A few weeks ago I was travelling on the Cross Country service from Birmingham NS to Leeds. It was a HST 7 coach. As the train was pulling out of the station a rather intoxicated man jumped up out of his seat and pulled the door window down and threw himself out and onto the platform narrowly missing being dragged under the train. The station staff took him away! The train continues out of the station initially oblivious to what has happened and then about 1/2 a mile outside the station comes to a stop. The train manager announces there has been an 'incident' and the train waits about 20 minutes before continuing. This must have caused chaos on the network and disrupted my journey. Now when I was in China a few years ago I was travelling on a rather crammed bus. The bus pulls up at the side of the road, the doors open and a man steps off the bus. However a motor bike passes between the bus and the side of the road and knocks the man over as he is stepping off the bus leaving him injured at the side of the road. The bus driver looks in his mirror to see that the man is off his bus (the force of the motor bike throws the man off his bus) and he drives off. No disruption to my journey. Which is the right approach? --- old post above --- --- new post below --- Another example. My train pulls into Derby Station and I can see that the train manager is speaking with what appears to be a 'fare dodger'. The 'fare dodger' is apprehended by station staff and the train manager speaks to them. However the 'fare dodger' will not let the train manager get back onto his train moving between the train and the train manager. The station staff do not lay a finger on the 'fare dodger' presumably as they are not allowed to. This goes on for about 25 minutes delaying my journey. I (and several other people) rang the police and when they arrive after 25 mins they take the man away and the train manager in a very professional way continues onwards to Birmingham but now about 30 mins late. Now in China I am sure the man would have been immediately restrained and no disruption to my journey. Which is the right approach? and are there other examples people have seen?
