A video uploaded to Twitter shows San Francisco elementary school students walking through an “open-air drug market” to get home from school
Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district, located in San Francisco, California, has many unaddressed issues. From homeless to drug addiction, San Francisco can be a mess. And this mess is impacting young school children every single day.
A video uploaded to Twitter by a self-described “recovering addict” shows children walking home from school through an “open-air drug market” overrun by homeless addicts.
Now ask yourself this question would you want your children to walk through this squalor just to get home from school? @JoeBiden @VP @SpeakerPelosi @SenFeinstein @LondonBreed @SFPDChief #DoBetter #democrats #politics #Police #DRUGS #SanFrancisco #California #crime #DoYourJob #NA pic.twitter.com/ZBa8PApgtC

“This is no back ally. This is the main artery of the city that has been hijacked bye [sic] drug dealers and now is Pure filth,” the Twitter user writes in a separate Tweet.
This drug addiction and homeless problem in the California city stands in stark contrast to the seemingly content youth, who are presumably (and sadly) used to these types of scenes.
San Francisco’s homelessness and drug problems are ones that the city has failed to address properly.
From the Daily Mail:
The open-air drug den in the video, which the young children are forced to walk through, is just a block away from the city’s notorious taxpayer-funded Linkage Center, which quickly became a site for addicts to take illicit drugs on the street in broad daylight.
The Tenderloin Linkage Center was set up in January in a bid to direct the city’s homeless drug addicts towards services that could help them, including medical care and rehab.
It is situated close to San Francisco’s famous Union Square and Civic Center, with many locals claiming the facility has made the once pristine tourist destination a grimy hotspot for crime and drug-taking.
Each action the city has made to try and correct the problem has been too soft, and ultimately backfired. They have resulted in an even more open and centralized collective of drug-addicted homeless people taking up the main streets of the city, and now school children are exposed to needles on the streets and risk witnessing overdoses every single day.
This is Nancy Pelosi’s home district. This is her hell.
