San Francisco police are puzzled by the mysterious appearance of dozens of spiked baseball bats all across the city for the third day in a row. Treating it as a “strange occurrence,” authorities have asked for public help in shedding light on the phenomenon.
Wooden or metal baseball bats first graced the streets early Thanksgiving morning, chained to parking meters or poles. The number of improvised and potentially deadly weapons found in the city continues to grow.




“There were bolts in this thing. They had drill holes in it. They knew what they were doing. Whoever did this put it together, this was not put together in an hour,” Burke said.




RT - article

What in the world? Total # according to the article is 27 spiked bats.

Was there some sort of planned civil disobedience that didn't come to fruition?

Is it just some weirdo trying to make headlines?

This gave me a chill, so thought I would share and see what you guys thought.

Creepy, nonetheless!

It looks artistic in a way. Besides there is a big difference between aluminum nails and a studded bat drilled with nuts n bolts. In my opinion its for sure some kind of statement.

It has a feel of the purge to it.

Man, the artist better run-



The bats are being taken in by police as evidence. SFPD is now asking the public to shed light on what they called a “strange occurrence.”

According to San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak, the spikes on the bats allow them to be considered a prohibited or deadly weapon, which is a felony.


But yes, artist or some sort of social experiment... maybe sick and twisted one...jeeze!

I'd guess, with all the cameras pointing at American streets, that the police there already know who did this, probably have already interviewed them.

But probably just someone trying to fuel the fear fire.

It seems completely pointless so it can really only be someone's idea of 'art'. Plus, San Francisco is pretty much the weirdo capital of the United States.

That looks like it'll have a good swing weight to it. I likey.

I'm thinking, looking at the differences, that this is a multiple person statement. The beginnings of an anti-padlocks on bridges, counter movement??? Though I am not sure what that statement is...unless San Francisco has a particularly large Tank Girl wannabe following...

Looks like someone is trying to start an event similar to the movie the Purge.

A car chase?

Whenever I think of San Francisco, I think car chases.
