I’ve been living in SF for 12 years and I can attest to everything in this video. The conditions in this city are horrifying and totally unsafe for law-abiding citizens and people with small children. It’s hard to believe in a city where the average house is $1MIL, you can’t walk down the street without seeing excrement, vomit and strung out junkies everywhere.

@Dan noringer Your opinion of California has nothing to do with my situation. Cool your tongue, worry about yourself. Negative input is not needed. Example: Don't sweat it , everything is going to work out.

@Achilles Dinamita Achilles: Why didn't you have savings when you had an accident ? Why didn't the company provide health benefits ? Why don't you own a car you could sleep in ? You are responsible for yourself, the state is NOT responsible for your wellbeing. Take care of yourself, and that doesn't mean living in the public lands, it means working, gaining skills, sacrificing to save, and working hard and being a responsible citizen. Something you don' t find much in California. Good luck to you, but you need to be the captain of your life, not a leaf in the wind.

I became homeless in 2021 due to a freak accident on the job. I'm not on drugs or drinking, but don't get the same resources offered to some homeless people who refuse them. The times I do go to the shelters it's hard to sleep due to people in active addiction being disruptive. At times I sleep outside stealthily in affluent neighborhoods to avoid trouble. When I'm in decent physical health I have no problem working for a living. I have been in San Francisco for 8 years plan on staying. If I were offered a temporary hotel voucher or an apartment until I could afford market rate rent, that would be great. I do feel my situation will improve. Thank you TRvid for letting me voice my opinion.

I just visited San Francisco for the first time last month on a work trip. It reminded me of an old theater with splendid architecture and unique character. I could tell that in its hayday it used to be quite the attraction but years of poor management turned it into a run down dump.

I arrived to San Francisco one week ago, and I attest that this video exposes what I’ve been seeing on the streets. Other than feeling endangered, it’s sad and shocking to see the richest state of the US with this problem so severe. I will never forget seeing a man injecting in plain sight in front of a government building and everybody was acting like that wasn’t happening. I hope to the people of SF that you can get to the solution soon.

@Ms. Ann Thrope Unfortunately, having the demoncrap party in office is like a cancer. Look at what has happened to the economy nationally with the demoncraps running the macroeconomy at the national level with supply restrictive policies driving up inflation, and excessive spending driving up costs. We need demoncraps removed from office every time there is an election. regards, Dan

Single party govenment does not work. Single party government becomes corrupt and then bad things happen.. Single party government does not solve problems. Single party government does not serve the people, it serves the few rich and powerful, and nobody else....sort of like communism, where it serves only the dictator and his/her cronies.

They need deliverance. And only Christ can set the captives free! These are demonically possessed! This is judgment on a wicked nation that has delved so deep into immorality God is allowing this. You want a holy and righteous God out of your society, this is what comes with it! We have been invaded by foreigners that the American people have to pay the bill for. And all of the current people in any type of power need to go! They want to destroy our sovereignty! When America falls, the entire world goes with it! USELESS! “There are Petty laws and useless officials!” That was one of the Georgia Guidestones laws before satan destroyed them by lightning! Get rid of petty laws and useless officials! Abortion, LGBTQ, murder and rape of children and sex trafficking and child sacrifice, transgenders mutilating themselves to become something other than what God made them, drag queens allowed to read stories to our children! All things unnatural and wicked are fully accepted today. Pure Wickedness! God is pissed! Pure Evil is at the helm of this nation that has become an OBAMAnation/Abomination in the sight of a holy and righteous God! Repent and turn from all sin whilst it still possible! The Kingdom of God is at hand! The Consequences of Sin and 100% proof the Bible is truth! trvid.com/video/video-OGovStpdfC0.html Take some accountability America for what is happening to our once great and blessed land like no other! ⚔️⚜️

Amazing job. As someone who has been homeless and drug addicted, I've constantly tried to make this point clear to people. Compassion can be a disguise for greed and self promotion. Politicians will walk over an OD victim on the street. Gaining voters is all that matters. Fantastic job on the doc. Seriously appreciated 🤘🏻

The truly astounding thing is, I have relatives in the Bay Area, and I still follow a lot of the news from San Francisco because I used to live there, I’ve literally never heard anyone aside from politicians supporting these more progressive policies out there… Everyone is against the DA and the government, yet they still have to shove these failing policies down everyone’s throat.

@Federico Cicerchia yea sure that will work great because we definitely haven’t tried that before🤣 I think there’s gotta be some middle way here that isn’t quite so black and white because I agree it’s a shit show but even most law enforcement officers understand that you can’t arrest your way out of addiction/drug dealing/poverty/homelessness/other drug-related crimes. The prohibition of a lot of ‘hard’ drugs actually either directly or indirectly causes or contributes to most of the problems that we’re seeing today believe it or not but unfortunately it is indeed very true. There is no quick/easy solution but it will certainly require drug policy reform among many, many other changes to the current system and I haven’t given up hope completely yet but I believe the problem(s) will get much worse before they start to get better once these changes are made

I do think soon the city will change but the very first step is to throw away the trash in city hall. They do not care at all about what the avg citizens in sf has to deal with.

Thanks for your efforts in making this video. I was on the streets in SF with an addiction problem years ago. I was able to get out and I've been sober for 14 years now. I want to say that there is no way that I would have cleaned up with the current policies in SF. I cleaned up because I had no other options left, other than maybe prison or death. The streets kicked my ass, basically. These days, with all the so called help these people are getting, they don't have any reason to change the way they live.

Police: laughing during report, car rental: we’ve got few returns a day with a broken windows 🤯 I was like: WHAAAAT?! I’ve 15 years living in 3rd world country with high level of crime (so I thought) but it results to be safer than California 😳

What the Dimocrats have done to SF is beyond shameful. Decades of liberal single party corrupt goverenment have created a mess of biblical disaster and dysfunctionality. The state of California should lose it's statehood and be governed by a federal judge for a decade while it unwinds it's corruption and malaise until it is split up and different sections of California reapply for statehood in more governable sized geographies.

Amazing. Awful to see and contemplate. We lived in the East Bay back in 80 - 82. Frankly, I couldn’t tolerate living there after a couple of years it but I have to say that it’s one of the most beautiful regions of the country, but San Francisco didn’t look like this back then. We lived in Berkeley and with the established camp of Peoples Park and with other folks camping on the sidewalks it wasn’t something that could go unnoticed, and it was accepted and perhaps even encouraged there but my brother was living on Potrero Hill at the time and there were fewer homeless people by far. But this is symptomatic of the general unraveling society in the USA. Something’s gone. Something’s missing. We’re in deeper trouble than we think we are … Great film of a terrible crime.

In the 80's, 90's and early 2000's, I used to take trips to SF about 4 times a year. Now, 30 or more years later, all of my friends have moved out of the city, and many out of California. Letting people crap all over, literally, should not be protected like its free speech. Perhaps if all tents could be set up in front of the homes of people like Chesa Boudin, they would understand how this has to stop.

Seeing what has happened to San Francisco over the years makes me so sad. And hearing that lady talk made me feel even more miserable about the future of my beloved city. It just seems like they have all these plans but never considered the potential negative ramifications from them. Try thinking about this from an addicts perspective; you’ve got cheap drugs, booze, hotels and hookers. You’re living like a rockstar, why would you want to be sober?

After contemplating on San Francisco’s homeless/mental illness and drug issue, it is pretty evident that what has been going on is clearly not working for the city! I recently visited San Francisco and no doubt it is a gem of the city. I live in Minnesota and my travels would put it as one of the best in continental u.s. As I was saying saying, Sf is top notch, but sweeping a problem under the rug does not eliminate a problem. I know all too well about mental health, drugs and homelessness. In Minnesota, people even fake being dope sick to have a place to stay warm. Mayo Clinic is overrun by addicts and try to pawn the people off to the detox facility. Many times we are not suited for their needs. I used to take it hard when it was a revolving door, many times they were back after a few short hours to get high! I know that the job is to give them a safe detox, but I felt that I wasn’t doing enough, but what is the solution. In Minnesota, our hospitals, mental hospitals and clinics are full all the time. Hell, we even pay exorbant amounts of money to have North Dakota take them until we can deal with our residents. Fuck the political bullshit with both parties! They both don’t know what to do necessarily because all the money in the world will not fix the problem as the lady in the video said. What these people need is a lot!!! I mean help detoxifying, then mental help with medications. Medications are only a small part. They need help thinking on their own and wanting to stay sober, have a place of their own eventually, staying consistent with their services and finding something that they can take pride in. Most need help with tough love! Without, most will fall back in their ways! My political believes are best person for the job! I agree those in power had their chance to fix! What is the saying? Doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result is …. I hope Sf because it is a marvelous place and most importantly those people need strong people looking out for them as people and not as dirt you can sweep under the rug! One ❤️

This is shocking and sad. I lived in San Francisco from 1965 for 20 + yrs and the Tenderloin was nothing like this. One thing to keep in mind is, never drive through the Tenderloin at night, you could be robbed and assaulted at a Red Light. It almost happened to me near J Town in 1979 just a block from Gulf St, but I was able to run the light and get away before two guys approached my car.

When I was growing up, I played a Commodore 64 game called "Rags to Riches." I was never really good at it, and the game pretty much predicted I'd live on the streets of SF as a homeless drug addict. That game scared the hell out of me, so I did my best not to end up there. I guess in the end, I actually beat the game. Go figure.

Grew up in San Jose, went to college in SF about ten years ago; I hated it. It was so unsafe. I love running and go daily, but even when I was wearing baggy sweats and sweaters; the catcalling was non stops, and the things they would say were far worse than any "regular" catcalls. Public transport is disgusting, the homeless would wet their pants on the seats, people were passing out...no woman or child should live there, it's just not safe.

@Ms. Ann Thrope Not only that, but I'll take you three or four steps further: Jail or prison would be a significant improvement of the quality of life for most of these people -- and many INTENTIONALLY get arrested to get it done. And there isn't enough jail and prison space for that -- so "vigilante justice" (and we all know what that means) IS the only remedy left. And you best make it fatal: They won't have any qualms returning any non-fatal such justice tenfold.

@lieshtmeiser5542 there aren't enough Deputy DAs, courtrooms, or judges to deal with low level transgressiosn. And the liberal shithead public defenders will just demand jury trials for every one of these low level crimes to jam up the criminal justice system. And the punishment? A fine that they don't have money to pay. No return for any enforcement. That's why vigilante justice is the only remedy left.

Someone recently told me the reason the homeless problem can’t or haven’t been fox is that all the social services want to keep it this way and don’t want to fix. If they fix it, all the non profits would go out of business and they don’t want that to happen and become obsolete. I wondered why the homeless issues have gone on for decades and never ever looked at that possibility, but it makes sense bc whatever they are doing hasn’t worked and there no real solution on the table. Yeah, that kind of blew my mind! And I’m one that was homeless, but made it out bc I didn’t have a mental issue, didn’t use drugs or committed crimes. But I had to help myself bc it seem the ppl. that could be easily put back into society, they didn’t support or know what to do with. Which is sad that no one thought about giving a boost to those that could help themselves.

The problem started with these stupid experiments by Democrats that took away order. Like how the guy that attacked Dave Chappelle is now being charged with a misdemeanor instead of attempted murder. He will then be back on the streets harrassing law abiding citizens again. The idiot that smeared his poop all over a woman's face in a New York subway had prior assault charges with almost no jail time. These are all Democrat experiments.

@Arch Yeomans it’s not a money issue though. SF spends more money on homelessness than any other US city (last I checked). The problem is so called ‘compassionate’ policies which do ABSOLUTELY nothing to actually remediate the problems leading to homelessness - which is mostly a mixture of addictions, mental illness and a lack of shelters and psychiatric hospital beds just to name a few.

@Abigale I thought it may be something like this. If sure people would be okay with paying a bit more tax, rather than seeing an abundance of, what looks like, refugee camps on their doorstep and pure poverty everywhere they look. There are some homeless people here, but never in my life have I seen a multitude of homeless camps everywhere. It's honestly like a third world country in the US. Bet the Americans wish they didn't go to war with England now, as you'd have free healthcare and a massive amount of people off the streets. Spend billions on housing, not cleaning up after the homeless, I'd say!

I would like to share one perspective that I haven't heard being discussed at all. It starts with the question; who benefits from homelessness? Many people will say these nonprofits benefit, well those who work there and the companies they work with. But what is the actual effect on the city? It pushes people outwards. Instead of growing vertically, instead of growing value to extraordinary sights, it pushes some of the growth outwards. How do you make people move on from owning exclusive locations and possibly invest in growth somewhere else, where growth needs to be stimulated? You let the homelessness run its course, make the area uninhabitable, un-rentable, un-leasable, economically nonfeasible, and when it's completely ruined you move in big investors, banks, mega-corporations, and you get the valuable land for less money than. Corporations can wait for decades, ordinary citizens would lose money over time by owning those properties. I believe homelessness is a tool, I think that is why they aren't coming up with real solutions. I am not saying everyone is aware of this, even those in high places, but people who benefit from this are very likely behind them, supporting them.

Jesus I hadn’t even connected those dots. I had asked the question, but couldn’t figure a reasonable answer. That’s scary and tragic - and wouldn’t surprise me at all of some of the financial elites of cities like this. It’s insidious how they push these progressive policy’s as compassionate. Anyone with eyes to see, can see that there is absolutely nothing compassionate about creating a culture where hard drugs are easily accessible, and then letting people fester and rot in the squalor and chaos that substance abuse creates.

I'm from the UK and have visited SF three times , in 87, 93 and latterly in 2018. Three years ago I found the change in the city with regard to how run down and degraded it has become, quite astonishing. I felt that with my first two visits, the city held a certain intense fascination for me in ways that I couldn't quite articulate, but last time I went there, quite frankly I couldn't wait to get out of the city. We drove the short hop to El Cerrito in order to spend the night, and the day after, we headed off back towards the relative normality (yes that's what I said) of LA.

Something the SF Board of Supervisors is unwilling to do is drop the hammer on the drug users. Use drugs - two years in county jail or 6 months of rehab. Set up a drug court. Also for retail theft - 6 months in county and allow retailers to detain shop lifters. However, SF has gone in completely the opposite direction decriminalizing everything in the name of social justice. It has led to complete chaos. Policy needs to change and money needs to be spent, but just throwing good money after bad with horrible policies is not going to change anything. 700 people a year dying of drug overdoses in SF every year. This is the SF Board of Supervisors idea of compassion.

Please come to Western Washington and do a report like this on the The Big Three; Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia. Our homeless population has been growing rapidly since the nation learned that we have comprehensive Healthcare for the homeless and many cities around the country have bought one way transportation for their homeless to ship them here. All done by convincing the homeless they will have a better life, Healthcare, and more opportunities to get out of the homeless pitfalls. As a result the local politicians and civic leaders have used various emotional speeches, the pulling of heart strings, liberal yet untested/unproven or often already disproven ideologies, and promises which they can not keep in order to secure postings, add taxes to the citizens of which less than 20% of that money is reaching the homeless often via ineffectual means, as well as placing people they know (friends, family, constituents) in charge of the systems for helping the homeless. These people are then paid salaries that are not proportional to the position, especially when you consider that most of them have little to no understanding of the situation or how to effectively provide aid to those in need, they do not take the time to survey or even interviews those in need by simply asking them what they need most, and have little educational background in nor plans to become educated on the matter at hand. Those that do were taught outdated ideas and persist with their Reagan Era policies. The inequities and stupidity and greed are putting much of the weight on the common people forcing a greater divide between rich vs poor which, combined with the explosion of gangs/gang activity taking advantage of the homeless, puts these hard working common people prone to casual drug use so easily accessed now from gang dealers. Many fall prey to addiction, gang violence due to debt, or worse...the poison being added to street level drugs makes them permanently physically sick, diseased, mentally ill, or left debilitated by brain damage. Those at the top spend less to help, take little to no responsibility, care too little to encourage changes, and are being incentivised to keep this system going. As if they found the price for human inequality and can place a product value tag on each of these poor people whom the take advantage of. This was such a magnificent piece of journalism to experience and I hope you continue to make many more like it. In all this darkness even a single flame stands out as bright as the sun and will draw others with light in their heart towards it. M Mat the gods and goddesses lend you strength and good fortune on your journey.

Back then it was WEIRD but not as dangerous, filthy and woke as it is now. Actually, it was somewhat entertaining because that's what gave SF that certain vibe. Plus, tourism dollars were a boon for the city by the bay as well, so I don't ever recall walking around feces and or syringes but do remember seeing the odd duck passed out drunk in some corner but the popo usually kept most of the tourist areas safe.

De-institutionalization of long term mental health facilities was well intended but was never matched with appropriate funding. Patients with Severe Mental Illness (Schizophrenia, Substance Depenedence, Bipolar Disorder,etc) who didn't have substantial resources or family support ended up on the streets or in jail. In some situations, these conditions cannot be cured voluntarily. There should be checks and balances, but the pendulum should shift towards involuntarily treatment when necessary.

I'd like to know (and this is someone who was homeless in San Fran when it wasn't this bad (1999-2008)) what, short of shooting some of them, is going to help the process. The time for actually helping them was wasted in the early 2000's. I remember getting ticketed for sleeping some overnight in Justin Herman Plaza, and the SFPD officer shot off his mouth, wondering what I would want done. I told them (and this was 2002 or after) to close Golden Gate Park, get the National Guard, turn it into a processing center, and figure out what can be done. He laughed. Now it's too late. Even five years after I left, I saw how much worse it had gotten, and it's the entire Bay Area. And then there's the story of the likes of "Pia Hitler" and an unhinged basket case who was posting racist screeds all over Downtown and Noe Valley. Finally, disgusted enough by seeing them, I tore one down -- when he showed up. He had "HITLER" in Sharpie on a hospital outfit and how that guy actually was allowed to walk around anywhere, you got me... You want the Bay Area back? Take it by force. Seriously.

Unfortunately, a lot of this can be traced back to increasing economic insecurity, and has been brewing for well over a decade. The pandemic (and the gross mishandling of it) just opened some of the floodgates, and we're seeing the result of that. Supply-chain issues, due to tons of cut corners to keep more profit at the top, and in shareholder hands, are one of the big contributors to the bare shelves. Bare shelves lead to higher prices, higher prices lead to more economic insecurity, economic insecurity leads to panic buying and crime. All of this ends up also including greater disparity in the distribution of wealth: wash, rinse, repeat.

People are going to need to eventually realize: there's no such thing as a responsible addict. You cannot expect people to be responsible with a substance that directly attacks an individual's capacity for sound, rational judgment. Duterte had the right idea.

People need to be held accountable wether it's for bad policies or bad behavior

“It led to all these unintended consequences.” Unintended? Perhaps. Completely predictable to anyone not living in a fantasy world? Absolutely.

Completely predictable to any not liberal, non dimocrat. Elect a republican if you want REAL functioning governance and public problem solving to take place.

Quite. You only have to look at that politician they interviewed - all she had to offer was a rant about the Republicans, a party that hasn't held power in SF since the flood. No responsibility, no accountability, no introspection - just blind, unthinking, knee-jerk ideology.

This is what gets me. Every line that politician said that people applauded I was appalled.

My sentiments exactly. San Francisco it seems has always looked at itself as a place of freedom inclusion and love. Well, it ain't that anymore. It has allowed billion dollar corporations in and has allowed the rents to soar out of the stratosphere while trying to maintain their reputation as a cool place where all are welcome. Well San Francisco is gonna have to decide which city it wants to be. The civil well heeled billionaire club or the lovely city where people can actually afford to live and feel safe. If choosing the latter then some serious ashole moves and some balls will be necessary. Destroy the dealers and gangs. Destroy them with harshness and no mercy. Stop handing out free shit to people that live on free shit. Time for the freeloaders to get to work or get TF out. Offer help to those that want it and make that help amazing and make the rewards amazing upon completion of said help. Those that don't want to stop will have to leave. Sorry.....inclusion of smelly drug addicts is no longer viable should be the new city motto. Yeah it's severe but what these people have been allowed to do to such a beautiful place is more than severe. It's a f king travesty.

Once you're down on the streets you're stuck. Then you need any escape. I feel bad for them.

SF resident here. Nearly 2 years later and the city is still in terrible shape. There are some very beautiful parts of SF that I love and treasure like Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park, but the rough areas are the worst I've ever seen them in my 25 years of living here. It's honestly something out of a post-apocalyptic movie. The two blocks outside my office building are choked with trash, needles, feces, and broken glass, and it's not even the worst part of the city. Making a wrong turn on certain side streets will get you carjacked, or at the very least bottles and other garbage thrown at you. I absolutely hate to see the city that I was born in and spent most of life in degenerate to such a condition. I don't know what it's going to take for people here to wake up and make a difference.

The homeless guy said, based on his experience, 85% of homeless people are drug addicts, but, put in perspective, birds of a feather flock together, so of course he would encounter more addicts on the street. I was homeless for a while a few years ago, and only came across two drug addicted homeless people, but there were many alcoholics. That is not to downplay the issue, but to offer another point of view.
Sherlock noshit : Liberty & Justice for all
This same thing is going on right now in every major city in America and their suburbs. While drug addiction and mental illness are a problem, they're not the only problem by far or the cause. Gentrification, unequal development of luxury hosing verses affordable housing, lack of proper medical care and medical treatment for addiction and ever changing technological advances in industry all play contributing roles as well. All these issues must be addressed before you can begin to make progress in reducing the homeless population. Trying them and putting them in jails and prison will never solve the problem and will end up costing more money in the long run.
