The New Yorker who saw it called it crazy, while another person said that it was something they’d seen before. 

“The conductor said to me the other day that he wanted me to get off the back platform. Megan Vega, NBC New York’s Megan Vega said that a young man sitting in the back should get up off the platform.

“What’s the point of putting rails above the subway?” He said, “It’s not going to work.” “The subways feel very unsafe recently, and that is more of my concern.

The NYPD isn’t the only one to deal with subway surfing. Three children were found on the back of an uptown train in 2015 by the NYPD. Another man was discovered riding the back of the Brooklyn 5-train in 2019, and a third man, aged 32, died from falling from the J-train in 2021.

Although Mayor Eric Adams has promised to reduce crime, this attack is just one of several that have taken place in New York’s subway system.

New York’s transit crime has risen by 54% in 2022, compared with 2021. Eric Adams, the New York City Mayor, was an ex-cop who was elected to end crime in New York. He has been criticised along with the NYPD.

NYPD data shows that while shooting and murders are both down almost 9 and 7 percent, respectively, overall crime has risen nearly 40% so far in 2022, according to NYPD.

It includes a staggering 39.5 Percent increase in Robberies, 19% more felony Assaults and 16% increase in Rapes.

However, transit crime is up at 54 (53.6%) percent, with 989 reports through June 6, 2022 compared to 644 in the same period last year.

Last week, Mayor Adams fumed at prosecutors and judges for cutting loose suspected shooters, allowing them to unleash more gunfire in New York— saying the ‘bad guys no longer take them seriously.’

Adams spoke out at a Brooklyn news conference, praising NYPD officers for their ‘laser-focused approach to shooting’. He also demanded that the ‘other team do their part’.

The courts need to prosecute. He said that judges must ensure they remain in.

Everyone must contribute. If they don’t, they get out there and make it up.

Since then, she has pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and first-degree manslaughter.
