And these are the "new" cameras too. The older ones from when the skytrains were built were in black and white and much much lower resolution.

Once the new HD cameras are installed, it should be much much better.
And of course they will ask for more money.

That's cool and all they gave ICBC the power to collect the fines,but what good does that do when the majority of the people are broke ass who have been riding the skytrain for the last 10 years who don't have a driver's license or own a car,I doubt they wil be buying a car anytime soon.

There is also a statue of limitations on collections,I think it's like 5 years or some shit,I could be wrong.

Scared maybe? We don't know what kind of weapon they may have. I'm sure once someone stepped in to try to stop them, everyone would jump in and help. But it takes courage for that first person to step in and stop those thieves.

I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing, just standing and watch.

suspect #1(picture in OP's post) looks like the guy that scammed me with 500 dollars worth of fake bills... fake bills that even fooled the officers at the police station until they took a UV light to it

More like veryone standing by is thking someone else will help her.To be honest I don't think I will step in but I will call the police and video tape the incident and give to the police later........ Is just the way how tranist handles things make it so that you don't want to help.


I remember maybe a year ago.... a guide dog guding a person to the skytrain and somehow it got dragged by the skytrain when the door close..... transit never compensate anything for it, so if I get injury don't think transit will compensate as well......

Is easy for us to blame the by standers now.

Classic apathy from a pathetic comatose generation. "We must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men."

Some day I hope a punk bitch pulls something like this when I'm around.

Global has reported (on their fb):

"One of the thieves who stole an iPad from wheelchair-bound woman with celebral palsy has been arrested. Police have good lead on suspect #2"



Unfortunately, I am waiting for the report that he has been released from custody....and given probation.

Majority of people in this province do in fact need a Drivers License or some form of ID. You won't be able to renew your ID or License (also could garnish wages given the new legislation). The statue of Limitations on debt collections is 7 years but that is from the date the Agency takes on the debt not the time at which the debt occurred.

Berz out.

Sad that will probably just get a slap on the wrist.
It sucks that bystanders just stood and watched.

Some people just don't want to get involved with something
that would put themselves in any sorry of risk.

And of course if you got inured while fighting the thieves,
Translink wouldn't compensate... It has nothing to do with them.

If thats the case, if this dickbag ever gets caught, all he'll get is a slap on the wrist.
If this is his first offense,then yes he will get a slap on the wrist,regardless of what race he is.

However there is no promise that he won't get his head smashed in by someone that recognizes him on the streets.

I find it unfortunate that aboriginal status is taken into consideration at sentencing. I understand the reasoning that a disadvantaged background may have contributed to the offenders actions and therefore they should be entitled to a lesser punishment, but the judicial system should not be focused on punishing people, but rather reforming them. Allowing someone who has been convicted of a crime to walk free will do nothing to reform them. In the long run, this type of affirmative action hurts the First Nations community.

Unfortunately, it is what it is. The kid who's family died in the appartment fire had a criminal record prior to the fire and has been caught numerous since. Each time he goes to court, he uses his get out of jail free card because he was the lone survivor when his GF and family died in the fire.

Supposedly, they can also apply to the courts to have them banned from going on to the fare paid zones so if they are caught in the future, the police should have more power.
