BART spokesman: ‘no right to free speech’

-by Nerdface-

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is in a real mess right now.  After a recent protest, Linton Johnson, a spokesperson for BART, said riders “don’t have the right to free speech inside the fare gates.”  Now more protesting is going on as people protest his idiotic statement.

Since when does using public transit (paid for in part by tax dollars—wikipedia says that in 2005 32% of BART’s funds came from taxes) mean you are waiving your right to free speech?
