Video: Wait, Riots Can Incite Violence? Car Plows Through Group Of ‘Fiery’ Giants Fans

As alluded to below, the video is really something: parental discretion is advised.

From vlogger cwk415:

*Caution. Not for the faint of heart, contains graphic content*

This unedited video was shot at 21st and Mission Streets in San Francisco after the Giants won the World Series. (10-01-2010)

At about 11:49pm I started filming this “celebration” bon-fire (And other random acts of civil disobedience) in the middle of the intersection when (at the 2:05 mark) suddenly I heard screaming and the sound of people’s bodies being hit by metal as the engine of a car roars. I turned around just in time to see headlights and a fender speeding right towards me, I moved quickly then watched in horror as it drove straight through the crowd of people striking many of them and dragging some right through the fire itself! At least two were taken to the hospital that I’m aware of, I just barely missed being hit myself. Then before the car even stops, the crowd goes completely ape shit on it and the driver, smashing them up until a wave of cops storm down Mission St. and shut down the entire intersection.

Let’s go Giants…?

Wow. That’s just…um, not good. All I would say is that the insane person who was operating this motor vehicle should not be allowed to drive one of the floats during the Giants’ World Series victory parade on Wednesday. Sheesh.
