        Sorry, those laws aren’t enforced in our neighborhood, just like all the other quality of life preserving laws.

          “Quality of life preserving laws” is code for laws against poor people like sit/lie.

          As Anatole France wrote, “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.”

            No, it’s code for people shouldn’t be allowed to urinate and defecate all over the streets or stumble around drinking in public harassing passers-by, it has nothing to do with class. Do you even live in the Mission? The only place in the city sit/lie is enforced at all is in the Haight.

    Yes, I live in the Mission and I’ve seen the police enforce sit/lie in this neighborhood. You can bet they don’t enforce it against well to do people in the Marina. Even if it were only enforced in the Haight, it is still a law criminalizing poverty. I stand by my comment. Where are homeless people supposed to urinate and defecate?
