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

Posted by Terrapin Station on Fri Dec 14 12:06:05 2007, in response to Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O), posted by SelkirkTMO on Fri Dec 14 11:49:01 2007.

None of what you said justifies/excuses enforcing a "rule" via direct confrontation that you have not been told in training is either an actual rule or is something you should enforce via direct confrontation. The fact that the training didn't say NOT to do it is NOT an invitation/justification TO do it. That's the bottom line.

But that said, I do agree that the training probably could be improved. But I get the idea that DHS and the MTA know very well what they are doing, and are purposely conducting the training as such in order to get the employees respond to what they call "suspicious activity" more often than not, thus being overly diligent instead of overly complacent. Same with the public. This of course leads to all the problems that have been noted over the last few years. It could be argued at least semi-well by both sides that are for or against this over-saturation of "see something, say something" stuff (in terms of both employees and the public). But one can say for sure that the public is being deceived over what is being done - that some of this anti-terrorism stuff is just for show and is not actually effective.
