@Anonymous: MTA workers aren’t “useless.” This city wouldn’t run without their daily efforts. I’m not condoning what this guy allegedly did, but let’s not denigrate the entire group based on his actions.

@Alon Taub You’ll take every opportunity to denigrate the gay community right? Is that who you are writing about? The “sexual deviates?” You like to hurt people? You like to make them feel less than human? Who is your savior? Will you share some jokes about gays when you meet your maker? Or maybe you’re not religious, just an everyday ass.


Hahaha !! MTA’s useless workers r in the booths. I don’t see them doing any work in there. Finally he was doing something and got caught lol..
