“April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two”
“…we would certainly face questions as to why we were sensationalizing relatively minor crimes and perpetuating false stereotypes in the process.”
So a group of 40 to 60 kids robbing and beating people up is a relatively minor crime? Exactly what constitutes a major crime?
To not be racially biased BART would need to either release all videos of crimes committed or no videos of crimes committed – regardless of the race / gender / creed of the suspects. If BART is not releasing the video due to the race of the suspects that makes BART racially biased. Is this a good place to link to the definition of hypocrisy?
