Take The “A” Train

Philly Man Throws Woman Onto Subway TracksThere’s a scene in The Matrix where Agent Smith throws Neo onto the subway tracks. He narrowly escapes before the train arrives. Agent Smith is not so lucky.

In Philadelphia, life imitates art.

Surveillance video of the incident at the Chinatown station shows the man in a hooded jacket suddenly pouncing on his 23-year-old female victim sitting alone on the station platform. But when she hands over the lighter he moves in closer repeatedly punching her in the head and grabbing her ankles.

He then forcefully pulls the woman off the platform bench, dragging her by her feet across the platform before throwing her onto the tracks.

As a result, the Obama administration is crafting legislation to ban subways.

    Amazing that she was able to get out of the way. I have never been a fan of subways/elevated rail anywhere. I guess I am just a country boy at heart living in suburbia, ugh.
