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

Posted by trainsarefun on Fri Dec 14 13:25:07 2007, in response to Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O), posted by SelkirkTMO on Fri Dec 14 13:02:12 2007.

T/O didn't want to piss of the geese by doing what they were told to do in the event a photog failed to "cease and desist" ... namely taking the train out of service, inconveniencing the customers and having to spend hellweek amongst the beakies. She apparently contacted command, didn't GET a response, felt endangered based upon her training, got NO support as expected and was left alone to deal with something that she never expected to be left to deal with alone.

This was, for me, the most confusing part of Nilet's account.

How often is it the case that supervision is contacted about a possibly dangerous situation and simply never heard from?

The trouble is that in my experience most of what I've observed doesn't remotely bear on this sort of incident, e.g., most often actually it's about receiving the wrong lineup or just getting stuck at the red signal for a too long time, and in those cases, even though sometimes the same or another wrong lineup is given (I've seen that, alas, happen multiple times at 59th St and DeKalb), I've never had occasion to observe talk about unsafe conditions caused by riders.

(A few times on LIRR, but again, that was about persons on electrified tracks, and it would be damned peculiar to receive no guidance on that).

So on this, I'll defer to NYCT employees for their experiences.
