OK the whole big goverment stuff is overrated. I do not see the big deal about throwing incentives in or fining people who are just apathetic about the responsibilities that come with living in an urban environment. When private behavior has public consequences it becomes public matter.

Yet another atrocious murder in this crime-ridden, violent city.. This time again in the so called safe Sunset district. Murder in broad daylight! This is not even in the front page of SF Chronicle.

Man slain outside Sunset restaurant is IDd

Just goes to show how little people care about crime in the city. The newspaper is full of celebrity gossip, lifestyle gossip and news about crime in East Bay. Sooner or later people will realize that they can't hide horrible crime situation with good PR.

BTW, does anyone know murder count in SF for 2010 so far. Looks like it is going pretty strong. Welcome to the Detroit of west coast! You can get shot at broad day-light once you walk out of your million dollar dump in a foggy neighborhood. It continues to amaze me why anyone in their right mind buys a home in the city.

this is the only thing in this WHOLE post that bothers me, 4 murders in one year is entirely unreasonable. 1 murder would be unreasonable. i get that in big cities like that, there is a lot of crime...but any murder at all should never be unreasonable.

that being said i love san francisco, i think its a wonderful place to visit, during the day, but you wouldnt catch me walking around there at night...i just dont trust it. but over the crime, the main reason id never want to live there...is all those damn hills. lol.

gotigers123-

Yes there may have been only 4 murders in the mission last year, but homicides as a whole were near record lows in the city last year. The previous year the mission saw over 20 homicides I believe.

I believe there has been 11 homicides thus far in 2010. BTW SF is no where near as bad as Detroit!

I'm sure people have asked you this before, but in all seriousness, why are you here when you clearly hate SF so much? Seems bad for the soul to live in a place you genuinely dislike as much as you do, that is if your severe dislike for SF is genuine.

What seems unreasonable to me is living in such a gun- and violence-obsessed culture as ours and believing that murder in any quantity is unreasonable. Unfortunate, yes. But unreasonable? Murder in American cities is entirely reasonable given our love of guns and proclivities to violence.

I live in SF because its close to my work and makes the commute easy. That is all! That does not mean I have to like that ugly, treeless mix of cracked concrete and asphalt called the outer sunset. The only redeeming feature of the area was low crime rate and it does not look like that is the case any more with two murders already this year. Yes as a newcomer, it is also perfectly valid to wonder why people pay so much to live in that neighborhood that is most definitely very third-world like (or worse?) in terms of amenities, architecture and physical infrastructure. I am truly curious about what motivates people to pay so much to live there! Why do people get so defensive and start name-calling whenever I mention the obvious??
