Local Idiot Kicked Off BART for Talking About Weapons of Mass Destruction
|No more talk of WMD|
Media outlets are reporting that at about 9:20 a.m., the man started telling passengers "you should be aware of weapons of mass destruction." However, it wasn't clear what the context was -- whether the man was making threats or whether he was just talking casually on the subject.
The passenger was taken off the train at the 12th Street BART station in Oakland. Police questioned him, only to conclude that he was "completely harmless."
According to BART spokesman Linton Johnson, the man told authorities he was simply exercising his right to free speech.
The man's short and disturbing diatribe caused 10-minute train delays.
