Emergency Brake

A great video explaining the MTA (New York) emergency brake. By Casey Neistat, via Gawker.

Note that the narrator says not to pull the brake in the event of a violent incident. When a man was murdered in November, riders alerted the conductor via intercom and the doors were locked. (That's where the controversy starts.)
