I wish I was on this bus when this happened. The beating and then some, would have been kindly returned!

Goodness sake, how sad!
You really have to be careful these days! You just never know where other's mental state is...especially with so many under stress these days. I know they said this guy had some mental disorder!! But still........It is sad that we really need to watch our surroundings in public places.

Thank goodness for those who stepped in to help and protect her!!
Also helping that guy by holding him down from doing any more harm to someone else and himself!!!

That's just sad on so many levels. This is one of the few instances where I advocate playing superhero.
