A flood of new images from the streets of San Francisco have brought into stark focus the extent of the city’s ongoing homelessness problem which has driven some businesses to threaten to withhold tax payments.

Rows of tents were pictured lined up outside businesses with people’s belongings strewn across the sidewalk.

Homeless individuals, some of whom were struggling with clear physical ailments as well as drug and alcohol addiction, sat in the street right outside entrances to residential properties and small businesses struggling to bounce back after highly restrictive Covid laws forced them to close, destroying revenues.

Some images depicted addicts openly smoking illegal drugs on the sidewalk and passing out on the asphalt in the middle of the day.

The number of homeless people in San Francisco was tallied in February at almost 8,000, the second highest number of any year since 2005 according to the official government count which takes place every three years.

Overall crime in the city has also increased 8 per cent versus last year with 12, 18 and 8 per cent increases in incidences of assault, theft and rape respectively.
