Sometimes, the angry yelling people on the T are violent, too

UPDATE, Thursday: Transit Police report arresting Calvin White, 40, on two counts of assault and battery and disorderly conduct.

Transit Police report your basic Red Line ranter went further than usual on Monday afternoon: He started cursing at a little girl, no more than 4, seated on the train, then assaulted a male rider who told him to stop just as the train was pulling into Park Street around 2:35 p.m.:

An MBTA official, who witnessed the assault, came over to assist and he too was assaulted by the unknown male.

If the guy looks familiar, contact Transit Police at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous tip to 873873.

Madam

The proper term for the "granny hat" you are referring to is Muslim headgear known as Taqiyah. Never seen a Sikh ranting like a loon since they are a peaceful people known for their innate ability for self control. Now study up on your Eastern religions and self righteous proclamations.

Date of last eye exam?

Here's a little assignment. Google image "taqiyah." Then look again at the giant fluffy (I believe cable knit) hat that man is wearing and see if there is any resemblance at all beyond the fact that they are both, in fact, hats. And then if you really want to carry on about how people X are all peaceful and have "innate self-control" while people Y are all just crazy violent m*therf*ckers, please feel free.

Saw him get off the train

Saw him get off the train Monday at shawmut and walk towards the school right there he was being belligerent on my train car as well. Nice that people who go to work and have money taken out of their checks so this guy can get messed
Up all day have to put up with assholes like this on their ride home.

Shawmut

Call the T Police please and tell them the day and time you saw this guy. I use Shawmut Station but I never saw this guy.

Did I miss something?

How did this move from an obnoxious and probably disturbed guy misbehaving on a train to a screed about public assistance? Seriously, how do you know he's getting messed up all day on the taxpayer's dime? I don't like putting up with loud, belligerent assholes on the T anymore than you do, but I think you're making some pretty big assumptions.

Or maybe I did miss something. In which case, sorry.

Yea, because...

any normal person is going to feel comfortable stopping a potentially mentally disturbed person. And, if he freakin' STABBED someone who interfered with him, what would you be saying? Pull your head outta your ass, Sally. You know goddamn well you'd let him walk away too.

How? Context.

I find the fact that this guy freakin' AMBLED his way up two flights of stairs from the Red Line without anyone being able to stop him kind of amazing. I don't think we need a cop at every station but sheesh--Park Street?

Bolded for emphasis. I took the meaning fine.

I do know what I'm writing.

As did the guy who posted the photo of the police car. All I'm asking is that next time you maybe pause a moment before exploding and telling me to get my goddamned head out of my ass, maybe, you know, give someone the benefit of the doubt before you go off on them.

would it make it any more

would it make it any more clear or easy to catch these guys if the video was directly uploaded from MBTA? I doubt it... if u know who that bum is u would know whether its a video of a video or just straight original uploaded footage... wish someone would have stopped him from the get go.. T misbehavior should not be tolerated in this city.
