Diseased Streets
NBC, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/20/2018 4:51:07 AM

How dirty 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.As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by

Sad and scary. San Francisco used to be a gorgeous place to visit.

Ah yes, we may ridicule these lefty loons in charge out there in San Franfreako, but the most important thing is...They Caaaare! Yep, to hell with the taxpayers and the normal people (if there ARE any), all caring MUST be directed to the most useless dregs around.

Doesn´t it ever occur to liberals that the more free candy you hand out that it draws more of the ´Gimmee Crowd´ to glom onto that free candy?

It is absolutely astonishing, the human waste, the stench, the tent cities in alleys, the once vibrant commercial areas that are now so dangerous you don´t walk through them in the daytime. The arts venues are immediately adjacent to the worst areas and getting to and leaving an event has increasingly become a nighmarish experience. Also, when the truth gets around to sites like tripadvisor, SF is finished as a tourist attraction. The Supervisors (SF´s City Council) plan to raise money for 1000 additional beds for the homeless and when they do so, thousands of new homeless will come to SF. The nicer the city makes it for the homeless, the more homeless flock to the city.

FTA: “We´re not going to make a huge dent in this problem unless we deal with some underlying major social problems and issues,” she said. “There´s a human tragedy happening in San Francisco.”

Well duh! Problem is that libs never want to deal with the underlying problems. If the people of SF won’t demand action, then there is nothing that can be done. Evidently they are content to allow their city become a cesspool of filth. So be it.

This tells the tale: Years ago when I was going to University of Cal, Sacramento, I felt quite honored to have one of my classes in a new hall that had just been built- It was beautiful, had these gorgeous wood paneled walls and I would go on and out and just marvel at the beauty of the wood. One day I was leaving class and this hippy dressed student came rushing in pushing her bicycle. She slammed the bike against the wall gouging the luxurious paneling. I hollered at her- "What the Hell? Bikes are supposed to be kept outside, look what you´ve done to the paneling?"

She hollered back, "F You, Man! What are you? The bike police? Besides, it´s not my paneling!"

That gal is probably SF City Council woman or a judge now.

I was there twice, about 10 years ago, and found it dirty and sad then. And this was in the fancy tourist area! I was walking around homeless men, sleeping on the street. I found it ironic that such a "compassionate" state couldn´t take care of its own.

As is the case with water always going to the lowest level, the homeless will always be drawn to communities that encourage their lifestyle. Typically, compassion does not pull them up into society, but it makes them more comfortable hanging on the edge of society. If you provide shelter in cold weather and daily food....they will come. If you give to the young man at the red light with a sign that he needs food, there will be another one on the other side of the street next week. They flock to the cities that cater to them, and San Fran is an example of the end result. Unfortunately they will not flock to the city that provides temporary shelter and job training and requires hygiene for admission to classes.

If San Fran government wants to run a zoo for the homeless they could restrict it to Alcatraz, one way trip to the island and food dropped in by parachute. They could attract tourist dollars by running boat tours around it with daily specials watching them all fight at feeding time. The taxpayers there are either crazy or stupid. I guess that defines most democrats.

This is the ´success´ that you get when you decide that battling drug abuse is ´failing´.
When you hear some moron spouting off about ending the ´war on drugs´, this is exactly what they are trying to bring to your neighborhood.

The pastor of SF City Impact Church, Roger Huang, fasted and prayed in front of City Hall for a month to get the streets around his church cleaned. It worked, and the mayor even brought him out a Gatorade.

Many big cities have this problem. It doesn´t hit them in the pocket book because many of these cities have set up industrial parks outside downtown so they continue to rake in revenue. They might clean up their act when downtown becomes too crime ridden for anyone to come there or when downtown turns into a bunch of gutted falling down buildings.

I haven´t been there since shortly before 9/11/2001 and was shocked at the city´s decline, worn-outness, and sheer dirtiness compared to the late 1970s-early 1980s which were my prior visits. I remarked to my companion on the change and that we should head back to Southern California fast. I´m from NYC so I know from dangerous and dirty--after Giuliani the difference versus Dinkins was astonishing.

Michael Savage is always railing against the dirt and germs--one wonders why he still lives there. (Some of it has seeped into his brain because of his calls for gun control.)

Born and raised in Santa Clara county which is now called Silicon Valley. In the 50´s, used to drive up to the city to visit my aunt, uncle and cousin. We used to play in the street and go on errands even when it was getting dark.It was safe. They were going to the "country" when they came to visit us. Santa Clara county was orchards, ranches and farms. Breaks my heart.

I truly feel for those like #24 who are as trapped in that private hell as Lot was stuck in Sodom. However, it is grossly unfair & mean to judge all of San Francisco --- and all the residents --- by one or two sections of the big city that have gone to hell in a hand basket. Or assume all the residents support what has happened to their beautiful city or even like the morons who did it.

I had this issue myself while living in Manhattan. When traveling for business, which I did often, everyone out of town felt sorry for me because of the crime in Harlem, Bed-Stuy or the South Bronx. I lived in Murray Hill, which was quite nice. And I despised Dinkins.

Hang in there San Franciscans who are conservative! We got rid of Dinkins and got Giuliani who turned it all around and saved NYC.

Whatever the beauty of San Francisco, it´s totally eclipsed by every foul ideology that has made it uninhabitable for average, decent Americans. Blame it on the locals who decided to embrace all that, dragging the city into the tank. No amount of Google money can deliver any place from the results of liberal policy. The only thing the elites can do is isolate themselves in their enclaves, but as we witness now, even there the consequences will reach them. Not IF but WHEN.

Haven’t been to SF for decades. Glad to have been there for special weekends - staying at the Clift and enjoying the wonderful L’Etoile restaurant.

Just found this on a Facebook page:

1973 – 1989 - L´Etoile Restaurant on Nob Hill with Peter Mintun at the piano. Herb Caen wrote an item in his column about Hoagy Carmichael going over to the bar to hear Mintun. It would be the first of over 100 gossip items about Mintun in Caen’s widely-read column for the Chronicle. Throughout the 1970s and ‘80s, L’Etoile became synonymous with international sophistication. Mintun created a personal musical mood that attracted locals, visitors and celebrities alike, ranging from Liberace to Alistair Cooke, who would eventually became friends with Peter Mintun, Pianist. Today, Peter lives and works in New York and is an editor for Dover Publications, specializing in historic piano music.


The restaurant was beautiful, elegant, and Mintun added so much.

That was the old San Francisco.

#38, San Fran has been on the descent for decades, never had a Giuliani-type respite from the plethora of petty crimes and anti-social behaviors.

But NYC may now be rapidly approaching those levels. Recently deBlasio decriminalized public urination.

Sanitation laws were passed in civilized countries when the connection between filth and plagues and pesitlences was made. --and, don´t forget, rats LOVE filth.

The 60s Flower Children came and stayed. They brought or firmly entrenched an ideology which encourages lawlessness and moral vacuuousness and the entire drug culture.

Furthermore, the Dems encourage the importation of Third Worlders, many of whom have never seen a toilet or seen running water. THEY might have immunity to diseases, but their new host countrymen do not.

So, once the "homeless" are placed INTO facilities, who´s going to clean them? Why have they opened 3, but CLOSED 2? Did they become uninhabitable? Have you ever seen public housing, or smelled them?

When people are high, they don´t give a damn. ANY drug (including booze) will eventually render you apathetic and stupid.

So, what exactly is "permanent housing" for the homeless? And they need another $25million, to start...

Until the people of the State, San Fran, of the Country confront the truth about the utter failure and desructiveness of socialism and associated amorality, there will be NO solution of any kind.

Someone needs to do a photo journalistic survey of all these Dem-run cities. It might open some eyes to reality.

Some of our older posters may remember when every larger community had a "county poor farm" where the homeless would live and grow gardens and maybe work piece meal.

But the hippies, LIEberals and the ACLU decided to take us to court and have the very idea of "vagrancy laws" determined to be unconstitutional. For the police to hassle a person simply because they didn´t have a job or a home is just not fair!!

Then the hippies, LIEberals and the ACLU decided to take us to court close most of the mental institutions...just because someone doesn´t fit your definition of sanity is not fair to keep them locked up and forced to medicate!!

So now we have filth on the streets and sidewalks.

"Don´t call it Frisco!" Those were an often-heard, good-natured four words while I was there. All told, I spent about a decade of my adult life in San Francisco. Back then, people felt privileged to be a local in a unique, world-class tourist city, "The City By The Bay." Every neighborhood had storybook charm. It was a special place. What has taken its place has become unspeakable. Unless you´re into disgusting, vomitous, four-letter words. Alas!

It was an extraordinary sight—as the queen and Meghan Markle sat on chairs watching a performance by a group of schoolchildren on Thursday, Meghan leant over and whispered something in her grandmother-in-law’s ear, and the monarch chuckled. Her Majesty then made a canoeing action, in friendly imitation of the kids’ performance, and laughed again. The queen has a fairly simple policy on public emotion which is to not show it, ever, and this is not because she is some unthinking adherent to the principle of the stiff upper lip, but just because it makes life simpler, and avoids people being upset

Liza Minnelli is lucky no one bought her Andy Warhol collection two years ago — she’ll end up much richer by selling off the paintings one by one. A source in Switzerland reports one of Minnelli’s 22 Warhols — a silk-screen of her mother Judy Garland — was just sold by Larry Gagosian for $7 million to an unnamed buyer. It was one of three portraits of Judy in Liza’s collection, which also includes four portraits of herself and three of her father Hollywood director Vincente Minnelli. I reported two years ago that Liza was asking $40 million for the entire collection, trying

It seems like a day doesn’t go by without some female high school teacher getting arrested for having sexual relations with an underage student. The story line is always the same.

Invariably the teacher is quickly and unceremoniously condemned, fired from her job and arrested. This sequence of events always seemed appropriate.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body. In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority backing. This Haley amendment

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest.

The report, issued Thursday, shows that Hillary Clinton – like her husband, former President Bill Clinton – has gotten away with things most people could never do without being punished. The stark double standard substantiates the growing public distrust of an FBI gone rogue. Clearly, the Clintons believe there is one set of rules and laws for them, and a different set for everybody else. As the proud grandson of a career FBI agent, I’m frustrated to see the people in the FBI who we have entrusted with so much power failing to act properly, without taking political considerations into account. Never has the need for uninhibited oversight of a

Recent social media posts by tourists visiting San Francisco casts a troubling light on the City by the Bay over its homeless issue, open drug use and filthy streets. Since the beginning of the year, reports have surfaced of hypodermic needles dotting the streets, piles of human feces and expanding shanty towns for the increasing homeless population -- and now tourists are noticing, SFGate reported. "Is this normal or am I in a ´bad part of town?´” an Australian Reddit user asked the San Francisco Reddit community Wednesday. “Why is this city so terrifying?” a Canadian visitor asked on Reddit Sunday.

Charles Krauthammer once told me, “The way I look at life is that it´s all an accident. Everything.” We were in the lobby of the Hall of States, blocks from the Capitol, having finished the “Special Report” panel upstairs at Fox News Channel. I was somewhat taken aback, though I knew immediately it would stay with me forever. Charles, after all, was looking up at me from his motorized wheelchair, confined to it for life after a freak accident at age 22 paralyzed him from the neck down. None of this is meant to be and there is no design,

Criticism of James Comey is nothing new—it’s one of the few things that both Republicans and Democrats can agree on. Which made the headline takeaway of the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report—that Comey deviated from FBI norms—something less than a surprise. But the Comey story isn’t even close to being the most interesting or instructive finding by the IG. Perhaps the most shocking information in the IG’s report is the revelation that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were not the only amorous agents with a habit of texting. There were also “Agent 1” and “Agent 5,” who were involved in the Clinton

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest. Macklin’s last words were, “Sorry, bro,” according to the police report. The teen died on the pavement. He did not have a gun on

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

Most of what happens inside Apple Park, the iPhone company´s stunning new headquarters, is top secret. But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday. He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him — just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. Cook has previously cited

The White House called MSNBC´s Joe Scarborough´s comments comparing the actions of immigration law enforcement officers at US border crossings to those of Nazis ´appalling´ on Friday. Scarborough pointed out while hosting ´Morning Joe´ on Friday that federal agents at US borders have reportedly used tactics similar to those used by Nazi soldiers during World War II to separate Jewish families, in saying children are being taken to ´shower´ and never returning with them. ´This is the type of inflammatory and unacceptable rhetoric that puts a target on the backs of our great law enforcement,´ White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- An Indiana hospital for the Department of Veterans Affairs temporarily removed its military flags to put up an LGBT pride flag Tuesday. Some veterans in Fort Wayne, Indiana arrived at the VA hospital Tuesday morning and noticed all the military flags had been removed. On one of the flagpoles was a rainbow flag, in honor of LGBT pride month, WPTA in Fort Wayne reported. Some people in the area questioned the VA´s decision.

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Bill Maher suggested there should be a movement for people who have been victims of police brutality after a discussion on his show about police brutality. During a segment on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher called out abusive police officers and the people who protect him on Friday. “We need to stop saying most cops are good like we know that to be true,” Maher said. “I hope it’s true, but I need some evidence, unlike cops.” The HBO show host continued and said the violence exposed by the people who post the videos on social media is a problem. He questioned the kindness of police and questioned why there are

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
