San Francisco murder map

SF Gate provides this cheery map, on which each pin represents a homicide. What a lot of them!

Could violent criminals be going into upscale neighborhoods and mowing down the ruling class? Let’s compare that map to this one, which I posted last week, showing San Francisco housing prices. Hmmm.

    holly crap! That is quite a scary map. For the year of 2007 the map shows 97 murders in that particular area. That is 2 murders a week! Speaking of fair housing opportunity and proper disclosure… how you gonna explain this to your client if you’re in real estate business… wow.
