"La Policia Mi Amigos"

This part of SoMa isn't exactly the "tourist district", but "the sweep" could include this neighborhood too. A police van is parked on Howard Street near 12th. Why?

They better not sweep Modesto away. I go to the alley to check on him. His sleeping bag is gone. Perhaps he got word of the "sweep" and has hidden his (few) belongings. I probably shouldn't worry; the cops assigned to this part of SoMa know Modesto. "Police?" he says shrugging his shoulders, "they know me. Never bother me. They my friends".
