San Francisco's New DA Says City Will No Longer Prosecute Public Urination or Prostitution

While eating a breakfast sandwich on the BART platform might be grounds for getting arrested, the liberal bastion of San Francisco now says they won’t prosecute people for public urination.

Which, considering there are already dirty needles and human feces littering the sidewalks, seems only par for the course for Nancy Pelosi’s hometown.

Also on the list of soon-to-be-unprosecutable crimes are "public camping," (i.e., homeless tents), prostitution, and blocking a sidewalk. So take note, tourists.

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” incoming District Attorney Chesa Boudin claimed on an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign, per the Daily Caller.

“Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness,” he added.

San Francisco’s human waste problem has gotten so bad, the city assembled an actual “poop patrol” to clean up feces from the city’s sidewalks left there by the local homeless population. An investigative survey conducted by NBC’s Bay Area branch found trash on all 153 blocks surveyed, feces on 96 blocks, and used needles on 41 blocks. The city’s own Democratic mayor, London Breed, has complained that there “are more feces than I’ve ever seen” in the city’s streets.
