Grrrrrrreat. According to WABC online, Amtrak has changed its passenger policy to include random (yeah, right) checks “in a new security push that includes officers with automatic weapons and bomb-sniffing dogs patrolling platforms and trains.”
Basically, that means that employees will have the power to “temporarily detain” anyone they want for whatever length they like under the guise of “random checks.”
I thought I knew you, Amtrak. And here I find that you’re just like all the rest.
