A refusal to admit it's a drug consumption problem and hiding behind income inequality

Sacramento's homeless population soars by 67% in three years and is now HIGHER than San Francisco while robbery rockets 42% and rapes nearly double amid drug taking epidemic

  • Sacramento has a little over 5,000 homeless in the city limits living in vehicles and tents. That's slightly higher than the 4,400 in San Francisco 
  • However, the number becomes more stark when factoring in the city's population numbers - only 525,000 people live in Sacramento versus San Francisco's 874,000 
  • Local Democrats blame the surge on a lack of affordable housing, but other experts say it's down to drugs
  • Sacramento DA Anne Marie Schubert says the problem is on drug abuse and a mental health crisis
  • She is running as an independent for California Attorney General
