Musk Blasts ‘Violent Crime In SF’ After Tragic Murder Of Tech Executive

Twitter CEO Elon Musk is calling out San Francisco’s violent crime problem following the death of a major tech executive in what appeared to be a random attack.
Cash App founder Bob Lee, 43, was killed while walking through Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) district of San Francisco, California, in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday.

Lee, who left behind two young daughters, was stabbed twice in the chest in the supposedly safer area of the city, Rincon Hill. The tech executive managed to call 911 for help, and reportedly cried out on the phone that he’d been stabbed. In footage of the incident, Lee can be seen walking while holding his phone and his side.

RedState reports that Lee had “begged for help from a driver,” but the driver refused.
“Heartbreaking video from a nearby building showed him lifting his shirt to show a driver his wounds to prove that he needed help, but the driver drove away, and Lee collapsed to the ground,” the outlet noted. “Police arrived six minutes later and he was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, but he died.”
His death prompted renewed concerns about San Francisco and the problems that the city’s government has allowed to become out of control.

It appears that Lee had already realized how dangerous San Francisco was becoming, as he recently moved to Florida. Lee’s friend, mixed martial arts champion Jake Shields, told NewsNation that he had left the city after remarking about its decline — with skyrocketing crime and drug use.

“[Lee] did comment on San Francisco deteriorating, which is why he had just relocated to Miami,” Shields told NewsNation.

“He was a humble nice guy, you know? Talks about his kids a lot, family, just a generally good guy. He’s the kind of guy to give you phone calls and talk about issues and there’s not many people like that anymore,” Shields told ABC7 News.

However, Lee had to return to San Francisco last week to attend a business summit for MobileCoin, where he served as chief product officer.

While police have not yet revealed whether Lee’s murder was a random attack or if he was targeted, but Shields said it appeared to be random.

Meanwhile, Musk replied to Shields’ post on Twitter — shaming San Francisco for the “horrific” violent crime problem, and pointing out that the radical left district attorneys in the city will often set attackers free immediately after their arrest. He specifically demanded answers from San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins, tagging her in the tweet.

“Very sorry to hear that. Many people I know have been severely assaulted. Violent crime in SF is horrific and even if attackers are caught, they are often released immediately. Is the city taking stronger action to incarcerate repeat violent offenders @BrookeJenkinsSF?” Musk wrote.

Jenkins claimed during an interview with NBC that San Francisco was taking action to solve the crime problem.
