Another Senseless Train Death

...suicide on DC Metro system.

LINK

When will the government step in to make it less convenient for people to kill themselves and others?

I ride that very train and it's highly annoying. The commute can be bad enough to begin with.

I've traveled the orange line through there a good bit and those trains are packed as a mother for the work commutes in the AM as PM.

Would suck.

I wonder if the train riders even felt a bump?

A few years back I showed up at a TriMet station in Portland to go to work and some poor bastard had just gotten crushed. It happened about a minute before I got there. No first responders were there yet just people freaking. It was gruesome.

They are helpful to my march to 1,000 posts. I don't even have to think a whole lot.

Not that I get accused of that much around here.

The train operator will slam on the brakes, that'll be a hell of a bump, but that's about it.

Of course, the first thing they do is evacuate the train and shut down the entire station, which is about as big a disruption as you can get. I was at Rosslyn in 2012 when a jumper did his thing (I didn't see it, fortunately) and decided to just walk 20 minutes to the next station.
