What does the forum think about having the transit equivalent of the DID Downtown Mpls helpers on the trains? They can clean up, given directions, and be a set of eyes to work with the transit police? They'll be cheaper than extra officers. Also for high crime areas why don't they just hire security? I lived next to the Lake St Station and the police would sit in a squad under the station or etc.

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

Someone was shot on a C-Line bus as it at the station near the Target Center. I've seen other incidents at this stop before. This is one of those unnerving events, it wasn't that late at night and right in front of a lot of people and bus cameras. This doesn't help the perception of transit. Law enforcement needs to also adjust to the new era of gun violence where things are more based off of social media drama and gangs are less organized. A recent Strib article stated that gang members used to have to get permission to shoot someone, now with less hierarchy they dont.

Woman kicked in the head by teens at a green line stop in St Paul. Suspects aren't in custody. Lady didn't report the crime, the suspects appear to have posted it to their own social media...
Full video is disturbing.
