SF Weekly's Evening at the BART Rally
|Riot police at Civic Center BART station|
At 4:30 p.m. on Monday, a BART train pulls up to the Civic Center platform. The doors slide open and passengers disembark, looking around curiously once they realize each set of doors is flanked by two BART security guards in fluorescent yellow vests.
In the middle of the platform, a small group of people can be seen milling around, passing out fliers that say: 3 SHOT DEAD IN AS MANY YEARS! DISBAND THE BART POLICE! The fliers have three faces on them: Oscar Grant, Fred Collins, and Charles Hill. The latter was killed in a lethal shooting by BART police last Thursday.
