According to ABC7 News, Gov. Newsom activates the National Guard and Highway Patrol to combat San Francisco’s drug crisis.
Gov. Gavin Newsom has called up the California Highway Patrol and the California National Guard to combat San Francisco’s out-of-control open-air drug market as parts of the progressive-run city descend into chaos.
According to ABC7 News, CHP officers will be deployed across Tenderloin and South of Market neighborhoods, while guardsmen will run intelligence analysis operations behind the scenes. The governor brought the two agencies together as the drug-related deaths in the city jumped 41% in the first quarter.
“As we hopefully wind down the drug market, we also have to make sure that we are winding up support for the people who are going to have a harder time finding drugs.”
San Francisco recorded 200 drug-related overdose deaths in the first three months of the year compared with 142 in the same period last year. Homelessness doubled as junkies littered the streets in tent cities while crime soared.
