This is a good old fashioned case of one organization thinking their cause is more important than everything and everyone else. This applies to both BART and Anonymous. In both cases they completely disregarded the implications on all individuals involved. Whether the end justified the means is up for debate, but the fact is, it's a violation of rights. Sure, lazy, impatient Americans probably would rather have their cell phones turned off by big brother than sit in traffic for several hours, but that doesn't make it right. I don't agree with it, and I would say that Anonymous' reaction was more out of principle than actual retaliation.

That's what they get for being PlayStation fanboys. I, personally, think they deserve a lot worse.
