Over 16,000 complaints have been logged with the City of San Francisco regarding ‘feces’ in the last seven days.
Many of the complaints also connect the fecal matter to vagrants and homeless encampments - a sight all too common now across California.
Users can geotag the location in question, and also provide photos to support their claim.
“Homeless encampment is blocking sidewalk and creates a health hazard w trash and feces,” writes one user.
“Please move them, and send a cleaning crew. Sidewalk is impassable, forcing pedestrians into the street.”
“Homeless individuals sleeping along Funston between Clement and Geary,” writes another user.
“Observed homeless people shooting up at 5pm on Monday, July 2nd. Lots of feces and garbage in the area. Please clean up area and see if homeless individuals need services.
"Feces and urine and feminine products and all kinds of things on the ground; needles, syringes - you know they use buckets, five-gallon buckets for toilets, and it gets really disgusting," said Steve Crouch, Director of Public Employees.

I would recommend everyone watch the NBC news video 153 blocks that I put in.
Wow, eye opener on how bad it is. San Francisco is resembling some of the worst slums in the world.

I really thought the title should have read: "It's a Liberal S#ithole" but whatever.
This is so disgusting. I've been to San Fran many times for a quick vacation and fun but the last time I went in '99, it was so overrun with homeless everywhere begging for money with their dogs by their side or in grocery carts it just wasn't that fun anymore. I can imagine it would be so much worse now, I never want to go back there again.
