Anonymous takes on BART over cell phone shut down

In July, BART police shot dead a homeless man wielding a knife. Some questioned whether lethal force was warranted. To thwart a protest, BART officials temporarily shut down cell phone coverage in stations. The move attracted the ire of Anonymous. The hacker group broke into myBART.org and publicized personal info of BART users. An Anonymous protest also caused service disruption, but the group denied a second hack exposing BART cops’ personal info. No matter who wins the war between the two, it seems commuters will continue to be collateral damage. ENGLISH:
