Man Run Over By Subway After Defecating Between Cars
"Police say a 31-year-old man defecating between cars on the uptown 6 train was killed when he fell onto the tracks and was struck by the train he was riding.
Witnesses tell police the victim had been defecating between the cars when he fell just after 4 p.m. as the train was leaving the 125th Street station.
The homeless person's last affront to society, publicly defecating, cost New York City thousands, as transit officials, police and emergency workers responded to the accident.
It's illegal to stand between subway cars, the cops should have pinned a ticket to the corpse.
In a separate incident minutes earlier a homeless person was seen climbing out of a subway, inured and bleeding. Who knows and who cares how he sustained his injuries, the only thing we can be sure of is that taxpayers will be stuck with his medical bills.
New York, like most big cities, has a laissez faire attitude towards the homeless, we allow them to urinate and defecate on the streets, buses and subways.
There should be a zero tolerance attitude for the homeless, a few are in need of medical or psychiatric assistance, but most of them need a good swift kick in the butt.
