SANTA CRUZ Downtown business owners spent Sunday repairing shattered windows and doors after a May Day rally Saturday night turned into a riot with approximately 250 people marching along Pacific Avenue, some carrying makeshift torches, throwing large rocks and paint bombs, and spray-painting walls with graffiti.
At least 18 businesses suffered damage during the rally in honor of international workers that began at 9 p.m. and escalated into mayhem around 10:30 p.m., police said. Investigators estimated damage at $100,000, though some business owners said it could be more. No injuries were reported.

Doing the jobs Americans don’t want to do...
Tea Party people clean up after ourselves. No breakage. No trash. No litter. No violence.
Damn right wing extremest
So, when was the last time Tea Party folk did something like?
When was the most recent conservative riot?
Santa Cruz should of held a Tea Party.
Tea Party people too busy putting gum wrapper litter in their pockets and not trampling the tulips.
If you follow the Democrat line of BS, then All that damage must’ve been done by little old Tea Party ladies who infiltrated the glorious worker’s demonstrations to ruin their image.
Next they will march, DEMANDING that breaking and entering, vandalism, theft and looting not be criminalized and for police not to enforce those UNFAIR laws.
I mean the business have stuff and the looters didn’t so it is only equitable the looters get that stuff. It is just executing the obama wealth redistribution hope and change.
Bring it all down, man!
My bad, it was the extreme left wing this time and all the other times also all the way back to sixties.
I’ve said it before. Conservatives aren’t naturally violent. If there’s a revolution or a civil war in this country, it’s virtually certain that the leftists will start it.
Notice how hard the paper tried to not name that this was an Pro-illegal immigrant rally.
Typical peaceful lefty demonstration.
Must be the extreme Fox News Tea Party crowd.
>>Ive said it before. Conservatives arent naturally violent. If theres a revolution or a civil war in this country, its virtually certain that the leftists will start it.
However, Conservatives will protect life, property and — especially — family. The left will certainly start it, but the Right will end it.
It’s also virtually certain who will finish it.
