Any one who thinks that this can't or won't happen here is a total moron. It is only a matter of time before the subway is attacked. Having a very visible police presence will deter some and really that is all we can hope for since we are fighting an enemy that is more determined to kill us then anything.

Hit city subways after Russia terror

Stand clear of the submachine guns.

 

In an unusual move, a heavily armed NYPD security battalion with enough firepower to wipe out Downtown Brooklyn descended onto the city's subway trains yesterday in response to suicide bombings in Russia that killed dozens of passengers in Moscow's subway.

 

Bleary-eyed New Yorkers began their work weeks with a morning rush hour that featured city cops in full military gear, including helmets, goggles, body armor, sidearms and M16 assault rifles.

 

The underground arsenal startled sleepy straphangers, many of whom wondered whether the extra security was overkill.

Well we all know that in a post 9-11 world, almost anything is capable. But can it be prevented though? We look at those who were attacked and as unfortunate as it is for them, we basically take their slip-ups into account and we learn from them to try and ensure the highest level of safety in our system.

And hopefully, they don't put a bullet right through a railfan for photography.

 

They really can't; they are only authorized to shoot at someone if the perp themself has a weapon as well.
