Apparently the riots in San Francisco aren't worthy of coverage by the US media, but are worth covering in Australia.

How might this effect the elections if at all?

Hopefully all of those partying and smoking pot in San Fran will be too drunk or high to vote.

There’s a lot happening, not being covered by the media, being covered by twitter.

Carjackings, 1 stabbing, 2 shootings.

America has , in some ways , become a third world country with a government media complex covering up for the scum . Very sad to say ...

This was Rove’s plan all along; have Texas take a dive last night, so the San Fran freaks are to hung-over to vote today. Look for a Republican sweep of California!

(Wishful thinking, but a possible silver lining to the Texas loss...)

Let’s hope the pervert voters for Pelosi will sleep in today.
I’m happy I’m in Texas, where our teams lose but our politicians win.

Fights, fires as San Francisco Giants win

Because nothing says "hooray, team!" like setting fires and assault.......I never understood that.

About 20 years ago I concluded a West Coast business trip on Super Bowl Sunday. I found a place in San Francisco to watch SF win the game. When it was over I had to make my way to the airport to return home. I remember it being VERY slow going through the streets filling with celebrants. But there was no violence of any kind that I saw, nor do I remember any reports of any violence.

Things sure have changed, and not for the better.

>>Police found a car with slashed tires and a smashed windshield in the Mission District

Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, years ago, about sports rioters.
“I told the guy, why did you turn that car over and set it on fire? He kinda looked at me sheepishly and said...’’Niners’...”
