First of all, how on earth did they get so many teens involved with this plot without one of them ratting it out? Second of all, where were their parents? Third of all, how the heck did they think this could have possibly been a “smart” idea!? Hooligans!

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

According to a police officials, witnesses said 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.

The juveniles “committed multiple strong-arm robberies of bags and cell phones,” said a police summary prepared after the incident. “At least two victims suffered head/facial injuries requiring medical attention.”

Alicia Trost, a BART spokeswoman, said Monday that seven robberies had occurred — with victims losing a purse, a duffel bag and five phones. Six people were robbed inside the train car, with a seventh confronted on the platform, she said.

The attack was quick, police reported, and the teenagers were able to retreat from the station and vanish into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood before BART officers could respond. The train that was hit was held for about 15 minutes as authorities investigated the crime and tended to the injured.

I would expect to hear about this happening in other countries where children run rampant and criminals get away with brutal acts…..but here in the US? This is kind of shocking.

Whether they were “unarmed” or not, this DEFINITELY constituted for deadly force in order to stop them. They literally beat passengers on the train, and two of them were beat so badly, they needed medical attention! This is NOT just kids being kids.
