The Evening Post breathlessly reports this story, as if it's a surprise that kids in Knowle West are pelting buses with rocks.
Buses operating on Bristol's streets have been attacked by missile-throwing vandals nearly 200 times in the past year.
Some of the attacks were by children as young as five.
Three parts of south Bristol – Hengrove, Hartcliffe and Knowle West – have been identified by the city's main bus operator, First, as the worst areas for the attacks.
Of the 193 incidents of objects being thrown at buses in the Bristol network, 46 incidents occurred in Knowle West – a rate of almost one a week.
Oh but don't tell me, it's not the kid's fault, they've got "nothing to do". I guess we should "engage with them", and find out why they're doing it?
They're doing it because they're fucking feral chav scum, who have been brought up by workshy, feckless fucking oafs who can't teach their kids right from wrong, because they don't know themselves. Anyone who even thinks about trying to defend someone who hurls bricks through a bus window needs their fucking head examining.
"Apart from the obvious risks to passengers and staff, the cost to our business from incidents in Knowle has been £23,000 over the last year."
And who do you think pays for it? The non-chav residents of Bristol, of course. The chavs don't use the buses, or they wouldn't be pelting them with rocks.
First bus should just stop the services to Knowle West, then maybe the non-chav people who need the bus and are unfortunately enough to live there might rise up against the chavs.
