They walked down a street/corridor following next to Leonidas with tons of armed guards, and other onlookers behind them, and literally walked in front of it, of his own accord. In other words, a series of very poor choices on the part of the messenger.

He might have saved her life.

This happened in Boston recently where a guy tried to go on a train where the door was already closed. It dragged them and he died. His family got an insane payout from the city. Money that would have otherwise been used on public transportation. In a city that desperately could use the money for public transportation.

So yeah. When the door is shutting or shut, take that shit seriously.

Let’s be real though, the city payout makes no difference on their ability to fund public transport, they just don’t give a shit about it

So you don't pay the insurance company their 10% or whatever annual profit on your money. All insurance is to spread the risk out among a large group of people. Cities like Boston are large enough to mitigate the risk themselves.

u/Imacad Feb 08 '23

The premiums insurance companies charge to cover a large city are huge, astronomical. Especially in America.

most large cities couldn't even get liability cover if they wanted it, and if they could, the premiums would be too high to be worth it.

3

u/alien_clown_ninja Feb 08 '23

Insurance is just setting aside money for a rainy day. Insurance companies take more money than they need to pay out for the rainy days, and keep the rest in multi billions in profit. If you have deep enough pockets, like a city, to avoid the insurance companies, then you can just set money aside and not pay into insurance company's profits.

That is the MFL (Market-Frankford) and it's hard to tell for sure, but I'm pretty sure that's Allegheny Station, which can be a really rough part of town. Mainly just around the subway stops and certain other hot areas around there--you get a lot of junkies that are both homeless and also completely dependent on heroine/opioids. It's really sad...I mean devastatingly sad more than anything. Although I'd like to say these kinds of scenes are "rare"--after working in Northeast Philadelphia for 6 years and taking the train past that stop every day and evening, it's not uncommon unfortunately (ok to be fair I've never seen anyone get Sparta-kicked out of the train before--but I've seen my fair share of crazy shit riding the MFL).

u/TenaciousDzNutz Feb 08 '23 edited Feb 08 '23

It will cause a delay on a systematic proportion. This was very well deserved and appropriate response for daily riders. In many major cities you will encounter these events on a fairly regular basis.

Think of this as what happens on a roadway when someone slows to a crawl or stops on a highway. The cars behind will have to slow or stop. this causes the vehicles to pile up over a large area. those approaching even a mile or even several miles down the road will have the effects reach them in the form of slowing or stopping to maintain safe distances. Even if the obstruction was to be cleared, it would take several minutes to even hours for the traffic in that direction to flow normally. Much like a ripple or a slinky effect. Now take into consideration the flow off traffic is directly attached to on and off ramps. this causes delays in these as well. That, in turn, affects the surface streets around it. Taking all that into consideration, in a system such as a metro rail, this operates in a loop. The "flow of traffic" is both forward and backward in direction. Unlike on a highway, where the traffic flows a single direction.

On a rail system, there is only a single track in either direction with a single lane (most cities). Now if one single train gets delayed, every single train no matter the direction will have to compensate for the time lost, slowing, acceleration, station wait times, and passenger flow. While some trains will have to extend their wait time, some may have to speed up, slow down, or simply not allow passengers to regulate to a steady flow again.

Extend this out farther to other systems and you will start getting the bigger picture. Because the rails are out of schedule, they will reach the stops either quicker or much slower. Bus lines are usually co-scheduled along side the station times to coordinate the steady flow of transport around the city. If large amounts of passengers are loading onto busses because of long delays, many busses will experience longer passenger flow times. this causes them to delay along the entire route. This causes the effects to also be felt by surrounding traffic as busses will make longer stops and cars will have to go around them where that is possible. that then affects the vehicle traffic as well. This even congests the streets with cars overflowing onto the walking paths across roadways which slows pedestrian flow as well.

In short a ripple effect that is felt by all.

Sparta kick = appropriate

Hope that sums it up in a way that is easily understandable.

Edit: For context, I currently live in the Los Angeles metro area and frequent public transit. I have lived in many major cities such as: San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, D.C., Atlanta, etc.

in all honesty, I ride metro rails in Los Angeles quite regularly. If someone does this, the train will not move. if that one train doesn't move, then this delays the entire metro rail system along that route and any connector rails directly attached to it. this can cause a chain reaction just like traffic with vehicles do on a road way. This is also dangerous! if someone gets pulled by a train they will perish.

Many times the homeless and just generally inconsiderate people will block the doors, pull the emergency door release handle, or just place objects in the door so it won't close. They absolutely do not care and that is the problem. These actions are followed by the train conductor yelling over the intercom to clear or close the door. they will not move without it closed and it is an extreme annoyance. if no one clears the obstruction, or closes the emergency latches, the train's conductor will have to get out and do it themselves.

I have been the one many times to shut the release valves so the train can continue service. I have pushed several people in a similar fashion as well as forcefully kicked people like this.

We all have places to be, and people like this are a menace to everyone, safety, and the overall system as a whole.

I fully endorse actions like this, albeit try and defuse the situation first. Try for peace, but if it comes down to it, the swift boot of justice is well deserved.

This is SPARTA!!!

I feel like kicking someone, who is not being physically aggressive towards other people, is a no go.

This could have been solved in a more humane way. Kicking anyone in the stomach like that is assault and battery. What the woman was doing was undoubtedly not legal. However there are proper channels of dealing with misbehaviour like this.

Violence solves nothing.

Some people are too stupid to argue with and convince, and this wasn’t exactly a “walk away” situation, and it WAS impacting others, A LOT of others.

Violence solves nothing.

This isn't the fucking Hundred Acre Wood. I don't like violence anymore than you do but there are times when it is necessary. Not everybody is rational or willing to talk shit out. I've been forced to resort to violence to save my own damn life.

Violence stopped the Nazis taking over Europe. It put an end to slavery in the US. It's solved a fuckton of other issues. As long as there are human beings there will be evil people and unfortunately the only way to stop them, is with violence.

If you really believe your catchy little slogan then there is no hope for you.

IIRC someone on the train had grabbed their bag.

So the kick people are celebrating is from a thief or accomplice.

Saw this before, wasn't she trying to get back her bag or something she left in the subway?

Doors get fully opened and she never walks in, looks like she was pointing at something before getting kicked to the shadow realm

That was SO satisfying to watch, seriously I had the look of anger and defeat when I thought the person was successful in prying open the doors and entering, that was amazing to see
