People are going to learn not to mess with these bus drivers. How many times do we have to keep seeing these things go down?
According to WJBK in Detroit, a passenger was quickly angered when her bus card got stuck in the scanner. That led to her screaming at the bus driver and eventually spitting on her.
Clearly, this passenger did not know what kind of bus driver she was dealing with that day.
The video starts with the passenger on the ground and apparently, she got there at the hands of the bus driver. As you can see in the video, a man is standing in between them but at the urging of other [male] passengers looking to record a fight, he got out the way to watch it happen.
After a few minutes of the passenger yelling to the bus driver, “You go’n pay for this b**ch,” she raises her purse to hit the bus driver. Well, in return, the bus driver uses her keys as a weapon and begins beating the woman mercilessly. Once she finally has the passenger pinned down, it seems like help comes from every angle on the bus – the same people who were initially watching and hoping they’d see a fight.
The passenger was removed by what looks like a fast food worker who hopped on the bus to help. WJBK says police were called but the fight was already over; passengers were also moved to a new bus.
Now, I know what many of you think: the bus and train operators are supposed to show more restraint when things like this happen and let authorities take care of it. But when someone spits in your face and is ready to further attack you, that’s the last thing you’re thinking about. The bus driver obviously felt she had to defend herself.
How crazy! You can see the extended version of the argument and fight here. What’s even more shocking is how it seemed like a bus full of men who didn’t even have the decency to try and stop the fight so they could all get to work just to get some online hits for their video.
