We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
Guest Host: Michael Schaffer
Up until this week, Metro’s policy was to keep quiet about specific incidents unless there was a suspect at large they needed help finding. This meant that when the alleged perpetrator of a rape in broad daylight on a Red Line train last month was apprehended later that day, Metro Transit Police chose not to make a statement. Does the public deserve to know about all incidents like this one? And is Metro alone in keeping quiet about crime under their watch? We discuss harassment and transparency on the region’s transit system.
