    Apparently TSA & VIPR have a hand in "opBART" ...

    KALW 91.7: Justice Department, Homeland Security personnel at OpBART protests

    Not sure where I am politically on the BART protests, but I'm pretty sure its not terrorism. Yet, here are our old friends VIPR and TSA. What's next, groping grannies on the platform? BTW, that's not a joke. I literally expect that they will try to institute such a regime.

    I expect it, too. Organizations like the TSA never voluntarily downsize. Nor do people who work for such agencies ever admit that the basic premise behind their agency is flawed, despite being in conflict with the very way of life they claim to be "protecting" by destroying it.

    BRAVO, MIKE!!!! I am so sick of the "Don't inconvenience me" argument. The entire frigging civil rights movement was "inconvenient." Tough (expletive deleted).

    An entire thread -- and no one has noticed the similarities between BART and Bart . . . ?! :eek:

    Bravo to the both of you!

    I really hate the 'inconvenience' argument too. Thanks for saying it out loud.

    Making it up as you go along is something TSA and BART Police have in common, it seems. An editorial blog asks the obvious question: why not apologize, do the right thing, and move on?
    Instead, escalation:http://www.sfbg.com/bruce/2011/09/13/editorial-bart-and-sfpd-cops-go-after-press
    :td:I wish this was a test.
