SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The uniform of a San Francisco police officer caught fire after a Molotov cocktail was hurled near as an anti-Bush protest Wednesday afternoon in downtown San Francisco.
A large crowd made its way from the Civic Center down Market Street, blocking traffic during the afternoon commute.
"My partner and I are standing here monitoring the crowd and all of a sudden I heard glass breaking, and the bottle apparently hit right there and gasoline spilled and the next thing I know my shoulder is on fire," police officer Gary Constantine told television station KRON.
Just when it looked like the protest was wrapping up in the evening, some protesters sat down in the middle of a busy intersection to block more traffic. The group refused police requests to disperse so they were arrested at the scene, according to police.
A large sign unfurled in front of City Hall read: "Bush step down. Take your whole program with you."
I devoutly hope the SFPD located the goblin who threw it and introduced him or her to Mr. Monadnock.
..who stole the antitank weapon Finns invented and named during the Winter War.
Heh heh heh.
They can eat a free meal while fantasizing they're "political prisoners" who were put in jail by "Bush the dictator" who wants to "destroy free speech."
Leftists always revert to form: If they don't prevail legally, they get violent.
If I was a cop in San Francisco, I think I'd be careful to say "my colleague" or "a fellow officer" instead...
Put me down for the resistance movement behind enemy lines.
Way harsh, Dude.
Forgetting that on the left, gun control means taking people's guns. On the right it means taking your own gun in a firm grip, deep breath...
Did anyone hear about the explosion in front of Peter Kings office in NY? Yesterday, I think..
Fox had a blurb...PK wasn't there, of course, he's in DC.
Remember the rule of six or twelve and keep it wholey.
there was a news clip on it here earlier... a pipe bomb of some sort, behind his office IIRC
