Seattle Metro bus riders overtake man robbing a passenger at gunpoint | World news | theguardian.com The guy with the glasses is lucky he didn't get shot.. Very quick reflexes and some potential martial art skills where he maneuvered the man's arm in a position which resulted in him losing power of his hand and dropping the gun .. It all happened so fast it's hard to even tell how exactly the robber managed to lose control of his weapon. However, had he had done one thing wrong, he would have had a bullet in his face or gut. The robber also was caught offguard and didn't expect such a quick lunge from a guy who looked almost docile and harmless. Had a trained person with a firearm been on the bus, very likely this idiot robber would have had his brains handed to him as he so carelessly and naively went around pointing his gun at various passengers. He obviously figured he was going up against cowardly people who would not resist him and who would also be unarmed. Robbing all the passengers on a bus of their phones is not the easiest feat to pull off.
