Riding BART? Watch out for the wild pack of gorillas!

Bart is a failed social experiment. From the $170k janitors to the station agents sleeping in the booths the entire system needs an overhaul. Since measure RR passed Bart has been crying about budget deficits, lack of ability to maintain and service the system and provide adequate security. Now with incidents like this when riding Bart you'll always be hoping you get to work on time and in one piece.

"According to a police summary, witnesses said 50 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders."

This is not a crime.

A crime requires illegality + power.

So these were just youths redistributing wealth in a creative manner.

Juveniles can be dangerous. It is time to treat all of them as adult offenders.

Can we fine their parents for not using a condom?

When criminals act like animals, it is inhumane to treat them as people.

The Bay Area is the perfect platform to pull off such a maneuver.

You wouldn't want to try this anywhere else, I assure you.

What shall we do with Republican adults that allowed 9/11 & lied & killed American servicemen

Interesting factoid:

When Bernhard Goetz shot four robbers on a NY City subway in Manhattan on December 22, 1984, crime on the subways (which were prolific and a daily occurrence), dropped to nearly zero from the time of the shooting until Bernhard Goetz was identified and arrested nine days later.

Just wait until the whole state becomes a sanctuary. I can see roving packs of thugs roaming the streets and attacking at will considering they'll only be put in time out as punishment.

When I heard about the BART thuggery, my mind immediately transitioned to the Goetz case of 1984.
