    See? Right there is the problem. "There were no reports of weapons used in the attack." I'll bet if someone had pulled a .45 and lit up a few of those "kids" things would have settled down real quick.

    "Here, sir, take this."
    "That's not my watch."
    "I know. It's mine. I just don't want you to shoot me."

    It's Oakland. No guns there. And the guy with the 45 in your scenario would have been arrested for endangering the other passengers and sued for mental duress, etc.

    This is kinda deja moo for me....or I remember all this bull sheet. In Guatemala, I read the papers of how the bus drivers were killed and the people robbed. Sad. In Nicaragua hardly ever since some of the bus drivers have guns....don't know why or how.
    One time when my wife was robbed with many others and the man with the big knife left the bus, a mayan man shouted " What men have cajones here, he is one and we are many"......they caught him and beat the crap out of him real real bad.
    My point is that this appears to be very similar to the bus robberies that occurs south of the border. And despite what you may hear in the news.....I think the general consensus from most in the spanish community is.....kill them all.

    This is why you should always be armed. If you are prohibited from carrying.....find another means of transportation.

    Bernard Goetz made two monumental mistakes.

    A. He did not carry enough gun.

    B. He did not keep his big mouth shut.

    Yeah this story reminded me of the kind of stuff I read up on before going to Guatemala the first time. Except this is in the US, which is pretty crazy even in today's age.

    you need to keep your own council, make your personal decision as to how you conduct your life, and keep your mouth shut about it. Personally, I am not going to be someone's victim. Just saying............
