    I don't blame him for hitting her, she hit him first (or at least it seemed like she did). And he obviously didn't hit her all that hard, since she got right back on the bus and continued fighting with him.

    Where I think the guy was in the wrong, and the transit authority was absolutely justified in firing him, was in his unprofessional behavior before it got physical. She was being a giant bitch, no doubt about it, but he wasn't responding in a professional manner. He should have just ignored her, or told her to go sit down. Instead he responded with insults and threats and escalated the situation until it got violent.

    See even now you are restraining yourself calling her a lady.

    Don't feel bad about it, we all have. And it's good conditioning, because men need to restrain themselves around women. But this woman gave up that special privilege. The bus driver restrained himself, because if she were a man she would have been bleeding, had busted teeth, and wouldn't be talking.

    Cleveland Bus Driver Suspended After Decking Unruly Female Rider With Brutal Bolo Pun

    I'm kind of mixed on this. She definitely deserved to be put in her place but it did come across as unprofessional of him.

    I don't like the fact that women (some) think they should be able to strike a man and be immune from retaliation.

    Actions have consequences ( which she must have been able to avoid for most of her life if she thought that was acceptable behavior ).

    The driver was wrong to hit her, but she clearly has judgment issues.
    She believed she could challenge, yell at, and even strike the driver without consequence.
    Most of us, by junior high, learn that in social interactions, there are boundaries, that if crossed can result in our own pain.
    We also learn how to not cross those boundaries.

    She hit him that is why he hit her.There was only a few seconds between when she hit him and he hit her,so there is no telling how much long she would have went on if he didn't defend himself.
    Dude, come on. She gave him a slap that didn't hurt him at all so he pulls out the finishing move from mortal combat and knocks her chin off and you think that's what needed to happen? He shouldn't have been arguing with her like that in the first place. If she was too rowdy, he should have told her to get off the bus.

    Admittedly, after listening to her through that video I was getting excited to see someone shut her up, lol.
