‘Clean up after yourselves’: San Francisco mayor plans to ask homeless nicely not to poo in streets

San Francisco’s mayor has an idea to stop the homeless pooping in the street: ask them to stop – or to at least clean up. She blames charities for San-Fran’s poo-gate, saying they should teach people to “respect the community”.

The city is in crisis – vagrants brazenly use drugs on the streets and trash is strewn across footpaths and roads… but watch where you step, as you could also find yourself ankle-deep in human poop. After reports showed that complaints about human feces have doubled in the last three years, the newly-minted mayor, London Breed, pledged to tackle the issue head on – by simply asking the homeless to take more pride in their community.
