As I already stated, it wasn't loud.

Must have, not must of.

Perhaps the conductor walked into the car, or the person with the music was standing closest to the conductor's station at the end of the car.

I get why music is not allowed. I don't get how people get so soulless that they would complain about Stevie Wonder.

People were enjoying the music, and the jeers were audible and plentiful when the conductor laid down the hammer.
This is good, really really good. I don't care if it's my favorite song in the world, it is rude as hell to subject other people to the music you want to listen to. People that do that are so insanely self centered. To me, it's a benchmark of a human's decency like littering.

If the world was suddenly void of everyone who littered, played their music out loud in a confined public place, or other similar selfish acts it would be a much better place. So kudos to MARTA for making MARTA a much better place

It could be my favorite song they are blaring, but if I am not in the mood to listen to music I would still report it. It is just disrespectful to other passengers.

I agree. If people want people to hear the music they want to play I recommend them becoming a DJ

Why not install a facial recognition system with all those cameras available?

That'd be cool and we know they have that capability since they use it on casinos. They may have to if crime escalates. For now, due to the privacy watchdogs, don't expect it.

I did find this article a few years ago about computerized behavior analysis, not sure how's it's panned out.

Having the MARTA conductor do anything would be a neat trick since MARTA doesn't have conductors...

Sure it does. How else do you get power off the 3rd rail?
