SAN FRANCISCO --
Vandals damaged vending machines at BART's Glen Park Station in San Francisco on Thursday night, hours after at least two dozen people were arrested during a protest at the Powell Street Station.
About eight to 12 men dressed in black hoodies came into the Glen Park Station and used hammers to smash fare gates, eight Clipper Card readers and ticket vending machines at about 10 p.m.,

They’re mad because the police shot some guy who was throwing a knife at a policeman? Damnit! The circus comes to San Francisco and the police start shooting the performers. It was just THE AMAZING KNIFO demonstrating his skills. You have to cut the police some slack, it’s hard to tell the citizens from the circus in San Francisco.
And this is not Pelosi’s fault? These are her voters. Maybe they were after Tea Party racists who actually pay their own fares.
I’m sure they would be the first to mourn the loss of a police officer if they didn’t defend them selves form a knife or gun wielding attacker. /sarc
They were the islamic communist puppet’s union communist workers of the world. Cause fear and make them spend any money fixing if they have any money left, so that there are more and easier to bribe dingbats when there’s not much or any money left.
This is what it's going to come to, soon, in this country, as the parastitic and goons will invade suburbia to try to take what they have a "Right" to.....lock 'n load.
My wife and I flew to Oakland once for a day trip to visit San Francisco. From the airport we were bussed to a Bart terminal where we tried to pay to get on a train. The area was trashed beyond belief and the people gave me the creeps. I was consciously thinking it was out of one of those post apocolypse movies. “I am Legend”, but dustier, comes to mind now.
Anyway, we were so thoroughly disgusted that we got on the next bus to the airport and flew back home. I will never, ever go to California again.
As long as they keep their anarchy in the heavy liberal districts, I'm fine with it. The left needs to see, and experience, what it has sown.
The liberals are going to have to learn the hard way, because they're too blind to listen to anyone else.
two words come to mind, first starts with an a, second with an h.
charge ‘em as felonies, toss the book at the bums.
If you can't afford a solid car to get around in you take your life in your hands on any public "transportation" in this city, and don't expect any help from the cops, they're only interested in you for revenue.
On the bright side, San Franciscans deserve the city they live in, they spared no (government) expense to make it what it is.
That is such a shame.
I grew up in a beautiful state; when I was a kid, I swore I would never leave it. But now, things are so different. I went back to visit family last summer; the whole state had a run-down look to it. From the dead orchards and dried up fields in the Central Valley, to the buildings that have not been renovated since I was a kid (in the 60s!), I just don't see much of the original state left.
The worst part, for me, is that the liberals whose policies have trashed the state will never figure out what has gone wrong; they genuinely believe that the worse things get, the more leftist their policies need to be. It makes me lose hope that CA will ever improve.
—the whole state had a run-down look to it. —
That’s it, right there. I was using the Bart example, and it was the worst, but we see most of california as traffic, asphalt, concrete and graffiti. Carlsbad is kinda nice but, oh well...
Oh, and $400+ traffic camera tickets. But no, I’ve never actually gotten one. And now I never will. 8->
I think it will improve eventually. In the same way that Hiroshima is better now than it was in 1945. But California has not reached its own “1945” yet. It still has a ways to go. And go, it will.
The govt of San Francisco is not serious about keeping the peace the train station was still open & NO reports of copious amounts of pepper spray & wood shampoo’s all around.
simply state that till further notice service will be stopped at that station seal it off no more train stops there when the hippies & black block turds whine state that they busted stuff up so they obviously don’t need to ride from their anymore.
