Interesting that the police

Interesting that the police are asking for videos when at the same time many states have laws prohibiting videos that show police officers on duty. If Mass. is one of these states then any videos would not be admissible in court.....

Today you talked about the

Today you talked about the bombings of yesterday in Boston. I heard the news last night here and it was being said that AS A RESULT OF THIS EVENT, security would be beefed up at sports events AND at the METRO travel locations, etc.

WELL, yesterday morning I rode the METROLINK train into LA from Irvine for the first time! It was so fun, but I wondered as we approached LA, why it was that no one ever checked my ticket and I thought of how easy it would be to just jump on the train anywhere. Just then I saw two fully uniformed Sherrifs checking tickets as they walked through the car. I asked the one, "Do the Sheriffs alway check the tickets?" to which he responded, "Well it's either us or the conductor." !!! This was BEFORE the Bombing in Boston and the Sheriff were seemingly a REGULAR part of the train ride. So, who's signing his paycheck!?!?!?!?!?

THanks for your great work.
