When a couple of drunk, knife-wielding out-of-towners tried to cause trouble on an L.A. Metro bus Thursday, a group of locals shut them down, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Cell phone videos captured by a witness and posted to Instagram show a group of bus riders trying to restrain two men, who said they were from Chicago, after they pulled a knife out and tried to start a fight with some L.A. riders.

“You talk too much,” one bus rider says in the first video while attempting to pin one of the men. “This is L.A. … ! Get your a** up out of here with that bulls**t. Disrespecting people on this bus.”

“Ain’t nobody disrespecting!” the man replies.

Sheriff’s officials told the Times the men were intoxicated when they boarded the Metro Orange Line Thursday afternoon at 3:25 p.m. The bus was heading to North Hollywood.

At some point during the trip, the men “got into it with two bus patrons,” Ramon Montenegro, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Transit Policing Division, told the Times.

That’s when one of the out-of-towners pulled out a knife, Montenegro said.

“I got nervous, my heart started beating, but I was more focused on capturing the moment, the video,” Orlando Romero, a witness who filmed the altercation on his cell phone, told KABC-TV.

Romero said the fight began after one of the men claiming to be from Chicago was drunkenly harassing an L.A. passenger. The East Hollywood resident said the drunken man was the one with the bloodied face in the video.

As the fight grew increasingly more violent, Romero said the bus driver furiously honked the horn to alert police.

L.A. riders teamed up to subdue the man and take the knife out of his hands. The rider who grabbed the knife later handed it over to a security officer, according to the Times.

The out-of-town suspects eventually exited the bus and entered a Metro Red Line train in North Hollywood, still bloodied from the fight.

They didn’t get far. According to the Times, deputies quickly spotted the pair and arrested them on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Montenegro said.

The man who allegedly pulled the knife was taken to an local hospital, where he was treated for minor cuts and bruises. Officials told KABC that it did not appear that anyone was stabbed Thursday.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.

      Ô. Jéhovah trace le chemin de ma vie;
      car en vous je met ma confiance entière.
      Vos paroles se révèlent à mon oreille.
      Je voudrais être prêt à vous servir toute au long de ma vie.
      La source de mes secrets, vous est révelé devant vous;
      votre justice est comme la lumière du soleil en plein midi.
      Seul mon Dieu peut discerner les actions de mon Âme;
      les secrets de mes pensées et de celles de mes actions.
      Ô mon Dieu Jéhovah , je voudrais recevoir l'honneur 
      de la protection du Dieu de mon Salut. 
      J'aimerais recevoir l'eau de ta source pour m'abreuver 
      comme un chameau avant le grand pèlerinage de ma foi.
      Devant vos yeux se dessine la quête de ma victoire;
      Car Jéhovah est grand et infiniment digne de louanges.
      La grandeur de votre sagesse et de votre intelligence est inscrutable.
      Je voudrais rendre grâce à Jéhovah et m'unir à tous les justes et humbles de la terre.
      Tous ensemble exaltons le Nom glorieux de notre Dieu d'amour.
      Les œuvres de notre Dieu Jéhovah sont grandioses, à tout jamais.
      Hallélouyah
      Ô. Jéhovah voulez-vous protèger votre serviteur;
      afin que je vive et que j’obéisse à vos paroles?
      Ouvre mes yeux pour que je vois clairement
      les choses merveilleuses de votre loi qui sont inscrites
      à l'intérieur des paroles de votre livre merveilleux.
       
      Je ne suis qu’un étranger dans le pays de la terre.
      Ô mon Dieu ne me cache d'aucune manière la beauté 
      de vos préceptes qui gardent vos serviteurs en vie.
      Bénis soit celui qui me révèle le chemin que je dois parcourir;
      le désir que manifeste mon âme qui est attaché à ma poussière.
       
      Je voudrais connaître le secret de préserver mon âme;
      ce cadeau inestimable du seul vrai Dieu; ce lien d'appartenance que je dois préserver au gré de ma vie comme à la prunelle de mes yeux.
      Je voudrais brûler constamment de désir pour tes jugements;
      car les jugements de mon Dieu révèle sa grandeur.
       
      Ô. Jéhovah réprimandes les présomptueux,
      les hypocrites qui dévient de la beauté de tes commandements.
      Éloigne de moi la dérision et le mépris de ce monde,
      car je veux obéir à tes rappels et je veux être soucieux de garder 
      mon âme de toutes violences et de toutes souillures de ce monde.
      Même si les princes de ce monde se réunissent 
      pour parler contre tes serviteurs;
      Tes serviteurs méditent sur vos prescriptions;
      unie à votre amour comme un seul, nous sommes attachés à vos rappels ;
      Tous ceux qui sont avec toi au mon Dieu sont mes conseillers.
      L'humilité et ma douceur garde mes yeux éveillés à lire votre parole, jour et nuit; car votre parole est la source de la lumière qui fera briller mon âme au jour de votre salut.
      Ô. Jéhovah fait briller ta justice et ton droit comme l’aurore du soleil en plein midi.
      Les descendants de ton salut seront puissant sur la terre.
      Gloire et honneur soit rendu à notre Dieu Jéhovah. 
      Bénis soit le Dieu unique de notre Salut
      Hallélouyah.
