  4. What? says:

    A game of rock, paper, scissors turned nasty?

    one “brandished a rock and the other male brandished a bladed article,”

    Sounds like a game of rock, paper, scissors got out of hand.

    More disruptions of the busses. Glad a have a car!!

  7. Wow says:

    Buses ran quite smoothly… I was there after the fact. Area cornered off with police forensics doing their job.

  8. Eye Never Shut says:

    What needs to be done with criminals like this, is to catch them and implant them with life-long tracking chips. Just like how SPCA tracks dogs. This should deter criminals from crime, when faced with this scenario. And that way, the public and police will know where these people are all the time, instead of having to worry and wonder where they might pop up and assault or rob someone.

      “the public and police will know where these people are all the time, ”

      no, that’s not how it works. RFID chips implanted into pets are not ‘tracked’.
      I bet you think GPS satellites “track” you as well.

    • Lol says:

      Maybe they should implant a shocker on ppl who come up with dumb ideas

    • PBanks says:

      Sounds like something out of a dystopian fantasy novel. Implanting chips into people against their will?

      • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

        Like it or not…they’ve already started and it’s coming this way…All in the guise for your safety they’ll say…

    Is this the incident where the officers were dealing with an injured party and one of their bosses berated them for not wearing their hats?????? Shambolic.
