I was going through Forest Hill station one day

around 3PM. Obviously, a bad time with all the HS kids. Bear in mind, I'm a responsible adult male. As I approached the gates, I heard a man screaming at me, turned around, and saw a stone faced transit officer. He came up to me, demanded to see my ticket, pulled it out of my hand, scrutinized it, gave it back with a glaring face. I proceeded through the gates. Next time I saw this officer was on the news. He is today the head of the transit police. 100% true story.

Funny you should put it that way. He was far from the best choice for the job, but, he was ‘the right face for the job’ as someone involved put it. True story.

So rare that they actually get convicted! I see it happening at Dudley all the time. Good on them for finally serving justice.

Who hired the consultant and did the MBTA provide the DA with a copy of the report. How many more passengers were beaten and who trained them to beat passengers with clubs. Charlie Baker this is your goon squad so please conduct a full investigation and fire some and indict others.

The T is run by a GM appointed by the governor. As I love to point out to the political other side, For 19 of the past 27 years, a Republican has been governor. To say the least, party has nothing to do with anything in this situation.

Democrats and Republicans Are The Same!

Except two posts ago when you specifically singled out one of them. Turns out this issue has very little to do with Democrats, time to move the goalposts.
