    I am going this weekend! Just wondering, if was there, I will be shooting, running for my life or at least help to stop this mad man.

    Well you got to be there to know the answer. If all have reacted instead of running away, maybe less death and injuries.

    Yet to happen here in Singapore but seems to be a following trend with news so widespread. Maybe authorities should start to educate the public on how to react to mitigate casualties.

    This is called firefighting way of solving problem. Very myopic kind of thinking...you wear stab proof when stabbing happens; you ban alcohol when a riot happens, and so on.

    What you should do is to find out what is the real root cause!

    As this type of incidents happens everywhere, if happens here, just use the fire extinguisher on that person. Either use the foam or throw it at that person.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Everything seem normal here except more police presence. However, I find their system rather efficient. Fare also much cheaper than Singapore. I am sure they are going to bankrupt soon since SMRT with their current fare and packed trains cannot make money.

    Public transportation is a necessity, an infra structure. Serving the public should come above making money. If its not sustainable then the government should take over and make it work. They shouldn't be privatised and feed fat share holders to begin with.
