It's a start

The D.C. chapter of the Guardian Angels, a citizen safety watchdog group, says that members will start patrolling Metro's green line three nights a week. This comes after a large fight broke out at a station over the weekend, injuring four people.
The fight of which they speak is the one I was snorting about a few days ago.

This is the sort of community responsibility that I noted was lacking; now we have some brave souls who are willing to put their time and neck on the line to ensure there is safety on the Metro. It's a pity that they are denied the legal force necessary to prevent anything other than some teenage fisticuffs, but it does show an overt act of courage. Perhaps even more so that they are unarmed.
