Dori: The Sound Transit rolling drug den

Video shared with The Dori Monson Show by a Sound Transit worker is not recommended for the squeamish or already angry listeners. But it is an example of your tax dollars at work.
Images recorded by a ST employee last week show the No. 4 train on a morning route. Onboard: a series of apparently homeless drug addicts, riding the train while smoking various drugs or passed out across the seats.
“Unfortunately, this isn’t an anomaly,” the source wrote to Dori. “Regardless of what time, day or night, as all the trains are a consistent rolling homeless shelter and s*** show.”
A Sound Transit employee took a shocking video that shows approximately 30 homeless people using light rail as a homeless shelter. Why is this happening? Sound Transit’s response will anger you.

Meanwhile, listeners are emailing Dori and texting him their own stories about drug-addled vagrants on light-rail trains and buses. Listeners routinely report seeing addicts urinate, defecate and vomit while onboard.
The problem is only getting worse, Dori told listeners, because the Sound Transit Board has voted to back off fare collection enforcement. Asking people to pay for ridership is racist, board members have decided.
Here is what Dori’s source told him about the video:
“(Train No. 4) pulls out of the OMF (Operations and Maintenance Facility) out of service up to UW station. It then goes in-service southbound from UW. Many of these fine people get on from UW to Sodo as it’s the first southbound in the morning.
I sent this video along with an email to ST Board this morning. I don’t expect a response until next week, if at all. I will let you know if I do. . .
Security and King County Sheriffs can’t and really don’t do anything due to the political policies, you are well aware of.”
