Man Beats Bus Driver, Tastes Driver’s Blood

The surveillance video starts with the bus driver repeatedly telling a belligerent passenger to get off the bus. It happened on an Intercity Transit bus, Route 47 in Olympia Tuesday afternoon.

“When I got on, he was shouting obscenities,” said River Nason, who was one of several riders on the bus watching the situation escalate.

The driver eventually pulled over and walked to the back of the bus.

You can hear the driver yell “Get off my bus!” and “Why don’t you leave?” repeatedly to the passenger.

The passenger finally walks to the exit, but refuses to leave. The driver then tried pushing the passenger out the door.

That’s when the passenger starts punching him repeatedly in the face and the chest.

Nason tries to step in to stop the beating, but there was one frightening moment that made him back off. The bus driver was bleeding and the attacker actually tasted his blood.

“That was the point that I said ‘I’m getting out of here,’” said Nason. “I’m stepping off the bus.”

Campus Cop Gone Bad: Kills Unarmed Student Who Said “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?”

“I heard (a man) say, ‘Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?’ like sarcastic almost,” said Mohammad Haidarasl, 22, who was on his couch in his ground-floor unit at the Treehouse Apartments in Alamo Heights at about 2 a.m.

Less than a minute later, Haidarasl heard four to six gunshots.

“I jumped up and hid in my closet,” he said.

Haidarasl didn’t look out the window until he heard emergency vehicles converging on the quiet apartment complex. It wasn’t until later that he realized the person shot was his upstairs neighbor, whom he described as “the nicest guy.”

[Robert Cameron] Redus, 23, would have graduated from UIW in May, university officials said. He was on the dean’s list in fall 2012 and spring 2013, the university’s website noted.

…He launched into his story again, explaining that he heard the officer say more than once, “Stop resisting, stop resisting.”

He thought he heard a struggle, he said.

“Then the cop said, ‘I’m going to shoot,’” Haidarasl said.

And that, Haidarasl added, was what garnered the off-handed, sarcastic comment from their neighbor.

Then the silence, followed by gunfire.
