BART Police should turn over Criminals to ICE if they are here illegally:
Thugs, gang members, thieves. *
When the "bad dudes" realize they can be deported, they may behave better.

*Do they have a policy to address?
Felony vs. Misdemeanor.
A parking ticket or a traffic ticket should be treated differently.

And hurry up and fix the cameras, and monitor them.

Take out all the seats starting at the front of the train with the operators seat all the way to the last train car where the homeless sleep, sell off all the parking lots for stack and pack housing and just add maybe a couple hundred thousand bike lockers. Up the pay on those poor overworked janitors to make that magic 300 thousand yearly salary so they can quit hiding out in supply closets all day and maybe start cleaning those filthy stations and train cars.

JohnMcPartland: when you voted to remove the seats, did you add more seats for Seniors and disabled? Hope so, its impossible for anyone to give up the reserved seats to standing seniors, so making more stand is poor planning and inconsiderate.
