    Honestly what is wrong with people?
    Why are we being so mean to each other?

    Two blocks of Ellis street between Leavenworth and Taylor are infested with crimes, drugs and gangs. Ironically, the Tenderloin police station is only a block away and the police officers are don’t care or afraid to patrol in that area!!!
