    The Blue Line is a train – not a bus.

        well there was that metrolink guy that was texting a few years back. but i am sick to death of seeing cops breaking the law for no reason except because they can.

      I see regular people breaking traffic laws EVERY SINGLE DAY. Speeding, rolling stops, talking on the cell, texting, running red lights, no signal for lane changes, car pool with one person. What’s your point?

    Actually, the officer was responding to a “man with a gun” (brandished at a victim) call in that area, and was backing up a unit that was about to make contact with the suspect. A Mac-10 machine pistol was recovered, and a suspect was arrested. So much for “a small fight”. Geez. Know your facts.

    They were after some school kids who broke the law.
    I hope the officer & the others are ok.
