Bus Safety Is A Concern “It’s really nice down here, I like the buildings and everything. And, I live in Tacoma and have worked here two years. The bus stop on 3rd and James isn’t safe. They need to move it back where it was, and away from the missions.” Be neighborly, pass this alongClick to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Disqus (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

There’s a theme here and I hope people are listening.
Another reasons why the buses probably aren’t safe:
“Imagine you’ve been asked (or offered!) to take drugs from one state to another. How would you do it? Flying would be your absolute worst option. You’d have to keep your cool while going through passenger screening, and pray that your checked cargo (which has all your identifying information attached to it) doesn’t pique the curiosity of luggage screeners. And if your luggage gets lost between Hartsfield-Jackson and O’Hare? There’s no easy answer, I’m afraid. Probably best to kiss your sleeping children goodbye and run for the border.
What about Amtrak? You handle your own luggage, which means it won’t get screened and it won’t leave your sight. While TSA agents now haunt some stations, they don’t subject passengers to searches. But it’s still a formalized mode of transportation. Amtrak takes a lot of information from passengers, even if they pay for their ticket with cash. There are also dogs in some stations. They probably sniff only for bombs, not drugs, but do you really know for sure?”
