Because Tea Partyers always carry shivs to their demonstrations and use them to cut cops:
One San Francisco police officer was slashed by a razor and another had his uniform torn and cheek cut in a clash with Occupy San Francisco protesters Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
About 3:30 p.m., near the Embarcadero and Broadway, police attempted to prevent marching demonstrators from blocking the intersection where MUNI light rail tracks are located.
A female protester emerged from the crowd and an “exacto razor blade attached to a pen or pencil-like object,” San Francisco police said in an email.
“The female slashed the inside of the officer’s hand and ran back into the crowd before the officer had time to realize he was cut,” police said.
Peaceful, tolerant, and sensitive. True American patriots, fighting for the rest of us.
PS: Dear Ed Lee, as the newly elected mayor of San Francisco, may I suggest your first move should be to clear out the Vandals? I mean, razor blade-wielding anarcho-socialists can’t be good for the tourism your city so depends on. Just a thought.
