The woman works at a restaurant and rides the "L" all the time and had never been afraid on the trains. But then she found herself in the middle of one of two disturbances by groups of teens on the North Side over the weekend.
"I've never been scared like this before," said the 27-year-old woman, who asked not to be identified. "We were just minding our own business. ... It was really, really violent."
The woman said she was returning home with her mother Saturday night on the Red Line after a dim sum dinner when a group of girls got on the train at the Monroe station and appeared to want to pick a fight.

"This girl started blowing smoke in my face, and she flicked her cigarette ashes at me," said the woman. "I said: 'You need to put that out,' and the next thing I know there's all these girls that jumped on top of us."
They began punching her face and then went for her hair. She believes they had knives or box cutters, and padlocks possibly placed inside socks.,0,2297490.story

Ah come on lady, it's just kids being kids. Harmless horseplay. I'm glad none of them got seriously hurt.

Times like that, you flee the car and gas is released. The punk scumbags are too busy to notice everyone else leaving and once the car is sealed, it's too late. PEPPER SPRAY TIME!
