    These @sshole protestors should be tasered!
    for the rapist with a rap record a block long..that they are defending..
    Where is the outrage for the Oakland 3 year old killed by the same thugs that they are defending!

  2. Anonymous says:

    The question over whether or not BART should have shut down cell phone reception is not one I believe we even need to raise. BART was trying to deny people their first admendment rights. Simple as that. @connie: who exactly are “the thugs that they are defending!” Most of Anonymous fights for freedom of speech and human rights, but the fact is, because of Anonymous’ nature, people like you can mistakenly believe that Anonymous as a whole fights for those people. The one thing that Anonymous as a whole fights for is nothing. Every group has good and bad people in it. Simple as that. The people who protested here were good; they followed the law, and they spoke out against something the felt was wrong. Unless you have a reason to hate the First Amendment, which in that case I wouldn’t consider you a true American, I do not think you should be trolling against what Anonymous did.

    1. Tony Vaguely says:

      Free speech is a fundamental constitutional RIGHT. PERIOD. Welcome to the new hypocritically occupied America.

      Rhonda COLLINS; Plaintiffs-Appellees,
      v. Frank JORDAN, Defendant,

      United States Court of Appeals,
      Ninth Circuit.

      Enjoining or preventing First Amendment activities before demonstrators have acted illegally or before the demonstration poses a clear and present danger is presumptively a First Amendment violation. Carroll v. President and Com’rs of Princess Anne, 393 U.S. 175, 180-81, 89 S.Ct. 347, 351-52, 21 L.Ed.2d 325 (1968); Laurence Tribe, American Constitutional Law, § 12-34, at 1041 (2d ed. 1987) (collecting cases). The generally accepted way of dealing with unlawful conduct that may be intertwined with First Amendment activity is to punish it after it occurs, rather than to prevent the First Amendment activity from occurring in order to obviate the possible unlawful conduct. Carroll, 393 U.S. at 180-81, 89 S.Ct. at 351-52; Kunz v. New York, 340 U.S. 290, 294, 71 S.Ct. 312, 315, 95 L.Ed. 280 (1951) (distinguishing subsequent punishment from suppression of speech); Collin v. Chicago Park District, 460 F.2d 746, 754 (7th Cir.1972).

    ban cell phones usage in public.

  4. M@ says:

    I think it’s wonderful they peacefully protested against BART for infringing on people’s First Amendment rights. Everyone should be protesting this, not just Anonymous. Americans should fight tooth and nail when their First Amendment rights are being stepped on. That is the basis of what our great country was founded upon. You take those rights away and we may as well be part of the cold-war Soviet Union. Well done for doing it peacefully, Anonymous!

  5. Nick says:

    We need to not forget the BIG picture here. The Bart police are getting away with murder. There starting to use the cell phone shut off as a cover up in hopes people will forget why these protests started in the first place.

    1. Bill says:

      Nick And ignoramous Annomous your nuts ! Be aware you are being profiled ! Hackers be damned. Stupid fools that were misfired from the gene pool. You are the freaks of nature that mess up our computers that conduct the life breath of the nation and a enemy of mankind.

      1. Nick says:

        LOL Profile me all you want. I couldn’t hack a V-chip on a TV even if I wanted too. I don’t support hackers but the big thing here is these so called Bart police had it coming. They will not get away with murdering innocent people. These Rent-a-cops are there to hold the peace not disrupt it.

  6. Urolizzard says:

    Right on why is that not so annonomous idiot arrested and questioned about the hacking. Hackers should hang I would pay to watch them wiggle and spin as justice is served. Hey a way to offset the financial and ethical impact of there crime. Now do you think he would spin to the left or to the right
    I guess left.

    1. ... says:

      you are stupid. and ignorant.

  7. Joseph Orlando says:

    When law enforcement deny a American fudemental right of freedom of speach it is down right scary. This has to be protested and made right . I just hope the people of the bay area take a deep breath relax the mind like some hippie in Golden Gate Park and really take a look at this for what it is. UNACCEPTABLE !
