Public comment at 1/27/11 WMATA board meeting: Pat Elder

My name is Pat Elder and I am a co-founder of the DC Bill of Rights Coalition.

There are serious unintended consequences to your bag search policy.

You are alienating a significant number or riders who feel their constitutional rights are being violated.

I speak for them.

George Mason, the author of the Bill of Rights said, “There is a passion natural to the mind of man, especially a free man, which renders him impatient of restraint.

Impatience is a mild term. I feel threatened.

You are unwittingly helping to create a revolutionary class and with it the disintegration of the order you profess to defend.
