The homeless and drug-addicted were brawling in San Francisco’s streets amid garbage and poor conditions as officials openedly sought solutions to the city’s open drug market problems.

J. Terrell captured the wild scene on video while he was out for an evening stroll in San Francisco’s SoMa neighbourhood.

“On my evening walks. SOMA isn’t secure. He wrote that it was just a coincidence. Love the scent of crackle and poop. He wrote, “Beautiful San Francisco,” on Twitter. 

The attached footage shows two homeless men – one shirtless – on the ground fighting as  a third man is seen whacking the shirtless addict with a broom as the bystanders stand around watching the fracas unfazed by the chaotic event. 

This viral video now has more than 2 million views.

The anarchy is characterized by a barking dog that is constantly barking at the couple wrestling on the ground. Another person can be seen picking up a pair sneakers and placing it in a bag, before walking off. 

‘Hey cops. Someone is yelling “cops!” in the background

The frenzy was disrupted once a man on an electric scooter came racing by pulling up to the pandemonium as the fighting ends.

Every man fighting gets back up and acts as though nothing has happened.

On Tuesday, officials in San Francisco revealed a scheme they claimed was deliberately “soft touch” to tackle the city’s ongoing drug crisis. However, the plan insists that no-one will go to jail under it but leaves little information about the solution.

With nearly 1,700 fatal overdoses since the start of 2020, San Francisco’s drug crisis has resulted in almost double the death toll of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In June, the city’s mayor, London Breed, announced that their notorious taxpayer-funded open-air drugs market will close at the end of the year.

However, Tuesday’s plan, called ‘San Francisco Recoverys’, appeared to be an attempt to return to open-air markets.

The plan called for’supervised intake sites’ where drug users could safely consume substances while under medical supervision. This would prevent accidental overdose death.

The group had a variety of requests to address the crisis. However, they asked the six city commissions and 21 city departments for ideas within 90 days.

Matt Dorsey (supervisor) stated that the objectives were intentionally’soft touch’.

Business owners in San Francisco's Castro District are calling on city leaders to provide more beds for the unhoused community, and are threatening civil disobedience, including withholding taxes, if the city doesn't address the growing issues in front of their storefronts

San Francisco’s Castro District business owners are asking city leaders for more housing. They are also threatening civil disobedience and withholding taxes if they don’t resolve the issues at their storesfronts.

They include electronically-tagging users and having police officers track them down and confiscate their drugs if they wander into known drug-dealing areas.

Supervisors in San Francisco want people to be placed into jobs and trained, rather than sent to prison if they agree to end drug dealing. They also desire ‘right-to-recovery’ zones close to treatment centers. There is zero tolerance for dealing or possessing drugs.

They also called for supervision of drug use sites.

According to The San Francisco Standard, Dorsey stated that while nobody is going to prison, “This is an effective way to interrupt the drug market scene and to disrupt it,” 

Dean Preston, the Tenderloin Supervisor, has asked for a hearing on September 29 to examine drug overdose death.

Preston stated that he was determined to ensure health professionals, and not politicians, are responsible for the development and implementation of an overdose prevention program.

Three months later, the Linkage Centre, the existing scheme that was being funded, the Linkage Center had been denied funding, their outline emerged.

Homeless drug addicts lay out used clothes for sale to try to make money in front of closed businesses in the Tenderloin District on Friday

On Friday, homeless drug addicts set up used clothing for sale in an attempt to earn money at closed businesses in Tenderloin District.

In June, it was revealed that the $19 million facility treated only one out of 1,000 patients and did not reduce fatal overdoses.

In the center of San Francisco, the Linkage Center at the Tenderloin opened its doors in January. It was designed to assist the large number of drug addicts and homeless in finding help.

Critics say that the $75,000 per month rental of the property has not helped curb the city’s crime problem. The city recently recalled its woke DA Chesa Boudin after a rise in criminal activity, which was blamed for a decline in quality of living. 

They also noted that only 0.1 per cent of users visited the site for treatment during the initial five months, despite an estimated $19million in ongoing costs. 

Just 18 out of 23,367 users of drugs who visited the website between January-April were referred for treatment.  

The rate of overdose deaths hasn’t declined significantly: the office of chief medical examiner recorded 49 deaths in January, while the number was 45 last month.

Because so few drug users who came to the center were connected to meaningful forms of assistance, the center decided to quiet remove the word “linkage” from the title.
