Post Office Offers Safe Haven for Tenderloin Drug Dealers

Randy Shawbyline‚ Jul. 18‚ 2012

If you go by the Post Office at Golden Gate and Hyde Streets in San Francisco, you will see a drug dealing operation offering the best of all possible work environments. Dealers slip in and out of the post office as police or those suspected of being police come near, using the federally funded facility as a safe haven. When a member of my staff tried to take a photo of the scene for this article, one of the many dealers assaulted him.

In February 2008, Beyond Chron reported that the Post Office at Golden Gate and Hyde was an “uninhibited trafficking point for drugs.” Over four years later, nothing has changed.
