shutting down cell services, for thousands

Cell service shutdown San Fransisco Bay Area Rapid Transit, BART shut down cell services in some of its subways, their excuse was ..”it acted carefully, blocking phone calls in just a few subway stations for a few hours to protect public safety and prevent chaos on platforms” …

I don’t know if this is truly a 1st amendment issue or not, as the article does discuss. I do believe its all about controlling communication on a massive scale.

It’s rather ass backwards, the action can cause large protests from people.  oops too bad, there might be a true emergency there will be no way to contact Emergency personal for immediate assistance.
