Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O)

Posted by trainsarefun on Thu Dec 13 00:35:49 2007, in response to Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O), posted by Terrapin Station on Thu Dec 13 00:24:39 2007.

The direct order was a bulletin (or the like) from NYCT to the employees that says that if they see suspicious activity, they are to report it to Control. And it says that certain types of photography may be suspicious. It does not say anything about photography being illegal. And it certainly does say anything about confronting or attempting to stop the person from taking photos. It very clearly gives one thing to do: call control. That's it.

OK then, assuming arguendo that your bulletin was promulgated to all concerned, read, and understood (a big assumption as even people who send a memo out to 25 people know....):

In the case of Nilet, isn't that what the engineer did? Arguably with some confrontation, though, on his (revised) account of it.

Less specifically, do you know what instructions train crews were given by their supervisors orally, or what the NYPD tells its officers? Institutional culture can be very complicated, and very tough to overcome.
