Artists are often on the frontlines of gentrification, moving into lower-income neighborhoods, making those neighborhoods more appealing to outsiders, and soon enough, being priced out themselves.

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.
