I was the only person to do something on a 4 am night bus on friday night near Finnsbury Park when a blonde was being beaten by her large black boyfriend for trying to push his passed out ass up because they were going to miss their stop. He slammed her head up against the bus window with his hand on her throat two seats away from me. I was in shock but it only got worse from their she fought back but he landed blows, I shouted to stop. Nothing happened. After it was apparent none of the men on the full double decker were going to do anything I acted. I ran down stairs banging on the bus drivers window telling him a girl was being beat up.

His first response was "we have close circuit cameras". Neat so when she is dead maybe you will get a conviction? I ran halfway up the stairs to make sure it was going on and oh yess now he had trown her in the eisle and kicking her. I pleaded with the bus driver to stop the bus so we could stop the fight and get the guy off the bus. after another stop he complied. he headed up the stairs with his hand on the knife holder on his belt, but by that time the extreme violence had calmed somewhat as she was not able to get up really. The black bus driver was immediatly able to break through to the asshole and surprisingly he left with out any incident and started walking up the hill towards Manor House Station.

I went back upstairs to see how she was doing. She had a large visible lump on her forehead and a split lip along with some swelling on hear cheeks, I was surprised she was still concious to be honest after all the head trauma she took. Two rather large Irish ladies who were visiting and I got her off the bus, but not before some Asian (when I say asian I mean from India or Pakistan as that is how they are refered to here) jerk was yelling at ME FOR STOPPING THE BUS CAUSE HE "HAS TO WORK IN THE MORNING"  and wanted to get home.  I could not believe it. Dessensitsed to the MAX. Sorry you were incovinced so you did not have to watch a girl beaten to death on ride home and had to wait 5-10 minutes for me to convince the bus driver to stop the bus so we could get the monster off. I shouted at him "Are you HUMAN!????" He got offended and stood up and yelled shit back, but that is all I wanted to say.

She apparently lived with her abbusive boyfriend and would have gone home with them, but  we insisted she have an ambulence check her out and go somewhere else as she was going into shock.

It took about 20-30 minutes for the police to show up which surprised me since I see them constanly with here and another 10 minutes longer for the ambulance.

While waiting she broke down saying it was not the first time and that her good friend had told her parents recently that this guy was abussive. She very much wanted to call her parents but they were on Holiday as they say here. She sobbed "why does he do this to me, I love him!"  The Irish women rightly repeated many times she needed to move on and make this the last time. As I sat there with my arm around her as she cried wearing my jacket split lip I think she came to a realisation that it was wrong what had happened. Where in the begining she did not want "to cause drama"

When the ambulance got there she got in and did not come out. One of the Irish ladies got in with her and when she came out before it left she said they thought she had a serious concusion. I was busy describing the situation to one of the officers along with the perp and my disgust for the willingess of the herd to keep in line during something so obviously wrong.


Now this won't sour me on London but just confirms what I already know: big cities desensitize.

I refuse to not act when I see something that wrong.


please whether in your professional life or personal life do the same

I always carry some form of weapon with me, usually a small knife.  Never had to use it and hope I never do, because if I draw it then things will get bloody.  Always try to calm the situation first with force being the last resort.

Its hard overcome the fear of stepping into a fight, but you'll be amazed at what you can do when you overcome that fear and become fearless.  Most humans subcounsciously detect fear and/or lack there of and even a heavily drunk person can... 

Always remember: If you step into a fight, there are no limits to far far it goes.  Don't dish out petty punches to the face, give the asshole a shot to their throat.  Take them out quick and get it done with.

Holder was a disgrace to justice under Reno and triple the disgrace under Obama.  Any attorney with a shred of professional ethics and moral character would vacate their position under this (mis) Administration.

Whenever I run into some hapless AUSA, I always poke my finger in their chest and tell them I wouldn't hire them to hose out a KOA shithouse. I double dog dare them to arrest me for assault.

Brave agents in the field building cases for nothing.

Justice is not blind. 

She's now a turned-out whore left bleeding in a ditch on the side of the road after Bush and Obama.

The enthusiasm for Obama seems to be dropping like a rock in these parts...at least when it comes to reaching in your pocket and pulling out cash.  Donations from the little individual donors in this neck of the woods is about as low as I have seen it....not a good sign for the Dems next cycle.


On the other hand, it may be because of how screwed up his opposition is.  Time will tell.  Perhaps the Republicans will nominate Cain....he may be the one most able to actually give Obama a run for his money.

The mortgage crisis is so 2008.....

I noticed that Goldman Sachs is now green.  Investors must be celebrating the huge, world record profits which GS must have made on Dan Norcini's infamous "Ratio Trade".  Now they have switched to the long side and will probably make even more money this quarter than anyone has imagined.

Gold is green, XRT is green.

Lows are probably in for the rest of the year.

I think it is not at all surprising and I thought they should have understood it all by now that the purpose of regulatory, judicial and all politically chosen positions of authority are there for the express purpose of aiding corruption and protecting the corrupt.


Holder has been doing his job perfectly, surely.


I think much more important to the American people is that Julian Assange be threatened and persecuted if possible, regardless of there being any law that applies to him. Holder was doing his job beating his chest of Assange so needed the Carbonite rest. Now it is up to the military to waterboard some incriminating information out there little prisoner. Get assange at all costs.


The corrupt destruction of the US and Global economy by a bunch of corrupt banksters is not important to TPTB.

The fact that Holder was the prime driver (with Clinton) of the Marc Rich pardon, what could have anyone expected?  Hmmm.  I wonder how many shares/warrants of Glencore are in Holder's name in an offshore account?

“You need a massive prosecutorial effort,” said Solomon Wisenberg, a white-collar defense attorney at Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Washington and a former federal prosecutor. “I don’t see evidence that it’s happening. If we were talking baseball, it would be at the AAA level.

barnes & Thronburg just happens to be the same law firm that protected Madison Center in South Bend, IN for YEARS...maybe some time should be spent researching just how effective they are in defending the public against "white-collar" issues... funny how locals in South Bend can't even find legal help against Madison Center/B&T, due to....conflicts of intrest.

Deep Capture = "your" politicians and the 'regulators' they appoint are bought off and paid for by those they're supposed to watch and punish, when appropriate.

Only a fundamental revolution disrupting deep capture could reverse the warp speed decline of the Republic, at this point.

What about Preet Bharara ?

U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York (NYSD) at the Southern District Court of New York at Foley square, Manhattan.

Chief judge there is Loretta A. Preska.


I wonder if the courts in your failing and crumbling U.S. democracy are just clown shows.


It's time to fuck the Blankfeins and Dimons of this world into their rotten Wallstreet asses.

The ball is in your corner, America.


It's also time to heckle these clowns and shout them down at the respective annual shareholder meetings.

Why was it possible in 2009 to shout down politicians in townhall meetings protesting agains the Obama health care law, but it's not possible to do the same in shareholder meetings with the very people who caused all the financial mess ?


What the fuck ?


Why do you constantly export these TV series and franchises like "Law & Order" here to Germany, in order to show us how great and admirable your judicial system is, and then in reality when you dig deeper and take a closer look behind the grand illusion it's all just a joke and nothing more than hot air.


The symbol of America is the burger.

On the outside it looks tasty, but neither does it contain any nutritional value, nor does it give you longterm saturation. It's all just inflated nothingness that comes at a hefty price nonetheless.


America is no role model and certainly not the beacon of hope.

There's nothing the world could learn from you.
