A Place for All Conservatives to Speak Their Mind.
About 20 years ago I was attacked on a New York City subway platform by somebody who looked just liked the guy in the video.Fortunately, I was sitting on a bench near the center of the platform and was able to fight the guy off until police arrived.Ever since then, I always make it a point to stand near the center of the platform, or against the wall if there is one, while waiting for the train. In yesterday's incident, the victim was a sitting duck because he was standing so close to the tracks while arguing with the culprit.This tragedy really hits home, because it almost happened to me 20 years ago.I'm sure a few of the regulars here wish that it did.
NH,Your not for banning public transportation are you? Because 1 rotten apple used a train to kill someone.
@ Anonymous 9:34 PMOf course not. Did my comment in any way suggest that? I was merely relating a personal story about the dangers of the New York City subway system.
This incident absolutely breaks my heart. It is not a joke. I think most people live their lives believing, if something happens, if they could call out, reach another person, catch someone's eye or get someone's attention, then there's a chance. A chance for someone to step in, someone to lend a hand, someone to go for help, something. There were many people here who could have given that chance to this man and his family, yet he was very much alone.
