Black bus driver in Vancouver panicked when a passenger said ‘he should hang himself’ 

Post by Mark Fournier »

A Metro Vancouver bus driver has detailed “the worst night of his week” after a passenger suggested the driver should hang himself on Wednesday.

The incident was reported and is being investigated, Translink told the National Post. However, no additional comment or information was provided as transit police continue to investigate the matter.  The incident early last week is being investigated as an alleged hate-crime and happened when driver Ramgoat Buckaman, an employee of Coastal Mountain Company, was subjected to a series of disturbing statements on June 26, by a man who was a passenger on his bus.

Our media seem not to realize that there are mentally ill people out there who will blurt out various things almost at random.

We spent a few months dealing with a neighbour who was shouting out all sorts of bizarre things at us on the street whenever we might randomly meet (in a small town, quite frequently). It was all some big drama in his mind about our rejection of him based on not wishing to answer our door at midnight for some random request he had (for which we had no useful answer anyway).

I'm sure this bus driver ran into a similar sort of person. The media treat this as though white people all get together every morning and plan out what every white person will do for the rest of the day. That would be fairly time consuming.

Our society thinks it is fine to destroy mentally ill people if they say the wrong things.
