Mr. Shotgun writes “According to CBS, ‘Hundreds, or even thousands, of drunk driving convictions could be overturned because the San Francisco Police Department has not tested its breathalyzers, officials said Monday. For at least six years, the police officers in charge of testing the 20 breathalyzers used by the Police Department did not carry out any tests on the equipment. Officers instead filled the test forms with numbers that matched the control sample, said Public Defender Jeff Adachi, throwing countless DUI convictions into doubt.’ Apparently this has happenedbefore.”
zacharye writes “This whole lost iPhone 5 prototype story just got whole lot more interesting. According to SF Weekly, six investigators claiming to be members of the San Francisco police department descended upon one Bernal Heights, San Francisco man’s home in search of a lost iPhone 5 prototype that CNET originally reported had been left in a bar. The scary part? The SFPD does not seem to be aware of such an investigation. Instead, it appears as though they may have actually been members of Apple’s security team allegedly impersonating police officers.” So far this claim seems to be developing solely through media communications; in order for the SFPD to start an investigation, the man whose house was searched would need to speak with the police directly.
The San Francisco Giants won the World Series earlier this evening and of course the fan celebration has at this point devolved into multiple riots, which you can now follow on Twitter at the hashtag #SFRiot.
According to the Twitter stream, several thousand people have taken over 5th and Mission Street, and there are currently multiple bonfires at 3rd and King Street. I’m also seeing reports of people throwing beer bottles at police as well as a stabbing at 4th and King Street, which police apparently have under control.
