    not that I condone it, but I guess he just got fed up with the disrespectful, unruly passengers and noone doing anything about it

    I just read an article almost completely devoid of information and “j” is able to determine the passenger was responsible. Based on who was charged it looks as though the driver had crossed the line.

      “I just read an article almost completely devoid of information ”

      This is one of their better reporting acomplishments.
      Some of their stories are so lacking, they are more irritating than informative.
      Ya’ get what you pay for.

    I agree with outkast this type of thing happens all the time I have a family member who drives for mta some people who ride the bus is so rude and disrespectful like one time a bus rider spit on the busdriver and mta police try to cover it up that job is no different then being a police your life is on the line everyday and what’s sad is it haven’t always been that way do you know when the young people ride the bus some of them don’t even offer there seat to the elderly! Are you serious? That’s crazy out of respect they need to!
