BART officials under fire for withholding crime surveillance videos to avoid racial stereotypes

 11 July 11, 2017
(extract from a longer article)
Officials from BART, the public metro system serving California's San Francisco Bay area, have come under fire for their refusal to release crime surveillance videos, claiming such tapes will promote stereotypes and "stir up racial animosity."

A BART official defended the agency's decision on Monday by saying information about criminal misconduct will be withheld at this time because of the media's "disproportionate elevation" of crimes that "unfairly affect and characterize riders of color," the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The decision, however, has been roundly criticized by at last two BART board members who are calling for greater transparency on how crimes are reported within the system.

Since the cameras were installed in April, a string of cell phone robberies have been reported on board the metro, according to local news outlets.

 On April 22, 40 to 60 youths boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, assaulting two, according to local station KCBS-TV. On June 28, a group of four teens assaulted a passenger and made off with another cell phone.

Until early June, the agency was issuing daily reports on police calls at BART, providing a narrative description of the report and the department’s response to anyone who signed up to receive those emails, The Mercury News reported.

 But that procedure changed when BART Police Chief Carlos Rojas assumed control of the department in late May, according to the newspaper.


 BART board director Deborah Allen is pressing the agency to release more about the crimes to the public -- including videos of the recent robberies, telling The Mercury News: "People need to be aware of what’s happening on the trains."

We mustn't confuse people with the facts, eh Chief Rojas?

Some thoughts from a friend:



Obama used the Marines as servants or ignored them.  When the wind blew off a Marine's cover, President Trump got it for him.  President Trump is a someone I can respect. Makes for a nice change.













Wire Note:



My family is finally coming in tonight, after many  trials and travails. I may be a bit sporadic with posts for the next two weeks , since we have a lot of things we want to do while they are here.

Thought for the Day:





I don't think those guys robbing passengers on the trains in San Francisco have gotten the word yet:

"Dat ain' de way I do it."

  1. California has become a total Marxist state....Commies, the whole legislature and Governor and most of the mayors. Northern part of the state on the east side is still pretty much sane. Gov Moonbeam is a Jesuit, just like the Pope. Nuf said. Have fun with your family, Harry. I know you have been looking forward to seeing them for a long time.

    1. I feel for the people in Northern California. That's where my parents moved when I was a kid and I lived there , up around Newcastle, for a good many years. Went to High School there.
      It was a beautiful place, with good people. There were white people, Japanese Americans, and when the fruit was in there were itinerant "braceros" farm workers. Everybody got along fine. Southern California has always been a different place. But now Sacramento is so full of moonbats the whole state is screwed. That's why my mom, my sister, and both my brothers moved out of California, although Oregon would not have been my choice of a place to go (unless it was your part of Oregon). My brothers both went to OSU and they liked Corvallis.

      M and the kids got in last night at 3:a.m. We are still getting situated but it's good to have her home, and my daughter seems to be feeling well. I think it will be a good couple of weeks.

    2. I remember Newcastle. The old highway went thru there and we used to go thru on our way to Auburn, years ago. It was a neat farming community. Now you have to go further north and east to find conservatives, like Modoc county.

    3. Tewshooz, that old highway was the road I lived on. If you remember the old "flume" water canal overpass, that carried the water over the road, and had all the swallows nests, if you had looked up to the right on the hill top you would have seen our house. Going to Auburn, it was just before the road turned at the farmers Grange hall (that was where we went to church) and Scott's Corner grocery store.

      It was all fruit orchards and pastures, then. Now it's all rich peoples "mini estates."

    4. Yes, Harry, I remember the 'flume'. Hadn't thought of that in years. Just down the road was the little town of Lincoln. Those were the good old days, eh? That was old hiway 40, wasn't it? There was a plumbing/hardware store where we bought a submersible pump for our well.

      Delete
    5. We used to go to Lincoln to buy firewood. I remember it as having lots of those hills with the yellow wheat looking straw and lots of star thistles. It's changed a lot though, I haven't been there since 2005. And then it was almost unrecognizable.

  2. Remember Bernhard Goetz? I do, vividly. What a mess law enforcement created for him just for shooting some sub-humans.

    1. I do, I remember him. "You look like you're ok, here, have another!" bang! Kind of a real life Charles Bronson. The media tried to make him out as a sicko, but he was a normal man who had been pushed too far by the goblins. I think they should put him on the $20.00 and not the psychopathic bush ranger, Harriet Tubman.

    2. first report said he shot thieves. second report and all others after said they were 'young men who earned their living breaking open parking meters'.
      'earned'?
      that's why they had screwdrivers to threaten people with.

    3. A Goblin by any other name would smell as bad. He did a public service and got sent to jail for it. That was one fellow who had just had enough.

  3. I hope you have fun with the family. Take care.

    1. Kathy, it was a long drive for them. Terrible weather up North, big wrecks on the freeway. But they got here ok. Everybody is still asleep at 10:30 this morning they were worn out.

      My kids brought me a pendulum wall clock with Robert E. Lee on the front of it. I have collected pendulum clocks from all over the world, and that will make a great addition to my trove.

  4. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    The only positive thing about a complete collapse of our financial system or whatever evil befalls out society is 'Natural Selection' will be back in 'Vogue' and the ghetto rats eat each other as well as some citizens may take matters into their own hands like the guy back New York in 1986 I think it was that shot six ghetto rats and injured a few rats on a subway when they attempted to rob him.

    1. You'e thinking of Bernhard Goetz, who in my opinion was a heroic figure. If there were a collapse, and law and order vanished, there would be a lot of payback. Most decent citizens don't hold back on whacking the Goblins because of any moral scruples, but became they don't want to become the next George Zimmerman. Take away the coercive nature of the laws, which don't phase Morlocks but hamstring good people, and the outcome of many an encounter between the two would be radically different. I'd have stacked those four scumbags in Chattanooga up like cord wood, if it hadn't been for the dead certainly of going to jail for the rest of my life.

  5. Well first off, I have no intentions on going to San Francisco so I don't have to worry. Love the New Orleans picture, guess the truth hurts the left. Yes, that ED picture sure does a number on my testosterone. Trump earned some more points with me with what he did, glad we have a president that cares about the military.

    1. I wouldn't go to San Francisco on a bet. They can have their multicultural hell hole.

      The Mayor of New Orleans is a pathetic individual who tries to curry favor with black voters no matter what it takes. He may find out this latest antic of his backfires on him come next election.

      Wonder why it is that conservative women tend to be pretty and feminine, and the liberals tend to be hoydens? Must be a reason....

      I'm a big fan of President Trump. He's a non-politician trying to do political work in a nest of vipers. And he could have just gone on living the good life, doing anything he wanted, having anything he wanted.

  6. Enjoy time with your family, Harry.

    Our house gets listed Thursday afternoon, and the first open house is Saturday.

    We might very well be outta Kommiefornia by the third week in August!

  7. Harry,

    I love the countryside of California.....I will never live there though. There's just too much crap going on there, to many expressive people, and expensive.

    Enjoy your time with family :-)
    Hugs to y'all. Enjoy Rufus!!

    1. Sandy, Rufus already managed to fall off the porch, I can see he is going to be high maintenance, but I like the little guy.

      Everything is going well with the visit.

      I wouldn't want to live out in California again . It's too far gone.

  8. Yes, enjoy the time with your family! Our country is falling apart all around us and in the end, and no one seems to even know what "truth" is anymore. Friends and family are the things we can hold on to.

    1. That's true, Leigh. I'm enjoying the visit although the kids have such different schedules that it's turning everything upside down here. They stay up very late, and sleep very late. I go to bed early, and get up before dawn.
