Two white men physically threw a Hispanic or black teen off of a San Francisco Muni train on Aug. 30 (more video below).
Paul Rose, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, told the San Francisco Examiner there will be an investigation: “This is very disturbing video.”
Anna Sterling, a local journalist who posted videos (recorded by her friend) of the incident on Twitter, wrote:
Whoa these two men just tried to throw this kid off the muni train because he was playing music too loudly. He easily could’ve hit oncoming traffic. That is not okay. [T]hey’re attempting to throw him onto the street. You can see it clearly here. He’s just a kid. This is not okay.
A woman is heard on the video telling the men: “Stop! He’s just a kid, leave him alone!”
A man, who tackled the teen and held him in an armlock, replied, “Tell him to stop. I’m fine stopping, I’ve got no problem.”
The woman fired back: “Over music? Leave him alone.”
The teen responded to the men: “What the f*ck? What the f*ck fool?”
