Last Year, SFPD Cops in the Mission District ENABLED Skateboard Bombing at Dolores Park – This Year NOT – Why is That?

2016aaa

Instead of shutting it down, the police actually blocked off motorized vehicular traffic for an hour or so. They even moved their blockade from 20th street to 21st, allowing everyone to smash down the hill from the top. With all of the recent chaos in the world going on, this was a nice change of interaction between the public and the police.”
