BART Swarm Invasion Shows Mandated Helplessness Invites Attacks

Based on the way they vote, that’s the way most riders want it.

‘[D]ozens of juveniles terrorized riders Saturday night when they invaded the Coliseum Station and commandeered at least one train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries,” the San Francisco Chronicle bemoans. “Witnesses told police that 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders.”

Want to know if these smiling folks are Oath Keepers? Let them know you’re keeping and bearing arms because it’s your right and see what they have to say about that. (BART/Facebook)

The passengers weren’t in much of a position to do anything but be victimized, thanks in no small part to the Bay Area Rapid Transit’s “no guns” policies, combined with the utter refusal of regional “Only Ones” to approve “may issue” (meaning “probably won’t unless you’re connected) concealed carry permits. That’s all enabled by the overwhelmingly dominant “progressive” mindset of a constituency that demands defenselessness for citizens and “sanctuary” for everyone else.

In this case, the assailants were referenced with euphemisms like “juveniles” and “teenagers,” lest the “reporters” commit the cardinal sin of admitting the truth about the inevitable result of “progressive entitlement” policies. That a real entitlement articulated in the Second Amendment is denied while phony ones designed to keep collectivists in power nurture destroyers is undeniable – except for those with an agenda to smear truth-tellers as haters.

At least we know some are protected, even though oath-breaking “government” officials and enforcers have no duty to protect productive citizens and forbid them from having the means to protect themselves.  Think of this mandate as “for the children,” a favorite gun-grabber sound bite:

“We are in the process of pulling all surveillance video, and we will share with Oakland police, Oakland Unified School District and Oakland Housing Authority to see if they can help identify the minors,” Trost said. “We have had success with sharing images of juveniles with this group and identifying and making arrests in the past.” The images cannot be shared publicly, she said, because the attackers appear to be minors.

Why the hell not? Why is the public not “allowed” to know who the public menaces are, so that if they’re not allowed to fight they can at least flee?

Now that they know they can get away with it, and that’s pretty much already been confirmed by social media-organized flash mobs (by “teenagers,” or as anti-gun SEPTA Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III characterizes it, “kids … hurting kids. Love them by making them come home”).

Gee, Officer Krupke

All that’s left to those unfortunate enough to have to use public transit is to be prey. If you choose personal safety in defiance of “the law,” you’ll be a “vigilante” and a “criminal” (like Bernhard Goetz). The same will apply if you have one of those impossible-to-get (unless you’re connected like anti-gun Sean Penn) permits, chances are the survivors of your assailants – and the media – will paint them as the victims who were just starting to turn their lives around.

Those are the risks those choosing to remain in such environs will continue to take, and based on their voting patterns, the dangers are self-inflicted.

So just don’t go there? Let ‘em stew in their own juices? Problem solved?

How many live in “flyover” areas where “refugees” leaving fouled urban nests have moved, bringing the same insane “progressive” politics with them? And does anyone think the gun-grabbers are going to stop blaming relatively freer areas for urban self-destruction, inventing scare terms like “iron pipeline,” and imposing disarmament edicts everywhere, in Everytown…?

    Remember the movie “Death Wish” with Charles Bronson?

    This is merely another instance of the chaos encouraged by globalists in order to force We the People to ‘demand ‘ they take steps, unconstitutional steps, to control the mayhem they brought on us. Wake up, folks. This is not an isolated case of black mob violence. Oops, I said a bad thing…..

    juveniles know their identity is protected by ‘law’. That’s what’s behind their wild unrestricted relentless behavior in breaking laws and harming people. In my book, if a teenager decides to break the law, he/she gives up their identity protection and must be made known to all as a law breaker risk to life, health and property. NO MORE KID GLOVES!

    The entire State of California has gone over the edge. Stories like this make me glad I got the heck out 35 years ago, and I sure won’t be going back in the future, except maybe to the State of Jefferson if it comes into being.

    Identity be damned !
    If you are over the age of eight then you are able to identify if your actions are legal or civil or not.
    If you choose to commit a crime against anyone then your photograph and name should be published in the local news papers.Thieves and robbers give up any protections society affords them whenever they choose to break societies rules. Law-abiding citizens must be informed of who law-breakers are.We have a right to be informed.

    In today’s Surveillance State, I am sure that it would be no problem for a Susan Rice to obtain the information of what cellular devices were on the train, and in possession of the perps when the robert occurred. It should also be easy to track where the victim’s stolen phones went after being robed. But this is not the priority of our government. They have other more important agendas that protecting the public.

    If people in CA are not allowed firearms, they should at least start carrying a metal telescoping self defense stick like I have. Those babies can hit really hard. A whack to the wrist or forearm can dislodge a weapon and render would be attacker defenseless. It may even break bones. For sure it will hurt bad enough to make them want to retreat.

    Related foolishness is the refusal to disclose the perps’ race (es).

    The time is coming! Mark my words. The “silent majority” will only take so much. The leftist liberal progressive, commie pinko, snowflake moonbats are going to get a backlash the likes of which they could never imagine. They will wish the hell that they had moved to Canada or another country. Thanks to Oath Keepers and others, it has started. My gay daut( and I am not proud of that) now has her FLA concealed carry permit because of the murders at the gay club in Orlando and more are getting theirs. My wife just got hers this year. It is going to be a very long and hot summer. Keep ’em clean, and keep ’em loaded. The blow up is coming. God help us!

    Today in “Loseday” (newsday) news paper there are article of “gang members murderous rage” is a scourge upon our community~! Yet when I “protested” these same “Illegal aliens and gang members” and their “Federal Funded Felony Facility” (a federally funded “hiring site” exclusively for illegal aliens; no lie, still in operation today) a decade ago, this same propaganda outlet (Loseday) repeatedly called anyone who was concerned about these criminal actions affects in their community as a “RACIST” or a “HATER”.
    Also, as I found out that we voters really have no say in our elections, after I uncovered an election fraud involving at least 2500 voters, voting in the wrong U.S. Congressional district~! More importantly is that the only one punished for this major fact of election fraud, was “me”. My case is Gabriel Razzano vs. Carolyn McCarthy and Nassau County. Or; “if elections changed anything, elections would be outlawed”~!
