    Does a picture of an injury car crash really require a hipster filter? Filters have become so ubiquitous that soon anything sans filter will be considered ‘obscure’

    I hate myself for posting this…

    SCUM. Really? A one year old kid has life threatening injuries and that’s the first thing to fly out of your keyboard…and you are posting about tortas? Nice. Go roam the Mission with your Tallboy in a paper bag.

    I take it the 1 yr old was not in a car seat. No way a kid in a secured car seat in the back could have life-threatening injuries from crashing into a fire hydrant. poor kid.

    This happend right outside of my building
    I called it in. I saw no one when I looked out of my window. I thought a drunk hit a hydrant, then left the scene. Next thing, I saw EMT doing chest compressions on a baby.
