Outside of a guy cussing for his supervisor for being late to work for 30 seconds, smooth ride on MARTA today. Kinda shocked how quiet the ride was since I havent rode the train in 3 months.

The best crime prevention is to have a population of of pro-social people. Northern Europe and Eastern Asian are the lowest crime places, without "awareness", "prosecutions", etc.

Homicides are down because trauma care has improved.

Holding people responsible for their behavior- what a concept! I thought that was outlawed in our PC, "feel good" America.

1. pro social people are very much aware, awareness covers much more than.. Don't walk down that street, or leaving your laptop visible in your car.
2. You second point needs a source, but I'll save you the trouble because there isn't one. If that was the case, aggravated assault and attempted murders would be UP, which they are down as well.

Hopefully this will calm down those on here paranoid about MARTA being dangerous and them being mugged, shot , or killed if they even ride it.
SAAN, I see your point about scary white people and their insecurities on the trains, but 10000 Suspensions is very alarming. If Marta had to suspend 10,000 people that says a lot about the current riders of Marta. Maybe the sheltered white people you are referring to have a right to be afraid. Thats a lot of suspensions

Yes because someone who evades paying a fare obviously is going to murder someone next.

Does MARTA have rules against riders using foul language? I was on the train yesterday and these young people were having a loud conversation that involved some very colorful language.

It's really not, though you could maaaaybe get something on the 'basic civility' rule. That said, I don't think it's really worth... well, any kind of effort what so ever. There are bigger issues to take care of, especially this week.

Ride with Respect
