    In the turnstile world of many big city beat cops, this takes the brass ring... type of case where he might find himself with a bullet in his head, and will go down as an unsolved murder forever...

    Cops from San Francisco's Central Station got a call the other day about a man who was screaming at women as they jogged at Aquatic Park.

    Officers arrived and spotted David Rosenberg, 48, peering over a large trash bin. As Officer Tom Cunnane approached, he noticed that the guy was sweating profusely and his eyes were rapidly darting about.

    When Cunnane asked what he was doing, Rosenberg replied, "Looking around, that's all."

    Cunnane then asked him if he was on parole or probation.

    "I'm on parole," Rosenberg replied.

    Cunnane ran a warrant check and found that Rosenberg was, indeed, on parole for grand theft.

    Not only that, he had 110 prior arrests.

    Rosenberg, who according to state records has served five stints in state prison, also had two packets of what appeared to be crack in his pocket.

    So the next stop was Central Station. But no sooner did Rosenberg cross the station's threshold than he clutched his chest and complained of pain.

    Thinking he might be having a heart attack, the cops called the paramedics. Within minutes, a fire engine and a medic van pulled up and whisked Rosenberg off to San Francisco General Hospital, with the cops in tow.

    After six hours and a battery of tests, it was determined that Rosenberg wasn't having a heart attack after all, and he was booked into County Jail for possession of crack - his 111th arrest.

    The state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says it put a hold on Rosenberg to keep him in jail. San Francisco sheriff's spokeswoman Eileen Hirst, however, said her department had no record of one.

    And so, within 48 hours, Rosenberg was released - no charges, nada.

    Now there's a warrant out for his arrest for a parole violation, but no one knows where he is.

    So, to summarize:

    Estimated time Officer Cunnane spent between the arrest, the hospital and the jail: 10 hours.

    Estimated cost of medics and ambulance call: $970.

    Estimated cost of the six-hour visit to the emergency room: $4,500.

    Estimated cost of the jail stay: $437.

    Chances of him doing it all over again:

    Bet on it.

    What do people expect, our prison's don't have room, this is why we see 100's of post about pot becoming a misdemeanor, and people go crazy and say no way. Well this is what we are going to get, at least this one was tame, most times it is a child molester being let out only to ruin another kids life because we need to keep the pot dealers off the street. Either people except prison's being built next to their houses and businesses or we start changing the laws to reflect the times and keep the worst of the scum off the streets!
