The San Francisco press has made some pretty serious journalistic blunders recently by publishing unsubstantiated reports by people who never actually looked at the SFPD crime database itself. This was recently published by Chronicle, SFist, and Huffington Post…and KRON-TV

kron.thc1a

The report came from Beyondchron and was published by Jonathan Nathan of the CCSRO, which is funded by Randy Shaw and Tenderloin Housing Clinic. The main claim that the first block of Turk Street has 35 times more violent crime than the rest of the city is blatantly false and misleading. 35 times compared to what? Geary and 35th Avenue?. The only reason why this report was made is because the Central City SRO Collaborative recently moved to Former McDonalds bookstore and now Randy Shaw’s organization is suddenly aware of crime, because now they have to actually see it with their own eyes

The fact, is, the CCSRO has been actively campaigning against the police and development for a very long time, so it’s extremely hypocritical for them to be suddenly aware of crime now in 2011. Furthermore, the claims that dealers come from across the bay on BART is also misleading, when many of the criminals come from within their own SRO housing, which has also been ignored by the same CCSRO for a very long time. The fact is that while some dealers come from Bayview, Potrero Hill, Fillmore, many dealers are based in the Tenderloin itself, and are housed there, for example, Hospitality House at 290 Turk

Nobody noticed that the report was never published, and no links posted. Instead, the press simply copied a summary without checking any facts and took Jonathan Nathan’s word for it

Well, folks you’re in for a a shock, because Turk street is not the most violent block in the city, nor does it have the highest overall crime rate. This post only deals with the ‘assault’ category and more posts will be made soon. Here’s a teaser, if anybody thinks they can answer it. The one single block with the highest reported crimes, over 1000, in 2010, is not in the tenderloin, nor is it South of market or the Mission. I bet you’ll never guess where it is (The first block of Turk isn’t even in the top ten for all crimes)

So here are the actual highest violent crime blocks in San Francisco, starting off with the same first block of Turk street (0 block), which is high, but not compared to the blocks that follow

complete stats after the jumpInstead of looking at 7 months from Crime Mapping like the CCSRO did, I looked at the actual database for the entire city for the 2010 year, and sorted by crime category ‘assault’ which is the violent crime category in 2010

The first block of Turk street had 53 assault type incidents in 2010. This is the lowest out of all of these blocks. This post is sorted from the lowest to the highest, with the most violent crime block in the city at the bottom. I’m sure this will surprise a bunch of people as to which blocks have more violent crime than Turk

the next higher block is, believe it or not, the 800 block of Market Street with 58 violent crimes in 2010. This is the same block as San Francisco Center, Nordstrom, and the Powell Street cable cars. It is probably the most crowded block in the entire city of San Francisco
