BART Withholding Surveillance Videos Of Crime To Avoid ‘Stereotypes’

by Melissa Caen
July 9, 2017 4:18 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — In the last three months, there have been at least three robberies on BART involving groups of teenagers.

BART stands for Bay Area Rapid Transit.

“I think people are genuinely concerned — they are fearful about the stories that have come out about the recent attacks, the assaults, the thefts,” said Debora Allen, who is a member of the BART Board of Directors.

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.

So far, BART has refused to turn over surveillance video for any of these incidents.

Allen told us the agency issued an explanation for why it is being tight-lipped about the thefts.

“To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district,” she was told. “And in addition it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”

According to a memo distributed to BART Directors, the agency won’t do a press release on the June 30 theft because it was a “petty crime” that would make BART look “crime ridden.” Furthermore, it would “unfairly affect and characterize riders of color, leading to sweeping generalizations in media reports.”

The memo was from BART Assistant General Manager Kerry Hamill.

Allen emailed Hamill, “I don’t understand what role the color of one’s skin plays in this issue [of whether to divulge information]. Can you explain?” Hamill responded, “If we were to regularly feed the news media video of crimes on our system that involve minority suspects, particularly when they are minors, we would certainly face questions as to why we were sensationalizing relatively minor crimes and perpetuating false stereotypes in the process.” …

There is a lot more in the rest of the article. This kind of thing is of course common, but it’s seldom so well-documented.

In case you were wondering, reporter Melissa Caen is the daughter-in-law of local legend columnist Herb Caen.

    I dunno. Seems Herb's lil gal Melissa is apprising the public of something of which right-leaning racial realists should well approve:

    We don't want them stereotyped, so we won't tell you which the bad ones are. Even--especially--when we know.

    That way you won't worry about particular blacks and mestizos known to have committed crimes owing to being identified as individuals.

    To be especially safe and sure: avoid them all.

    That sort of self-segregation accounts for, say, the Melanin Line of, say, Shattuck north of Cedar in Berkeley.

    Of course the people who live up there rarely take BART. Doubleplusgood, and screw yall rabble! Our segregation is VIRTUOUS!

    No, Debora the SJW, it would inform the general public of the potential for violent crime, and thus riders can take the appropriate steps to protect themselves.

    I haven't been on the BART in years and I certainly won't be doing so any time soon. The BART line, by the way, was the sight of the Oscar Grant shooting, which was kind of the original Trayvon, at least locally. A less often discussed aspect of that case is that the BART police showed up in response to a large group of black men, full of alcohol and club drugs, were brawling on the train. As California goes, etc.

    Which of course shows how racial hierarchy works; blacks are so much higher (lower) than other “POCs” that other “POCs” get to take the hit for blacks. Non-black “POCs” being used as cultural human shields on behalf of blacks. Enforce a phony “non-white coalition” so an attack on one is an attack on all.

    How can you be perpetuating "false stereotypes" by releasing all the video--i.e. by giving out all the data. By definition any stereotypes rendered by such data would be at least locally--for this particular situation (i.e. riding a BART train)--true.

    I realize you don't exactly have to be particularly bright, to climb the greasy pole in the public bureaucracy, especially as a woman doing PR flacking. Still this is abusively stupid. It's just amazing to me how college educated professionals routinely and smugly parrot abject stupidity and pat themselves on the back for it. It's like living in the Soviet Union now.

    When BART was built, there were news stories and academic studies about how areas like Oakland were underserved. Some areas paid more in taxes than they got in terms of platforms or stops. Suburbs did better.

    Of course, there may have been further demographic considerations in the platform placements. In a more recent case here in SoCal, Beverly Hills and surrounding areas like Cheviot Hills and Century City went through their own light rail stop resistance movement. One unstated theme was "Why import crime."

    Those people ride the Pleasant Hill - SFO BART line, which is probably the safest (relatively speaking). It goes through 4 stations in Oakland which have a somewhat higher concentration of sketchy elements (MacArthur, 19th St., 12th St., and West Oakland), but I used to commute on it and problems are few compared to the lines that go to Richmond (which I also used to commute on) and Fremont. Those BART lines pass through the most ghetto parts of the East Bay (Richmond and East Oakland), and have a lot of the worst riders -- packs of unruly teenagers, and small groups of thuggish-looking dudes who pace from car to car. The Dublin/Pleasanton line also goes through the East Oakland stations (including Coliseum and Fruitvale), so it will have its share of problem riders.

    I’d like to say that the admission that they’re holding back the video in se tells us everything we need to know. Except, I know that a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is 30 pictures a second. People react to seeing things way differently and way more powerfully than reading about things.

    Jeez folks can't we just all wait until the videos shows up on WSHH??? I suspect that BART only withheld the video because it is under some as yet undisclosed contractual obligation with WSHH to allow them an exclusive.

    I am sure the WSHH footage will include some insightful commentary from none other than the perps themselves on how all this activity was provoked on account of the legacy of slavery.

    Liberals claim to love blacks, but they are able to do so only by insisting upon an imaginary view of them. The blacks they love aren't like the actual blacks that live among us, so the love liberals feel for them is a sham. How can you be said to love someone if what you love is an idealized version of them, not the reality? We see this dynamic often in personal relationships, and sooner or later the delusion by which the adoration is maintained collapses, unless there is some sick psychological reason for maintaining it. An example would be a well brought-up woman who stays with a bum boyfriend to spite her parents. In America, the well brought-up woman is liberalism, the bum boyfriend is the black community, and the parents are non-liberals.

    Even then, when too many of them proved to be of blacks, the so-called civil rights groups demanded they be suppressed, and now the only time one sees mention that a crime suspect is black is when he is alleged to be the victim of police brutality.

    It probably took a year or so before someone spelled out NAM for me. Yes, I too figured out the meaning if not the acronymized words. (NAM = non-Asian minority.)

    Maybe we need a Sailer glossary.

    No glossary is needed, and none would suffice in any case, since the phenomenon extends to people inventing from whole cloth their own acronyms ad hoc, which cannot possibly have any meaning accepted by convention (as, say, “U.S.A.” does). What is needed is for people to write as though they had passed a third grade class on composition.

    Admitting that they are hiding video to avoid stereotypes is unusually honest and reinforces not just the stereotypes but the idea that there is a genuine conspiracy to stop the public from noticing.

    The proliferation of video recordings and the associated technologies to archive and share will make it much harder to hide truth. The inverse manipulation tactic is to drown out truth with misinformation.

    Jeez folks can’t we just all wait until the videos shows up on WSHH??? I suspect that BART only withheld the video because it is under some as yet undisclosed contractual obligation with WSHH to allow them an exclusive.

    I am sure the WSHH footage will include some insightful commentary from none other than the perps themselves on how all this activity was provoked on account of the legacy of slavery.

    There's also FART, the service that runs from Fresno in central California to Fairfax north of San Francisco.

    Speaking of FART, when I was in SF waiting for the cable car, there was a mentally ill black woman walking around near the embarkation point. She had shat herself wetly down the back of her pants and one leg. She was walking around pointing it out and complaining about it to everyone and no one in particular at the top of her voice.

    Although the hills around the SF valley are beautiful, my main take-away from visiting the city was that the cost of living was wholly undeserved.

    When BART was built, there were news stories and academic studies about how areas like Oakland were underserved. Some areas paid more in taxes than they got in terms of platforms or stops. Suburbs did better.

    Of course, there may have been further demographic considerations in the platform placements.

Anarcho-tyranny is indeed what it is - and if another Bernie Goetze tries to defend himself, or take a stand against abuse of white people, the videos will come out everywhere. The prosecution will note that this new white defender missed multiple chances to RUN AWAY, so it was not self-defense, and he will be put away for a long time.

    Even in other states, there would be a trial, but the guy may have a decent chance to avoid being put away for manslaughter. In California, he wouldn't have a chance in hell, and that state gov't absolutely HATES guns in the hands of anyone besides criminals and the AUTHORITAH.

    Now, were the self-defendant Oriental, say Korean, it may be a different story. The Korean "community" will close around the guy and defend him wrt public opinion, which, unfortunately has lots of affect on the legal action. A commenter mentioned that he has seen Orientals getting harassed the most, so that would probably be the best situation to have happen. Though I would back a guy like Bernie Goetz, CA law wouldn't, but the Orientals and almost every group but white people believe tribe comes above the law anyway. It'd be interesting, and if a 3 or 4 thugs have to die, that's a small price to pay bonus.

  119. Apparently there wasn’t a token wigger in the mob that the media could freeze frame to try and portray as representative of the attackers. It was 100% black. If there was any way they could have spun this as non-racial or white-on-black they would have so, so the only thing they could do was bury it.

    A month ago, I went back and looked at the 8 minute film of the Rodney King beat-down. This was shot back in the day when only very few people had hand held camcorders and YouTube did not exist. It was still possible for the media to get film footage and chop it down to 10 seconds of the worst part and then play it over and over without anyone being able to counter the images. The (((mass media))) had a complete monopoly on the public airwaves so there was no way to reasonably fight back. During the trial, the attorneys for the cops ran the full 8 minutes over and over to the jury which is why they were acquitted but all the public saw was the 10 seconds and they rioted. That is the power of the media.

    Those days are now behind us forever so they only thing they can do is build a firewall and try to keep the truth crossing over into the mass media. The last stand of the liberals will be keeping the alt-right off the public airwaves.

    I read between the lines here, I think the reason they're not releasing the videos is to let potential victims realize it's okay to weapon-up and then when you begin shooting, well there won't be any videos released.

    Also it probably is black teens because the white teens are being trained on how to really rip people off via white-collar crimes.

    I think the reason they’re not releasing the videos is to let potential victims realize it’s okay to weapon-up and then when you begin shooting, well there won’t be any videos released.

    As much as I’d like to believe that, keep in mind Knotnull, that these people are not on our side. Anarcho-tyranny is indeed what it is – and if another Bernie Goetze tries to defend himself, or take a stand against abuse of white people, the videos will come out everywhere. The prosecution will note that this new white defender missed multiple chances to RUN AWAY, so it was not self-defense, and he will be put away for a long time.

    Even in other states, there would be a trial, but the guy may have a decent chance to avoid being put away for manslaughter. In California, he wouldn’t have a chance in hell, and that state gov’t absolutely HATES guns in the hands of anyone besides criminals and the AUTHORITAH.

    Now, were the self-defendant Oriental, say Korean, it may be a different story. The Korean “community” will close around the guy and defend him wrt public opinion, which, unfortunately has lots of affect on the legal action. A commenter mentioned that he has seen Orientals getting harassed the most, so that would probably be the best situation to have happen. Though I would back a guy like Bernie Goetz, CA law wouldn’t, but the Orientals and almost every group but white people believe tribe comes above the law anyway. It’d be interesting, and if a 3 or 4 thugs have to die, that’s a small price to pay bonus.

    BTW, when searching on here for the spelling of Bernie Goetz, I see Jack Hanson and I are in agreement – I think most of us have much more we can agree on than not. Good to see that.

    @Achmed E. Newman we are now in the "recursive treachery" phase. They'll project the notion that no videos will be released. But they have the videos, they always have the videos and use when/if needed and for whatever purpose they choose.

    Most likely they'll show the videos when the "racial" confrontations have gotten to some low point and need to be rekindled.

    Apparently there wasn't a token wigger in the mob that the media could freeze frame to try and portray as representative of the attackers. It was 100% black. If there was any way they could have spun this as non-racial or white-on-black they would have so, so the only thing they could do was bury it.

    A month ago, I went back and looked at the 8 minute film of the Rodney King beat-down. This was shot back in the day when only very few people had hand held camcorders and YouTube did not exist. It was still possible for the media to get film footage and chop it down to 10 seconds of the worst part and then play it over and over without anyone being able to counter the images. The (((mass media))) had a complete monopoly on the public airwaves so there was no way to reasonably fight back. During the trial, the attorneys for the cops ran the full 8 minutes over and over to the jury which is why they were acquitted but all the public saw was the 10 seconds and they rioted. That is the power of the media.

    Those days are now behind us forever so they only thing they can do is build a firewall and try to keep the truth crossing over into the mass media. The last stand of the liberals will be keeping the alt-right off the public airwaves. The internet has been completely overrun but they still hold out that CNN, MSNBC, and NPR won't be taken over by us.

    Professor, with all respect (because the internet says you are a professor ;-}, I wouldn’t put it as “overrun”, as that sounds like a take-over of the internet. It’s just that there are still more people who want the truth than those who don’t (mostly because of their FEEEEELINGS!, and a smaller crowd who they have their own agenda that doesn’t jibe with the truth).

    The internet is still a free market of ideas. That’s what really torques-off the cntrl-left. I am no IP/internet expert, so I don’t know how far they can go, but they do want to get it under their control. Don’t assume victory on this free speech thing yet.

    I was trying to say a couple of things at once which is probably a mistake. My first point is that thanks to the internet, it is getting harder for the MSM to lie or manipulate. The truth catches up more quickly now. This in turn is leading to outright banning and repression of the right by the left on the public airwaves because the MSM cannot finesse this any longer.

    My second point is that this situation will remain status quo until the alt-right has access to the MSM. We don't need to control what the existing media outlets can say and not say. We need to be able to produce our own content and have unfettered access preferably on our own networks. This will further self correct the truth problem that the said media outlets have because they cannot hide behind silence. The MSM still has an enormous influence. It does so because it forces the rest of the public to stop hiding as well. Something can be well traveled on the internet while remaining obscure from 99% of the population but once it is in the public domain, it cannot be ignored or squelched.

    Lastly, I am not a professor; thank goodness. Nor am I Woland. That is a reference for the devil whom I renounce (its probably about time I change my name).

    It'd be nice to hope. But the reality is that any would be Goetz better have several million dollars of liability insurance and be self employed or in a position they can't be fired for self defense, cause any AG in California's anarcho tyranny is going to attempt to make a political career out of crucifying the shooter.

    I imagine most CCW holders ask themselves "Would I go there without my gun?" If the answer is no, then they don't go there period.

    A friend slipped his .45 into an IWB (inside the waistband) holster while dressing to attend an event with his wife. She asked, “Do you really think you’re going to need your gun at the Christmas party?”

    He responded, “No, if I really thought I’d need my gun at the Christmas party I wouldn’t go.”

    Debora is not the SJW here. It's Kerry Hamil she was quoting and questioning. Debora is the one fighting the good fight. She represent the 680 corridor towns of Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, whose people are victimized when they ride through certain part of Oakland.

    All people in her district should write her to encourage her to have Kerry Hamil fired. I just wrote to my BART direct on that effect.

    She represent the 680 corridor towns of Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, whose people are victimized when they ride through certain part of Oakland.

    Those people ride the Pleasant Hill – SFO BART line, which is probably the safest (relatively speaking). It goes through 4 stations in Oakland which have a somewhat higher concentration of sketchy elements (MacArthur, 19th St., 12th St., and West Oakland), but I used to commute on it and problems are few compared to the lines that go to Richmond (which I also used to commute on) and Fremont. Those BART lines pass through the most ghetto parts of the East Bay (Richmond and East Oakland), and have a lot of the worst riders — packs of unruly teenagers, and small groups of thuggish-looking dudes who pace from car to car. The Dublin/Pleasanton line also goes through the East Oakland stations (including Coliseum and Fruitvale), so it will have its share of problem riders.

    Rich White Democrats don't take BART and don't much care what happens there. BART is for poor Whites and non-Whites.

    Rich White Democrats don’t take BART and don’t much care what happens there.

    Not true. Lots of rich white Democrats from Berkeley, Albany, the nice parts of Oakland, Piedmont, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, etc. ride BART. They sit quietly with earbuds in, studiously ignore the packs of feral teens and pairs of bad-looking dudes walking from car to car mean-mugging the whole train, and hope they won’t be noticed or targeted.

    They may even talk to their fellow RWDs about bad behavior on BART sometimes. But to avoid social ostracism, they will bend over backwards to avoid giving the impression that they notice any ethnic patterns.

    This is a very late reply, Prof ( I know..) but thanks for writing back - I just saw your reply.

    Who knows if TV and print newspapers, especially the latter, will be around in anything resembling their present form for much longer? That's why I don't think getting conservatives into the "MSM" is as important as making sure the internet stays free. The latter is more of a thing we should be worrying about.

    Look at Alex Jones, for example. I don't know if he's ever been on TV, per se, other than some short interview. It doesn't matter though - many people know who he is. I like him, but I will say his voice has been shot - it sounds like he needs to drink a glass of water, but it's always the same. He's hard to listen to, but his opinions are pretty truthful.

    Cable TV is losing customers, I'm pretty sure, from recollections of articles on Zerohedge. It'd be good if that trend accelerated.

    BTW, yeah, you could have been a professor - it doesn't matter to me on here. My name is not Achmed either - I guess most get that ;-}

    OK, now get back to class - you have a young coed waiting who needs some help with integration by parts.

    Goetz was a loser. He ended up getting found guilty in both criminal and civil court. He was sentenced to one year in jail, one year’s psychiatric treatment, 200 hours community service, and a $5,000 fine. In civil court he received a judgement of $43 million that he yet to pay on.
