  1. Well of course BART cops didn’t find the guy, who changed clothes immediately after boarding the train. Thugs routinely wear several layers of clothing so that they can quickly disguise themselves after a crime. In West Oakland, the cops stopped a group of thugs who had committed a crime against me, and I made the thugs show their layers of clothing. Each of them had the exact same 4 or 5 colored T shirts on, possibly in a different order. This guy probably put his security uniform in his backpack and changed his hair. People on the train would have thought he was going home from work and not given it a second thought.
