San Francisco’s New Mayor Says Her City Is Drowning In Human Waste: ‘There’s More Feces … Than I’ve Ever Seen’

by Andrew Kerr


San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday.

Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as the San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.”

Daily Caller News Foundation“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces”, KNTV’s investigative team reported in February after surveying the city’s streets.

“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” preschool teacher Adelita Orellana told KNTV. “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.”

There are about 7,500 homeless people living in San Francisco according to the city, which will spend nearly $280 million this year on housing services for the homeless.

Breed said San Francisco’s high cost of living cast the city’s homeless onto the streets.

“About 70 percent of the people estimated to be homeless in San Francisco were actually housed in San Francisco before they became homeless,” she said. “We have to make sure people who live here, [and] sadly, people who are homeless here, that they are also held accountable for taking care of our streets.”

It’s unclear how Breed will hold public defecators accountable. She said Friday that harsher penalties for offenders are not on the table.

Instead, she directed her criticism towards homeless advocacy groups, who she said aren’t doing a good enough job teaching their clients how to keep the streets clean.

“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” she said.

Breed promised to address the homeless problem in San Francisco, but some residents don’t have faith she can steer the ship in the right direction.

“Watch your backs — nobody else is,” The Fed Up Populace Campaign told the city’s residents in a full-page ad Friday. The ad was signed by an “anonymous disgusted female San Francisco resident (for now).”

    Tell Jerry Brown to have his illegal population clean it up

    Everything will work out fine once they ban plastic straws.

    San Francisco is America’s outhousee. With any luck an 8.2 magnitude earthquake will crumble into sticks and bricks. Follow that with a massive fire. Yes, history is known to repeat itself. 🙂

    Let’s do the math. Knock off some zeros and you have2.8 million for75 people. Just give one hundred thousand dollars to each person. That leaves 2.1 million. Now add your2 zeros back and you have 210 million dollars.this is how much money is being wasted or stolen

  5. Tom

    This is really a good sign, it suggests that the homeless in SF are being fed.

  6. stan

    I wonder if the people using needles and are crapping and peeing in the streets are liberals, I suspect that they are.

  7. Traditional Thinker

    Take a good long look America. This is what we will become under democrat/socialist leadership.. What’s more shocking is that these corrupt immoral nation killers know this and actually want this for the country. Conspiracy theory? No. Merely Fact

    What exactly is wrong with what’s happening in California? Is this not what the liberals have fought for so long? Free love, sex, drugs? Why the complaints? No God, no rules, no order? Is this not the design you’ve created in rebellion against normalcy? You’ve got it going on now CA. A role model for the rest of the country. Trend setters if you will. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, or rather lack there of. Genius!

    1. Ah, you forgot to mention the communist gun control laws in Kalifornia. It is easier for a gangbanger to “get” a gun than for law-abiding Kalifornians, who must undergo waiting periods, even after passing the background checks. Gangbangers can also get plenty of ammunition on the black market too, while Kalifornians must undergo a background check just to purchase ammunition. Oh, and getting a concealed carry permit is impossible for most Kalifornios. Everything evil, deplorable or evil that spread to the rest of the country —-free sex, the gay movement, assault weapon bans——had their genesis in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia..

    Where do I start… You know, there are not enough words to begin to describe the idiot liberal leadership and the Hollywood lost. However, I did see something very encouraging yesterday, the movie San Andreas.
