Good grief: San Francisco rebrands convicted felons as “justice-involved persons” and ex-cons as “returning residents”

You can’t make this stuff up. While San Francisco literally turns into a sh*thole, the bureaucrats focus on nonsense that does nothing to address increased crime, homelessness, and rats, drugs and feces littered throughout the streets of San Francisco.

Elections have consequences.

From Daily Mail: San Francisco has passed legislation demanding that convicted felons be referred to as ‘justice-involved persons’ in an attempt to sanitize the language used to describe criminals.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors quietly passed the resolution last month with a unanimous vote, directing all city agencies and departments to adopt its sterilized list of terms.

‘Dehumanizing language like “prisoner,” “convict,” “inmate,” or “felon” only serve [sic] to obstruct and separate people from society and make the institutionalization of racism and supremacy appear normal,’ the legislation reads.

San Francisco, struggling with an epidemic of drug addiction and homelessness, has the highest property crime rate of any big city in the U.S. according to FBI data.

Among other changes, the legislation insists that juvenile delinquents to be described as ‘young persons impacted by the justice system.’

Instead of inmates, the Board of Supervisors recommends ‘currently incarcerated persons’.

Ex-cons should be referred to as ‘returning residents,’ according to the legislation. Rather than drug addicts, cops and prosecutors should speak of ‘persons with a history of substance use,’ the resolution decrees.

And instead of ‘citizen’ or ‘illegal alien,’ the Board of Supervisors urges the use of the words ‘person’ or ‘individual.’

The resolution, which was proposed by Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, passed the 11-member board with a 10-0 vote, with Gordon Mar absent.The non-binding resolution was returned unsigned by Mayor London Breed.

Breed ‘doesn’t implement policies based on nonbinding resolutions, but she is always happy to work with the board on issues around equity and criminal justice reform,’ her spokesman Jeff Cretan, told the San Francisco Chronicle.

However, the San Francisco police and district attorney are already rushing to adopt the changes. Police spokesman David Stevenson told the Chronicle that the department has ‘made our members aware of the resolution and are researching possible impacts on operations and communications.’

The language resolution makes no mention of new terms for victims of crime.

Appears that San Francisco cares more about their homeless criminals than law-abiding citizens

Would you trust that this guy will show up for his trial?/SF Police Dept. photo

Just like Seattle, it appears that San Francisco has no desire to hold the homeless accountable for their criminal actions.

Both demorat-run cities allow the homeless to rule the streets with no real consequences for their actions. No wonder both cities have become such sh*tholes.

The latest out of San Francisco? A 25-year-old man – with no permanent address in San Francisco – was released from jail after attacking a woman at the front door of her condo building. He was charged with false imprisonment, attempted robbery and misdemeanor battery.

As reported by Katie Dowd at the SF Gate, the perp is to return to court next month.

Um yeah, you can be assured he’ll return for his trial next month. He’s also ordered to stay away from the victim.

According to the victim, police took 30 minutes to arrive. Yet SF Police say they responded in 22 minutes.

The victim tweeted the following to Gov. Newsom:

“@GavinNewsom Please watch this video of me getting attacked at my front door less than 72-hrs ago. The man who attacked me was released this morning because the judge, Christine Van Aken believes that this man is not a danger to our community. “PLEASE SAVE OUR CITY!!”

Attention Nancy: San Francisco saw 150 percent increase in fentanyl-related deaths last year

Nancy Pelosi’s pinned tweet (as of Saturday afternoon):

“House Democrats have accomplished so much already. So far we have taken action to… Defend Americans’ access to affordable health care and prescription drugs.”

As reported by Fox News: The number of deaths from fentanyl overdoses in San Francisco jumped by nearly 150 percent last year, according to a report by the city’s public health department made public this week.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 89 deaths in the city were attributed to fentanyl overdoses, up from 37 deaths in 2017. By comparison, 70 people died from prescription opioid overdoses and 60 deaths were attributed to heroin overdoses.

A preliminary report released in June attributed 57 deaths to fentanyl overdoses, but health officials told the Chronicle they had expected that figure to increase as the city medical examiner determined the cause of more deaths.

The city has experienced an uptick in fentanyl-related deaths since 2008, when five deaths were reported. In 2010, six deaths were attributed to the drug, which killed 22 people in 2016.

It’s not a huge surprise to see this, although it’s certainly disappointing and sad to have lost this many lives in the city,” Dr. Phillip Coffin, the director of substance use research for the San Francisco Department of Public Health, told the Chronicle. “Unfortunately, there is no locality that can withstand the introduction of fentanyl without some increase in mortality.”

In its legal form, fentanyl is used to treat patients recovering from surgery. However, the synthetic drug is often mixed with other drugs like heroin and cocaine in powder form for those looking to get high, KTVU reported in June.

“In San Francisco, that’s how fentanyl came to us. In counterfeit pills at first a few years ago. At this point it is its own drug supply,” Kristen Marshall from the Drug Overdose Prevention & Education Project told the station.

Fentanyl is a highly addictive opiate that is 100 times more potent than other prescription opioids like morphine, according to the paper.

Liberal utopia of San Francisco: Car break-ins double at Golden Gate parking lot

Feces, needles, drugs, rats and car break-ins! Aren’t you in a hurry to plan your next vacation to San Francisco?

Even if this article claims that break-ins have declined, it must just be for this year. My blog post from last September told a difference story: “San Francisco had more than 30,000 car break-ins reported last year. The number of break-ins has tripled since 2010.”

From SF Gate: Signs that urge, “PREVENT AUTO THEFT – TAKE YOUR VALUABLES WITH YOU,” are posted throughout the parking lot at the Golden Gate Bridge. But despite the warning signs, car break-ins are on the rise at the iconic San Francisco tourist attraction, which brings in more than 10 million visitors per year.

As first reported by KGO, there has been a spike in auto burglaries at the bridge’s parking areas. Seventy-one incidents were reported in just the past seven months — more than double last year’s total of 38, according to Golden Gate Bridge law enforcement.

Burglars tend to target vehicles with visible personal belongings, like suitcases, purses, backpacks, and other possessions of potential value. Tourists who come to visit the Golden Gate Bridge are especially easy targets.

This uptick in auto burglaries at Golden Gate parking lots contrasts with a city-wide decline in car break-ins, as reported by The Chronicle. Even so, this downward trend translates to 1,932 vehicle break-ins across San Francisco in the month of June alone.

Often, the auto burglars get away with the crime, too. The Chronicle found that only 2% of car break-in cases result in arrest.

Drugs, needles, feces and rats, oh my! Experience cocktails at a San Francisco bar while rats crawl around you

From Fox News: San Francisco wants to show you its creepy past by making you drink with live rats.

The San Francisco Dungeon in Fisherman’s Wharf is launching an immersive experience about the City by the Bay’s “weird, twisted, dark” history — and that includes having live rats “scurry all over you” for some reason.

The tourist hot spot known for its interactive tours through history, featuring live actors and thrilling special effects, is opening its Rat Bar as the “next iteration of what the Department of Public Health” will allow, according to a press release.

The Dungeon had previously offered a tour with something called a “Rat Café.”

“Let’s be honest — pastries and coffee were nice and all when we hosted the Rat Café but that was a lot of work. We thought, ‘F it. This time, get drunk, see our show, touch rats and get drunk some more,’” says Matthew Clarkson, regional head of marketing for West Coast Midway Attractions, North America, Merlin Entertainments Group.

After the history lesson, guests are shuffled off to the Rat Bar where they are able to touch and hold live rodents provided by the Ratical Rodent Rescue for 30 minutes.

The strange pop-up will begin June 13 and run through June 15, offering guests a 60-minute “journey into the dark place where live rats run free and the booze flows like water.”

Those who purchase tickets will be given “Ama-RAT-o Sours” made with Amaretto, a citrusy mix and a “rat’s tail” garnish, before being taken on a ride learning about the gold rush, Chinatown gangs, shanghaiing, Alcatraz and, appropriately, the plague.

Rat or San Francisco-enthusiasts will want to buy their tickets fast, however, as the company stated their last rat pop-up sold out in 45 minutes.

Liberals now pushing an eco-friendly, emission-free mode of transportation: pogo sticks!

Coming soon to San Francisco…hop, hop, hop your way around the feces!

From KOMO: Those who were fans of the childhood classic pogo sticks might get their chance to hop around again, as a company plans to bring “pogo-share” to cities across the globe this summer.

Swedish-based Cangoroo announced on its website that it would be launching in the summer of 2019 in San Francisco, Stockholm, Paris, London and Malmo, in an apparent play to pit pogo sticks against the increasingly-popular e-scooter mobility option.

They advertise the pogo sticks as fun, healthy, convenient and 100% emission free.

“We’re bringing shared pogo sticks to every street corner of the world,” the company said.

“Literally jump on a Cangoroo anytime and cruise your way through the city.”

Needles, feces & drugs, oh my! SF Board of Supervisors rewarded with 12% raise

The “professionals” on the SF Board of Supervisors

Imagine being so handsomely rewarded for turning your once beautiful city into a sh*thole. It pays well to be a public servant…

From SF Gate: San Francisco’s supervisors will be getting a 12% raise this year, more than three times the size of those being given to other elected officials and city employees.

The raise was approved by a 3-1 vote of the Civil Service Commission on Monday and represents a $15,016 pay hike, bringing the board members’ salaries to $140,148 this year — plus benefits.

“I felt the boost was appropriate to bring the pay more in line with the responsibilities of the job,” said Commission President F.X. Crowley, a former labor leader who ran for the board himself in 2012.

The supervisors’ pay hike, however, was far above the $5,005-a-year raise recommended by the Civil Service Commission staff.

The staff report, which surveyed cities and counties statewide, recommended they receive the same 4% raise this fiscal year as other city workers and elected officials — that would have given them about $125,000, plus benefits. Most city workers are getting 11% spread out over three years.

Instead, the commission voted to give the supervisors the 12% boost this year, with annual cost-of-living increases in succeeding years.

Under the City Charter, every five years the commission sets the salary for the supervisors and other elected officials.

Given that the annual cost-of-living increase has been running at about 3% a year, the supervisors could see a total pay raise of 24% or more over the next five years.

In a surprise move, Board of Supervisors clerk Angela Calvillo presented the commission with the salary survey she requested from a Board of Supervisors budget and legislative analyst.
The survey compared the supervisors’ pay to supervisors in other counties. The analyst also measured their pay in relation to the counties’ overall budget.

Calvillo said she did not share the report with the board.

Crowley said he looked at both surveys and concluded the commission staff’s recommendation was “artificially low” for a county with an annual $11 billion budget. “That’s a billion dollars a supervisor,” Crowley said. “We want professionals making professional decisions.”

What demorats can do for a city: San Francisco’s homeless crisis and opioid epidemic

Maybe it’s not so much what demorats can DO for a city..it’s what they CAN’T do to solve problems.

Because if taxpayer money solved the problem, it would have been solved decades ago.

Liberal utopia of San Francisco: People are pooping more than ever on the streets of San Francisco

The streets of San Francisco…

Demorats have turned San Francisco into a literal sh*thole.

From SF Gate: One of America’s wealthiest cities has a huge problem with public poop.

Between 2011 and 2018, San Francisco experienced a massive increase in reported incidents of human feces found on public streets.

In 2011, just over 5,500 reports were logged by the San Francisco Department of Public Works; in 2018, the number increased to more than 28,000.

The government watchdog Open the Books documented the sharp increase over time in a stunning chart, first spotted by the BuzzFeed editor John Paczkowski.

Notably, the chart of only documented reports — the actual amount of feces on San Francisco’s streets is likely even higher than these statistics suggest.

“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed told NBC in a 2018 interview. “That is a huge problem, and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

San Francisco has struggled with a feces problem for years. The city even employs a “Poop Patrol” that attempts to keep the streets clean and focuses on the Tenderloin neighborhood.

But the problem is bigger than just keeping the streets clean — the issue appears to be related to the city’s struggle to accommodate its homeless population amid skyrocketing rent prices and a decreasing supply of affordable housing.

A 2017 survey of San Francisco’s homeless population counted nearly 7,500 people living on the street. That population faces limited public resources, and public bathrooms are no exception.

Whether the Poop Patrol is able to reverse the trend on San Francisco’s streets remains to be seen, but there’s an indication that the crew is a bandage on a problem much bigger than dirty streets.
