Oops forgot my bag

It warms my heart to see this. If only they had "subdued" him a bit harder. Armed robbers are outlaws and thus free game.

The guy who got the gun pointed in his face was lucky as hell

Apparently that guy is a friend of a friend.

Which woman was that screaming and carrying on about needing to get off the bus? I'm going to guess the white hippie chick, but I suppose it could have been either of those two. Pull yourself together, woman!

Seriously, not to get all "ITG" here, but if I had gotten to the point where we were sitting on him, and removed the gun from him, I would be punching him until he was unconscious.  Probably a kick or five to the nuts for good measure.  Seriously, fark that guy.

CSB:
I have a friend who was in a similar situation.  Dude walks right up to him, puts a gun square in his face and demands his wallet.  My friend proceeds to kick the everliving shiat out of him, fists, knees, feet, and a good 'ole fashioned pistol whipping.  The perp got something like 20 years...he then tried to sue my friend because he needed some facial reconstructive surgery, he had several broken ribs, broken wrist, etc, etc.  (yeah, my friend farked him up good, he was in a lot of pain).  The judge threw his ass out of court within minutes of opening statements.

In German sword manuals, they advise students to accept only a broken bone, pierced eyeball, or ruptured testicle as evidence of proper submission. Anything less and there's nothing stopping them from coming at your again full force.

Wait...so none of the people defending themselves had a gun? Where will the righteous indignation be?!

The white hippie chick appears to be one of the people going after the guy?

I've actually ridden that bus, it goes to West Seattle which is a fairly toney neighborhood full of Left Coast Libruls who supposedly pee their pants at the very mention of a firearm if certain elements of Fark are to be believed.

I'm planning my return to Seattle to coincide with the completion of the WB bridge. That'll be in the next 5 years, right?

There are some place in West Seattle I've seriously considered living. I just need to figure out how to afford the mortgage payments.

Nice golf course there. And none of the bridges there are going to be done, ever. That's how we roll, LOL.

You know who needs a punch in the girl-balls?  The chick who, at the end of the video, appears to check her cellphone and then (I think) say 'excuse me' to the guy at the back so she can get her backpack.

Thanks for comin' out lady.

After the gun is pointed in his face it appears he grabs the gun and puts it in his coat pocket.
Almost looks like a training video.

Those passengers showed more restraint than I would have.

I carry a blow torch and pliers in my fanny pack because you never know when you need to go medevil on someones ass.

I kid.

I carry a pistol, and I would have been eating a sandwich like Quincy while cops were digging through his splattered grey matter.

Pretty much this. As long as the perp is holding on to that gun, he's a danger to you and others. Take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and bring the pain.

Or apparently the gunman completely pussing out. He could have easily pulled the trigger and that fool that grabbed the gun would be shot.

I think that's him having the presence of mind to take off his glasses and put them in his pocket.

I think he put his phone / iPod, which is what the guy with the gun wanted, in his pocket.

As for him being shot, I don't think the guy with the gun was expecting any one to challenge him. Sure, if the safety is off, with just jostling around, the gun could have gone off, but it looked like to me, that phone guy grabbed it and forced it to gun guys torso, which is kind of a standard defense move for a gun. at that point gun guy may not have the ability to pull the trigger with the positioning or he just might shoot himself over shooting phone guy, so he doesn't pull the trigger. And then the other passengers are on him pretty quickly.

Oops!

Was going to say this happened to a friend of mine as well, in NYC. Extremely mellow guy, not very big. This guy jumps him and pulls him into an alley and without thinking my friend proceeds to hand his ass to him. Once subdued my friend took the guys wallet.

did anybody else notice that it was only the white people taking down the perp? All the black people scattered.
 
2013-12-22 02:58:49 PM  
Why would you rob someone on a bus? Wouldn't it make the rest of the ride kind of awkward?
 
2013-12-22 03:24:39 PM  
 Its almost always correct to behave just like this video shows. If people like them had been on the planes on 9/11 things would have ended up very differently.

I don't blame them.  They could have easily been accused of being accomplices just because they're wearing the same colors.

Yup, that's what you call fight or flight response.  His brain said "FIGHT MUTHERFARKER!" and he did.  I can't suggest that as a first choice but I'm glad it worked out for him.

Depends on the distance between the barrel and the intended victim. Imagine if the punk had tried this stunt with a rifle.

Incidentally, a knife wins vs. a holstered gun at 20 feet.

\You're cute, keep trying.

It would matter to me if I was on the receiving end of it as I grabbed it.  Click vs. Bang... huge difference.

/ Might matter at the perp's trial too, depending on the law. Loaded vs. unloaded.

I'm laughing at that guy because not only did he get the gun out of the perp's hands, but he then pocketed the gun.

She wasn't helping them subdue him, she was saying "I gotta get my stuff!"
The fight broke out on top of where she was sitting.

I live in a pretty rural area and my buddy and I were behind a car that proceeded to get into a head on collision at 50mph with another car, we stopped and called the cops and they asked if we could stay to do a report so while we were waiting and they were extracting all the people with the jaws of life we ate our subs and chips we just bought while sitting on the guard rail. The state trooper lieutenant comes over to take our statements and she's goes  "well, at least you guys didn't lose your appetites."
 
2013-12-23 01:11:24 PM  
Love that reaction. From "Oh shiat I'm being robbed" to "Thanks for the free gun asshole"  in half a second.
