"Ninety-one percent of people who are arrested for [Metro Rail] fare evasion are people of color,"

This month, the council voted 11 to 2 to decriminalize fare evasion, which now could result in arrest and up to a $300 fine. If it passes a second vote Tuesday, the infraction would be civil, carrying a $50 fine.

Councilmember Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), who is the chairperson of the Public Safety Committee, supports the decriminalization effort.

Allen says the simple fact that fare evasion has always been a crime and has reached near-record levels proves that treating it as a crime is not a deterrent. He suggests that Metro find a way to rebuild the gates to make it harder to evade fares.

Allen says a $2 or $3 fare is not worth giving a young person a criminal record for life. He also points to data that show African Americans are disproportionately arrested for fare evasion on Metro.

"Ninety-one percent of people who are arrested for fare evasion are people of color," Allen said. "So there is a significant racial disparity that is taking place right now. That is not fair and what we are trying to get at is to help change the consequence from this to help match and be more appropriate to that."

So basically this White Knight libtard is saying it's "not fair" that more "people of color" are arrested for fare evasion than others and there should be lesser penalties against it for that reason.

ANd this pertains to Fairfax because, you guessed it, all fare evaders will be able to freely ride west on the Orange, Silver, Blue or Yellow lines to come visit us. No thanky!

OP is a liar trying to bumb rush media with fake representations of the real situation

Fairfax County Gov has long "participated" with "work programs" to take DC implants (because they vote democrat)

I've worked with some of them. They used (free/reduced) bussing to get to fairfax - got the job through the "work program", and of course ended up living in (manasses - where-ever)

ALSO: METRO gives free tickets to "poor democrats" (not to poor white people). OP has a lying article making it look like blacks are being arrested for riding free - the fact is Fx Co Gov is taking money on the backside to reduce DC's welfare cost and give them jobs (AND transportation)

the real situation is old rich white people pay fares only

Targeting Metro fare-cheats with criminal penalties is both pointless and inherently racist. Now, you will still get a summons and a fine, sort of like for parking at an expired meter. But not a criminal record that would haunt you for years.

Can anyone give an example where rewarding bad behavior has has not made a problem worse.

Typical bleeding-heart liberal incapable of setting boundaries. People of color, or should I say, n-words (because we all know the two are not the same) are not stupid. Seems to be a conditioning that if you behave badly enough the libtartds with want to be your friends by enabling said bad behavior. Who are they really helping? Certainly not law-abiding citizens.

Too bad. Tax payers shouldn’t have to subsidize black folk smoking inside their subsidized homes.

On this subject, I’m glad they legalized weed in the the district. I’m glad that some folks with limited options can truly benefit from the underground entrepreneurial cottage industry going on there. I like the model of being able to grow your own vs. getting big corporations involved like other states. If done right and with honest cooperation from the community I honestly believe DC could be a much happier place because everyone deserves to have a job doing something they love. Sorry for going off topic.

Really, a racist asshole? Try again. How about observant prick? That makes more sense, doesn’t it? The old laws weren’t hugely discriminatory they were badly enforced. Big difference. Then, well meaning people (which pretty much defines all enablers) handled the situation with knee-jerk readjustments. Not too worry because as the contracts for public housing come up for renewal the owners will ditch the business of subsidized housing for rich development the first chance they get. Change and adapt or get out of the way. Furthermore, certain council members would sell out their own kind too.

Incoherent babbling unrelated to the point. Fare-evasion as a criminal offense does not make sense from any angle. End of story.

“Suddenly”? Why be a asshole when someone is just trying to have a conversation?

Disadvantaged people come in all races ... why don’t we just be real and drop the race bullshit. Their are disadvantaged people everywhere and most of the time it’s not their fault. What’s missing is leadership and confidence and that get’s lost in political egos and selfishness. There are so many factors, way too many to list here, but that’s a start.

Got anything of substance to contribute?

This. When you want to encourage behavior, you reward it. When you want to discourage behavior, you punish it. What does this policy do?

What's even more absurd is that most of these dumb niggers already get FREE METRO CARDS simply by virtue of being a DCPS inmate - er - "student." They choose not to use them, preferring to break the law as yet another means to be as anti-social as possible. Not only are these animals incapable of being productive members of a civilized society, they are ANTITHETICAL to the very idea of a civilized society.

But this is good news for the working white class that props up this sham of a city - you don't have to pay for the Metro anymore! Just jump the gate like the niggers do - they'll be no consequences. If you get caught, who cares? Don't pay the fine, which is what all these niggers will do.

I only ride that TB incubator when I have to, but I know you have to have a farecard to get off.

Can the fare jumpers just say "I lost my card" and get out in Virginia or do they have to jump the turnstiles here too?

The number one Metro station for apprehensions due to attempted fare evasion is Yuppie Central -- Gallery Place. And nobody in DC jumps the turnstile. That's an NYC thing. Here, you just quietly walk though the emergency gate. Only recently have any of those been locked by default.

More reasons to never use metro. Thank the Lord I don't have to use it. Funny though. I am glad it 's being built out to the west.

It has increased my real estate values. Now I can make bank and retire and get the hell out of this shit hole area. Please keep quiet about bad things on metro. It could hurt real estate values. At least until next summer. By then I will be long gone from here and laughing at you poor assholes that are still stuck here. Can't wait to locate to a less diversified area with less crime and less illegal alien leeches sucking down hard earned tax dollars. If enough of my kind of hard working taxpayers leave. This area will collapse with the weight of people taking and not giving back.

Stupid DC Council and ACLU, most of the far evaders or Nogs that have no respect for anything! It is just going to encourage more fare evaders and more out of control Nogs on the Nog Hauler. Anywhere nice the Metro Trains run will be ruined by the Nogs. A repeat of Glen Echo Amusement Park, the Nogs killed it just like Wild World/Six Flags, lived here ALL my life and will never set foot in Six Flags or MGM in PG County.

At least now they can fire all the "Station Managers" that make between $150-$250k per year while they sleep on the job. No need for these clowns, this should offset the lost revenue.

The report comes as the D.C. Council voted 10-2 to decriminalize Metro fare evasion -- previously, violators faced possible jail time and a fine of up to $300, but now the penalty would be just a $50 fine. Critics say this will encourage more abuse of a system that is badly in need of paying riders, while proponents argue that the law disproportionately targets the poor and people of color.

$35 for a barely as a high school education, a crappy attitude, sleeping on the job with Union protection and lifetime care and feeding unit they push up daisies.

Due to holidays, overtime, seniority these clowns easily make upper 6 figures playing the system and are typically totally put out when when they had paper cards and you needed help. Luckily with the new electronic fare cards you rarely need to get assistance with anything.

Let's follow this logically to the end. If these people are avoiding the fare, why would you fine them? They aren't going to pay that either. Keeping track of the fines they owe is just throwing good money after bad. So, people that don't want to pay the fare shouldn't. But if some people pay their fare, then the ones that don't pay might feel bad. So no one should have to pay. But how do we fund Metro? Amazon is coming here, we can just create a special Amazon tax to pay for Metro. Problem solved.

OK. But since we are not plopping down next to you on the Orange Line, can we have our taxes back that pay for those six-figure metro welfare jobs? TIA!

I assume that once they rack up enough unpaid fines, there will be a warrant issued for their arrest. Next time they make contact the police - and they will, as they are antisocial and constantly committing crimes - they'll be arrested. This is the true idiocy of this policy - they are STILL going to be arrested for fair evasion, only not immediately. If this is not the case, then there's no point to charging a fare to use the Metro, as there will be zero consequences for not paying it.

NYC of course has the same sort of problem. There, instead of decriminalizing fare-evasion, prosecutors simply don't take the cases to court. At least the DC Council has faced up to the situation.

Not a response, dummy, but repetition for emphasis. I guess you're just too much of a whacked out dumbfuck to spot that difference on your own. That further underscores the point that even if you right-wing dopes weren’t such dopes, people still wouldn’t pay any attention to you.

You assume incorrectly. The DC attorney's office has already made in clear that they have neither the budget nor the inclination to prosecute folks for not paying these petty fines. WJLA 7 reported this before the council even held their vote. No warrants will issue; no prosecutions will ensue.

You’re hitting “reply” which is a response. Even dumb shits know that. You’re obviously dumber than a dumb shit. You’re further assumption that I’m a right-wing dope further demonstrates just how morbidly stupid you are. There’s been no evidence presented to accurately gauge which side of the aisle I’m on. Simply pointing out that you’re so stupid as to know when you’re getting trolled by right wingers is not a political position. It’s just pointing out the fact that you’re as stupid as they come.

Not surprising. DC is going to go after people who can pay. That means parking tickets, red light violators, speeding. You can't get blood from a stone.

It's a misdemeanor, not a felony.

Was it really being enforced to begin with? Would appear that the fare evaders didn’t really care about the consequences in the first place.

Incidents of fare evasion enforcement rose from 4,000 in 2013 to 15,000 in 2017. This coincided with a period of revenue shortfalls thanks to stingy local jurisdictions.

They are ALWAYS going to go after folks in Maryland and especially Virginia as much as possible. That was the entire point of the parking tickets and red light camera fines being so draconian: they (correctly) believed that these would be disproportionately imposed on non-DC residents. Remember, 20-25 years ago they wanted to impose a commuter tax, but Congress put the kibosh on that. They still dream to do that - and THAT has always been the real objective of DC Statehood. Anyway, once too many of their poor disadvantaged DC residents started getting caught on the red light cameras, they reduced the fines. If all the fare jumpers getting caught in DC were evil white devils from Virginia, not only would they have not have decriminalized it, they would have increased the punishment and tripled the fines. Count on it.

Because it works. And libtards ensure it continues to work.

It's like you intentionally shoplifting something valuable and when caught you just tell them you forgot to pay for it...and they let you go without even paying for it after you've been caught. When you are saying it you are thinking "holy shit there's no fucking way they are going to fall for this bullshit" and then they do. And then you do it all the time. Every time.

i was listening to Plant and heard:


DC CITY COUNCIL / WATMA (Wash Metro Athority - "metro") approved code that hopping metro fare

IS NO LONGER ILLEGAL

NO LONGER ILLEGAL, REASONED, BECAUSE IT WOULD EFFECT MOSTLY BLACKS NOT WHITES
