First, it was some mentally ill person pulling the emergency brakes on subway trains, now some deranged screwball throws a lit firecracker into a train, causing people to panic and nearly stampede over each other to get away.
Our subway system is turning into a cesspool of screwballs, gropers, miscreants and just plain lousy people doing things to innocent hardworking people. Why aren't there significantly more transit cops on our trains and stations?
Instead of taxpayer money being misused by our egotistical mayor for his forays around the country as a presidential hopeful, why not use all of that money to hire more transit police to improve quality of life throughout our transit system?
New Yorkers deserve no less. The MTA has a lot of work to do, and making the transit system safe for riders should be its number one priority.
