A suspect reportedly “busjacked” a 16 person commuter shuttle at San Francisco International Airport Tuesday afternoon after the van stopped at one of busiest terminals in the United States.
“A man stole a 16-passenger shuttle bus from a driver at San Francisco International Airport Tuesday afternoon,” reports CBS San Francisco. “Nicole Judge, president of shuttle company Skypark, said one of her drivers was ‘busjacked’ just before noon Tuesday when the bus stopped at the airport’s International terminal. San Francisco police later confirmed these details.”
“He said, ‘I’m taking this bus and you can take the next one,’” Judge said. “At first, the passenger assumed the guy knew what he was doing and that he was allowed to do it.”
“The thief drove to Berkeley, where police found the bus abandoned across three lanes of Ashby Avenue,” adds CBS.
The incident comes days after the international hub banned the sale of plastic water bottles throughout the airport.
Strangely, the ban does not apply to soft drinks and many other beverages.
“If you’re flying in to or out of San Francisco International Airport, don’t forget to bring along your reusable water bottle!” reports KRON 4. “Starting Aug. 20, all plastic water bottle sales will be banned at SFO, airport officials announced Friday.”

“SFO will also transition away from single-use plastic food service ware and accessories, as well as limit when food service ware accessories are provided,” adds the website. “Airport officials said it’s being done to reduce the airport’s impact on the environment as well as to advance the airport’s zero waste goal.”
“The policy applies to purified water, mineral water, carbonated or sparkling water, and electrolyte-enhanced water, but does not include flavored beverages such as sodas, teas, or juices,” writes SFO Connect.
'THIRD WORLD NATION’: San Francisco Resident Flee City, Homeless Stats Worse Than Thought, Up 30%
San Francisco residents continued to flee the region in droves in recent months; citing rampant homelessness, widespread drug use, and out-of-control housing costs in one of America’s most expensive cities.
“It has more billionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world, but it also has a homeless problem so severe that it rivals some third-world nations. On any given day you can see souped-up Lamborghinis and blinged-out trophy wives in one part of the city, then walk over a few blocks and see piles of human feces, puddles of urine and vomit caked on the sidewalks. The misery of homelessness, mental illness and drug addiction hits deep in San Francisco and has turned parts of a beautiful city into a public toilet,” reports Fox News.
“As the problem grows, residents are finding themselves at a crossroads. The compassion for those struggling is constantly being challenged by a fear for their own safety and quality of life. It never had to get this bad, say critics, who are appalled that it’s getting worse every day,” adds Fox.
“I won’t visit my son who lives out there again,” Amelia Cartwright told Fox News. “It’s disgusting. I went there a few months ago for the first time and this guy who looked homeless and really beat up spit on me. Can you imagine? He spit on me!”
California’s two-largest cities -San Francisco and Los Angeles- are currently experiencing a “Defecation Crisis,” with both regions struggling to crack-down on rampant homelessness and public drug use.
“The majority of the nation’s homeless people now live in California. There are myriad causes at work, no doubt. But there was no “defecation crisis”—a term usually associated with rural India—in the 1930s, even with unemployment at 25%, vagabonds roaming the country, and shantytowns and “Hoovervilles” springing up everywhere. Today’s homeless and the hobos of the Great Depression are different in many ways. The triple scourges of drug abuse, mental illness and family breakdown have produced anomie and derangements far deeper than those seen in the 1930s, when the widely shared nature of the economic and psychological distress provided its own grim comfort,” reports the Wall Street Journal.
“In California at least, one is struck by the contrast between the fastidious attention paid to the social duty of scooping up and disposing of dog feces, and the rather more paralyzed and guilty reaction to the plague of human feces. The former is treated as a moral imperative among the enlightened—and the thin plastic bags used as the means to this moral end have so far escaped the fate of plastic straws, well on their way to being outlawed as an environmental outrage. Even social-justice warriors don’t consider it their personal duty, however, to tidy up after their fellow human beings on the streets,” adds the article.
San Francisco’s escalating homeless crisis continues to impact thousands of residents across the Bay Area, with officials confirming they’ve responded to nearly 6,700 reports of “human waste” in the first quarter of 2019 alone.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Residents FLEE SAN FRANCISCO Over Sanctuary City Laws, Rampant Crime
Residents are fleeing the San Francisco area at levels not seen in more than a decade as years of liberal policies take their toll; with locals decrying rampant drug use, Sanctuary City laws, and crippling taxes as the motivating factor to pack up and abandon the City by the Bay.
According to CBS News, more people are emigrating from the Bay Area than are moving in; making the region the “number one place” for out-migration in the nation. The crisis is reaching a fever pitch, with U-Haul business owners refusing to rent vans to those leaving town, fearing they won’t be able to retrieve their vehicles.
“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” said one software engineer. “We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics.”
“Silicon Valley has been this place that is growing. And it was mostly due to people relocating here and relocating from other parts of the world. That’s changing,” said another executive in the technology industry.
Despite new guidelines distributed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, San Francisco refuses to comply with federal immigration policies; declaring itself a Sanctuary City and defying agencies determined to restrict the flow of illegal immigrants into California.
