The Market Street Police Riot:
Step by Step

Who ordered this?

Who ordered police to set a roadblock in the middle of Market Street, San Francisco's main thoroughfare?

Who ordered the police at Market near Powell to assault photographers, pedestrians, and cyclists?

If these actions were not directly ordered, who was the officer in charge who tolerated them?

What does the Chief of Police, Fred Lau, a Brown appointee, plan to do to insure that a disgraceful event like this does not occur again and the officers responsible, regardless of rank or political connections, are disciplined?

Why does the mayor of San Francisco tolerate police officers who do violence to citizens and visitors to San Francisco and why does he continue to verbally bash cyclists?
