  1. Looks like assailant was hurt as well. If he was hurt by a “protected” conductor, that’s a fight, not an assault?

  2. After they get out of prison that guy should never be allowed on NJ transit again. Don’t bend over for the soap

  3. It’s amazing how the world is changing isn’t it. If a New Jersey transit when are they going to fix the elevator at the Ridgewood train station.

  4. The elevator that doubles as a toilet?

  5. Dirty and stinky
