the video becomes evidence and the public can't see it. something that caught the attention of bart board members is the videos may create racial bias. turns out recorded video from these cameras of the recent rash of teen mob robberies won't be released to the public, bart says it is for a number of reasons. but that led some elected officials, like bart board director, deborah allen, to question, doesn't the public have a right to see the video? here is the response she got from bart assistant general manager, carrie hamill. >> to release the videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary. >> my question to you is what role does the color of one's skin play in divulgeing information? do you hold back information? >> i think the statement speaks for itself, again, the information that we release depends on the circumstances of the investigation and whether releasing a video serves a good trying to solve a crime.
6:06 pm
>> reporter: kpix 5 obtain admemo to board members, where she explained bart won't put out a press release on a most recent theft because it was a "petty crime. and talking about it would make bart look look crime ridden, leading to sweeping generalizations in media reports." as for how she sees the media "my view it is the pursuit of ratings, they know that video of these events will drive clicks to the website and viewers to the programs because people are motivated by fear." >> i think it is an honest discussion, the assistant gm rote the memo, i thing it speaks for themselves, but what we can do with video, we have to abide by state law and have to go with the leadf the bart police investigators.
