New San Francisco Mayor: “There’s More Feces… Than I’ve Ever Seen”

New San Francisco Mayor: “There’s More Feces… Than I’ve Ever Seen”. By Tyler Durden.

The new Mayor of San Francisco, London Breed, is beside herself at the abject squalor resulting from decades of “progressive” policies that encourage homeless residents to use the streets as their personal toilet.

In an interview with local station NBC Bay Area, Breed acknowledged that the poo-coated city she was born and raised in has a “huge problem” she aims to clean up.

“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed said. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

Unfortunately, her solution is to simply ask the city’s estimated 7,500 vagrants to kindly stop with all the street-squatting and clean up after themselves. Considering that 39% of homeless surveyed in San Francisco’s “homeless census” claim to have mental health issues, we’re not entirely sure how this policy will work. …

San Francisco’s “huge problem” isn’t restricted to poo either – the city is full of drug addicts who are more or less allowed to just do their thing. On Friday, two days after Breed was sworn into office, she went on a jaunt around the city in an afternoon stroll, where a guy was literally prepping to shoot up as she walked past. …

Over 16,000 feces complaints were logged with the City over a seven day period at the beginning of July, according to a local website and app that lets residents report none-emergency services …

Meanwhile, residents and tourists alike are turning green over the rampant squalor. Now, it’s starting to affect the city’s bottom line. Earlier this month, a major medical convention expected to bring in 15,000 visitors and drop $40 million in less than a week decided to permanently move to another city. …

It’s not hard to see why tourists would look for a nicer place to visit. The city is filled with homeless camps, open drug use in public areas, and petty crime. There were 31,000 thefts from vehicles reported in 2017, which works out to 85 per day. Garbage, drug needles, and human feces are ubiquitous sights and smells on the streets. The same week that the medical convention canceled, local news reported on a 20-pound bag of feces that was abandoned on the street.

Last month we reported on an Australian couple visiting the city who were shocked by what they saw after deciding to walk back to their hotel: “Is this normal or am I in a ‘bad part of town?’ Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene. Wife is scared to leave hotel now,” reads a Wednesday posting by Reddit user /u/nashtendo. …

People say, ‘I love your city, I love your restaurants, but I’ll never come back.'”…

Complicating matters is the fact that the city distributes nearly 5 million needles each year through various programs aimed at reducing HIV and other health risks for drug users who might otherwise share needles.

San Fransisco is now very left wing and PC. “Dirty Harry” with Clint Eastwood was set in SFO, so it wasn’t always like this. In the last few decades SFO discarded or did not enforce old fashioned laws against vagrancy and poor public behavior, let alone illegal drug use. Hardly anyone else is too surprised they now have this problem. It will be interesting to see how long it takes the lefties to get real about the problems they have created for themselves and their fellow citizens.
