More musings on


It occurred to me this afternoon that a transportation district can have it's own security, and the police are heavily involved in Metro's honor system.  Instead of having turnstiles and tokens, they let the police write tickets when the honor system is checked. (In my experience, the more black men on the Metrolink, the more likely it is to get inspected for ticket dodgers.)

It seems pretty likely that the Loop Transportation District Security and local police will be used to eject anyone "undesirable" from the Loop.

It's not about a trolley, it's about control for profit.  Profit for the "Local 1%"
