So, according to police only one of these is verified.  It happened   The details on the other one are very murky.

Metro says they don't have video of anything occurring on the platform.  Maybe they just don't know what they are looking for.  They don't say whether they have footage of anyone being near the victim that reported the crime.

And I might have called the police before saying anything to Metro security.  I don't want to call anyone a liar, but this is a strange story.

The second one happened on Sunday night.  Both involved guns.

This story was just reported today.  The article I had been reading before this one was:

Eliminate poverty and see how dramatically the crime drops.  Sure there will still be greedy thugs---the greatest and most successful thugs are entities and people like the I.R.S. and U.S. Government, and the Koch Brothers, and the banking and Wall Street "leaders"--- but all crime that stems from desperation and poverty will disappear.

I will say one thing about public transit, while violent crime may occur around transit, violent criminals rarely use public transit in the commission of crimes.

Bank robbers don't run to catch the 'getaway bus'.
