Very sad. And still our oh so progressive members of the board of supervisors feel it is ok to let the mentally ill roam the city living like animals. They still feel that street people who live to do drugs and drink is a person right, even when it significantly impacts whole neighborhoods with its concomitant crime. Things will not change until voters put people in office that are sensitive to the mentally ill and can also sent a message to street people that the city will not tolerate substance abuse any longer. Oh sorry we do enable it though....in many ways.

To be fair, earlier this month the supervisors voted to implement Laura's Law by a 9-2 vote. At least city progressives are beginning to acknowledge that homelessness isn't just a housing issue; it's usually about substance abuse and mental health.
