Transit police chief: Calif. officer slaying was first on-duty officer death in BART history

DUBLIN, Calif. (AP) — A Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer accidentally shot and killed a fellow officer Tuesday in the first on-duty fatality in the department’s 40-year history, authorities said.

BART Cop Accidentally Shoots And Kills Fellow Officer During Home Search

The officers were conducting a search at a home in the East Bay city of Dublin when the shooting occurred just after 1 p.m. BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey said the officers were following up on a crime that was committed on BART property.

The officer who was shot was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.

“The entire BART organization is deeply saddened by this tragic event, and we ask the public to keep the officer’s family in its thoughts and prayers,” Rainey and BART General Manager Grace Crunican said in a joint statement.

They added the officers’ identity and other details are being withheld at this time.

Rainey noted the killing was the first death of an officer in the line of duty in the BART Police Department’s history. Both Rainey and Crunican have visited with the deceased officer’s family to provide condolences and offer support.

The Dublin Police Department, which contracts with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, has taken over the investigation.

    Put that shooter on everyone of those raids, he’s the only one doing a public service. He deserves a public service medal for his valuable contribution to the rest of society. If he could just go on enough raids doing this kind of help for the rest of us, think of the crimes that would no longer happen to so many innocent victims of gangbanger police brutality. The Supreme Court said many years ago in a written decision that 1/2 of the serious civil rights violations in this country were committed by government. Now boys and girls who do you think was appealing up the court system against whom? it wasn’t over lunch items at day care. The dangers of a standing army is now at every community with a local station and barracks, i.e. your local fucking pig stye. It takes thousands of hours of TV programming of falsely called “heros”, “life on the line every day” lies for there to not be a massive push back to this level of unprovoked violence we all are threatened with. Those people have so perverted the thinking and seared their conscience that they have a insatiable appetite for violence. Intimidation is their daily mental state which is criminal and cowardly. They do not respond to morals or moral appeals as they are conscious but knowingly took on the mind of a beast. This forecloses morality for their level of existence. This is the communist existence we have in this nation now and it won’t go away till central banking and income tax, public schools, drivers licenses, land taxes are done away with. These are the 5th,2nd,10th,6th and 1st planks of communism. They are all violations of morality and justice. So we get what we pay for.

    What the hell are Bay Area Rapid Transit cops doing in ANYONES home?
    Is it possible the dead cop was not playing along with the crew?

    Too many holes in this one.

  3. It’s a start. Cop on cop shootings should happen more often.

    WOW, many problems with this one.
    1. What in the hell was a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) officer doing going into someone’s home? Does not sound like a “transit” area to me.
    2. They really had no idea who’s home they were entering, or where that person worked?
    3. “The Dublin Police Department, which contracts with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, has taken over the investigation.” Since when did police departments “contract”?

    Can anyone tell me exactly what the hell is going on out there in California?

    • Adam says:

      I’m aware of contracting. Police departments are companies. Not like a sheriff who works directly for the people (supposed to anyway). We have a few small towns that share the interstate within a few miles and one has a much larger police force. They contract with the other town or allow the sharing of their jurisdiction. I don’t know the legal apparatus if there is one that allows it but I’m assuming that they aren’t just pulling it out of the collective asses. COULD BE but I’m guessing no.

      But the whole BART thing is different. It seems that if BART officers were carrying out an investigation of a crime that happened on their property then they would have to work with the jurisdiction of wherever the home was located. As like they would have to have Dublin P.D. with them, or a representative, when they went out to investigate. At the same time if they were just going out there to investigate (i.e. ask questions of a suspect) why did they have their guns drawn in the first place? Instead of “Knock knock. This is the police. We need to ask you a few questions.”

      If they entered the home uninvited I imagine that the one that shot the other better hope they had a warrant to search the home.
