rowdy passengers. Such behavior should be sanctioned with fines or citations for loitering in public space.

Maybe they should cite all sitting or standing subway passengers for loitering in a public space. After all, they're just remaining there and not moving. Great revenue source for cash-strapped transit agencies.

I guess you both miss the point. If they want people to use public transportation as smooth as a car or cab, they must make transit a place whose expected user behavior is the lowest common denominator, e.g., quiet passengers, no loud talking, let alone singing or partying.

It is not like an event people could choose to attend, and those who dislike such rowdiness have a right not to be disturbed. And those wanting to party... go clubbing or shut up.

I had never seen these "moving platforms", can anyone tell more about them, were there other accidents concerning them, when were they installed, can they have a fallen person detection system, why cant they be retracted with an emergency push button?

Teenager Is Stabbed at a Bronx Subway Station
By THOMAS KAPLAN

A 19-year-old man was stabbed on a Bronx subway platform early on Saturday after confronting a man whom he suspected of stealing a cellphone on a downtown No. 4 train, the police said.

The altercation occurred at the Fordham Road station about 4 a.m., the authorities said.

The teenager and his friend, who were not identified, got on the subway at the Woodlawn station and then dozed off, the police said. At some point, the youth woke up and noticed the missing cellphone.

As the train arrived at the Fordham Road station, the two young men were said to have noticed a man who appeared to have the cellphone. They got off the train. While his friend went to alert a token booth clerk, the youth confronted the man on the platform, who stabbed him in the torso, according to the authorities.

The teenager was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition on Saturday afternoon.

Subway 'stabber' and 'accomplice' arrested
By JESSICA SIMEONE
Last Updated: 12:24 PM, April 29, 2012

Cops arrested the knife-wielding thug and his accomplice who brutally attacked a teen for his cell phone on a Bronx subway platform, authorities said.

Victor Montalvo, 22, and Maritza Lopez, 21, were arrested yesterday on a slew of charges including attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

The duo allegedly swiped a cell phone from the 19-year-old victim while he was sleeping on a southbound 4 train at 4 a.m. Saturday, cops said.

The victim spotted the thieves and confronted them on the platform of the Fordham Road station. It was then that Montalvo pulled a knife and stabbed the teen several times before fleeing with Lopez, cops said.

The victim was taken to St. Barnabus where he is still in critical but stable condition, authorities said.

Exactly. They weren't doing anything illegal, so just suck it up and move on with your life.

I hope we haven't overfed the troll. They tend to throw up when that happens.
