Not so bad, you might think; BART over-reacting to a few kids jumping the fare gates.
Not so fast. Not only were there hundreds of these people jumping the gates, they held up trains by holding the doors open.
Oh, I see. These “other people”, who were not participating in your protest, were being selfish for being upset. They may not be immigrants or in any way connected with or benefited by your protest, but you’re “doing it for them.”
Give me a farking break. You come in from out of town, screw with our mass transit system, inconvenience untold numbers of innocent bystanders, and then get pissy because they don’t approve of your tactics?
In the scheme of things this is probably pretty small potatoes. But I couldn’t let this level of cluelessness pass without comment.
Feel free to share your feelings if you were one of those who couldn’t get where they needed to go today because of this benign act of civil disobedience.
