In this day and age, not having security at any public event is tantamount to disaster. 50 cm = 20". That's freaking huge, and could easily have been confiscated and/or the man turned away and/or have the police called. Ridiculous. And anyone who seeks to hurt others, especially innocents, regardless of the reason or state of mind, needs to be put away for a long, long, long, time.

I wonder if the guy who reported it had something to do with it, and felt guilty about it, as well he should.

Amazing what raises peoples' ire. Gun control? Drugs? Terrorists? Infrastructure? Hunger? Gangs? This vid doesn't even make the top 20.

I'm willing to bet that more drivers slow down for inanimate objects than they would for people holding warning flags. Sad, but, probably true.

This is why many undercover mass transit cops appear to be sleeping: To catch those who would prey on real sleeping people. A TV news magazine show had an episode about one such in a NYC subway, showing undercover cops on the train and platform, and it was amazing to see the criminals in action (assuming it wasn't staged, of course), some of whom looked like decent businessmen. Even more amazing were the few people who tried to help apparent drunks by getting or calling the police (when summoned, the police - - all of whom were in on the sting - - had to pretend to help the "sleeper"). It would have been more interesting to surreptitiously view real drunks/sleepers to see what might have happened.
