"Beware of police abuse" Areas to Avoid Tip by Moonblazer

Areas to Avoid, San Francisco: 96 reviews and 24 photos

If you are planning on having a good time (safe and pleasant) in SF, watch out for both criminals and cops alike. Neither the cops nor the criminals have any good intention. Both want your money, lots of it. The cops in American cities have turned out to be no less dangerous than the criminals. In fact, they are worse because they hide behind the badge to rob you. The cops have been known to write citations left and write, right or wrong. They don't care. They just want money. And if you are a tourist, they know you don't have time to fight in court. So they write you a ticket for any thing in the book and expect you to pay for it. These days, a typical ticket costs at least $150 for the minimum infraction.

The best way to enjoy your vacation is to stay away from American cities. Go to Canada instead. It's more civilized there. Don't even think of Mexico unless you are in a suicidal mood.
