SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— San Francisco Police displayed an array of high power weapons and ammunition Wednesday that were found in a homeless man’s car last month in Golden Gate Park.

Officers had prior contact with the man, but Chief of Police Greg Suhr ended up defending his department even though the suspect got past them with a large amount of weapons.

SF Police Chief Defends Officers After Homeless Man With Cache Of Weapons Slipped Through The Cracks

When police found a huge cache of guns, knives, a shotgun, 5,800 rounds of ammunition and camouflage gear in Robert Johns’ car on July 21st it was thought they may have diverted some kind of planned attack.

Also in that vehicle was a list of names of political leaders, reportedly including President Barack Obama.

It turned out to be Johns’ second arrest. In late June police took him into custody for having weapons in his car, but were more concerned about his mental health. John was evaluated and then later released.

Chief Suhr defended those officers when asked why they hadn’t done a full search of the car at that time.

“Obviously any firepower we can get off the street, we’d rather have sooner or later, but we do have protocols in place and I think the officers did a good job at the time in evaluating the person in crisis and the approach they took,”


...THIS is an "arsenal"?


And he's got a "list" of political figures he wants killed?

Doesn't everyone?

Problem with being homeless is, you stand out by how dirty and smelly you become and how much you linger around because you got no home. The answer of course is not to remain homeless long enough to attract enemy attention. How to do that in a depression/collapse? Squat, camp out in the woods, park at Wal-Mart. At least he sought to stay armed in these times.
