        Egypt was the first government entity to shut down cell phone service in the hopes to quell protests; followed by other Arabic/Islamic countries for the same reasons; they claim.
        Now, Bart (a pseudo government entity for public transportation in San Francisco) has shut down cell service for a few hours on Thursday around several stations.
        Officials claim they sought to tactically thwart a planned protest over the recent fatal shooting of a 45-year-old man by transit police; this being one of several shootings by Bart cops over the past few years.
        Some say it was necessary, some say it was illegal, others say it also caused safety issues.
        I say, governments and their offspring are taking too many liberties with our rights and as long as we remain silent, they will continue to do so.
        Yes, it does not state in the Constitution the right of cell phone service but it also does not state our method of conveying our right to Free Speech.
        How do you feel about this?

        Without knowing their true thoughts behind this action, it is difficult to say whether they did the right thing or not.  

        I have to say that just because they shut down the cell phone service, doesn't mean these people cannot communicate - facebook, twitter etc etc would have still been available so why didn't they shut down those services too.

        As for denying you the freedom to speak on your mobile phones, I think it is wrong for whatever reason.  It's very short sighted of them to think that shutting down the cell service will stop them communicating.

        Wow, that is just unthinkable! I mean I would have expected something like this to happen in Afghanistan but not in the "land of the free"! I hope there will be protests because something like this can not go unnoticed, it could make a stepping stone for even bigger and meaner infringements of the civil rights.
