Add comment on:SF Cop with Baton to People Watching Arrest: "Back Up Now; Everybody back up."
After SF Pride, someone was being apprehended by San Fransisco police outside Westfield mall. The manner in which the arrest occurred drew attention, and as such a crowd gathered to witness. Rather than explain the situation to the people watching, the police intimidated the crowd back, with an officer pulling out his baton to threaten people into clearing the sidewalk. Rather than communicate with the public in a civil manner, the police showed aggression to people who were merely witnessing an arrest.
