Hell's Angel's - Market Street
















I was in the pet store at Duboce and Market buying Democrat and Republican dog cookies when I saw helicopters up above . My first thought was to look for smoke thinking there was a building on fire, then I thought it was the kids marching from Mission High to City Hall again, when I heard this "roar" and then a limousine went by with a massive line of motorcycles for the funeral of Hells Angel Mark Guardado.
