While some rangers have cracked down in the past, including this rather brutal takedown from February, Dolores Park, for the most part, exists as sort of landlocked international waters.
It's a lawless zone for all sorts of activities — mostly pot smoking and acroyoga — but perhaps not for long?
Yes, there's a new, very small cop on the Dolores beat. Fortunately, he looks like something of a rookie, and his squad car isn't too intimidating. What's more, he seemed to be off-duty: While the devil's weed wafted in the air, the young officer was administering high fives rather than citations.
Next week in the park, we fully expect to see a tiny Tesla, which Radio Flyer now manufactures with approval from the electric car company.
