BART Police Rant

Bart Police car at Dublin/Pleasanton stationImage via WikipediaBy now the whole nation has heard... How a BART Police officer, arresting some rowdy folks New Year's Eve, ended up shooting a young man who's already on the ground and being restrained, in the back. The man later died in the hospital. The whole thing was caught by multiple cellphone cameras and witnesses.

Now the officer has resigned from BART Police so he cannot be compelled to testify against himself.

One theory is that he mistaken his regular duty pistol for the taser, though how can one be mistaken for the other boggles the mind.

A truly WTF situation.
