The proceedings grew rowdy last night at the Brooklyn Museum as four people were arrested at the MTA hearing in the County of Kings last night. Police had to remove these people — assumed to be students — from the auditorium last night when they jumped the line at the podium and refused to cede ground to those waiting to speak.
Meanwhile, news reports say hundreds of people attended hearings in the Bronx and Brooklyn last night, and as you can imagine, the grandstanding politicians were at it again. Assembly rep Vanessa Gibson joined the chorus of elected officials who decided to blame the MTA for her own personal inability to lead and govern in Albany. It’s too bad these people getting arrested can’t direct their passion and ire toward Gibson and her ilk — those politicians who are able to skip the line and speak before everyone else does. With a vehement public urging them on, Albany would finally have the impetus to approve the policies and ensure the money the MTA so badly needs.
