Phily Incident
Posted by MidlandMike on Thursday, October 21, 2021 10:00 PM

This Philadelphia Subway incident was widely reported on national news, but NewsWire didn't pick it up.  Perhaps because of the sensitive subject of a sexual assault, or the fact that fellow passengers didn't try to intervene, made it that much more horrendous.  However, I think ignoring the story makes us more detached, and perhaps hesitant like the passengers on that train.  Luckily an off-duty SEPTA worker at a passing station notified transit police.
