close Video Men volunteer to provide security for BART passengers Group of Bay Area men take time out of their schedules to walk BART passengers to their cars in effort to make them feel safe after the recent brutal killing of Nia Wilson and two other deadly attacks. A recent spike in crime on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system --including the brutal killing of an 18-year-old girl and two other slayings -- has motivated a group of men to take it upon themselves to provide security. The group's formation comes after three people died in unrelated attacks at BART stations in the span of just one week. In one of the attacks, 18-year-old Nia Wilson was stabbed to death while her 26-year-old sister, Lahtifa Wilson, was also injured. For two hours each day, the group of men carry "safety escort" signs and walk commuters to their vehicles in parking lots near the train stations. "If they say 'No,' we just move on to the next passenger," the group's organizer, Rodney Alamo … [Read more...] about BART crime spike across San Francisco Bay Area spurs volunteers to escort riders to cars
By John Phillips | PUBLISHED: July 24, 2018 at 11:45 am | UPDATED: July 24, 2018 at 11:59 am Move over Orient Express, a new murder train has left the station — as three innocent people have been murdered in cold blood, over a five day stretch at Bay Area Rapid Transit stations in Northern California. Outrageously, politically-correct BART officials have twisted themselves into San Francisco pretzels trying to hide the details of these crimes from the public, and have even attempted to downplay the carnage as a statistical “anomaly.” Only in the upside-down world of Golden State guilt do public officials feel more comfortable falsely telling their riders that everything is safe, as opposed to acknowledging the obvious fact that enabling the homeless, neutering the cops and going soft on crime has turned their crazy train into the carnage caboose. More on that in a bit. On Sunday night, 18 year-old Nia Wilson was stabbed to death by a complete stranger, as she … [Read more...] about San Francisco Bay Area’s ‘crazy train’ counts three murders in five days — and BART officials hid the details
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The hunt for a man police say killed an 18-year-old woman in an unprovoked knife attack in the San Francisco Bay Area ended where it began: in a train station. John Cowell, 27, a recently paroled robber with a reported history of drug use, homelessness and violence, was peacefully arrested on an Antioch-bound train Monday night about a dozen miles from the Oakland station where investigators believe he killed Nia Wilson and wounded her sister Sunday night. Authorities said they weren't ruling out race as a factor in the stabbings. The arrest "is the first step to achieving justice for Nia and her family," Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Chief Carlos Rojas said at a news conference. A phone call from a BART rider led police to stop and search a Richmond-bound train at the MacArthur Station in Oakland but Cowell wasn't aboard, Rojas said. "About 10 minutes later after we got the call, another patron told us the subject got on an Antioch-bound train," he said. That train … [Read more...] about Was race a factor in fatal Bay Area train platform stabbing?

Garcia July 23, 2018 The authorities in California are searching for a man who they say fatally stabbed a young woman and wounded her sister at an Oakland transit station on Sunday night, the latest of at least three unrelated homicides at Bay Area transit stations in less than a week. In a statement released on Monday, the Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Department identified the stabbing suspect as 27-year-old John Lee Cowell and warned that he “should be considered dangerous.” Chief Carlos Rojas of the BART Police Department told reporters Monday that Mr. Cowell was recently cited for fare evasion. Available court records show that Mr. Cowell has committed criminal and traffic-related offenses, but they do not detail the nature of the crimes.
