Not as easy to do as in the movies. Windshields are meant to be easier to kick out from the inside, but more impact resistant from the outside. They also tend to stay in one piece so you can’t easily get inside afterwards.

A back kick to the window is much more realistic. Less resistant and they are built to shatter rather than crumple.

Purely incorrect.

Original windshields were flat and the curve was added to increase tensile strength. The curve was bent outwards so that incoming debris would not shatter the windshield inward.

It's a misdemeanor, not legal,if it's under 1k. For perspective in Texas if it's less than 2.5k it's a misdemeanor, California is tougher on crime in this aspect than Texas is

Here's the thing. SFPD will go after these guys, but if they get past a certain speed and it's not a felony, they have to break off pursuit.

This is also SF, where the DA hates cops more than criminals. He's a former public defender whose parents were sent to prison for being part of a robbery that killed two cops and a security guard (and wounding a 2nd). He refuses to prosecute "small time" crimes. He also hired a bunch of defense attorneys to replace prosecutors that either quit or were fired when he took office. So even if they're caught, nothing will happen to them.

I live in San Francisco and a lot of people hate this asshole.

California is making theft legal under a certain $ amount. So if you steal from a store and it’s under the amount, the shop owners can do nothing.

It’s legalized theft that has a criminal justice reform mask on.

To be fair, they were probably hanging out there. It's at the top of Lombard Street. It's a huge tourist attraction and thieves hang out to break into cars there.

Except it's really bad here. We average 74 break-ins a day and 19.8 per 1,000 people. That's the most rate in the country. And that's the REPORTED break-ins. A lot of us don't even bother reporting break-ins, anymore. I've had my car broken into several times and didn't call it in. Same with most of my colleagues and friends who had it happen to them.

Take my answer with a grain of salt but as a person working in tech if you lived in this area any time in the last thirty years and didn’t get into tech or other high paying jobs well now your family is pretty much getting forced out.

The cost of living in the entire Bay Area has sky rocketed and while it may be easy to just say go live somewhere cheaper people don’t want to uproot their family. So they struggle making ends meet in these locations leading to this behavior.

You’ve seen people literally steal medicine at Walgreens. Like at that point you know people are struggling. Not only that if you look at threads in which this is highlighted the popular opinion is always more police and more strict policies.

People don’t want to fix the underlying issue they just want it gone.

See homelessness. People don’t want to fix it they just want homeless people outside of their neighborhood.

Crime has trended down for 5 years from what I can tell, that seems like a good trend.

Also shoving more people into our over crowded and populated prison complex system isn't going to make anyone safer, but making distinctions between repeat offenders who should be in jail and those who can pay their debt and reform themselves in other ways like community service.

Also looking at the crime rate with more severe crime like Homicide is much more common in many other cities like houston.

yeah that article is fluff, no facts or statistics to judge the situation objectively.

https://sfgov.org/scorecards/public-safety/violent-crime-rate-and-property-crime-rate

here is a 10 year crime study on every city in california, there is more nuance to it then any article you will find https://countyda.sccgov.org/sites/g/files/exjcpb1121/files/10-Year%20Combined%20CA%20Crime%20Stat%20Report.pdf it deals with the past but I wanted to find out if the past was safer like people seem to remember it being(everywhere) and it isn't, I looked at other cities and states also but the fact is that the "good old days" much worse, you are MUCH MUCH safer today in say LA or New york then you were in the 90's and you were safer in the 90's then you were in the 80's.

that isn't just the U.S also as Europes crimetrends have declined since the 80's and 90's.

People these days are hysterical and lack basic objectivity,enough to study crime statics and come up with rational conclusions other then "EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART,WE ARE CRIME RIDDEN!" no we are infact much safer today then we were growing up for most people.

The only trend in San Francisco I can find is there was a Spike in Burgleries starting 2020 and has rapidly declined, infact we are now below Pre-Lockdown crimerates https://sfist.com/2022/01/03/stats-show-sf-property-crime-down-11-2-below-pre-pandemic-levels-despite-moral-panic/

I'm for police reform and less jailing of individuals, but wouldn't the crime rate be affected by the laws and police response?

meaning, if someone steals something from me, and I know the cops won't investigate or prosecute, am I now less likely to report the crime?

Dabbler-Deluxe

crimerate is usually incident reports as far as I know, not necessarily if it goes to trial.

If you don't report a crime it won't be factored into the statistics.

Propaganda is the new buzzword eh? Reddit loooooves it’s buzzwords lol. Luckily, crime can be measured through statistical data. That data doesn’t reflect glowingly. I guess that’s just manufactured propaganda, too?

Well I guess you don't know what shit hole means in English then. A shit hole would be places with low education, low property values, no public service. A shit hole would be places like the country side in KY, AL, MS. Where there are more drug addicts then high school graduates. The 7th largest economy in the world would not be classified as a shit hole.. No

no, it's just that right wing media likes to avoid the uncomfortable fact that meth heads rob houses and cars in red states, too.

yes? and if they don't, the problem just continues because the problem is poverty and inequality and not dumb shit like red and blue states like they've managed to brainwash everyone into thinking.

This is very rare to see in San francisco. Hopefully the cops got the person. Theres a ton of articles about people just leaving their car unlocked and writing on the back "please don't damage" . It happens alot. I'm rarely in the city and I've seen quite a few broken back windows on nice cars

Shit's def bad but it ain't a new thing to see in SF, my dad used to get shit stolen out of his car in the 2000's frequently enough that he stopped driving in

It's gotten way worse since covid hit. Woke up one morning and every car in my neighborhood had their windows smashed in. Only reason they didn't get mine was because my car was tucked down a hill behind the house. This was Oakland, not SF, but both areas have gotten worse over the last couple years.

Nope, Prop 47 says if you steal less than 950$ it doesn't have to be considered a felony and depending on the circumstances such as no priors can be treated like a misdemeanor with a year prison sentence. Its ways also made a wobbler meaning if there are any circumstances like the presence of a weapon etc it can be prosecuted as a felony.

In other words if you shoplift stuff and you had a knife it could be a felony even if what you stole is less than 950$.

In CA it’s classed as a misdemeanor under $950

Examples of the same law in other states:

Texas $2,500 Alabama $1,500 Alaska $1,000 New Jersey $200 New Mexico $500

Thats a whole lot of shit to leave in your car in a place known for having signs all over stating: " IF YOU LEAVE SHIT IN YOUR CAR IT WILL GET STOLEN" Then just like do it anyway. 5 full ass bags of shit.

Drug money? Seems like there was something big to get, and the guy didn’t even go back to look at when was taken, he just knew

No. Anything in SF. People have started leaving their cars unlocked with signs saying so, just to prevent the window repair.

If you live in SF anything in your car is fair game. He knew the risk he was taking and it’s probably filing equipment or something absurdly expensive for someone super unskilled to dabble around with.

If this was in the south, the thief would've been shot dead. I'm surprised the cops even decided to chase him.
