    Recently, there has been a certain tendency to beat up guys that dedicates to steal the belongings of public transport passengers.
    In Mexico City we have a very ugly kind of public transport called "Combis" which are literal vans.
    I'm someone that almost never uses Combis as I barely fit on regular buses, imagine me trying to fit on one of those.
    Anyways...
    Yesterday it became Trending Topic on Twitter, a fucking rat that intended to steal passengers on a Combi, but things went unexpected:

    Around the 2:10 mark.
    Not so long ago, actually 2 weeks ago, my sister and mom became subject of this felony whilst trying to go to the hospital, so seeing this makes me very, very happy.

    I too have been subject of robbery on public transport.
    Unfortunately (or fortunately) it akways happens when I'm with my family, and they literally has to stop me before I fucking beat up the guy robbing us.

    I mean... I'm nealy 6'3", what could possibly go wrong with guys that are 5'5"?

    That’s ruthless. I would’ve taken his fucking shoes too. That way he can’t get around as easy. He is lucky no one had a gun. This is the type of defense I like to see. Everyone lives and hopefully lessons are learned.

    People on rural zones kills them instead.
    Or they get burnt alive.

    Here in the city they just get a beat up and that's it.
    But maybe... we could do as they do on rural zones.

    I neither understand what drives people to commit such felony.
    As you said.. how desperate a person can be to become a criminal?

    Unfortunately for me, in my country said criminals owns a special trait by an organization of human rights... so if they get caught, Human Rights comes to the rescue because they're people and they have rights.
    Most of the times, said rats leaves jail as soon as Human Rights comes for them.

    That's why my city is so insecure... but people are getting enough of them, so we beat them up instead.

    One of Pearl Jams songs is about how you should never compare rats to humans as rats are way better behaved than humans. If you read the lyrics you will see everything wrong that humans do that rats don't.

    Rats
    They don't eat, don't sleep
    They don't feed, they don't seethe
    Bare their gums when they moan and squeak
    Lick the dirt off a larger one's feet
    They don't push, don't crowd
    Congregate until they're much too loud
    Fuck to procreate till they are dead
    Drink the blood of their so-called best friend
    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare
    They don't scam, don't fight
    Don't oppress an equal's given rights
    Starve the poor so they can be well fed
    Line their holes with the dead ones' bread, no no
    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare
    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs
    They don't compare, rats
    They don't compare, rats
    They don't compare

    Combi.... does make sense of the opening line of


    Anyway as far as being tall. One time I got someone doing an attempted mugging it was a tiny* little I am guessing crackhead (was some form of twitchy "wired" thing, normally have to observe quietly to detect the particular drug) lady that set a dog on me... in the middle of a park in a terrifically poor area around lunchtime in glorious sunshine, at a distance a decent overhand throw/hit with a baseball bat could have broken a police station window.

    *after I had sorted the dog out she swung for me and missed, it was some bull cross thing I was hands on with (it was not trained as an attack dog thankfully, and not the two of them at once) so I was kneeling courtesy of the dog (still have scars of that one to this day) and a straight out punch (not angled up at all) whilst still kneeling hit her in the solar plexus. If I had done that standing it would have been clear of her head.

    Rationality does not tend to enter into it, if nothing else selling the belongings of the average person on public transport is time consuming, risky, not very profitable and the act itself is liable to see you caught. If it is combined with a bit of desperation (never mess with someone that has nothing to lose and all that) it is an even more potent cocktail.

    Equally misdirection and speed. Key to being a thief. Size and fighting ability can help for certain approaches but not all of them.

    That said I am ever wary of vigilante justice.

    Rats are gross. Especially those mutant sewer rats from New York city.

    I have never met that. Went past a gym a while back and at first I thought it was a convention/support group from sufferers of ILS (imaginary lats syndrome) so I guess it is a possibility.

    Loved this story.
    Talking about Vigilante Justice, not so long ago... probably 5 years ago, the same happened on a bus in my city.
    But the guy who was being robbed, take out a gun and shot the muggers on the head.
    It became news because everyone was praising this guy as some sort of hero.
    Actually, people who where interviewed about this (passengers that too got robbed) told the media that this guy pledged only one thing:
    Never told who was the one who killed those as*****
    The police did searched for this guy but never found him.

    @AmandaRose You're right darling :bow: as I've met many who fucks to procreate until they die.

    @x65943 If the guy was 11 feet tall... and he was shorter than you... :unsure: then you're 12 feet tall? :blink:
