Rampant drug dealing and vagrant activity in a San Francisco alley prompted one desperate resident to take matters into his own hands, as he erected a barrier to block unwanted traffic, according to reports.
An anonymous resident of Ingleside says he constructed the plywood wall out of frustration as city officials have neglected to mitigate issues that are causing major safety concerns and a slump for nearby businesses.
“This walkway has been a burden on city resources for some time now,” the resident told ABC7 under condition of anonymity. “The walkway requires multiple trips a week for power washing and city records confirm that over 100 calls were received for emergency services.”
Business owner Tim Zaracotas corroborated those concerns, saying, “The city has completely forgotten about this particular alley that always will be complained about. Just try to keep it nice and clean and get rid of all these people there.”
San Francisco Public Works granted permission for construction of the wall, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
“In emails to the city I obtained in a public records request, homeowners living near Ingleside Pathway describe, frankly, a nightmare,” the Examiner reports.
“One family, which includes a 2-year-old son and 6-month-old daughter, found themselves shocked awake at night by ‘screaming, swearing, fighting’ in the pathway, have found ‘needles in our front yard’ and have had their shed broken into by people they claimed were homeless, and who gained access to their yard from Ingleside Pathway.”
The owner of a local nail salon described a filthy scene that has become synonymous with San Francisco’s reputation.
“They come in here, they pee there, they poo there. Every day,” Tom Pan told the Examiner. “The police cannot do anything, it’s dirty and disgusting. In the summertime on a hot day, I can’t even open my window because of the smell.”
#Update | The plywood wall was removed but the anonymous neighbor who placed it said they’re working on a gate.
Why? To keep the homeless and drug dealers out of the alley.

The plywood wall has since been taken down, but the resident who erected it is reportedly working on installing a gate.
Infowars recently reported on San Francisco residents in another neighborhood funding a project to place boulders along the street to discourage vagrants and drug addicts from congregating there.
