Wait, sorry: not trainS, I mean T-R-A-I-N. They're installing a security camera on one train.
OH! And also, they're not going to watch the footage in real-time...its just going to be downloaded somewhere.
See, its all part of a pilot program to test this idea on other trains. Only they can't even come close to actually being able to afford this pilot program.
In fact, they can't even afford the FEW FUCKING CAMERAS being used on this one lil mystery train (uhm, they can't tell you WHICH train it will be on bitches, cause otherwise all the subway performers will ONLY be on that train)--someone donated them.
The cool thing is, if someone tries to sue them later for some bullshit slip-n-fall, they *might* be able to go back and look at the footage and not have to pay the mofo a bazillion dollars. So that's kinda nice for the MTA. But if someone is getting raped, or maimed, or murdered on the train late at night, they'll still totally get raped, or maimed, or murdered cause no one is watching the footage in real-time. Cool, right?
Your money at work.
Oh well, its nice to see the cash from the subway fare increases going toward smart programs like these.
(When the fuck does that British dude who's taking over get here?? Sheesh).
