#1 The Metro Transit Police and Metropolitan Police Department have been distributing the flier, which features a reminder that throwing rocks at vehicles is a crime.

Not if you don't make arrests for it. Which looks to be the policy.
Ah, our nation's capital...

#2 I gotta ask, who thinks this stuff up? Do they really believe that someone who throws rocks at a bus will be deterred by a printed reminder that what they are doing is against the law? Seriously?

#3 Install gunner's hatches, M2 Browning machine guns, 5 cans of ammo per each, and encourage liberal use. Instruct the ridership on the potential hazards of expended brass while entering and exiting. The shi* should taper off dramatically.

#4 Decent idea, Besoeker, but I'd be concerned about who the system put in the gunner's hatch.

#5 Give each driver a shotgun loaded with 1. Rock salt, 2. birdshot,3. buckshot, and 4. solid slug, Pronounce him free to use it as he sees fit.

Severe penalties(Firing, arrest Etc) if he "Looses" the shitgun, or It's ammo, or carries it Unloaded.

Account for "Spent" Ammo.

#6 Time to put signs on the side of the busses:

Rock Free Zone


That's sure to do the trick!

#7 One the bright side - back in the late 80s, it was bullets. So either conditions have (relatively) improved or ammo is getting scarce.

Southeast, if you didn't know or hadn't guessed, being the District of Columbia's festering sore.


A festering sore on a cancer?

#9 @Crazy Fool - You gave me a good laugh this morning with "Rock Free Zone", especially after reading so much bad news in this country this morning. Thank you for the lift.

#10 Wouldn't it be a better reminder if the cops made some arrests instead of just leaving a few fliers at the doughnut shop?
