NBA legend Bill Walton has had enough of the crime and homelessness in his beloved hometown of San Diego.

After getting assaulted, Bill called out the Dem leaders, saying: “You have failed us, I can no longer say that SD is a safe place to live.”

Walton continued: “The criminal element has taken over our streets and our quality of life has deteriorated.”

He went on to say that the city’s leaders need to “wake up” and do something about the crime and homelessness problem.

“If they don’t, I’m afraid that San Diego will become a city that people are going to start fleeing from, instead of flocking to,” he concluded.

Walton’s comments come as the city of San Diego has been struggling to deal with a growing homeless population and an increase in crime.

In recent months, there have been a number of high-profile crimes, including the murder of a retired police officer and the shooting of a pregnant woman.

The city’s homeless population has also been on the rise, with a recent count finding that there are nearly 8,000 people living on the streets.

Walton continued: “You have failed, us and yourself, you’ve done, and continue to do, nothing. Once again, while peacefully riding my bike early this Sunday morning in Balboa Park, I was threatened, chased, and assaulted by the homeless population, in our park.

“Sadly, and with a broken heart, I can no longer say that my hometown of San Diego, is the greatest place in the world. I can no longer say that SD is a safe, healthy, clean, and beautiful place. 

“I can no longer urge my family, friends, tourists, and businesses to come to SD to live, work, and play.”

“I can no longer say that our neighborhood for the last 43 years is still my dream. I am brokenhearted, [email protected] —clean up our city, and let us reclaim our lives.

“We must fix our homeless crisis. We need engagement, rehabilitation, and constant enforcement, and we need it now.

“You speak of the rights of the homeless, what about our rights, we follow the rules of a functioning society, why are others allowed to disregard those rules.

“Your lack of action is unacceptable, as is the conduct of the homeless population.”

The Mayor of San Diego responded: “Bill’s frustration over our homelessness crisis is shared by people across our city, including the mayor himself, and in cities across the United States.

“As Voice of San Diego has covered, people living on the streets since the pandemic seem to be in worse straits than ever, with more behavioral health and substance abuse issues than we’ve seen prior to the pandemic. 

“In our efforts to address the neighborhood impacts of homelessness – particularly encampments and the trash and unsanitary conditions that result from them – our crews are finding an increase in hording behaviors and anti-social behavior such as vandalism and unwillingness to put trash in available nearby receptacles.”

Despite the challenges, San Diego is still a popular destination for tourists and newcomers. However, if the city’s leaders don’t address the issues of crime and homelessness, that could start to change.
