    NPR just said that theyre only doing certain entrances, and you can just walk to the next stop. Now Im accross the country, so I dont know. But if I was worried about them finding my paint or other things etc etc, this would be a stratagy I would look into. I'd like to hear from some folks in NY, have you been searched yet?

    WELCOME TO THE POLICE STATE.
    The london bombings were staged to get the PATRIOT ACT through easily and to see how many more freddoms were are willing to volunteer in the name of SAFETY.

    biometric IDs, house searches, it is all coming.

    Yeah, I'm just wondering if people think when actually applied if this policy makes sense as a way to deter specific terrorism or if its a just a huge waste of time that invades your personal space and privacy?..thoughts anyone?

    i think its more just them quickly opening large bags to make sure there isn't a large explosive in it. If i had to guess they aren't going to bother going through small bags, or different sections in bags. Also, i don't know what the deal is on them being able to charge you for something like paint or drugs if they happen to find it. Regardless, they're not going to be searching that many people and it will probably be at peak traffic times, so you don't need to worry about them busting you for something petty like spray paint or whatever else illegal you happen to be carrying as long as it isn't some sort of large dangerous weapon or explosive.

    and honestly, if it prevents another terrorist attack.. searching suspicious bags is a good idea. the problem comes in when police abuse the power and start searching people just to be dicks.

    I would expect any young, brownskinned male with a backpack to have an encounter with the cops upon using public transportation. Anyone even vaguely Indian looking under 30 will get shit when this happens. They may stop a few others to make it look good
