It's common knowledge that San Francisco has a serious homelessness problem. Estimates of the size of the city's streetbound population vary between 6,000 and 10,000, depending on the source. But that population, largely confined to a few nonresidential downtown neighborhoods, can too easily become invisible to most residents. One thing isn't invisible, however: the problem of human poop on sidewalks. Since the city slashed funding for Parks and Recreation in 2009, there's a distinct shortage of working public bathrooms.

Tell the homeless to shit in passing cars headed out of town. It will inspire drivers to keep traffic moving.

So let me get this straight, SF has the highest concentrate of PHD's in the world. Yet they slash funding for public toilets, then plot and map the crap they created. For apparently no other reason than to look at it and say... "No Shit!?"

Sometimes it's not how much you know, that makes you smart. It's just knowing what to do with what little bit you may know that counts.

Just Deploy those Social workers that I'm sure the city employs, with a pooper scooper and a bucket, and make them earn their keep.
You shouldn't keep pets you can't clean up after them.

That's right!

While the REALTOR is finishing up baking the cookies for the open house, the homeless can bust in through a window and take a crap in every room. Keeps the mess of of the street. Civic pride will prop up declining property values.

When the well meaning Art Agnos was mayor of San Francisco from '88-'92, there were homeless camps adjacent to the city hall and in the park across the street. Merchants were fed up, and the next mayor was the former chief of police who engineered a disappearance of the homeless.

They are homeless because they want to be homeless. Ever wonder why buffalo does not have a homeless problem?
Only Republicans can solve the homeless problem.

I've always thought that the more progressive an area, the worse the homeless problem. Just look at Portland (the one in Oregon). We have zilch where I live.

The few times that I have been in the City, I've noticed in certain areas it smelled pretty bad. And then there is BART.

Why, is it because the Democrat S.F. government caused it?

Because Republicans are the ones shoving their homeless onto the bus.

Because the democrats blame homelessness on everyone but the homeless. They are not willing to take the steps necessary to eliminate the problem.

Hunting licenses and fishing licenses should include unlimited culls for the homeless. Win-win!

Carrot and stick approach.
Give them such a hard time they decide to relocate. Make it hard for them to get any sleep, harass them. At the same time offer them a $100 to move to Detroit, with a free bus ticket and a free paid off home.
Who could refuse a deal like that?

That paid off home would have to come with a guaranteed job since one needs a job to pay the property taxes and utility bills.

As to giving the homeless a hard time I'd think if sleeping on the streets of SF doesn't do the trick nothing will. As cold as SF gets it's nothing compared to a winter in Buffalo.

Along with a VERY big ocean replete with disposal mechanisms.

A guaranteed job won't work as they are alcoholics not interested in working. There is no chance of them paying property taxes. After 5 years Detroit can foreclose on them and give them a one way ticket to Buffalo with a guaranteed one year supply of cheap booze.

Not to mention Santa Monica, Downtown LA, even Laguna Beach...the most left leaning enclave of coastal oC.

Funny how these neighborhoods of nearly unlimited financial resources have the worst homeless problems(hint: it's because liberal politicians have no fucking clue whatsoever how to treat the mentally ill and addicted).
