FANTASTIC IDEA!!!!! A LOT OF TALK AND NO DO FROM THE WHOLE TRIMET CO. I KNOW PERSONALLY A HANDICAP MAN THAT RELIES EXCLUSIVELY ON TRIMET MAX. I BELIEVE IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS MAN IS BEATEN ALSO. VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF LAURIE CHILCOTE. I AM SICK THAT THIS HAPPENED TO HIM. JUST SICK TO MY STOMACH FOR HIM AND ALL OTHERS WHO INNOCENTLY "TRUST" TRIMET....THE PORTLAND TRANSPORTATION MOGUL. HE COULD HAVE DIED AND THOSE THAT WERE INVOLVED WOULD GET WAY TO SMALL OF PUNISHMENT. SUE TRIMET FOR UNSAFE ENVIRONMENTS AND LACK OF PERSONNEL MONITORING THE FREAKS THAT GET ON IT. PLEASE PROCEED. LAURIE WILL NEED MEDICAL CARE AFTER THIS, IF ONLY PSYCHOLOGICAL. THANK YOU

I'm sorry that I'm so cold hearted, but lawsuits against Trimet will only ramp up the price of bus and MAX tickets and other Trimet related expenses. What should really be done is an effort to put permanent law enforcement officers on the cars of the MAX. A price increase for the public transportation system will only result in more people taking their comfortable iCars to work. One man's misadventure should not spell the decline of public transportation availability.
