SE – San Francisco resident angry over urban crime: ‘It’s brutal’

San Franciscans who are tired of crime in the area told Fox News the situation is dire and the mayor has a lot of work to do.

Residents like Madeline said crime has gotten worse reported Friday.

“I just noticed that there is a lot more, you know, like car burglary and a lot of things,” she explained.

A person named Clint said: “I’m just as left as they come and I’ve been pushed more to the center because of this kind of policy. The whole policy for years has been like just hands – free, let them do what they will… It’s awful. It’s brutal. “

He also compared the area with the city from Batman, and remarked: “It’s f ——- Gotham right now.”

Meanwhile, radical San Francisco district attorney Chesa Boudin spoke out against Mayor London Breed’s recent policy of expanding police funding and declaring a “state of emergency” in the crime-ravaged Tenderloin district, Breitbart News reported on December 21.

The article continued:

Boudin, the son of a convicted Weather Underground militant, was elected in 2019 on a pledge to pursue criminal justice reform, as is his predecessor, George Gascón, the George Soros-backed prosecutor who is now DA in Los Angeles County.

Boudin came to office and promised not to prosecute so-called “quality of life” crimes such as public urination – a stark contrast to the “broken window” that many believe helped clean up cities like New York in the 1990s.

In December, drivers in San Francisco left their trunks open to try to stave off potential burglaries, as officials reported a 32 percent increase in car burglaries over the past year.

Marilyn, who has lived in the city for decades, recently expressed frustration because “whether it’s Safeway or Walgreens, I see people stealing even though there’s a police officer at every door.”

A person named Bill described seeing others steal as a nervous experience.

“I think shoplifting is pretty bad, and maybe it has something to do with the difference between a criminal shoplifting and also a misdemeanor,” he told Fox News.
