Are you going to post every fight video? How many hundreds of thousands of MARTA rides happen every week without incident? You know, I'm sure if Houston had a train, there would be videos of fights on those, too.

Uh, Houston does have a rail system. It's rather small now, but it does have one, and it does have fights so again, not unique to MARTA.

And these recordings probably only represent 1% of it. I recall to white guys getting close to a fight over whether or not the Grateful Dead was the greatest band ever or not.
What a load. Stay in your little suburban bunker and avoid MARTA at all costs. I'm sure Zaxby's will be grateful for your business.

If you are thinking the MARTA police don't mean business you may not have met Maj. Easterling.

So the Houston police get a thumbs up for showing up but the MARTA police don't? Wow, you really do hate MARTA don't you?

Can you imagine Mathman's opinion if MARTA decided to run a line to Morris Brown?

Um, MARTA already does. Morris Brown is served by the Vince City and possibly Ashby stations.

Not impressed by them. I remember in Seattle, the transit police poured into the train to get a fare-evader. Even in Houston, the police were on the train to get a fare-evader. I saw fare-evasion all the time on MARTA. Seemed strange to be approached by panhandlers on the platforms and trains. Think they paid to get in to ask for money? Don't think so.

So you expect the MARTA police to be omnipresent? Maybe you should try lowering your standards to realistic.
