Artie spent 26 years in prison for homicide. He’s now a part of a debatable scheme to take on medicine, homelessness and crime in San Francisco.
City Alchemy is a charity that appears to ‘pacify’ probably the most unhealthy spaces of San Francisco. They provide former prisoners a task and lodging. In go back they patrol the streets, mitigating drug sellers and seeking to get tough sleepers into safe haven.
San Francisco has poured cash into the mission – after it used to be printed that extra other people died from drug overdoses within the town than of Covid closing yr.
Is that this an intensive strategy to the town’s medicine and homelessness drawback? Or a social experiment being carried out at the maximum prone other people within the town?
