Cleveland bus driver suspended after video shows him punching female passenger during argument

By Associated Press, Saturday, October 13, 5:08 AM

A Cleveland transit bus driver has been suspended after a video surfaced that shows him punching a female passenger in the face.
The Regional Transit Authority in Cleveland says the confrontation happened three weeks ago but didn’t know about it until seeing the video.
The agency said Friday that the bus driver is a 22-year veteran of the Regional Transit Authority and was suspended immediately. His name hasn’t been released.
A video posted on YouTube shows the 25-year-old woman and the driver arguing at the front bus before he got out of his seat and punched her.
The bus agency has apologized to the woman. She did not file charges.

Story discussed on 'The Young Turks'.
Warning: the violence in the video is very graphic.

She should be the one apologizing. She went after him.

Why all the mention that the passenger is female? What does that have to do with anything?

She most certainly deserved what she got. She appeared to be pretty young, he mentioned his granddaughter so he must not be a spring chicken. It was clear that she made the first contact, there was her equal rights she received for her actions.

I saw that and thought of Noob Saibot "Toasty" when you do a uppercut in Mortal Kombat!

Damn, can't say i'd hit a woman (definitely not like that, maybe I would have thrown her off the bus) but dammmmmnnnnnnn. I know I've WANTED to hit a woman like that though, some women know they wont get hit so they take a bit over the top too.

I saw 2 girls picking on this smaller guy at the park (he's a short guy) and he was walking away from them and for like 20 mins they kept harassing him. Finally he turned around and dropped kicked one of the girls in the chest and the other ran away. Almost everyone in the park was clapping. LOL

I agree that the lady was being incredibly annoying and abusive towards the driver, however I don't believe there is any excuse for hitting a woman. Call my old fashioned, but that's just the way I feel.

Also. he looks like a pretty big guy - he surely could have just thrown her off the bus?

Equality and Equal rights... You hit someone - you should expect to get hit back... man or woman..

She rightly deserved it.

MANY MANY times i wish i would have done this to my ex-wife... looking back now, after all the years of physical abuse and hitting she did, if I went through it again, i would not hesitate to do exactly what he did.
