(Miami, FL)  —  Miami-Dade Transit authorities are doing damage control after a Miami Metrorail security guard forcibly pulled an 82-year-old Miami woman off the train.  Miami’s WSVN-TV reports that on February 20th the problem began when the guard asked passenger Emma Anderson to stop singing.  Apparently, the octogenarian was loudly singing religious hymns when the guard confronted her.  Footage of the incident shows the guard speaking with Anderson before yanking her grocery cart and dragging her out of the train.  The guard’s tugging then caused her to fall onto the platform, bruising her shoulder.  Karla Damaim of Miami-Dade Transit says the department regrets that Anderson had to be removed, but pointed out that singing is prohibited under the agency’s noise policy.  Anderson and her family have hired and an attorney to explore their legal options.
