OMG - that’s hilarious.
I’m sure these teens are mad about Trump or something.
I bet their dads will be angry when they find out it
How is this not the biggest story in the country right now?
Wait - these are “teens????”
Other reports said described them as “juveniles.”
Oh - what am I to make from such descriptions????
50 to 60 kids. None of them have spilled the beans. No cell phone videos, no Facebook posts about the incident...right.
Why didn’t the good guys just shoot the bad guys?
Oh, wait... nevermind.
They've got to find the Dads first.
Massive DNA testing required.
Good for Uber, who wants to ride BART now?
Sanctuary city problem?
Now California needs to build high speed rail so the “teens” can rob people at faster speeds.
Was this co-ordinated through Obama phones?
Are there “resistance connected” leaders or is it just a local gang phenomenon?
Inquiring minds want to know.
The Oakland stations have always been dicey.
Yup. He turned off their Obamaphones. Seriously, transit cops need to start cracking skulls.
Oakland station? I’m shocked.
I grew up in the shadow of the Walnut Creek station. I can count on one hand with fingers left over the number of times I felt inclined to take the BART into Oakland.
Impressive! Good ol’ fashioned train robbery making a comeback in the urban jungle!
