Calm descended on troubled communities from San Francisco to Las Vegas on Saturday as curfews and heavy police patrols deterred protesters from returning to the streets. Over the objections of San Francisco Mayor Frank Jordan, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted overwhelmingly Saturday to rescind an emergency declaration that had allowed police to arrest demonstrators simply for refusing to disperse. A dusk-to-dawn curfew was ended.

Police used tear gas and foam pellets early Sunday to battle a crowd that gathered after suspected gang members beat a passerby in an apparently racially triggered assault, police said. A white motorist who drove near a picnic breaking up in the northwest part of the city was attacked by blacks who appeared to target the man because he is white, said Sgt. Mike Daily. The man was treated for minor injuries, Dailey said.
