San Francisco? Really?

A protest march in San Francisco against the police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, turned ugly as demonstrators smashed windows and hurled objects at police, hitting one officer with a brick and another with a bottle. Police responded by making arrests.

The violence occurred around 9:30 p.m. Friday after the protesters had marched through a downtown packed with Black Friday shoppers to protest the Missouri shooting of a black man by a white police officer.

One officer was given stitches at a hospital after a protester threw a bottle that struck an officer in the face, Sgt. Monica Macdonald said. Another officer was hit in the chest by a brick.

Police made arrests, but MacDonald said it was too soon to determine how many.


The protesters were probably from Oakland, right across the bay. But still, I can’t recall of ever hearing about anything like that in San Francisco before.

    None of this has anything to do with justice or that thug Brown. Just an excuse to commit crime, period. Worthless scum.

    Organized by occutard communists.

    A different time but you should have been in south SF in the early 1970’s. Great fun: the SF tac squad at one time beat the shit out of a bunch of protesters on Holloway Av outside of (then) SF State.

    Nah, they pull that shit all the time. I used to work there.

    You should see what REALLY goes on at those monthly Critical Mass things. Those little rich kid lefties get away with whatever they want in that town. I hope it burns to the ground soon…

Play nice.
