If you mean by physically aggressive, then I'd move away to protect myself. But not all mentally ill people are crazy or bad. I know, because I'm one of those "crazy" people They're just as much as human as you and the next person are. We have thoughts and feelings and needs just like the rest of society does.

Yes, we do, but if the person was being violent, like I said, call 911 or call a mental health hotline. They are out there, and people can get help for any problem that they are having. One of the guys I used to date was schizophrenic, and I had to contact his brother to tell him to get his brother to the hospital to get help because I couldn't help him, but there were psychologists and psychiatrists that could. I told him to get help as soon as possible before things got any worse. Things like this happen. He just needed help, and once he got on the right medications and got some help, he would be fine. Actually, my boyfriend might have ADHD, and a lot of us knew that he might have, but it just means that it's hard for him to focus or stay still. He's a smart man, he just needs something to calm himself down.

No crazy person don't know what they are doing. Unless that guy is normal that he pretends to be crazy that's the time you can confront him about his crazy behavior.

I take the bus every day and there are a lot of crazy people out there. I always try to sit close to the door and make sure I can get out easy if something happens.

Its scary when there are crazy people inside the bus. How come this happened in your place? The police should make an action about this. How can you sit down in a bus if besides you are crazy people. Can you imagine terrible situation may happened anytime.

I will stay away from them because as one of the mylotter said, they are unpredictable. But I do pity them in such a way, why they gone crazy. There must be a reason.

Definitely there is a story and reason behind crazy people. What we can do is to avoid them or help them to be treated in the mental hospitals.

On a public bus I would do the same thing I would do with a drunk person or a really mad person. I would move as far away as possible. Or sit as close to the driver as possible. Once I got of the bus a block early to get away from a very annoying drunk.

I'd move out of the way to protect myself then I would use my phone to call the paramedics. I would like to think that those good Christian folk around me would send up a prayer for the person and offer some help. It's funny, in situations like this you rarely find Christians....

I find the word crazy to be an offensive word. I'm sure you don't mean it to be offensive, but I hung up on a friend last year for calling me crazy because I have depression. I didn't like it and told her if she ever called me that again, we would never be friends again. All of us have varying degrees of weird behavior at times. If someone was appearing dangerous, then I would be leery.. but just someone with a mental disorder no... because I have a mental disorder.. my daughter has a mental disorder... and most people i know have some kind of mental disorder whether they are treated or not.. such as depression.. it's a mental disorder.

Person with mental disorder did not harm anyone depending what stage of disorder they have and I think no need to be fearful in those person instead give them food to eat. Because I know they are going inside the vehicle to ask for food... When my kid and me walking into the street to buy food for dinner in one of the canteen nearby. My kid saw a mental disorder person and ask me to give the food we buy because he is pity with the person...I have no choice but to follow what my kid ask me to do. I give the food which is suitable for us to eat in that evening...Were back again to the canteen and buy food for dinner... But sometimes we don't avoid to go away from those people because of their behavior that suddenly hit anyone...

I am grateful that public transportation is a option and not a must. I still sometimes catch a train in my city if the stop is close to my destination. I recommend carrying a small device to protect yourself just in case. I have(mase) just one spray should calm the crazies. People are unpredictable especially when they forgot there MEDS.

Of course there is a possibilities that crazy person will harm you and others. Just avoid that person because you don't know his behavior. The best things you can do is to report that to the police if he is violent. Crazy person should put in proper place like mental hospital so that they will be treated properly.

I would sit as far as possible or even get off if it proved most convenient, because there is a possibility that you could really get hurt and because he is mentally disabled he could get away with it

If he got potential to be dangerous then I will avoid him as I can or simply ignore him. Sometimes they are okay but most of the time they are not. We are scared of them and they too feel the same towards us. So better get away first before something take place. How could they let that guy into public transport?? I wonder if he got money to pay the fee.(^^)

I would stay away from them because they are unfortunately unpredictable. If they became violent or started to hurt themselves then I would call the police. I know that people with mental disorders can't cope in society so they should be in a facility that helps them with their day to day activities.

The man may be not normal in his behavior but it doesn't mean he is dangerous. I don't think showing him you are afraid will make him feel better... If you know how to defend yourself , you don't have to stay away , maybe he can talk normally and he has some disorder in his brain. As a society , we have to understand all of the people and how to handle them. What would you do if many people were staying away from you or don't really listen to you ? Some people use this kind of behavior to make someone feel less normal and bad about himself . Think about it.You develope some thoughts about someone without proving them (by trying to know him) its like prejudice.

A deranged, crazy person almost always will cause you harm. Because he is not in his proper mind, his actions will be unpredictable and dangerous. It is best to avoid and keep our distance. When faced with this man, the practical thing to do is to walk or run away from him, because the law says he will not be liable for his own actions. Let the men in uniform and the staff of a mental institution take care of him.

I am just curious if this "crazy" man was actually harming or potentially harming the people around him. If he is, I would keep as much distance between me and him so that if he really does become abusive and act strangely, at least I'm as far away from him as I possibly can. But I'm just baffled at how such a man can be allowed entry into a public vehicle, which could potentially cause uneasyness and fear among the other passengers in the public vehicle. Honestly speaking, even people who are "loud" (ie. people who talk very loud and generally very talkative) is enough to put me off......

Honestly, I try to avoid them as much as possible . I don't really have a reason why except that I'm wary about them. I mean, they're not in their proper senses so they might do you harm or might do something mischievous like throwing something stinky at you. I've seen this happen back when I was in college this . I guess I'm just playing safe. It's a no-win situation for me if I get entangle with a deranged person.

I encountered one today and just moved away from him. Mental disorders are not predictable and you never know what might be going inside his or head, it is only save to keep a distance.

i will move away from that mentally disorder person. not that i look down on them but i am simply afraid of them. my mom said if they hurt me there's nothing i could do against them coz they are not covered by law.
