KTVU-TV reports a public transit bus was set on fire, a vehicle was flipped over, and the windows of several businesses and vehicles were broken as fans took to the streets following the Giants win Sunday night.
Fans also lit bonfires, fueling them with couches, signs and newspaper racks. Firefighters had to be escorted in by riot police to fight some of the fires.
My Father, His Firebombs and Me In this five-part series, veteran National Post reporter Peter Kuitenbrouwer digs into his remarkable childhood and the life of his father, whose Bob Dylan hairstyle and On the Road lifestyle embodied the drug-fuelled freedom dance of the ‘60s. He travelled along the California coast, where his father built a hippie commune in the redwoods and became a wanted man after plotting to blow up a lumber company’s model home. This is the story of a generation which is just now coming to terms with the dark side of their peace-and-love upbringing.
San Francisco could ban circumcision Circumcise a child in San Francisco and you could face a year in jail, under a proposed San Francisco bylaw that will be put to voters in November.
The measure was introduced on municipal ballots this week after San Francisco resident Lloyd Schofield submitted it along with a petition with more than 12,000 signatures.
Mr. Schofield said: “We came at this from the angle of not having a human being strapped down and having their genitals mutilated.”
“If you tried to circumcise a dog, you’d be arrested, and if you tried to circumcise a girl in America since 1996, you’d be arrested, why is it that we’re not protecting our boys?” said Marilyn Milos, an anti-circumcision campaigner based in San Francisco. (Photo: Getty Images/Thinkstock)
