BART Protest: Only Three People Showed Up

That's quite a turnaround from the 40 or so protesters who were proudly arrested at previous demonstrations held in response to the July 3 shooting of Charles Hill. But, admittedly, even we forgot about the weekly Monday demonstration until we picked up this morning's Examiner, which gave us the blow-by-blow of exactly what happened: Nothing.
According to the Ex:
Barbara Bettenburg, 61, of San Francisco was one of the three. She held a sign that read, "Stand down BART police." Another protester left after 15 minutes. "It's still an issue," she said.Apparently it's not. Someone please break the news to Bettenburg. She can go home now.
Whether this hiatus lasts or not, it appears commuters don't have to worry much more about station closures or halted BART trains keeping them from getting home. And we don't have to worry about staying late to cover it.
