San Francisco, failed city part 3

5/5 - (5 votes)

We all know that democrat-run San Francisco is a failed city. The homelessness, crime, locked up store shelves, open-air drug use, poop-covered streets, stores closing, and the list goes on and on.

Yet I never did expect this headline:

San Francisco Bay boaters forced to fight off ‘pirates’ as seafaring bandits ravage community

Thieves are getting very creative in California. From the Fox News story:

“Residents living on houseboats and yachts in the San Francisco Bay resorted to physically fighting off seafaring bandits who are ransacking their ships, former harbor master Brock de Lappe said.

Another woman said she rescued a man whose sailboat drifted into the bay without a motor or any way to get back to shore after one of the “pirates,” which is what the resident call the burglars, cut his boat line during an argument. 

“The open shoreline of the (Oakland-Alameda) estuary is littered with sunken wrecks and derelict, end-of-life vessels, and crime has risen to truly intolerable levels,” de Lappe said during a municipal meeting. 

Since the summer, burglars have been using small boat homes to raid yachts and houseboats in the Oakland-Alameda Estuary, which is populated by marinas with over 3,000 slips, to steal anything of value.  Then they either sink the ships or dump whatever is left of the boats miles away in the Oakland Harbor or along its shorelines. 

Mary Spicer, who founded a group of volunteers that has been cleaning the estuary since 2017, canceled their cleanup this year “because of safety concerns” from a particular homeless encampment, where she said there have been violent incidents. “Unfortunately, I don’t feel comfortable bringing children to the site until those are addressed by the city of Oakland,” Spicer said.”

I sound like a broken record:

Seems you get what you vote for. I’m sure there are people there that are not dems but all I can say to them is MOVE. While you can the laws are closing in on us and soon you won’t be able to move some where.

Many have, but not everyone can move. I feel sorry for those residents who didn’t vote Democrat and are stuck there.

DrE . . . You have made an observation that is all too true. This horrendous situation down in California is reminiscent of the garbage going on in Oregon–where liberals are able to out-vote citizens who are actually sane. You are correct in saying–not everyone has the luxury of just picking up and moving.

I am heartsick after reading the info regarding what is going on in various Democrat held cities. Frankly, to counteract the pirates in Oakland–citizens should be free to fend off these attacks by any means necessary, including deadly force. No doubt foreign leaders are laughing their butts off over all the criminal endeavors going on here in the USA. The only option is to pray for our land, and vote these criminal suckers out of office.

This is simply mind boggling. Just when will SF residents have had enough?

Once it gets bad enough you will see a change in the voting it just hasn’t gotten bad enough for them yet it will though oh it will. Hard to believe that our society has devolved into such a dark place for you to raise a family or live out what life you have left.
God is our only hope for a win now.
