The Cleveland bus driver that punched this young lady has now been suspended.
“RTA saw the video posted on YouTube of the operator incident on October 11. Through the investigation, we believe the incident occurred on Sept. 18. Upon identifying the driver, he was immediately suspended and removed from duty. His behavior is absolutely unacceptable.
RTA apologizes to our customers for this incident. A full investigation continues.”
A video has surfaced on the oh so fabulous World Star Hip Hop website, which contains footage of a young girl and a middle-aged bus driver having a verbal confrontation, but it quickly turns physical. As the confrontation escalates, the bus driver upper-cuts the young lady. I will say that it looks like she hits him first, but I’m not totally sure. HOWEVER, come on now- she’s a young girl. He didn’t have to punch her; he should have stopped the bus and called the police. The punch is so hard that you can hear it. But she didn’t have to be so disrespectful or hit him first.
What gets me is the fact that there are people on the bus that laugh at the incident, and don’t try to intervene until she gets knocked out. I mean the other male just stands there and watches. People we have got to do better.
Folks need to learn how to keep their hands to themselves and their mouths closed.
Don’t let your mouth write a check your ass can’t cash.
