"Fascist" .... give me a break. Universally, almost all of the homeless are not people who have been displaced because their rent payments skyrocketed. Those that were affected by sky-high rents, either got roommates, or moved two or three hours away, to commute in daily to their job. They are called "super commuters". They don't just go and setup a tent outside their office. They either find a new job in a different area, or relocate and commute in. I know of at-least one who commutes & carpools from Fresno. Ultra Low Interest Rates & horrible Federal Policy basically sparked a ridiculous buying binge & propped up SF Real Estate to the Sky. It's a bubble that is finally bursting.The one solution is create a fascist culture where you grab any homeless or drug users and run them out of town.
That would fix things, for a while.
But people become poor.
They crash and burn.
Some people become mentally ill or drug addicts, who weren't before.
Then you have to run them out.
Or you could spend the huge amount of money that is needed to take care of the people on the streets.
But the companies that made everything so expensive don't want to pay more taxes....
So what do you do?
The overwhelming majority of the homeless in San Francisco are drug addicts, plane & simple. These people need to understand, their are consequences to their actions. You cannot just have people openly out and using Meth, on a corner, in front of the Starbucks or Chase Branch. They need to be gathered up, ARRESTED, and FORCED into DRUG REHAB programs. They should be forced to either attend rehab, prove sobriety -- or sit in Jail and contemplate their life choices. Leaving them on the street, imo, is just cruelty. We are allowing a sizable demographic to just sit there, rot, and eventually die in a pile of filth. What could be more shameful than our in-action and enabling of their downfall?
