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

    The woman got what she deserved.The bus driver should be congratulated.

    Cleveland Bus Driver Suspended After Decking Unruly Female Rider With Brutal Bolo Punch | The Smoking Gun
    A Cleveland municipal bus driver has been suspended after video surfaced this week showing him decking a mouthy female rider with a bolo punch.
    The confrontation between the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) worker and the unidentified woman was apparently filmed by another rider. It is unclear from the above clip, however, what triggered the dispute.
    [WARNING: The video is peppered with curse words and racial slurs.]
    The driver of bus 2802 leaves his seat after the woman appears to strike him. "You going to jail now," the driver says twice before throwing an uppercut that knocks the woman to the ground.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    One couldn't see how/if she hit him. I'll assume she did. But she hit him and moved away. She broke off the assault. He can't do that. She was guilty of assault, if she struck him. He was guilty of assault as well.

    I am not sure that assaulting someone and walking back a few feet counts as breaking off the assault.

    Maybe so.

    Absolutely not. His inflicted about 100x what she inflicted upon him, 10000x what was necessary to end the dispute, and for no reason other than because he was pissed at her. Despicable, and she is correct that he may very well be going to jail now, too.

    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.

    You think it's physically impossible for a man to act with equal or less force than a woman? I assure you, it is not, if you have even a modicum of self-control. And watch the video again, there was nothing defensive about this incident.



    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.
    "She hit me, so I hit her" is a defense for third graders, not grown men (and women). And I counted at least six second, where he slowly pulled himself out of his chair, took several steps toward her, while she just stood there, reeled back and whacked her as hard as he could. Then he grabbed her, by the hair, and threw her headfirst out of the bus, without bothering to close the door behind her. "there is no telling how much long she would have went on"? Seriously? It was over, and he was not in the least bit worried about defending anything except his ego.

    He's definitely in the wrong here.

    From what I can see she was chirping... He was chirping back (which he shouldn't have been doin, he should have ignored here).

    She did probably hit him, he stood up... Had plenty of time, Lined up the shot and took it.

    This was not an act of self defense, this was assault and as much as that woman may very well be a horrible person, two wrongs do not make a right Jamesrage.

    He should have beaten her some more. Preferably the same number of punches as the times she hit him... as hard as he could.

    Then, if she lived, she'd have learned a valuable lesson: "Don't start a fight with someone who can break you in half, dumbass."


    So she was a woman, BFD. She assaulted someone, she should have expected retaliation. Studies show 1/3rd of all domestic violence is begun by the female, btw.

    I keep seeing bumper stickers saying "Real men don't hit women." In the sense of real men don't beat a woman for burning the potroast, I agree. But I always feel this strange urge to take a paintbrush and add underneath it: "and SMART WOMEN don't hit men!"

    You realize the thread says he "decked her with a Bolo Pun", right?

    I was trying to figure out how a pun could knock someone down... perhaps it was something like the Ultimate Joke?




    I'm still trying to figure out what a "Bolo Punch" is... only bolos I know about are either a rock-and-string thingy you throw to capture an animal, a bad necktie, or a SE Asian machete.
