52. This started before he was president...
While he was governor he shut down dozens of state run mental health clinics. After closing down the, still quite ill, patients were bussed and vaned to the streets of San Francisco (Haight/Ashbury district). They were then unceremoniously dumped onto the streets.
I'm not sure if this was an attempt at killing the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic, a less pointed attempt at punishing the liberal city, or part of a larger dumping plan, but the legend lives on here. I see these poor, demented souls everyday...
:wtf: :wtf:
