MTA polizei and musicians

Is the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority becoming the New York City Metropolitan Terrorizer Association? Can someone remove all of the NYC MTA polizei from the subway system? Can the NYC MTA just make its subway fares free? Can the MTA free its riders and its subway musicians from its system of harrassment? And those "If you see something say something" messages and random bag searches are a terrorize the people campaign in itself. Yesterday I learned that now I should attend this Saturdays April 14th Earth Day event, the National Day of Climate action, http://stepitup2007.org just to help protect my friends saxophone in case the MTA polizei policy issue my friends a summons for playing their music in the subway. The National Day of Climate Action will be rallies and gatherings across the country to call for action on global warming and climate change and MUNY joins the National Day of Climate Action in a marathon concert at Times Square from 10am to 6pm, celebrating mass transit as a major solution to reducing carbon emissions and I should be there to help save their horns from becoming a New York City subway statistic. Since when did my job become horn saver? My friend Welf, from the Underground Horns , a brass band, performs with "Drumadics", drummers. They have been playing their music in scheduled weekly performances as part of the MTA Arts for Transit/Music Under New York, http://mta.info/mta/aft series . Their music is fun and spiritual. And there is this policy officerial who keeps shutting them down with his volumnmeter who has now threatened to issue them a summons the next time they show up to play which would be this Saturday as part of the April 14th Earth Day Event at the Times Square subway station. So what does one do? Maybe subway musicians get complaints and get tossed out of the subway all of the time. Can one not tolerate art? What ever happened to freedom of speech? Since when did art and music in public spaces become a crime?
For more information about these musicians, you can view the Underground Horns YouTube video at http://concretebeat.blogspot.com , and the Drumadics page at http://myspace.com/drumadics .
And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Happy Earth Day. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

Digg!

One of my fav blogs is of a NYC subway musician - www.SawLady.com/blog - sometimes she talks about how the police bullies musicians in the subway in stead of attending to real important things.

I see this guy Theo Eastwind
all the time for years now,
last wed. i saw some cop give him a ticket, for no reason at all!!!
Theo tried showing him the rules where it says you are allowed to play in the subway but the cop just
cut him off and kept saying "i make the rules here"..what a joke!!
