Transit agencies around the U.S. add security following Moscow attacks

U.S. transit agencies beefed up security as a precaution Monday after the double suicide bombing in Moscow's subway system, sending more police into stations and officers to conduct random inspections of rail yards.

 

In New York, caravans of police vehicles were dispatched to transit hubs, and officers assigned to subways overnight were held in place so they overlapped with the day tour. Special units distinguished by their special black uniforms, helmets and body armor also were assigned to transit facilities.

 

In Washington, D.C., Metro police conducted random inspections of stations and rail yards, officials said. Atlanta's public transit system said its police department increased the number of officers and patrols throughout the system.

 

Russian authorities said two women blew themselves up in Moscow on Monday in a subway jam-packed with rush-hour passengers, killing more than 35 people. They blamed the carnage on rebels from the Caucasus region.

I'm completely in favor of adding more armed police officers, but shouldn't they cover ALL of the subway stations? If a suicide bomber were to bomb a popular target, they would obviously get onto a less populated station and then ride the train to that destination. They should place cops on every train station in a targeted city.

DO you know how many stations and exits exist in the system?
