“She Wanna Act Like A Man, Ima Treat You Like A Man”: Cleveland Bus Driver Upper Cuts Teenage Girl

October 12, 2012  |  

I don’t know how many times, we have to tell these kids to leave people alone. But they just will not learn. And the latest example of teenage ratchetness comes from a teenage girl in Cleveland, Ohio. It all started as a verbal altercation that went left once the bus driver mentioned the girl’s personal appearance. He mentions a scar on her face saying that “it looked like her face got sliced up.” Apparently, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The teenage girl lunges at the bus driver, putting her hands on him in some way.

Since it’s a federal offense to put your hands on public transportation operators, the bus driver tells her, as he’s standing up that she’s “going to jail now.” What happens next is probably nothing like you’ve ever seen. The bus driver, squares up, and upper cuts the girl in her chin, knocking her backward. I know I just described it; but to see it is something entirely different. Watch the video below.

This little girl is something else. I don’t know about you but if a man knocked me out, I’d stay down for a good minute. Since the man threw her stuff off the bus as well, you’d think she’d quietly collect her belongings and take her behind home. But that’s clearly not the type of girl she is. Apparently, the bus driver was awaiting her return and snatched her ponytail, put his hands around her neck and threw her to the ground.

When one of the other passengers reminded him that he was attacking a “female,” the bus driver responded quite matter of factly.

“I don’t care. She wanna to be a man, I’ma treat you like a man.”

So, I know some of you are ready and willing to debate who was right in this situation, did the girl deserve it or not? Well, I’m here to tell you everybody in this situation was dead.azz.wrong. The girl was wrong for arguing and then putting her hands on the bus driver. Certainly, but for him to get out of his seat and hit her like a grown man in a street fight was completely uncalled for. She would have already been arrested, if he had just found some way to put her off the bus, you know without the uppercut, then maybe I would be a bit more sympathetic. But clearly, neither one of them knew how to act, so it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out if it ends up going to court.

What do you think about this video, did the bus driver take it too far? (Duh?!) Did the girl deserve it?
