HOUSTON - A new program will place undercover police officers on METRO buses to curb crime, even terrorism, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said Friday. "If you think you're going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame," Jackson Lee said.

The move to monitor and curtail crime on buses and trains is just one component of a much larger initiative called BusSafe - a national pilot program created by a peer advisory group of mass transit police chiefs and security directors, and one which METROs Police Department is adopting to enhance safety on the system.
MPD, Houston Police Department officers and Harris County Precinct 7 Deputy Constables will take part in a synchronized, counter-terrorism exercise on Friday, April 13, focusing on bus routes, bus stops and shelters, and Transit Centers in high traffic areas. The participating agencies will: ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.

Counter-terrorism? Is this what the hell they call it? Don’t buy this bovine feces. This is in response to long entrenched “UDT’s”.
Urban Domestic Terrorists.
“If you think you’re going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready.”
...unless you’re black. Then, go ahead and beat the snot out of whitey! Don’t forget the wallet!!
This very same woman will be the first to scream “RACISM “ when the arrest results are posted .
"As short a time frame as astronauts spent on Mars."
Seriously, WHY do we listen to ANY babble that issues from this woman's cake hole?
With Shelia involved, this is all about WHITE on BLACK perceived crime. Racial rofiling in it’s finest form.
Shortly after Lee gave her press conference the operation went straight into effect.
Houston Free Thinker, Phillip Levine was present at the press conference at the Wheeler Station off 4500 Main and witnessed DHS, and Metro Police question passengers who were exiting buses about their destinations and their reasons for riding the bus. When I arrived at Wheeler I got off the stage and instantly noticed the massive police presence. The police presence consisted of DHS, metro police, HPD, TSA, and Harris county police officers. They were going on to buses searching and stopping people for questions. Apparently Shelia jackson Lee was there pushing for more security like what I was viewing. I asked the TSA agent if there was gonna be a bigger presence of metro or TSA. He said both, Levine said in an email.
Houston already has the TSA and body scanners at both airports, 300 cameras donated from the DHS placed around downtown, and now the American version of the Nazi SS has found its way to the cites bus stations.
How’s concealed carry in houston?
Will such folks be allowed to ride the system or be turned away or have their guns confiscated?
Not from Houston - so I don’t know the laws there.
Hopefully someone from that area can answer your question.
You know she will.
Hopefully, Sheila Jackson will have another article penned shortly after the November election: “And The Bus She Rode Away On”.
After 7:00 pm SJL’s voters take over both the buses and the downtown light rail....when I say take over...I mean TAKE OVER.
Concealed Carry can check their guns at the Station...
why not Federal Marshalls? “Bus Marshalls” ...another Federal jobs Program......
