Homeless become increasingly violent across San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The homeless problem here in San Diego seems to be getting worse, and recently we have been reporting on several homeless people becoming violent.

An incident near a youth center became violent when a man wielding a hammer went after several nearby unsheltered individuals.

This is just the latest addition to a growing homeless crisis here in San Diego. Many believe more needs to be done to tackle the issue.

Dan Shae from The Lucky Duck Foundation elaborated on some polices he believes need to be implemented, and politicians who need to be held accountable.

For example, Shea pointed to San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria who has been telling us that he is doing everything he can do. Shea responded saying, “well stop doing it because it clearly isn’t working.”

Shea also called out SDPD Chief Nisleit, as he has yet to push back against Mayor Gloria’s failed policies. “It’s your officers who are out there, your officers who want to do a good job, so where are you on the issue,” he asked.

Following the segment with Dan Shea, KUSI’s Good Morning San Diego team questioned why our elected leaders refuse to act on, and take responsibility for their failures on homelessness.
