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

Posted by trainsarefun on Fri Dec 14 11:26:07 2007, in response to Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O), posted by Terrapin Station on Fri Dec 14 11:16:01 2007.

From what I have heard about the current anti-terrorism training class, photography is specifically addressed, and at no time is it stated to be prohibited.

Since I haven't been to the training sessions, I can't and won't comment on this.

Ignorance is not an excuse for the law, which is posted on the website, and notice of that is displayed throughout the system. Employees should be no less expected to read it / know it than the riders.

First off, to the extent that you think riders know the law on this, you're way off in right field, possibly beyond the fence.

So no, employees should know the regulations because that's their job.

Secondly, the rules do not allow for all manner of photography. As was explained by a dialogue between NYCT's own Mr. Railman718 and myself, there are in fact permissible restrictions on photography. The real question is what's permissible and what's not.

As for the incident in question, we simply don't have enough information to evaluate it. To the extent that the NYCT employee was drawn into a confrontation with our Mr. Nilet, if any, is probably the main problem for the employee, I think.

One thing I'm confused on, after the employee raised this stink, allegedly over the radio, what ever did come to happen to our "terrorist"? Was he apprehended or searched and seized by police? Does he have any witnesses to any of the acts he's described other than himself?

Beside which, on your and his view of this, why is this nefarious employee not being brought up on disciplinary charges?
