We still have “uncontrolled” drug dealing, retail robberies and “repeated violent attacks” on Asians.


On CNN’s “OutFront” Friday, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said downtown has a “really out-of-control drug problem” and “recurring violent attacks” against Asian Americans and “endemic retail theft.” . there are still unresolved issues.

Jenkins hit back at Twitter CEO Elon Musk for his comments about crime in the city after the killing of Cash App founder Bob Lee: “Ever since I took over, I’ve realized that we have a public safety problem. Of course, the voters of our city chose to recall the former DA because they didn’t think he was up to the job of a district attorney and protecting them. I’m here as a former prosecutor, and I think we should be prosecuted. I think we need to address the persistent problems on the streets. So his freeing of repeat offenders who brutally tweet something about me or my office couldn’t be further from the truth. I also, as I said earlier, cautioned anyone against any speculation or speculation as to what led to Mr. Lee’s murder. We cannot control target killing. These are things that happen anywhere, but of course I understand that we have a lot of work to do in terms of public safety in this city.

He said that since taking office, he has “focused on a really out-of-control drug problem in our downtown. We’ve seen Asian Americans experience multiple violent attacks in our city. We’ve had a lot of retail theft. All these issues are still being resolved. That’s why I said that I’m going to partner with the San Francisco Police Department and step in to make sure that anyone who commits a crime in this city faces real consequences. »
