Fighting terror in #Los Angeles cannot be left to the FBI and related authorities if the tip-off turns out to be credible. Because of this, the Mayor of Los Angeles has called for the public to use the #iWatch app in the wake of the #Terror threat. The specific terror threat which came in from a foreign source has resulted in security being beefed up citywide, but in particular on rail. Eyes and ears are so important and as commuters get out and about, it is important that they remain vigilant.
