Insane, naked man assaults woman at BART station: SF’ers yawn as BART worker steps up
Harry Callahan: Well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard. That’s my policy.
The Mayor: Intent? How did you establish that?
Harry Callahan: When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher’s knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn’t out collecting for the Red Cross!

A video of a naked man running through a San Francisco BART station has gone viral.
The man, [Yeiner Garizabalo] seen screaming and doing acrobatics at the 16th and Mission Street station, ran after a woman and pushed her to the floor.
But there was another man captured in the video. And that man is now being hailed as a hero for coming to the woman’s defense when no one else would.
That man, Duane Bullard of Antioch, is a BART service worker.
Bullard said he saw the naked man about to punch the woman.

The people of San Francisco have an aggressively blase’ attitude toward public nudity and public displays of insanity. Witness the commuters who walked past a nude black man, wearing only a HUGE AFRO, posing and performing gymnastics in a BART station? Not only do they seem not to notice a nude, gesticulating Yeiner Garizabalo, they can’t hear the screams of the terrified woman he chases and assaults.
Admittedly, it is a good thing Dirty Harry didn’t show up and cap the unarmed Garizabalo–Another Oscar Grant incident we don’t need. And yet, we also don’t need a major US city which encourages loons to wag their weenies around and assault passersby–It speaks poorly not only of San Francisco, but the nation which tolerates it as well.
Fortunately, in Dirty Harry Callahan’s absence, BART employee Duane Bullard took charge until the cops showed up.
Kudos Mr. Bullard. You made someone’s day. -
