Interesting vid of an American who returned home to San Fransisco ,for a visit , after 2 years overseas.

The inner city is now like a ghost town . Most shops shut & bordered up, once busy commuter trains now empty
He mentions that covid has split the country in 2 , extremists on both sides dividing everyone .

Most stupid thing was San Fran local govt decided to mandate not prosecuting anyone caught shoplifting less than US$1000 value. The shoplifters know they will never get procescuted & cops will not even show up . Another nail in the coffin for their shops

Do you think this is the way NZ, or Ak is heading ? CBD's empty . Public transport empty . Crime just accepted & left unpunished .
