      I was thinking the same thing – – these drivers have no defense from all the ciminals that could and apparently are riding the bus!

      Arm them with what? These are drivers, they are not trained nor deputized to carry and fire hand guns. If they'll be armed, all the other union groups such as garbagemen, mailmen, and construction workers will cry to be armed as well! Would you feel safe if a bus driver is armed? Bet he would be an absolute bad aim and hit his passengers first before a thug. This senseless idea will bring more lawsuits to the city.
      The constitutions guarantee to bear arms is absolutely outdated, misunderstood, and abused. This is society is no longer the wild west and no longerr are white people slaughtering natives anymore. Amend the contitution and scrap the right to bear arms because we all live in a civil society now.
      Bearing arms is not the solution to violence. Leave the bearing of arms to the trained public safety personnel, its their job. That's what they are paid to do.

    =*= More showing of how chicago crime is getting out of control. Now if CPD is unable to capture this suspect from video cameras on the bus and streets. That it's self would be a crime of poor policing.
