Just how bad has it become in the once beautiful city of San Francisco? Drug users have pretty much taken over part of one of San Francisco’s busiest train stations.
Bay Area resident Shannon Gafford noticed a disturbing trend during his regular commute to work every day. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing — and wanted to prove it to his friends — so he decided to take video and document the horrifically sad scene.
“One morning I said, ‘I got to pull out the camera and show my friends this. They’re not going to believe it,” Gafford told KPIX 5 - San Francisco.

Democratic Mayor Mark Farrell announced a $12.8 million plan, including $750,000 just to clean up the needles littering the city.
