How filthy is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.
“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” said teacher Adelita Orellana. “Sometimes they ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”
In light of the dangerous conditions, part of Orellana’s responsibilities now include teaching young children how to avoid the contamination.
A slip and fall because you accidentally stepped on a large mass of human poop is bad enough, but consider when the poop is dry it becomes airborne, then it can be inhaled and that is a deadly risk. The myriad of diseases associated with human feces can make your walking adventure in SF truly life threatening. The needles, the poop, the urine, ….think of the health risk, think of the children that are exposed to this every day. Isn’t it time for liberal San Franciscans to pony up, buy all these homeless an apartment and pay for their medical, food and clothing? After all, if it saves just one child isn’t it worth it?
The “liberal created” homeless problem can be traced back to 2008 when a noticeable number of transients from across the United States were encouraged to migrate to sunny California and the good life. CA had fair weather, a liberal state government, lots of safety nets and ample free stuff. Compared to most other States California was utopia! Over the years that followed CA’s soft touch reputation and liberal welfare policies have created a virtual exodus of bums to the golden state.
Currently one out of every three homeless now lives in California. San Francisco, long the bastion of liberalism, has been inundated with the homeless. They have seen the public works cleanup cost double in the last two years. Currently the City spends about 60 million dollars a year on cleanup and this does not begin to keep pace with influx of new homeless and new trash arriving every day.
