Rather than be in denial about what SF residents tell you, you can also 
check the SF Police Department CrimeMAPS website that allows one to get a 
report of various reported offenses at an address, intersection or 

SF Police Department CrimeMAPS:

I produced a report for Sept 21 to Oct 22 for a 0.25 mile radius around 
7th & Howard, and the report shows that there were 35 reported cases of 
stolen goods from a locked car.

The list of all reported offenses for the same period and location 
is long. There were a total of 143 reported offenses, which include 
rape, robberies, assault, stolen vehicles, and drug deals.

Keep in mind these are the cases that are in that database. There are 
probably some incidents that are not reported.

You can produce a report yourself, or contact me off-list and I can send 
you the reports I produced.
