Just for the record, the violent Black Bloc anarchist group that trashed the Mission on May Day is the same tendency that fractured city cop Peter Shields's skull in the demo taped by city leftist pseudo-martyr Josh Wolf. Wolf was jailed for refusing to turn over his tape to the Federal Grand Jury. Wolf was embraced by SF's prog establishment, including Ross Mirkarimi and District Attorney Kamala Harris.
Not surprising to learn that the Black Bloc folks are white punks dressed in black:
As co-managers of the Berkeley Surplus store on San Pablo Avenue, Mitchell Langon and Michael Ludlow have sold a lot of gas masks, dark bandannas and black hoodie sweatshirts to protesters since Occupy began in the fall. "I've had a bunch of rich white kids come in here looking for the black stuff---you know the type, the Marin County trust-fund types," said Langon, whose store sports a sign reading, "For all your riot needs."
