      Video in link. God damn people are insane

      http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/video-show...ocial_facebook

      A woman who objected to a man sitting next to her on a Sydney train pulled out a chisel and threatened to stab him, according to a witness who recorded the terrifying Boxing Day encounter on a mobile phone.

      The woman is shown in the footage advancing towards the man with the weapon and yelling "I'll stab you, dog!", before another male passenger tackles her onto the train seat and disarms her just after midday on Saturday.

      The woman falls onto a young girl, who was sitting on an aisle seat on the the Bankstown Line train.


      A witness said the dispute started because the woman, who was sitting next to the window, objected to the man sitting two seats away from her, on the aisle. There was a vacant seat between the pair.

      Annie Huang, 22, had boarded the train at Campsie with her mother and boyfriend, who were planning to head to the city to go shopping.

      She said the male passenger, who she did not know and who was of Chinese descent, also boarded at Campsie and sat down in the same aisle as the woman.


      "I started hearing her say very rude things to him, like 'F*** off, don't sit next to me, move somewhere else'," Miss Huang said.

      "He wasn't replying, he was just sitting there. She said 'Do you even speak English? Go back to your own country'. That was pretty much the gist of it. By the end of it, she just kept screaming 'Move! Move!"

      Miss Huang said she then started filming the encounter because she was not sure what would happen.


      The male passenger is shown in the footage appearing to lose his temper. He yells at the woman, points at her and takes a step towards her, before the woman leaves her seat and soon pulls the weapon from her pants.

      The woman is shown in the footage saying "Hit a woman, you dog!" while advancing towards the man and making stabbing motions into the air. She is just centimetres from the young girl, who is being shielded by a woman, before a man in a white singlet pushes the alleged offender onto the seat.

      "It shocked me [when the woman pulled out the weapon]," Miss Huang said.

      "My mum was sitting next to me, I tried to move my mum [away]. I was really scared, and it was a huge relief when the guy in the singlet grabbed her and pushed her down."

      Miss Huang said the train stopped at Canterbury train station until police and paramedics arrived.

      Miss Huang said she later spoke to the man in the singlet, who said he could not just sit there while the man was targeted for no reason.

      "He said that the Chinese man did nothing wrong. All he did was sit on the seat, and didn't even sit right next to the lady, and the lady just started yelling at him. He knew he had to do something," Miss Huang said.

      A spokeswoman for NSW police said they were investigating an altercation between a man and a woman on a train at the weekend.

      "Police from Ashfield Local Area Command are investigating the incident and are appealing for anyone who witnessed it, or the events leading up to it, to come forward," the spokeswoman said in a statement.

      Read the story then. More than one witness said she was being a c**t.

      If I encounter someone like that I usually just find a new seat. Generally trying to make yourself physically imposing and acting aggressive toward someone who has told you to leave them alone causes an unfavorable outcome.

      I'm reading this as there were three seats in one row and she had the window seat with the white singlet man on the aisle seat. If you are taking public transit you can't claim a row for one person. She got what she deserved

      Meh, typical crazies on public transit. You have two options in dealing with them, ignore with potential of physically neutralizing the situation if necessary or get up and simply move or go to the next car.

      This. I was on the train once when some woman tried to stab another woman with a screwdriver. Similar to this situation, a stranger promptly took it from her and calmed her down.

      Another outrage-of-the-day thread. Some of you people just look for stuff to get upset about.

      While the referenced article is kind of a trainwreck (pun intended), 'manspreading' is a real thing and guys who can't sit (in a car, on a train, on a plane, or anywhere else) without spreading their knees apart need to either find better underwear, or just stand. Whining about how your balls need 'space' makes you look like a selfish moron who was never taught any social graces.

      These are actual signs in the NY subway cars:

      Probably just paranoid and I am sure unlike carrying a knife it's probably legal.

      The dude though should have backed off.

      He was trying to physically intimidate her in the first part of the video then he gets up and starts to follow her as she walks away.

      Screw these feminazis trying to ban masculinity. Part of being a man is showing everyone how big you balls are by keeping your legs spread as wide as possible and occupying as much space as possible.

      i would like to amend this.


      guys who can't sit without spreading need to learn how to do so without taking up too much space. it is entirely possible to give the boys some room without taking up more than one spot.

      Look at it this way, if you're on a bus, subway, etc. during the summer, do you really want to look over at another guy's hairy clockweights? Hell no. Sure, the boys need some space, but that doesn't mean to let them go free range.
