scary...very scary

Its Halloween, and the traditional parties and parades are happening all across the country--as little kids and adults dress up to trick or treat, or to parade and party in public .

Except in San Francisco's Castro--the west coast ground zero for gays, lesbians and queers of all types. The reason is very scary. Fear of violence made the City of SF cancel the annual Halloween Party-- last year 10 people were injured when insults led to gunfire according to last year's NYT http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/02/us/02fight.html?_r=1&n=Top/Reference/Times%20Topics/Subjects/H/Halloween&oref=slogin

So, instead of protecting the revelers from the miscreants (and penalizing those who are violent) the city tells everyone to party indoors or elsewhere (NYT 10/30/07).

What is wrong with this picture? Why is gay culture being disappeared? Would this happen to a St. Patrick's Day event?
