A wild photo has emerged from San Francisco of a woman leaning out a car window with an AK-47 during an illegal exhibition of speed event as crime skyrockets in the City by the Bay.
“During an illegal exhibition of speed event at Barneveld & McKinnon, a passenger leaned out of a Cadi holding an AK47; see photo. SFPD Traffic Company personnel worked up a case, and seized this particular vehicle today,” the San Francisco Police Department tweeted along with photos. An exhibition of speed is a crime related to racing under California Vehicle Code 23109.
The photo was originally taken on July 11th. Police located the Cadillac on Wednesday and seized it. “Company personnel worked up a case, and seized this particular vehicle today,” police tweeted. They have reportedly not located the driver or the woman in the photo yet.
The incident occurred after the city reported 119 shootings, including both fatal and non-fatal altercations, during the first six months of 2021. There were only 58 this time last year.

“We’re almost double where we were in the last two years, and that is a huge concern,” Police Chief Bill Scott said to reporters last month.
San Francisco has been all over the news lately as viral videos show individuals brazenly shoplifting in broad daylight as security sometimes watches. Then they just walk out of the store. This has occurred at numerous Walgreens. It’s gotten so bad, a number of their stores have shut down in parts of the city due to theft.

Target asserts that San Francisco is the only city in America where they have decided to close some of their stores because of crime.
They aren’t the only store in San Francisco to make changes because of the continuous shoplifting either. After 10 p.m. the 7-Eleven on Drumm St. in the Financial District only does business via a metal door. First, you have to ring a bell to let them know you’re outside.
“This window was installed like two to three months ago because it was not safe. Sometimes they would break that glass of the door,” Manager Bobby Singh explained.
In one incident that occurred in July, ten people stole designer handbags from Nieman Marcus in Union Square and they were seen fleeing the crime in vehicles that were casually parked outside waiting for them. These types of crimes have massively multiplied in San Francisco recently.
Theft is not the only crime that is ticking upwards in various liberal-controlled cities across the nation. Murders have escalated by 16 percent in big cities according to the Council on Criminal Justice’s (CCJ) pandemic crime report.
Recent Council reports found a 30% surge in murders in major U.S. cities in 2020 compared to the previous year, and a 16% increase for the first half of 2021. Gun assaults (+5) and aggravated assaults (+9) were also up over the first half of 2020. https://t.co/HlqPxeXy7N 1/2

Crime in San Francisco is not only exploding, it is becoming far more brazen as the offenders have little to nothing to fear not only from store security but from police or city officials. The same thing is happening in Los Angeles.
And although the media would like people to think most crime involves guns, that purportedly isn’t the case. Photos such as the woman with the AK-47 in hand make great leftist talking points for the media. In reality, it shows that San Francisco has spiraled out of control due to lawlessness and lack of leadership.

Most criminals never get caught and those that do are almost immediately released back onto the streets due to liberal policies put in place by progressive bureaucrats.
Social media was all over the viral photo:

If you value your family’s safety, you will stock up on guns and ammo. Rampant lawlessness is headed your way. Police are useless because of liberal politicians.
