I think the guy that made this video (and his sponsors) think it's funny.

Can you forward the link to the LIRR police? They obviously have his name and may be able to use the video as evidence to press more charges.

And they arrested Darius McCollum. But this clown keeps hopping trains and letting the world know how adventurous it is. He needs some Rikers Island therapy. Lord knows how many copy cat loons will try to emulate his antics thanks to his videos.

I can't imagine mta-pd doesn't already know who he is. Plus assuming he was ticketed both times he was caught here, he couldn't be re-tried.

This video was posted on a 'news' site with a decent amount of not-so-smart millennial readership - it looks like they may have paid him to make it too (judging by the branding). http://gothamist.com/2016/08/30/hopping ... ontauk.php

The bad news is I'm sure the authorities will be looking for copycats (and eying anyone near the property more suspiciously). The good news is it seems he was caught in the act 2 of the 4 times he tried this stunt while leaving from fresh pond (caught once at Jamaica, once at fresh pond - got away when he went somewhere on LI and up to oak point).

Sooner or later,some crew will have an unwanted day off/drug testing when this IDIOT gets killed,by jumping on a freight.
He should know by now NY&A doesn't reach Montauk.

This is the kind of thing that deserves a Darwin Award. Not only was what he was doing idiotic, but also -- as Backshophoss said -- impossible.
*slow clap*

I wonder how CURES will spin this...

Here is a novel idea, maybe he can get a job working ON the railroad. So he can ride trains and get paid for doing it.

That would actually require him wanting a real job, and not to be paid by some blog to go make narcissistic ass of himself.

Yes, you are probably right. Also he is developing rap sheet for trespassing, so forget working for the LIRR (or any other rr that has caught him trespassing.)

The risks of train hopping so far outweigh the enjoyment derived - death, dismemberment. arrest. However, train spotting is a different thing.
