WMATA bus hijacked, 1 killed

Recommended Posts

To get the full gist of what happened, read these three articles since each highlights different things:



Washington Post


One would think, being Washington DC of all places (Homeland Security and all), WMATA would have a full array of security devices on its fleet.  Not too much of a stretch when lots of problems have occurred, and some DC neighborhoods the buses serve are more than just rough, they're downright war-zones.


Even if this bus had been equipped, it doesn't sound like it would have discouraged the perp.


It'll be interesting to find out if this character has a lengthy rap sheet, and if they'll play up some mental problems or substance addiction to lighten his sentence.
