This movie has been edited to comply with the most recent version of the Trimet HR rules, which seem to change whenever somebody makes any sort of complaint, even if the complainant themselves are not party to the actual incident and can make up whatever story they feel like about the alleged incident.
In this movie there is one conversation with a bus operator about the demonstration at Neils house. He knew the camera was filming but he was not participating in any "blogging" activities while driving, we were talking, which is what bus drivers do, or used to do, before hysteria ruled this organization. We are not sure if we are allowed to actually talk to passengers any more since that might be interpreted as "distracted" driving, but I am sure we will find out.

Starting today, all new movies will be in full compliance with the latest, greatest, version of Trimet rules, no images, no sounds, of any person who is using Trimet or employed at Trimet. I myself am still permitted to talk to myself while out in the public and even on duty as of today. That most likely is in the process of being changed as I post this. Soon I will be a little bus driver who drives his bus and just gets in fights with passengers over silly stuff (see dispatch call library) since Trimet allows that as ordinary bus driver duties, but actually talking to or enjoying the passengers that happen to ride our system, or showing the horrible overcrowded system itself, is apparently a violation of the Trimet law and order policy.

What to do now?

Well the grudge filled Marcus Griffith once again has taken over Trimet policy
.
For some reason Trimet management seems to be afraid of this guy  the question is why?

It's bad enough that I have been hamstrung while at work, now I am hamstrung on my on time.

All due to the likes of a propagandist like Marcus Griffith who pretends to be a reporter?

It's incredibly sad that our management has absolutely no backbone to stand up to the likes of him.

My activities are protected under Oregon State law.

Trimet rules and regulations are so confusing and obscured that they basically make no sense and as time goes on they keep changing how they want me to interpret them.

TRIMET, LET ME MAKE THIS EASY FOR YOU, HERE ARE THE NEW RULES, PUT THEM IN YOUR RULE BOOK:

NO EMPLOYEE, ON OR OFF DUTY, MAY MAKE AN AUDIO OR VIDEO PRODUCTION OF ANY TRIMET VEHICLE, PASSENGER,  EMPLOYEE, BUILDING OR ANY OTHER FACILITY WITHOUT GETTING EXPRESS PERMISSION FROM THE TRIMET EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

NOW IT'S CLEAR!

TRIMET RESTRICTS MY FREEDOM-FOR NOW

I have been informed that the Trimet Transit District not only has the right to restrict my activities while at work but also off work!


I am being prevented from engaging in a legally sanctioned activity on my own time, using my own equipment, loading material on my personal website!


As of now I will comply fully with the the management wishes, however I intend to have my attorney look into this and see if removing my freedoms is something they can actually get away with!

DON'T YA LOVE IT!

I am so controversial that I have one person of questionable emotional health running a blog just about me and another wanna be newsman with very questionable credentials    so obsessed by my actions that he actually writes stories about me, a  little bus driver from Portland Oregon.

I would have never believed it in a million years that my stupid obscure blog would generate so much interest by the fringes of society who have nothing better to do but follow my activities on a daily basis!

Neil McFarlane, you got nothing on me! I'm more famous than you it seems!

FREEDOM OF SPEECH/INVASION OF PRIVACY-GET A LIFE MARCUS GRIFFITH

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation, or both. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used!

  •  

   2009 ORS § 163.700¹
Invasion of personal privacy

(1) Except as provided in ORS 163.702 (Exceptions to ORS 163.700), a person commits the crime of invasion of personal privacy if:
(a)(A) The person knowingly makes or records a photograph, motion picture, videotape or other visual recording of another person in a state of nudity without the consent of the person being recorded; and
(B) At the time the visual recording is made or recorded the person being recorded is in a place and circumstances where the person has a reasonable expectation of personal privacy; or
(b)(A) For the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the person, the person is in a location to observe another person in a state of nudity without the consent of the other person; and
(B) The other person is in a place and circumstances where the person has a reasonable expectation of personal privacy.
(2) As used in this section:
(a) "Makes or records a photograph, motion picture, videotape or other visual recording" includes, but is not limited to, making or recording or employing, authorizing, permitting, compelling or inducing another person to make or record a photograph, motion picture, videotape or other visual recording.

(A) Genitals;
(B) Pubic area; or
(C) Female breast below a point immediately above the top of the areola.

(d) "Public view" means that an area can be readily seen and that a person within the area can be distinguished by normal unaided vision when viewed from a public place as defined in ORS 161.015 (General definitions).

If the management were to stoop so low as to fire me for my LEGAL activities while I am not on duty then I promise I will fight it with every single penny I have.  I know that the managers at Trimet are much to intelligent to take the likes of a Marcus Griffith or Ellen F** seriously. Two people with a long history of personal grudges and vendetta's targeted at me!

MARCUS GRIFFITHS CONTINUES HIS OBSESSION WITH ME

Since Mr Griffith is hell bent on finding some way to get me fired, even for my activities off the job, I thought it would be appropriate to re-post and old post about Mr Griffith and his complete lack of any credibility:


MARCUS HAS POSTED ANOTHER ARTICLE IN SOME ON LINE MAGAZINE UP IN WASHINGTON STATE, ITS JUST A REHASH OF THE SAME OLD CRAP ABOUT ME,  EXCEPT NOW HE CALLS ME A "RACIST TRAIN WRECK".
I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU MARCUS, I HAVE BECOME YOUR OBSESSION, GOD KNOWS WHY.
I CAN TELL YOU FOR SURE, I AM NOT WORTH IT. I'M SURE YOU CAN FIND A MORE PRODUCTIVE USE OF YOUR TIME THAN TRYING TO DESTROY A PART TIME BUS DRIVER!

Do I need to illustrate my point further?

RIDING THE SYSTEM WHILE NOT ON DUTY

As many people know, I almost always film transit when I ride!
I AM NOT ON DUTY IN ANY OF THE FILMS WHERE I AM RIDING THE SYSTEM!
Trimet has no right to regulate my activities while I am a FREE CITIZEN IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN!
Apparently Mr. Griffith is under the impression that I have to abide by TRIMET rules 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
I DON'T THINK SO!
Personal grudges have no business being called "news!"
