Keeping the Peace in Haight

May 20th, 2013

5-20-13Bicycle Patrol Police Officer Brett Kaczmarczyk of the San Francisco Police Department has worked in the Haight/Ashbury neighborhood for 12 years. I’m sure he has seen just about everything. This haven of tourists and individuals, from every walk of life, are the very fabric of this bohemian enclave. Hats off to the men and women in blue who “keep the peace” here.
I have ridden The Kindness Bicycle down this street on a few occasions, talking with shopkeepers and locals. The consensus is, that it is all about the children. No matter who the individual may be, people want to see a safer world for children. Many of the homeless and transient souls who walk the streets here, have led difficult childhoods and are supportive of my ride, hoping that other children don’t have to endure such challenging upbringings.
