WASHINGTON (WUSA) — There’s more fallout from Metro’s plan to randomly screen passenger’s bags for explosives.

The ACLU calls random screening ineffective and intrusive and is considering legal action if Metro ignores its request to stop.
Lots of riders are skeptical, too. In an unscientific poll, we talked to a whole lot of people getting on and off Metro at Dupont Circle and found very few who thought randomly searching bags was an effective way to fight terrorism.
But the plan is already close to provoking a passenger revolt. “I think it’s ridiculous, all this stuff,” said one rider.
