  • Wake up MTA

    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!

  • Brandon Lee

    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.

    • Wake up MTA

      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.
