Thieves won't be commuting on the CAHSR. More like millennial douchebags from the Silicon Valley, who will use towns like Fresno or Merced as their bedroom communities while, say, Facebook or Google subsidizes (or even pays for) their train passes. Then these hipster fucksticks will impose their coastal will and values upon the Central Valley's working class, while driving up housing and property values.
Bako still won't be immune, though. Whatever big-money kids work in LA, will use the CAHSR to do the same to Bakersfield what the Silicon Valley shitbirds will do to Fresno and Merced.
This won't just be a fast, novel way of traveling between Sodom and Gomorrah without getting groped by TSA agents nor getting your ass beat by airport cops. It'll make the concerns of "Loot Rail" seem like small-potatoes by comparison.
Pic unrelated. But props to anyone that gets the reference.
