The Bay Are Rapid Transit was met with delays and an ultimate shut down Friday (Nov. 28) morning as a group of protestors descended upon a station in West Oakland. The protests stem from a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for gunning down Ferguson teen, Mike Brown, and ongoing cases of cops killing civilians and facing little-to-no consequence.
Demonstrators chained themselves to trains on either side of the station before being arrested by police. The peaceful protests follows a similar event during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City yesterday.
BART train service was restored about two hours later.
