It’s not the crime, but the cover up that comes back to bite you, and on the left coast, the Bay Area Rapid Transit is covering up crimes to keep from being called racist.
Why won’t they just tell people the truth about the crimes which are being committed?
MRCT-TV exposed the cover-up:
San Francisco’s public transit BART system is refusing to divulge the racial descriptors of those who have committed crimes out of fear of causing “racially insensitive commentary.”
According to CBS SF Bay Area, there have been “at least three robberies” on the BART system within the past three months committed by teenagers:
“April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two;
June 28: A group of four kids assaulted a passenger and made off with a cell phone at Dublin; and
June 30: A woman on a train with about a dozen teenagers had her phone snatched by one them before the group got off at the Coliseum stop. Thankfully, a good Samaritan was on hand to retrieve the phone.”
When confronted and asked to release info, BART said this:
Despite concerns about crime and the focus on transparency, however, BART has refused to hand over the videotapes of recent crime incidents as they would reportedly lead people to be “racially insensitive.”
Debora Allen, a member of the BART Board of Directors, said she was told, “To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district.”
Allen was also told releasing the tapes would “create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”
One would wonder what the Bay Area citizens think of this kind of cover-up and the lack of respect for their safety in favor of racial sensitivity.
