Is it really possessed or just on drugs or mentally ill?
'Possessed' woman attacks fellow passenger on train before being arrested.
"A young woman can be seen behaving strangely and fighting with a fellow passenger on the Edmonton Transit System (ETS) in the video.It shows the same woman retrieving a cellphone from her bag and putting it back before she arches her head, puts her hands to her hair and growls.
The woman then leans to her right and grabs the throat of the male
passenger sitting next to her, and appears to punch him with her other hand before he pushes her off. The pair tangles more before she lets go and heads for the train doors.The man then confronts her and another struggle ensues as he pushes her and she tries to kick him.
The tussle continues until Transit Peace Officers arrive and attend to both of them.City of Edmonton spokeswoman Cheryl Oxford confirmed to Global News that two people were involved in an altercation on a train. Officers were doing rounds at the Churchill LRT station when the incident occurred, the network reported.
"As you see on the video, the transit officers reacted quickly and
appropriately and were able to ensure the safety of the passengers as soon as they were able to intervene," Oxford said.
Both individuals were issued $500 fines for fighting in public. Edmonton police are not investigating at this time, the network said."

Kind of a stupid decision to get up and go after her like that after she had left him alone. I guess I might have trouble restraining myself, too, though, if some random person grabbed my throat.

If someone grabbed my throat the minimum response would be pushing them away from me depending on the force applied. If they kept coming back I would probably attempt to disable / immobilize them unless I felt threatened for my life.
He should have pushed her off of himself initially instead of waiting and coming at her like that afterwards.
Anyways they both deserved a fine if you ask me, the female should have been locked up until she sobered up.
She's not "possessed", she's mentally ill. She may be high on drugs, too. But she's definitely missing a few screws.
Also, the fact that nobody tried to help is beyond me. But I guess you don't know how you'd react unless you were in that situation yourself.
The only hard feelings should be in your pants
