    Oakland, California

    The attack took place last Saturday at 21:30. It took the American media some 36 hours to report on the attack, but the race of the attackers was hidden in the reports.

    Black youths began to jump over the ticket gates on the Coliseum Station platform, boarded a train and attacked passengers. At least seven people were robbed. Two of the victims suffered facial and head injuries.

    A spokeswoman for BART said it was not the first time they were attacked. The offenders are protected because they are “too young”.

    There are surveillance videos of the attack, but they are not released. The police in Oakland say they can not share the video because the offenders might be under the age of 18, but may eyewitnesses deny that the attackers were children.

    Oakland police say they will show the video instead to administrators at Oakland’s public schools and housing projects.

    Fruitvale Station, located close to the Coliseum Station, was recently the subject of a Hollywood movie with the same name. The movie tells the story of how blacks are regularly attacked on the BART train by “racist white police officers” for no reason.

    After the Bay Area Rapid Transport, BART, had distributed free software, the “BART Watch app”, for smartphones two years ago to combat rising crime on trains, the reports from the app made it abundantly clear that African-Americans were responsible for transgressions, and the transport authorities hurried to take down the application due to allegations of “racism”.

    Hollywood then released the movie about “white racists”, blaming BART for “racism”, because black criminals were six times overrepresented in criminal acts on the transport system.

    The Ella Baker Center, funded by the American Neocon construction giant Bechtel, was instrumental in “exposing” the “white racism” on BART. Bechtel is the second largest recipient of so-called “reconstruction dollars” in Iraq after Halliburton.

    The disturbing weekend incident of mob violence on a BART train resulted in yet another earlier white victim coming forward. She says she too was violently attacked on a train by a black woman and was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome after suffering multiple blows to the head while riding on a BART train in Oakland back in February.

    Not getting a response, she reached out to a BART board member with text messages from her witnesses, one whom a month later says she had not been contacted by police. Another said she was only called by police in the first week of April.

    “They could’ve maybe caught these people, maybe if they realise this was a string and a lot of events that were happening on BART, something like what happened over the weekend may not have happened,” Tess Pawlisch told KRON4 news.
