“Dear PoP,

Did you receive any correspondence regarding a brawl/fight between some youth on the green line metro yesterday at around 5pm near the U Street stop? In any case this one guy-pretty much broke up the whole thing. He was awesome and deserves big props! There were also a couple of other guys that assisted.

Basically-what seemed to have happened was that these kids were standing by the door delaying the train-and the mystery guy asked them to please move so that the train could continue and after that it seemed like all hell broke loose-it all happened very fast-All of a sudden these feral youth were beating up on this other kid and this guy dove right in and broke it all up and kicked the urchins off the train.

I prefer an uneventful train ride home. Perhaps Metro should do something about large packs of these creatures traveling together, since they obviously don’t know how to conduct themselves in society.”

This is the first I’m hearing of this fight. Anyone else happen to witness this? Glad to hear that some good Samaritans were able to jump in and not get hurt.
