SAN FRANCISCO (Tue, May 01) – First of May, a day that is anticipated to be full of anti-establishment demonstrations all around the world started premature last night with a nomadic gang of "anarchists" destroying car windows and store fronts in San Francisco's Mission District.
The pre-May Day riots may have started as a "ruckus street party" organized by Occupy Oakland protesters who raided their neighboring city last night, but whoever was responsible appeared to show little regard for the property of either the 1% or the other 99%.
Various witness accounts say a group of between 50 and 100 people moved down Valencia Street and destroyed a police station by smashing windows and splashing it with paint, Monday night. Police in riot gear were placed on alert outside the station following the attack. One car was set on fire.
