I talked to two cops handing out violations to drivers failing to yield to pedestrians right around Glen Park BART this morning. Suggested better use of their time would be to set up shop at night in GP Village... blank stare. They didn't even KNOW about the multiple robberies, stabbing, etc. Huh? Had no idea what I was talking about......

He's better, Jennie says, but she can't shake the fact that one of the knife blows nicked his liver and her 53-year-old husband nearly bled to death on the store floor.
