    Perhaps now they will have 24/7 security at every station and on the trains too.

      this station has officers standing around there Everyday, lol. LA’s finest!

    They don’t already have that? We took the subway during New Years and there was a huge brawl in an entire car around 2:30am. Now I know why no one was worried about being broken up.

      I meant actual physical security, not watching via cameras. Heck i bet the cameras on the trains and stations dont even work anymore.

    The cameras work. I have listened to people speaking over the PA directly to people on train platforms asking them to put out cigarettes, not urinate onto rail tracks, etc. And I see plenty of LASD patrols (incl. w/dogs). Cops can’t be everywhere at all times. The one thing Metro COULD do is finally start locking turnstiles like the BART in San Francisco and have a ZERO-TOLERANCE fare avoidance policy. 99% of the crazy people on buses and trains DO NOT PAY to board.

    For 10 years I have watched daily as the Deputies there lean on the railings, talk to chicks, BS and laugh with each other. Keep laughing, fellas. And have another donut.
