We here at SFist have no interest in writing yet another Stupidest SF Giants Celebration 'Incidents' post if the Giants win the World Series, so we were pleased to see that the San Francisco Police Department will be continuing the all-hands-on-deck plan they had for last week's pennant game.
But canceling vacation days isn't the only thing SFPD will be doing next week, according to KTVU. They'll also be working to call off one event, removing typical targets of vandalism, and busting boozers.
No trash cans for you: SFPD will be picking up trash cans before any final games, so people like those above can't use them to start bonfires. As has been done during past victory celebrations. Guess you'll be packing your trash out!
Civic Center viewing party might not happen: "I haven't heard that we're going to repeat [the viewing party we had in 2012] this time," Deputy Police Chief Lyn Tamioka told KTVU. In 2012 the party "became a starting point for thousands of people to start roaming." So, no party, fewer roaming packs of fans, smashing the hell out of Muni.
Speaking of Muni: Buses will be rerouted so they aren't going through packs of revelers/rioters, and the electrified buses will be taken offline "so they're not easy targets." Also, when I fantasize about smashing a bus it's usually one of those creaky electric ones, and I'm not even a drunk dude.
Cops on two wheels: Even more SFPD officers, all of whom will be working game nights, will be on motorcycles and dirt bikes, so they can easily maneuver through crowds and get to where the shenanigans are.
Boozy busts: Cops will be out early to bust people who seem drunk before they can get into any trouble.
Donnie Brascoing it: SFPD officers will be going undercover in and outside the game, infiltrating crowds and stepping in to cut off "confrontational behavior" before it turns into a brawl.
Learn from Gregory "Muni basher" Graniss' fate, you guys! Stay out of trouble. The last thing we want to have to do is write about your dumb, humiliating arrest.
