I’m going to share it here, with a warning – there is offensive language and physical violence that might be offensive to some.
I have seen a few versions of the video, and it isn’t clear to me why the bus driver and passenger started fighting. Unfortunately, both of them could have taken the high road at any point, and it would have avoided this tragedy.
Yes, the passenger was loud and rude; however, instead of shooting her rudeness back, he should have stopped the bus, called the police, and settled it like a grown man. However, he took the lowest of the low roads, uppercutting and dragging a woman half his size.
I think this is a true act of cowardice on the man’s part. I’m sure he wouldn’t have reacted this way if the rude passenger were a man twice his size, because he would have gotten knocked out.
I think what bothers me even more are the number of people, men and women, who support what the bus driver did, and cheer when he says “If you want to act like a man, I’ll treat you like a man.” Yes, this woman was being disruptive and had to be dealt with, but NOT like this.
Shame on the women who think this was ok. I just hope you never find yourselves on the receiving end of an uppercut from a man twice your size – you’ll change your minds quickly, I bet.
Minus 1,000 points for humanity on this one.
