Re: my hero

I thought there were safety devices to stop that happening (the trapped arm, not the bag thief)
He also (the driver) wasn't really watching where he was driving.

Re: my hero

I expect they deliberately don't fit them over there,
it was brill that he clobbered the kid with the bat and only let him off when they got to the cop shop
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: my hero

In the UK that would be an easy prosecution for...
the bus driver and compensation for the victim, sorry, bag snatcher Sad

Re: my hero

Yep the thief would be protected by the full extent of the law ;-(
You are NOT allowed to protect yourself or anyone else, or you maybe sued or prosecuted for gbh against the REAL criminal.

Very few buses do, which results in things like this happening...

On a lighter note I did see a tourist get off a bus in Cambridge wearing a backpack. He stood in the doorway, the driver shut the doors which clamped on his backpack. He went for a ride -thankfully only a short one. And wasn't hurt.  Smiley
