The liberal mayor of San Francisco has now been forced to officially declare a state of emergency in the city’s tenderloin district as crime continues to spiral out of control.

As The New York Times reports:


SAN FRANCISCO — The mayor of San Francisco on Friday declared a state of emergency in one of the most crime-ridden and drug infested parts of the city.

That area, the Tenderloin neighborhood, is just steps from city hall, but it has been ground zero for drug dealing, overdose deaths and homelessness for years.

In what many observers said was a sharp turnaround in both tone and policy, the mayor, London Breed, this week said she would pursue an “aggressive” crackdown on the “nasty streets” of her city. It’s a highly unusual move by a liberal mayor in one of the country’s most liberal cities.

“We are in a crisis and we need to respond accordingly,” she said at a news conference on Friday. “Too many people are dying in this city, too many people are sprawled on our streets,” she said, referring to residents who have overdosed.

The news comes as ‘smash and grab’ robberies by mobs of masked individuals wielding hammers and other weapons have terrorized many of the cities businesses.

The mayor seems sincere, but where was she a year ago?

The only thing this DEMOCRAT is sincere about is keeping her job!!! That aside, she could care less!

I’m sure the recent breaking and entering crimes in the nicer neighborhoods is not doing her poll numbers any good. So NOW it’s important to give the issue attention.

Not hard to understand why Moonbeam instituted mail-in fraud in perpetuity….otherwise people in Commifornia were likely to elect a Republican mayor again next time around…
