A city health official declared the OccupySF encampment in Justin Herman Plaza an "imminent public health hazard" Tuesday after observing that the site has become a Port-A-Potty for protesters, filled with poop, piss, and vomit. 

Department of Public Health officials have been inspecting the camp twice daily -- and working with the Homeless Outreach Team to offer protesters shelter. On Tuesday, Richard Lee, the DPH director of environmental health regulatory programs, penned a memo to the city's Rec and Park Department, which has jurisdiction over the plaza, that reads like a report from the poopy heart of darkness.

Here's the text of the memo, which DPH released to SF Weekly Tuesday night:
"Evidence of excrement, urine, and vomit were observed throughout the park and
surrounding areas. Fecal material was observed on stairs and grass. A container of
human waste was observed along the Embarcadero side of the park. Containers of
urine were transported by occupants to the Decaux Public Restroom. The Public
Restroom is currently inoperable. Several piles of vomit were observed along
the Embarcadero side of the park. Pile of feces and tampons found at a nearby
pathway. Flies and urine odor observed along pathway.

These conditions constitute an Imminent Public Health Hazard.

Lee wrote that the camp is in violation of San Francisco Health Code, Article 11, on prohibited public health nuisances.

The DPH isn't the only agency complaining about the camp. According to the OccupySF website, Police Chief Greg Suhr delivered the camp a letter Tuesday entitled "You Are Subject To Arrest," complaining about the temporary structures, open flames and unsanitary conditions. The protesters don't seem too worried, according to news reports

DPH spokeswoman Eileen Shields didn't respond to a message on Tuesday night as to what all this shit means for San Francisco's camp.

I am so sorry that our country is suffering from this assault by people who have nothing to do with their time except for trying to get their way in everything, on every issue. No one is allowed to disagree with them or they are called foul names and cursed at. They will not be happy until they are all rich and doing nothing to earn it. That is what it looks like to me. In our nation, there is no excuse for using the public parks for bathrooms, making them useless to the taxpayers who paid for them to be constructed and maintained. These people don't seem to understand that the cities cannot afford to clean up after them indefinitely. As you sow, of such shall you reap. 

WINNING!!!
WINNING!!!

I'LL SULLY YOUR FUCKING FACE MOTHER FUCKERS ! ! !

Sure have a lot of folks obsessed with poop and piss . .. well, open bathrooms if you don't want folks doing it outside, ain't just "the homeless" who get caught out with a full bladder and no public restrooms!  I was there all night and we did tidy up quite a bit, it's actually cleaner than before the "occupation" began.  DPH dudes seems so sad they couldn't find any poop, piss, rates, or garbage this lovely AM!

That explains 2 things: It's cleaner and your potty mouth is stinkier then usual from all the c0ck you sucked and the shit you ate!  Thanks for cleaning up, though I imagine your tongue must be tired!

ps. Use paper next time it's easier to clean up though not as good for the environment. ;)

Uh, a few decades ago, there were plenty of public toilets, even public showers.  DiFi began shutting 'em down.  So it's not just the homeless who urinate and defecate in public.  Opening up some facilities would work.  DiFi's "solution", those wretched green things, are a disaster, and do not provide sufficient sanitation even when there are no homeless there.  Try dealing a little better with causality.

Please post your address and neighborhood so we can build outhouses, public toilets, restrooms, showers and free housing for your beloved when we have the funds.  I'm sure you'll be much pleased with that causality.

Please post your name so you can demonstrate you're not too pussy to own your words.  Are you ashamed of what you spew>?  No wonder you won't own your words.  Anonymous *(unts like you should be laughed at!

It's good to see you have balls because here I thought you only had a skanky pussy between your wide open legs.  Better get a can of raid because I think I see flies circling around the dead fish you hide in there.

I live in North Beach by the clubs.  I'd love to have public facilities so those jerks from the East Bay who come here, swill cheap booze in their cars, parked on our streets, piss and puke everywhere.  But I doubt those jerks would be responsible enough to use toilets.  Wish they'd leave their guns home too.  And remind me that if you're ever in need, if your home burns, if you get made homeless by a fire, earthquake, not to provide you with toilets and showers.  And stop comeing to my town and my hood and puking all over.  And don't expect any free housing.  You should have been responsible enough not to live ina ffireproof, earthquake proof, home.

Good for you!  Right on those reclaimed land and I hope your friend with the napoleonic complex arrogant pesky helps you out when your shack burns to a crisp. 

So only east bay people are enthralled and spend money on cheap booze and lap dances at the clubs?  Are you mad that you aren't getting that kind of attention because you were fired?  You know when you reach a certain aget, it's time to retire from the stripping businesss and take social security.

Don't worry about me, I'm on a lot more solid ground then you and thanks for letting us know that you're admitting that you're actually a xenophobe and nothing more.

But what would one expect?  I organizers of these "occupiers" recruited the homeless and local side-walk residents from the haight and golden gate park by promising $ and food.  They were squatting at the BofA building a month ago and used the little alley way across as their defecation stall and a place to take a shot or snort a hit.

Ever hear of Hoovervilles?  If you shut down all public toilets, don't provide enough places for people to sleep, what are they to do?  Just because YOU don't like looking at them, that does not mean that your selfish karma is anything but the yapping of one of the lapdogs of the corporate masters.  Would you prefer the solution of rounding them up and killing them, which worked wonders to clean up the cities of Germany in the thirties?  They were just trying to make things safe for FAMILIES! 

So you assert you know the motives of people you've never met?  Isn't that SPECIAL?

 Ms. Frantic - sounds like you have a failure to understand so let me clarify and educate you a little about our town:

1.  As you pointed, the establishments were shut down by a life long left winger that has profited substantially from Mayor to Senator.

2.  The use of public restrooms were for the public to relieve themselves and not turn into an encampment for shooting up, fornication and other illicit use.

3.  Do we have the funds?  Last I check we're facing a deficit.  Perhaps in your reality that's not the case.

4.  Providing people with place to sleep?  Yeah, that's call the projects.  A failed experiment on a multitude of levels.

5.  All these decisions were made through the casting of ballots by voters.

6.  Yes, I did see the well dressed Marin mom with 2 babies in tow decked in branded attire telling them exactly how to behave, act and chant with a clear stipulation of quid-pro-quo.

And of course my favorite when all else fails in reason and logic is to trot out the nazi argument.

But finally, it's not that I don't like LOOKING at them.  I don't like the foul noisome stench that emanates and chock off my free air in San Francisco and degrade my karma.

So next time you start one of your ill informed rabid chihuahua rants think how special you really are not.  You're just a nobody yapping at the hydrant.

So Ms. Frantic, your best retort is a juvenile insult pawned off from someone else by insulting their mother?  But I've heard cum is good for a woman, maybe you can save some of your friend's last few impotent drops/tinkle of black cum instead of buying expired face moisturizers from walgreens.

Yes, I do live in SF.  I do work in SF.  I do vote in SF.  I am native to SF.  Bugger off?  No, I don't think so.  I think you have shown a remarkable but consistent failure to understand the most basic of function of a public toilet so I'll dumb down to a level you can begin to comprehend: They are for you to shit, pee and wash your hands.  Yes, they are public but their function is NOT to shoot up, sleep or have sex. 

Perhaps they are so dear to you because you have fond memories of being a cum dump?  You should hold your mouth open so we can all deposit our bodily waste and fluids in there for you to enjoy.  So go on and install one right in front of your house so that we may partake of your generosity.

"You are the load your mother should have swallowed" --Munch  Public restrooms are for the public, no matter what their status, and plenty of those with homes can't find toilets when the need them.  And why don't you stop by?  You DO live in SF, don't you?  No?  Work here?  No?  Vote here?  No?  Then bugger off, smegbreath.
