    This reminds me of the kid in Paris who tried the same thing but was electrocuted in the tunnel… sparking (no pun intended) all of those crazy riots for months.

  • PurpleFlipFlops

    Darwin almost won.

    • MikeyinCrystalC

      Almost…almost.

  • Jason S

    Why stop the trains? He has to come out some time, just wait at the ends of the tunnel or for a train to report a kill.

    • CadeTyler

      Yes, because a person deserves to die for committing theft.

      • Jason S

        If you read that instead of read into it, I was not suggesting capital punishment for theft. I just don’t think the life of a shoplifter being an idiot is worth inconveniencing that many people going about their daily business. If he dies, oh well, we have a nearly unlimited supply of worthless idiots. If he comes back out, arrest him then. In the meantime, don’t disrupt a major transportation system on his behalf.

        If I said he deserved capital punishment, I would have say, “Take him out back and shoot him”. A natural consequence for stupidity is self-induced death, capital punishment is not self-induced. Thusly, I am merely saying we should let nature take its course and not alter the behaviour of the wildlife.

          However you nuance it, you are still a sociopath.

    He must be a Grand Theft Auto junkie like myself. That’s my surefire way to shake the fuzz when I get a 4-star wanted level or higher. Better luck next time dude.

  • Thirsty

    Great strategy. With the way metro has been operating, that kid’s “commute” to Pentagon was probably the fastest way b/w stations.

    Last week’s report was way more interesting!
