    Four teenagers have been arrested. Disgusting attack.

    Edit: Apologies - missed that the story linked pointed to the actual arrests. This has been heavily in the news in the past day or so.

    Another bus attack. Did someone say "no-go zone"?

    Sad that London has so many CCTVs. Would be easier to grab one of those twits, bash 'em around, knock a tooth or a whole row out by way of shoving their head into the pavement.

    Their punishment should be to kiss each other in public square. Then prison time will give them the full experience.

    I saw this on Twitter and wept. I don't understand how people can be so cruel.

    Maybe because humans are animals.

    No. Animals don't attack just for sport.

    It seems similar to what other primates do.

    Probably driving :).

    I may be wrong but I didn't think the bus was driven from the upper deck ?

    Poor girls. It’s this sort of thing that reminds us why Gay Pride is still such an important movement. Far too many homophobic morons out there that are willing to do this sort of thing. I hope this muppets get a decent sentence and aren’t out in a couple of months.

    What do you expect the bus driver to do in this case?

    Double decker if I am correct, so he was probably downstairs.
    At any rate, unless you’re trained, don’t intervene other than calling the cops. (Plus, as far as we know the driver could be a 60+ yo individual with medical issues)

    Bus drivers don’t get out to tackle confrontations and are usually inside a sealed cab for their own safety. He most likely pressed the panic button which alerts the police.

    ‘Our laws’? He would be well within his rights to defend passengers but I doubt he wants the risk for £18k a year. Bus drivers in London see so much trouble, it’s best to let the police deal with it.

    Well America did unfortunately spread some of its ‘suing culture’ onto us but it’s nowhere near as bad as you have it.

    I don't see this as an LGBT issue. It appears to be nothing more than a bunch of punk kids who were looking for trouble. Nothing more.
