Bus criminal?

Posted on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 1:38 PM

Okay so yea it was about a month ago I was on the #1 bus heading to my buddy's house. When, all of a sudden, a cop car from the other lane of Barrington st. cuts in front of our bus with all its lights flashing and its siren blasting about. Cop cars surround the bus and cops are running up side it with their hands on their gun holdsters. They board the bus and yank two guys off search through their bags then let them reboard. No explanation for why the stopped the bus for 45 minutes which cramped up traffic in the middle of after work rush hour. Anyways after all the craziness plus the bus driver's 20 minute smoke, one of the cops climb's aboard and says simply: "sorry for the inconvenience folks we were lookin' for a guys who coulda hurt someone but we're too late", then he's gone with the rest of his squad. No explanation, just the classic canadian "sorry 'bout that".

I arrive an hour late to my destination all shaky with adrenaline and anger and fear that there was a guy probably sitting a seat in front of me that could have easily turned this into another Greyhound bus incident.

---45 minutes late to jake's. >:OK
