468 - Crime Topography of San Francisco
- Many maps peak in the Tenderloin District (in the north-east). \n
- Some crime is extremely concentrated (e.g. narcotics), others are more spread out (e.g. vehicle theft); \n
- Prostitution arrests mainly occur around Shotwell Street, one of the frankly quite numerous toponyms in San Francisco that can be interpreted in a lewd manner. \n
- A valley dividing the peaks in the Mission and the Tenderloin is the location of the 101 freeway. \n
If only Messrs. Douglas and Malden had known about this back in the day…\n

Political activism may get people invested in politics, and affect urgently needed change, but it comes at the expense of tolerance and healthy democratic norms.
