I suppose everyone in the military enjoys killing people too.

Re: Do not buy and sell tokens to your teammates in Atlanta

That's enough, guys. Let's show some respect to those who risk their lives to protect us, even if we don't agree with everything they do.

Let's not go into another agrument that will make everyone look foolish and stick with the original topic.

This is the website for the Atlanta Police Department as well as the "Police Information" phone number. I would suggest that any team concerned by a potential situation ask the people who know the answers and correct procedures.

It's easy to get worked up over what is probably a simple issue with a simple solution - let's take it easy. Hope it helps.

Re: Do not buy and sell tokens to your teammates in Atlanta

Ultimately, this comes down to two things:

1. The guy arrested was probably just trying to be a good person and was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunate, but life.

2. Police have the right to arrest anyone that they have reason to belive is breaking a law that they are meant to enforce. When you get let off by an officer, they're using their best judgement to realize that that law you just broke is irrelevant in the current situation, or is bad for the common good.


An example would be the recent incident in Miami where a passenger was shot by an Air Marshall. He was probably an idiot who got too riled up, but when he ran, the officer was completely in the clear to shoot him. In the public's moral eye, he got a bad break, which we automatically attribute to unfairness. It wasn't unfair, just unlucky. (I'm not saying the subway guy was a terrorist, just drawing an example). Thats why bums can sell tickets all day long, but a helpful guy who does it unknowingly once gets nailed.

And then there's corruption of law, a far too delicate subject for uninformed people to yell about over the internet. We don't want "The Flame Heard 'Round the World"...

Actually that is for the city of Atlanta police who are unaffiliated with the MARTA police which are a seperate force.

Re: Do not buy and sell tokens to your teammates in Atlanta

I have since read that the state is working on changing this law so something like this won't happen again.
