PATCO reveals its inner Stalin

Do you ride the Philly-area PATCO line? If so, you might want to wear loose clothing.

Commuters who ride PATCO trains between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia should expect random searches of their clothing, pockets, bags and vehicles on their morning trip to work.

Twelve Transportation Security Administration screeners, armed with an explosive-sniffing K-9, checked 663 commuter bags randomly selected from the morning rush at the Lindenwold station Tuesday.

Wait til you get a load of the ‘tude on the DRPA police chief:

“We can conduct any kind of search we want,” said McClintock. “We could ask TSA to bring wands or X-ray machines like they have in airports, though we don’t think that’s appropriate for PATCO riders at this time.”

Probably not the kind of attitude you want to display, considering the amount of (negative) attention the Delaware River Port Authority has been getting lately.
