BART cops: Bad. Metrolink: Good?

Well, the Meyers Nave report (PDF) on the Jan. 1 BART police shooting of unarmed passenger Oscar Grant was released this week, and it’s well-written, clear and thoroughly critical.

The Queen has heard that the transit police on Metrolink in Los Angeles have never shot a passenger to death (admittedly, this is setting the bar rather low) and aren’t paid as much as BART police. It’s interesting to hear about transit police in other cities as a way of evaluating where BART police stand.
