San Francisco is full of crap.
Literally as well as figuratively. Its leftist ruler’s shitty ideas have led to an epidemic of homeless people treating its streets and sidewalks as if they comprised one giant all-gender bathroom. The City by the Bay has finally been moved to act after its residents registered tens of thousands of complaints about the staggering amount of feces strewn about downtown areas. Enter “The Poop Patrol.” This squad will consist of five staffers and a supervisor who will each don protective gear and scour “brown zones” in search of human excrement. The team will be provided with a special vehicle replete with a steam cleaner and disinfectant. Talk about your shitty jobs.
But maybe not. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that each member of this elite unit will cost The Golden City $184,678 in salary and benefits. Frisco’s mayor, London Breed (!), acknowledged the cost, saying: “We’re spending a lot of money to address this problem.”
The city already spends $12 million a year tidying up homeless encampments, $2.8 million a year for a crew to wash down these camps and remove any biohazards, $3.1 million annually for portable toilets, well over $1 million per annum for the provision and cleanup of needles used by illegal drug addicts, and, well, you get the idea.
And now, $830,977-a-year for the new “Poop Patrol” to “actively hunt down and clean up human waste.” The Chronicle blithely noted, “the poop patrollers earn $71,760 a year, which swells to $184,678 with mandated benefits.”
To which one can only reply, “no shit?”
