You can’t smoke at the beach, but it is okay to get drunk and start a riot. Courtesy of the UT today: “A melee broke out on the beach yesterday afternoon as people started throwing plastic bottles and cans at police officers who were called to break up a large fight.” Here is my favorite part, “Councilman Kevin Faulconer came to the beach and, after speaking with police officials, said he will re-examine the city's policy governing alcohol consumption at the beach, including restricting it or possibly banning it.”
Too bad, Councilman Faulconer didn’t show any real leadership earlier this year with his Beach Alcohol Task Force. Maybe, yesterday’s unfortunate events could have been avoided had some leadership been demonstrated. Councilman the voters elected you to lead! Not just to show up for photo ops and quotes in the UT after the police had to quell a riot.
