You know how you’re always told not to touch the third rail of the MARTA tracks (or of anything, I suppose)? Well, there’s a reason why you’re told that.

A man running from police was killed Thursday when he came in contact with the electrified third rail at the airport MARTA station, authorities said.

    And, as a corollary, why you shouldn’t run from the po-po.

    I guess that’s another lesson you could take from this. But I think you’d have to stretch to get that one.
