NEW YORK - The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a train that was covered in graffiti was pulled from service to have the vandalism removed.

The New York City Police Benevolent Association posted video of the train on its twitter page blasting the transit system, calling the incident "A true sign of decay."


It added, "The taggers had plenty of time to cover the entire train, because they know there are no more consequences."

The MTA says instances of grafitti are significantly lower now than in the past and that the PBA’s tweet is a reflection of tensions between the union and City Hall.
