St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco has been drenching the homeless that dared to try to get some solace there. Sprinklers were illegally installed high above the alcoves in the building that were timed to go off randomly, at least two times a night. This has been going on for the last TWO YEARS! The story was first released by Doug Sovern on KCBS radio.

Excerpt from story by KCBS
The shower ran for about 75 seconds, every 30 to 60 minutes while we were there, starting before sunset, simultaneously in all four doorways. KCBS witnessed it soak homeless people, and their belongings.
