Recently, because of the London attacks, the NYPD and MTA police have begun doing random checks of bags and packages in the NY subway system. New York's subways carry about 4.5 million passengers on the average weekday, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The system, the largest in the country, has more than 468 stations, most of which have multiple entrances, and during rush hours the flood of humanity in and out of key stations can be overwhelming.William K. Williams, a 56-year-old Manhattan resident who rides the train every day, said the searches would frustrate New Yorkers."Sometimes you need to get to an appointment, you're running late and a cop stops you to delay you even further? That's going to create a mess," said Williams, who was carrying a briefcase outside the Brooklyn Bridge subway station.
Well, William, how much of a delay and inconvenience will it be if a bomb goes off? Some people just don't get it. How late will you be to your appointment if you are dead? The mentality of some New Yorkers is just surreal. They think they are bulletproof.
Until it happens to them...
