BART Protest Set For 5 PM in San Francisco - Why SF?

There's a planned BART Protest set for 5 PM in San Francisco, but why the heck someone would try San Francisco is weird to me. Whatever the case, this is what KGO put out:

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A different kind of obstacle is expected in downtown San Francisco Monday night, when BART protestors are expected to take their outrage across the Bay for the first time.

The latest noisy protest over the shooting of Oscar Grant at the Fruitvale BART station will be held in San Francisco around 5:00 p.m. and could affect traffic. There could also be a vocal turnout when BART explains a new review of its police Monday afternoon.

Monday morning, BART riders found a quieter form of protest in their seats waiting for them as they boarded.
They found flyers that look like something BART might issue, until you read the text.

The anonymous author compares BART Police to a violent gang saying, "All members of this gang, which refers to itself as the "BART Police" are known to carry firearms." It goes on to say, "This vigilante group considers itself above the law."

It was obviously not written by anyone in BART administration and prompted a response from BART spokesman Linton Johnson who said, "This is definitely not BART putting these flyers out. These are disgusting quite frankly. This is pretty shameful on whoever put this out."
