OK Eonwe I can understand your objection and will try to explain ONCE.
1st I was a little agitated when I came to the pit, some of that came though in my post.
I take the LIRR quite often, not daily, but maybe 2x/week avg. I have seen many incidents and from observation know the LIRR SOP for such incidnets. I don’t feel that a conductor instigated incident could have the cooperation of the entire train crew, along w/ possilbe police that sometime ride the train. I withdraw calling Biggirl a liar, but thing she is either somewhat exagerating or did not get the full story (though she may fully believe she did).
Do we automaticaly assume any incident is racist because of differing skin colors between the parties? Racism had to do with intent, with geting into someones mind, I do not beleive Biggirl has tha qualification, nor did she post anything that the conductor said that would lead to that conclusion, in short as far as I can see she is assuming facts not in evidence, or in laymans terms pulling it out of her donkey. Also such charges of rasism, sexism are thrown around so casually (in such manner as here) as to actually diminsh the arugment, and to further degrade the terms.
No direct opposite, I do not not know Biggirl though she seems to be a long time poster here. Actually most of my 1st post I wrote before I saw the racist part of the OP, as I was skimming and wondering how she would get a $5 service charge. When I re-read the OP, I did some editing, but my origional impressiong was without knowing who Biggirl is
or knowing that she was accusing rasism.
I would like that man would not judge the mind of another man for the purpose of intensifing the crime (such things as being mercyful to the mentally disabled are OK). No man can truly understand the mind of another, if a crime is commited then punish him. Would it be any worse if this conductor did this to any other race (including his own)? I say that the punshment for such actions (if it were as Biggirl states) should be the same regardless of race. Perhaps you can tell me why the conductor should get only one arm chopper off is it were a ‘green’ person but both if it were a ‘blue’ person? Isn;t this the very definition of racism?
The observer has been somewhat inconsistant to not only fairs (and the LIRR do anounce the extra service charge at nasium over the PA, along w/ the “clean train campain” - which I assume just means that the conductors will continously remind us to pick up our own trash, and cell phone ettiquite) but to the way the LIRR works when there is a disruption. If the observer has stated thing that I see as inconsistant, do I have to think her statement valid? WTF!?!? or can I point out this inconsistansies and ask for clarification or more information?
