DC’s Little Known Hate Crime


Any person who assaults a Metro transit operator or station manager while on duty may be subject to enhanced penalties under DC Law.

Apparently, the bill (now law) will provide for penalties 50% higher for assaulting a bus operator or station manager. If it occurs in DC, of course. I don’t know if VA or MD have this law too.

As a victim of violent crime, I am leery about differing punishments based on the victim.
