The streets of San Francisco have become so infested with human feces that if you were to place onto a map all the recorded cases since 2011, the city would appear to be covered with it from top-to-bottom.
“A new map pinpointing the locations where human feces are reported to have been found in the California city since 2011 shows San Francisco has a staggering problem with the stinky stuff,” Fox News reported. “Nearly every city block has had a poop sighting in recent years as the city grapples with homelessness, according to data compiled by Open The Books.”
As the map below shows, parts of the city have been deluged with so many reports of human fecal matter in the streets since 2011 that they have been blacked out entirely, as if they were the city’s no man’s land; the largest area of complaints being on the streets where both Twitter and Uber are headquartered:
“The details of the complaints that the San Francisco Department of Public Works has received are unclear, but data shows the number of sightings has increased dramatically since 2011,” Fox News reported. “That year, 5,547 human feces incidents were reported. The number rose to 28,084 in 2018.”
Beyond making the city a toxic sinkhole of poor hygiene, the epidemic of human beings defecating in the streets has had a tremendous economic impact on the city of St. Francis. NBC News reported last year that the city has become so filth-infested that the city spends approximately $30 million a year to clean human feces off the sidewalk. Not only that, the city has only made the problem worse by enabling people’s drug problems through its distribution of free syringes, which are often seen discarded in public places.
“An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco,” reported NBC.
Surveying 153 blocks — a full 20-mile stretch — the NBC investigative team found “large heaps of garbage, food, and discarded junk,” as well as “100 drug needles and more than 300 piles of feces throughout downtown.”
The area is so filth-infested that preschool students have to walk by “nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block” as they embark on a field trip.
“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” teacher Adelita Orellana told NBC News at the time. “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.”
As noted by The Daily Wire’s Kassy Dillon during her visit to the city, San Francisco has done little to curtail the city’s escalating drug problem.
“The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left on the streets,” Dillon reported. “We spent our first day walking around the Tenderloin District, only to see our fellow Americans defecating on the sidewalk, shooting up in broad daylight, and overall living in third-world conditions. In one children’s playground we visited, there were wrappers that once held drugs and caps of syringes.”
