Deceased Bicyclist Featured in Student Newspaper

April 28, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- Another Google search turned up a solitary mention of Swaggard. The Golden Gate Xpress, the San Francisco State University student newspaper, had done a story in 2006 about vendors of the Street Sheet, a newspaper published twice a month by the Coalition on Homelessness to give homeless people an opportunity to express themselves in print and make money. One of the newspaper vendors profiled in the story was Swaggard, who’d been selling the Street Sheet for seven years by that point. Photographs show an African American man with graying hair, a mustache and a bright red sweatshirt. A recording of his voice accompanied the photographs and talked about how he felt ignored by passerby on the street.
