New legislation being proposed will allow police to confiscate bike parts from San Francisco residents without any probable cause. They only need to have five or more bike parts.
The proposal is another way the city specifically targets homeless people.
This legislation codifies the presumption that any “unhoused” person engaging in this element of the economy is guilty of theft.
Under this legislation, once the property is confiscated, homeless people must pay the impound fees, even if they are able to go through the process to prove the property is theirs.
Enjoy your Police State.
