    Man they way crime in the subways are now it's almost like how out of control it was during the 70's and 80's with all the recent rash of incidents we've seen this year and the past year in 2011. OK maybe I am blowing this out of proportion but these trends in crime in the subway as well as the suicides are not good. Nowadays I am especially cautious when commuting for this reason. I never know when someone is going to flip out and start stabbing people with screwdrivers or pull out a electric saw and cut people (which really happened). Very disconcerting.

    In my opinion, the reality is more a higher media coverage than a real surge of crime.
    There been more people hit by train in 2011 than in 2012.

    Well there was the recent shootings on the (N) in Brooklyn too. Not to mention countless incidents of brawls on the trains, robberies, sexual misconduct etc. that never makes the news but goes viral on the internet.

     

    That says a lot about how things are going downhill here....

    People having sex on the trains and stations (seen it for myself, really disgusting and totally disrespectful), people being assaulted (witnessed it), why there was a video posted somewhere on this forum via liveleak of a man who killed himself by electrocuting himself on the third rail. Shootings, stabbings..... The NYPD may need to consider beefing up security in the wake of the rash of violent incidents that has happened as of late.

     

    Until that happens of course the smart thing to do is use common sense - be alert of your surroundings, hide all electronics, money, wallets and jewelry, walk away when provoked because you don't know if that person may be even armed with a bullet with your name on it. And on late night travels see to it you travel either in the T/O's car or the C/R's car to protect yourself.

     

    When waiting for a train late night stay in the waiting area in the mezzanine if at all possible.

     

    Now myself  I'm a trooper so I don't follow any of these rules. In all seriousness the random sicko on the train who f**ks with me is playing with fire believe me. But nethertheless it's good to use common sense to protect yourself. Point is from what I've seen lately and read in the news, crime is going up. I don't care what the newspapers are saying, something is wrong here in terms of security in our transit system. My two cents.

    For some reason, I found this line kinda funny:
