stage.
“Today the Department of Elections certified that the petition to recall District Attorney Chesa Boudin contains a sufficient number of valid signatures and that the petition is successful,” wrote Director of Elections John Arntz, who sent a letter to petition organizers on Tuesday notifying them of the conclusion of the certification process.
…“As prescribed under California Elections Code 11225, the Department reviewed 4,174 signatures (5% of the total submitted) that were randomly selected from the 83,484 signatures submitted with the petition,” wrote Arntz. “Based on this review, the Department determined the petition contained a number of valid signatures greater than the minimum of 51,325 signatures required for the petition to be deemed successful.”
And while the rule of law deteriorates as Boudin implements is utopian vision, residents in some San Francisco neighborhoods are banding together to hire its own security force.
Pictures all over social media depict crimes in the city, even in broad daylight. Cars burglarized, sometimes with people inside, sometimes the same car more than once.
On Russian Hill Tuesday, tired of being victims, people met to consider the cost for some peace of mind.
Someone at the meeting said people know they can come to San Francisco to steal and assault with no consequences.
Alan Kutzenko has lived on Russian Hill for 16 years and knows about crime up there.
“Lots of broken glass. Cars are just constantly broken into,” he said. “There have been a number of package robberies. It’s actually rampant … I have a few women friends and they are very uncomfortable and nervous at night.”
Not far away in the Marina District, neighbors have already hired a security force.
Meanwhile, the local media is trying to stop the red pilling. The San Francisco Chronicle recently asked if residents should “tolerate burglaries” amid rampant city crime.
Residents and city leaders are searching for answers: should they tolerate burglaries as a part of city living, and focus on barricading homes?

The response on social media to that question was epic.
“Can you imagine living in a city where barricading yourself in your home is considered a more viable option than (checks notes)… arresting burglars??l” wrote Twitter user [email protected]
“Think about how far gone the city of San Francisco must be for its major newspaper to write the first sentence below as if it’s a reasonable civic question,” another user, Jeff B. is *BOX OFFICE POISON*, wrote.
“Posting this so people who never lived in SF see the insanity we are dealing with,” wrote former UFC fighter, Jake Shields. “I saw it was only Gonna get worse and fled a year ago but I have friends who stayed convinced it will get better.”
