attacking the train surfers

Indonesia has found a new weapon in its effort to derail the "train surfers" who ride on the tops of the rail cars. Dangling concrete balls that might deliver a serious blow have been hung over the tracks, intending to scrape off all who are not able or willing to sit in the crowded interiors. The 16-inch gap between the balls and to rail car roof will be revised downward, authorities have said. A roof rider who has eluded several earlier inventions said simply, "We always win."

  1. I see...it's illegal to ride on top of the train but not illegal to use dangling concrete balls to knock people off the top of the train, thereby maiming and possibly killing them.
