A male victim on the platform was robbed of his wallet by three suspects. The suspects fled to the street and responding officers were unable to locate them.
Be like this guy- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRsT81gfou8 this guy defended himself against two robbers. He wasn't about to let himself be a victim of crime to two scrawny punk losers with a fake gun that looked legit. He never got convicted and sentenced. Bring a weapon of self defense and let these criminals who use bart as their hunting grounds know that their nonsense will not be tolerated. The police are useless and don't really care about the publics safety on bart. Hint: the black guy was stabbed in the face during the altercation. If you see a black guy with a knife wound scar on his face, that guy is a robber. The white guy was stabbed in the intestines.
assuming he knew how to use it, but would not be necessary if bart had enough security
He wouldn't have been a victim if he had a firearm on him.
