I don't see how the Texans will overreact to this. More safety barriers is always a good thing.
The callousness in this thread is par the course for the human race. Ship happens.
Yeah let's bubble wrap the planet to protect the idiots from themselves.
Also what you call callousness I call reality and this doesn't have anything to do with some negative reflection on the human race. In my line of work I have to deal with cases like this all the time, sorry if I'm not sensitive enough.
I feel bad for his family and that will be a horrible funeral.. a completely unneccesary funeral. It can't be easy to bury a son, because he was a idiot who tried to ride down a escalator rail. Again feel sorry for the family, but this guy did something incredibly stupid.. A thing that parents should tell their kids about so hopefully nobody repeats his lapse in judgement.
