Yes. It's distracting to him and irritating to others
In some circumstances I suppose
I'm not sure
No, children cry sometimes, they have a right to ride the bus

I don't have all the answers, raising children does not come with a notebook but I am 99.9% certain that I would not have a out of control toddler. Discipline and rules is something any child in contact with me are aware of ... quickly. I would not stand for any child of mine to talk back, I do not follow this doctrine many other parents have of no 'hitting/spanking' your child. I would not hesitate to dish out physical discipline if necessary
And yes on the question, drivers reserve the right to kick out irresponsible people. Having a toddler does not make you immune.
A child is a reflection of the parent. If a child is out of control, you failed in your job as a parent

Taking an ambulance for an ear infection is a gross misuse of public funds.
The driver has the "I'm the boss" card here and as such is beyond reproach.
The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
