On July 30, 2005, the San Francisco police responded to a call about a suspicious-looking suitcase left on the corner of 9th and Judha. Thinking it was a bomb, they closed off the area for 3 hours.
Luckily it was a false alarm, but it did make me wonder. Everyday people leave stuff out in the open like that on street corners. I wonder if San Francisco neighborhoods will shut down every time this happens.
