    The main reforms needed at Metro cost *nothing*: 1) tell the officers to treat citizens as people, not pre-judged scum, 2) tell the officers to not pull a gun unless someone has a gun pointing at them, and most importantly, 3) tell the officers that they are NOT gods above all others, nor are they above the law, ever!
