Again, Something to Encourage

Seems to be a whole bunch of dumb criminals out there lately:
  • Service in both directions of the CTA's Red Line has been restored more than two hours after a train struck and killed a robbery suspect trying to flee across the tracks just south of the Chinatown stop, CTA officials said.

    Hundreds of riders on Red Line trains were evacuated around 4:30 p.m. The incident unfolded during rush hour along the northbound tracks near 27th Street where trains are coming up to grade level from the subway, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. The man was hit by a northbound train and pinned underneath it, he said.
Exceptionally Cleared Closed we're guessing.

"As he jumped to try to board a moving North Bound Train he lost his grip and fell under it"!

Will his survivors sue the CTA?

You know they will!

Lawsuit coming against the city! I'll bet the police chased him onto the tracks causing him to die. Put the POD camera tapes, get C.R.'s now!

Gotta admit.... if the shithead would have gotten away from the Ginzo's in hot pusuit ... by holding onto the side of a moving train .... would've been a pretty cool escape.

Channel 5's Marion Brooks reported this incident on the 10 o'clock news last night. Incredibly, she repeated at least twice, how tragic it was that this poor man had to lose his life in this incident. Let's see, just committed an Armed Robbery, a career criminal no doubt, another drain on society, and this is tragic how? GFY Marion.

And of course in stead of waiting to be evacuated all of the passengers got off and began walking down the tracks. One women is claiming the incident caused her to have a heart attack. Once again, lawsuits galore, the city pays out, and taxes/cta fair goes up.

His family will sue city/police for chasing him and causing his death. City will settle out of court for millions.

Hey a lot of this is in really bad taste guy. C'mon this was a human life.

I heard he was a very appealing person. In fact they were "a peeling" him from the train tracks just yesterday!

Sorry, sorry...

I heard he went "all to pieces" over this

Sorry, sorry...

What do you think was the last thing that went through his mind?

I hope it was the dirtbag who strong-armed my daughter's I-Pod while she was on the Blue Line.

I'll look this goof up. If it is we will know that there is some justice in this world.

Dead goblin - good.

Many thousands of people delayed for hours, $100,000s of extra expenses for the CTA - bad.

Also, the train driver is probably freaked out of his mind. Something like that can give a man nightmares for years.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, but the collateral damage is not trivial.

Just A Civilian CTA Passenger.

Many offenders from the Dearborns come to 009/021 to prey on bridgeport and chinatown residents then they run across the dan ryan to flee. This guy just had some bad timing. We even get the ones who cross just to flee like superman who jumped out his girl's 2nd floor window into powerlines then across 90/94 till he was found on the deuces side an hour later after having almost bleed out. PCP saves another life.

I bet Sgt. Atzlan from CTA is gonna try to take credit for this. More stories to add to the 10yr old stories being told.

Darn, this was not the dirtbag who ripped off my daughter’s I-Pod on the Blue Line.

She wasn't physically hurt and maybe it was worth the lesson.

Suggestion to parents, don't buy your kids (or anyone else), combination music player/cell phones. The fact that her phone was separate was one of the things that saved her.

But, keep trying out there asshole there's 660 volt third rail just waiting for you
