    In case anyone is wondering, the video is currently up on youtube. Since the video begins with the man yelling and with the cop already near him, one doesn’t know how long anyone may have been trying to get the man to get off the train. therefore, the aggressive manner in which the cop grabs him and takes him off may be warranted. then a window appears to get broken by the man’s arm when he is shoved to the platform wall. i’m not sure why both ended up going to hospitals, but part of the video is missing (they are at the wall and then it skips to them on the floor), so who knows.
