Bus drivers behind the wheel and under attack

Nov 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Kansas City Star

Maybe you saw the surveillance video on TV or You Tube. A Kansas City bus operator goes about his business behind the wheel when suddenly he’s coldcocked.Some punk, angry that he and his buddies got booted for not paying their fares, left the driver dazed and bloody.Three weeks later, it happens again.

Obviously Obama voters who thought they were 'entitled' to a free ride along with their free obamafome.
This is what happens when the rules don't matter anymore and there are no consequences for thuggish behavior. It's only going to get worse.
Go armed, be safe.

The cage thing is a good idea, but maybe bullet proof glass. that way they could still see out and watch traffic.

I also BELIEVE with the poster..THAT stated ONLY in America. ALL bout the GIMMEE GENERATION..the values have been replaced with "I FREAKIN' don't care about you.."IT'S WHAT I "THINK" I should be entitled to. America has babysat their mothers and father's for many years, so growing up in a bottle fed country..only means THAT it's harder to wean these kiddies nowadays. THEY want EVERYTHING..even a FREE RIDE..afterall, WHY SHOULD IT STOP, just because a public transportation driver says" Ya gotta pay to ride". HELL NO! They are USED to getting their way, and WILL use body language and their fists to cause terror on their intended victims. Blame the system, the system WAS to help those needed, honest to God help..NOT to babysit!

"Every few days, a transit worker somewhere in the United States is attacked."

When a passenger puts his/her hands on a bus driver, they deserve the full force of a fist in their faces and to be put in JAIL.

In the meantime protect these drivers by putting them behind a shield and give them a zapper so they can push a button and taze the fark out of these aholes.

My solution would be to allow the drivers to carry guns and kill these worthless scumbags.

The difference between Obama supporters and Romney supporters is simple.
Romney supporters write the checks, and Obama supporters endorse and cash the checks

Lol at the comments. This isn't anything new. It's been going on for decades as part of gang initiations.

Part of the bhus drivers training should be geared towards being able to take a punch. This type of action is normal in our society, so bus drivers must adapt.

That's true. Also "honor" killings which are unfortunately increasing. Sad that people are still so backwards in this day and age.
