    for young adults with developmental disabilities.  The school district and Tri Met (who runs our public transportation from buses to the train) provides the students with bus/train passes which they wear around their neck along with their student ID.

    It's the same price as an "honored citizen" pass - which is for the old and disabled.

    So he got a ticket for having a student pass and not an honored citizen pass.  Which is bullshit.  Of course the boy couldn't explain it too well since he's autistic and low-verbal - although he did show him his student ID which accounts for the student pass.

    Just last week the same boy rode with a Tri Met Trainer on how to ride the Max to the work site.  Which is where I met up with them and he showed me the ticket so I found a cob on the concourse and asked him "WTF?"  

    The school district provides these passes because these young adults (18 - 21) are students.  

    Was just a pig giving an autistic, barely verbal young guy a hard time.  He was scared to death and I'm glad the other cop saw how this impacted him.
