FROM THIS EPISODE

Protesters failed to stop the Olympic Torch relay this afternoon, because there was none - at least not the one that drew thousands of people into the streets of San Francisco. Fear of violence drove officials to change the route, bypassing both protesters and spectators who wanted to celebrate the Olympic Games.
Main Topic Torch Plays Hide and Seek with Protesters in San Francisco 24 MIN, 25 SEC
After what happened in London and Paris, San Francisco was ready today when the Olympic Torch was threatened by violent protest. They changed the route, so protesters didn’t know where the Torch was, but neither did thousands of spectators who’d come out to celebrate the Olympic Games.
