Three years ago, I take a couple hours to watch trains, and chose the Metrolink Montebello platform. As a freight starts to ease its way toward me, a LASD squad car comes racing across the parking lot at a pretty high speed. It stops just below the steps to the platform where I'm standing. An officer jumps out of the car, pats his gun butt, and begins to walk directly at me. I stumbled and hemmed and hawed and tried to say... "Just taking a picture of the train..." but I may not have said it exactly like that. The officer just keeps walking to the newspaper machine... then looks back at me and says "What?" I repeated myself. He nodded, put his coin in the slot and bought a newspaper. He then jumped back in his car and tore away.
