Excuse me? What does race have to do with someone's behavior? If a person is a sociopath, a person is a sociopath, it doesn't matter what race that person is.

This happens all over the nation. There was a woman in Philadelphia who got angry with a passenger because the passenger commented about her abusing her child. The woman felt slighted, and got some people to shoot into the bus.

It happens in some cities a whole lot more than others. Trust me. Even so, does that justify it for you?

I wasn't trying to justify anything. I was saying that this happens everywhere. This is why it is no shock to me anymore when it happens. Ironically, I used to ride the bus alot. Never saw violence of any kind anywhere on those buses(when I was riding them).

I agree with that. I still use transit and thing do happen the systems I use as well. KCMO does have an above average level of thugish behavior though, at least compared to most of the cities I like.
