MetroLink security is a joke

What a joke, the MetroLink security. Most of the hire-a-cop security and metro ticket checkers don’t care about the passengers.

When I worked at Lambert Airport for the Huntleigh Corporation on the old “A” Concourse Security Checkpoint, 1988 to 1990, I used MetroLink to get back to Illinois and even then the Delmar Loop Metro Station was a joke for security on the platform. Even some of the lighting was very dark and not well lit, I guess to save Metro money. Just maybe the Navy guy who was injured on Friday night, Dec. 11, will get an attorney and file suit against Metro for its lack of security, especially on the trains.
