Skip to comments.Bus driver forced gay couple to sit at back of the bus for holding hands

Ron McCoy and his partner Christopher Bowers boarded the shuttle bus from Albuquerque's Sunport Airport after flying in from their home in Portland, Oregon, the day before the Albuquerque Pride Festival began on June 28.
The couple was in town for a long-awaited road-trip, but their elation soon turned to dismay when the driver of the bus noticed they were holding hands and told them to sit at the back.
When they arrived at their destination, they had recovered enough to question the driver on his actions.
A fellow passenger witnessed the incident and gave the driver a piece of her mind.
'I told the bus driver that I was completely appalled that anybody would be treated this way,' Bernadette Aguirre told KRQE.
'And the driver looks back at us and goes, "I'll show you what's appalling," and he points to us,' McCoy said.
Standard Parking manager Bill Alberti told KRQE that the driver's conduct was inappropriate, but that he just 'overstepped a little bit'. The driver is still working for Standard Parking.
Alberti said following the incident, all drivers will undertake sensitivity and non-harassment training.
According to Alibi, the driver told them he told the couple to move because he didn't want 'women and children' to see the couple's 'inappropriate behavior.' He refused to comment further on what he felt was inappropriate.
McCoy says he and his partner have filed a complaint with the American Civil Liberties Union.

McCoy says no one has attempted to apologize to him or Bowers, and says neither he nor his partners have any closure from the upsetting experience.
These two remind me of the Australian pedophile couple who raped that Russian baby. VERY creepy looking.
I’m guessing that there was a lot more than hand holding going on.
It is the fudgepackers who are the bullies.
Oh, how sad. They’re upset and deprived of closure.
that struck me too. I get it that they were annoyed at being called out on public display of affection, but they really require someone to provide “closure”???
Bernadette Aguirre would be praising the bus driver if the two were holding hands in prayer.
The driver should have thought on his feet quicker. When questioned about why he did it, he should have innocently said something like,”I saw you holding hands and I was concerned that some redneck passenger who noticed it might assault you. I was just trying to protect your safety.”
Do actions really seep into outward appearance?
"all drivers will undertake sensitivity and non-harassment training."
Oh for the good ol’ days when they would have been thrown off the bus for an open display of homosexuality.
Obviously. A bus driver isn't going to notice simply inconspicuous hand holding. I'm sure these faggots were in-your-face disgusting.
” The(y) almost never look like normal people.”
I think you’ve answered your own question, don’t you? 8^)
Make that pedophiles.
I’ve been wondering that myself. Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Jared Loughner. They all looked like nutjobs, didn’t they?
Really makes you worry about Al Frankenstein, who looks like something from a toxic waste dump.
They need attention. That’s why they were carrying on in public, sufficient to be noticed by someone driving a bus at the time.
Careful, she probably wants to have your baby and abort it.
Communist manifesto item here.
Swirling down the toilet faster by the day. Wait until after 8yrs of shrillery.
The Rosa Parks story is the stuff of legend now.
I couldn’t imagine a gay couple seeking attention coming up with a better tale.
They look it. Amazing how obvious these freaks are.
The driver should be given a promotion, that mouthy broad should be banned from the bus, and the pencil-necked geeks responsible for the “sensitivity” training should be fired - as sensitively as possible of course.
This is INSANITY!!! KIds should NOT be required to view these perverts.
“Why do these perverts almost always LOOK creepy?”
Because they are creepy. Creepy, @$$ crackers.
Settlement $$$$$$$$$s will do just fine, thank you.
It’s none of anybody’s business what these folks do in private. Yet they were on their way to a “festival” celebrating “pride” - presumably about how they behave sexually, in private.
Good for the bus driver. In the meantime, on the Free Republic Internet forum, posters argue that ‘gay’ is the proper term when referring to pederasts!
Beyond absurd. Flouting uncontrolled homo-erotic practices in public is UN-acceptable. This is about an institutionalize declaration of war against whites, heterosexual Christians, the US Constitution, and...Common Sense. And this declaration come FROM THE TOP.
Meanwhile, there is no such thing as "sensitivity and non-harassment training", arrests, or civil and social chastisement for the homosexual fascists who march on heterosexual businesses like Chick-fil-A, those fascist homos-nazis who spit IN and ON Churches, and shove around little old ladies and nuns in the name of "airport security"...And certainly NO "sensitivity and non-harassment training" for out-of-control feral black yoots who play "Beat-the sh*t-outta-Whitey" every day of the week....
This Nation has been hijacked by anti-Christ, subversive elements up and down the food-chain of command and power. Either this pathetic effete Republic dies under the weight of its own corruption, evil, and cowardice, OR a ferocious backlash by the righteous of ALL stripes clean up the exhibitionism of putrid perverts and animals, our streets are finally hosed down clean, and we start from scratch.
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" ~ Isaiah 5:20
He refused to comment further on what he felt was inappropriate.
Probably grouping each other. They try to be as obnoxious as possible to gain attention.
This is more subversive, politically motivated reporting by a pathologically lying Media.
The Media can't be trusted to report, "The sky is blue today!".
A side observation: from the article, we don’t learn anything about the driver: ie. gender, race, ethnicity, etc. My guess is that the driver is *NOT* a white male (or a “white Hispanic” for that matter:-). If so, I’d bet we’d know a lot more about him.
Albuquerque must have been infiltrated by the California out-migration.
Overt PDA is disrespectful of others be the people doing the PDA are same sex or normal.
Was thinking the same thing - made me wonder why these guys actually got up and moved to the back of the bus — they must have thought it was the safer thing to do.
That was my first thought. What are they going to teach the driver in Reeducation Camp? "Let gay passengers hold hands, and kids are just going to have to view it, and parents are just going to have to explain it to their kids whether they wanted to or not"?
They should have made that left turn at Albuquerque....straight for San Francisco.
You would be correct in your assumption. Driver’s name is in one of those articles. I looked up a Mychael Jones in Albuquerque (found the facebook).
“In the meantime, on the Free Republic Internet forum, posters argue that gay is the proper term when referring to pederasts!”
I call them ‘child rapists’. Which is what they are.
Anyone who questions me on that I call “Willing Co-Conspirator”. Which is what they are.
I mean “The Gay Revolutionary” by Michael Swift (a pseudonym).
They already live in gay paradise in Portland, OR - need to spread the JOY!
I am on the bus drivers side. He should have tossed them off the bus.
Probably a dyke or a goody two shoes nosy liberal.
Sounds like seeing two men fawn over each other was an upsetting experience for the driver, too. When will these faggots help him get some “closure”?
If so, we'd know that he was fired.
oh go in the closet and hug yourself, you wusses. mommy mommy they weren't nice to me.
There was nothing good about those days.
She has a girlfriend, watch out.
The bus driver should be praised, he did a good thing. Protect the eyes of the innocent. Last year my wife and I were swinging our grandchild on a swing at a children's playground. Two lesbian women made it a point to sit at a bench fifteen feet away and began lustily making out, fondling each other. I went over, got into their faces and chewed them out. (Not that kind of chewing out!) I yelled in their faces for being perverts and to get their filthy act out of there. They want to display perverted stuff within the view of children, to indoctrinate them.
This “story” is completely made up BS.
