SFPD Police cracking-down and arresting many peaceful revelers during the Bay to Breakers footrace festival.­ It did not appear that the people they arrested were drunk or causing any trouble.­ They got arrested just because they were partying in the street.­ Police apparently had orders to crack-down on all festivities on city streets at the 2011 Bay to Breakers race.­

SFPD Police did not arrest people that were partying on Park land (Pan handle and Golden Gate Park).­ I suppose that the rules for arresting people on Park property are a bit different.­
