2. Segways to patrol the Subways??
How lazy can you get? Also, shouldn't they have their hands free just in case they need to pull a gun or stop an "evildoer"?

4. Hey, it's LA!!
We do things different.

I just wish our subway system was bigger. It only goes from the south bay area (Long Beach), North Hollywood and Pasadena to downtown. I work near East LA and have the schelp the damn freeway.

5. See how it works folks? they use a plane as a bomb...
shift all police to planes and forget the trains. A train gets bombed, shift all the cops to trains and forget the planes...

what will be next? my prediction, some sort of naval thing.

then they will shift it all to the naval ports and forget the trains...

then the terrorists will use a plane again and on and on it goes.

Barn...door...closed...horse...gone.

11. If they really want to be effective
they should stop being so conspicuous. Today when I was going to catch a bus I saw three cops in orange near the entrance to the train station drinking coffee. If anybody wanted to commit an act of terror and saw that they'd easily know who to avoid and keep their guard up around.

19. I never feel safer when I'm on the subway with
guys with machine guns.

:scared:

If I were the tinfoil hat type, I'd say this is all about getting people to avoid public transportation and buy good old-fashioned gas guzzlers.

Oh, but I'm not.
