NJ Mass Transit Passengers To Undergo Random Searches


NBC New | July 25, 2005

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Transit police will start making random searches today of baggage and packages carried by bus and rail passengers.

People who refuse to consent to the searches won't be allowed to ride NJ Transit buses and trains, as well as the PATH light rail to New York. But police can't detain them solely for refusing.

The inspections are being done in response to two waves of bombings in London this month. State officials say there's been no specific threat about attacks in New Jersey.

Authorities pledge the searches will be done randomly to prevent racial and ethnic profiling. But the American Civil Liberties Union maintains the searches were unconstitutional.
