Lib City Residents Fed Up With THIS!

(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Suffering under the yoke of leftist political insanity for years now, some Americans in San Francisco, one of the capitals of woke progressivism, are now suing the city after they have been abandoned to their fates in its worst neighborhood ridden with crime, homelessness, and open-air drug markets.

The lawsuit in question has been initiated by residents of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, The Daily Caller reports, citing The San Francisco Chronicle.

The lawsuit is spearheaded by four anonymous residents of the Tenderloin district, alongside the Phoenix and Best Western hotels.

The legal claim accuses city officials of fostering an environment where open-air drug markets thrive and of exhibiting a tolerance towards unlawful activities in the area.

This legal challenge is one of several confronting the city, highlighting a polarized debate over its handling of crime and homelessness.

The Coalition on Homelessness, a nonprofit dedicated to aiding the homeless population, accuses the city of enforcing homeless ordinances with excessive harshness.

Meanwhile, the University of California (UC) College of the Law, San Francisco, contends that the city’s approach has been too lenient.

The increase in criminal activities in the Tenderloin has been alarming, with a reported 240% surge in crime from August 2022 to August 2023, according to city crime statistics.

“While we understand and share the frustration of Tenderloin businesses and residents, the City is making progress in reducing crime, disrupting open-air drug markets, and addressing homelessness, all while complying with the preliminary injunction issued in the Coalition on Homelessness case,” commented Jen Kwart, representing San Francisco Attorney David Chiu.

Further complicating the city’s legal battles, UC Law San Francisco has lodged a complaint alleging the city’s failure to adhere to a 2020 settlement that required the eradication of homeless encampments around the university.

“The city blithely treats the Tenderloin as a place where this type of harmful activity can happen on the streets and sidewalks, and it’s inconceivable that they’d allow it in other neighborhoods,” stated Matthew Davis, a legal representative for both the UC College of Law San Francisco and the Tenderloin residents.

In a separate lawsuit, the Coalition on Homelessness argued that the city’s treatment of homeless individuals infringes on constitutional rights, specifically citing violations of the Eighth and Fourth Amendments due to the removal of homeless individuals from public spaces and the confiscation of their possessions.
