NY Subway is a killer!
“Saving one life, to me, is important and it’s urgent,” New York City Council Transportation Committee Chairman James Vacca said.
You know what? If it is that important and that urgent, shut the system down. Seriously, if you turn off the subway, it will probably stop killing people (yes, I realize the subway is probably not a sentient creature, but I doubt these people do). Six people were killed with rifles in New York all last year. In just the last month, the NY subway has killed that many people. Clearly there is a need to shut down the subway immediately, or at least impose some common sense control like requiring background checks of subway riders to ensure that they won't throw fellow passengers onto the tracks! Likewise, if we got rid of our "high capacity" subway cars and limited the system to seven passengers per train, we could save a life!
Oh wait? You mean, there are downsides or costs to such a policy that outweigh the benefit of saving a life? You do understand that if you are opposed to halting or severly restricting all subway service, you are a cold, uncaring evil Nazi who hates the children, right?
