Letter to Editor: Public Defecation on South San Francisco Streets
‘Just an FYI what they do in the streets of San Francisco is now being done on the streets of South City.
This guy below just defecated on the sidewalk in front of doctor chomps dentist office. .
South City get your act together and think of the residences the locals who have been here for generations we are not going to tolerate this — I know wont’t…
The guy told me to go complain to the Mayor— so Nogales – what are you going to do about this?
This is not right — it’s bad enough when I am in SF working have to watch where I walk and it’s NOT pet feces but human…
South City is not San Francisco
Cater to the disadvantage
Yes –
Especially your multigenerational families — South City — but residence of South City would never just pull their pants down and do their business…
Disgraceful
EDIT 12/23/22: This photo was included in the original outreach yet did not publish with this, we are adding it now. In addition, Stephanie advises us that SIX days later the man’s feces are still on the street.

The guy one the bike just happened through at the same time this photo was being taken of the man who had just defecated on our South City street. Six days later the man’s feces are still there.

The newly elected school board trustee, who has lived in our city/area for a bit over a year, offers a solution on Stephanies facebook post
Amanda Anthony
The city definitely could and should invest in a public restroom like a Sanisette!”

Yes, the person tasked with handling District’s finances, which have just been bolstered with new bond money, first go to is to spend money to put public restrooms on residential streets. No word of accountability to the person who does this.

We are so fucked.

That’s as bad as offering what amounts to “shooting galleries” for addicts in the streets of San Francisco to combat drug addiction. Yeah, we are sooo what Jordan said.

It’s hard to prevent someone from taking a dump on the sidewalk unless you catch him in the act. It could be he has mental health issues or is drunk or high. You said the feces was there six days later , Did you call public works so they could go clean it up? I know first hand that they are very responsive to such matters. As this city continues to grow I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more of these type of issues and when something does happen and needs to be addressed , call public works so they can take care of it. The city , just like the residents , doesn’t want poop on the streets so we need to all work together to try and make a difficult situation better for all. Call the police if you see this happening or call public works to assist in cleaning it up. The homeless problem isn’t going away over night.

I am so disappointed and disgusted with what the politicians have done to our city. Those gross building block developments are just rotating transient living spaces. God darn it, its disgraceful. People want homes with a yard, stop building on every little parcel of land. Been here 60 years, never seen such crap in my life. Bart just brings in crime, carry people, you’re gonna need it to protect your life and your property. Mark Addiego is a big sellout, too.

wow now we can really call SSF south shitty . I have been saying it for years.
I was half joking then. not anymore. isn’t that near BART ? mission rd ? I see it everywhere . even
Millbrae by the Safeway . homeless guy taking a dirt nap on a bench. people just go about there day like nothing to see here. the mental illness and drug addiction is something totally ignored by our government. from the TOP down to the local level.
no one cares. shameful . these people are sick.
I personally had a friend that was hooked on drugs and had metal problems and preferred to live outside due to paranoia. even gave up his section 8 housing to go live in a van.
that way he can move around when his paranoia (demons) said it was time to move. hope he is OK . he would not listen to me. his problems where out of my wheel house.
got to stop the handouts and start giving hand ups ! stop the aiding and abetting of drug use ! that is the liberal mindset I guess? they don’t address the problem . just try to manage it . keep them stoned and stupid. not a good plan. someone to poop on a busy street in broad daylight on the sidewalk obviously has serious problems. drugs or mental . or is this the NEW normal? hope not. our city council is totally worthless. don’t get me started.

Agree, let’s hold our City Council and City government officials accountable. It’s a shame that this is now the condition of our city — just wait until more density housing comes to our own quaint city.

I agree that we need to hold our representatives available, but why will density housing worsen this problem?

Well, we had a chance to get something back from those corporations (Measure DD), but people bought into the fear-mongering that now-Mayor Nicolas and Genentech were selling. The citizens have to take some of that blame now.

Really, do you realize these companies don’t need to stay in SSF. Over taxing companies will drive them away. And all these people will be out of jobs. Genentech employs so many people and they treat their employees very well. The state should be taking care of childcare not our cities. Put the blame on Newsom, he’s responsible not us voters. And maybe if they quit spending all this money on homeless that doesn’t seem to be working anyway. Maybe spend it on childcare and education, both are lacking.

The ‘State’ has no money and any funds they do have are from taxpayers. So please explain why taxpayers should pay for childcare for others?

Many couples hold off on having children until they can afford the expenses and/ or live very frugally to be able to do so. Or they move to a less expensive region.

While I agree taxing the businesses for personal choices is not the answer, neither is taxing the people. Where are the non-profits who receive tax benefits to be the in between help?

Thank you for your comment Michele. But I disagree with the state not having money, especially when I see billions of dollars spent on all kinds of programs for “people’s personal choices”.

I would say, let’s agree to disagree! 😉

Hi Moja – The State has been spending like a ‘drunken sailor’ making it appear we are flush with funds but the day of reckoning is coming, and soon, as much as I wish that was not the case.

You are right, so much spent on people’s personal choices which will be tough to maintain as our economy locally, nationally and world wide shifts.

This will really hurt those with lower and fixed incomes and those who have been living on credit, the most.

Time will tell, fingers crossed! Happy Holidays!

I reported homeless camp on bay trail end of Harbor way months ago still there. I hope they’re not pooping in Colma Creek. You can see it from the back of Costco. I’m a retired city worker from Burlingame they could be just lucky or their government works.
