I live in San Francisco’s Sunset District. It’s the largest and most populated SF district, but it feels like you’re in the suburbs as opposed to being in the city. There’s not much crime and it’s generally safe to walk the streets at night. But apparently there are gangs and they protect their turf, and I’m right in the middle of a turf war. I know this because they tagged my recycling pin. They actually wasted paint and sprayed graffiti on it. I know that they have to protect their illegal drugs, gambling, and prostitution rackets, but I had no idea that my cans, bottles, and ripped up junk mail are just as valuable. I think I’m going to quit my job and get in on the action now that I know there’s money in illicit recycling. Does anyone want to join my recycling gang?
