Ostrich Syndrome

Halls of Macadamia: 

So we’ll pretend it’s not happening… that’ll fix the problem…

Officials from BART, the public metro system serving California’s San Francisco Bay area, have come under fire for their refusal to release crime surveillance videos, claiming such tapes will promote stereotypes and “stir up racial animosity.”

A BART official defended the agency’s decision on Monday by saying information about criminal misconduct will be withheld at this time because of the media’s “disproportionate elevation” of crimes that “unfairly affect and characterize riders of color.”

Hell’s bells… here in Canada, this is standard operating procedure…  MORE

  1. “…..claiming such tapes will promote stereotypes and “stir up racial animosity.””

    In other words, N-words did it.

    Eventualy you Won’t have a Name in San Francisco, as it encourages Individuality and Personal Freedoms….Live with it #131313

  3. What a cesspool!

    Another reason not to travel to big cities and think about visiting “flyover” country and deploraville.

  4. But if accosted by one of these Afro-Miscreants and in fear for your life and you shoot the bastard, you’ll be lucky if they don’t publish your address for the Miscreant’s ‘brutha’s’ to find you

  5. How did the word “unfairly” get in there. That sticks out like a lady penis in the softball team showers.

  6. It’s been city hall policy for years now not to identify the color or ethnicity of criminal suspects, in some cases even when the cops are asking for help in capturing them. It’s only in a few cases where the cops have reached a dead end and the criminals are particulalry nasty will they release descriptions and in more then a few cases videotape they had. Stupid bastards.

  7. Have they caught the perps? If not, wouldn’t releasing the videos to the public go a long way to perhaps identifying and arresting these dindus? Just saying.
