San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday.

Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.”

“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces”, KNTV’s investigative team reported in February after surveying the city’s streets.

“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” preschool teacher Adelita Orellana told KNTV. “Sometimes they ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”

There are about 7,500 homeless people living in San Francisco according to the city, which will spend nearly $280 million this year on housing services for the homeless.

Breed said San Francisco’s high cost of living cast the city’s homeless onto the streets.

“About 70 percent of the people estimated to be homeless in San Francisco were actually housed in San Francisco before they became homeless,” she said. “We have to make sure people who live here, [and] sadly, people who are homeless here, that they are also held accountable for taking care of our streets.”

It’s unclear how Breed will hold public defecators accountable. She said Friday that harsher penalties for offenders are not on the table.

Instead, she directed her criticism towards homeless advocacy groups, who she said aren’t doing a good enough job teaching their clients how to keep the streets clean.

“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” she said.

Breed promised to address the homeless problem in San Francisco, but some residents don’t have faith she can steer the ship in the right direction.

“Watch your backs — nobody else is,” The Fed Up Populace Campaign told the city’s residents in a full-page ad Friday. (RELATED: Someone Took Out A Full-Page Ad In SF Newspaper To Warn Residents To ‘Watch Your Backs’ For Homeless People)

The ad was signed by an “anonymous disgusted female San Francisco resident (for now).”

Why would the homeless gravitate to one of the most expensive cities in America?  I'm not denying it, just wondering what's there for them.

prospects of free handouts the left claim their give them, only don't when they arrive?

Makes me think of how Lily Allen and J. K. Rowling would spread the idea of everyone opening their doors to migrants, only to not do so themselves with their multiple mansions dotted around the uk.

Thats said, maybe not, maybe its because SF hands out free drugs to them.

If over two thirds of The homeless population used to be housed there, is it maybe not The problem that the homeless drift to an expensive city, but rather that 'ordinary people' move there and become homeless because it's such an expensive city?
Or at least in part?

The weather in San Fran is nice (California in many places is ideal for Hoovervilles, then and now).  San Fran is one of the most expensive cities on Earth.  There are different kinds of junkies, including political junkies ...

No doubt they'd rather live in a less expensive place, they just don't have the means to get to such a haven.

We need communism now!  Especially in San Fran.  Make everything free in San Fran, by order of the D party commissars.

Sorry, the only haven a man can have in this world, is some good on-line porn.

When there is a homeless person who could become a functioning member of society with a little help, why not help?  It's cheaper than homeless shelters and free food.

My guess is many of them lived there for a long time before it was the most expensive city in America. It wasn't until the 1990s that SF really became affordable for the middle-class... it was certainly still a stretch to live there, but it was doable. But as prices and taxes run up, the people who moved there when they could afford it, and the people who were living just on the edge, suddenly couldn't anymore.

At that point, it's one stroke of bad luck before you are sitting on the street unemployed and homeless. And yes, they could "just move", but that is a line that I think is only spoken by people who have never actually been broke before. It's not easy to "just move", and it's damned near impossible when you have no savings.

Gentrification is a trend across the United States, and unfortunately a product of it is an increase in homelessness as indigenous populations are no longer able to afford to live where they do.

Leave it to certain posters gut reaction to be blaming the victims.

Not being sarcastic.  Build more affordable housing?  Not massive apartment buildings, but cheap suburban houses.  People who live in houses tend to feel a reason to care for them.

We have quite Some social housing, relatively speaking, here.
Some do want to take care o a house more, Some don't, Some can't.
But you are right, just shelters won't help much as they allow people to muddle allong in their situation. They need support to get somewhere, and , as you point out, they need somewhere to go.

I agree people needing help also need a direction to go.  I want to help them find a direction.

Please accept the population of China and India.  Belgium has too much land.  More appropriately, move all the people from Zaire there.  King Leopold and all that shit ... so much guilt to expiate, and no Catholic penance to do ... just as Indonesia all needs to move to the Netherlands.  It was the Dutch who makes Krakatoa blow up ... made the native volcano god angry.
