Butt-Slapper Terrorizes Subway, Tish James Speaks Out
Sexual harassment on the trains is a big hidden issue. A 2007 poll found 63 percent of respondents reporting some form of it in their commutes, and HollaBack NYC chronicles such incidents every week. Last year the MTA planned an anti-harassment ad campaign in the trains, and briefly backed off, some thought because officials feared giving a bad impression of the subway; the MTA later reinstated it. But the butt-slapper hasn't gotten the message.
Update: An arrest has been made.
