""using music players without headphones"? Do you really think that should be a punishable offense ?"
Well, YES. It's a rule. If there are no consequences for breaking the rules, why have them at all? I don't think someone should go to jail for it, but they should get kicked off BART.
To Jeff Diver - the new investment strategy is not "buy low, sell high." It's "pay cash, beat out actual human residents who need to rely on financing."
"...now they may feel threatened because they're worried about their smartphones and other electronics being stolen."
No, they (and I) are worried about having a gun stuck in their face and being assaulted, pistol-whipped or beaten, which seems to be increasingly common in these robberies. The loss of the electronics is minor by comparison and "being stolen" is a very passive way to describe these violent crimes.
