San Francisco’s Tenderloin District kicked off a new privately funded program Tuesday to increase the number of times its sidewalks are blasted with industrial-grade pressure washers from once a month to once a week following complaints of large amounts of human and animal feces littering the streets.

The Tenderloin Community Benefit District, which is a non-profit neighborhood group, secured an additional $260,000 this year to essentially quadruple the number of times the neighborhood’s sidewalks are professionally cleaned a month, according to the program’s supervisor Matt Haney. Property owners within the district’s 30 square blocks helped fund the program as the neighborhood continues to be plagued by a large homeless population, San Francisco’s KPIX-TV reported.

It's insane that it takes a privately organised and funded program to clean up feces on the public streets. I mean, seriously? In a major metropolitan area such as this, with taxes so high, private citizens are expected to do the work of the city now. Perhaps this private effort should collect all that fecal runoff and dump it on the local politicos front steps and yards? Will it take that for them to do something about it??

Yet they will still vote for the same Democratic idiots with the same idiotic policies and wonder why things are not getting better.

Then when it is too much to take any longer, they will move to another part of the country and vote in the same Democratic idiots and policies.........

Nicely put! You just summed it all up. Nothing further to add. Just the same recycled trash.

Wouldn't it be cheaper if they rented porta-potties for the homeless and had them pumped out every so often. Hell, maybe regular people out shopping would stop in and use them too.

If the property/business owners had any balls, they would go to city hall to protest and insist that the sidewalks be cleaned weekly, because of the threat to public health. If city leaders failed to address the issue, then they should refuse to pay their taxes. But NO, they instead pay into a fund that pays for the power washing of these sidewalks. What a bunch of spineless morons.

Well, if they do that they provide "shootin up boothes"

probably not viable

That is too easy. Porta-potties within/on inaccessible tree or roof tops makes more sense for 'lets create an insolvable puzzle' loving Californians.

WE were driving to go pick up our side of beef about forty miles away in october and there were portapotties on side of the road for the workers putting in the new gas pipeline to our area. I stopped and used one, I am not proud. Stopping on the highway and running in the trees makes you paranoid, a cop might come by and try to give you a ticket for parking on the highway shoulder. All you have to say is that it was an emergency and the shoulder is there for emergencies.

The Cop could *presume* (abuse of power) you stopped to relieve yourself and give you a BIG FAT TICKET for indecent exposure/littering/deficating-urinating in public...

What is your solution to the problem?

Seriously, we can all sit behind a screen, complain, and be horrified.

But, that solves nothing.

California, one of the richest states that prides itself on its progressive and liberal policies, can’t afford to wash its own streets of the human filth those very policies have created a breeding ground for, and now the private sector that they claim is full of selfish money hoarders must step up to do the job.

Behold liberals, your Utopia, covered in human feces.
Take a good look because when your forced to move out of the hell you’ve created, do not start laying the bricks for a new one in whatever state is unlucky enough to call you a new resident.

I'm pretty sure they've tried that.

Damage/upkeep would be too expensive.

Actually, they have (or had) a "potty truck" that drives through the city every morning and every evening.

Step 1: stop being liberal
Step 2: actually prosecute people who break laws like #ting in public, petty theft, and drug use
Your not doing anyone a favor by allowing these things

San Francisco is only 231.89 sq miles.

Do you really think this (CA) is the only place this happens?

And do what with them?

The jails are over crowded. They kick these people out.

Next solution?

They blast poop onto parked cars. Some have windows down.

Yuck! Is the dissolved # going into the storm drains? This cannot be healthy! Doesn't this "sewage" wind up in a river or canal or the ocean? Talk about an environmental hazard...double dooty. The origin and the final destination are both health hazards.

California used to be the place to be. Newsom, et al, have turned it into one big #hole. So sad CA's leadership can't figure out how to solve this issue.

Call the EPA I wouldn't think washing that into the storm sewers would be legal.

They probably round them all up at election time and bus them to the voting booths, rewarding them with a meal and some kind of freebie for their trouble. If they're behind bars, no can do.
