Are they putting extra police out in coordination with the T?
How many kids will get mugged at stations?

Not a complaint about getting test kits out to families - just seeing a likely problem and wondering if anyone is taking preventative measures.

How many kids will get mugged at stations?

I'm guessing zero? What makes you think there's going to be a wave of covid test related muggings?

Spikes in COVID numbers have led to increases in the numbers and types of places requiring shots and or tests - travel, places of assembly.
We're coming up to a holiday week or two where people want to go out or away, and need the shots or (last minute) tests.
Test appointments have been getting tougher to get.
We're seeing reports of stores out of stock on home tests.
We're seeing long lines at the neighborhood free distribution sites.

Do you think we're not going to see some lowlife ripping off BPS kids at Forest Hills Station or someplace, and selling the kits someplace else?

I suppose anything is possible, but yeah this doesn't seem like a high probability event to me. Especially not at the level that would necessitate an increased police presence at T stops. You seem really paranoid.

kids are mugged by other kids, so not for tests.

I misread Wu's tweet. Each student gets one kit, which has two tests in it.

Our kid just came home with hers. We might end up giving it to a neighbor, depending on availability and need, since we do still have half a 2-test kit.
