Posted on 04/23/2011 12:09:16 PM PDT by Altura Ct.
A passenger with autism was attacked on a San Bernardino bus and the assault was caught on tape. It happened near 15th Street and Medical Center Drive on April 10. Police are asking for the public's help finding the suspect.
Surveillance video from onboard an Omnitrans bus on Sunday, April 10, just after 5 p.m. The suspect can be seen walking up and boarding the bus.
After a short conversation w More..ith the bus driver, the suspect deposits his money, and walks toward the back of the bus to find a seat.
That's when for some reason he becomes agitated with one passenger. Police say that man has autism.
The suspect continued to threaten the victim, telling him to be quiet. Then, without warning, the suspect punched the victim.
The suspect pushes the victim toward the front of the bus, and then out the front door. Later, the suspect gets off the bus and continues to threaten the victim.
The victim pleaded with the suspect to stop.
Detectives in the San Bernardino Police Department say they're sickened.
"It was clearly an assault that has really kind of affected our detectives. They very much would like to find this guy," said San Bernardino Police Lt. Jarrod Burguan. "The victim does not have any life-threatening injuries. He was treated and released. He has several stitches in his face and his lips. He has since been interviewed by our detectives. Clearly, because of his disabilities and such, he has no idea why this occurred to him. He doesn't understand, necessarily, why this occurred or what provoked it."
But as for the suspect, so far police haven't had any luck in catching up with him. He's described as a black man, about 35 to 40 years old, standing 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 190 pounds, wearing a black baseball cap with the letters "IE."
It's been a week and a half and police still have no idea who the assault suspect is.
If you recognize the suspect, you're asked to call San Bernardino Police at (909) 384-5637.
UPDATE -- 5:30 p.m., April 21, 2011: Someone saw the story and recognized the suspect, called a law enforcement friend, who then called San Bernardino Police.
Ronald Jackson, 44, of San Bernardino was already in San Bernardino Police custody on a charge of carjacking. Jackson was positively identified. Charges were expected to be filed Friday against him.
more feral behavior...
wake up crackas!
This makes me cry. Developmentally disabled adults are so proud of themselves for getting around. They have to use public transportation. To abuse these people is so ungodly and disgusting.
Reason number 9083218903127302917312 as to why mass transit sucks.
And the “hate crime” investigation begins...when, now?
Very well said, Yaelle.
more feral behavior...
wake up crackas!
I’d bet $20.00 that that bastard is a member of a Union.
As the father of an autistic child this is particularly disgusting and enraging to me.
I just wished this guy had gone Lennie vs Curley on this scumbag.
Our old, weak, unaware, mentally challenged, and women are being disproportionately targetted for this unbridled rage.
And people without such disabilities "and such:" -DO- have an idea why?
I will bet you 2000.00 he is an unemployed former prisoner...with 9 kids and is cranky cuz Obama is NOT doling out enough white tax payer money for a “cooshie” life...
and the bastard KNOWS...the racist tea party is going to make things worst because Obama can not continue the gravy train...
folks the biscuit wheels have come off the gravy train and blacks America is getting ANGRY!
Lashing out and attacking the weak..
lashing out and attacking a frail tranny...women and disable people...
ALL interstingly enough...
...wearing a black baseball cap with the letters “IE”
Another case of “Internet Explorer Rage Syndrome”
Curse that flimsy browser! When will this madness end?
Thanks, but no description was necessary--either of the perp or the victim. It was obvious from the nature of the crime.
So another video of a black beating up a white.
” standing 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 190 pounds, wearing a black baseball cap” and bares a close resemblance to your standard variety black bowling ball.
Besides this making me sick and wanting to cry, I am really pissed off! So sad for the person that got hit and that women bus driver should be FIRED on the spot! She just said there and let it happen!
So I guess this means no more public transportation (as this is happening all over) or McDonald now!
He's a member of Brotherhood of Carjackers International Local 175.
” bares a close resemblance”
I think that should be “bears.”
Lions seek their advantage in stalking the weaker members of the herd, the young, old, and sickly.
From another FReeper’s post:
After the McD’s video and an incident I had with a car load of black women at my local supermarket this past Sunday, I say its not far away!
I have noticed that the brazen aggression, especially with black women, has gotten outright bold. As if they now expect the white population to serve them, give them everything.
As far as the incident..I was parked at the supermarket, sipping my coffee, front parking spot next to handicap. She pulled into the handicap taking 2 handicap spaces and got out of her suv screaming at me that she wanted my spot! Next thing I saw were doors opening (tinted windows) and 3 other black trash ho’s coming out screaming at me.
I left because I know that there is no camera facing that area of parking. 4 against one on paper witness statements?
I left with all 4 of their fat behinds running after me.
