SF Mayor: ‘There’s More Feces … Than I’ve Ever Seen’……

ALSO VOWS MORE FREE INJECTION SITES…….


San Francisco Mayor London Breed, in her first one-on-one interview since taking office, said homeless advocacy groups that receive funding from the city need to better educate the homeless to “clean up after themselves.”

“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” Breed told the Investigative Unit, referencing her conversations with nonprofit groups aimed at serving the homeless.

When pressed about whether her plan calls for harsher penalties against those who litter or defecate on city streets, Breed said “I didn’t express anything about a penalty.”  Instead, the mayor said she has encouraged nonprofits “to talk to their clients, who, unfortunately, were mostly responsible for the conditions of our streets.”

Viral Investigation Exposed San Francisco’s ‘Diseased Streets’
A recent NBC Bay Area investigation went viral after exposing an alarming amount of trash, drug needles, and feces scattered across San Francisco.

The report centered around a 153-block survey of downtown San Francisco, which revealed trash on every block, 100 needles, and more than 300 piles of feces along the 20-mile stretch of streets and sidewalks.

On Friday, two days after Breed’s inauguration, the new mayor during an afternoon stroll saw firsthand the reality and challenges of the city. Video recorded by NBC Bay Area shows a man prepping a needle as Breed walked by.

More Feces on Sidewalks
“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed said.  “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

San Francisco is slated to spend nearly $280 million this year on housing and services for the homeless — a roughly 40 percent increase compared to just five years ago. Over that same span, however, the number of homeless in the city has largely remained the same at about 7,500 people, according to city counts.

“About 70 percent of the people estimated to be homeless in San Francisco were actually housed in San Francisco before they became homeless,” Breed said. “We have to make sure people who live here, [and] sadly, people who are homeless here, that they are also held accountable for taking care of our streets. This is our home.”

City’s Street Cleaning Budget Slated for 20 percent Boost
San Francisco spent $65 million on street cleaning last year and plans to add nearly $13 million in additional spending over the next two years.

“I don’t think that the city is poorly spending what it already has,” Breed said.  “I spend a lot of time on Fillmore Street. I see the people who are part of a program, out there power washing. They’re out there doing what they can to keep the community clean, almost every day, and then right after they leave, maybe an hour or two later, the place is filled with trash again.”

DAWG SAYS:

Places like San Francisco have policies and a mindset that has lead to the homeless and filth like feces on the street. More of the same policies will not make it better. I guess they forgot they were once a tourist town, no one will go there anymore.

How to Tell Someone Is Toxic In the First 5 Minutes

SOME GUIDELINES TO THINK ABOUT

Have you ever had a toxic person in your life?

How much damage did they cause to you and your loved ones?

What if you could have noticed their toxicity right off the bat, saving yourself hours upon hours of heartache, frustration, and mental exhaustion?


It might sound a bit far-fetched, however, there are certain concrete signals and behaviors you can pick up on to know if someone is toxic within the first five minutes of meeting them– or sooner.

By understanding us, you remove one of our most powerful weapons: confusion.

1. They talk negatively about others

If you strike up a conversation with someone and they have no qualms with saying negative things about another, that’s a decent sign the person is toxic.

Whether it’s their family, friends, coworker, or someone you simply come across during or in the midst of your conversation, someone that’s okay with saying negative things about another so casually is lacking a certain basic respect for others.

2. They want something from you

One of the most surefire ways to know if someone is toxic within minutes of meeting them is to identify what, if anything, they want from you.

If the person is toxic, chances are they’re talking to you because they want something. And, while by no means does this mean they’re certainly toxic, it’s one of the most important signs to look for as toxic people generally take far more than they give.

For example, if the person has no qualms with using your things or asks for something free, they’re almost certainly a toxic association.

3. They have no problem asking you for favors

Similarly, if the other person shows zero hesitation to ask for things from you within just minutes of you meeting, they’re almost surely toxic.

More than just the fact that they display the desire to get something from you, this is about the fact that they show no hesitation in using you to get something done.

Toxic types are often great manipulators, so they’re accustomed to using others to get what they want. In extreme cases, they can even show sociopathic tendencies and have little to no ability to even understand how you feel, let alone care.

4. They show no sign of interest in you


Another good way of telling if someone is toxic quickly is if they show no sign of interest at all in you.

By that I don’t mean someone is supposed to care about you within minutes of meeting you. Obviously, that’s unrealistic and not at all toxic.

What I am talking about is if someone seems eager to share about their life or something they want from you, but shows literally no interest in you and your life, even after several minutes of conversation.

There’s always that off-chance the person is just shy or nervous, however, if the other person clearly loves to talk about themselves or is pushing to get something from you and hasn’t even asked a single question about you within five minutes, the could very likely be toxic.

5. The interaction feels uncomfortable

By uncomfortable, I’m not talking about what it feels like when you walk up to someone and ask them out. It’s not nervousness but a kind of dreadful, sinking feeling in your stomach like you’re dealing with a force that isn’t quite good-natured.

Sometimes, we don’t notice any signs– we feel them. It can be hard to keep up with all the verbal and nonverbal cues someone gives off, however, that doesn’t mean our brain doesn’t catch them. They just haven’t fully processed yet.

If you’ve just met someone and they make you feel uncomfortable, tense, or angry, that’s a good sign that they’re toxic.

Sure, sometimes we feel uncomfortable around new people, tense or deflated when we’re around others who are more successful than us, and angry when we’re around someone we envy. So, that’s definitely not always the case.

However, if you know it’s none of those things, the reasoning doesn’t arise from your own issues, and you still can’t quite put your finger on it, that uncomfortable feeling is a good way to tell that the person is toxic, so don’t be afraid to follow your gut.

DIPSHIDIOTS OF THE DAY: 2 GEORIA POLICE OFFICERS DECIDE ARREST BY HEADS OR TAILS

Roswell, Georgia, police officers Courtney Brown, left, and Kristee Wilson

Two police officers in Georgia have been suspended after they used a coin toss to decide whether to arrest a 24-year-old motorist they stopped for speeding, police said.

The officers stopped the motorist in April when she was running late for work at an Atlanta hair salon and sped past them at around 80 miles (130 km) per hour on a wet road, according to a police statement and video footage of the incident released by a local television station.

The two female police officers then discussed whether to give motorist Sarah Webb a speeding ticket or arrest her for reckless driving, according to a police statement released on Friday.

They decided to flip a coin to decide it: heads, arrest; tails, release, according to the statement by the Roswell Police Department.

Officer Courtney Brown used a coin flip app on her mobile phone and the toss went against Webb, with Brown and the other officer, Kristee Wilson, giggling as they began to write up charges, according to the video.

Atlanta news station 11 Alive alerted Webb of the footage. Webb filed a request to see it, and its release led to all charges being dropped against her at a July 9 court hearing.

Webb could not immediately be reached for comment.

“I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision-making process of something as important as the arrest of a person,” Roswell Police Department Chief Rusty Grant said in the statement, adding that an investigation had been launched and the officers were on administrative leave.
