A term coined by SF street gangs for "rent-a-cops".. .specifically the kind of security police employed by condominium associations to patrol the perimeters of the condos. In SF, as expensive yuppie condos continue to be built at breakneck pace, they are infringing upon the traditionally socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods (or to put it another way, oftentimes you can now find million-dollar gated condo developments directly across the street from '60's-70's housing projects). Amazingly, these private security firms actually have some jurisdiction to stop and arrest citizens of the neighborhood, outside of the confines of the condo properties themselves.
"It wasn't the SFPD which pulled us over, it was beijing".
"Beijing detained us until the real cops came".
