The article doesn't state where or when the crime increase is or by even just how much. I have a feeling these crimes occur in late hour operations, and not likely in downtown through Clayton and south of there. You do know that Metro goes through some pretty rough areas, don't you? I'd heard long ago not to ride the Metro late at night north of Delmar and haven't...and wouldn't. I've ridden Metro many times and feel safe. Really, no different than any other big city's public transportation. You simply have to use common sense. So...why hasn't some genius come up with idea of cameras on Metro...? If you pay close attention to our local media it seems they concentrate on all the crime in the city, placing some incidents "close" to popular areas (when they aren't) in the city, and like this report most probably is, as a blanket statement. Yet I know people who live in one of St. Louis' "safest" and most desirable upper middle class suburbs that were witness to a very violent crime...that was never reported on the news.
