i saw something on the gold line yesterday that was funny — a sheriff got on at one of the stops, and started walking towards the front of the car (where he turned around and started checking tickets). as he was walking up to the front, a guy hopped out of his seat right after he passed by, and ran out of the train.

it cracked up all of the passengers that saw him take off, and what made it a little bit funnier is that the guy looked perfectly normal, even respectable. the two skate punks who took his seat looked more like the type you would expect to be riding without a ticket.


don't you think it's your civic duty to chase those who defraud the public transportation system? so many people worked so hard to get that system built in the first place! it's a slap in the face to all the hard working people who pay their fares. it's also a slap in the face to the average working class tax paying stiff. all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good trained monkeys to do nothing.

It's fascinating to me how few people you see caught for fare evasion in the times they do check. I'm sure there's a small minority that do so and get away with it, but at most I've seen one person in a car of forty or fifty people get caught cheating the system. -e;
