Pretty distinctive way he holds his mouth. I hope they can ID him pretty easily.

Growing up and taking the T into Boston starting in the late 80s, you had your collection of drunks being loud and grabby, homeless guys or people beginning for money or loud kids and teens who made you feel unsafe. However now you have normal and bland looking people acting unstable.

I am not sure if people went feral during lockdown and never recovered or the current climate of the world makes it seem like any sort of assault on someone is an appropriate response.

It’s scary when the dangerous look normal.

Why blame external factors like people's failure to "recover" from a so-called "lockdown" (this country didn't have anything even remotely close to a "lockdown) or the "current climate of the world"? There are contributing factors, sure, but being an asshole is a choice.

...but haven't they taken out many of the seats that used to be on the platform anyway? Which just makes the competition for seats even worse than it used to be.
