    And in typical San Francisco fashion, the city council and mayor have opted rather to deal with the symptoms and not the problem. There’s a huge homeless problem that is never addressed, so we pretend it doesn’t exist and instead come up with costly and stupid solutions while ignoring the root of the problem. Are the homeless the only ones peeing on buildings? Doubtful. But are they likely the majority of offenders? Most definitely.
