http://bostonherald.com ^ | 03/10/2013 | John Zaremba

Posted on 03/10/2013 11:07:27 AM PDT by massmike

An MBTA bus driver was pummeled by up to 15 attackers while on his route in Dorchester early yesterday, MBTA cops said.

The victim, identified as a 53-year-old man, was driving the Route 16 bus on Columbia Road at Geneva Avenue about 1:15 a.m. when a group of 10 to 15 youths boarded and began punching him, said MBTA police Superintendent in Chief Joseph O’Connor.

Cops are investigating but so far are baffled as to the motive.

Thank God that he wasn’t armed with a pistol and just a 10-round magazine. He wouldn’t have ever had time to change magazines to shoot the other five guys.

Oh well.

Probably the driver’s fault for having the audacity to drive into the wrong part of town with the wrong skin color . . . < / sarcasm >

If it had been a white youth gang, they would certainly have made that abundantly clear.
So the absence of information here is itself information...

If Sharpton and Jackson arrive on the scene we will know the bus driver was black and the perps were anything but minorities. In essence, if a black bus driver was beaten by whitey - Sharpton and Jackson WILL get involved. However, if the driver happens to be Caucasian, and the perps are black, Sharpton and Jackson will remain true to form and stay quiet as a mouse.

“..baffled as to the motive...’

punks don’t need a motive - they will beat up and/or kill on a whim. Wild dogs are more selective than these sub-humans.

As long as no “hate” was involved it’s not as bad. Of course except for the driver. I’ll bet he “hates” that route.

Right. Sure. I'll bet they are.

Likely they are just trying to cover up the logical identifying racial characteristics of the "youths". That is why there are no descriptions. Can't have people drawing the "wrong" conclusions, you know...

...which reminds me. Where did I hide that 30 round "unneccesary" magazine? I know it was around here someplace...

I DON’T CARE , Union bus driver in BAASTAAN beaten by Amish while driving a bus subsidized by MY gas tax dollars 1300 miles away in Florida ,, he probably voted for Obammy himself and laughs at Obamas racist taunts of the rest of us (YUP talking about you Mr. Holder). Hope they commandeer the bus next time and crash into a few hundred rich white racists and their cars in Copley Plaza.... or maybe full speed into a support pillar for the “big dig” or just set fire to the bus in a tunnel at about 4pm on a friday.... As long as it’s a bright BLUE town I’m good with it ...

I will really go out on a limb, and say, that is a pretty good bet.

"I will guess white driver, black gang of thugs."

(ahem) The investigation is centered on what it was the driver did to provoke the youths.

The article deliberately left out some pieces of information. FR readers know exactly what to put back in.

Don’t think you’ve got the right picture. Shaw, the one you show, is mentioned in another article on the site about his being accused of stealing credit cards from bus passengers. The driver beaten up hasn’t been named as yet.

It was a Mennonite driver and some Amish came to kick his butt...

The comments are right on the mark...white driver, 15 feral ‘yoots and no outrage from Jesse or Al.

Yes, and St. Trayvon the Bus Driver would be crowned...Wolf Blitzer’s knees would be knocking with excitement and PBS would have a special in a week about the bus driver and his rise to a unionized lifestyle thwarted by the evil White Man.

More like compliant thugs. They do what the elected politicians tell them to do. That's because you don't gather in mobs and scare the bejesus out of the politicians. Your fault dumb-ass.
