Anarchy, the San Francisco Treat.

The anti-capitalists (it is not really accurate to label them all “anarchists”) are at it again, protesting the meeting of the Group of 8 leaders in Scotland…

…by destroying property and assaulting police officers IN SAN FRANCISCO.

Destroy! Maim! Harm!


San Francisco Chronicle
:

A San Francisco police officer was in serious condition with a head injury and three suspects were in custody Saturday following a demonstration by anarchists who broke windows in the Mission District to protest the gathering of the Group of 8 leaders in Scotland.

Police did not release the name of the officer who was hurt in Friday night’s melee. Deputy Police Chief Greg Suhr said Saturday that the officer was in serious but stable condition with brain swelling at San Francisco General Hospital. He has developed a blood clot, which doctors hope to dissolve before he is released, Suhr said.

The department’s spokeswoman, Maria Oropeza, said the officer and his partner were driving on 23rd Street in response to a vandalism call when protesters threw a mattress underneath their patrol car.

Here is the Indy Media version of events:

Tonight in San Francisco, anti-G8 protesters attacked a police officer who was violently coming after them with a nightstick.

Ah, yes, the old “he was violently coming after me” defense.

More from Indy Media:

Here’s the story: the cop was driving in his cruiser after a group of splinter protesters who were shooting off fireworks, putting barricades in the street and breaking windows. He then ran over one of the large styrofoam banners people were carrying. Somehow, this affected the forward movement of his car as the wheels spun. Then, some kind of projectile (maybe a firework) shot at his windshield. Infuriated, the cop leaped out of the car and started swinging. Unfortunately for him, this aggression was a bad move and he was physically beaten.

Also, read down to the comments. MOST of the comments are justifying this nonsense and blaming the officer.

WARNING: Graphic (bloody) image of beaten police officer beyond the click.
