BART Shuts Down 4 Stations, Faces FCC Probe

August 16, 2011  | 

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police shut down four stations in downtown San Francisco, following ongoing protesting of the fatal shooting of a homeless man in July.

BART police shut down stations along Market Street on Monday, but didn't disrupt cellphone service as it did last week, which spurred online hacking from an activist group known as Anonymous, reports The Atlantic Wire.

BART police said the station closures were a safety measure to prevent dangerously overcrowded platforms.

The agency's move to block cellular service in its tunnels to disrupt Aug. 11 protests over the July 3 shooting has resulted in a legal challenge from the Federal Communications Commission, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Not sure that was the best response. Cell phones are a hassle but they do save lives better than a gun ever could.
