Officials at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) are evaluating how to best address the growing issue of homeless people taking shelter in the air hub, the latest challenge stemming from the northern California city’s homelessness crisis.Earlier this week, Fox 2 KTVU reported that SFO is experiencing a recent “surge” of homeless people taking refuge in the busy airport; many are said to arrive in the middle of the night via BART trains south from the city, as per the San Francisco Chronicle. ...For example, a former airport employee told the outlet that she went everywhere with a “buddy” in the early hours of her shifts – apparently as a safety precaution – given the amount of homeless people she’d encounter, especially during bad weather. ...An official with the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness, Jennifer Freidenbach, said it wasn’t a shock that homeless populations would take refuge in SFO, given the deficit of affordable housing in San Fran and lack of room in many shelters.
I get the climate and why homelessness is prevalent in CA, but fuck? The airport? Seems like enforcement of normal things doesn't exist in CA much.
Forcibly moving homeless out of airports in CA is mean and will not be tolerated!
BayArea saysForcibly moving homeless out of airports in CA is mean and will not be tolerated!No, but it costs $$$ thousands per bum. Is that a good investment?
Homeless taking over something is like so totally California
She said people live homeless like it's a game
There's a sort of institutional spinelessness that seems to be chic
It creates jobs for thousands of bureacrats, both in government agencies and "non-profits" which suck from the government's teat.
There'll be passed out bums on the carousels while the tourist collect their luggage, shit streaking the chairs, skels shooting up in the bathrooms, and spare changing psychos raving and following people around until they get money. Welcome to San Francisco.
Lol. Leftist politicians like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garbagecetti have intentionally ignored the homeless to make political hay and now the problem has gotten so big the idiots don’t know how to handle it. Instead they toss cash at shady nonprofits that are basically pseudo Gov agencies and fatten the wallets of those “outreach” groups while the poor and middle class suffer with non stop growth of homeless encampments.
Yep. Why tourist should wait until arriving to the SF proper when they can start having "SF experience" right away at the fucking airport? Makes perfect sense.
How is tourism in SF?
The natural beauty of the place overwhelms the shit and needles parts
