The events leading up to this issue are obviously very tragic for the families and the crews on the train.

But can we take a step back and get some perspective? We don't have fences along busy streets to prevent psychos from pushing people in front of cars or trucks. Do we really need gates on the platform? That's a maintenance nightmare and a costly initiative.
