All Hell Breaks Loose at Harlem Subway Station [Video]
It's been a while since we had a good subway fight video! This one is a doozy, featuring basically an all-out melee between young-looking girls and NYPD officers at the 125th Street 2/3 station. The girls tried to jump the turnstiles; chaos ensued.
The guy who posted the video describes the scene:
These girls allegedly jumped the subway turn style to avoid a fare. when the cops entered the train and tried to talk them out. It didn't work. They began to force them out and this is what happend next. Not sure if you can fully see but there was a gigantic mob of people who had the cops/girls surrounded. Some seemed to be protesting the cops and others where if favor of the police action. It seemed like it took forever for back up to arrive but as you can see it wasn't really that long. This happened FAST. Not sure what happened to these girls after they were arrested.
The cops don't seem to have had this one well in hand, as evidenced by the long minutes of people screaming and running around. Then again, has everyone forgotten how you're supposed to behave on the subway?
