On October 28, 2012, the San Francisco Giants won the 4th game of the World Series in Detroit to sweep the Detroit Tigers. Despite being thousands of miles away from the game, San Francisco erupted in a surprisingly violent celebration. Buildings were vandalized, trashcans set ablaze, buses attacked, and streets closed by thousands of revelers.
 Most of the action was concentrated in the SoMa and Mission districts. At first, the Mission action was largely centered around people jumping street fires, but later in the night the SFPD arrived at 16th and Mission, and after a tense standoff was able to clear the streets. 
 Sadly, the aftermath of all this destructive celebration was left squarely on the shoulders of the city's Department of Public Works employees, who had to scrape the burned and melted trashcans off the roadway before the next morning.
