Two fires at the same time at Federal City Southwest. Just two days before that there was a massive food fight at Gallery Place. One day before that six teenage girls were involved in a fight and when Metro Transit Police came you would think they would have stopped fighting. But they kept at it until police broke it up! In addition to this type of violence, more and more bus drivers are being assaulted.

In order for Metro’s new general manager to do a complete overhaul, me must first figure out how to keep riders safe! And that should be Metro’s priority.
