Episode Notes

Do authorities have a right to shut down cell phone service in the wake of flash-mob protests?  Case in point: Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), after a confrontation in San Francisco’s Civic Center station, sparking protests.  Claiming public safety and fear of more protests, BART recently closed various San Francisco stations and disabled wireless reception, enraging passengers.
