Dear Portland Police,
Maybe, just maybe, if you feel that stopping the MAX, and bringing in 3 guys in line of sight with semiautomatics, and 7-10 armed cops in bullet proof vests, so that you can pull that guy off the MAX to arrest him.... well, maybe it would make some sense to wait on this whole procedure until I'm not sitting next to the guy on a crowded train. I mean, the thing is, if you think this requires quite so much of an armed response, could you maybe not put me, and my fellow commuters in confrontational danger?
