Re: Drunken brawl on LIRR demonstrates need for new drinking ban

I hate public drunks. I enjoy a beer after a day's yardwork, or a day's office work. But this is just stupidity. While there's no doubt that these folks are partying hardy, they should not be continuing to drink on the train. Truthfully, there are good reasons we have open-container laws on the streets.

I think that on trains, legal drinking should end even earlier- like 8:30 or 9:00 PM, the allow a "shoulder" peruiod afer the rush hour, maybe for folks who worked late and need a cold one to relax. But scenes such as we see here need ot be stopped. Maybe if people got the message they can't drink on the train home, they'd stop a little earlier too.

Of course, maybe a different way of looking at it it, with all sympathy to LIRR employees, at least these dummies weren't DRIVING!!
