I missed my Metrolink train today 9/19/2014 so I drove into North Hollywood to take the Red Line Metro subway into 7th Street.
After passing through the turnstile and going down the escalator, I was greeted by LA County Sheriff’s deputies checking passes.
LA County Sheriff Deputies
Doesn’t seem like a good use of Sheriff’s deputies. I wonder how they feel about it.

I just read an article in the LA Times about Metro and LA Sheriff Deputies. Seems that some deputies think of patrolling the metro to be punishment. I feel for them.
Today at 7th Street Station, I encountered LA Sheriff’s deputies with M4 rifles. I did take a photo of the rifle he held. What are they preparing for ?
