Yesterday Miguel said And you know violent crime is about to go sky high in Frisco.
Boy howdy, he is right.
From the San Francisco Chronicle (published before the election):
Keep in mind, this is a direct quote from the new DA.
Chesa Boudin: “We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted. Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness.”
So just about every single thing that vagrants and lowlifes can do to make a city an unlivable hell-hole is going to be legalized in San Francisco.
Because the city will not prosecute, the police will have no incentive or authority to stop the torment of citizens.
Add to this California’s Prop 47 and in San Francisco a person can put up a tent on a city street, take a shit on a sidewalk, get high, walk into a store, steal $949 worth of stuff, sell it on an open-air black market, take their money and buy a hooker, and the police and the DA will DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO STOP ANY OF IT.
But god forbid some tax-paying restaurateur serves a drink with a fucking plastic straw, San Francisco is going to no-knock raid his ass with a SWAT team.
The biggest problem that I have with this is that people will move out of San Francisco. If voters vote for this kind of shit, they should be forced to stay and face the music.
