Am telling you, people have lost their GD minds.


Even more to the point, who carries around a metal pipe anyway?

I gotta get outta here before I turn 55. These poor old people it's even worse than the 70s.

At least back then the punks just robbed them they didn't harm the elderly.

This is why my mother doesn't go into the city. Too old to be tussling with some meth head junkie.

A good portion of people get "triggered" over what the media tells them to get "triggered" on. It is somewhat scary.

This is the 5th elderly person to get attacked in the last 12 months.

The same type of people who carry around machetes.

Have been riding #2 and #3 trains more often lately as we've picked up a few clients downtown, and Chambers Street is my stop.


Must say trains are usually crowded even after rush hour going towards evening or so. Maybe has something to do with all the new residential or whatever causing tons of people to move into Brooklyn.


In any event crowded trains just seem to bring out the worse in some people. Not everyone can handle being piled on top of each other, and when weather gets warm tempers often are short.


Still having a beef with someone on a train about trivial nonsense is no reason to haul off and beat them down with a metal pipe.

Same here. Too many people jammed in this small city. And it's just going to get worse with those new developments that you see all over the city.

8.2 million residents + 40 million annual tourist + out of state workers (PA, NJ, CT) + NY State workers + illegal immigrants + crazy commute + High COL + Low QOL = too many fing people that are one push away from losing their minds.

I am in the final stages of solidifying my career. Hope to be director level in 5 to 7 years and move elsewhere.

People have to learn, no matter how old they are and how hard it is, to not get involved in altercations on the subway. If someone is acting crazy and you feel as though you want to confront them, wait for the next stop, get off the train, and go into another car. There is just too much of a chance that the person will flip and seriously injure you over nothing. Even saying something in a nice way can get you beaten to a pulp. I'm not suggesting it's right but seriously, people have to stop confronting people on the train.

I did not watch that video so I don't know what was said. i'm still traumatized over the Junior video.
