Is San Francisco becoming more dangerous?
Reading Mark’s post below, I clicked through to the Chron story linked, and saw this tidbit buried at the end:
San Francisco recorded 85 homicides last year, down from 96 in 2005, which had been the city’s highest number of homicides in a decade. Three people were fatally shot in the Bayview on Dec. 29, meaning there have been 14 homicides in the city in the past 17 days.
That seems like a whole lot of people being shot. Not to mention the charred body of a woman found on a boat ramp down by Candlestick Park. What’s going on?
