    I was at a railroad crossing the othernight and the train was stopped.....so I got out of my car and decided to bench a little while I was waiting. Well out of no where a dick from the rail company comes up and starts drilling me about taking pics of trains and that its illegal and all that shit. Then he tells me I can either wait for the cops or give him my tag numbers.....reason he couldn't see them cause I was obviously standing in front of them. So I had no way out w/ out him seeing my tags and didn't feel like waiting for the cops...so I left.

    Well my cousin ran in my house telling me there was a railraod cop out front asking questions about my car and where I was........

    What can they even do.....I didn't know even know that it was illegal but the dude said since 911 they have been freaking out about shit like that??/??


    any suggestions or comments...........

    They could get you for trespassing. I never knew it was illegal to take pictures of trains, you should probably do some research on that. If you weren't breaking any laws, file a complaint against that prick.

    And if you're of race, MILK that race card homie.

    they could definitely get me for trespassing since I was actually walking on the tracks......but I didn't think it illegal either to take flics of a train seeing how it is public

    but that nine 11 shit has got everything fucked up.....

    You're probably just going to get cited for trespassing then.

    Don't worry Fuzzy, it doesn't sound like you did anything wrong. He just seems like an asshole on a power trip.

    But just to be safe, i would round up all graffiti related gear at your house and stash it for a quick minute...you never know how for these Napoleon types are willing to fo with shit like this.

    Regardless, this railroad guy sounds like a f'ing idiot....don't stress.
