A fifth person since January has suicided themselves under a DC Metro Train, snarling the commute for thousands of Metro riders. The situation has become intolerable for WMATA so they are going to make it easier and more convenient to purchase a farecard and die on their system. They are installing “Suicide Booths.” This is a technology whose time has come.
From WashExaminer here:
A man was killed Monday morning in the latest suicide attempt on the transit system.
The man, an adult, jumped into the path of the Red Line train at White Flint around 10:15 a.m. He died under the train.
Metro closed down the station briefly but reopened it shortly after 11 a.m., though trains continued to share a single track. Delays occurred along the Red Line.
The man was the fifth person struck by a Metro train in a suicide attempt so far this year.
What if all of these suicides were because gays haven’t been paying attention to the “It gets better” Youtube video series? Five gay suicides and no one is yet to be charged with a “Bias Crime” like Dharun Ravi?
