Receiving stolen property

A guy buys a bike from the street at 16th AND Valencia, he's amazed at the great deal, posts it for sale to Craigslist, and then is surprised when the San Francisco police come and take the bike and throw him in jail.
The police ignored what I was saying and said yah sure we hear it all the time. I was thrown into 850 Bryant the local jail here in San Francisco.

Jail is awful, it's a terrible place. The food is a smear of peanut butter on wax paper, with a couple of slices of bread, 2 packets of jelly, and a few small cookies. And a kindergardener size milk. I was starving the whole 4 days. I lost 10 pounds, and was severely depressed and was suicidal.

My cell mates was a person with 7 counts of terrorism, and 1 count of stalking, a dude who was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, a crack cocaine dealer, and a dude who took assaulted 7 black guys with a baseball bat, because he didn't like the color of their skin. These are not quality people, this experience was hell. My bail was $15, 000 dollars and my friend were not allowed to visit me.
Read the whole tale of woe at Craigslist.

    Any chance you still have it in cache?

  2. Wow...I wish I could have read more, but the post has been deleted. I guess it's better to buy on ebay than Craigslist? (At least you can show a receipt for the bike.)

  3. Ah rats, I knew I should have copied the whole thing :-(

  4. this dude is lying. If he is in the buy/sell business of bikes then he knows that a bike sold on the street at 16th/Valencia is stolen. Dirtbag.
