by Z
Saturday Oct 26th, 2002 8:06 PM
Around 2:30 several hundred demonstrators gatherd near Polk and Grove to stage a march for more radical action to stop the war in Iraq. The march circled the corwd gaining several thousand people and then moved down Market St towards a military recruiting center near Embarcadero Plaza. The march then circled onto the Embarcadero and stopped back in front of the Recuiting Center where an open mike allowed many people to speak.

He seemed irritated that there wasnt any violence and was yelling at his boss on his cellphone that there WAS good reason for him to stay since he was sure SOMETHING would happen
§Board Police

The cops expected something too and practiced military formation drills while people in front of the recruitment center talked on the mike.
§Bored Police

But, the reality of the situation was that the protest just stayed in front of the Recuitment center and people talked. The cops got bored, and some even looked like they were starting to fall asleep.

The police brought in pretty expensive looking riot gear but strangely they didnt have it during most of the breakaway march. Its hard to know what they expected and why the felt like they might have had the need to resort to the use of such force.
