Children in San Francisco were videotaped walking past what appeared to be one of the city’s open-air drug dens on their way home from school.
Ricci Wynne posted the video to Twitter last week, writing that the students were getting off the 14 transit line on 8th and Mission streets when they encountered what appeared to be the homeless encampment sprawled on the sidewalk .
« He’s not an ally [sic] », wrote Wynne. « It is a main artery of our city that has been diverted by [sic] drug dealers and now it’s pure filth! »
The video shows a stream of children and other passengers getting off the transit system before the camera cuts to the sidewalk, where a group of apparently homeless people were gathered.

Wynne added: « Now ask yourself this question, would you want your children to go through this misery just to get home from school? »
WARNING: THE VIDEO CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
Wynne tagged a slew of politicians in the post, including President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
Describing himself as a recovering drug addict, Wynne frequently posts videos showing drug addicts and drug paraphernalia on city streets.
The area where Wynne says the video was taken is near the Linkage Center in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, a neighborhood notorious for rampant drug abuse.

The liaison center was intended to connect homeless people and drug addicts to social services, but multiple accounts claimed people were shooting each other or smoking fentanyl inside.
San Francisco recorded 650 overdose deaths last year and at least 700 in 2020. Recovery supporters said every one of those deaths was preventable.
