San Francisco will spend $72 million on street cleaning this year, yet it won’t be enough money to cover the costs.
The news doesn’t make a big enough deal about this. How are you going to declare yourself a sanctuary city when people pooping in the street is a multi-million dollar issue?
If a red state had a street poop problem all the talking heads on cable news and late night shows would be making constant jokes.
Maybe they should start arresting the violators and make them clean up their own poop!

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the city has spent more than $70 million cleaning feces and drug paraphernalia from streets and sidewalks this fiscal year, but it’s nowhere near what is needed to make San Francisco’s streets safe for pedestrians.
The city says crews are operating constantly, trying to get the “poop problem” that plagues San Francisco’s streets under control, but even as the city finds new and innovative ways for residents to report and avoid piles of feces on public sidewalks, the poop problem, they say, keeps growing.
The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien reported recently that a “poop map” of San Francisco’s dirty deposits shows a city under siege from feces. The interactive map of the San Francisco area shows all 118,352 incidents of public poop since 2011 and demonstrates the sharp increase in poop-related incidents that San Francisco has suffered over the last eight years.
No neighborhood is spared; although the “Tenderloin” district is the worst for sidewalk feces, posh areas like Nob Hill had their fare share of reports as well.
Now, the Chronicle reports, San Francisco is facing a unique development in the feces problem: homelessness appears to be abating and the tent cities responsible for most of the filth seem to be thinning out, thanks to new city efforts at housing at-risk populations in public buildings. “Tent camps” have shrunk by at least 10%.

The disgusting streets of San Francisco: People are pooping more than ever on the streets. There has been a huge surge in the number of feces left strewn across San Francisco’s streets, according to the city’s most recent data.
Reports have jumped to an alarming all-time record of 28,084 in 2018, up by more than five times the number reported seven years earlier.
