This is the third consecutive Monday that activists plan to rally against BART . . .

How long are real working people going to put up with this crap when they just want to go home?

If these anarchists don’t quit, the real working class might strike back.

But then, both sides would play right into the government’s hands, wouldn’t they?

They whine about oppression and then oppress thousands of innocent hard working Americans that just want to go home!

If one truly does not believe in law and order, why should one benefit from it?

I know two wrongs don’t make a right. But it irritates me to see these punks violating everyone else’s rights while they whine that theirs are being violated.

I always wondered what happens to people after they’ve been arrested at some kind of riot/protest.

How do they explain missed time at work? If someone at the job finds out they’ve been arrested, how do they explain it?

Of course, people who do this probably don’t work.

They’re probably funded by Soros.

That’s the thought I had today. The riders should group together and mass-citizens arrest all the protestors and deliver them to the police.

It’s kind of getting to the point where everything we would like to have happen within our society, we have to do it ourselves. Some would call it self-reliance.

These flash mobs don’t simply want to mob, they want to create consternation and chaos. Comes awful close to terrorism in my book. At the very least, it is a racket a la RICO. Book em Dano. Some serious felony convictions and the Irish courage will go out of these flash mobs.

Oh and I have no beef with the Irish. It’s a colloquialism for false courage, as if by liquor.

We need to have an investigator start following some of these people home.

I think we are seeing the same people over and over, paid for by Soros and others- driven by bus to states where protests are needed.

I can never ‘protest’ any libtard encroachment onto my rights because I HAVE TO GO TO WORK.

They got to know what they’re doing. Flash mobbing used to be a harmless, cute (if startling) stunt. Now it has become a public nuisance.

I would hardly blame BART if it sent a squad to meet flash mobbers, all wearing T shirts saying “I hope I remember which one is the Taser” (an allusion to the alleged Mehserle blunder).

I have long thought that the real purpose of public transportation is to lay the ground work for trust of and the reliance upon the government. If no man knows the freedom of movement without government monitoring or permission, there wont be a need to demand “papers”. It will all be tracked through the buses, trams, trains and planes.

Just run the trains at 70 MPH through any protestors...works well.

Personal note: Long ago when BART was having problems with on time performance, they proposed running less trains which would increase performance...so, I wrote a letter to editor saying they would have a perfect system when they ran no trains. It was published as a featured letter.
