    Why couldn't the cops jump the turnstile? Also, they could've went underneath, depending on their physical ability that is.

    They could also have swiped in with their NYPD-issued cards.

    No one has time to get those out during a chase. I can imagine they get up to the turnstile and they're trying to find their wallet

    So he's an exemplary employee, yet he's trying to leave the booth and not cooperate? Where was he supposed to be going?

    But they couldn't hop the turnstile?

    John McClain would've either hopped it or drove the Crown Vic onto the tracks to catch dude.

    You know cops aren't going to do that. They expected the clerk to buzz them in and he deliberately disrespected them. If someone was kicking his @ss though, he would be looking to those cops for help.

    So you risk a few (other) people going through the open gate... Considering what's at stake, was that really that serious (if that was his mindset)? Or maybe dude thought they were fake cops? I can't think of a reason off-top as to why the clerk wouldn't comply? Maybe he was in on the heist!

     

    In all seriousness, open the damn gate, let the cops try to get their hands on & arrest that thief & go on about your day....

    I didn't realize I was a lame for "talking about transit all day on a transit forum, like, who does that"....

    Who knew.

     

    Maybe I'd become "kewl" for joining a forum where racist trolls sign up to ask "Is this neighborhood safe" - and they end up becoming accepted members if they keep coming back...

    Why couldn't the clerk open the gate?

    My personal take is he didn't want to be bothered at all and either thought those guys were fake, doesn't like cops from personal experiences, or was trying to go strictly by the book, but given his reaction, I'd say he purposely called himself being difficult because he didn't care for them. If it was a question of going by the book, then he wouldn't have tried to leave the booth.

    I did security for a bit while in college and I had a few cops that would lookout for me. You learn quickly how to go about things, so given how long he's been around, I find it hard to believe that he didn't know the deal.

    Its very hard to jump the turnstyle if you're not in shape, its easier to just go though the gate. When I was cash strapped I done it before, You also risk tripping on the turnstyle if you don't get your feet high enough, and losing your gripe if your hands are wet or sweaty.
