    So I don’t want to get down on the cop for rushing onto a train and catching a perp, but… The footage looks like he got there, stuck his arms to open the doors and then the train operator saw him and opened the doors. The doors don’t open that easily.

    The fact there are people on Block CLub’s FB page actually defending the tire-slashy perp speaks volumes about everything wrong with this city. This whole tale of two cities would seem to have an additional angle, one city where its residents believe they own the street parking space in front of their home, and then one where the those of us reside who understand what the definition of public means.
