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

Cops are permitted discretion. You can believe whatever you wish - others can tell you that they WERE required to show ID, and in a number of cases, it WAS written down. If I recall properly, Nilet was in such a circumstance. I won't argue with you as to how things work, I can only tell you what I know. DHS *wants* the information. As to whether a particular episode "escalates" to that is up to the situation and circumstances.

But I *can* tell you this ... refusing to cooperate and sitting there citing your "rights" can pretty much guarantee a report. Just like G-2's amongst transit folks, press enough buttons and you DO get to visit the house of pain. :)

I don't want to argue about this though ... my ONLY point in commenting is that back to the original question - I won't blame the train operator for the outcome - they DID what they were told to do, didn't get the backup they were told they were supposed to get and ultimately YOUR issue is improper training of the T/O on this issue and failure of management to back up their instructions with action.

Anything else is irrelevant. Nilet's issue is NOT actually with the T/O, it goes much further up the chain or that T/O would have just moved the train and to HELL with whatever was going on outside their cab. Period.
