San Francisco Riots: Live Blogging Photos From The Chaos

The San Francisco Riots are back, and once again they were caused because the San Francisco Giants won the World Series. Remember 2010? Apparently fans forgot exactly how much damage they caused just a few short years ago.

The Giants easily won this years World Series with a sweep over the Detroit Tigers, and a celebration that started with a calm crowd has quickly turned into a full on riot. Police officers are being hit with bottles and rocks, and crowds are threatening to catch power lines and buildings on fire.

Fans are said to be drunk, rowdy, and showing no respect to law enforcement.

In one report, revelers were witnessed shooting bottle rockets out of their car as they drove through the crowded streets. In another report, a small child was injured and required medical attention near a Popeye’s Chicken fast food restaurant.

Police have attempted to monitor the crowd, but wagons have recently been called in to pick up the worst offenders.

22nd and Michigan appears to be one of the biggest hot spots among drunken fans.

Since images often speak louder than words, we have begun to compile various photos from the riots. Some photos show pure joyful celebration while others show exactly how stupid riots can act when given the chance.

Fans are casually standing around fires, smoking cigarettes, and drinking beers they probably don’t need at this point:
