    People not caring has generally been the problem. In Houston for the last 15 years business owners in Chinatown have been asking for more law enforcement. Not something quite popular among the Democrats these days.

    Why don't you and Casey H figure out which side of this you're on and then come back tomorrow?

    This is better than zero police in the Bay Area because they love criminals and drug dealers
    their cops can't arrest people because they have dumb laws about crime
    they are finally doing something cause Nationally This looks terrible and people are moving.

    Here's the thing these dumb hippies don't get, drug addicts love drugs to the point they will rob or attack your money to get drugs
    this has been proven

    San Francisco Plans to Flood Mid-Market and Tenderloin With Cops and Community Ambassadors In Response to Chaos

    What for decades has been a bit of a cluster
    where a blind eye was mostly turned from low-level drug transactions, the Tenderloin and Mid-Market have become more dangerous and chaotic during the pandemic, with fewer tourists and downtown workers on the street. Violent crime may have been down overall last year, but a few high-profile attacks — particularly against elderly Asian Americans — in recent months, as well as a massive overdose crisis have made law enforcement a priority for Mayor London Breed.

    Another one! Thank goodness some people stepped in.

    Oh, it's a HOMELESS PERSON attacking a citizen!
    This is what happens when you ignore crime and let the homeless population dominate your city.

    Actually this is what happens when you worship billionaires and increase wealth disparities and allow pharmaceuticals to flood opioids into the market.

    Crime is a effect, not a cause.

    I'm glad Vernon is calling this out
    (not many people on the D&D know who this Vernon guy is because the D&D is full of non Rockets fans)
