Cash App Founder Stabbed to Death in Criminal Cesspool San Francisco

'It’s real. Getting calls. Heartbreaking...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As San Francisco and other deep-blue cities find themselves overrun with violent criminals, even wealthy elites are no longer safe from the scourge.

On Tuesday morning, Bob Lee, founder of Cash App and the former chief technology officer of Square, was found dead after being stabbed just blocks from San Francisco’s trendy waterfront Embarcadero district, Fox News reported.

Lee, 43, was attacked at approximately 2:35 a.m., according to a San Francisco Police Department report. He was alive when police arrived on the scene and was rushed to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

The SFPD investigation is underway. No arrests have been made.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner has yet to identify the victim, but Lee’s friends have confirmed his death.

Lee achieved much in the tech world prior to his death, including helping Google found Android, helping found Square–a payment company that would later be renamed Block–and creating Cash App.

He also invested in tech startups, including SpaceX, Clubhouse, Tile, Figma, Faire, Orchid, Addressable, Nana, Ticket Fairy, Gowalla, Asha, SiPhox, Netswitch and Found, according to Fox News.

Several big names in the tech industry expressed their condolences and shared their personal grief.

“It’s real. Getting calls. Heartbreaking,” wrote former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey via the platform Snort.

Dorsey was joined by Figma CEO Dylan Field.

Lee’s death is the latest in a long string of violence that is occurring in San Francisco, which is so overrun that even Ukrainians are saying that they want to go home.

The woke city has also been plagued by epidemics of public defecation and homelessness, both of which have filled the city with trash and stench.

San Francisco also announced plans in January to begin offering publicly funded “overdose development centers,” where people can take hard drugs in a “safe space.”

“We are committed to opening overdose prevention sites in San Francisco, but due to legal restrictions, there remain significant challenges,” Mayor London Breed said, alluding to California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s opposition to the movement.

“Despite that, we are continuing to work with our nonprofit partners to find creative ways to open these sites, and these steps are critical for that to happen,” Breed said.
