$9 Million Federal Tax Dollars For On-Board Public Transit Spying

Is this how you want your Federal tax dollars spent…in Roswell, Georgia’s buses or even any place you don’t live? Are there terrorists on buses in Roswell? I doubt it. More like druggies, drunks and purse thieves. What happened to all the DHS money that was going to pay for Federal Bus Marshals (another waste)?

“MARTA is dedicated to ensuring that all reasonable measures are taken to secure the safety of customers and employees,” said MARTA Police Chief Wanda Dunham. “We are confident that this investment will provide an additional layer of protection and will act as a highly visible deterrent against operator assaults, crime and acts of terror.”

The Vehicle Security Camera System (VSCS) will capture and store images, audio and vehicle data that can help MARTA Police investigate crimes and which could prove useful in resolving customer complaints and settling accident claims.
