Taser Used on Fare Jumpers

Vancouver transit police have been using tasers on some passengers who do not pay their fares. Some liberal types (I call them bleeding hearted liberals) find this very offensive.

Key point – only those that resist officer’s requests to leave or subject themselves to receipt of a ticket are potentially subject to this process.

I ride the GO system in the GTA area of Toronto, and the trains here use a similar honour system. I have had more than one conversation with the GO Transit cops and it is amazing what ordinary citizens will do to avoid paying for their ride. In many cases these are people with good jobs.

Don’t feel sorry for cheaters. If you want to avoid penalties, don’t break the rules. If you break the rules and get caught, then be mature enough to accept the published penalties.
