Get ready for the search

With random searches beginning to happen on the New York Subway, DC Metro officials are thinking about bag searches for our own metro. You want to drive ridership down? Go right for it, Metro. No one wants to subject themselves to full on purse search just to ride the fucking public transit system for a dollar. You want to increase gridlock, pay off more psycho taxi drivers, and generally make DC a more frustrating place to live, you go right for it.

This is the kind of crap that drives people to the suburbs, Metro, and they’re going to stay off your rail lines if it means carrying less or having to let the surly Metro employees, you remember, the ones who arrested a 12 year old girl, and the ones who accosted a pregnant woman, and especially the station manager who was up on assault charges, do personal searches.
