A California pro-family activist says San Francisco would be a better place if it had leaders who recognized sin and personal accountability.
Walgreens has permanently shuttered at least ten stores in San Francisco since the city leaders decided to leave shoplifting unchecked. According to a city ordinance, shoplifting of less than $900 dollars of merchandise is a misdemeanor offence – an ordinance the vast vagrant population knows and is exploiting.
"Just fifteen minutes after an Inside Edition crew showed up at the drugstore, we found this guy jumping over the front counter, taking an air-bed, and leaving the store on his scooter – no questions asked, no one stopping him," a news report recounted in October.
Also, since the pandemic began, San Francisco has been buying vagrants drugs and alcohol to keep them from going out and spreading COVID-19. It is costing the city about $5,000 a month per tent, or $61,000 a year for each tent.
Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, is disgusted but not shocked.
"This is what you get when the wicked seize a city," he submits. "This is what you get with Democrat rule: Sin does not exist. Personal responsibility and accountability don't exist."
He says San Francisco needs new management.
"The Democrats are doing the devil's work in San Francisco," asserts Thomasson. "If there were conservative Christians in charge of San Francisco, transients wouldn't be given anything but incentives to check into transformative, Christian-based rehabilitation programs."
If they refused the help, then they would be arrested.
"If San Francisco wanted to rid itself of transients that commit crime and dirty up the city, it would get hard on transients," the SaveCalifornia.com president concludes.
