Delta Employees Attacked On MARTA Train

ATLANTA -- Two Delta Airlines employees were attacked on a MARTA train

MARTA police said they were investigating the incident. A witness said he watched the violent attack unfold Sunday.

"We were intimidated. Everyone was terrified. People were trying to run, but there was nowhere to run," the man, who requested anonymity, told Channel 2's Erica Byfield.

Around midnight, a MARTA train pulled up to the Garnett Station in Downtown Atlanta, authorities said. The witness said up to 30 people boarded the southbound train.

"Once the doors opened, it was like a bum rush of people," he told Byfield. "The next thing you know, they started just beating him. There was blood everywhere. People were hollering and screaming," he said.

A MARTA police report identified two victims as Delta Airlines employees. The report said one victim had a soda can smashed in his face and his wallet stolen, while the other was punched repeatedly in his face.

The witness said the attackers were teens chanting "B. F. P. L."

"I don't know if that's a gang," the witness said.

By the time the train made it to West End stop, some riders were desperate to get off, but the car doors would not open, the witness said.

"So basically we were just trapped," he said.

Thank you for posting this! I want to know what BFPL is. There are black liberation idiots out there right now who want to have a weekend of violence. I’m wondering if this is the beginning.

Let them try this garbage with me.

As good an argument as I’ve ever seen to get your CCW. A .45 cal hole blown in one of those hooligans would have quieted things down in a hurry, gang or no gang.

Gawd, but I hate big cities.

A quick google on BFPL gives the impression its a Hip Hop band in Atlanta.

I last rode on MARTA during the ‘96 Olympics. I’m glad that I haven’t had to do so again.

Savages. And cowed people just sat there and watched. This would not happen in Texas. Someone with a gun would be there, and that’s why we love living here.

From the article : The witness said the attackers were teens chanting "B. F. P. L." "I don't know if that's a gang," the witness said. By the time the train made it to West End stop, some riders were desperate to get off, but the car doors would not open, the witness said. "So basically we were just trapped," he said. The witness told Byfield he saw the teens exit the train at the Oakland City stop. "For people to have to witness that it is ridiculous," he said.

Really? For people to 'witness that' is ridiculous? How about the violent acts committed on the two victims? Jeez Louise.....

I used to ride them when I flew out of the airport, but not anymore. Not matter what time of the day you go, you always see crazy stuff when riding Marta.

Now wait a minute here! There is no evidence these attackers were My People! They were a gang, who committed violent acts. Perhaps they were white!

MARTA wasn't safe for white people 20 years ago.

i wonder if they picked the Delta people because they wouldn't have a gun on them.

I was a attacked by a gang with knives aboard the Boston subway (my fiance and 12 year old sister were attacked as well).

People ran, and so did the MBTA workers. No one helped us.

This wasn’t a “gang,” unless you mean a gang of normal black Atlanta teenagers.

Thankfully, no. Based on the Wikipedia article, that would make a horror film.

One day some of these feral little gang scum are going to try this cute trick on somebody sporting a Glock 22 with a extra reload and they will get what they richly deserve and meet their maker (the Devil).

Happily, there will concurrently also be about two dozen less 0bama voters and welfare scam artists stinking up the country!

MARTA has been a killing machine since it started.

The reality is that you have a city about 3/4 Amish, and running a main subway line through it only means trouble.

Yeah Sky...(from WikiP)re: Freaknik Atlanta

...In some areas, the massive increase in cars on the road caused traffic to come to a halt, and the revelers got out of their cars and started roaming the streets. This in turn caused panic in some areas where people could not get home from their jobs, and they were trapped in areas where many revelers started harassing and yelling obscenities at non-black residents. There were also several reports of violence, looting, rapes and other sexual assaults. All this showed Freaknik in a negative light...

Yeah...I guess that sort of behaviour could be viewed in a “negative light”...by some folks ;-)

I'm assuming the Delta workers were white but who knows....all I know is that a white person should never live,work,drive thru, eat in, or travel public transportation in any areas that have a lot of non whites...

learn it people...

its just the facts....we are moving more and more to a segregated country and there are going to be middle class and value based blacks who are going to have to make a choice..

Update:

Flight attendant Parker Stanea, 28, told officers a diminutive black male, no taller than 5′4″, emerged from the pack of teens to hit him over the left eye with a soda can. Stanea was pushed to the ground by the other youths and his wallet, stolen.

His friend, Jose Souza, said he was assaulted by the same suspect, according to the MARTA police incident report. The pink-clad teen punched him in the lip, the 24-year-old Delta employee said, but before they could take anything two unidentified male passengers intervened.

Not sure if the law has recently changed on this or not, but MARTA was one of the many places in GA where you could not lawfully carry your legal weapon (unless you were a cop of course). If you used a firearm to defend yourself from these high spirited well meaning youts, YOU would be the felon.
