The Tenderloin's community court is all hugs and kisses for the neighborhood's minor-infraction offenders. The court's modeled on a similar one in Manhattan, and is meant to help people get on their feet and help themselves, rather than repeatedly jailing them. Do well and get a $10 Safeway gift card, maybe even a round of applause from the courtroom. That's... different. [SFGate]
