Police Looking For Suspects Accused Of Chaining Open Subway Doors For Free Rides
" NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are trying to find several members of Occupy Wall Street who they say tampered with doors in the subway allowing straphangers to ride for free.

On Wednesday, OWS announced on its website that “a team of activists” opened more than 20 stations in Brooklyn and Manhattan by taping MetroCard readers at turnstiles and propping open emergency exits.

According to the group’s website, it was done “in a coordinated response to escalating service cuts, fare hikes, racist policing, assaults on transit workers’ working conditions and livelihoods — and the profiteering of the super-rich by way of a system they’ve rigged in their favor.”

OWS says they posted signs reading “Customers Ride For Free” and “Free Entry, No Fares Collected” on flyers that looked to be printed by the MTA.
