I don't understand this.. it frustrates the hell out of me that no one does anything about this. people get beaten in the course of doing their job and they can't do anything about it.

it amazes me how little the law does or cares about victims of these types of crime.. 'ZOMG 11 months JAIL' for beating the crap out of someone for no reason!? really? isn't there a good chance that someone who has such a low regard for people likely to be violent to anyone?

I mean on one hand everyone is outraged when someone king hits someone else and kills them "because it was the alcohol's fault".. What don't you think these types of people might be the same kind that attack bus drivers and vulnerable people? where's the outrage about that?

I was just reading a news article about a 57 year old bus driver who was assaulted
http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/2012/12/17/17/55/us-wine-maker-jailed-for-bus-driver-assault

Then end of the article is what really pisses me off..

John Olsen, who has been assaulted 11 times, has since retired.


This man has been assaulted 11 times... 11 frelling times.. that is disgraceful.. what the f*** is wrong with people?

People don't need mental health problems to assault/abuse you. Just take any job in the service industry and you'll soon find out that, in general, people are s***.

Not just while doing their jobs, we can't even touch criminals who come into our homes, we just have to ask them nicely to let us leave while they ransack the place. F*** that noise I say. We should all be allowed to carry guns and shoot burglars on the spot.

Name them and publish their photos. Shame them.
considering they're probably doing it as a test to become part of a gang, all this will do is reinforce their status as a total badass among their fellow gang members.

Not sure if serious.. either way, i don't think shooting people is the answer, I also don't think that taking the power to defend ones self out of their hands is fair. I don't think that its fair that someone can beat the crap out of someone and if the person fights back, the perpetrator can sue.

I think the laws need to be changed, people like bus drivers, cab drivers, nurses etc, should be allowed to carry pepper spray to defend them selfs.

it sucks, these people are just doing a job, and some f***wit who evolution left behind gets to go around hurting people and no one gives these people any kind of help.

F*** this s***.

actually heres my a****** bus driver story..

bus gets to airport which was the end of the line - it was at a time when the bus route had changed and I had to catch a connecting bus to amsterdam.. so as i'm getting out i ask the driver if he knows where the connecting bus leaves from.. (literally there less then 10 secs) instead of answering.. he mumbles something about not having to answer stupid questions.. closes the door.. with me on the bus.. and drives off.. so i'm like wtf.. where are we going.. he says back to depot.. so i say.. stop the bus and let me off.. he says no.. luckily he didnt actually go back to depot.. but did a 5 min turnaround route and pulled up on the other side of the bus stop...

if he had of gone back to some random depot and told me to f*** off.. he prob would have got an ass whooping.. not from me.. i'm a wimp.. but someone big and strong would have come to my aid.. like the guy in the video..

from my experience in retail sale / IT Helpdesk etc.. I know people are c****. people working in any kind of services industry know have to deal with c**** all day every day, asking stupid questions and being asshats in general.

so i don't blame them for being short with people.. ever heard of the internet look up your f*****g rout its not hard, as a matter of fact you can find out everything you need to know just by going to the website.

how about the nurses that are just trying to treat people and find themselves getting punched / bashed in hospital? do they also deserve to get assaulted DK?

What about if you were having a bad day and you didn't feel like doing something you had no obligation of doing, would you deserve to be beaten?

Unless the driver is a people-punching c***, no he didn't. You don't get to beat the s*** out of people because you don't like their 'tude.

The TWU says bus driver abuse is so commonplace, at least six incidents are reported each week on the Gold Coast alone.
