Emma Anderson was kicked off of the Miami Metrorail train system after she was reprimanded for singing gospel music, yet refused to stop. The 82-year-old was booted off of the public transportation system by a security guard who reportedly wasn’t too gentle in his quest to remove her.

My lady friend is third in command of an armed security company (just below the two owners and a VP). She runs the field...all of them, including all guards plus the loss prevention officers.

I read this to her....and she flat came out of her chair. I said “So what would you do if one of your....”.

That’s as far as I got. Her response.....”I’d beat the snot out of ‘im....THEN fire his sorry a**!!!”

I believe her. She could do it, too.

A modern day Rosa Parks.

Christians should demand a statue built in Washington for her. She's standing up for her first amendment right to religious freedom and the freedom to express it.

I would have done the same , good woman you have there .

This is typical Miami BS though and sadly he most likely will not be fired or reprimanded .

My hubby used to take this train to get back and forth to school before he learned to drive . Groups of thugs used to board it quite often being loud and disruptive and the security guards would all run to another car in the train and say nothing about it . They only pick on the ones they know won’t fight back .

I don’t understand why anyone would actually pay money to vacation in that city because this is typical behavior for both police and security guards in Miami.

Typical S Florida...totally corrupt, no ethics and inhabited by pure scum. Cops are thugs, teachers are obama worshiping gutter whore and with very few exceptions no place is worth living.

I still have rental prop there and go back occasionally and it gets worse every time.

Decent folks are moving out. Its not just Miami but all of S Florida.

There's a choice here ~ we can have 50 stories report with full coverage of the extract, or we can have 20 stories report with just the title.

With the full monty FR slows down and with 20 modestly allowing us faster response.

Unfortunately when you only have 20 titles showing you miss stuff ~ the bandwidth monitors should stick that in their mouth and chew it awhile then get back to us on WHICH IS BEST FOR FR ~ a handful of double listings or everybody tuned full bore slowing us down to getting through as few as 10 threads a day.

I think the answer is obvious, but then I was a math major for a while ~ so I won't hold that over them as they formulate their answers.

Sadly, it doesn’t dawn on this lady that the people who want her silenced are the people she votes for.

That’s what I was thinking. Her son is a very reasonable guy. I don’t think I would be.

Passenger was making a scene.
Passenger was breaking reasonable rules.
Passenger was asked to stop.
Passenger refused, repeatedly.
Passenger was told to exit.
Passenger refused.
Security acted. Passenger exacerbated situation, causing a dangerous fall and injury.
The old lady was the perpetrator.

Flame on!

It's pathetic that you see nothing wrong with a grown man dragging and tossing an 82 year old woman off a train onto a concrete platform . I hope you never get old and lose some of your marbles and someone who thinks like you comes along and tosses you off a train or worse.

I hope you never have a daughter . Someone grown man who thinks like you might come along and think there is nothing wrong with beating her because she didn't act it just the 100% perfect way .

But her singing was a threat. They might have been dangerously offended.
