Special thanks to the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office for referring me to some information which I used for the jumping off point for this research. Maybe Gusman isn’t so bad.
So, for whatever reason, you have to use public transportation. Maybe it’s just temporarily while you’re in a bigger city than you’re used to or maybe you ride regularly. But, with the ongoing Browning Down of American society and the tendency of trouble-making Negroes to terrorize Whites in public spaces, I thought an in-depth look at public transportation safety might be a good idea.
First, some background. In the last two years, incidents of interracial crime on public transportation have made the news several times. Statistics have been made very difficult to find, but I’m betting the average subway car or the crosstown bus is one of the less secure places for the average White commuter. Hell, even black DRIVERS are dangerous.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ National Crime Victimization Survey, almost 200,000 violent incidents occurred on public transportation between 2004 and 2008.
Note: Under Eric Holder, offender statistics have been heavily censored. In many reports, statistical information about offenders now excludes race, though the races of the victims are reported.
Some recent cases:
So we’ve laid some foundation. Buses are dangerous places for White people (and everybody else). At least, it’s safer to assume the four black teens who just hopped aboard are possibly dangerous than to just tuck your head down and pretend they’re choir boys who can’t see you. Because, Whitey, they ALWAYS see you.
Also, race aside, homeless people and mentally ill wackjobs ride public transportation to keep warm and dry, so it’s a risky proposition all around.
So. Let’s get started.
1. Be Aware–First, GET THOSE GODDAMN EARBUDS OUT OF YOUR EARS AND KEEP THEM OUT. Second, it’s a bad idea to catch up on sleep here; stay awake. Don’t get distracted by books. Be alert, eyes up. Look at people as they board, but don’t stare. Know who’s close and who’s far. Know who’s moving and who’s standing. Know what’s going on around you. Don’t commute intoxicated.
2. Be Armed–Sure, some modes of transport say “no weapons” on the door. But, really. Do you think Laquoneisha left her sharpened ‘fro pick at home just because the sticker says so? No. Get your concealed carry, get some combat shooting training and make it a part of your life. If you live in a city dangerous enough for you to be reading this, you’re overdue anyway. Just Google “self defense handgun class ” and then your state or city. You’ll be surprised how many are out there. Make sure the instructor is an NRA member and instructor and, if possible, a member of the US Concealed Carry Association. And, remember, if guns just won’t work for you, there are alternatives.
Consider doing some self-defense training; special classes for commuters are available. From my research, it seems some Krav Maga classes train for “onboard a bus” self-defense situations.
3. Use The Buddy System–If you can, ride with a partner and watch each other’s backs. Try putting an ad on Craigslist, maybe, or your college paper. You can put a flyer up in your building, if you’re an unfortunate big-city apartment dweller. DON’T put your exact destination or your real name or number. Use a throwaway email account and just list the line and general time of day. DON’T meet the person alone or invite the person over the first time and be sure to check his/her credentials.

4. Secure Your Valuables–Women should not carry a visible purse. Do not let your electronic devices be seen; set your phone to vibrate and don’t use it where The Brown Cloud can see it. Wallets should not bulge in pants pockets. Talk your significant other into letting you wear a “dummy ring” for your commute (animals love shiny things). No necklaces, no pendants WHILE you’re riding. Put them on at work or your destination. Get creative: an entire market exists out there because of America’s crime problem. Keep your belongings tucked high and tucked inside. Keep your shopping bags OFF your lap and tucked AWAY from the aisle; a window seat is good for this. (See below)
5. Pick Your Seat Wisely–If you can, sit up front as close to the driver as possible for several reasons. First, he or she has the radio and is trained to direct the police to where trouble happens. Second, because the security camera is up there. And, also, because an exit is nearby. BUT BE AWARE: a common practice is for thugs to stand as if they are going to get off at a stop and then quickly grab something off your lap as they jump out. So, see number four above.
A good rule of thumb: sit in the front third of the bus, against a window.
5a. If You Are Forced to Stand–Be aware that a sudden commotion nearby could be a distraction. Keep your eyes on any trouble, but be aware that a pickpocket might be working with a partner. This is where tucked valuables helps. If you spot a pickpocket or feel one working, announce it loudly to put people on guard.
6. Keep Your Eyes on Your Stop–If it’s late and your stop is deserted (or teeming with Diversity), consider riding to a safer-looking stop. Nothing is worth more than your safety; if you are late, you’ll still be alive. Bus stops are notoriously dangerous. Tell the driver or operator you want to wait. Find out if there are designated “safe stops” with lighting and phones in your transit line.

7. KNOW THE SCHEDULE–History is rife with stories of people ending up stranded in dangerous areas because they didn’t realize they were on that line’s last run of the night. Some cities stop public transportation altogether after a certain hour– know if that is the case where you are. Most transit systems have maps and schedules. Pick some up and keep them handy.
