Follow-up on letter to CTA on the wankers
The answer is yes I got a response, and the best they could do is focus on the problem as the New York police did.
First, the response. Greg Longini, CTA board secretary, wrote this response early Monday morning upon receipt of the email:
"Kevin, thank for alerting us once again to this ongoing problem that has seemed to haunt us for years here. I didn't know about New York's success, maybe we can learn from them and do something worthwhile. I'll make sure everybody sees this. - Greg"
So that's something the CTA surely can do. Learn from New York police. And make sure the powers-that be know about the problem.
But Tony was right. We can't be complacent. We must report these incidents to police and the CTA. Use your cell phone cameras to get their photos. Share them with police. Email the photo to me and I will post it here and make sure teh cops and CTA get it.
Don't give up. We'll get these bastards.
