The San Francisco Police Department says it will no longer tolerate lewd behavior including public sex acts and nudity at a July street fair sponsored by Folsom Street Events, the same group that puts on the annual Folsom Street Fair, a public celebration of sado-masochism.
The event in question, the Up Your Alley Fair, is scheduled for Sunday, July 26, in San Francisco's South of Market District on Dore Alley between Folsom and Howard streets. Last years event resulted in multiple complaints to the Office of Citizen Complaints against patrol officers assigned to cover the event. Citizens complained that the officers ignored blatant public indecency during the fair.
An anonymous photographer provided police with photos of men performing oral sex, urinating in public, and masturbating from second floor windows overlooking the fair, reported the Bay Area Reporter, a San Francisco-based weekly that serves the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. The photos were also posted on a web site, www.zombietime.com. (Because of the explicit nature of the images depicted on the web site, California Catholic Daily will not post a link to the site. Readers who are considering checking out the web site for themselves are advised that the images are obscene and disturbing.)
"The fair promoters are the ones who have to take charge; this is their event, San Francisco Police Lt. Nicole M. Greely told the Reporter. If they don't run it properly, they will not be having it again. If this event doesn't go well, we can't continue to approve their permit unless it is safe for everyone involved."

Can anyone say “When Pigs Fly”. Lol
Now what will the freaks do on a Sataurday night??
They are biting off more than they can chew, LOL
If I were a SF Cop, you would need to pay me quadruple over-time and give me a biohazard suit to work that event.
For years Barney abandoned it to the perverts, and now he wants control again?
What gets me is this kind of stuff has always gone on in the gay community yet never does the media report on it. Let a breast get flashed and its big news but not when it comes to homosexuals.
Does this 'anonymous' photographer go by the Freeper handle of Zombie? Sure sounds like the stuff he photographed and reported about last year. It's still up on his blog.
I doubt it!
When you throw a frog into a boiling pot of water, the frog will do everything it can to escape. If you set the frog into a pan of cool water and slowly bring to a boil, it will sit there and cook. That is what SF has been doing by allowing these behaviors in the first place. Now they think they are going to be able to curb the activities? Good luck with that.
Yes that is who posted it. People need to do more of that. Catch liberals in their native habitats with their hair/pants down.
Oh, what a nice way to celebrate life...sheesh...how far some have fallen...
Pelosi voters. Right? Isn’t this her constituency?
San Francisco Police will no longer tolerate public sex acts
They will get accused of hate crimes and bigotry.
I've believed for years that it was time for us to have some public hissy fits, nothing else has worked!
Fire hoses provide a viable and nonlethal option, and have the advantage of cleaning up the area as well...
Ironic, isn’t it? SF officials being accused of hate crimes and bigotry! I’ve got to stock up on popcorn.
