This just saved us $100,000 to prosecute him but his family will have by 9 AM this morning already filed a law suit against the CTA and city for wrongful death. So there goes the savings

I know I'm about to be heartless, but This idiot caused me a two hour drive home instead of 45 minutes because it took an hour just to out of downtown. My compliments though to the cops directing traffic. thank you for being so helpful!

I hope he enjoys his time in purgatory!

The eerie part is that its actually safer on the red line than being in the neighberhood, so its 6 of one or a half dozen of another.

Whoever drove that Red Line train, thank you! You saved the world from a scumbag who would have robbed, if not killed, a lot more people.
