Bus driver is attacked by a group of assailants in broad daylight on Nicollet Mall. But remember, everything's fine downtown!
Remember, each individual indecent always indicates a trend!

If this were just a random guy taking a swing at some other random guy, it would be easier to just rationalize it away. But to have an environment where a group of people feel that this is something that they can do to what is essentially a bystander, and maybe even get away with, is just stunning.

But yes, by all means, write this off as just being a fluke if that fits better into your preferred political narrative.

Ah, yes, I'm the one with a political narrative.

Young men do stupid things sometimes, and few things are more stupid than assaulting a bus driver next to the bus (many cameras) on Nicollet Mall (cameras at every corner). Some or all of them will be prosecuted. It doesn't say anything about the "environment."

Pretty ballsy to throw out the 'political narrative' card in a post that implies there's a "group of people" who are a-okay with bus driver assaults.

The group of people in question is, in fact, the group of people on the video who were assaulting the bus driver. No need for the scare quotes, thanks.
