San Francisco’s notoriously woke mayor is calling for ‘more aggressive policing’ in an effort to end ‘the reign of criminals who are destroying our city.’
Mayor London Breed launched an emergency police intervention Tuesday aimed at curbing open drug use, brazen home break-ins and other criminal behaviors taking place in San Francisco’s crime-ridden Tenderloin neighborhood and across the city.
She argued that it’s time San Francisco officials get aggressive and ‘less tolerant of all the bulls*** that has destroyed our city’ and the progressive policies that have allowed criminal behavior to make a mockery of the city’s famed tolerance and compassion.
‘It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,’ she said. ‘And it comes to an end when we take the steps to be more aggressive with law enforcement, more aggressive with the changes in our policies.’
‘All of our residents, our workers and everyone who visits our city should feel safe no matter what part of town they are in. I know San Francisco is a compassionate city. We are a city that prides ourselves on second chances and rehabilitation,’ the mayor said.
‘But we’re not a city where anything goes. Our compassion should not be mistaken for weakness or indifference.’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking Wednesday, slammed the ‘attitude of lawlessness’ sweeping the nation, citing the mobs of robbers have targeted luxury boutiques in her hometown of San Francisco and stores in other cities.
‘It’s absolutely outrageous. Obviously, it cannot continue,’ Pelosi said Wednesday. ‘We cannot have that lawlessness become the norm. And these people have – they coordinate with each other. And they plan traffic patterns and the rest, so that they can reach their goal and depart very quickly.’
Although she said she agrees with the need for change, Pelosi did not endorse the mayor’s plan to increase policing and review zero bail policies.
During her news conference Tuesday, Breed said she plans to introduce legislation that allows law enforcement officers real-time access to surveillance video in certain situations, as well as measures that would make it harder to sell stolen goods.
