Struggling to get out of Park Street

A concerned citizen complains:

Rotating gate at park street that facilates the exit from inside the subway to the outside. It's extremely hard to push it. Elders and many others will not be able to push it. Needs to be fixed. Citizen here in action!! ;)

Remember the Braintree guy who waltzed across the Red Line tracks just as a train was entering Andrew after the St. Patrick's Day parade?

A judge ordered him to stay out of South Boston, but didn't order him to stay away from the T, which might have saved him some trouble Wednesday night, when, as Transit Police report, he was in a foul, foul mood around 11 p.m. at Park Street station: Read more.

Last May, the MBTA released a video showing a Transit Police detective rescuing a man from jumping in front of a train at Park Street. WCVB reports the man now has a lawyer - who had to sue to get the complete video, which shows the two struggled on the platform and the detective punching the man to subdue him.
