Add comment on:Unsafe At Any Speed: Another BART Police Shooting
On Monday, July 11, 2011, approximately 250 people flooded the San Francisco Civic Center Station of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to protest the killing of Charles Hill. Hill, aged 45, a long time alcoholic and intoxicated at the time of being shot by an unnamed BART Transit cop. The cop reported that Hill “lunged” at him with a knife, but eyewitness statements have emerged that directly contradict the officer’s report. This is the third death at the hands of the BART police since 2009, when Hayward resident Oscar Grant was shot at point blank range by BART transit cop Johannes Mesherle.
