Trimet's idiotic answer to its crime problem

Take out the 'art' at Gresham and everything will be OK according the the brain trust that exists at Trimet headquarters. What did they spend on this? $25k I believe. 
Wouldn't it make a tiny bit more sense to actually have some sort of security present at some of the more widely used Transit centers like the one at Gresham? Even 7-11 stores hire 24 hour security guards, 'real' transit cities have 'station agents' keeping an eye on things at major stations including dealing with ticket machine problems, but here in the Trimetlandia, their answer is to take out the fake living room.
 They just don't have a clue.
