Metro customers had a chance to speak their minds last night on the transit agency’s random bag check program, which was enacted last month. Metro says they need the checks to prevent terror attacks, but some passengers say the screenings are intrusive and ineffective and Metro is treating them like criminals. Some customers say they are concerned about the possibility of racial profiling and others say even a slight delay for passengers can mean the difference between making their next train or bus. Members of the Metro Riders’ Advisory Council hosted the public meeting at Metro headquarters.
