In April 2008 when the Olympic torch passed through San Francisco, the city exploded in protests. Starting at Giant stadium, to be carried through the city, a decoy bus was dispatched to distract the protesters from the real happenings down the street. Quickly people were eager to throw themselves down in front of the bus to stop it. Though the bus kept inching forward the people did not budge. It appeared that someone went under the bus. An ambulance arrived later, all the while the real torch was being run down Van Ness Ave.
