    1. I was always taught that spitting on someone is the worst thing that a person can do(outside of sh…tng on them) That girl was lucky that that the bus driver only cold-cocked her. I personnaly don’t think he should lose his job over it and that she should go to jail for inciting the action.

    2. I dont support hitting women, but this chick asked for it. She put herself in a mans place, and he treated her like one. People who disrupte the bus drive put everyone one the bus at risk. She was a clown and she got clowned…that was a wicked uppercut.

    3. That man does not deserve to lose his job. What do you think would happen if you get on an airplane and mouth off and spit on the pilot or any other employee on the plane? What do you think if you spit on any public service worker just trying to do their job? Spitting is a very, very nasty little habit. If you can’t control your spitting, you deserve to get punched right in your nasty mouth. Keep your spit in your mouth, your feet on the ground, and your hands to yourself; and we probably can all just get along.

    4. This had nothing to do with “hip hop culture.” Stop blaming hip hop for this. The young lady got on the bus, showed her ass, and got clocked. Not a damn thing to do with hip hop.

    5. To me, a 25 yr old woman spitting on a 59 yr old man is simular to spitting on one’s own father. I’m no armchair psychiatrist, but I smell “daddy issues” here. Can’t help but think she was transferring her anger of one man (subconscious, emotional image of her father) onto another. Merely prosecuting her for this assult is the societal easy way out. I don’t believe that a girl who was raised with the love and care of an upstanding father would behave in this manner. Her assault of the bus driver was a violent cry for help.

    6. i hope the bus driver gets his job back. or at least be able to get his retirement is need be. this is showing how pathetic our young people are getting. when we were kids we knew not to talk to adults like that. i give 5 thumbs up for him kicking her a&&.

    7. She was just down right disrespectful. She disrespected herself and the driver. It has nothing to do with hip hop culture, so tired of people saying that. If this had been two women the outcome would have been the same, she was dead wrong and her mouth wrote a check that her chin cashed. Noone has the right to spit on anyone. I have witnessed bus drivers being cursed out, called ni**er, and spit on, by different races and age groups, some people are just down right disrespectful.

    9. Ladies, I don’t care what you are trying to be, but respect your elders. Also know your place. I understand that most of you all mess with each other but that does mean that you should be trying to fight a man. Our young people don’t have much respect for elders these days. We need to make the older people that like to try to be young grow up and starting teaching the adolescene how to respect their elders. It didn’t make any sense for her to strike that bus driver and didn’t think he wouldn’t hit her back. Ladies when you walking around hear thinking you are a man then most men will treat you in that compacity. It is a sad situation when a grandfather had to discipline a young lady like she was a man. It is stressful trying to serve the public and be treated like shit by children. Parents we need to stop being affraid and start raising the children better and put God back in their lives. The devil is grabbing them and not letting go. Come on people!!!

    10. Damn!! What an uppercut. Was he a former boxer in his previous life?! He brought that punch way up from China! I’m surprised her head didn’t hit the ceiling. It’s obvious he was pissed. He hit her and then threw her raggety-ann @ss off the bus.

    11. In todays times these people are crazy, killings its at a all time high…All though i agree, not to hit women..But when you spit on someone thats the highest disrespect to me and she deserved that fine upper cut she got…. should have sat her azz down somewhere thats whats wrong with these kids and society now no repsect for elders their family on whoever else..Trust me let that heffa spit on you and see would you handle it the way you stated you would… I THINK NOT!!!!

    12. I don’t believe in a man putting their hands on a female, however, SPITTING on a person warrants you getting your A** beat. I can understand why he did not follow procedure and pull over, put her out or call for back-up. He should have done that when she first started with her mouth it may not have gotten as far as it did. Personally I can deal with any BS you have except for Spit then what you get is what you deserve. Again I don’t condone what he did, he was wrong but I understand it. There should be some type of punishment but I don’t think he should lose his job, remember he is human first, a man second and an employee last.

    14. Any man that hits a woman is a Punk A$$. And being a 22 year veteran he of all people should have known better and diffused the situation differently. He should be fired because he obviously can’t handle confrontations and his actions put everyone in danger, when all he had to do was put the woman off the bus.

    15. The bus driver did not deserve to get spit on or abused and the woman did not deserve to be hit. When this woman go on the bus without fare, why didnt the bus driver pull over and put her off the bus or call backup? When this woman continue to abuse this bus driver, why didnt he pull over and call backup? Two wrongs do not make a right. This man might lose his job of 22 years because of a stupid incident that could have been avoided on both ends.

    16. We had a similar incident in our city recently; an 18 year old male punched an older bus driver causing him to be momentarily unconcious. Male or female; does not matter; bad behavior warrants consequences.

    18. Typical product of the Hip Hop Culture. A man should never hit a woman. Howeverwe should grant this guy a waiver in this situation! LOL LOL

    19. A man’s hands do not belong on a woman at any time but in this case, he should have whipped her ass. My husband is a transit operator and I hear of all the rude and untolerable people that get on his bus. The way I see it… She got what she deserved.

    20. Although it’s sad, she got exactly what she deserves. She needs to do some jail time too. Whatever the RTA policy is no one has the right to spit on someone thinking there will be no repercussions just becasue that person is on their job…she SPIT on him! He should have whipped that @&*. Spit carries all kinds of germs and diseases.

    21. Just a correction to this story. The bus driver is not 22 years old. He is a 22-year veteran bus driver of RTA and the woman was a twenty-something passenger. I sympathize with the driver and hope he gets his job back, but as a 22 year veteran bus driver he should have known the RTA policy for dealing wiith unruly passengers and pulled his bus over and called dispatch for backup. Having said all this, you don’t allow folks to spit on you, I don’t care who they are. It’s the most disrespectful thing you can do to another human being.

    22. Im sorry this happen but this is a cause and effect situation,this lady was down right disrespectful and she cross the line by spitting and hitting the brother now i dont condone the hitting of a female but her action was the effect that happens in response to what she did,,it had so much people on this bus who could have diffuse this situation but instead they sit by and watch this clown disrespect tthis older man and only when pop’s clocked her did everyone jump up screeming she’s a female,,wow come on now again i dont condone the hitting of no one but are you for real,,, she got what she deserved now all the real females out there who knows how to carry themselves like a lady bless up

    23. Public transportation is the LEAST expensive form of transportation. If this is how she can get around, she needs to pay the, what???? $1.50 fee to ride the bus, get on the bus, find your seat, and keep your mouth shut. She was most definitely wrong for what she did.
