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

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....):

You don't have to assume that. It's possible that some people haven't read it. But eventually everyone will have been cycled through the "anti-terrorism" training course where I believe they are told the same thing: contact control (or a police officer, supervisor, etc).

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

It's the other stuff she did along with it that was wrong.

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.

No idea. But is ignorance an excuse? It's not for us. The rules of the system are posted on the MTA website. The employees should certainly be aware of them. I've never heard any employee say that they were told they could get in trouble if they didn't confront the photographer. All the employee can get in trouble for is not following the bulletin, which says they must contact Control.
