Mission night patrol, 11/21/09

Saturday November 21st 2009, we the San Francisco Guardian Angels will be doing a night patrol in the Mission Dist. and we will have a reporter with us as a walk along to see what we do. All the angels who will being going on this patrol start arriving at the HQ around 3:00pm and even the reporter has arrived at this time, now we are ready to begin the schedule. We start out with our prebrief and our upcoming events, next we pick the patrol leaders and the teams for tonight's patrol. Scorpion will be the patrol leader for both teams, Hunter will be leading the shadow team, I J.D. will be the tail of the shadow team with the reporter, next we hand out all the radio's for communication, now we are ready for patrol.

Scorpion takes charge and we march to the bus stop, we all get on bus #14, we get to our stop which is the 16th street BART STATION where we all post up. The drug dealers take off, some went that away and some went this away because they know who we are, we did see money exchange hands but we did not see any of the drugs. Scorpion calls it, all clear lets move out, next we get to the alleys, Hunters Alley and Lovers Lane Alley, we pick up some dirty needles an put them in the containers that we carry, we pick up someones stash, a nice and almost new crack pipe, we smashed that to pieces.

Scorpion then marches the teams to Kid Power Park but it is locked, this is good because kids don't play in the dark, only bad guys. Scorpion then marches the teams back to the 16th street BART STATION where we all post up again, it is still all clear. Next we begin to march up Mission Street to the 24th street BART STATION, along the way we did stop at the Allioto Park it too was locked up, Scorpion then marches the teams back to Mission Street where we stop and take a few photos, but we do get to 24th street BART STATION where we all post up, no bad guys here.

Next Scorpion takes us down a new alley before we get to Travis Alley, but both alley's are all clear. Scorpion then decides to march down Capp Street, this street is a well known prostitute area, so we march, we check on a few homeless that where asleep on the sidewalks to see if they needed any medical attention, they advised to us that they where OK. Next Scorpion marches the teams back to Mission Street, this is where we turn right to march back down to 16th street BART STATION, before we get there we help a store owner move his fruit stand back inside his store, we helped a homeless man with his hand with first aid, we gave directions to tourist.

Next Scorpion calls it a night but decides that we all should go and get some STARBUCKS before we head back to the HQ, this was a great idea because we all like coffee.

Next we got to the HQ, we did our debrief and we all appreciate on how this night turned out because we all came back safe and we all did a great job as the San Francisco Guardian Angels.

We do wish to Thank Lisa for a great job as our walk along and that she is always wecome to come back anytime. Please do stay in touch, because people like you know how important it is to write what you see and not write what you don't.
