Cops in San Francisco are now letting thieves walk away even if they literally catch them in the act of ripping off cars on city streets

At this point we could make another "Time to check in on how San Francisco's doing," but honestly at this point you know the answer:

It's a good time to be a thief in San Francisco.

That was the message city cops delivered in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday when they responded to a 911 call about a man cutting a catalytic converter from the underbelly of a car. The officers arrived to find the alleged thief at the scene of the crime, learned he was on probation for a previous theft and then let him walk off, car jack in hand โ€” even giving him directions to the nearest bus stop.

San Francisco cops after finding a thief literally in the midst of his thievery:

Oh don't worry though the SFPD is really on this one!

Sgt. Adam Lobsinger, an SFPD spokesperson, confirmed the outlines of the incident. Police from the Richmond station responded to a call about an in-progress theft from a vehicle at 3 a.m. Tuesday, located the man, talked to him and the witnesses and ultimately released the man.

"There was no sufficient probable cause to arrest the suspect," Lobsinger said. "Releasing a possible suspect ... does not mean the investigation is over. In fact, it means the investigation is just beginning."

San Francisco cops after literally letting a perp walk away no questions asked:

It's a great time to be in San Fran if you're a criminal! Otherwise not so much.
