San Francisco children escorted off a school bus must make their way through a crowd of homeless people living in squalor on a nearby sidewalk, a Video posted on Twitter shows.
“Bye kids, get home safe, okay?” says a man wearing a camouflage jersey as he appears to be leading them off the bus, before panning the camera to reveal a crowded sidewalk who appear to be drug addicts nodding off amidst dirt.
“These little kids have to go through this shit,” says the man at the end of the video. “It’s crazy.”
Last week San Francisco launched a six-month, $3 million program where community workers, not police, will respond to low-level emergency calls about homeless people.
But many on Twitter, where the video has garnered at least 40,000 views, don’t hold out much hope that the city will improve any time soon.
“That’s exactly what politicians like @Sen Blumenthal @ChrisMurphyCT @SpeakerPelosi @tedlieu @RepSwalwell want,” wrote Twitter user Connecticut Mises Caucus. “A broken country while they get filthy rich. They send billions of dollars abroad to get kickbacks while our country rots.”
Many worry about the children.
“Now ask yourself this question. Would you want your kids to go through that misery just to get home from school?” said Twitter user Ricci Wynne, who posted the video, which was captured by the popular Libs of TikTok account.
“These kids got off the 8th and Mission from the 14 in San Francisco. It’s not a back alley, it’s a main artery of our town that was hijacked by drug dealers and now it’s filth,” Ricci Wynne wrote.
