SF DA Chesa Boudin Announces Opposition to Mayor London Breed’s Tenderloin Crime Crackdown Plan

Boudin, other city leaders favor evidence-based alternatives

“Right now in San Francisco it’s easier to get high than it is to get help. That has to change. I will do everything in my power to make the Tenderloin safe for all of San Francisco. I also plan to continue to demand in partnership with all these other elected leaders, that we do what we know will work, and stop dumping resources into failed strategies.”

“The last thing we need is to clog up every available court with a misdemeanor possession of a pipe charge. Those cases will make it impossible to secure justice or closure in violent crimes.”

While many in the city remain opposed to arresting drug users and are more in favor of rehab, other Tenderloin residents have also agreed that more policing is needed.

“What the city has been doing is not working,” explained Tenderloin resident Garvey Harrison, a former drug user who now sponsors multiple Narcotics Anonymous members in the city, to the Globe on Monday. “Arresting drug users gets us nowhere. They need support and rehab to get better. That worked for me, and I try and pay that back by helping others with the similar addictions.”

“But what we really need are more police here. More arrests of people polluting the district with drugs. And police being around more to keep the crime in check. We need them to respond when we call for help.”

“And what the Mayor wants to do, a mix of more policing and more social help, would be a lot better for the district. Not perfect, but better. Boudin, I don’t know the man, but he should move to the district and we can see how long it takes before he changes his tune on fewer police and arresting people. A lot of us regret voting for him.”

Breed’s crackdown plan is currently being implemented in the district.

  1. Thank God for Chesa Boudin! America looks to San Francisco and California to be a beacon on the hill of Democrat failure. America learns by observing the toilet on the Bay. What the heck is Mayor Breed doing by enacting sensible policies? The one bright spot during this 2-year scamdemic and 1 year of Biden has been watching the Democrats screw everything up like a soup sandwhich. Why is Mayor Breed trying to take this away from me?

  2. Example #347,923 of why most of what’s wrong with California originates from the bay area. Why would any sane person think that the son of two convicted domestic terrorists, who was raised by his domestic terrorist godparents, would do anything to protect citizens? “Don’t increase police patrols. It might hurt the feelings of bad guys. Not that their bad guys, they’re just misunderstood, like my friend Hugo Chavez.”

    1. Cops are subhuman animals that kill and torture people for fun. If you support their presence, then I will go out of my way to find your IP and send my east European mob buddies to kill you
